I finally got around to installng my Eddie cards and Fireball loop brackets last night and they look phenomenal!

#252 3 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

The Batman '66 TV inserts kind of work as white, and the bat signal maybe could be made yellowish, but I don't think it would really add that much.
Herman's Dragula inserts on Munsters are definitely getting a color bracket, though. With all the other colored inserts (especially on the B/W premium), weird that they left those inserts white.

What is wrong with some contrast? White is a colour too.

In Batman'66 I totally agree that the inserts that are white make sense. But especially on the B/W Premium Munsters, a giant block of white inserts isn't really contrast. I might change my mind when I see it in person, but from the streams, Dragula inserts were asking for color.

The Pinmonk UK order has arrived for distribution.

Thanks for the support! This'll go out Tuesday since tomorrow is MLK day and the post office is closed.

I put this in the mod thread, but I'll put it here, too, so people who don't check the mod thread can see it...
Just a preview of something else I'm working on for Iron Maiden. I want to start by getting that diorama on the left into 3D. Anubis was the hard part, so now I just have to do the columns on the left and right of him and figure out coloring/lighting. It's an encouraging start, though.

Any more progress on this ? I would love to add this to my game

Still working on the details of it, but getting closer. Works great on the Pro, but I need to locate a Prem/LE to make sure it will clear the light in the back when it raises up.

Understood, I hope it does! Thx for the update, and if you need measurements or anything let me know and I’ll check on mine

I have worked out a hidden mount so you don't have the giant stainless-colored screws on the waist area of it - that took a while. I've also scaled it up just a little to take up a bit more of the space so it doesn't look so puny. I have a test fitting of the gold/sandstone version today with the hidden mount, so I'll take a picture of that if it goes well.

EDIT: Got a picture taken of the test fitting today and decided to break this part of the discussion out from the mode lens tree mod since it's completely different and people that are interested can carry on over there. The thread with the updated test picture from today is here:

Looking pretty great. So much better than the flat plastic.

Yep-looks amazing. The modding on this pin has been so damn good.

I'm in the process of shopping out my game and had to add the mode and card color lenses. I have the rest of the set ready to install, but just want to say what and excellent mod this is. Great seller and product. Thanks PinMonk!

Wow, looks great with everything lit up!

#268 45 days ago

Thanks! Looking forward to installing the Fireball and Mummy, too. ...Oh and the Anubis sculpt too. (when available)

ooop. messed up post.

My intention is to make the Anubis sculpture mod completely plug and play with everything you need to make it look great on a Pro or a Premium/LE. It really looks great installed - much like the Iron Maiden Lens tree, I see pictures of machines without it and think they look weird.

#271 41 days ago

Fireball and Mummy gel added. Getting closer to finishing up, can’t wait to play it again!

Looks great! What else are you doing to it?

#273 41 days ago

Well, I'm currently putting it all back together after a top playfield tear-down. While I've been cleaning things and putting new rubbers on, I've been experimenting and changing LEDs. Also been adding mods along the way like your gel inserts. Plan on adding the Anubis when you have it ready, too.
I just put on a lighted sarcophagus that I tied into the flasher under the middle ramp. I put a small led strip behind the M-U-M-M-Y sign too, so that would be lit up. I have to finish up wiring for my lighted flipper buttons and also a Spitfire plane I'm adding LEDs to.

Nice. Where are you pulling the power for the flipper buttons from?

#275 41 days ago

That I’m not sure yet. I was thinking of getting a spike power tap from Pinball Life

Everything lit up, tried to get all colored lens inserts in the shot.

Looks great. You got it all on the screen, AND you got the coloring to show up right for Aces High and Rime. In pictures those often end up looking almost the same color, while yours clearly shows Rime as sea green and Aces sky blue they are in "real life."

We are swapping out a Pro for a Premium on the route I help with and I just finished upgrading it with all the lenses. The stock game with no lenses looks so WRONG to me now.

Got my Eddie card mod. Now if I could just earn some !

Mummy card's the easiest. Just keep spamming the upper spinner shot with the right flipper and shoot a little earlier to hit the captive ball when mummy lights up to collect the jackpot. You can make very short work of the mummy multiball requirements this way and get the card pretty easily.

Just finished up a lens bracket for the Orb light that colors it on a Pro (Premium/LEs are RGB so it's not necessary for them) and eliminates that gap where the upside-down flasher cover hangs down. Currently I have it in blue, but I was going to offer 3 choices for the color. What should the other two colors be? Purple? Green? Pink? Yellow?

#281 33 days ago

Cool! Purple and Yellow

#282 33 days ago

Here's what the bracket looks like with a blue lens in it. The edge of the bracket lines up with the edge of the plastic, so it just looks like a thick plastic piece since I'm using clear filament:
