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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
We are shooting for a Nov release for TNA right after SWLE rail EL. No money down just making a list at this point.
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.
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 email@example.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.
Ordered my tape today from Pinballlife.com
Cant have the game yet but my tape player will love me again .
Yet another reason to keep my 2001 F150 lol.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Power ball stock landed tonight. Power package with side rails will be added Saturday for those of you that want lit side rails. These ceramic pinballs are beautiful and built to modern tolerances.
On more special mod will be available close to expo time.

Combo kits now listed here in my Pinside shop and on my web site.
Thanks for the support as always.
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.
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.
