Quoted from 85vett:

On my LE he will catch some airballs.

I got an Autobot Le. I haven’t found something that looks good to stop that, yet.

I doubt their is anything. Not sure about yours but mine feels like the coils for the flippers are a bit overpowered for the game. When I finally get the game back (friend is storing until our house is ready) I'm going to put some weaker coils on it. I just did this on my Tron and it made it play SO MUCH better. I'll see how it does on TF.

For starscream I put a piece of door weatherstripping in the back corner which helped with balls getting stuck back their when he diverts the ball to the left lane. Not sure if yours gets stuck their or not too.

Yeah, I had a piece of door weatherstripping to do the same thing as I often have them get stuck in the corner when they fall off Starscream. Unfortunately lost the damn piece of rubber before I installed so have to get another one.. I don't mind the ball going off there, it is intentional, just pisses me off when it sticks in the corner and I lose a ball getting it out. I even got super long foreceps to install the rubber easier, just my kids did something with the rubber before I got there.

As for Ironhide, I've only had the ball get stuck up on him once ever in the year I've had the game. So not much of a problem for me. I've had the ball get stuck on Megatron exactly once as well but no idea how it did that one.

I got some parts from pinball life and made basically a really long post that is screwed into the wood side rail. It sticks up in the corner where the ball got stuck on starscreams far front left platform. 100% keeps the ball from getting stuck there.

Also have some pinball foam on the rail itself so when the ball falls off the left side it will roll off into the left orbit lane 100%

I can take some pics and get a part list together if anyone is interested.

#805 67 days ago

Found a post in this thread where I had pics and what I did already.

Please post your findings on a different coil. I think that would help. Airballs are an issue. I made a post behind Megatron with a rubber ring to keep balls out of there. Helps a lot.

Will do. Will be a couple months though as my house isn't scheduled to close till mid Feb. Then the fun part of moving 6 machines upstairs starts

Finally got some illuminated flipper buttons from Comet for my Combo LE. Love the way they look. And took like 2 mins to install.

Ever since I installed my cliffy for the megatron scoop, I’ve had ball hang ups when the ball comes down the super skill shot lane into the back of Megatron. Lived with it for a while now. Tried putting layers of Mylar back there to make a ramp up over the edge of the cliffy. Sorta worked.

Finally took the time to tear all that topside apart and I modified the cliffy by cutting out the right hand side of it. I put a layer of Mylar over the edge of the scoop hole directly on the play field.

Haven’t had a ball hang up since.

First game after getting the machine back in place I completed roll out and collected the jackpot on ball 1. Unfortunately I had doublers on all shots but the damn all spark shot where you collect the jackpot... By the end of the game I had completed all the modes but my nemesis mode devastator . For some reason in that mode I just can’t hit shots anymore. It’s a mental block.

Still come back to this game and have fun with it. Underrated for sure.

Next time I travel to Fairmont for work you gotta show me how to play. I’ve yet to get Roll Out or Hail Megatron after a year of owning this machine.

Was able to get into All Hail Megatron, beat it, then start completing the other side of the board. Best day ever!

It's not about who you are but who you know. Just snagged this beautiful LE PF, never installed in a game. In a box, standing straight up in the closet away from the sun. Someday.... : )!

I've been making my own art blades for some of my games. Made and installed a transformers set the other day, I have an Epson ultra pro gallery printer, and I got a roll of fat head like material -Pretty happy with how they turned out.

I like how you used the animated version. I would love to retheme this whole game as the 80s version.

Nice find. I have one as well that HSA did a clear coat job too. One day, I'll find the time to swap it in.

Get a color DMD in your game.

It does wonders for the video clips.

I went with the Color LED...to each their own!

Yeah I want a color DMD bad, I just get the shakes and close the order screen every time I see the $400 total

Mines got one and the total was closer to 650$ Cad before it gets here. Well worth it best mod ever.

Go for the color LED...only starts with a 3.

Transformers is a definite must for Color DMD.

Yeah....this.
The price tag stops me

#826 20 days ago

All 3 of my games have color did support that people rave about. So my problem is that I can't just get it for one... id have to get 3. So 1200 is not trivial.

#827 14 days ago

Its a tiny mod but I like it. Thanks aurich for making these!
