Quoted from packie1:
I did not take a "before" photo and now am wondering if this standoff is supposed to be here or not. it looks too short and dosen't appear to attach to anything above.
Somewhat of a mystery, however, the standoff post does not appear to be factory!
Here are pics showing that area on the TTR flyer and on my machine.
The flyer shows no standoff post, just the nut fastening the plastic. This seems correct as there is nothing above for a standoff to fasten to. It also shows there is no other post above the plastic! My game (and some but not others, as above comments show) has a separate star post closer to the side of the cabinet.
I'll guess and say TTR was a game that saw several abrupt changes made from concept to final production. Elvira and the Party Monsters was being pushed next and low production of TTR (and Atlantis) was anticipating and being sacrificed for that. The Pinbot drop target decals, no star post in certain areas add to these on the fly changes.
[Note: I added the Pinbot drop target decals at a later date to my machine.]1 TTR (resized).JPG2 TTR (resized).JPG
