Quoted from ecto1a2003:
Hello everyone! i'm new here to pinside and to this club. i'm going to pickup my used HUO ghostbusters LE in about 2 weeks. i'm super excited as this is the first modern pinball ive ever owned plus im a huge ghostbusters fan! before this i only have a ugly but fully functional Mr and Mrs pacman and a old Chicago coin gold record. Anyway back on topic, are there any absolute must have mods or accessories for this machine? I've been looking at a lot of the stuff on the market as well as online and the all look amazing. should i get the playfield protector? i'd like to keep this machine and id like it to stay as nice as possible as long as possible. also what does everyone think of the topper? i kinda like it kinda don't. Thanks for your time everyone!
Art's airball protector is a must have. He makes one in a clear and one with a decal on it (I prefer the clear myself). It seems he's archived the ad so not sure what's going on with that but I'd reach out to him to see if he still has some: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/archive/38847
A lot of people recommend the outlane plastic too. I haven't picked one up yet so I'm not sure who the go to person on Pinside is for that. Maybe someone else can chime in there?
As for the topper...since you're a big GB fan (same here by the way) I'd recommend getting it. It's pricey and probably not really worth it unless you're either a big GB fan or someone who has to have a topper on all of their machines.
I'd also recommend looking into the Stern art blades. They add a lot to the look, in my opinion.
Congrats on your new game. You're going to love it! I purchased my GBLE the day the game was officially announced and received it the first week Stern was shipping games here in the US and I absolutely love it. It sits in my GB themed arcade room right next to my Real Ghostbusters arcade!
