JM desperately needs an Alternate Translite

What it needs is a mirrored backglass, featuring Molly with her mirrored eyes.

I don't have a source for printing those though.

Was looking for Congo ideas... Here's something I've never seen... How come no one is modding Congo toys for the play field? Adding LEDs to the figures eyes or guns?

I actually did this when I had my Congo. I mounted the ape figure right above his targets above the mystery scoop in the center of the playfield. I am not one for action figures on playfields and alt. translites, but it looked really good in this case. I took it off when I sold the game and I still have the figure if someone wants to try it. This was the figure I used. You can pose him to look just like the picture on the playfield too...

I would be in for an Alt. trans if someone puts one together.

Those Kenner action figures are uber-cheesy, and too small IMHO. What I do like are the animals you can buy at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. The hippo and gorilla are perfect in the game.

I had to thumbs-down the chick's bare ass...I'm just tired of seeing that picture and the horrible stripper translite in every single Congo thread. Congo is a family-friendly adventure game.

Ya, the Madrid trans

I used this and installed a flasher in his belly, I think it fits well. Also notice the "diamonds" they are hooked to flashers also.

It would simply be other wordly if you started doing mirrored translights.

You are right, you've already shot down doctor who once, but just because gary stern kept saying no more iron man machines would be made did not stop the masses from requesting them.

I'd love to do real mirrored backglasses. I need to find a printer who can handle them and work out what it would take to do them right. Shipping glass though, ugh, makes me nervous just thinking about it!

Matrix?

That would be awesome but I would settle for something hand drawn on a napkin instead of the Factory trans. If I only knew someone with a Matrix Translite

Nothing yet! Working on the Metallica project I abandoned when I got sucked into the hammer mod. It's better for it, I kinda erased what I had and started clean, was good to see it with fresh eyes.
