Need to replace or rebuild the pop bumper boards on my Haunted House project. I like all of the features on the new units. I have found Rottendog, Flipp (Pascal), Homepin. Are there others? I read something about one from Pinball Lizard. Any opinions about which one is best. Anyone run these?

Why not just a rebuild?
Most parts are still available.
Only the big transistor is obsolete, but that can be replaced for a TIP102.

I used these during my Black Hole restore.

I like the protection features and troubleshooting LEDs on the new units. Not good at soldering but might attempt a small board like this,

The ones from homepin are nice:

The power up delay feature prevents coils from locking on. So much better than the original Gottlieb design.

I haven't used others but I like the Homepin ones - has diagnostic and test facility, protection from lock on and standard readily available components that are not surface mount with a robust pcb.

Or replace with a 2N6284 if you want that 'original' look to it.

Thanks Ed!
I didn't know that.
