Thats a pretty awesome topper! Much better than the crap that Stern puts out IMO. I leave mine the way I get them. So no toppers here.

Should post the one I just ripped of my tmnt le. Apologies guys, but diy toppers are tacky. A lot of the aftermarket ones are just as tacky. Not everything needs some toys slapped ontop with random leds.

So far, waiting on some small orange cones and construction signs.

Here is the MBr topper I made, it's a video and the topper is interactive, give it 20 seconds to start.

Had this Rob Zombie 18” doll sitting on top of my RZ (attached with Velcro). Pretty low key but I loved it, he would just stare at the player and he’s realistic enough to be creepy AF. Wish I had a better photo, RZ is long gone

Both of the above are interactive with the game.

This one is simple and does not interact with the game.

My take on a Roadshow topper. Had the lights synched to certain sound calls through Pinsound.

A little crowded, but for less than a tenth of the cost of an official Stern topper.

I finished my Gofers topper.

I made this for my South Park, the characters are tied to their playfield lights and flashers.

This was before I added Chef, it took me forever to find that one at a reasonable price.

As I work on restoring my Gottlieb Spring Break, I am tapping into the wires for the scoring multiplier for a possible topper. They light up as the multiplier builds, but also have a chasing effect in attract, as well as when you shoot the left ramp. I might even take these inputs and pull them into an Arduino to drive a LED matrix with some basic animations like I've done previously with another project where I made a sign for my home arcade.
