Hello Pinsiders! A small number of you have been following our beta test of a product that we have developed to restore playfields. With many more titles in mind, we started with Space Shuttle.
The Hardtop product was specifically developed with the challenges of playfield wear, value of machine, replacement availability... and durability in mind. It is meant to be the closest thing to the "silver bullet" solution to that fun, yet worn out game your not sure what to do with.
Our Hardtop is much more scratch resistant than the traditional clear coating methods currently being done today.
The Hardtop is NOT a "sticker"... or overlay in the sense most have seen.
This product essentially goes directly over top your old, worn playfield and you simply repopulate the parts back onto the field. (again, see the linked thread above)
This product (in most cases) will roughly cost 1/2 of a new repro playfield.
We partnered with a Pinside member to officially beta the product, and he did an outstanding job with his videos!
If you have questions about what this product is... click the link!
In total, there are officially 3 Space Shuttle Hardtops installed to date. Mine has been in use since last summer. (yea, I know.. it takes forever to bring a product to market!)
Well, we are finally ready to begin production of Space Shuttle, and have selected 5 more titles to start developing. In total, we have 31 titles on our "to do" list. We are currently licensed for Bally and Williams, and working on Gottlieb. More will most certainly be added to the list. We hope to debut 4-6 titles per year. More if we can muster it!
Most titles you see us do are titles unlikely to see an official repro playfield anytime soon... or never. A few titles may be some that have had actual repros made... but not all either want to or CAN spend what it takes for a new playfield.
We will cover pricing in the near future, but keep in mind that each title will have it's own price. Too many variables exist to "standardize" pricing at this time.
Please take our pole if you plan to purchase... this REALLY helps us plan! As usual, we request that you reply only if you are certain you would be a customer for a specific title. (see poll)
I know lots of questions... skepticism, and requests for titles may flow....
I will try to keep up, but please note that i only pop into the site a few times a week.
Lastly, I will post a longer term list of titles quite soon, along with the need for loaner STRIPPED playfields, where in return for your help you will get a FREE HARDTOP. More details to come!
Have I mentioned that there is a poll?
