As per the new article on Pinball Resource:
"4/27/17 Gottlieb® Repro Plastic Set
Per the news item on the SCOREBOARD plastic sets, we just received newly produced plastics for JOKER, CORONATION and SHINDIG. The artwork was re-rendered using my samples and a variety of photos by Ryan Claytor. The engineering drawings were located for all the dimensional data from the Gottlieb Archives. And the plastics printed and laser cut. The results are outstanding. I have installed on my games...what a difference from the "bacon" that I had. They will make an equally stunning improvement on your games, too!
I have more sets planned based on the acceptance of this batch.
Here are the details:
JOKER part number PL044 price $75.00/set net (4 piece set)
CORONATION part number PL070 price $110.00/set net (6 piece set)
SHINDIG part number PL078 price $75.00/set net (2 piece set)
These are shipped with a protective layer to be peeled from top and bottom before install. Enjoy!
...and for those who enjoy the visuals:
The above photographs are from the ACTUAL PRINTED PLASITCS (not digital files or representations). I'm very happy with the outcome and even Steve got excited about them. (Yes, Steve Young.)
Each set of plastics were redrawn by hand using multiple sources to get the most accurate reproduction...
...and they look great even when backlit:
I can't overstate how proud I am to have a hand in making these plastics available for the first time since their initial run well over 60 years ago. Steve and I are both ready to do more, but he's gotta move a few of these sets before that happens. If you know of any of the aforementioned machines in need of some repro plastics, give Steve a jingle.
