    Hi All,
    If you are a Creature owner or fan you realize one unavoidable fact. Sooner or later (if it hasn't already happened) the hologram will fail. I have done some research and hologram technology has come a long way. It is possible to make them to last a very long time. I have several request. The first one is a little odd but I am looking for any of the failed holograms. Something you don't care about and something we could take apart. I am also looking for working ones. Part of the process is to create a sculpture as similar to the original as possible. I have already found a company that does holograms commercially and am sure it is going to fly. We are now trying to develop the best replacements possible.

    There is a kit available to replace the motors. Contact thenaimis if you need details.

    I think he’s looking for the hologram, not the motor. Sounds like a promising endeavor! GL

    I am not. It also does not seem like this is on their radar anytime soon. My company specializes in restoration and we have had to resort to manufacturing many parts that just are not available commercially. We don't sell them as a separate thing. Strictly inhouse. We may do something similar with the holograms. Perhaps also selling rebuilt units that would require a "Core" to trade in. In the end we are dedicated to the preservation of pinball and it's history. We feel like part of it with 80 years of commercial presence in that world.
