Purple Lane Guides

Postby Chris Silver » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:08 pm

Guys, I need purple lane guides and can't find them anywhere. is it possible nobody reproduces them? marco doesn't have any either.

I need 7 for my Stellar Wars. If anyone has any )and I can get enough to replenish my playfield) I'm willing to replace them with brand new colour of your choice.

Not those ones. Those are old school.

You never know how much you want something until you just can't get it. LOL

Here you go... http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball ... 03-8318-10

Says "blue translucent double". But here is what it looks like:

... and this is the standard blue:

So, the first one is on the purple side... Not exactly the same shape as the one with the "diamond" on top, but these look way more sturdy. Besides, the old diamond style is only available in light blue, and even that is out of stock.

And for the record, stop being so goddamn anal about a plastic part on a Stellar Wars. ROTFLMAO. If some people are OK to spend thousands pimping out a NIB game, I think the pinball community won't think any less of you if you change the lane guides to something else. LOL. And nor will I ask you to change the lane guides if I buy the damn thing one day...

A lot of the sides are broken off on mine so as the ball goes down the lanes, it's like a hotdog in a hallway or a cheap Taiwanese hooker. This affects my gameplay drastically and I need to fix it especially if it eventually goes to Sparky.

Below in the YouTube video you will see the originals are purple and the guy replaced his broken Lane top centre with a blue one.

As for the flyer, I mentioned it was for the flyer only and I believe just so you can definitively see it better for the promotional picture.

In the end I figure if I do find some old stock they will probably be brittle and break at some point in the near enough future.

... Haven't you figured out by now that I like broken shit? I LOVE fixing things. Seriously... Leave them.

Thanks guys. :D

Never thought of looking up the word Violet. It's like going for cyan, teal or mauve. They're not your typical colours in the male rainbow. Lol

Thank you very much. I have a large order to place in the near future, but for now I'll take nine of these. The thing is I'm not sure when I'll be making it to the fish store in the near future.
