Quoted from TOK:

I didn't like the look of that LED at the base of the piston plastic, so I moved it forward (hole is already there). It is pretty much the only LED on the playfield that is exposed like that.
Its definitely an improvement, but does leave a visible hole. Did anyone else do this and cover/plug it? Wondering what you used.

You could glue a small skull to the base of a bulb ,plastic or ceramic (non conductive) an pop it in the bulb socket...image.jpg

Quoted from epthegeek:

I have those. Except I got them in orange, because it makes a lot more sense with the art on the plastics & playfield in that area.

Who made those , Joe? I wonder if amber would look good?

Quoted from Roostking:

That looks sick!!!! Did the sparky animations change much, cause I love how he gets electrocuted...

ColorDMD doesn't change any of the animations. It just adds color.

Anybody know a good place to pick up one of those nice chrome shooters seen on refinery editions? I don't see that for sale at Pinball Refinery. Or I missed it.

Hello, thank you for confirming. Do you have a photo of one installed on a Stern wooden panel so I can see how it's done?

Quoted from Concretehardt:

New cabinet art <perk> different could be good! Anyone have more details on this?

My guess is the decal on the speaker panel that didn't come on the earlier run.

#4358 4 years ago

That's his one off

Quoted from Taygeta:

Just traded my pro in for a NIB premium. Someone started a rumor that the new run of premiums would have metallic, foiled artwork like IMVE, that is false. Cab is identical to the pro.
First time seeing the premium translite in person. Million times better than the pro and I even like it more than the LE. image.jpg

What's the build date?

Quoted from Aurich:

If you're in Socal and you want to stop by and see the beta of my Metallica mod it's installed and working on my game. Just give me a holler. Once Alien isn't keeping my free time so packed I'll work on finishing it.

I'll be picking up a pin early tomorrow morning in SoCal . It's going to be an early drive down (leaving 2 am) if everything is cool with it load up & head back. I wish I had time to stop by & see what you're working on.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Why does your game with a premium/LE PF have a pro translite?

Probably a Roadcase edition & he was only able to source a pro translite.

#6715 3 years ago
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

The original Metallica Road Case cabinets had a black speaker panel, and square speaker cutouts.
Some of the last ones had round speaker cutouts.
I have seen NONE with the upgraded speaker panel decal that was used for additional runs of the Monster Premium.
This makes even less sense because it does match the cabinet artwork AT ALL, and this is the upgraded metal backbox because you can clearly see the angle on the speaker panel that was changed to reduce glare.
Something does not seem right here, I hope I am mistaken in this case.
My NIB "spider sense" is tingling again...

The latest run w/ the new backbox have the round speaker, tilted DMD & speaker panel decal. (not my game in the pic)

Quoted from Gryszzz:

Next dumb question : only when I added MET did I notice a difference in height. I feel like Im missing something glaringly obvious here, but how are my front legs raised up on MET, yet it's still lower than my other 28.5" legs ? JP not included, of course, 28.5 legs on that beast too.

You got the LE "lowrider edition"

Quoted from gweempose:

Good to know. Does anyone have a complete list of all the rubbers in the game? I thought I read that the manual is wrong.

This is off the Titan site
(I use 2.5 on the slings)



#7944 3 years ago

Get it while it's hot
Snooze you lose


#7952 3 years ago
Quoted from Roostking:

is that a good price?

It's lower than what I've seen previously ($250)

#7953 3 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Why wld anyone need a extra sparky?

The chance you break his foot off (not common) or if you wanted to customize it & put it in your game .

#7963 3 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

btw, whoever created that got two of the rubber rings incorrect. the ones that I've highlighted in green (see below) should actually be 5/16" ID rings, not 7/16" OD
the 7/17" OD will fit, however it's an extremely tight fit over the lower, larger section of the lane guide

Quoted from dnapac: I thought someone here was working on a 3d printed frame to take care of this...but haven’t seen any finished product. Another goo option is to get some of that black foam weather stripping to fill in the gap.

vireland did a great job on these, he started a thread for them :
