Quoted from tlukka:

nagamitsu The board I was talking about is for the led right behind the orb. Could be a mod.

If I was home, I'd take some close up pics for you. Can do tonight also. There is a color changing LED seen at back of orb through the split, there's no protection on that at all. Spotlight to the upper right of that, literally just has one of the long screws that goes through the top clear plastic, go between the two wires of the spotlight, I can't find a good image of the spotlight or backside of orb online at all.

Is it possible to buy just the orb plastic? Or do I need to purchase the entire set?

#6103 62 days ago
Quoted from ExSquid:

I messed my side blades up pretty good lifting my playfield. What a noobie move.....smh

I did that with my JP blades and ended up buying the plastic blade protectors from Pinball Life. They were like $30 which seemed like a lot for plastic sheets, but they make all the difference in the world with pulling the play field in and out with no concern of scratching the blades.

This. Buy a set. They're nice and durable, good product.

I have been a Guardians of the Galaxy (Pro) owner for a few years.

Occasionally the 1st time Quill is played. It is only kicking out one ball and the mode ends as soon as the ball save is done.

Has anyone else had this issue and is their a fix?

I have searched the forum and didn't see a solution.

#6106 61 days ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

Man this game is frustrating me. Its a lot like when I got my TMNT. That game really got to me, made me angry. Maybe Im not a borg guy! I dunno....Need to give it some time off and get back to it. Iron Maiden coming this week so itll give me some time off!

Give it time. I felt the same way with this game at first as well as TMNT. This has been the game in our collection the longest. The outlanes aren't nearly as brutal as TMNT in my opinion at least over time.

I have had this but its only if I have Hadrons lit and if I start hitting them as soon as mode starts. Otherwise hasn't happened for me after 2+ years

#6108 61 days ago
Quoted from tlukka:

Thanks, nagamitsu. I should have taken a photo myself to show what I have going on. I'll do that tonight. I just don't see anything to mount that spotlight on. There was also a ball trapped in that area when I bought it, so there must be something missing.

Took a couple pics and hope this helps

Gauging interest in making wireforms to replace the plastic ramps on this game. I asked on one of my build topics and this game was suggested. I can do standard rails or something creative. I am looking at one of these tomorrow. Please chime in. If theres enough interest I will make them.
Thanks for any input.

Local buys just rule! Never played this game or saw the movies. I streamed the movies last night and I liked them both. I played the game this morning and wow. Just fun. I Took off ramps and I am making a base shape set. Then a production board to follow. I still have 48 wireform sets to make for mandalorian customers and I am doing them in groups of 5. Just to break things up so I dont go mad I do other machine orders on the side just so I dont go crazy. Usually just one day. So far Nothing artistic jumped out at me yet. So, just making replacements for the plastic ramps. Thanks for the interest! Stay tuned I will post pictures here as it goes. When I get them to a production level I will make it its own topic. Appreciate the nudge to look at this game. We started a business to make wireforms. If theres any other games that strike any interest feel free to post ideas.

Can’t wait to see what it looks like. Cleaner look I’m sure!

I finally got around to putting in a few figures: I tried the Milano above Groot, front and center. Will add some lights to it, but also might move it to above the skill shot. Added Nebula, Gamora and Star Lord. I have Drax and Yondu, but I feel light it’s just going to be crowded if I add more. I need some pin stadium’s next I think. Love this game!

#6127 59 days ago

I dont want to plug up this owners topic. I will make a build topic on forum just for theses rails. Feel free to jump over and see them through.

I do not know how to paste the new topic here. But Loganpinball forum search should find it. Or, if someone can post it here that would be great.

#6128 59 days ago

What should I do with my broken topper.
A) Leave as is (yuck!)
B) Attempt a glue repair
C) Remove the clear silhouette part and mod something in its place
D) Remove and sell it as is.

Ideas or suggestions?

I want a set to what will they be made of stainless or what just wandering

#6131 59 days ago

Is there a way to change the direction the magna force magnet releases the ball? I feel like there are too many released straight down the middle.

I'd play around with your side to side level.

That's a good idea. According to my "Pinball Leveller" app, I was perfect side to side. I'll look at it again, maybe closer to the magnet.

Tig welded 303 1/8 stainless steel rods. I completed the first set last night.

Dude, those look nice. Definitely keep us posted on your progress! Just got mine out of the box and set up but would certainly consider those in the future.

#6138 58 days ago

Jump over to the topic I started if theres any questions. And please PM me if your interested. Its hard to keep track, but pms make it easier. And heres what the final forms look like. I just need to add mounts for flashers. I will post a play video on my forum topic.
Thanks!

#6140 58 days ago

Interested in a set as well. How close are they on clearance to the plastic ramps? I added a set of Groot hands and they would need to be about the same clearance.

Only ship to the USA?

#6145 58 days ago

Has anyone had this problem? Suddenly the shooter lane auto launch is weaker. Doesn't make it to the top of the PF. Settings are at high(255), I put a new coil sleeve in, everything moves smoothly and alignment is correct.
thx

Can arrange to ship elsewhere also, just haven't integrated it into the shopping cart. I'll send you a message as I'm mailing other things to Austrailia too.

Squeeze the auto launcher forks together a little. Over time the forks spread out and they are strikiing the ball on the outside. The forks need to hit more towards the center. The shooter rod tip needs to go freely between the forks, so dont over squeeze them.

Sorry, no idea, mines working fine. But if you want to come by and look at anything on mine to compare, let me know.

One more thing to check is the coil stop. For years Stern has sadly had a stock pile of inferior cr*p. A worn/broken coils stop would make the solenoid weak.
