Quoted from Robertstone0407:

Thank you, i am about to power up today for test out. I thought it looked like a cool street lamp. Also i got asked if i can make some of the mini playfield thumb screws. Is anyone interested in this?

yes I'm in for one. mine is missing

I have to say that I really think this pin is cool. So much so that I took the time to watch the movie last weekend. Wow! What a piece of crap! Stupid in so many ways, and I even fell asleep before it was over. IMHO, the movie doesn’t do this pin justice. Got to play the pin at TPF last year and really liked it, can’t say the same for the flick.

#4403 9 days ago

As a recent new member of this club, I watched the movie last weekend as well. I agree that a lot of it was pretty damn stupid, but it was still mildly entertaining AND more importantly, I now have a much better appreciation of the game's modes and callouts. As such, I'd recommend watching it. The Sanctum in the flick looks pretty cool too.

Anyway - great game! And FWIW, pics of my TS's pinblades are below.

Despite the previous poopooing by others, I still think they look great! I particularly like how well the red accenting, that the scarf provides, ties into the overall playfield aesthetics beyond just the nightime cityscape that the other pinblade set only consists of. To each his own though.

Looks great Tuna, thanks for sharing!

I just got my Shadow a couple of weeks ago and intend on watching the movie at some point simply to understand the game a bit better. At the time I bought my LOTR I had not watched a minute of any of the movies but found I had a much better appreciation for the game after binge watching the trilogy.

The movie reminds me of Marvel's recent Dr. Strange Flick.

After getting my Shadow, I sat down and watched it with my kids. I had seen it but they had not; it isn't good enough to actually have on movie rotation. I think it helped them understand the game and it is nice to put a face with the voice and such.

Also just got my @aurich translight yesterday! Can't wait to install it this weekend!

I would agree that the only thing the movie is good for is better understanding the game. Also, if I had a Shadow, very first upgrade would be to get rid of any trace of Alec Baldwin's mug on it.

After this little exercise my interest is peaked. I'm going to hunt out pins at this year's TPF that are movie themed that I've not seen, spend some time playing them, and then later watch the movie. Seems kind of backwards, but I have a feeling that I may like more of the pins than I do the movies.

All done on my shadow restore, custom grips, brass ramps and wire forms, black powdercoat, new mini playfield and plastics, cab redone

Did you clean and polish the mount and targets? How are the springs?

It looks like one of the springs is weak. I cleaned and when i push on one it stays up. Where can i find the springs

I used car wax on all the metal and moving parts to make it lighting fast.

Thanks brother, im rocking your mod too.i found my issue,the game disables the targets cause that one doesnt latch. Easy fix. Looks like ill be tearing it down again lol

#4414 7 days ago

Robertstone407. Looks badass. What color bulbs in the back spotlights? Purple? And is there a reason for for not adding the silver domes around the spotlights on the top playfield?

Never heard of waxing drop targets. Only ever cleaned them periodically. If the springs are good.

I often use spotlights without the silver reflector domes on my games. Without the domes, they are less obtrusive and offer better light spread.

Thats a great idea!!

I had issues with my targets sticking and not working right. Cleaning helped but replacing springs is what really fixed it. Looking at the manual, the spring is part# 10-364. Replace all four.
