    Did these start getting manufactured again? I know Pinball Life was selling them from a limited stock and for a long time I didn't see them anywhere.

    Maybe they're NOS?

    I suppose it's feasible to find a stockpile of them in a warehouse somewhere.

    Yeah not sure, I reached out to ask what the story was. I was thinking he was confusing them with 555 but if you look at the pic everything adds up

    #4 1 year ago

    Honestly, I'm not concerned where they came from - even if they are pulls. If PinballLife has 'em for $2.50 for a *single bulb*, 100 @ 29 cents is nothing. I just got 200 of 'em.

    If they show up, and they ARE #555s, then I'll just file a complaint through eBay.

    I am about to order a box of 100 myself

    #6 1 year ago

    Better buy them before pinball life does

    #7 1 year ago

    just ordered 100

    #8 1 year ago

    *ahem* If anyone doesn't want 100 of them, I'll semm them what they want for only $.50 a bulb! That's like, a LOT cheaper than PinballLife!

    FYI he is selling in quantities of 20 for 8 bucks

    Oh, nevermind then!

    #11 1 year ago

    Based on how quickly that counter must have climbed, and incremented after I just bought one, I would guess he probably only has a dozen boxes left...

    The seller just messaged me and wanted to know if I told everybody about them because they are having a rush on orders. He apparently has a few cases of them.

    Hehe. Probably wondering, 'What the hell?!'.

    #14 1 year ago

    I don't think he has any idea what he has in his hands, hahah imagine if there weren't any alternatives like switching over to the bayonet flashers or LEDs.

    #15 1 year ago

    1 box of 100 left

    #16 1 year ago

    Better order before he raises the price! Picked up 20 myself

    #17 1 year ago

    Not going to have time to raise the price

    Smart eBay sellers never give it all up at once. But we'll see.

    listing has ended

    #20 1 year ago
    Quoted from zerbam:

    listing has ended

    Still has the 20s

    #21 1 year ago

    lol, you guys cleaned him out

    [edit]: Nope, looks like he just raised the price 10 bucks:

    That's still cheaper than $2.50 a bulb from PB life

    He, said he has a few cases that be bought from a close out of a lighting store. He has been sitting on these for 3 years and has hade very little sales. I have to imagine one of us would have searched GE 545 at some point in the last 3 years. I literally just stumbled on them this morning by accident and caused a run on them. I should get a commission!!!!!

    Actually 20 bucks! The one I bought this am was $29.99 for bx/100. Now it's $49.99.... but already sold 3!

    lets see if he cancels the orders of the ones at the cheaper price and relists those also.

    Quoted from Dr-Willy:

    No he wont he dropped the price back to $35 but said they will go up to $50, I told him to watch because people will not be buyers if you keep raising the price. He had zero clue what they are and is not a pinball guy. When I first saw them this morning I emailed him because I couldn't believe that he was selling them for $7.95 for a 20 pack. Once he saw the orders pouring in it clued him in and I told him the back story behind them.

    What makes these bulbs so special?

    #28 1 year ago
    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    What makes these bulbs so special?

    They are flashers. Used in a few games. TAF, NGG. And weren't available for many years. High price, if you could find them.

    Not any more Lloyd . This guy just flooded the market

    #30 1 year ago
    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    GE stopped manufacturing the bulb years ago, not %100 sure what other applications it had besides pinball. Until today supply was extremely limited but apparently this guy on ebay has a few cases

    I saw it go up to $39.99. Looks like it went back down to $34.99 after you saw it.

    Because I told him not to get too greedy so he dropped the price back to $35

    #38 1 year ago

    NOS? Maybe difficult to find. But 455 bulbs are still common and cheap - about $1/ea once you include shipping, although of course there are many ads out there selling them for 10x that price.

    I never liked the blink rate of the newer 455 bulbs. They don't stay lit very long, and the stay dark for a long period of time.

    The GE 455 bulbs had a much better blink rate.

    #46 1 year ago

    Well, they're out there! A few of 'em anyway, at $35~$40/10 though..

    I wonder which brand is in my Solar Fire..

    I thought TAF had some of these in the backbox as well? I could be wrong.

    Not these they twinkle, I think I remember reading something about some
    Games have actual flashers in the back

    #49 1 year ago

    Well I got mine and went to check them out in my WW and found it it has 455s

    I'd have to check. TAF, TZ, and NGG come to mind.
