Hi all,

We recently got in a Transformers Pro from a customer and I'm noticing a descrepency between the manual and whats on the playfield in regards to the top one way gates. I don't believe ours has been modified, but I feel I need to see another Transformers PRO to confirm someone hasn't replaced a One Way Gate with a none OEM part.

If you have a Transformers Pro, would you mind taking a picture for me of the top of your playfield where the top lanes are. I'm trying to determine if the one way gate on my machine is factory or someone's alternative part replacement. Manual says the gate on the left side is an electric one way gate. However there is no wiring harness under the playfield for the gate to plug into. Our machine has a standard one way gate (non electric).

I can check late tonight, unless someone beats me to it.

That is correct. On the pro their is only one controllable gate. The Le was the only version to get two controllable gates. I have an LE but pinball news did a review on the pro and has a picture about a 3rd of the way down.

P.S. - I know someone local that would probably want that machine if it was priced right. I.E not brick and mortar pricing If that is doable let me know and I'll get you his info and will let him know about the game. He doesn't visit pinside much (if at all).

I just want to follow up with this post for the archives, should someone run into this problem like I did since the manual is incorrect.
Here are the replacement part numbers:

Gate BRKT 535-0038-00

Wire gate 535-5307-02
