We've found the Art for the Time Warp Backglass.
I'm trying to find out if this has ever been produced as a Translite,
And trying to gauge the level of interest in it.
It's really cool art.

Would you make translites or backglasses?

#3 4 years ago

I would want one if they are in the $200 range. A translite would be fine too in the $100 range. I've never seen a translite for sale nor have I seen one 'out of stock' anywhere. Bgresto also has not done this backglass

There was a guy here on Pinside that did the translights for $50 last year.

Not aware of any repros available.
Homemade solution here:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/time-warp-translite-re-creation

The homemade substitute looks pretty good, but I think I would still buy a real repro glass or translight.
Lots of discussion about how most Time Warp backglasses are very flaky with age. It's an underrated game, partially due to the normally ugly backglass.

#6 4 years ago

Translites probably

#7 4 years ago

That would be good, what are we talking for cost?

#8 4 years ago

Has PPS ever thought of selling these as a poster... I would buy a few if these!

Actually...we have...is there a real interest?...what size would be preferable?

#10 4 years ago

Real backglasses rule...

#11 4 years ago
Quoted from bayoubilly70:

Real backglasses rule...

But there is a substantial investment in doing a run of backglasses.
But we could start a poll to see how much interest there actually is.

#12 4 years ago

I would say actual size of backglass!

#13 4 years ago

And maybe more a print then a poster, like when you go to a museum and you buy a print of a painting in a gift shop

#14 4 years ago

My original isn´t the best so I would want to be in on this.

Will come in handy when it´s time to shop my T.Warp many moons ahead.

Another backglass along the same lines

#16 4 years ago

That's pretty cool! They don't even have photos on IPDB... I'd buy a poster!

#17 4 years ago

Wow. Cyclops is badddd ass.
Needs some cleavage, but very sweet!

If there is a real interest i can get these produced quickly...and i'll look into the pricing

#19 4 years ago

interested

#20 4 years ago

Interested, but pricing is the key, since it won't double the value of the machine!

#21 4 years ago

interested

Yeah, they made a billion Time Warps, so it never seems to go up in value.

#23 4 years ago

Interested in Translites?... and Posters?

#24 4 years ago

Just a translite for me

#25 4 years ago

I would buy a translite.

#26 4 years ago

Translite for me too

#27 4 years ago

Time Warp or Cyclops?

#28 4 years ago

Sorry, Time Warp translite

#29 4 years ago

Translite

#30 4 years ago

Time Warp

#31 4 years ago

While a real backglass would be way nicer, on a game this inexpensive, I'd say a $50 translight would go over much better.

poll?

#32 4 years ago

That's what I was thinking, Vid.

#33 4 years ago

Id be interested in a timewarp translite

#34 4 years ago

It would be cool if you had translites of every WMS SYSTEM 3-7 pin. Posters would be cool too! A lot of these older BGs are in bad shape and a readily available translite would be awesome!

poll?

I agree

#36 4 years ago

I really wish I would have kept my Time Warp... Damn it! Translite makes more sense though.

#37 4 years ago

How About this one too?
It's Fireball...I know there were several iterations of this game.

Even at $50, that translight would be equal to the value of that game, because it was a non-coin-op, home unit that Sears used to sell for $699.

The Fireball translight that almost everybody needs is Fireball Classic. Never seen a good backglass that was not faded for that one.

I would be in for a Time Warp translite if the price was resonable.

Update on price?

#41 4 years ago

looking into the price

#42 4 years ago

I'd be in for a Time Warp translite depending on price.

#43 4 years ago

interested in a translite

#44 4 years ago
Quoted from harry_pps:

Time Warp or Cyclops?

If you do a Cyclopes backglass, there would be several of us interested. They fade really badly.

See above. He means Williams Cyclops, not Game Plan Cyclopes. Sorry, but I don't think this is the one you are looking for.

#47 4 years ago

#48 4 years ago

Harry,

10 games that PPS should always have a translight available! (if you don't have all the system 3-7 pins) I pass on a lot of games because backglass is shot.. A cheap alternative, readily Available would save a lot of these games from being parted out... It's the right thing to do!
