Hi all,

New to the club.... In need of the tube ramp as mine is cracked on the game. I know this is a long shot....but anyone have a source for one? I know those who have one are likely not going to give it up. My next thought is to try to make one but my skills likely will make this a challenge even if I can find the acrylic tube.

#302 1 year ago
Quoted from Warzard:

IPB released a updated version of the software.
All the boards are the same but the one to handle the ramp light.: They changed the lamp voltage for the ramp.
They redisigned the main ramp which was way too big and not fitting properly into the cabinet.
Sum up: Both are the same pin but the one from IPB got issues fix so it’s closer to a production pin.
The real Capcom’s was a real proto with some flaws. (Fixed by IPB team)

I wish IPB had remastered some of the audio...
That screeching lady voice is too much.
But at the rate CCG is building games, I've given up on a remake.

I have the engineering drawing for it. Maybe its possible to 3D print.

#304 1 year ago

As several people know, I made my own BBBr.

For the tube I bought on eBay UK years ago a tube. It had exactly the dimensions from the original but *NOT* the millings on the top.
I "hide" this with some orange rings.

So search the net for this tube. You need US/UK standarts ! European standarts will not fit perfectly.

Great! I found a source for the tube and have ordered. Will try to make one. Great info and pics. Thank you. I think the reason mine cracked is the drop targets sent a ball straight up in to it.

#306 1 year ago

Please share the link; would love to have a passable backup!

Quoted from Dan1733:

I think I could reproduce it.
I might give it a try
If you want to share the engineering drawing, that would be very helpful.
With the drawing, I could probably laser it.
The top would be the difficult part, but I think that is only decorative
I don't think anyone would let me borrow their extra one.

I have a bulb out under the left lane guide...its the left most position of the 2. When I put another bulb in, it will flash VERY bright. Is this a 12 volt bulb?

#309 1 year ago
Quoted from insight75:

Yes. It's a flasher.

It’s a flasher, should be called out in the manual.

Quoted from jchristian11:

Thanks guys. There is a tag on the wire I found which indicates a different bulb number.

I'm getting a lamp error from the bulb that sits on the right side of the apron by the shooter lane. It indicates "unused". If I take out the bulb it goes away. Is this normal?

Yes, that is normal and is a bug. Someone fixed that with a rom revision years ago though.

Here is a link to the tubing I bought and received yesterday. Looks the same to my old eyes.

Got the new tube ramp cut. Came out pretty good overall. The cuts in the back were not great but can't be seen once installed so I'm happy with it.

Any source for the BBB stickers on top of the flippers?

Quoted from Pinhead1982:

TomDK it may have been me that sold you the NOS decals. Sorry they did not work out for you.
I’m very impressed that you have made a home made BBB. Does it use Capcom boards?
Anyway, sold the pins (2 JJP) as original deal to other people and paid cash for BBB.
So it’s back on.
[quoted image]

Does anyone know where these art blades came from? They look really cool to me and I haven't seen them on any other BBB.

Google told me , look here:

Remember ... no glow like the decals !!

#318 1 year ago

Gave up on simple internet searches years ago for this rare bird! Can't believe it was that easy; thank you for the help.

man that's a shame they didn't make a UV reactive version of these. that would be too cool.

Quoted from jake35:

UV colors are hardly to print. In screen print it is possible, in digital print you need a really good printer which is able to use special colors.
What you can do: If you are able to airbrush, there a UV luminent colors from revell available. You can spraypaint the tube areas and than bring on a foil to protect your work. This would be the easiest way.
Other good but complicated way .... scan the blades or redesign, print them on very thin PET-G , print them without the green and spray UV translucent green paint from the back. The paint is available in cans.

Anyone have an LED OCD board installed and can snap a pic of their backbox? I scored a used one and the instructions online don't include a pic of where this installs.

Edit: Ignore. I think I found what I'm looking for.

#322 1 year ago

I know this is a long-shot but would anyone be interested to part with their BBB for a NIB 007 LE?

#323 1 year ago

Or their BBB for a Bond 60th?

#324 1 year ago

Actually if anyone would sell or trade, please send me a message. Thank you.

BBB is a $35k game now. not sure why anyone would do that??

#327 1 year ago

Not sure its 35

But I'd add cash, and maybe dri would too

#328 1 year ago
Quoted from jake35:

It's not $35k worth of game, but yeah, I get your point. I'll show myself out.

#329 1 year ago
Quoted from dri:

Right. It’s worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The last one I’ve seen sold for 25k in an hour so maybe something is telling me the seller could have tested a little bit more the marcket.
Mine will never leave, not even for 40. Good luck with the search.

It would sell at $35k. The one you referenced was listed over a year ago, and they are worth more now. Here are the last three ads screenshot.

10/18/22 $33,333 The last one listed sold for this according to the seller and is registered sale on pinside.

9/23/2021 The you referenced that sold in 30 min for $25k (which in my opinion seller left money on the table). That was over a freaking year ago.

5/21/2021 $29,000, $1,000 OVER asking price of $28,000.

So yeah, 25k is too low, $35k is the range. Do I think a pinball is worth $35k? probably not, but go find one for cheap somewhere.

There are only a few of these that come up for sale and they are worth what someone is willing to pay. Its all about timing too on who may be interested once they go up for sale.

I thought 007 was going to be in a charity auction?

Exactly, recently passed on a nice one for $14k. I couldn't justify it considering the horrible lady audio. It's fine for a game or two but I'd hear it in my sleep as an owner. If they ever remake the game allowing easy repair and if they remaster the audio, I'm in!

You passed at 14k ? Seriously? Let me know your plan, i could get it for my second house lol. I haven’t seen this price for this pin for a while.
You can deactivate the lady by activating family mode in the menu FYI.

You can deactivate the yelling marge-simpson callouts!? Really!? OMG.
In hindsight, I wish I had bought it so I could presumably flip it here.
BBB is a cool game, but you guys are nuts.

This is not a sale thread, you are posting on the BBB owners, so yeai people here like the BBB.
Some people got it for cheap at their release, some (like me) got it with a trade and others bought for more money and even some build their own BBB from scratch !. This is a rare pin and the community is small.

My bad. I confused this thread with other about possible Chicago Gaming remake.

Yeah, it's supposed to be about a remake, but I guess that ship has sailed.

#339 1 year ago

Its been on a very short list for remakes by Chicago Gaming (TOM, TOTAN, BBB). I'm surprised it wasn't before Cactus Canyon.

I personally don't think the game will ever be remade, but that horse has been beaten to death. The enthusiasts would buy it, but outside of the die hard pinballers it wouldn't go over well on location i don't believe (too adult in nature). I think CC was a safer bet, Totan etc.

I agree completely. To me its about the art and adult theme which make it desirable to me. Not everyone would agree.

BBB remake would sell a ton! Home AND on location. They will see!....hope it's soon....

This is a good point. We don’t allow club threads for unshipped games on Pinside any longer anyway and BBB has no official club thread.

Someone needs to start an official club thread and we can abandon this one entirely as it is inconsistent with the current site rules that club threads can only be for games that have shipped. I nominate jake35 to start the official club thread.
