I managed to pick up the Peyper Wolf Man with the Shrek translite today. For those who saw the post in the Project Pin thread, here is what I wound up with.

The seller was great, he had the pin in his house for 10+ years and as I suspected, swapped out the "risque" translite for the Shrek one because of the kids in the neighborhood playing it. OMG Boobs !!!!!. The original was not in the cabinet and he doesn't know where it is but I told him I would pay for his time and shipping if he could find it in the house. Fingers crossed.

When I got there I went to rotate down the head....... here is where it started to go bad. I drive a ford escape, I have to remove / rotate down the head from all pins to make them fit. Well this one had no hinges (here is red flag #1), it also had no head bolts, it did however have at least 6 screws holding the head to the cabinet...... from the inside of the cabinet........ no worries right ?. We just lift the playfield and reach in, only the screws are at an angle that's just not possible..... I wind up having to remove the head from the cabinet without it's bottom panel. Load the pin in the car without getting tetanus and head home.

Once i got it home I was able to really figure things out. At some point the hinges were removed and the holes filled with black caulk. The back panel was replaced (I'm guessing around the same time) and someone decided that while they had the back panel off they would screw the head to the cabinet.

The good side, the plastics and playfield are in great condition. I am still trying to figure out how the playfield tilt handles were supposed to work but the electronic ball launch was in interesting unexpected surprise. Most of the leg bolt brackets were stripped so I need a few more parts before I can get it on it's legs. I'm not sure how I will attack the back panel / head bottom panel yet but for $200 I'm still pretty happy I got it.

Wasn't a translite, it was a painted backglass.

My experience was you'll never find one.

I have seen some paper repros that look like crap.

That’s so sad! You have to willingly rip the head off?! Damn. The game looks gorgeous though, best of luck!

That’s what I thought. If you can find a good scan or print of one, I’d bet Steve at BGresto could make a new glass.

Still an awesome find, game I’d love to have. Definitely check back in here and let us know how the progress goes.

Nice find !
I did not see anything about this game fully working,
Does it play ?

They could have been metric originally?
I kind of had the same problem with the legs on a
Recel pinball machine.

Seller said it was "working until a few weeks ago and then wouldn't load the ball into the plunger area". I haven't even tried to power it up until I figure out how I will rebuild the backbox.

You can get the game to me and I’ll figure it out the backbox.

Luckily the ball not coming out of the trough isn’t a major issue. Hopefully you’ll get lucky and it’s just a switch, loose wire, coil or transistor.

I commissioned to have the artwork re-done with stock available source material by Riot Pinball and printed on a heavy translite material and Chuck at Spooky Pinball did it, he has the art file.
I had a few extras made and sold them.
Reach out to Chuck and see if he can help you out.

I know this post is an old one but if you are interested in a reproduction translite let me know and I will see if they are still available.
