I can't do the more x-rated versions, this is about as racy as I can get. Is there any other options that I can buy out there? I'm not about to get one make one myself, I don't care quite that much. Can anybody speak to the quality of the ones this guy makes that are found on ebay? This image is pretty small to really judge any detail. & how do they look when lit up on the game? Compared to the original?

bump. would appreciate any insight as to the quality of this guys work or if there are other options out there for wpt, before I blindly drop $100 or so.

Tacky as hell.

There is one alternative WPT translite that I thought actually looked decent, the one that shows all the locations on it.

Then again, I think most/all alternate translites look terrible.

#4 7 years ago

All of his alternate translites I have seen are excellent and well built, same quality of any normal translite you would find by the manufacturer. Buy with confidence.

Good to hear about the quality, bemmett, thanks.
flashburn, I'm not blown away by the art here either although it still may be better than the original. I did see somebody make a nice wpt translite that I thought looked good with some lightning bolts, but I think it was custom made & not something I can buy. As of now, this 1 guy is my only option AFAIK.

Exact same feeling for me. WPT is a keeper in my small lineup, and I will have to change that translite soon or later...

Love WPT, don't waste $100....one of my favorite pins, who cares what it looks like!

#9 7 years ago

I like my STTNG alt translite- but I find that it sticks to the backglass a lot. It looks awful when unlit- lit it looks great.

I kind of feel this way, but I would "waste" $100 if the alt translite was a nice enough improvement both on & off. I don't mind a sexy chick on the translite, but with my being a fan of hand drawn art (& I'm sure most of us are this way) I would prefer a something a little more artistic, sexy lady or not.
Honestly I'm not horribly turned off by the original translite, I feel that it isn't good or bad. Just blah.

Where do I find this one?

#12 7 years ago

This is the one we have on our machine. It's much MUCH better than the stock one.

Good question. I just spent 10 minutes google searching Pinside without finding it. I'll try some more a bit later.

#14 7 years ago

I bought a WPT from Tonymiddendorf on here and it came with that ALT translite w/ the locations on it. I sold it to Pinballkim w/ that translite on it. It was MUCH better than the factory one, imo. I believe Tonymiddendorf bought it from a pinsider, but no idea whom.

#15 7 years ago

hey i might have that translite available for you. I had it on my game at one point and sold it to trent. I think he still might have that translite for cheap

#16 7 years ago

If it doesn't have Courtney Friel on it, it is not correct... If someone comes out with a decent replacement with the three voice actor from the show/machine on it, then I might buy one. Until then the original is still the best.

I liked Shana Hiatt better....

Not for sale but this is the one I made. It was intentional that I made it with dark colors. The whiter and brighter the colors on the translight the more glare you will have on the playfield glass. Hire a graphic artist and make your own.

Very nice. I think that one is my favorite alternative so far. Considering the clear upper playfield, glare reduction is very important on this game.

Yeah I really like that, if you sold it I'd buy it for sure.

She made a nice video for Playboy once upon a time... She is surely smoking hot!!

Replacing the stock translite is still on my "to do" list.

The only worse translite made was The Shadow IMHO.
A bad image of Courtney is still way better than a Baldwin in any resolution.

True, but I think she's hotter now than she was back in her Hawaiian Tropic days.

Disagree, I would go with anything late 80's Gottlieb.

Mostly true, except Bone Busters

In my opinion, THIS is the worst translite:

Cant argue (against) its horrible as well.

#31 7 years ago

Agree, needs a revamp

#32 7 years ago

Some translites can scare blind people......

#33 7 years ago

Amen to that. I just got a Bone Busters & I love that backglass, mine still looks like new. That LAH art really is horrific, definitely underrated in how horrible it is.
The guy in the bottom center looks like a job I would of done my first time in photoshop while blackout drunk.

Put that up top and JP below and you just might have the worst possible combination 1990+

Me too. With the exception of one.
