Quoted from Cyberrocker:

Bad Ass Victor! Yet another great / must have Maiden Mod IMHO. Count me in for a premium version when you get it finalized. \m/

Thanks!

What I hope is the last test-fit version is going out today to check the hex screw length (which is different for a Prem/LE due to the bracket that doesn't exist on the Pro) and verify the overall fit is now right on the Prem/LE moving bracket.

We have a successful test of the moving version on the Prem/LE! The clearances were really tight in the up position, so I had to redesign it a bit, but it works now for Pro and Prem/LE and from the front looks no different! This test one is gray only because I was printing them quickly to get the redesign right. The real ones will be the gold and higher res like you've seen in some of the other Pro pics.

Those two small holes at the bottom are now all that's visible on the front. No more factory big ugly stainless screw heads to mess up the look. I've made a hidden mount that you just slide the Anubis on to, then you tighten the screws using a small hex wrench I'll provide with each one. The holes are just big enough to let the wrench in.

Thanks to Hdmike444 for getting me initial Prem/LE measurements and to dgposter who helped me do the numerous test fittings on the Prem/LE since we only have a Pro here. It was a LOT different fit and required multiple adjustments to be able to clear the crossmember on the cabinet when it was in the up position. It wouldn't have been possible without his help.

Thanks! I'm excited to get the finished version into the wild.

Quoted from patrickvc:

I'll put up an interest list within the next two weeks. I just need to work out the last few details.

#56 8 months ago

Wow! That looks amazing!! Please add me to the list.

Do you think it would be possible to make some small plugs or something to cover the holes? I know they are only small and not very noticeable, just thought it might finish it off.

Well done!!

I've thought about it, but they're tiny in real life and less intrusive on the gold version. In the interests of not making improvements forever and just getting it out, I'll probably ship it the way it is. Compare it with the giant metal screws on the factory plastic and these are a huge improvement.

#58 8 months ago

Hey Vic. Will you sell the Anubis by itself like some have asked.

Would be the way I would prefer.

Great work

If I can do something without delaying it, I will though. I am, unfortunately, a perfectionist.

Great work

Big picture, the lighting only changes it a couple dollars and I'd rather everyone has the same kit because after a lot of experimentation uplighting makes it look the best. But even if you decide it's not for you, the alligator clips and post make it so it can be used on any other machine.

#62 8 months ago

Looks really nice! Definitely in for one when they become available.

#63 8 months ago

I really like what you've done, but I'm never going to own an Iron Maiden. How would it look mounted in MB near the Mummy?

I like this kind of outside the box thinking! It probably would look...wrong because the style's totally different, but I can't say 100%.

#65 8 months ago

This is really a beautiful mod. The way Vic did the mounting is very slick. You guys are going to love this one!

#66 8 months ago

It looks great. Put me in for one please.

Thinking about this some more, maybe I should have a contest once these are out to find the best non-Iron Maiden home for Anubis when he needs a change of pace...I'll start:

Vacationing in Ghostbusters?

A magical time in Houdini?

Or maybe hanging out on the Family Guy ramp?

Okay, I have the parts all worked out. The Anubis works on the static Pro using supplied hex standoffs or the moving Prem/LE. Both mount using a hidden mount that slides over the supplied button top screws and tightens from the front using a supplied min-hex wrench. Total installation (removing existing plastic and installing 3D Anubis) is about 10 minutes on either the Pro or Prem/LE. Here are some pics of the installation on a Pro:

Hex standoffs installed with the button top screws about 1/2 way in to leave room to slide the mount over them:

Example of the bottom of the Anubis showing the receptacles where the screws slide in on the back:
anubis1b (resized).jpg

Using the hex wrench to tighten the Anubis on the mount through the small access holes in the front:
anubis2 (resized).jpg

Finished installation:
anubis3 (resized).jpg

I still think uplighting is the best way to show it off, but it was taking too much time to source the parts at a reasonable rate and put together the kit in the best way, so I'm not doing a kit with the external lighting included.

Anubis kit will come in a box with the following:
1 x Anubis figure
2 x Hex standoffs
2 x Button Top screws
1 x hex wrench

Price is $69, shipped in the US. I have the interest list started with anyone that already posted that they wanted one. Anyone that wants one that HASN'T posted that in this thread, PM me and I'll add you to the list. These take a LONG time to print and they'll go out first come, first served. I expect to start shipping them in the next 10 days or so one. Once the initial orders are done, these will go in the Pinmonk store and it will be $69 + shipping.

I’ll take one if I’m not already on the list!

Are these paintable? I’m thinking of giving it an aged look

It's PLA, so most paint works on it.

You're definitely on the list. I'm sending you and dgposter one free for helping me out with measurements and testing on the Premium/LE. It really helped a LOT to get this compatible with both the non-moving Pro and the moving Prem/LE bracket.

That’s amazing! Happy to help out a fellow pinside modder. You are truly one of the great people that make this hobby better!

Basically anyone that said put me down for one, or add me to the list or whatever in this thread is already on the list. I'll be sending out invoices mid-late next week with shipping to follow the week after.

Put me on the list for a Prem/LE version.
I wish I was talented enough to paint it...
I think I’ll send mine to the Modfather for a paint job!

Try it without paint first and maybe uplight it. I think you'll find it looks great.

Please put me on the Premium list.

You posted you wanted on the list, so you're there. I went through the posts twice so I wouldn't miss anyone.

Yes, you're already there. It might be a good time for you and the other international orders to see if they can get together with their buddies that may be getting it to pool the shipments to save on not-inexpensive international shipping.
