Quoted from Outsidedge:

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!

Hey, that's me. I'm happy to help to answers any questions from my experience as well!

Quoted from zacaj:

Do you have to sand down the original first, or just place on top? How do the inserts look having to shine through extra material?

You're going to want to sand down the original playfield. This includes removing any mylar that may be on there today. It's also important to sand off any decals over the inserts.

You can see the process I went through in my beta test thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/space-shuttle-new-prototype-playfield-product

Quoted from zacaj:

I got the impression from your post that yours was already sanded due to the overlay?

It was in some places, but I had to sand it even more to get all the insert decals off.

Quoted from crussomd:

How about back to the future and we get someone to do the graphics properly with the actual marty mcfly

No idea, but I would imagine the licensing in doing that would be very difficult.

Quoted from emkay:

It's been danced around a bit in this thread but is there a contractual limitation that precludes Hardtops being made for titles that someone else has recently or is currently reproducing?

I don't believe there is. I think it's more of a supply/demand conversation. From my understanding (which I could be wrong), but I believe Outside Edge is more interested in providing the initial hardtop titles to people who currently have no other option available. SS did have a CPR run, but that's one of his favorite pins so that's why it was done first.

Quoted from Hop-Pac:

I've noticed none of the first few games have star rollovers. Is it too thick to be put on a game with star rollovers? Has it been tested or even considered? Or would it just not work

Star rollovers have been discussed in this thread (or in the couple other HardTop threads before). There has been some testing and development done.

Quoted from Outsidedge:

Black Knight and Evel Knievel are going live this morning for ordering. We will be able to ship within 1 week of an order, then speeding up shipment from there.
Firepower is CLOSE!
Mata Hari is on deck... think July availability (we hope)
Flash Grodon WOULD be nice wouldn't it?
Silver Ball Mania on deck
High Speed on deck
Time Warp on deck
For those thinkers in the crowd... it may be shopping season at the shows to pick up roached palyfields while they can still be had cheap!
Thanks folks for all the kind words. Just keep saving those games. #neverpartoutagame

Can't wait Bruce!
