Hi all - love to be in this club, Royal Rumble is one of my favorite machines oooooohhhh Yea!!
Here is my machine with the LED's done, I also have the original Topper and prototype translite framed beside it
Does anyone know what the headbox and front artwork looked like on that original version?
I Might be able to get artwork done if so
I'm going to need more photo's if I am to get it done.
The side are is fine as I can get it done identical both sides and just adjust the height of the stars. If you look at the words Royal Rumble" it'll have to have the "E" of rumble closer to the front on one side & then "R" in Royal closer on the other.
I can then either match the current artwork on the front & Headbox with a blue background (which I'd rather not do) or find out somehow what matches the Proto artwork
Or do a combo of the 2
I have stripped and cleaned my RR and when putting back together, this plastic does not have a home.
Anyone know where he goes?
I also now have a problem that the VUK doesn't recognise the ball until ball search and on testing, the VUK works but keeps popping out the plastic shaft onto the playfield!
I'll be taking a color DMD out of Roadshow to put in this. Randy at color DMD told me about 2 months ago this was coming so I've been prepared lol
Am trying to install a color DMD into my Rumble, anyone else tried? Because Rumble has a 2nd board the LCD DMD doesn't fit unless I cut some of the speaker panel. Any suggestions apart from buying the LED which is the same size?
Quoted from enjoyvelvet:
Didnt have any issues with my LED version except I had to remove the 5th screw on the bottom middle for the LED display to fit. You should be able to remove the original display, install the new display and mount the little board to the other side of the display mount holes with the included plastic clips. Refer to the instructions on their site.
Yes but I have an LCD which is larger
Quoted from enjoyvelvet:
Is removing the upper ramp a pretty easy process? Has anyone documented it? Just wanted to double check before my new ramp comes. Probably won't install it right away (mine is in good shape) but it would be nice to know if there are any tips!
I used this thread to help me remove mine
Quoted from phillymadison:
Yea these look really nice! But no drop target Plastic for under the coffin? Mines chipped I would think this one would be needed for most.
For me it’s the plastic on top of the captive ball. I’d be interested in a set. Let’s see how many more are in for a set
Quoted from maffewl:
Hey all. Update on the plastics that I've been working on.
I have the colors as dialed-in as I could get them. Attached are some photos of them installed on the machine that I'm restoring. Of note, there are several customizations.
Slings: Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels
Inlanes: Royal Rumble Logo
Plastic near Extra Ball scoop: Reversed yellow/red to align better w/ playfield
Upper PF: Made plastic into one piece and gave the "scoop" an overhang for better appearance
Center Ramp: Changed green outline to red
Left Ramp: Created a Banzai related background
Back plastic: Changed "Let's Rumble" to "Royal Rumble" and added WWF logos
TAG plastics: Added yellow halftone fade
I also created the standard sling and inlane plastics, but I liked the custom ones better. So, that's what I installed.
In some of the pictures, the protective film is still on the plastic (such as IMG_4132, the standard left sling still has the protective film on it, as well as the back plastic with "Royal Rumble"). If any look cloudy, that's what it is - the film is still on as I haven't needed to remove yet. These are (digitally) printed on PETG and laser-cut. The colors are as close as I could get them in trying to go from a screened pigment paint to a digital print.
I've included an image that shows what plastics have been created. Those in solid white are the clear plastics used on the playfield. The only clear plastic missing is the one that goes on top of the pop-bumper. However, it is designed and ready to be cut.
All that to say, I'll be creating a Market ad soon for those interested. I just thought I'd post a teaser here first.
Long post, but thanks for hanging in there and for all the interest!

I am 100% in to buy a set, let us know when you’re ready to sell!
That fantastic! I just finished having all my WWF metal parts powdercoated black but now I’m thinking I might have to redo in dark blue to match this artwork. Thoughts?
Can anyone tell me which is the correct leg type for this machine? Is it the smooth one or the one with the groove in it?
Damn, what are the smooth ones from I wonder?
About to restore mine in blue to match the prototype decals
Nice yellow BTW
Well my Royal Rumble restoration in blue has started! Applied the Retro Refurbs decals and painted the cabinet blue to match. Note for those considering, the decals are a difficult fit as the artwork is too big on all sides in comparison to the original prototype. Notice how the Rumble text just fits but Hogan’s head and fist will be cut off by the rails
