Working on wireforms to replace the side plastic ramps. I will be selling these soon. My priority is Mandalorian orders i will do some of these to break up the week. Pricing to follow. Thanks for the request to look at this game. 90 percent on left side. Need to make brackets and mounts for flashers.

Following and I can already tell you I’m a buyer when your ready!

#3 57 days ago

One day and you have a prototype already??? Wow!

#4 57 days ago

I think these will be a great addition to an already fantastic game, I’m in!

#5 57 days ago

The first right side looked of due to sharp turn. I just started another and this style of ramp is easier to mass produce. Only issue is now I have to do left side again to match this right.

Quoted from Markharris2000:

One day and you have a prototype already??? Wow!

I need to do as much as I can in one day due to other customer orders. But, thanks.

Outstanding! Glad I was one of the first 5 to say do it and I was in.

I am always amazed at the creativity of folks on this site.

#10 57 days ago

O wow!!! I'll definitely take a set.

#11 57 days ago

Im inn great work

#12 57 days ago

Count me in!! Your an artist sir. Definitely want to be on your list for a set.

#13 57 days ago

I’ve been waiting for someone to think of this for years. Kudos!!! I’m in as well. Impressive skill set to be able to put these together the way you do. Thanks doe doing this!

#14 57 days ago

Is there a creative story to the widened lower part of each? Are they just art or functional?
These are amazing!

#15 57 days ago

I’m in for a set!

Quoted from Markharris2000:

The ball drops are from the mandalorian rails I make as I know they work. The ball gets knocked down by upper rail, it takes the ball impact and also directs its downward. I just wanted to make a set that worked and get the basic design down and go from there. The drops might change.

I still need to do flasher mounts and locations. I made poly transition adapters for the rails. I will need to get hardware for the slings as the stud height is too small to mount anything on them. I have long screws going through everything on top. I want to make this easy to install.

Thanks for the compliments. I enjoy making wireforms. And it helps pay the bills. I need to get what I want to sell down to a formula that is Material and labor costs. I charge $50 an hour for the welding. So, for me to get the price right I have to make a few sets to get average time. I will get there soon.

#18 57 days ago

Those are way cool. Opens up the playfield more than I would have guessed. Nice work! I'm in when you get to it.

#19 57 days ago

Hell yeah....count me in. I'm so excited. Any chance you could make a metal ramp for the entrance

#20 57 days ago

Im in 110% on these

#21 57 days ago
Quoted from Swoods5688:

Logan is doing some really cool things....just like protectors are known as Cliffy's....should the new name for wireforms be known as Logans?????

#22 57 days ago

Now if we could only get the entrance of the ramp metal like on Metallica

#23 57 days ago

Please count me in. If you are starting a list. Is there a difference between premium and the pro?

#24 57 days ago

Been a GOTG owner since 2018 and am definitely interested in these! Beautiful work!
I would agree with prior comments that if possible having the lower return area be slimmer and just drop the ball where it goes (Ala AIQ) vs the larger design you did for Mando would be cool to see. But you are the artist and look forward to seeing final product!

I did not like the look either. It was just a proven drop. I had to figure out the best diameter die to shape it. It has to be bigger than drop hole, but not sure how close I could go.. It looks like this form will work! And I trimmed off the rings that were just to hold together. This is most likely the design I will sell.

Looks awesome! I would start a list from who said they are in and then go from there.

#27 56 days ago

What's a rough estimate of what a set of these will cost?

#28 56 days ago

I think it looks great. Excellent and talented work. How do you plan to incorporate the 3 red dome lights onto the wire forms?

Great question. I am sure someone can figure that out.

He said that he's still working on that.

Quoted from Nazz26:

I just need to weld brackets.

Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

Great question. I am sure someone can figure that out.

$50 an hour to tig weld labor.
Cost to be added:
Hardware to change out front sling bolts as they are too short.
stainless rods
Argon gas ( number of welds x 10 / $49.00)
Polycarbonate sheets for adapters

I need to make 3 more sets to see what the average time is making them. The first is not a good measure as I have to figure things out on the fly. Now I just need to replicate.

Mandalorian rails take me 4 hours and I sell those at $220 shipped. Its all about the time. I will update and give a price when I bang out another 3 sets.

Anyone else seeing these looking like Groot’s arms!?! You could have his hands/fingers over the inlanes and then coat the wireforms the same color as his head. Doesn’t block any ball view and would still give you that Groot arms/hands essence the LE design tried to capture but obstructed a lot of view.

I like the newer angle on the left ramp too, the first one looked like it might slow the ball a tad and in this game every second counts cause the mode timers don’t stop for pops Groot’s mouth the scoop or nothing!

Great work!

These are measurements right above mounting screws or playfield landmarks. I would have to see a premium in person to verify, but maybe this answers the question.

Sorry if it has been mentioned before but would you be able to retro fit the upper flipper ramp to LZ?

Thx for the measurements, can you show the clearance under the rails? I should have been clearer.
Again looking forward to these.
thx

What will you be doing for the 3 flashers that are connected

The only way I could do anything would be to have the machine and at this point it is very unlikely.

Attempting hands.. let see how this looks? And I only have 23 more star wars rails to make, so these will be up soon.

I was asked about putting hands on the rails. I agreed to try and see the look. Still adding body to the hands but heres a quick look

I want to like it, but I agree with you about the visual that you'd probably need more artifacts going up the arm to really tie-in. Perhaps simpler might be better (and save you some TIG time!)
