I found a neat topper that I liked and wanted to build a similar one - and this gentleman was
gracious in helping me by telling me (as best he could remember) what pieces he procured.
He was most helpful (thanks Ben!)

However, one main problem I had was how to hook it up to the Frank flasher(s) in the new re-make,
I contacted CGC and they were pretty adamant about not tapping in - it may void the warranty, fry some light circuit etc...

So I found Chris (Rock Custom Pinball) and ended up buying his Game On system. The light sensor
is very active and quick to respond (using a flashlight to wave back and forth over the sensor) - see this:

so I found a Frank head -painted it / bought some glass bulbs and Led's

I ended up snaking the wiring up into the purple globe (I think it's purple anyway - I'm colorblind lol)
and curling it around the flasher there. I think it worked out pretty good! Chris was most helpful in answering all my questions
and it was a good learning experience.
Although I still have a bit more to add (some LED strip) - for the most part it's done.
see it here:

sorry for the jumpy camera work - It was with my phone with one hand. - had to set it up for right before activating the Frank mode
Ended up a bit more costly (around $150 total) but I think it's great

Thanks to Ben and Chris - you guys Rock!

I saw that on YT some time ago and even posted in the MBR thread about it. Would you mind listing your parts and how you did I think a lot of us would like to do this as a topper instead of waiting on the LE to ship.

The game.on system from Chris is really a nice setup. We are using it now for our Disco ball mod, both for MBR and Deadpool pro.

That is Awesome! This is exactly what I was hoping to see with the Game On System. People like you doing some creative things. Thanks for posting, very nice work. Happy I was able to help a little.
