Quoted from Concretehardt:

Mine is the docquest projector (I think) and it does the same thing on my LE.

That's because the LE comes with the required node boards in the topper to activate my version of the signal interactively during game play.

If you want the signal to be interactive with gameplay and you have a premium game, you need the official Stern batsignal accessory since it comes with the required node boards.

My signal with a premium is configured to come on when ever the game is turned on. You could also wire it so it comes on with a flasher or insert or your choice. Unfortunately there isnt a single flasher or insert that comes on at all the same times as the Stern version with its node boards.

??? Details..?. I like that!!

Can someone help me understand when to use the penguin crane motor lag adjustment? I have noticed that sometimes the penguin crane doesn't stop in the correct spot. Usually this is in the 1st or 2nd position from the resting spot on the right.

In your case this is when the Lag adjustment will help. Try setting it to Zero and power cycle the game. It should help with centering the crane over each target.

Hi Guys,

I might be joining the club, it's between 2 machines and Batman66 is one. I am a mod addict. lol

What are the top 5 mods you guys love?? I see the vehicles on a few sites look pretty cool. Helicopter, Motorcycle, Boat.

No need to add shaker, blades, bat signal topper or shooter rod as I found one I love.

Thanks for the input.

Have a great day.

Thats the wrong Joker anyways...you wouldn't want that one. Has to be a 1966 Cesar Romero of some sort.

#14919 20 days ago

I guess you could have your ramp power coated. Anyone done this before? Does it hold up?

#14920 20 days ago

Anyone get their Metzel crane mod to stay on under the crane? Mine always falls off after a while and I tried several different double sided tapes. I think one I tried was supposed to hold 20lbs.

Mine has never fallen, but you can try a dab (not a shitload lol) of hot glue on the two ends. If you have an adjustable glue gun lower the temp to the mid 200's.

I liked the movie for what it was but you cant really compare it to the 66 batman as they are so different from what they were going for. Looking forward to what direction they take with the sequel.

I appreciate all the various film and TV versions of Batman but Adam West is my favorite. He is "my" Batman as was my first exposure to the character.

Same idea with other multi-generational fictional characters. Take James Bond for example, Roger Moore was my first and favorite Bond. People older than me tend to like Sean Connery more while younger folks tend to prefer Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig. Unfortunately no one seems to like poor Timothy Dalton.

Adam West and Burt Ward are the real and only Batman and Robin, as far as I’m concerned. All others are just imposters. Lol

He was terrible...I am a huge fan but jeez.

We can always say George was better.

Seems I will need some mods from you soon.

Look for Burt in the CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths TV event in a few weeks. Not sure if he'll be playing an older Dick Grayson or not. Set photos show him wearing Robin themed colors and possibly waking "Ace the Bat-Hound".

If he is playing Dick Grayson it could be one of the longest spans of time for an actor playing the same character, 1966 to 2019 = 53 years. Only other one I could think if that comes close was Leonard Nimoy as Spock. Production of the StarTrek pilot " The Cage" in 1964 to StarTrek Into Darknedd 2013 = 49 years.

If he’s playing an older Dick Grayson, he’ll certainly be playing a much larger Dick Grayson

Will be cool to see him back on screen again.

To bad Adam isnt around to join him, it would have been a cool cameo to see them together as the original dynamic duo interacting with the other characters in the modern DC TV universe. Looks they got Kevin Conroy (voice of Batman from the animated series and many animated batman films and video games) portraying the live action older batman.

I Just bought mY Batman66 2 weeks ago. I searched hard for this. Its got the most detail. When people talk about eaglemoss, This is the one I believe they are referring to.
I Have not had a chance to mount yet but it will go over the shooter llane with the Modcouple mod that goes over lane. I put a quarter in the picture so you can get a sense of the size!

Shipped $28

#14929 19 days ago

This is way too big to mount in the PF, but could be used as a topper, although if I could find an original LE Bat topper, I’d be all over it.

Had to look hard to find this. It is a Super Elite Hot Wheels Batmobile that is extremely detailed. The seats are leather and the full engine is there, when you open the hood. The bat computer in the trunk, with steering wheel turning real tires. This thing sells now for over a grand if you can find one. Limited edition: only sold a few hundred worldwide. Everything is full metal or leather on it. No plastic brings it down. Lol

Always fun to jump back in this thread every now and then...The game is such a blast, and great to see so many more in the club.

The custom left wire form and ramp ( w no wiretie hole) never got produced in #`s sadly. Many posts in here going through my efforts... I managed to get one made, but that was it.

Someday I'll dig up all my notes, extra pic's, etc. and put it in a file if someone has the ability to make these.

#14931 19 days ago

Hi All,

Newbie to the club. Would it be a good idea to open a thread just for Batman 66 mods. It can be from the small guy doing one mod to medium level folks and all the way up to the big boys?

It took me 6 hours looking for MODS. LOL.

Would be a great spot and easy to find no matter what you are looking for.

ALL things MODS for Batman 66...

I spent hours just bouncing around inside pinside for powder coating guys...they could just post in this thread and not have 3000 pages to go thru.

Stooopid Idea or Good Idea?

Love this group/club , cant wait to get rolling soon.

#14932 19 days ago

Pretty much all the mods have been covered at great length in this thread. Not sure a new thread would help. I believe there is even a key post tagged in this thread.

#14933 19 days ago

I sometimes view this thread in the image gallery. Then quickly scroll through the images to the mod I'm looking for then read the thread from there.

Quoted from bicyclenut:

Installed a Stern Blue SLE ramp in my game last night....WOW! it is super fast now. I wonder if its because its NEW or if it's because it's painted? Either way...I like it.[quoted image]

Actually, because it's blue. Studies have shown that wireforms on the cooler end of the color spectrum perform noticeably faster. Less aesthetically induced thermal friction.

Hi All,

Any idea where I can get a decent topper for BM66 Prem? Am I late to the party for something cool? Maybe someone might be selling on...never know

Thanks.

The Pre topper is...ok. The LE/SLE topper is epic. So far it has been reproduced by at least one modder here but not offered for sale. Another may be working on one that is similar. I'd just wait and see what happens, unless you really have to get a topper right now.

Pre-Topper? sorry still a newbie in PIN.

Can I have the names of the guy who did it and ask if he would sell or make another?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, there is a Pre topper but I don't know if there are any out there now. The LE topper is a wait and see game for someone to make one. Might happen, might not. They are too difficult to make for just a few.

Okay....I did see a LED one with some characters and a city background on a base . That would be better than nothing up there.

#14943 18 days ago

The Stern Villain (Premium accessory) topper and the Stern Bat-signal projector topper are not available anywhere that I have found. Maybe a couple distros have backstock they haven't listed yet.

This is the Villain one they sold as an accessory

Yeah I am late as I said to the party. Thanks for showing me. I saw a mod of the bat signal that goes on the backboard behind the game. That and this topper together would be cool.

Oh well.........maybe at the next show/expo someone might be selling something fun.

#14945 18 days ago

I'll say it til I'm blue in the face. Why Stern didnt make more toppers for this game after additional runs on the line is beyond me. Talk about leaving money on the table.

Yeah big time..they are wayyyyyyyyyy behind on the amber shooter rod for my JP . Crank out 1000 and they all would be sold.

#14947 18 days ago

Mezel Mods has a decent topper. I think the license is so tight that no one wants to attempt to produce any aftermarket toppers with '66 characters.

#14948 18 days ago

Yeah saw that one just doesn't jump out after seeing the original one. I did see the plastic one with the city in the background and leds...not bad ..might have to settle for that.

Thanks for posting that one.

The hunt continues.

#14949 18 days ago

Have you seen this one?

#14950 18 days ago

Laseriffic does amazing toppers. They did have a Batman 66 topper in development but it was never produced.
