Quoted from lrosent345:

You wanted a teaser, here it is. One off set has been fitted. It is tight because the ramps are much thicker. They were made on a female mold so the tabs are way thicker. So thick, you may need longer screws at some attachment points. Need to now run 150 sets so everyone will be able to get one. Also waiting on the decals and flap for the upper left ramp. 2-4 weeks.

Look awesome!

#602 64 days ago

Excellent looking! Is there a price point we can expect? Are all of them going to be in a single run?

#603 64 days ago

Very nice Larry

That's awesome, I sold my pin but I would have bought those because I had broken ramps. Good luck!

Hey guys... so I was playing a few games when I got home today and I shot cosmic robot. I got surprise (multiball) I plunged... shot the rocket then I some how got both balls shot into the cosmic shot again and the balls were like jammed up... not allowing it to kick it into the wireform. Is there a fix for this or the old extension magnet the only way out? I have owned the game a few weeks and it has happened 3 times in the last few days.
Any insight would be great!

Quoted from Budwin:

Had that happen too, just the extra switch attached to the right flipper had a bad connection.

Hi all. Still having issues with not being able to choose songs / move BOP around and selecting name for high score. Can't find any loose wires near flippers and nothing else stands out.

Does anyone know if a service manual exists at all?

thanks

#607 57 days ago

Yep, I have one. Planetary Pinball and Marcospec should have reprints for sale.

A couple questions for the Party Zone crowd:

- the red GI string that lights up for the Big Bang... how many bulbs are on that string and what type are they? Would they originally have come with those little rubber bulb covers? And do we just get them in red as LED's now?

- my machine is missing the little plastic sign for the Cosmic Cottage. I don't have the little metal bracket either. The plastic piece comes in the full plastics kit (currently unavailable at the places I know to check) and the individual piece I did find here at Ministry of Pinball (also out of stock). Anyone have the plastic piece for sale or know where I can get one? I also can't find the little metal bracket on the parts pages. Anyone know of a suitable replacement?

The shopout image I attached shows it clearly because the Cosmic Cottage has been removed. I think it is supposed to mount behind the Cosmic Cottage though and not in front of it?

The game plays very well overall. Really happy with it. My modest little collection numbers three now. Took 30 years to get the first... 3 more months to get the 2nd... and about a week and a half to get the 3rd! Gotta hold-off on getting anymore until at least the New Year, lol.

Thanks!!

Did you check Starship Fantasy? Larry shows the cottage in his store. Check with him

#611 50 days ago

I read that wrong, you’re looking for the sign not the cottage itself. Sorry

Party Zone ramps are still pending. I'm arguing about the price to thermoform them.

#616 36 days ago

The sample set looks awesome!! I would love a new set, been patch repairing my right ramp for years and its for sure on its last legs

#617 29 days ago

Researching to buy a set of plastics for my party zone. I see several reproduction sets available from different companies. Are there any significant differences? Anything specific I should be looking for, or trying to avoid? thanks!

#618 29 days ago

The odds are they were all made by Planetary Pinball. There are a few tweaks that are needed. I just installed a set from PP last week on my game.

#619 27 days ago

Went through the last little nook and cranny on my PZ replacing light bulbs. Went with the same consistent style for each (frosted dome). The red GI feature looks incredible on this game. Love the lighting and how colourful it all is.

I noticed something underneath the Captain B. Zarr plastic that I wanted to ask about though. The two "request time" targets that are on either side of the DJ eject hole, it looks like those plastic targets will come back far enough to just come into contact with the rubber ring that is along the side of the Captain. And I saw that these rubber rings have slight cut marks in them. Enough so that it will eventually go right through and sever the rubber ring.

Is there a fix for this? Is it just a matter of putting a little extra thickness of padding in behind the plastic target cover and on top of the leaf switch end, so that it can't push back far enough to reach the rubber ring? I don't think it happens all the time, but probably does when you hit those targets hard. Anyone playing the game regularly I assume doesn't aim for that target directly a whole lot, as the ball caroms off at crazy angles. New players on my machine don't know that though and that whole Captain area sure does take a beating.

Party Zone ramps are up on the website, starship-fantasy.com. You may order them now but nothing will ship till Monday. When we release new ramps we normally get slammed and it may take us a day or 2 to ship all of them. No hurry. I made 150 sets.

How much would shipping to Canada be for the left and right ramps? Postal code N1E 7L5.

They look great! I bet if you made the garage ramp for TSPP you would have a ton of buyers since they are always broken. (mine is broken.)

Ordered my set. My ramps are ok but it’s worth to have a spare setup and will replace when I do my full restore on the game.

Fedex driver made a stop at my house today!

IMG_3300 (resized).JPG

I must be patient because everything that comes in to my home spends time in quarrantine first, so this box will sit where it lays for a day or two to let the fedex funk dissipate before opening.

Really a no-brainer to get a set when you consider how rare it has been to find a ramp in usable condition and what price that usable ramp would fetch.

Has anybody installed the new Party Zone ramps yet? I want to buy a set but wanted some owner feedback before pulling the trigger. How’s the fit and do they work as well as the OEM ones? Thanks in advance.

I got my set safe and sound last week. In middle of finishing my basement/ game room and then need to finishing my T2 project then ramps are going into party zone. Sorry it won’t be right away.

#628 10 days ago

Does anyone know the seller? I asked how much shipping would be to Canada and never got a reply.

#629 10 days ago

Alex, send your request to larry@starship-fantasy.com.

Received the Starship-Fantasy ramps from Irosent345 today - they were very well packaged and look to be of excellent quality.

Many thanks for making them.

I'll be keeping them inside my Party Zone cabinet as spares for the day the originals break!!
