    Periodically; I order some parts in bulk from http://Pinball.Center … namely the

    Translucent Pop Bumper bodiesand

    Frosted Drop Targets. I'm planning on doing a bulk order later this month (waiting on bodies to be manufactured in Germany) but I hope to have the parts in time for TPF'20 - aka late March.

    That'd said; since

    Pinball.Center does not ship to North America- I offer my fellow pinball fanatics the option of piggy backing on my larger order with some smaller stuff.

    IF there is a hard-to-find part they offer that you want (and can't buy in the states); please reply here... or send me a PM and we'll work out the details.

    I live in Hong Kong and they ship direct. I understand they don’t ship direct to USA. Are you using a forwarding company?

    #3 1 year ago

    No. I have a business relationship with Pinball.Center. He will ship direct to me; just not "regular" customers for some reason.
    Never really been explained the reason why.

    The window for this order closed about two weeks ago as I've already received this batch of orders.

    I expect to need to do another order late April. So if there is interest; please drop me a PM or post here.

    Planning a new order (smaller) in 4-6wks. If you have needs; now would be the time. I don't foresee doing another order for 4-6mths.

    #6 9 months ago

    Need to check, there were some spot targets i was wanting for alvin g's.

    #7 9 months ago

    Let me know via PM.
    Please provide me their "order number" and a direct link, so I know to order the correct part in that PM.

    Deadline for this order is this weekend (9/7).

    #9 8 months ago

    Shit- just yesterday found a plastic I needed.
    Of course only available through Pinball Center.
    Damn, my fault, my fault. I had time.

    #10 8 months ago

    Haven't ordered yet - still waiting for an item to go in stock.
    I'll probably pull the trigger in a few days. so will update the title with the new ETA.

    #11 8 months ago

    This order closed as the order has been submitted to Pinball.Center.

    I expect to have another order in 2-3months for some switch targets.

    zitt are you still ordering from pinball.center
    I noticed they have a WWF royal rumble repro header. Any experience with those?
    Also the data east launch button assembly

    Have the housing in stock at my store.
    No experience with toppers from them.

    Should be ordering again in a month or two.

    #14 8 months ago

    All but three orders from this group has been invoiced and shipped. Those three orders need special packaging. I waiting for USPS to deliver the shipping materials I need. Once that happens; I'll be invoicing those three final orders from this group buy.

    I hope it helps my fellow pinball collectors out in the long run.

    #15 8 months ago

    Received my plastic. Many thanks Zitt!
    Great opportunity for everyone to get those specific parts not offered anywhere else.

    #16 7 months ago

    I'd be in for a couple of items on the next order.

    Quoted from aztarac:

    I'd be in for a couple of items on the next order.

    PM me.
    So far; I have no interest. If I have no interested; I'll just order what I need when they go in stock and keep the shipping low as my items aren't expected to take up much volume / weight.

    Edit:
    I've updated the OP title to reflect a purely unofficial deadline. I'm waiting on a custom order of Lollypop targetsto be custom manufactured and expect them to be ready in a couple of weeks. I won't pull the trigger any earlier than 10/20; BUT I make no guarantees that I won't delay past the date. IE if the lollypop targets aren't ready - I will not be ordering.

    I've only had 2 or 3 interested people. Hoping some more will step up so we can share the shipping costs among more people.

    #19 7 months ago

    Shipped the last orders from Post #11's order. These were the translites which needed special packing.

    I'm going to inquire about my special order later today.

    Bumping thread as I expect to be able to order the standup targets I was trying to line up late last year.
    I've been told "two weeks" ... for stock to be available. I'm also going to need to re-order some pop bumper bodies again.

    So; if you have a Pinball.Center need; please get back to ASAP via PM. I'll be ready to pull the trigger on this order as soon as I'm told my standup targets are instock and orderable.

    I'be telling people mid-year for the next group buy; but things may cause me to pull the trigger early.
    Specifically; COVID-19 economy has caused Euro to USD rates to be more favorable.
    If I can get about 10-15 customers interested in a group buy; We may do one at the end of April.

    If you want in on the next GroupBuy; send me a PM and we'll discuss terms.

    #27 42 days ago

    not a huge outpouring of desire.
    Bump.

    #28 36 days ago

    Free bump, I’ll take a look and see

    Last and final bump. I already have a 31ish line item order in the cart. I'm getting a little tired of spread-sheeting these lists.

    If you don't contact me with your list by noon on 4/29; you won't be included in this group buy.

    Bro, you always provide a Great Service!

    #35 27 days ago

    Window for this order is closed. Order submitted a few minutes ago.
    I'll be in touch with those on this group buy in a few days w/ ball park estimate once exchange rate and shipping to usa is known.

    #36 26 days ago

    I may have to get on that next order. I’ve been eyeballing that Spider-Man armor they sell... I don’t have the scratch at the moment for this one

    #37 26 days ago

    Armour is not allowed in the general group buys because of the length of the armor.
    Armour requires a special group buy and must be packaged with exactly 4 other sets. Even then shipping is very expensive.
    "best price include shipping 240€
    but its equal if you order 1 Set or 5 shipping same, parcel always big"

    This means we'd need 4 other people to move forward with a armor purchase understanding the shipping for armor would be 240euros/5.

    #38 25 days ago

    Pinball.Center order for the round ending 4/29 has been submitted and paid. All Pinsiders should have gotten an IM from me with your ball park totals and a request for physical addresses and paypal details. Thanks to everyone who participated; because of you, there were 51 line items in this order... bringing the group shipping to 2.33 per item. For those keeping track; the order was over 1812 euros and include 159 euros in shipping.

    #39 25 days ago

    Somehow I've missed this thread but will add it to my favorites.
    I'd like to get in on this next time. I'm always needing something from Pinball Center.

    #40 25 days ago

    The best thing to do... is after 2-3weks for now... PM me with the title "pinball.Center" and I'll try to go thru and remind people when I'm thinking of a new order.
    I had about 3-4 people waiting in the wings for this order to move forward... so it does happen.
    Once a group buy is complete and settled up - I archive old PMs; that way my inbox doesn't become completely unmanageable.

    I'm still in for the ACDC armor set. So we need 3 more people to get in on a armor group buy.

    #42 24 days ago

    KingBW; you're armor set is already in the previous group buy which we are waiting for the armor to go "in stock" after the factories restart in europe.
