Quoted from FTN_Ferry:

Cheers, and a shout out to John for the notification about the add

Congrats FTN_Ferry! Your new TX looks really good from the photos! It almost makes me wish I had purchased it! And the LED tubes work really well, thanks again for that tip.

And hopefully now you can use the TX soundboard to help you troubleshoot the RW sound issue you are having. When I rebuilt my Haunted House, having a Black Hole down in the arcade really helped out.

All the best!

Just picked this beautiful example up! Anyone else have a fusions on theirs? I’d be curious to know how you have them laid out. Best music of the 80’s no doubt!

Could anyone help me with the part numbers for the slingshot and drop target reset plungers ?
Manual lists only assemblies MA-135 and MA-1047 and I have been unable to pin them down on any of the usual sites.

Thanks, that is of course an option, but I would prefer to buy the few plungers I need in Europe so they don't become riduculously expensive due to shipping, taxes etc. and I don't think it would be good style to ask them and then buy elsewhere.

So if anyone would happen to know the numbers I would appreciate it

For reference : drop target plunger seems to be part number 25607 and A-272 seems to be the plunger (without link) for the slingshots.

Pinball resource indicates the right EOS switch is double : http://www.pbresource.com/KT-GFLIPSYS80B.html#txsector
But I can't seem to find any relevant switch in the switch matrix - or am I blind ?

Does anyone know where I could find an apron, or does anyone have an extra? Slim chance I know. Mine is the same at the original, but the white ink is yellow. Drives me nuts.

42 metal ball guides pulled out, washed, tumbled and hammered back into place.
Now for the rest ...

Best of Pinball in Germany sells apron decals. You can check to see if they have the one that you need and let the group know.

Does anyone know who the composer(s) was/were for the amazing music and sfx on this pin ?
Would have been fun to be able to check out other pins from the same person.

Can someone explain with a graphic on how the "transporting" of the ball is accomplished.

What tricks did Trudeau pull off to get that to work.

There is always a ball captured in one of the "teleports", hidden from view. Depending on where the the ball is captured, the opposite teleport will be lit. When you shoot the lit teleport, it will release the ball from the other teleport to achieve the desired teleporting effect. Now things are switched around and the other teleport will be lit.

Each teleport has two ball capture holes with a switch and release mechanism in it. One to "detect" a ball being shot into the teleport, and another one to capture the ball. When you shoot a ball into the unlit teleport (the one that is currently holding the ball), it will simply release the locked ball and re-lock the ball that you just shot in there.
