Does anyone have the Cyclops and light assembly for Elvira ATPM?
Just got one and it is missing.
Thanks

Made my own using some lexan and decal paper using my broken one as a template. You'll have to edit a bit in MS Paint to get it right.
I believe that Cyclops eye is wired with the light in the skull. Just buy the 555 socket and get a red bulb rubber to go over it. Not sure how you would mount that,but the original has a couple of screws going through to the light mount.
You'll need to rivet (or screws)a couple of L brackets at the feet to mount him on the two posts at the ramp entrance.
This is of course if you can't find one,but you will have the satisfaction of enjoying the fruits of your labor when your done.

My entire assembly was also missing. The lamp board attached to the Cyclops is not available anywhere that I know of. At least it wasn't last summer when I searched. You'll have have make your own, that is what I did. Found a used 5-lamp circuit board with the 555 twist sockets, cut it to fit the back of the Cyclops plastic, soldered the 2 wires to the board and mounted it on the back of the plastic and threw a orange 555 bulb in there and done. Worked great. You locate the wires needed from the Skull? This is what it should look like.102152.jpg

I think I have the cyclops plastic in pretty good shape. Put new plastic on mine and replaced it.

I will have to look.

I replaced mine with the CPR repro, I'd offer you my old one, but it's pretty bad. Broken at the bottom so you can't install it, and yellowed badly. Actually it was so bad I might have thrown it out.

Pinball Spare Parts has something that may work for you : http://www.pinballspareparts.com.au/boards/04-12368.html May need to be modified a bit .

Found my cyclops plastic. Not too bad. A little warped, dirty and scratched.

The lamp board is on his machine - just tucked up under the skull as this plastic is unavailable.
All he needs is the plastic.

Well and the 2 L brackets to hold it on.

Quoted from Magicchiz:

Just make them out of thin metal, what I did. Tin snips and a drill, no big deal.

Plastic is on its way to you Magic. Went out a couple days ago. Might even have it before the weekend is over.

This seems to be a common problem for EATPM.
I've run into it with my current Restoration project.
