when they closed, what happened to all their manufacturing equipment? did it get sold or is it still sitting in the closed factory. the repro threads made me think of this. everyone that owns a paragon would like to see a repro playfield.

It will take more than simply tools to remake this stuff. Or other facitities would have been making more. Money is waiting so I assume it is a matter of cost vs production run. Or licensing.

Excellent question though as I am sure they had tons of cool stuff.

They're still very involved in the gaming industry. Perhaps they use these facilities and equipment to manufacture their slot machines and other gaming equipment?

Didn't IPB end up with a lot of it, and now PPS?

PPS did discover quite a bit of original art for the playfields. Expect they are still sorting through it, but the good news is that for what they do find the art for, playfield reproduction would be greatly simplified.
