$150 for the V1 and $200 for the V2 with the fader is what Jay charged for them.

Might? God man commit!
They were running 225 shipped if I remember. I think I recall parts were getting hard to source. Could be wrong.

#607 2 years ago

I've been waiting since September.

#608 2 years ago

Parts are less than 30dollars, just a pain in the ass to make as you can see by my failed attempts on the previous page. The 30mm glass spheres even come with the red base on ebay for like 4 dollars each. the bracket is 10, and the led and led mount is like 5. Its just a matter of getting the right angle with an eye of sauron picture. Then get a bright single led most likely needing to be diffused a little and glue them all together. I am an electronics guy not a crafts person so I am sure somebody can make one of these successfully.

Who is going to Pinburgh/ReplayFX??

I've got another V6 that is ready and I also found a V5 from the "vault". I will bring them both.

The V5 has the mirroring (so the eye mostly disappears when it isn't lit). This is my favorite looking version of the Palantir, although it isn't as durable as the V6 Valinor. Both have the fader modules. First person person to find me gets their choice of which one they want (only one Palantir though per person)

The best thing to do is Check his webpage, daily, weekly. About every 6 months or so he will list 6-10 with no fanfare or prior notice. It's how the last couple batches have been sold, over the past year. Several of us got lucky. By the time a post is made here, they can all vanish. To date I haven't seen any hoarders, he may to only allow 1 purchase at a time.
Good luck gang.

#623 2 years ago

Haven’t tried it myself but apparently there are services that will alertt you when a website changes/updates. Might be worth giving one of those a try.

#624 2 years ago

Pm sent a little while back: me (twenty) too please!

#625 2 years ago

I’ll take 2. One for me and a friend, if you’ll make some more. Please do!

#626 2 years ago

I'm planning to have a small batch ready and available on Saturday October 13th at the White Rose Gameroom show in York, PA. Please come out and help support this event and our pinball community! I will be in the IFPA tournament area all day but these will be available first come, first served. More details are available on the website www.theyorkshow.com, Facebook page www.facebook.com/theyorkshow/ and various threads here on Pinside.

Thanks!
-Jay

#627 2 years ago

Sooo anyone going to the York show and want to scoop one of these up for me? Would be greatly appreciated! Shoot me a pm if you are headed to the show. Thanks.

#628 2 years ago

I'd also be happy to PayPal anyone that can pick one up for me at the show.

Quoted from T2F14:

Me too. My Eye Palantir mod broke in half. I'm trying to 2 part epoxy back together. Anyone have any luck putting one of these back together? Or does anyone have one of these for sale?

[quoted image][quoted image]

all you need is the same size globe and base and some epoxy, that's a easy fix. you can reuse the light part, just cut around light fixture with razorblade, remove broken glass,buy new globe (same size) and reglue!

I would like one of these. Any plans on making a few more in the near future?

#633 1 year ago

Jay I am in for another when you make these again. I think I had your original a loooong time ago.

#634 1 year ago

I would 1 if you ever make them again.

#635 1 year ago

You can add me to the list jay,
if you have the time and willing to make these again.

#636 1 year ago

There's no list, and no point in asking to be added to it. This post describes the situation well:

[EDIT] That said, his website also appears to be down, so who knows what the plan will be for distributing these in the future.

https://changetower.com/ Used this about a year ago to get notified when Jay puts them up for sale

#638 1 year ago

Been trying to get one for over a year and just about gave up on it. Glad there is someone else making them now. Looks like my wait is almost over.

Who is making them now?

#640 1 year ago

Normally I wouldn’t post a competitor’s product in a thread like this, but since it’s not clear that jrobinso99 will be making these again:

[jrobinso99, if you see this post and don’t care for it just shoot me a PM and I’ll scrub it,
I don’t want to crap on your thread if you plan to sell more of these some day]
