    With my wife’s help we made some little keyfobs for my machines. I think I’ll make a board to hang them on. I don’t like them in the machines, but I do like them handy. Fun times!

    Hey, I won’t sell any as I don’t want to get into any copyright issues. But I would be happy to send you one. They are nothing to special but cool. Send me a PM with your info.

    Very nice!! Would definitely buy some.

    Very cool!

    In case anyone is interested, you can also buy Gottlieb keychains here. They don't have the cool wedgehead shapes like SteamVette's, but they do have the logos and colors. I just bought several for mine:

    Also have t-shirts, etc. with Gottlieb logos on them.

    From Wikipedia:

    "A key fob is a generally decorative and at times useful item many people often carry with their keys, on a ring or a chain, for ease of tactile identification, to provide a better grip, or to make a personal statement. The word fob may be linked to the low German dialect for the word Fuppe, meaning "pocket", however, the real origin of the word is uncertain..."

    Can you give us some info on how you made these key fobs?

    These are actually licensed and very cool! Although I like OPs wedgehead fobs better!
    Tell us how they’re made, very neat!

    Tell us how they’re made,

    They are laminated.

    Are they just pictures? They look more like renderings, I dig it

    #16 10 months ago

    They are very easy to work with. https://mondialgroup.com/gottlieb.htm

    I just took photos of my wedgheads and printed them on quality paper and laminated them with very heavy “pocket” plastic. Very easy and they really look cool hanging up. You can size them to what ever you want. You could do it with any machine. Nothing special. Just cool.

    I hate keys that are left hanging from the coin door, but I also hate having to fetch a key from across the room. Solution? Hang them on the inside edge of a leg with a magnetic hook. Super convenient.

    I like that...I usually stuff them in the coin return. This is more elegant...but with my brain I'd forget I put them there...lol

    Key fobs with pictures of the games would make it easier to see which key goes with which game. I've been planning to buy some plastic key fobs and make my own.

    Something like this where I can insert photos of my games. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/50pcs-Wholesale-Personalized-Clear-Acrylic-Plastic-Blank-Keyrings-Photo-Insert-Keyfob/32848258624.html
