    What titles do you guys know of that always seem to have the same exact part, or parts missing from pretty much every one, and what part is it ?? A coworker and I were randomly talking about it for some reason. Topper's don't count because they aren't really "needed".

    What I've seen.......

    Street Fighter II - the plastic car inside of the playfield

    Cue Ball Wizard - the pool stick

    TMNT - the sewer lid

    High Speed - Traffic light

    T2 clear triangle plastics 3x. Not important but mostly missing.

    It seems like I've seen quite a lot of people with the knocker assembly missing from TAF pins. However, someone finally remade them recently: http://www.mantisamusements.com/taf1.htm

    The steel shooter lane flap on Seawitch.

    The blinders on tommy are apparently often removed.

    Shadow rings and WH20 topper are a couple annoying ones.

    The wire gates on Scared Stiff
    They get broken an never replaced

    #9 4 years ago

    Wire gate coming out of the vortex ramp on Pinbot.
    The flat wire lifting ramp mech protector on pinbot is usually missing as well.

    Center ball lock gates on F-14.

    Shooter lane ball gate on Southpark.

    I think the most common missing part in pinball is ball gates.

    The ball gate on the pop bumper area exit on BOP.
    That gate is always missing, causing way too many SDTM balls.

    That round centering flange for the eyelids seems to be always missing from Roadshow and Funhouse.

    The ball bracket that stops balls from going under the right ramp in Williams IJ

    I think the spring for the ball lock arm is an even bigger problem. It is with mine, anyway.

    Sorcerer, the broken purple "hand" plastic in the middle of the playfield. It ain't always missing, but it's always broken.

    #15 4 years ago

    Topper on JD TFTC JP etc....

    Would manuals count??

    Every nighmare on elm pin has missing broken blades on Freddy's glove. I notice a lot of tales from the crypt are missing the shooter handle, or it's broken too.

    That's right, I had forgotten all about the Freddy blades. You guys made me realize there are allot of things out there missing than I expected.

    WOF always seems to have code missing...

    #21 4 years ago

    Priceless! Not only perfectly true but I've never seen someone quote themselves 2 posts in a row! Well played sir!

    The far back plastic next to the ferris wheel is always broken on Cyclone...

    #23 4 years ago

    The plastic to stop the ball bouncing up and hitting the glass above the skill shot basket on space jam. Don't even know if it was original from the factory because it seems rare in the games I've seen.

    The hand on class of 1812.

    The comet orange ramp is often cracked.

    #24 4 years ago

    The plastic divider that prevents ball jams in the TZ gumball machine.

    #25 4 years ago

    The T2 hunter ship,either broken or missing

    #26 4 years ago

    The service rails on the latest stern pro pins?

    #27 4 years ago

    MM dragon wings.

    Stern Dracula is always missing the plastic over the left saucer.

    The very thin plastic above the drop targets on Atlantis.
