We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Anyone drill out these rivots when putting a prem or alternate eddy on Pops to replace the plastic one on a Pro? Seems like would be a cleaner look.

Personally, I'd set that aside in a baggie and have Terry at pinball life order the plastic cap from the Prem/LE (that doesn't have the slot or rivets). Shouldn't cost that much and that way you have a situation that is totally reversible.

EDIT: I'd still check with Terry to see if it can be ordered individually, but it may only be available as part of the plastics set for that machine, and it's spendy.

Good idea. I'll investage and report back!

I've been waiting for someone to make some cooler pop plastic caps...

It's not easy to make them look right, and it's not just the caps, but there's a trim piece in front of the front one that has to be done or it all looks wrong.

Thanks. I was thinking of that but as you know. most of the times you can’t purchase one plastic. I’d be suprised if Terry would offer just that single plastic. I left it alone for now.

I've been on and off that project for a while. Same thing for the columns with torches that I worked on and set aside a number of times before finally getting it right (they're in final testing), so probably back to these again to see if I can make them work and look right.

That would be cool, I've never liked the caps.

Here are some of my mods.
I used those two posts to tie Eddie's chains to make it look like they are supposed to be there.

Finally picked up an Iron Maiden Pro, and hated the lack of detail on the playfield. I also just so happened to have bought a 3d printer a couple of months ago by telling the wife it was to print out parts for the pins. I finally pulled through with that promise. Here's my first prototype to replace some of the flat plastics, an undead Anubis and torches. Thinking of maybe printing Anubis in black instead of wood and painting it up with enamel.

The last pic is the start of a multi piece Pharaoh replacement, test printing to get the sizing down.

Howdy neighbor and fellow IMDN pro owner! The Pharoah looks slick. Going on the back board exactly where the image is I assume? I have never used a 3d printer before, are you just turning an image into a mold or did you find something 3d available out there. No clue at all how it works.

Howdy! I found files online for the different objects I am using, some free some I paid for. The jist of it is loading the files into a program (slicer) that then creates the code the printer then uses to print it out. The printer starts and the bottom, and prints 10ths of a millimeter layers as it goes up. There are also 3d modeling programs out there if you want to make your own objects, which is what I am trying to learn now.

Sounds like fun making something appear out of nothing lol. Though I need another hobby right now like I need a hole in the head...

Interested to see how your pharaoh comes out!

Trying to fit it over the Pharaoh plastic. I'm not sure the legality of me selling it, as none of the models are mine, I just stick them together. And also, it may just shatter into a million pieces the first time the ball smacks into it haha

Test installed. Next up is paint.

Looks cool! Could you make them all a little larger so they completely cover the background graphics behind them? Might have to shave off a bit of the two side pieces so the center piece would still fit.

Installed, I actually like the little bit of graphics that show, it adds depth to it. If I print another I will try a print of it larger, though, interested how it would look.

Actually, if the head-dress lines, uh, line-up with the background it would probably look good when front lit. Maybe instead of larger all around just either mount it a little higher or add some more material to the bottom of the center piece so the top covers the background. Might make more room for the beard to clear the target area (hard to tell if it's an issue or not from the pic).

When you print mine I'll just take the center piece since the side one won't work on the LE.

Got a premium here and the cheap plastic for the tomb shot was killing me. Found a necklace on eBay and just strategically wrapped the chain. No modification in any way to the game and completely removable. I'm happy enough.

Agreed, I just wish they were easier (cheaper) to get done here in the states with swap out parts. I would definitely have a few games done if it were a little more feasible. I LOVE the Jurassic park treatment with all the caution stuff.

Quoted from DrMark12PA:

Just placed my order for a premium and wondering what are the must have mods for the game... so far I'm considering:
1) insert gels
2) underworld scoop illumination
3) obelisk dome cover
4) pharaoh blinder light kit
5) album cover side blades
6) flame torches
7) backboard illumination
8) pharaoh plastic protector
9) shaker
10) I have the Piece of Mind, Killers, and Trooper aftermarket toy figures ready to install
**11) considering the plane but thinking about making my own with possible motorized prop as shown in thread.
**12) looking at the sarcophagus and Anubis figures (Modfather) but was wondering if there any other versions to at least compare
**13) considering the lighted orb mod but was hoping to find a clairvoyant figurine to use with the lighted orb
**14) trying to find the fluorescent yellow lane protectors
