    Not from the original but still cool...

    The Halloween 4K Blu-Ray is amazing! If you have the equipment, I highly recommend it!

    I’ve heard it is. I’ll have to check it out. Finally able to start thinking about this thing again after getting my ass kicked at the office all week.

    Screwing around with some more apron ideas while watching the game. I’m going to send it out to see if it can be screenprinted, and have two made.

    After seeing more of what the actual cut outs and layout would be, I’m kind of thinking maybe to go with orange but darker, with silver font for lettering. Black would have orange lettering, but still seems kind of bland. Thoughts?

    I like the Black better than the orange .

    #156 4 months ago
    Quoted from ultimategameroom:

    I like the Black better than the orange .

    Thinking about what I’m considering & gathering for the lower playfield design, black might work a little better.

    Plus the black mock up is kind of dull in color, and the final will have a base black glossy finish.

    #157 4 months ago

    Black apron no question, little back lighting underneath it will look phenomenal.

    #158 4 months ago

    It seems the consensus is in. I agree, especially because I’m much more agreeable after two glasses of this.

    I know it’s not the official logo if you reverse it but could you backlight the Halloween pumpkin logo? And reverse it and have it on the other side of the apron too?

    Would also be very cool if you could backlight the writting on the apron.

    I was planning on illuminating the center Michael decal and maybe the custom instruction cards / free play cards. Backlighting the writing might be tough, or tough and very pricy. That's a lot of cut outs.

    Or maybe convert one of the acrylic aprons and just apply decals, and backlight the whole thing?

    Quoted from SLAMT1LT:

    I had a lot of fun working on my Halloween game last year. I had to watch every film for the research, and I'd only ever seen 1, 2 and 3. From 4 onwards they all suck, but I salvaged some great quotes from Donald Pleasence.
    You'll have a ball working on this theme.[quoted image]

    If a stern metal apron with the windows in it fits, you could use one of those. Then you could lasercut pieces of acrylic sized to fit in the triangluar areas with logos/text/etc. That would probably be a lot cheaper than laser cutting the apron itself. That would also make it easier to try different designs and just swap em in and out til you find sometime you like.

    #163 4 months ago

    ^^ That’s a good suggestion. Maybe I’ll try that out.

    #164 4 months ago

    You could also fit a mini LCD in the apron window if you wanted some video or animated stuff instead of just backlit text.

    Now that’s a good idea Doc, not just for this pin but custom pins in general, pinch this one for my custom game.

    I do like the idea. Maybe run some movie clips with a Raspberry Pi?

    So Doc, how much you want to combine these ideas and put a killer apron together for this thing? Haha

    If you want to just play assorted clips you can use one of the 4d smart displays. All the video processing stuff is built into the display so once you create your slideshow, animation, videos or whatever you put it on an SD card and the display will play automatically loop through them whenever +5v volts is applied.

    For Lost in Space they always did a cliffhanger at the end of each episode, copied the following year by Batman. So for the beginning of each new episode they would do a recap to show what happened and start it off with "Last Week As You Recall....". So I thought it would be cool to have the video clips for each episode play in a little LCD on the apron. This a 2.4" that I put in apron and made a plastic bezel to give it a cleaner look.

    Took a quick glance, but I’ll look in more detail when I have time later this week. Thanks for the info and link. Much appreciated.

    That’s awesome. You’ll have to PM me your itinerary with addresses. I should be heading out that way in a few months. Nice touch representing with the Solid State tee.

    You were probably creeping the neighbors the hell out. LOL.

    Here is a video my son took of me in costume around Halloween 2007. He was only 6 years old at the time but did a nice job of keeping the camera on point, lol. Great theme, thread followed...

    Save that stencil and send it to me so I can use it for the cabinet.

    Hi Colsond, how about a knive handle plunger?
    Like puling knive out or stabbing.

    That’s a cool idea. Definitely in on the knife handle as a plunger.

    Hopefully should be getting back to tackling this thing this week.

    Which reminds me of when Ralph Kramden won first prize in a costume contest for his impersonation of a pinball machine.

    I was checking to see if he was touring this year.

    Cool shirt!
    I got the same one as a gift for Christmas. I also got these back in the fall. Lots of cool merch came out with the movie release.

    That Homecoming shirt is awesome! I’ve been real busy with work and a few other things, so I haven’t had enough time to get back to tackling this project. Feel like a slacker. Plan is to jump back on it in the next couple of weeks.

    Quoted from ultimategameroom:

    Colson I saw this posted on john carpenters website and it reminded me of your thread.

    Kev, thanks for posting and putting this back on my brain. Made me reach out to my buddy who said he should have some sketches of final PF art in the next couple weeks.

    Good news: That put fire under my ass and made me finally drag this thing into the gameroom, where it’s gotta be in the winter to really dig in. Now that Justin’s moving on the PF, need to finish stripping and get on the cab work.

    Bad news: Back side of the cab and rear bottom edge is much rougher than I thought. Looks like it may have gotten some minor-moderate moisture damage at some point in its life. Might have to be totally redone.

    Replacing a full wall of a cab is not something I’ve tackled before...

    #195 5 days ago

    It’s a shame, because the rest of the cab is in pretty damn good shape. A little bit of chipping up by the back box grate too.

    I think it is still usable for this project. Looks like it’s time to up my carpentry experience and knowledge base so it’s done the right way.

    And decided not to go with anything drastic...like orange. Going to keep this game dark. Gunmetal gray for the legs and armor. Got the legs back yesterday.
