Products are now shipping! 2-3 weeks to customize and create your specific set but all figures are in stock. Hand painted and finished.

----------------

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.

#2 1 year ago

Yes! Depending on price of course.

#3 1 year ago

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 1 year ago

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

#7 1 year ago

Awesome. Should have it ready to test soon.

#8 1 year ago

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

#9 1 year ago

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.

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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#14 1 year ago

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

#15 1 year 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.

#16 1 year ago

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

#17 1 year ago

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.

Painted a prototype today, looks pretty darn good for a crappy 3D print (draft mode, just a quick output). Working on a full set so we can show some pics and start taking orders. We'll be airbrushing the final product with a better color match to existing game elements. I believe we have about 5 Jack and 3 Davy that we can produce with Neca figures. The other two static pops have special designs to take in to account the lighting inside. The other spinning pop also has a unique design. These are all in one pieces, easy install compared to the JJP originals.

Oh and I don't know if the JJP ones were meant to spin off-center, I think it's just a function of the rubber molded piece not being weighed and aligned properly (it isn't perfectly round). Not sure if that is beneficial or not, but these spin perfectly. We can easily add a bit of weight to one side or put the figure off center to get some wobble, if that is what you want.

I think these will look great on a LE/CE as well since all the pops will match and look similar.

#19 1 year ago

Harry I'm definitely in on the Davy Jones version! Message me when its ready and can pay whenever.

#20 1 year ago

So... here's a tease!

#21 1 year ago

I have some random dude on my pops - did the CE only get Jack?

#22 1 year ago

You have Totuga Tom. I have no idea what/who that is. LE and CE got him with the spinning pops. He can be replaced, it's just screwed on.

Jack has been installed by people by buying the Neca figures. However, they are hard as hell to come by. I have several that we will be adding to ours which can be purchased.

Davy is another Neca figure that is even harder to come by and those are generally for CE owners. I also have several of those.

The above figure is for one of the non-spinning... (non spinning.... tease ) pops.

We also have the possibility of printing 3D Davy and Jack. I mean, we have them ready to go but since we have the Neca we are offering those first because Davy and Jack are really detailed to print and we need to refine them a bit.

#23 1 year ago

Harry I'm down for the Davy Jones Neca and spinning pop. Bill me now so I dont miss out

#24 1 year ago

Marc, you're like the top customer, you have no worries!

#25 1 year ago

Ooooy boy. Can't wait to post an update. Painted some "parts" tonight and they look awesome. Trying to put all the options together so you can visually choose your "path" when ordering. Some customization you can choose here.

Bump for an update!

#27 1 year ago

The two spinning barrel final ones are printing as we speak. We made several tweaks to fitment and design. With these last two pieces I have all of the elements to paint and post a pic. I think there are 10 printed parts to make up all of the pops and they can't all be printed with the same filament so it takes a bit for each iteration. Plus we want to make sure everyone gets their chest mods quickly, so this was sort of backburner for a bit. I hope to have time to paint them in the next few days and post a pic so we can start taking orders.

Rad, but wish there was a spinning ninja star mod for Deadpool.

DP is my next machine... let's do this.

I just missed a local used DP ... I might have to buy new.

#30 1 year ago

Another well done Mod!!

#31 1 year ago

Heh, thanks. You haven't even seen it finished! I forgot to stop by home depot for some primer, but I'm gonna get them painted up this weekend.

#32 1 year ago

Not an official announcement, not an official poll but if you have an opinion on colors feel free to voice out of the front 3 barrels.

Most everyone polled so far goes for the far right. I think it's a good combination of not fake looking brown (JJP ones look a bit fake brown) and not fake shiny dark brown unlike any barrel I've seen. It makes the bands stand out, as well.

We have a few last minute changes to these now that they are painted. Need to print some new versions, keep hanging in there!

#33 1 year ago

Go a little darker on the far right and make it look a little worn instead of having a new look to it and it will be amazing! Awesome job!

#34 1 year ago

I have some ideas on the wear patterns. Updates coming!

#35 1 year ago

Allrightly... we're starting to print in batches now. I'll work on getting the sales page up this weekend so we can start taking orders. Probably still about the 2-3 week delay to ship as we produce and finish. There are 11 individual printed pieces which get hand finished and painted so each set takes a bit of time to produce. 100% infill, not hollow, plug and play.

Ready for purchase!

I'm processing some videos now so you can see the lighting and spinning action.

If you have a LE/CE you can upgrade to a full set of barrels without the needed wiring/motors. SE versions get the full kit, plug and play.

This is a nice upgrade for LE/CE which gives you a full matching set of 3D barrels which fill out the top of the pop bumpers nicely.

These barrels posted are weathered with a wood grain and worn wood look. If you prefer sharp edges without weathering or texture (I can post a pic) we are happy to do that as well. Just send me a note with your order.

Of note also is that the skull is being rotated to the left to better face the player.

#38 1 year ago

A little beating heart action.. I think this would be only white light SE models, my LE has RGB GI.

#39 1 year ago

I have an install video that is processing now. In the meantime, I made a thing...

#41 1 year ago

Is there any bulk deal if you bought all 4?

#42 1 year ago

Heh... well, I had them listed as a set and then was asked if they could be split apart so then I listed them separately. There really isn't a ton of profit in these. We wanted to sell them cheaper but with the amount of time it takes to finish a set, with all the little pieces and hand painting, it's just not that feasible. But, since we really appreciate the support from the community, anyone who wants to order a full set can PM me and I'll send them a coupon code. Check your PM

Hah, nice. I had/have DI on my list. It's tough to pick out games sometimes because I rarely get a chance to play them before I buy, hardly ever get a chance to play them for any extended period of time and you never know how it's going to workout at home with repetition. I always wanted a TAF, probably since I started playing pinball and finally got one.. sold it 6 months later. Just wasn't a great game at home. Conversely, I think JJP games make awesome home games and poor location games. I still have a tough time with the DI theme, it's already a bit dated, but still very unique and fun.
