If you have a SE and want the spinning pop bumpers then you may be in luck! I am working on a prototype right now which would give a very similar look to what JJP sells out of the box for LE and CE owners. Once again this would be plug and play, including all of the parts you need and a choice of character to top one of the barrels.

Let me know if you are interested so I can get an idea of what kind of quantities I can order in.

Yes! Depending on price of course.

Right now, based on parts and printing I think we're probably in the $50 range per pop bumper with possibly an upcharge if you want one of the Neca figurines I was able to nab. I think I'll have a few Davy Jones and a few Jack Sparrow. Very hard to find now.

Plug and play kit, no cutting or splicing or anything. Just unscrew the plastic and shove everything in

Otherwise they will just be spinning barrels that you can add any figure to the top of (for the close one). I think we'll also produce the flat top options for the other 2 pops so you can replace the plastics and have them all match. Those should be pretty cheap.

And I did confirm this is plug and play on SE games, no modifications needed.

That's awesome. Your work may make the se not a bad choice after all.

Star map, spinning pop bumpers.. grab a shaker motor (I think you did) and maybe we end up making some Depths rocks (or better!) and you're set!

#6 14 days ago

You are amazing! I’ll be snagging this one along with the starmap

#7 14 days ago

Awesome. Should have it ready to test soon.

Looking forward to it. Waiting on this before I order your chest mod and a few other things. Thanks!

Cool. I should have a prototype barrel in hands this week and I have the rest of the components to build one, so I'll do that and test on my LE. Then we'll do a production run of a few and I'll throw them up on the site. Hopefully next week.

1 week later

I'm already disenchanted with my 3D printer. It's 2019 damnit, why does it take so long?! I need one that prints out in say 5-10 minutes, not 1-2 hours. UGH!

#12 5 days ago

How many RPM is that motor?

I think it might actually look a bit better if it spins a little slower than the original LE/Ce spinning pop bumper cap.

Slower like Bigfoot's head on Wh2o...

#13 5 days ago

It will, the game pulses the motor this was straight powered.

Cool Harry!! I'm in on this, the chest and just waiting for the Starfield to ship. Your the best!!

#15 5 days ago

Starfield plastics got in today, they look awesome. I am tinkering with the lighting on it for those who want it, hopefully have another test tonight.

Cool!!! Cant wait fo install it then order the rest your like my crack dealer.... well if I smoked crack.

I'd say the prototyping phase is pretty much done. So far I think we have the following pieces of info to share:

1. Plug and play, no soldering or crimping.
2. Easier to install than even the JJP stock one, design improvements
3. Unique design elements & barrel toppers
4. Limited offering of Neca figures Jack and Davy
5. More broad offering of 3D printed & hand painted Jack and Davy
6. 4 barrel matching set, consistent look

Figuring out the total upgrade add on price and individual barrels (if you just want the full barrel tops for the other two static barrels on a LE/CE). Next up, painted production samples. All the electronics are here and ready to go.
