Thought I'd share a couple pictures of the Iron Maiden topper I made and installed.

Nice ! I hope Stern will make a real nice interactive Topper

Thanks. I figure this is cheaper than anything Stern will make. I've got about $65 in this topper and an hour of work.

Hi there, I'd love to buy a topper from you if you'd be willing to make another. Please let me know

Could you detail how you made this as far as the materials under the mask (head and eye lights) and connection to the game to power the eyes?

Here is my recollection: The mask was bought on eBay. I then got a styrofoam mannequin head and small block of wood from Hobby Lobby. I used a knife to carve out the eyes about 3/4". The head and wood were painted black. I used three large drywall screws (3-4") through the bottom of the wood block and pushed the styrofoam mannequin head down on to the screws to the wood.

I wired the eyes using two 555 wedge sockets. I wired them in series and used two 6V LEDs in the sockets. I ran the wires to a +12V connector on the power supply board that was open (I think it was a 3 pin connector?).

I drilled a hole in the back of the wood block and ran a bolt through it. On Iron Maiden, I removed a knockout hole on the top of the head and inserted the wood block with the bolt and used a few washers and a nut to attach to the game.

The mask was slid over the mannequin head and I used a pin through the mask into the mannequin head to secure it.
