Have they posted when shipping will start on TNA?
The last stream I watch had cabs all over the place at Spooky.
Cant wait to play a completed version.

Quoted from lordloss:

I'd like to start a pinside fight/argument:
Sell as a Kit?

If they could sell as a complete kit no warranty maybe but just not worth the liability of unskilled purchasers messing it up.
The profit is in the mass production labor IMO.

#3309 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballfantexas:

Sorry but this wrong in some many ways!

Disagree. If they did a kit in my eyes it would have to be a full playfield that drops into a donor cab. A full back box panel with few connections.....then people would want the kit to be 3k which would be a wash profit wise. Kit form is very vague so levels of costs estimates are a WAG anyway. Like stated before will not happen but fun to kick around idea.

Quick note to the TNA fans ...unboxed mine...well sort of.

!!!! Lit side rails are coming !!!!

Scott and Terry were super helpful in getting me a rail for test fitting.

Sneak peak...what do you think if the color? This is the off color lit color will be similar to my Aerosmith rail el.

To get on the pre- release list with no money down email me at hookedonpniball@outlook.com
We are shooting for a Nov release for TNA right after SWLE rail EL. No money down just making a list at this point.

20170929_213211_resized_1 (resized).jpg

This is the El behind the rail off. Lit it will be a purple color.

Quoted from Fortytwo:

I beleive its a el backlit side rail. But the first pic didn't load.

Yes that is correct.....Lit side rails are coming.
One round is planned but as the deliveries and production ramps up we can do another round later.
Looks like I will not have a machine till 2018 but Scott has agreed to install a set and do some glam shots for me.

#3599 1 year ago
Quoted from Fytr:

Be nice if this was a factory install option. I'm not too keen on the idea of ripping my siderails off my NIB game to add them myself.

Good news on these - the rails are screwed in. So if you can run a Philips head you can install the panels.
The panels will be like my other panels which are super simple to install. Once the rail is off you peel and stick the panels.
The wiring follows the glass channel to the back box. Power supply is a plug in and play to a factory location, cant get much simpler that that.

For those interested the lit rails will be available second week of December. If you would like to be in early email me before Dec. 1st hookedonpinball@outlook.com.
I will be sending Scott his set for some install shots first before shipping begins. This is a custom cast el panel that fits between the rail and cab no permanent modification to cabinet to install and they are plug in and play.

Quoted from cooked71:

Butter baby. They group a bunch of Butter cabs together when they’re producing because they’re a PIA to produce. Means some get them early, but also some get them late.

And don't forget container orders. If you have a dozen going to AU then the sequence may be off.

119 lands Wed. Cant wait to get it set up.

#5968 11 months ago
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

I heard there's a vendor that makes some killer lit side rails, you should check them out.

I’ll finally get a install vid lol.
More good news for those purchasing side rail kits. Going forward all will have a remotely wired button to quickly change the light mode. On solid, slow pulse and fast pulse will be easilly changed without having to lift up the playfield. Peraonally i like them lit always but we added the remote button due to feedback.

We also get to measure out for our next tasteful addition. Keep notes with your machine # my good fellas.

#5977 11 months ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

Wait... you can make them pulse without the button?

Yes the first run had a button on the black power box body. Second run has the button on a wire that can be mounted remotely (about 2 feet from power box).

Look what just showed up

TNA Power Balls are on the way to our site, was told 30 days just a heads up. They will be $39 each and if you buy more than one price drops to $36.
I have been told people are paying $50 and thats just a bit much for me.....so I will be stocking them on my site.


Also we have EL side panels in stock now and reordering in July for later runs.
This run and future runs have a remote flash option swictch if you would rather them blink (two speeds).
The original run also had this but the switch was located on the transformer box itself.


Two more mods / bling coming in Aug.
This game gets the most play in my line up and it seems to still be gaining steam.

Quoted from pickleric:

This price just changed within the last few minutes. It was $49.95 five minutes ago.

Lol its all good. What a miraculous price discount after I post.
I would not have stocked them if it was this price before, great for the community.

#6391 9 months ago

Yes after going through three vendors what your looking for is G10 know one makes a G05 in ceramic from what i was told. G10 is the closest to perfect ceramic i had found again after being told by two manufacturers G05 has never been made. Im sure pbl has the same spec as the original? Unsure spec that is and Terry always sells top quality parts as we all know.

Quoted from estrader:

So do you have to glue the flipper buttons back or will the plastic nut hold them? Why do they glue them?

I asked the same question and I was told the glue is to hold them in place for location games.
Seems that bass and shaker really put those flipper buttons to the test.
I think in home location it is unnecessary.

Quoted from andrewket:

Spooky shipped my TNA via R&L, and it didn't make it to the destination terminal on time. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, it happens - but it turns out next week is just really bad for me for a delivery. So I called R&L to try to get ahead of it and schedule delivery to give me the most options, and they told me they handed it off to a partner carrier. This is the first time R&L has done this on one of my shipments. I'm in the DC area - local terminal is Baltimore. The partner hasn't called, and I have no way of reaching them so now I'm just waiting. I've used R&L maybe 10 prior times and they delivered themselves. Anyone else have this experience in the greater DC area?

They do that in NC also. My last RL delivery - the delivery guys were in a smaller truck but it all went well and the tracker never changed form in route.
RL seems to be slipping in my area. I used them for years but now their rate are sky high and they have deemed my road "non accessible" after years of deliveries. All the other big boys get in here without issue. Subletting deliveries seems to be a cost cutting move to me.

Quoted from bsobie:

Do the speaker lights on TNA reflect off the glass and effect game play any?

Yes but not as bad as a DMD on an older game.
Well worth it.

Spooky has the best box in the business.
We had five game boxes in the garage and my wife said I was a hoarder and they had to go. I started burning them and she said dont but that one- lol. Spooky is setting the bar high when the wife gives the stamp of approval for keeping a box.
