putting together a list to gauge the interest in doing this. i know not many have the game but there are quite a few NOS back glasses floating around. the plastics have been already done by the good folks down under. the are more than enough target alpha around to convert. when talking to wade he seamed very interested in doing this since i found a NOS pf and have a NOS bg if interest is there. even as a wall hanger the pf is a piece of work. IMO one of the best art packages from the 70's em era.

for your viewing pleasure..... note that it does have some wood damage under the apron area but the art work is great one flaw by the same player shoots again insert.
i would need to send it to wade if we get enough interest ...

Thanks for sharing that pic Dave. I love the way they Faithfully replicate it. The soda bottles. Right down to the French translation of the flavors! $7,500 for a decent one gives me pause to think about this as a project. Has PBR reproduced the drop targets? Pop bumper caps?

PBR has the drops, cap are just common red/white circle

$7500 is the asking price. What/If it actually sells at is the real question.

I’ll go for a playfield if Wade makes them. I don’t really need one, but the art is just too good to not get in on this. Great game, to play and to admire.

Put me down for one. It should go without saying.

#11 30 days ago

Love the artwork

#12 30 days ago

I'd take one

#13 30 days ago

Add me to the list, if nothing else happy to support Wade, he is a huge asset to the hobby and I can't wait for my Strange World playfield from him.

How much are these going to be selling for? I have a Solar City and might consider a conversion

In guessing you'd have to get a four player head?

even that would not work. the bottom board is slightly different. target alpha will be the only option.

Oh, gotcha

They're usually around $740 shipped if memory serves me right.

#22 30 days ago

Put me down for one.

#23 30 days ago

This would be very cool. I have a great Target Alpha sitting around and would love to do this.

Saw everything else for the conversation except for playfield and backglass.

Who the heck has a backglass? If I could find one then I would be in as well.

“eric-antoine” on pinball owners has a populated playfield but it’s located in France if you really wanted to go all out and original. It’s listed as “maybe” for sale.

#25 29 days ago

Please add me to the list too.

#26 28 days ago

only 11 to go.... list is kept in the first post of this thread

It would be great if we could submit our sanded smooth "Target Alpha" playfields for screening. They would probably come out looking more authentic, and would probably save money as well.
I understand the way Wade does it, this wouldn't work because he screens first, then does the CNC milling. I wonder if anyone else has the capability to do this if given a high quality scan of the existing original. Wade seems to have a lot of irons in the fire already.

#28 28 days ago

talked to wade again and stated that a lot of interest if they could find a backglass.
wade is willing to do the backglass and playfield with a combo price 1100
that is 700 PF 300 bg 100 to ship both
lets see if this changes things

Thanks to Boilerman for making this happen!

Was trying to move my TA, but if it doesn't sell by the end of the year, will consider this fantastic offer!

#31 27 days ago

Price pending I may be interested.

I talked Donal Murphy into making the drop targets years ago when I finally got my game. He said there was no demand for them and I said "I'd buy two sets if that helps?" I guess it did because after that he did reproduce them. I do remember at that time there was a couple of the hot stamped letters he didn't have so I had to use a few of my old targets. Lots of Novus and some red paint and you couldn't tell the difference.

I'd be in for a backglass too

#39 22 days ago

After much deliberation....I am in for a playfield and backglass.
