Here's a thought: what if all of us that wanted a PF fronted $1k each towards making it happen. Would Wade run it if each of us sent in money for one?

Pinball Rescue who makes the reproduction plastics is going out of business soon. So you better buy a set now with a hope that this project gets off the ground.

Oh no! Terrible news. Their plastics are pretty good and they have a great selection. Will be placing an order this week with a few other things

Given that an unrestored, as-is, game sold for almost $4,500 not that long ago, I’m tempted to front the money to make the PF and BG happen........ almost...... what's in it for me?

Wow, I wonder what a nice conditioned fully working, shopped with new plastics, targets, caps and cards would bring?

From that same dude in France who has a ton of them for some reason. If there wasn't the flipper wear for this one, it would be a good candidate, but restoring worn flipper areas is a pain in the ass/usually looks best if you just airbrush a wood pattern over it which is lame.

I've been thinking about this quite a bit today.

I know it’s an old thread, but put me down for a playfield and backglass.

I’m pretty sure the idea of this project is a bust. I PM’d a bunch of people in this thread a while back and there wasn’t enough people. A bunch of people had backed out unless someone can convince Wade otherwise or wants to back the project upfront. Cough cough Ken

Yea, somebody has to step up and buy the 25 pf's up front and take the risk. I am just about to take delivery of 25 pf's from Wade for "Wizard" using this model. I presold 23 (2 hold back) with one on the waiting list. Anybody willing to bet $25K? Of course Wade is probably booked up for 8-12 months anyway.

Ken, when you commission Wade to do one of these projects, are you the one that's in charge of all the shipping and distribution?

Good to hear your Wizard project worked out that well sale wise. I absolutely see no reason why 25 Canada Dry resto packages wouldn't' sell out immediately if they were made available.

#163 10 months ago

I think they would sell if Wade sold them direct. Some people just don’t use Pinside to know about this idea.

Ken, I’m glad to see it’s finally moving forward. I’m kind of regretting selling you that game haha. I wish I could build one

What’s in Wade’s queue?

What’s in Wade’s queue?

bicyclenut is usually the keeper of the queue but Sing Along, Surfer/SurfChamp and one more I cant remember

Thanks, already have Sing Along. Would definitely be on the look for Surfer if it’s in the queue.

#168 10 months ago

I can't believe no one needs "Free Fall". He already did "Sky Jump".
More worn and planked playfields on those two titles than just about any others.
"Canada Dry" needs to be done just because of it's scarcity on this side of the pond. That, plus the fact that there are so many "Target Alpha" machines; many of which are worn, and would make excellent conversion candidates.
I'd be in for both of those two.

Anyone have an up-to-date list of how many people signed-up and how many more are needed? Would like to see this one get added to the queue.
