    I set one up, have ordered 3x from them. plastics suck ass, but everything else is decent.

    #102 3 years ago
    Quoted from Zitt:

    Wanted everyone to know I just paid a Pinball.Center invoice for the following parts:
    Frosted "Clear" Polycarbonate Drop targets in three styles (as a market test):
    Modern Stern
    Legacy Williams
    Data East
    Additionally I ordered a small quantity of Pop Bumper Mylar in all colors. I reordered some more Chrome and Gold Popbumper bodies and some TRON: Legacy (LE) Clear Discs. I ordered some misc parts for customers requested via PM but had one customer backout on the Clear Plastic set for Road Show ... I'll probably put those plastics here on the market place unless someone has specific interest.
    Click any of the links above to be taken to the order page to add a stock alert to be notified when they go back in stock.
    Prices are subject to change.

    wow, do a guy a favor and he craps out on you.

    Nah. No hard feelings.
    He didn't hear from me because I was waiting for the drop targets to go in stock.
    I'm sure I'll eventually sell them.

    Has anyone tried their glow in the dark star posts (http://www.pinball.center/en/shop/pinball-parts/playfield-parts/star-posts/1651/star-post-white-fluorescent-glow-in-the-dark)? We were going to start carrying UV post lights at Comet Pinball and were thinking that maybe the two would work well together. But maybe not. Didn't initially realize they'd be so difficult to order.

    Sell them as a package deal and carry them in fluorescent green, blue, and red and I would buy a few sets.

    Ryan,
    I'll see what I can do to get them in a future order. (not a regular occurrence yet).

    #107 3 years ago

    Ryan and I are doing another Pinball.Center order at the End of this month.
    If you have any specific needs; please PM me or post here.

    I'm just about out of stock on Clear and Red pop bumper bodies as well as the "frosted" drop targets.
    Pinball.Center is also just about out of stock on these two colors. As a result; I'll be doing another order in another 2-3wks.

    If you have something you want that they have (http://pinball.center) now it the time to send me a PM or post here.

    I'd expect/hope to have the parts here by TPF'19 (Mar 22nd).

    Well shoot. After searching all over for the one Haunted House plastic I needed - seems Pinball Center is the only place that has it. However, I can't see going through all these hoops, and paying shipping from overseas for just one plastic. ....bummer.

    Try Zitt ... he's been periodically placing orders for people here in the US. I'm waiting for the planets to align (so far about a year) to get some AC/DC rails in a group buy.

    This is a great thread find. I found Pinball Center, but they can’t ship to the US. I’ll reach out to Zitt to add something to his next order!

    #116 3 years ago

    Next order is planned for late April'19 with delivery mid may.
    *subject to order availability.

    New Order planned for first of Aug with availability mid month.
    Deadline for any orders is 9/2.
    Pinball.Center carries many hard to find parts including plastics for games, translites, etc.
    If you need something; they might have it.

    Quoted from perryd:

    Tried to warn you guys! However, just two weeks ago, they refunded my full amount from 4 months earlier!! So hang in there, I believe they are a stand-up company which did the correct thing regardless of USPS dragging their feet.
    p

    "tried to warn you guys"...blah blah blah
    yeah, we got your warning in the first 5 posts about the issue. has anyone ever told you that you were kind of a cockadoodledoo?
    and, what happened in the end? - you received a refund!
    thanks for sharing your experience - once. all the times thereafter aren't helpful. the other thing not helpful is your eagerness to poop all over this excellent workaround.
    what would be helpful is another option to use when ordering from this source, or another shipping solution.

    They don’t ship to the USA you have to use a mail forwarder - it’s not hard to do. Use mailboxde.com

    If it's Pinball Center try Zitt. His ordering thread is below. He has a deal with them for shipping items. It’s sometimes every month sometimes ever other. Post there or PM him about what you’re looking to get.
