WTB: Star Light Playfield $1000

Added: November 24th, 2017 Ended: January 30th, 2018

Item description

A rare title deserves a full restoration. Took me a few years to find the game and I can tell already that it deserves the full treatment. I also have never restored this era of game yet, so I am excited to do a new restoration era.

I have cash, trades, and a willingness to provide old core post swap as part of the deal.

Please contact me if you have a Star Light pf hanging on the wall that you would like to see in a game and full restoration instead. I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance for anyone that can help. Please also put the word out to others as casting a wider net is usually the way to find a part like this for a rare game.

Bump for crazy people with crazy parts.

#3 1 year ago

Good luck in your quest! I hope you document the process, I'm looking forward to it.

I would be happy to do a resoration thread on it if i can find the playfield to use.
Fingers crossed that one will pop up somewhere.

#5 1 year ago

Curious, has anyone eve seen a spare pf for this game?

#6 1 year ago

probably a lot of them were parted out to save better games from the same time period.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

That is my hope! With only 100 games ever made, i have to wonder if there are extra pfs floating around.

DO you know the background story on why only 100 were made Neo?

#8 1 year ago

because the game is boring as all shit and very uneventful and did not do well in the test market?

Lol, well i love it. Great and challenging layout with tight shots, fun roll overs, and agreat 2 ball multiball.

Also, some great art.

I think i read something about space shuttle being a clear wnner so they halted sta light and full steam ahead on shuttle?

#10 1 year ago

Also, Neo have you ever worked on a starlight pf before?

Any issues with clear coating with so many star rollovers so promient in the middle of the pf?

#11 1 year ago

nah, star inserts are not different than anything else. I have star blanks that I use to clog them up when spraying. Pretty much the same as all other games.

I DO like playing Jays starlight thou, with the teeter totter flippers. I love those flippers.

You'd be better off stripping yours and sending it out for restoration.

Yeah, I was hoping to do the hot swap if possible. I prefer to not have the game down for as long as the pf restore would take to be completed and cure off.

#16 1 year ago

just gonna keep bumping...

#17 1 year ago

wow, that's more than the whole game is worth.

Lol.

I will pay extra just to amass a collection of games that make the neo most hated titles.

Ft, xfiles, sf2, and now star light.

#20 1 year ago

You've got to get the scissor me timbers flipper bats for this game .

And then have him restore them. That's where the real torture will be. ☺

least if I restore them, i'm not forced to play them. Those games are much better in pieces.

#25 1 year ago

the best alternate flipper design ever!

#26 1 year ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

You mean these?

those make this game actually fun. Best flippers ever. It's like giving the game D&D outlanes combined with the flippers. Brilliant.

Never seen those before...maybe you could post a video for us, I love seeing unique stuff.

#28 1 year ago

Just picture this.

when flipped up. The back side moves down and rests against the apron. So a ball on the outside rolls back on the flipper and can be flipped up again. If you are talented, you can keep the ball in the center by flipping and unflipping, keeping the ball rolling about center.

#29 1 year ago

I don't know man. If you are asking someone to sell you a NOS Star Light play field for a grand, you will never find one. I think you would have to pay a LOT more than that for one. I mean, I would. Now, if you want one that has been restored, a grand may be possible.

Yeah, just tossing out a number so people know I am seriously looking. I figure someone with a NOS Star Light will be comfortable either PMing to tell me a price, or open the communication for what they are looking for (I have potential trades also).

I also am fine with a used pf in resotable condition.

Price varies on condition, seller, and buyer. I am sure if someone has a pf, then we can work out something to make us both happy.

bump for star light pf or some siccorsmetimbers bats...

#33 1 year ago

bump.

Anyone ever seen a spare star light pf at all?

#34 1 year ago

Are you really expecting someone to contact you that has a spare one in a day or two? You must not have been doing this very long. It may take you 10 years to find one.

It will be a LOT easier to find and buy another complete machine.

nope, just keeping the iron hot.

I have been doing it long enough to know that sometimes things just pop up and other times they cant be found. I know you never find anything if you dont cast out a wide net and have some decent bait.

I also have had good success in short time before when looking to find rare parts via pinside. I have rare parts/games to trade and understand how it all works in the world of collecting rare titles reasonably well.

Maybe I am reading this wrong, but you seem to be pretty frustrated that I am even looking and I cant quite understand why.

The definition for "frustrated" is not equivalent to posting impossible $1000 want ads on Pinside.

Quoted from snyper2099:

I guess we can agree to disagree on the impossibility.

The current owner of the playfield and myself will be able to work out the details on the price. As I noted before, $1k is plenty to let someone know I am serious and willing to pay a fair rate based on condition.

I think more of these were parted out than you think. If it was a fun game, I could see a parts fields being impossible to find, but in this case, it's slightly more fun than Cue.

I really enjoyed mine. Fast, great 80's sound card, epic light show & trippy artwork

Awesome examaple! Would love to hear the story of when, how, where you got it and when, where, why you sold it?

#44 1 year ago

About 2 years ago I answered a Craigslist post and drove up to Sebago Lake ME ready to buy a Black Hole. As I drove in to the "compound" I realized something was off. There were multiple storage containers filled with hundreds of piano organs and EM pinball machines. I was quickly and sternly told those were all off limits. So we just walked into the house and bam! ...I'm on the set of "Hoarders".
None of his 20 (inside) machines worked. At the same time I realized the BH was a beater I noticed an odd title: Star Light. Offered him $850 for it. He accepted only after much emotion of letting something actually leave the house. We (4) each grabbed a leg and lifted it in the air to get it over his piles of "collectibles". After some simple adjustments and tweaking she came alive and my son and I played the crap out of it for a year. Realizing its rarity, I listed it for 3k and it quickly sold in the mid 2's

Honestly the more I keep thinking about it the more it seems like I have seen one but I don't know where or when or what???

I think it's a lot of fun too and Phoebe's Star Light is the bomb!

#47 1 year ago

I think you need somebody to do a playfield scan and work up from there.

that it is. Once you get the hang of them, they are a blast to use. But only would work on certain games.
