Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:
I was hoping that guy who is doing the epic blog would post a video of it but so far I haven't seen one up there yet
He didn't start the streaming until after JPop was done...there will not be video from him
Saw this today while on the HSA pinball restoration site (http://www.hsapinball.com/HSA_PINBALL/Home.html).
(25) playfields made for Magic Girl.
Quoted from justonemorepin:
this line from HSA Pinball is fascinating
"The project was picked up by American Pinball in 2015"
I don't think it was a typo. Does anybody know anymore about this? Bill Brandes -- any comments?
This is the entire information on the linked page.
September 2012: John Popadiuk contacted us to clear coat some test panels and a Magic Girl whitewood playfield. HSA was located about 40 miles away from Zidware so this made it easy to move parts around. We did some additional work for him in 2013 and then everything stopped when Zidware started to have financial issues. In 2014, HSA moved from IL to Arkansas.
The project was picked up by American Pinball in 2015 and we got the next batch of playfields in January 2016. We were hesitant to start working on the Magic Girl project again due to the issues with Zidware but American Pinball promised to take care of all Zidware customers to make “everything right”. American Pinball told us that after Magic Girl the next batch of playfields will be a larger 100 piece order and they have several different game titles planned. The next 25 Magic Girl playfields came in July 27, 2016. We were expecting this batch of playfields to be screen printed but they were UV digital printed. Unlike the January batch, these playfields were printed on thicker 15mm wood (great). Also, unlike the January batch of playfields, someone changed the type of wood primer to an oil base sealer and the 25 playfields were no longer compatible to our acrylic urethane automotive clear coat. All playfields (25) were sent back to American Pinball. As of date (Aug 2016) we have not done any additional work for American Pinball, mainly due to the physical distance from them in Chicagoland to us in Arkansas. On a side note, I will say that my dealings with American Pinball was pleasant and I wish this new pinball company well. Hopefully all Zidware customers will start receiving their games soon.
