Awesome Guys! Thank you!

I am hoping the second batch will arrive sooner! Good news from Joe!

Working on Ghost Train Proto next, and something more in pink slime for premiums and pros!

#57 3 years ago

I'm in

#58 3 years ago

Thank you! Evening crowd bump!

#59 3 years ago

Just sent my money for shipment to Canada. This is a must have on the LE.

#60 3 years ago

Also, do you have the protection to stop the balls from jumping over the bar into the outlane? If you do I would love to add that to my order. I don't have interest in the center post and pinball life is out anyway.

#61 3 years ago

Im working on a version, again using influence from all others.
My vision is mostly clear or all clear, as well as a decal version that blends with the blue and purple art from the playfield
for Pro and Premium.

Should the proto and eta be available to be shown, I hope, before this next batch ships, Ill post, and one can decide if they wish for me to hold their order or not.

Shooting for $25-$30, clear/decal with shipping.

Can you make sure it works with the Pinball Life center post mod? That's assuming their mod really only addresses the center post and doesn't completely solve the jumping issue. Correct me if I'm wrong.

PBL product works very well, there is no reason for both to be installed.

How do you secure the Ecto-1 to your mod??

Quoted from MNPinner:

How do you secure the Ecto-1 to your mod??

In the case of this plastic, and car, I am using a wider piece of double sided sticky foam.

In the past, I have used Hot glue...easy, and I have also drilled a whole in the bottom of the car, coordinated height, and machine screwed with spacer and washer, and it self taps the soft metal of the car.

However, the only way for this to work in the position shown, requires, you soft test pushing the car as far back as possible, without the spinner hitting it. and hand moving slimer over to check.

I am guessing this next part, because subtle variations exist in the mounting of the slimer mech.

If your slimer is not hitting anything, as it has been delivered, there is a good chance it will not hit the front corner of the car, giving a phantom "hit" register sometimes. If your slimer is hitting the captive ball and sometimes the far left captive ball, one can raise the boom with the single set screw, and/or put washers in the back of the mech where 2 screws anchor it to the playfield.

The results of this are not consistent, nor is the need, or solution.

For that reason, I have some loose cars, and they are shipped loose that one can try, or mount over the PKE loop.

Currently, the lowest I have found is $8.00 Shipped from Ebay, so I matched that.
Supplies are very limited, I am not sure what "day" I will run out.

Thats the "Scoop!"

I sent money to your pay pal account for the clear protector. Thanks and nice work

#69 3 years ago

Much appreciate it!!! Its my whole Job now!

#70 3 years ago

PayPal sent for clear protector. Thanks Art!

#71 3 years ago

I just ordered one with decal.
Thanks Art

#72 3 years ago

Art...not sure if you said previously or not(apologize if you've said already)but will the air ball plastic fit gb pro models as well?

#73 3 years ago

I believe it will, but hope to test in a few days.

Production is moving faster than expected.

I believe it will be ok, to order the
Decal loose.

I answered someone incorrectly.

I'll follow up shortly, and if so I can add
To your order.

Thank you all very much!

#74 3 years ago

Just ordered plain plastic. Thanks Art.

#75 3 years ago

Curly from LSOG called me to say it fits fine on the Pro! Thank You!

#76 3 years ago

Customer number one reporting. Installed today and works great so far. No airballs so far on the LE. Nice job Art!

#77 3 years ago

Thanks Art. Just ordered one with decal.

#78 3 years ago

Thanks!!!!

I believe I should receive next week....1-2 weeks early, and have everyone shipping out much faster!

On to the next couple of pieces......

#79 3 years ago

Didn't someone retire recently? This doesn't look like retirement

#80 3 years ago

Right, John. (sarcasm)

Thankfully, as you know its something needed now, and not so much later. So its a short business.

Pretty busy enough not to do, and it isnt the money, although if one saw my tax bill.....

Mostly, its a thought of a small amount of products that might keep me son busy, as its proving harder for him
to find a job....

But Yes, I love to help....no, I dont like to work.....Retirement is wonderful, and I highly recommend to everyone to make it an early goal!

If for no other reason than more Pinball!!!

Youll get there too, John.....hopefully Soon!!!

#81 3 years ago

Thanks for making these ordered one a couple days ago

1 week later
#82 3 years ago

These look awesome and are functional - great job!

#83 3 years ago

Thanks!

I'll be posting an update later tonight with pics,
New info and more.

It's been 2 weeks, and we expect all orders to ship out tomorrow and Tuesday.

#84 3 years ago

All ready shipping!

Heres a pic with the decal on.

I have received all plastics for all orders, but the decals shipped separate.

I have no problem to install and ship complete, but can also send them loose, which
gives you both options.

I also checked and the decal looks very cool going up the metal ramp, or on the PKE right loop ramp...
Nice in both places.

So, as Im prepping, if you have ordered with a decal, and now wish it loose, you can PM me.
If you ordered without a decal, and wish to add on, please reach out too.
Likely, I might try to email all those, in case they dont see this post.

Very nice looking solution, and now with choices!

Look to Receive yours this week!

#86 3 years ago

About 15 pieces left, loose decals are also available.

If you wish one shipped out fast.....Send an order on in!

Ill hope to have strength for the outlane finishing and photos tomorrow as well.

Great News for Fellow Pinheads in Canada and Europe!

I figured out a lower weight and cost to ship Protectors to Europe in Canada!

For Canada, a Plain Protector is now $5.00 LESS! $24.95 SHIPPED! With Decal Loose or applied, $29.95.
For Europe So far, its $6.00 Less $26.95 Plain and $31.95 With Decal Loose or applied.

Im reaching out to those who have placed orders for either a refund or upgrade. Should I miss you, please shoot me a PM.

Here are the details again:

USA

It is available for $19.95 Including Shipping
and $24.95 With the Ghost Trap Decal Including Shipping

I have a few Ecto1 and Ecto1-A cars, hot wheels for $8.00
If you wish to add. They need Doubled sided tape, or Velcro to
add to your game, but you may need to adjust your Slimer
if you place on this plastic.

So, I dont have a business site up, and a direct Paypal to sales@rubinarthur.com will work.

#88 3 years ago

All orders Shipped!

If its Easier for many, Both Types are now available with a Buy it Now on Ebay.

They are available there for US, CANADA, and WORLDWIDE shipping.

art, just sent $$ via paypal. thank you sir!!

#91 3 years ago

Thanks for doing these.

In regards to the PayPal method, do you prefer we select "Pay for goods or services" with you paying a fee, or the "Send money to friends and family" with no fee? I'd hate to choose the wrong option and have you deal with any type of issue down the line.

Thanks,

Thank you, Either way is fine.

The difference for Friends is It doesnt cost me an extra dollar.
It does mean you need to put your address in the notes section.

There is enough stock till Expo, so I do highly recommend ordering up over the weekend.

Im trying to finish the Sling and Inlane Jump Ball Protector to share in the next day or two.
(sorry for the delay...just poor health)

If you are waiting for those, I am hoping to be around $25-$29 for the pair shipped.
(as well as a bundle price)

These will be ready in 3-4 weeks, along with A Test Run of Ghost Trains....I hope.
Im testing a chasing light strip on this for fun.

Thanks for all the support!

Also have one of these on order. Is there a difference in version from pro to premium/LE? Also is there any talk of trying to make a new Protector to protect the Ecto goggles screen?

No difference.

The Ecto Goggles broke from an air ball where no protector was present.
I cant see a demand yet, due to one instance, and especially with something already preventing airballs....seems redundant.

Thanks, Yes makes sense. I hope it comes close to the same time the premium comes. I was hoping to get my Premium before expo but I'm not so sure that will happen now. Thanks again for the hard work on making the protectors. It is much appreciated!

#98 3 years ago

My Premium is shipping next week! Time to order the protector and car!

#99 3 years ago

Thanks for making these. Just shot a Pay pal off

#100 3 years ago

Thank you...!

Orders will all ship Monday.

About 8 left for this week.....
