Hi guys,
Some of you know me personally . Others may have dealt with me through ebay but not realised who I was . Others may never have heard of this before .. lol .

For those who don't know my name's Scott and I am the guy who had made the LOTR Path of the Dead exit ramps / Arwen protector .

These ramps ( a different design ) were originally made by a guy in Canada whom I purchased the rights / designs from . The original Canadian designed ramps turned out to be very flimsy and many of them broke easily .

I set out to make a product that was both functional and sturdy enough to last a lifetime inside a pinball machine . I spent many , many hours tweaking and adjusting / altering the design to end up with the final product which I was selling some time ago . I would class it as mission accomplished as I have not had 1 complaint or heard of anyone's ramp breaking under normal use .

With the rumour that LOTR may be the next Vault Edition from Stern I sense that there may be a large need for these ramps again . The problem is that I had to get these made in a minimum batch of 100 and my financial situation at the moment prohibits me from the outlay of getting more made .

What I am proposing is that possibly somebody here would be interested in buying the designs / rights from me and take over as the new supplier of these ramps . The new owner would receive 100% ownership of the designs as I would sign everything over to them .

PM if interested .

Regards,

Scott.

P.S - Sorry I don't have any ramps left to sell , I'm just selling the designs .

Hi Scott,
it is really a pity that such protector is not available any longer. It looks perfect! And this is the solution for the Shire problem that Stern should have provided as manufacturer.

Hope you find somebody that picks up your knowledge. I wish you luck in this regard.

I hope someone picks this up. So many LOTR owners need this but may not even know such a solution exists.

What about selling it to Starship Fantasy?

They have taken over the plastic ramp manufacturing from Pinball Inc.

Perhaps Pinbits would be interested? They sell lots of protectors and enhancements.
