    So I picked up a project Jungle Lord a month or so ago. Playfield has some wear, cab needs work, etc. As much as JL has the absolute best art package ever made....well, it doesn't, but it's still fun as hell to play. I was batting around ideas for a retheme to take a stab at one...and I've settled on the epic John Carpenter classic.

    Working on some designs for the playfield and plastics currently, and my bud's working on reprogramming the sound board and making new ROM's. Another friend of mine is a storyboard / scene artist out in LA, and he's planning on helping with the PF and cab artwork.

    Going to start the JL tear down hopefully this weekend and get this party underway. Always open to input or opinions. Some music for attract mode...

    I know man…right? As soon as I posted the thread I couldn’t help myself. I went back out to the garage, took off the glass and dove in, at least to get started. I need to get Justin some scans of the plastics anyway.

    Colson,

    Want to sell me that old backglass CHEAP? I have 3 Jungle Lords sitting here and only one decent backglass! One is going to be a "keeper" since Barb loves to play that game - one is a donor machine and the 3rd one could be saved if I had a decent backglass for it.

    Also - if you end up needing any dedicated Jungle Lord parts I'll have pretty much an entire parts machine.

    -Skip-

    Quoted from too-many-pins:

    Are you kidding? I was going to frame this thing and make it the centerpiece of my entire house. LOL.

    Seriously though...sure Skip. I’m sure we can figure it out. It does have a tiny bit of flaking, but not bad compared to a bunch I’ve seen of this title. I can bring it to York if you want it.

    Colson,

    Bring it along & I will be able to "save" another machine. I hated to part out two Jungle Lords just because of "weak" or missing backglass. Your backglass will match condition of any of the 3 machines I have. None of them are perfect but all 3 are likely too nice to make into parts if I don't have to.

    Thanks,
    Skip

    Did you ever finish making one nice Dracula out of the two or are you like us and just need to start another project before the others are finished? Every place I look I have something 1/2 finished!

    And awesome. I’ll keep that in mind as I get through this one. The inside of this one is pretty clean.

    Yeah man. Already done, and my other one is already sold and gone. I think I did that the night after I got home from your house.

    Shit! Skip do you have the lower flipper assemblies, or at least both brackets? It looks like both of the stoppers on these are busted with chunks missing down near the coil lugs.E548D713-E529-490C-82D0-38B2EB23E38A (resized).jpeg

    If anybody needs plastics let me know. The bottom right sling has a chip out of it, and the left main tiger plastic has a crack and a chip off the top left corner, but the rest are really nice.

    Definitely, thanks Alex. It’s going to be a process. I’m anxious to get it moving though. You and your pop will be down here trying to pick it up when I’m done. Make sure you bring the pinball armor.

    #19 6 months ago

    Plastics, rubbers and ramps off.

    If he doesn't have them I do.
    I was also saving a JL for years that I wanted to retheme to a Heavy Metal pin. Ended up parting out the game.

    Cool. Let me know how much you want for them and if you can bring them to York.

    Definitely a cool pin to retheme. Multilevel games are always fun.

    Just trying to come up with ideas. He and I are apparently both deep in thought.

    #25 6 months ago

    Awesome. I'm doing my own retheme myself right now. Just gathering all the art files and modification materials now.

    Then the fun starts.

    Good luck with the project. Looking forward to seeing the completion.

    #26 6 months ago

    Hells yes! Even though I’m still scarred from seeing Halloween as a 9 year old in 1978, stoked to see how this turns out.

    #27 6 months ago

    two 'thumbs up' for this project.

    Quoted from captainadam_21:

    Of course, that goes without saying. In the words of Barney Stinson...challenge accepted.

    Although it would be much easier to incorporate if I were doing a Trading Places or True Lies retheme.

    #30 6 months ago

    Bottom PF surface is stripped other than mechs and a few metal posts. Two of my ramps have some dings at the bottom that it looks like somebody tried to straighten. Anybody have a nice set I could grab or swap out?

    #32 6 months ago

    That Dracula was AMAZING in person. Well done. Can’t wait to see Halloween!

    #33 6 months ago

    Great theme choice. I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

    one of the movies that change my life as a kid, always been a horror junky but I never looked at music in a film the same after.

    Just ordered this shirt last week.
    Best movie ever !!!

    Definitely. You mean the Vampire I restored and took to A-town?

    As for the Stern Drac, I had a good example, but his PF was nicer than mine and cabs were about equal. So I swapped out my shooter hive, coin door, plastics and my backglass and shopped it with Titan rubbers and LEDs. Sold another Pinsider the leftover game for a great price, which was still a pretty decent example.

    #38 6 months ago

    Oh this is going to be good!

    After seeing what you did to Dracula can’t wait to see this progress.

    #39 6 months ago

    Are you limiting yourself to only the first movie?

    I don’t think any of us did. A lot of people don’t even realize that John Carpenter transposed the music from some basic chords/notes that his father taught him on the piano when he was a kid, and he even composed and played the music for the movie himself.

    With only a $300,000 budget, he didn’t have many choices. The movie went on to gross over $50 million after release, even though it had flopped and was heavily criticized in the first few weeks.

    Your Jaws retheme was part of my inspiration to attempt one myself. You did a phenomenal job with that game.

    I’m going to take my time though, because I want to do it right. I might be hitting you up for some advice and input if you don’t mind.

    #42 6 months ago
    Quoted from ultimategameroom:

    Maybe the first and second. I’m trying to keep it as original as possible. Don’t want to dive into the latter movies, or the Rob Zombie remakes.

    #43 6 months ago

    A likeness of Jamle Lee Curtis on the game somewhere would be nice. She was hot, scared or not..............

    Man, when you’re searching for ideas...people really put a lot of time into analytics for cinematic murder.

    Did anyone catch any of the shows he did a few years ago ?
    We had the best time!
    John was smoking a cig. By the back door in the Alley before the show when we parked. Didn’t want to bother him so just gave him a quick nod and smile as we walked by.

    Unfortunately I did not, but that sounds awesome. And classy on the nod. Now I’m going to look for one of those posters to hang in the game room next to this thing when it’s done.
