Eight Ball Deluxe

I'm looking at buying a project with a rough playfield, no boards, missing display, no backglass, rough cabinet. I've been very active on Pinside and Facebook Marketplace for the past year and I think I have seen one CPR playfield in the aftermarket in all that time. Lots of overlays but only one nos/repro playfield. Seems like this would be a great seller.

Quoted from Tommy-dog:

I thought classic Stern do not require a license, unless it has a 3rd party license tied to it. Gary Stern does not own the license to the 1970-1980s Sterns games. I believe his ex-wife did but she did not care if anyone makes parts.

Please read post #63:
"Planetary is not forcing anyone. They do not have licensing agreements with anyone else at this time. That does not mean in the future this could change. There are still a lot of B/W titles to be done so bringing on another company's titles is just too much."

Quoted from Skypilot:

Sorry no Sterns as of yet

When you do start considering Sterns you should look at Meteor. One of the largest produced classic Sterns At 8,300 but no one has ever made a repro playfield. It has been on cprs boutique wishlist for at least a year. Flight 2000 was another high production Stern but Cpr made a playfield for that a few years ago

Quoted from TicTacSeth:

For suggestions, what about making backglasses for these games? Since you already have the license, and my Pharaoh is losing a full corner, hanging on by a thread. Think you could use your process and materials to make backglasses for these games?

CPR announced that they would reproduce all of the plastics, backglasses/translites and playfields that they did in the past, but now on demand. For now only the plastics and backglasses/translites are on demand. If you post in the below forum what you are looking for it will help them prioritize what needs to be made now. Check their website periodically to see if it's in stock, and if you don't see it in stock within two weeks pm Pinsider kevincpr.

Quoted from dyopp21:

Awww man! I was hoping Supersonic would squeak into the new 5 titles with its simple graphics. Or High Speed... Oh well, I still have a feeling both will make it to the presses someday, and I'm nothing if not patient.
So glad y'all are making this product and I can't wait to order and install my first!

Two posts above he stated that High a Speed is almost ready to release

Quoted from BertoDRINK1:

Just saw Blackout on the list that's awesome. I got to really look mine over and decide if i go hardtop or traditional restoration mine isn't terrible but not sure if its good enough to be touched up and cleared and come out nice enough cause the Hardtops looks amazing.
I'm actually not to far from Pinball Pimp, about 5 hours. I actually reached out to him also about taking him my Trident so he could scan it and make the stencil. I think my Blackout is pretty decent also i might be able to just take both to him if someone can't get him good scans.

Do you have an old flatbed scanner? You can remove the lid and hold the scanner against the cabinet and take multiple pictures. Jeff can photoshop the pictures to make the stencils.
