Quoted from Aurich:

Welp, just got two PMs claiming the last two Helen translites, looks like this run is sold out again. I try and pad with extras and people always seem to appear to take them. It's a good problem to have mind you, not complaining!

Great work should always be rewarded! ... Looking forward to receiving my kit.

I've started the pre-order list for run 3, PM me if you're interested.

She arrived today in the U.K.

#954 5 years ago

Great barton! Glad it made it okay.

So apparently some genius in the post office read Austria as Australia, and now I've got a package taking a long ass detour to Europe. Felling pretty crummy about that one, sucks because they're nothing I can do but let the process play out.

I installed the lighting kit for Helen last night that I purchased from Arcade Upkeep and it totally rocks. Really brings out the distinct colors and makes Helen pop. The bubbling lava is righteous. I am very pleased with the new look. Thank you!!

Awesome.

I think I'm gonna have some extras from this run, I increased it last minute one more time, I've just been keeping it quiet, they keep selling out too fast, makes me nervous to not have an extra or two in case something goes wrong. So I won't update the thread title again, but if you're still reading and want one I can probably hook you up.

Luci is in stock. I suspect this first run will probably go fast but I should have more early next week. You can find them here: http://www.pinballtoppers.com/STERN.html

Thanks

I was waiting for that post. Just got my order in for the clean Luci version. My wife would certainly draw the line against the naked boobs. Thanks Dave!

If it makes you feel any better my wife doesn't know I made a dirty version. She's only seen the clean. Lucky for me she doesn't ever browse my website.

My wife told me she was drawing the line at making a t-shirt out of Helen and wearing it around. I scrapped that for a different design, wanted to make up something fun for wearing to PAGG. See how it prints up in a couple weeks.

Got my speaker light kit! Thanks

I don't see any pics, so I don't believe you.

Just ordered!!... but I forgot the longer screws for my FF speakers. Would you mind tossing those in the box... I sent you a message via your website.

#967 5 years ago

Bubbling lava vs. one horizontal stripe of light? I'm in!

Quoted from ArcadeUpkeep:

Thanks, glad you like it! They're still available if anyone else is interested.

#968 5 years ago

Ordered both the speaker light kit (got clean and dirty) and the Arcade Upkeep back box kit. My AC/DC is going to be blinging for zapcon.

#969 5 years ago

I definitely want to see pics of the speaker lights installed.

So I'm down to my last translite, once someone grabs that this run is sold out, no more slipping in more, it's in production. Word from my printer is that they should ship to me next Tuesday. So I'll get them at the end of next week most likely, and I'll break down and ship out right away.

Edit: Soon as I posted this I got a PM taking the last one. If anyone flakes out I'll post what's available, otherwise just PM me if you want to be on a waiting list if I can do another run.

#970 5 years ago

Anyone that bought an ACDC Pro "Helen" playfield decal set want to trade? I prefer the close-up Helen on my playfield and would like a spare or two. Anyone prefer the zoomed out Helen or the Helen looking through the broken glass decal? I'll trade ya.

She's made it to Australia. Well traveled lady. Thanks for that.

#973 5 years ago

Looks like demand just hasn't died down like I thought, I'm well into starting a list for a third run. See if people keep popping up or not. Happy to keep doing them as long as people want them, and then let it die.

Awesome. Thanks! If all goes well I'll be ready to send you your package at the end of next week.

The red lightning bolts? Are those from hooked?

#979 5 years ago

Those are from pinbits. Hooked has the stainless steel, black, and red powdercoat versions.

Helen and Luci fans need to get these speaker panel inserts, I just installed mine and all I can say is pimp!

These pictures do no justice.

Seems they are sold out at the moment.

The panel lights look dark in the photos. I had them on orange to match some of the orange in the translite lettering but, changed it to fade as the other colors look really cool going from shadowing her silhouette with darker colors to bringing out her contrasting details with the brighter lights.

I got my speaker grills in today. Going to install them today or tomorrow. They do look sweet.

You should install them via 3d method guys.. This really makes them look fantastic.

I can see where that would add additional dimension to it and look visually cool, however I would be concerned that the acrylic could be more vulnerable without the grill backing it up. I can see mine possibly getting cracked when I remove the speaker panel. Either way, its a great mod for sure.

#988 5 years ago

Ok dumb question. The directions say to tap the power down in the cabinet. I also need to hook up my TRC mod here. Splitters are out of stock. Anywhere else to buy them?

#989 5 years ago

Hard to tell from the pics, but it think this?

12v / 5v power splitters should be added to pinballtoppers.com stock tonight.

UPDATE: IN STOCK! Ignore the "Out of Stock" and it will still let you add it to your cart. The "Out of Stock" will be fixed later this evening.

Helen translites shipped to me from the printer today, so once I have them I'll break down and send out to everyone who's paid up for the second run. I'd guess early next week, doubt I'll get it soon enough to make it out by Saturday, but if I do I will.

#993 5 years ago

Very excited I sent my payment yesterday! Now you can focus on Star Trek Premium

Kevin

#994 5 years ago

As I was just telling someone else who brought that up, I am working on Star Trek, just a little slow. I need to buy some airbrush paint to do the next stage, and I haven't had a chance to get it yet, maybe this weekend.

Got my Swap Box!

Looks great!
Did you made the Box yourself or purchased it?

#996 5 years ago

Helen and Lucy finally met!image-414.jpg

#997 5 years ago

Aurich, what's the count of Helen's out there. I'd love to know how many pins went Helen. I know I'm not going back to sweaty Angus.

It's over 100 now, but hard to say how much more life there is in it after this second run. I have a few people on a third run waiting list if I can drum up enough interest to reach the minimum I'll do it.

I purchased it. Not really hard to make yourself if you're inclined, be a fun project and I certainly have the tools and experience. What I lack right now is the free time, so was happy to pay someone else for the work.

#1000 5 years ago

still can't keep those apron sticker down. They seem to curl worse and worse as time goes on.
