Hey guys, I wanted to post here in this thread about a project I was helping out with that is Alien related. I recently met Brian Allen, one of the artists that did some work on Alien during the fiasco at Heighway. Like Aurich, Brian is a super nice guy and had some really cool looking art that never really made it to production or not in the form that was intended from what I understand. I had reached out to Brian because I liked one of the pieces that he had drawn for the game that was at some point an option for the back-glass on games without monitors. At first I just wanted to create some art for my wall that might be able to go into a light box, but now that I have it, Brian is fine with me helping him offer it to the community. Instead of just creating a translite, I have had the art reverse printed on acrylic for a much higher end look than a translite. (think of how Cirqus Voltaire back-glass is made...its acrylic or some type of plastic) These are available for order through Brian's website (https://www.flylanddesigns.com) as well as directly through me. I am planning on bringing a set amount of these to the Texas Pinball Festival for those that would like to cash and carry and save on shipping, but I am trying to get a rough idea on those that would like one. These are about 26" x26" and look amazing in a light box. I am going to attach a few pics as well as a sample video I did for Brian of mine in a light box I built. Feel free to reach out via pm if you would like one to pick up or would like one shipped. The price point on these is $200.00 picked up or 235.00 shipped due to size and packing costs. Let me know what ya'll think!
Hey guys and gals...just wanted to let everyone know that along with the Alien artwork that Brian Allen did that we are also debuting at TPF an alternate tribute backglass that he created. This too is reverse printed to acrylic and really explodes with color and detail when lit. We are only doing a run of 125 of these that will each be numbered and will also come with a certificate of authenticity as well. These are sized so that they can be actually used in a game to replace the translite and glass. I’ll be set up at the Backalley Creations booth with Matt as he and I will be introducing another unique and exciting product this weekend at TPF! I will have a display light box of each for viewing to show how they look lit. I will have a few dozen of these on hand at the festival as well as a handful of Alien glasses, so drop by and say hi. These limited run backglasses will be 225.00. PM me if you want your name tagged on one before you get there.

They will all be given out in person and shipped in a large thick foam pouch for protection, but if you don't feel good about that, we are also shipping them out to some that have already ordered them Thanks!
