Also found this photo on the web...does the ramp actually lay completely flat on the top face if you flip it over? It is kind of hard to tell at this angle. Mine curves back downward after the 180 turn, as it heads for the out-hole in the ramp.

Hey Hilton, I am tuning in the molds this week and should be ready to run them on demand going forward. I will be able to offer them in different colors as well. Jim is going to try a set of purple ones, and I was thinking smoked black would look good also. And of course, I'll have the original red available. Pricing will be $125 a set. They are also available individually should someone only need one.

#307 6 months ago

Looking fwd to see some colors for sure.

I think Blue(to match pf blue) could be cool.

I will for sure take a set! Just meet to see some colors.

I'm sure I'll be getting a set too. Can't wait to see the colors. Thanks for offering these!!

#309 6 months ago

I am ready to run some, but I'm having trouble getting colors at the moment with some things being shut down. I'll be sure to post up a color spread when I receive them.

#310 6 months ago

Count me in for a set when these are made.

#311 6 months ago

Ran a few test colors today...red, smoked, purple and light blue. I still am waiting on a darker blue as well.

Good eye! No bubbles...just weird reflections off the micro texture in the plastic. I probably shouldn't use the flash for these. I've had bubbles before, and it's usually a sign of being too hot. Those ones get rejected if it ever happens.

Will you be able to get pics of them fitted in games at all?

Would be awesome to see with normal lighting behind them.

Still thinking the dark blue (like on PF) will be awesome looking!

I'd like to get pictures of each...but I need to find someone willing to put them in with standard white GI to get an accurate image.

I can also help if needed. I have a NOS ramp set, but think I might spring for a dark Blue set instead. I have one of Jody's ramps in my spring break and they are very nice.

Any fellow TX owners have one with the Vitrigraph playfield? I'm trying to find out if all of the examples out there have had the "plastic surface" trimmed by hand as needed when the pin was built. The few examples I have seen look kind of rough.

The regular looks much better.
There is good reason it was only tested and then canned.

Yes, 2 I’m restoring, one for me and one for a friend. Anything can be bought if your willing to pay, me and my friend were willing to pay up!

After finishing RoboWar last year I've been searching for a TX Sector and I can finally say that I've joined the Club! I didn't get many photos as I'm storing it at a buddy's house while I move. The machine is all original except for having a Lisy80 installed in place of the MPU. I don't really care for this solution, so I've ordered a Swemmer 80B MPU replacement board which I'll have soon.

Unfortunately, it was advertised as 100% functional but when I arrived at the seller's place the music wasn't working! Sound effects are there but no music. No red LED on the soundboard. I'll start working on that soon, I have some experience with fixing 80b sounds. Can't wait to see it in the lineup next to Robo-War!!

Clear and blue...I can make the blue heavier if requested...I was thinking of leaving it on the transparent side for the first attempt.

So excited to find this thread!
I am new to the pin community (longtime googler and lurked from time to time, but never registered), and I have become so obsessed with TX-Sector over the past year or so. I thought it would be easy to buy one when I first started out as a newbie enthusiast, but I have never seen one for sale, haha (for any price).
Happy to be here, and enjoying looking through this thread!
