I have a Bride of Pinbot playfield for sale.
This is a used playfield, which came out of the machine I worked on. Mylar across the central playfield and pop bumper areas has protected most of the art over the years. Often these areas get thrashed and leave the playfield looking like someone attacked it with sand paper 🙁
There are a lot of photos below to show the condition and I’ll be as critical as I can, running through the things that stand out to me as marks against the playfield. Some of you won’t care as the playfield condition will be way better than what you have and much cheaper than buying a repro. For others they are deal breakers. I’d rather have it all mentioned now though and you can decide if the playfield is for you 🙂
If my machine had not come with the extra playfield, I would have been more than happy to keep using this one.
There are some small wear patches, most notably:
– Close to the scoop entry.
– Left / right loops.
– Start of shuttle and heart beat ramp entries.
– Top of left return lane, just below the extra ball insert (this has been touched up by someone in the past).
– Right return lane, at the rear of the shuttle (also looks to have been touched up by someone in the past with a small mylar patch applied over the top).
– Red ring on lower and left pop bumper (the rest of the area is covered in mylar).
– The edges of the 500K insert on the right loop (the mylar stops just below it).
– Base of the green insert on the left loop (mylar stops just before this one too).
There is some mylar lift:
– Towards the entry of the heart beat ramp, but doesn’t look to have lifted much (if any) art.
– Some of the large and small wheel inserts have some mylar lift, but does not look to have damaged the insert and the insert is not risen.
– A couple of the 100K/50K/25K inserts – again does not look to have damaged the insert and the insert itself has not risen.
There is also some wood damage on the rear of the playfield around the pop bumper area. Doesn’t seem to affect the playfield or assemblies though.
The two pop bumper body screw holes on the lower pop bumper are larger than normal – so these should probably be filled (match sticks / skewers + glue – or similar to fill before screwing).
Sounds like a lot of negatives, but I’m being super critical. It is 28 years old after all and has held up well. I’ve included some photos to show how it looked in my machine to show how good it looks as a straight drop in. The playfield would be a good upgrade to a machine with a trashed playfield, or some touch up work and clear coat to have it looking like new again.
Price is $280AU + shipping.
