My growing collection of Double B Barbaras, threesome shown but casting more each day. Can do different fluorescent black light glow active colors but am limited in colors but can mix for different 2ndary colors but is hard to consistently get that same color. Using urethane elastomers in casting which provide vey high strength, impact resistant and wear resistance and is phthalate free, mercury free and MOCA free, non toxic and she can be put in your aquarium if needed. Original modeled then 3D printed then molded in silicone which gives her more detail and smoother body without having to use mold release to extract her after casting.

Maybe PPS will provide "insight", since it has been conjecture, but never proven, full rights are owned to this Capcom game for production.

#5 3 years ago

Besides the fact that that IP ownership has never been established, these are new toys, close to original but different in many ways. Not the same color, no identifying logos... They just happen to fit in the tube.

Heck, I think the boobs are even bigger

Right there not "exact" reproductions, obviously different in color and would be considered fan art! ...and her breasts are bigger for sure lol

Well done.

BB Barbara was remodeled from scratch and our original model was printed on a 3D printer and was made using our molds and was not cast from any original product. BB does not refer to any existing pinball machine and means Big Breasted Barbara. BB Barbara can be used anyway you like but has never been advertised to be sold in a pinball machine but if you like to do so that is your right. There is no similar product sold at this time by any company that I know of so it is not stopping or hampering any monies being obtained.
This toy also is not commercially advertised to be sold to the mass market. BB Barbara is a doll and non functioning action item and to make her dance a motor and rod can be retrofitted to make her move. If you want to help out the pinball community and let us help them obtain unobtainable parts it would be nice if you did not object or question the rights to us making these since we feel we can do so since no original was used in the making. The profit if any will be marginally or none and just a few of these will probably sent to other pinsiders who desperately cannot get this or any other items to keep their machines functioning properly or have memorabilia or a doll to make them happy.

BB Barbara has been sent to pinsiders who have not used her in a pin and this is how I use one of mine.

These things are multiplying like Tribbles help me get rid of them please. I leave them together in a box overnight and seems to be more the next morning. Also if you have ever seen the trucker look of the original I think Barbara is much cuter looking definitely.

Purple Barbaras hatching, wanted to show you all how these are reproduced and the casting call process. So much detail you can even see her navel. These will be cleaned to remove the extra material that overflows the mold after poring and clamping together but is necessary to make sure they are 100% filled.

In development Barbara the Desktop Model, just need to juice her up and need to find 12vdc adapter. That base was made in one day by Trevor the Mad Modder from Just3dmods. He can do pretty amazing stuff fast.

we still have a couple of dancers left and have the capability to make some more if anyone is interested. The remakes had no complaints that I have heard of so if interested let me know and I will post a picture of the ones still for sale.

Well according to Pinside it refers to Bone Busters Barbara. How Freudian...

Hi father of all Barbaras ...

I got a Barbara from a friend of mine. But the ladywill not put on her underwear .. any suggestion how to get her in the panties ??

#28 2 years ago

That looks like an original belt, you'll have to elongate (grind) the holes bigger at the top to get it on. If you don't, you'll for sure break the belt trying to get it on. Look at the belts in the picture above for reference.

#29 2 years ago

Yes, it is the original belt ... now I see the difference . Thank you !
However .. I made it my Barbara slipped in the belt, now trying to make a new
wire.
Thanks for the hint anyway !!

Can't help you there. When single I was always trying to get girls to do the opposite.

We sell repro belts for those dancers which we made but the belt should fit and we made the repros belts measuring them from an original and the repros fit so the original ones should too. Even our repro belts fit tight but both should fit. Just squeeze the upper thighs together and tightly as possible and work the belt up every so slightly and it should fit over the thighs and once over the thicker part of the thigh it will then fit easier on.

Never had a problem getting a woman INTO her panties.

I had this same issue. I had a bottle of Novus 1 handy and just sprayed a little on the dancer. It easily slid into place and I just wiped it off with a paper towel.

PM if you need any assistance.

If I get interest in remaking these for $200 each how many might be interested in ordering one or more?

The last known original sold for $400 plus and because of age may gum up and not work.
Try making one with good looking quality, functional, and that has durability and I will give you $200
Buy that pressure injection machine and cast a mold for 100k and make 30 to get rich!
I will even tell you what material to use and how to make them but you will need to get your own Barbara to cast and good luck with someone loaning out there dancer to you and you cannot cast an original and may destroy it in the process much harder than it looks since her details like mouth, ears and toes are really tiny and more are wasted than sold.
We have made and sold like 35 but we cringe ever time someone needs one because we hate making them but do so to help BBB owners get replacements for their broken dancers for their 12k and higher priced pin.

At least it gives an option. Odd these are so hard to source and are starting to disintegrate. I have a spare original but not sure how it would react if mine decides to crap out. After spending 15k for these whats 200 more? If they do reproduce BBB (which i don't believe they will) i think these will be more obtainable, but that's a huge IF.

I might be interested but only in fluorocent green like the original
I have installed a blue one from you, very nice and much better than no dancer but in blacklight it looks .... blue

We did use the smooth on fluorescent coloring shown here
https://www.smooth-on.com/product-line/ignite/#:~:text=Fluorescent%20Color%20Pigments%20Liquid%20fluorescent%20colorants%20compatible%20with,is%20maximized%20under%20ultra-violet%20light%20or%20%22black%20light.%22

so maybe we need to test that better thanks for the heads up first time I have heard of it not glowing

So maybe I will just wait till some more twist up then make a few more but for now I have none to sell and do not plan to make anymore.

They are rare, but come up on ebay once in awhile. Last two I bought were $100. So 200 may be ok.

If you have a spare original, coat it in vaseline and put it in a plastic bag in the dark. It will last a lon time

Or sell it for a fair price to me .... its the better idea.
The blue one is nice but missing the glow.
