UPDATE:

Jan 2023 - Have taken a break from the general making of Lit Kit Flippers. They have been a lot of fun, and require a lot of time to make with a multi day process. Looking forward to working on additional features and pinball projects.

3/30/22 Texas Pinball Festival - had a booth right up front at entrance (see last page for a video) and had a great time with fellow Pinsiders and arcade and pinball enthusiasts. Quantities were sold out at the show. Looking forward to getting Lit Kit Flippers available on more games and platforms as well. It was great opportunity for many people to see and interact with Lit Kit Flippers in person.

1/26/22 Recent additions include working on Lit Kits for Twilight Zone, Godzilla, Attack from Mars, Dr Who, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Tales from Crypt variant, the Hobbit, Street Fighter 2 and other pinball machine mods.

1/3/21 TWIPY Awards Nomination Selection - Arcade Made Lighted Pinball Flippers (Lit Kit Flippers) got on the nomination selection list for favorite pinball mod for 2021 in the TWIPY awards. Thanks for the support! It’s been fun meeting and talking with many more pinball enthusiasts around the world these past months. https://twipys.com/

12/30/21 Lit Kit Flippers are now available for many more game titles. You may check out the photos and videos throughout this thread for samples.

10/27/21 Chicago Pinball Expo Update: Lit Kit Flippers will be on display at a booth. The chairman/founder of the expo, called to say he very much liked the flippers and wanted to get them at the expo. He offered to fly me in and set me up with a booth to get them there.

Charity Auction: check out the Project Pinball silent charity auction to view all the items including a Lit Kit donated to raise funds.

Has pricing been listed and I just missed it? Are the lighted flippers for sale yet? This looks like a must have mod for several of my newer pins.

Any pics of these on a Tron?

Iron Maiden completed.

Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

KevInBuffalo Was attempting to arrange to get some photos for Tron, and planning for a left yellow flipper with clear rubber and a right blue flipper with a clear rubber, or solid yellow rubber and solid blue rubber.

#25 2 years ago

Looking for a white lighted flipper and blue rubber for AMH. Should look really good!

#26 2 years ago

I hope these are priced so it doesn't break my bank. I think they would look good on about 30 of my post 1990 games. Have you run into any games where the wiring was a problem? I'm thinking WPC pins or Stern's pins made after 1990. Games where the return guide is made of metal. I love this mod.

Here is a quick variation sample photo for an idea.

After looking at all the examples above I think the green flippers on Ghost Buster look perfect for the game theme. Green the color of slime. When they go up for sale I'll take a set in green.

Generally the way they are designed to work they have had good compatibility with many games/makes/series. The link in the first post will give you some more detailed info too.

Don’t know how you power these, but you might consider including/offering a brightness adjuster.

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Good comment, the camera can have a tough time with contrast on these, so they aren’t quite at the brightness level that can appear in photos/video in real life.

Hi all,

The Lit Kit lighted pinball flippers have been launched in limited quantities at: https://ArcadeMade.com/

More games are continually being added to the site.

If you don't see your game on the list, you may send me a message as many pinball machines made by Stern, for instance, have a similar fit, thanks

#47 2 years ago

I was afraid they were going to be $50 a set
I am out !
$25 to $30 a set I’d be in on three or four sets
But $90 no thanks

Quoted from eyeamred2u:

Thanks, Good price for these kits.

Thanks for the feedback all, and I'd received a lot of feedback prior as well from different individuals. Just attempting to make something sustainable that works well and that I could continue to do and not be overwhelmed with, as there is a lot of labor, a multi day process involved to make them and specialized parts to take into account for durability. One good thing is that they are a mod a person gets to interact with in most of the modes a person will play in.

Well, it's for fun. I'm going to end the night here playing some pinball.

Trying to check out, but you are limiting to the Contingent United States of North America and i don't live there, like most of the world. so what happens now?
