Thanks! That’s should work.

Joined the club a couple weeks ago. A friend and I almost have it all shopped and back together. Played a few games on it today and it's mostly working! Couple switch adjustments and a bad coil on the drop target bank, nothing too serious.

Looking for a good condition back-glass. Mine is flaking at the top. Workable for now but would like to get a non-flaking one.

Any tips for replacing the "speaker cloth" at the bottom of the backbox? Mine looks kind-of ratty and has a couple holes. Any leads on the material to use?

So I see there isn't much out there for Laser Cue in the way of good PF's for sale or overlays. I looked at paint touch-ups for some but the artwork is pretty detailed where most need work done.

Has anyone proposed a total redraw of the playfield and backglass and get that printed? Change the art a bit and colors to make the game look a bit brighter? I was thinking World Cup '94 colors with an Alien Cue space theme? Just an idea.

Check with Mayfair on the backglass. I grabbed one from them at pinfest awhile back. BGresto does a repro but I don’t think it’s mirrored.

Thanks! I never thought about asking Mayfair. They don't have it pictured on their site but I shot them an email to doublecheck.

I might send my original to BGResto so they can strip it and re-paint it to retain the mirroring.

Yeah, the dark playfield is a bit of an issue for me as well. This game people have the hardest time playing because of the backglass illumination glare on the playfield. Most people don't even see or use the top flipper. Only thing that has me considering some of that anti-reflective glass...but man my wallet is telling me otherwise >.>

I put LEDs in and had to turn around and remove them because of the glare! Incandescent are a little better, but not much! I have looked into the anti glare glass too and agree my wallet says no way!

Gonna wing this out here and see if anyone knows how many posts on Laser Cue? Or does anyone have a playfield chart or link to the parts book for late system 7s? Thanks

I have my original manual for my Laser Cue, If that might have anything? I can look tonight.

Just wondering what color rubbers/silicone people have put on their Laser Cues and any specific LED's one might recommend?
I was contemplating Lt Blue for the silicon rings.

Green on the flippers, translucent everywhere else. Comet 2 smd warm white frosted bulbs everywhere in the game.

Got the game back, tracking down a switch row locked on. But it's ok just to look at for a while

Finding an NOS playfield and having it cleared practically guarantees a repro is coming soon

So....I ruined my machine by messing with the artwork. If it doesn't sell locally, unfortunately, I'm planning to part it out. Does anyone need any parts (for money)? I'd like to help other pinsiders who need something, but also need to try to recoop some of my investment.

Does the game work?

#173 19 days ago

Yes it works 85%. it has two displays out (probably not working), it will occasionally glitch and need to be restarted, and there are a couple of bonus lights that light at the wrong times.

#174 19 days ago

Then I would try to find someone to buy it. Hate to see games get parted that work. Maybe a location near you would be interested? Locations tend to take in the ugly ducklings. Haha

#175 19 days ago

problem is no one wants to pay. They are willing to buy it for a couple hundred, but not close to what I could get for parts.

#176 19 days ago

If can, hold onto it. if a repro pf or hardtop comes out that game will increase in potential value. my 2 cents.

#177 18 days ago

You might want to let people know in some of the p-roc or custom game threads. This could be one of the coolest pf layouts to ever see a retheme.

You're probably right that you'll take a hit on the price, but it's still got to have more value complete than parting it out, especially if you target the right groups. There's always someone just getting into the hobby that wants ANYTHING at a reasonable price. I bet if you price accordingly it'll be gone quick.

So how bad is the art...? Pics!

#178 18 days ago

Yeah. Great layout that could definitely benefit from different rules and theme.
