    Matt wanted me to let everyone know he's working on these now. The pictures are pretty lame and truly don't do this thing justice, but it's all we have for now. I was at my buddy's house (he took the second pic) this afternoon to check it out and all I can say is, it's one of Matt's best!!

    The topper is the first molded plastic one Matt has ever done and the custom painting is even more than I expected from Matt. The detail is ridiculous. The light is a plasma light bar with an electric current that "dances" constantly from side to side. It is not just a static light. It's the perfect effect to go with the electric chair.

    Price is $189 plus $15 shipping in the US. You can Email Matt at [email protected] for more info or to be put on the list.

    Lastly, I will say this about Matt. I have no idea how many he'll make and no matter what Matt says, he has no idea how many he'll make. I call Matt one of those artsy, fartsy kind of guys. He'll make these until another cool idea comes up and then, that's it. Doesn't matter whether he can make money on them or not. So if you're interested, I'd check contact Matt now.

    Got nothing but the pics. Sorry. If I get more from Matt, I'll post it here.

    I really like the metal toppers that Matt makes - set him apart from the other guys.
    Wish it was the same metal like the ones before - I have OCD for consistency.

    Would like to see some video of it with the lighting effects.

    I like.

    I thought these images were copyright protected and enforced. Matt said on an earlier thread that he was told not to do this in threat of infringing on Metallica and Dirty D's material. Looks nice. Hope he do these without getting in trouble.

    This topper tops them all!

    He's missing a row of teeth. Also, his arms/hands are in a really odd position too. Besides those things, it looks pretty cool though.

    His tongue is missing too..

    Well I just figured he's giving a different facial expression, so the missing tongue is acceptable. The teeth just look off though.

    The subtle differences were probably to avoid copyright infringement.
