Currently sanding down this piece of work in anticipation (don’t let the lighting fool you). There is a petrified bee honeycomb on the left inside leg... if that gives you any idea on the condition. Looking forward to resurrecting it from the dead with the hardtop. Many thanks to Outside Edge and Skypilot for their hard work.

No sense in trying to speculate or complain about the timeline. Those who sanded down their playfields (including myself) were warned not to do so until the product was released. I imagine those who did are only antsy for the cash that they are going to get when they sell their HS with a new hardtop. If my MPU was fully functioning I would have never have sanded it down, regardless of how trashed my pf was. What an exciting time in pinball to even have products like this and I’m just thankful I don’t have to restore my pf with acrylic paints

Quoted from turbo2nr:

Ordered early last week.
Do we have to wait for production?
Any idea when these might be ready for shipping?
Could they be shipping this week? That would be cool.
We have started to forget how to re-assemble this machine.

I’m with you on the the reassembly. If someone wouldn’t mind posting some detailed pics of their disassembly and even once the hardtop is on without the plastics installed that would be awesome!

Sad news folks...

ANNOUNCEMENT: As of today, July 2, 2019, no new orders will be accepted until further notice.


We've had to temporarily shut down operations for several months while we retool our production. Never fear, we will be resuming production of our Hardtops and Wall Graphics. We just can't take new orders or make any products until our new systems and printers are up and running.

All orders that have already been submitted will be completed and shipped on time. However, no new orders will be taken at this time. We have temporarily closed our online store.

When we are ready to take orders again, we will update this site, our Facebook page, and on Pinside.

​We look forward to getting back to business as soon as we can. Have a great summer!
