Hey Folks,

I bought a few sets of MB cabinet artwork over the past few years for past and future restores, although I am very tempted to keep theses, I know someone out there would probably kill to get their hands on a set of originals for their no expense spared high end MB restoration. Anyone that has ever done a side by side comparison of the originals verses any of the reproductions knows that the originals are leaps and bounds better is all aspects... especially in color, vibrancy and sheen.

Mr. Pinball Australia sells the inkjet next gen style decals for about $660 shipped to the US and from my understand the supply is very limited, with IPB owning the rights and sitting on their hands it will be years to never before those reproductions are available again and those don’t compare in quality to the originals either. Also many may think that the original decals are what caused all the MB cabinets to wrinkle in the first place, which is simply not the case, the problem came from the white base vinyl Williams used on MB and CC when they were forced to decal the cabinets in house after the company that did the artwork and installation went on strike.

I think they are worth at least twice what the next gen reproductions sell for, at least the side by side comparison would dictate that. With that being said I will part with this 5 piece original Williams silk screened set for the first $1200 or best offer (higher or lower) in the next 24 hours…with free shipping fully insured. If the price police don’t like my asking price, you are free to make an offer as well, not to insinuate that you have a MB to restore

Wow, side art for the price of a Williams B title (or 3 or 4 Gottliebs).

I'm pretty sure with Planetary now holding the license to re-run the parts these cab decals are going to be available once again.

Agreed, I wouldn't hold on to them too long. To eBay!
