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 2 years ago

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

#4 2 years ago

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

#5 2 years 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 2 years ago

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

#11 2 years ago

Im inn great work

#12 2 years ago

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

#13 2 years 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 2 years ago

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

#15 2 years ago

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.

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 2 years ago

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

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 2 years ago

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

#23 2 years ago

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

#24 2 years 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 2 years ago

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

#28 2 years 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?

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!

Quoted from playtwowin:

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.

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

Not sure... I would have to have more body going up to the head for this to work visually..Thoughts?

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!)
