Customized and installed my clear shuttle ramp... what a transformative part! Thanks for making these, Larry!

I'll be starting the ramps for Party Zone this weekend. The process can take 1 to 6 months depending on how things go and how quickly I can get the ancillary parts done.

#356 14 days ago

Do you still have clear shuttle ramps available?

#357 14 days ago

Yes. Order black from the website and send an email to larry@starship-fantasy to let me know you want clear,

Saw your post in Jody's thread.
A lot of pin heads just don't get the work that goes into these ramps.
Jody, Marc and you provide an amazing service.
Years ago when I meet you at pin a go go I was blown away by your booth. In short, it started my restoration madness and I have you to thank for it first hand.
Thank you for your time and hard work.
And your dog was a sweet little thing to.
I've been looking for the big Hurricane ramp for 4 years. No worries, i do know it may never be done and Im ok with that. Its about cost and demand. Even if you made 25, it would still take a year or 2 to sell them. This is why I haven't posted 10 times asking for it, I know its not a feasible ramp to make.
Thanks again.

Agree, Larry's booth is a thing of beauty! You get a much better idea of how many ramps he offers when you see them all spread out. Thanks Larry (and all the other ramp/parts makers)!

#365 3 days ago

Here's the real problem with Hurricane. Even if I cut the tool up, you can see from the picture that the size of the PETG sheet I would need to use is almost the same as making all three. This basically means I can make all three ramps for almost the same cost as all three. People will overwhelmingly want the large ramp cause the others have been made. So I either sell all three ramps as a set and people are pissed cause they only need the large ramp or I sell the large ramp for $20 less than the set and then people are pissed cause they think I gouging them. I went through this with Police Force and it was not fun. Yes, most people understand when I explain the reason to them but it causes a tremendous waste of my time because I am overwhelmed with complaints.
Better option is to wait for Freeplay40 to get his larger oven.

Made my first purchase of Starship Fantasy ramps this week for my WCS that I'm refurbing. Ordered the complete set with new decals and they arrived today. All I can say is: WOW!! The quality of these are absolutely fantastic, best I've seen from ANY manufacturer I've purchased from since 1998, be it OEM or 3rd party! Real great looking ramps, can't wait to complete the refurb and mount these on....Big thanks to Starship Fantasy!

How much will they cost?

#373 2 days ago

Don't know at this point.

#374 1 day ago

I am so excited for Party Zone. I have been waiting 3 years for new ramps. Still hoping for clear purple or red or something

#375 1 day ago

Anyone know which ramp this? It's not Corvette, T2 or Indy 500.

Just a suggestion but maybe price the 3 ramps separately and don't sell them as a set. Then ignore the complaints, complaints go with the territory.

I think he is saying that the cost of materials is about the same regardless if he did the one big ramp or all 3. I don't think he could just sell the one ramp cheap out of a set and then get stuck with the other ramps that have less demand.

I would sell both the main ramp and the set. Put a note on the one ramp that it's expensive to make by itself and better deal to get all three ramps.

I agree. I think there are going to be certain ramps that are low production and don't sell as much as a high production game, so price them higher. If people need them they have to pay more, if not, no ramp, complaints go to the deleted folder......

I don't price my ramps according to what people are willing to pay but rather on my cost. Addams Family for example would be well over $200 if priced according to what people would pay.

The ramps on PZ are a work of art. Mine are in very good condition. I would still buy a spare set though.

I check ebay often and in 3 years only one crappy set have shown up. I love this game but it does NOT get the love that other games get. Parts are impossible to find.

I would suggest just vacuum form the whole thing and sell it raw. Have the buyers
cut out what they want and finish it them selves.
