I don't know if any of you all would care for these. I made this one just for fun, but at least in the spirit of slime for GB.

I didn't add a markup to any of these, I can't promise the solid green version will match the other greens on the machine. It's a generic green I can't change that.

If you order the clear resin just mix clear green paint into clear yellow until you get slime green. I normally use Tamiya from hobby stores.

Quoted from Arcade:

I was just thinking those look delicious

LOL do I need to put a choking hazard sticker on these? I am designing a second one that doesn't look cakish.

I'm working on deal and hopefully if it works out I'll have a GB premium. It needs to be shopped but hopefully it's a set deal. I've played GB several times and love it other than how the ball drains by default (it seems). But playing a game and owning a game are two different worlds to me. The first thing I want to do is put the carrot flippers on it, air ball protector. What other stuff are essential before starting some games?

#6017 4 months ago
Quoted from finnflash:

I don't think carrot flippers are necessary. The lane protectors that keep the ball from jumping over into the out lane are a bit more of a necessity.

Do you have a link to the protectors? I have a cart saved on pinball life, do they have them there? Or Marcos?

Well folks I traded for GB premium. It was routed and was ROUGH with 20,000 plays on it. But Craig Hassell shopped it for me, cleaned it, put on all the Titan rubbers I ordered and I will hopefully have it Sunday. I bought the Carrot flippers and a few mods so we'll see how much I love owning it. And I bought all the protectors and such.

Quoted from gunstarhero:

I hope this is an in-process pic cause you’re missing some parts, lol.

All the parts are there it's just apart for cleaning. The cleaning pics are gross.

Quoted from HookedonPinonics:

Congrats! Curious to know if that Premium had any ghosting and after 20,000 plays did it get worse or is everything fine? My premium had ghosting on the inserts and so Stern replaced my playfield. Yet again, this playfield is now ghosting.... Right now I am over it and don't care to go thru the whole process again but if you have one that had issues and everything is good after 20,000 plays, I will feel better about it.

Craig said there aren't any problems other than damage near the kickout hole and shooter lane. Not much to complain about other than standard dimpling.

Normally I wouldn't have been able to afford one of these and if I had $6500 I would have rather had a fun car or something. If it turns out I don't like this one too much I knew I could possibly trade for ACDC, but I am hoping I love this game.

I have played it several times, but I never liked the gap near the flippers.

#6066 3 months ago

So the game has been cleaned, all new titans, Craig from Fun cleaned up the inserts and everything. If all goes well I'll have her here tomorrow night.

Quoted from sethi_i:

I'm not big on mods, but I love that subway car over the left ramp run out!

I think it should have been there to begin with. I wonder how you could paint one cartoony to match.

#6076 3 months ago
Quoted from seenev:

Is there any way to even out the playfield dimpling? I'm guessing it doesn't look so bad from the player's pov but still...

It does look pretty rough. Although I hope it doesn't cause a problem but I think Ghostbusters is the most common one that has dimpling. This game has a LOT of plays, way more than days I've been alive at 38.

But normally I wouldn't have been able to afford this game, it's WAAAAAAAAAY out of my price range. One friend said I should be ashamed for what I got this for. But hopefully I enjoy it. I've always enjoyed it on location but have never been able to play it in a domestic setting.

#6078 3 months ago
Quoted from gunstarhero:

Dimpling just means don’t be afraid to play it more!

It's only a year or so old, albeit routed, but its still better than "players condition" although nowhere near HUO and most HUO still have the dimpling.

#6083 3 months ago
Quoted from gunstarhero:

Pretty much all games have dimples, hell mine is a HUO under a year old and it's covered with em. Screw it. Press the start button and add a few more!

I am pretty certain the only way to get rid of the problem is to cake the whole playfield in clear coat, then sand that down flat and polish. Probably something NOBODY has done with their playfield.

And I plan on playing the hell out of it.

#6085 3 months ago

So got a few games in and it's HARD! The dimpling is there, it was a routed game but from the players angle you don't really see it too bad. Unfortunately for my Guardians not too many toys were made that match what's inside. Either Disney Infinity cartoony or expensive polystone statues.

Fortunately for Ghostbusters, they've been making toys and collectibles for so long especially the Mattel line. So I thought the librarian would look good by the Library. We did a mini tournament and Craig destroyed us all.

Quoted from seenev:

I bought that same librarian toy to put there. I just haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

I haven't played it since I put it in, I'm hoping it doesn't get in the way of Slimer.

#6123 3 months ago

I'm still new to this game, but why have there not been any updates for it? I know someone involved was busted for kiddie stuff, which I guess put somewhat of a stigma on this game, please don't be mad that I don't know the full story.

But I also haven't run into the bugs people are talking about.

Working on a custom topper. What do y'all think?

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Wow, what is it made of?

The ghost is 3d printed. I printed him pretty big, it's about 11" wide. The no sign is lasered pieces of wood I glued together.

Quoted from vireland:

Does it light up?

It will, I'm gonna cut the letters out of acrylic then light that up. I am having a guy 3d print a 15" tall proton pack, we'll see how that goes though.

#6406 54 days ago
Quoted from dnaman:

It's a beauty!
I've just stumbled on that 3D file online, it's fantastic and will use it for sure (in a small way). Where are you 3D printing these and how cost effective is it to do so at that size?

It's not bad, my friend printed it for me, and I just paypaled him $60 for the time to print it. It probably cost $10 to print but on a larger print you have to babysit it. I laser cut 4x .25" wood and clamped them together, the wood sheet was $8? at Home Depot. So all in all It cost about $75 to print. So not bad. The main cost was just to have my friend monitor the print, which is just a pain.

I am selling my Guardians of the Galaxy so I can get the same printer, it prints ABS and has a print field of 9"x9"x20" so I can print big. After that I'm gonna have some fun.

I normally hate filament printers because people never clean them up, never sand or paint them properly. This printer is such high resolution printer for ABS that all you need to do is use filler primer.

Lasering the no sign took about 5 minutes as opposed to having it 3d printer and probably taking 24 hours because its so big.

#6408 53 days ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

What is the printer model number?


I have seen a LOT of printers out there. PLA printers can range from $200-$1200 or more, but the results are usually the same. The resolution on these printers is AMAZING and it's ABS so it's a little stronger.

The basic one is 9x9x9 which is big enough for most people. My friend and I are gonna print full suits and other crazy stuff so we're getting the 9x9x20.

Here is one of my designs we're gonna go full size on, I'm making a female Rocketeer type of character.

#6415 53 days ago
Quoted from Lonzo:

If you want a great printer for a reasonable cost then a CR10S is a great option. I have an original CR10 and it has been a great printer. I still haven't felt the need to spend the money for a higher end printer.

My only problem with most standard printers is cleanup is such pain in the ass. Plus sanding that stuff makes it stink SOOO bad. Just find a printer that leaves as clean of an edge or rounded areas as possible.

And I'm sorry if this conversation is going off the rails but until people get the code they want I figure there can be a little filler. Once (or if) the code drops these will get drowned out pretty quick anyway.

#6459 41 days ago

Had some bad paint reactions so had to sand this down and do several touchups. Bleh, it's not a customers though it's mine, I can deal with imperfections.

My friend said he'd print a few more of these, what would these be worth to people if we did a run of 3-5. Unpainted kit or finished. I'm adding several things to this

Hey folks I designed these to go over the flasher domes because nobody really makes anything to go on top of them. I made one that was supposed to be blood, goo, whatever, and a couple of people said it looked like cake, so I redesigned it to look like dripping blood, goo, slime. I ordered it in green and pink so for GB either would look cool. I'll post pictures when I get it and once I know it fits I'll post a link to the shapeways page.

Any more critique is appreciated. Once again these are resin printed, and are about $15 (which is a GREAT price vs other sites PLA printed mods)

#6619 16 days ago

Someone asked me to make some slime for the top of slimer's assembly. I just had the latest file crash but this was just an initial design. Even after I design it I have to print it first before I list it.

Anyway what do you think of the first draft?

#6631 13 days ago

Just finished the prototype for Slimers bash assembly. If this fits I'll post the shapeways link soon.

#6633 13 days ago

It fits except the front screwhole. And I can't tell which way it should go so I think I just need to make them wider for whatever tolerances you guys have. Also since it's on the bottom and you won't see it I don't see an issue taking a drill bit to it until it fits. My fix should take care of it though.

My suggestion is to order the green, then airbrush slime green for the highlights then hit it with some gloss clear. We'll see how it turns out.

#6667 10 days ago

I'll have all the prototypes by Saturday but I redesigned the slimer slime assembly, so you'll have 2 options. I also tapered the flasher dome covers so they fit perfectly snug.

If you don't mind spending the extra money you can order all of these in clear and paint them with Tamiya clear in order to get a translucent look. Once I know they fit perfectly I'll post the links.

#6695 8 days ago

Here is the green and pink slime flasher cover. This is the non tapered design. Just apply with double sided tape.

#6703 7 days ago
Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:

Are they too tall or did you not want them to be flush with the top of the flasher dome? Or maybe cover the top with slime and light up from the inside when the flasher goes off even...

The tapered one should fit perfectly snug. those should be in today or monday.

Quoted from freddy:

they would look good if translucent green or pink. just my 2 cents.

You can order these as clear, then paint them with Tamiya clear. It looks pretty good.

#6704 7 days ago

Ok folks, the slimer bash assembly came in green and the new holes fit like a charm. It just pops on, you can use double sided tape if you wish. I did a V2 where the drips don't go down as far, and might do a 3rd. But anyway order this in green or pink, whichever you want.

#6705 7 days ago

Here is the link for V1.

You can spend more money and order this in clear, I would order the smoothest it's not perfectly clear, you can paint over this with Tamiya clear paints, just mix a good slime green.

Or order it in pink or green.


#6706 7 days ago

Here is the tapered flasher dome covers. I think these came out great and there is still a little clearance on the top. I will design a different one for the ghost trap one.

These are cheap. I am putting ZERO markup on these. They are printed in resin which is much stronger than most pinball mods. I make ZERO money from this.

Quoted from lpeters82:

Any idea how this green matches the color of the slime modes from Back Ally Creations. Considering an order, but I wouldn't want it to clash.

I'm not sure, I took those pictures with the flash on but you can see it's a brighter green than the slimer itself. It's not slime green but it doesn't clash in the machine.

Even though I'm fairly up on technology I have a crappy Samsung Go Phone, I find it appalling to spend more than $200 on a phone for some reason so these aren't good pictures.

I am planning on adding slime green highlights and coating it in clear to give it more of a shine. Keep in mind you can order this in white, primer it and then color match with paints as well. I would suggest clear coating it to make it slime shiny.
