Pinbits does as part of their protector sets. They list the single piece as sold out but you may want to email them if you just want the one piece and see what they say. http://www.pinbits.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_74&zenid=73d04f815ad5125b2757ead7e4343950

Glenn MacLean -- You really have outdone yourself on this one -- Amazing -- True art and I know this took alot of time -- Just for you folks out there -- I was told that he spent over 85 hours of work between these two pieces -- Amazing -- Worth every penny.

#121 7 years ago

I guess we will call it the Demon Sparky -- I don't know what else to call it -- Any ideas from anyone out there on a name??

#122 7 years ago

Glenn is a good buddy of mine. His artistry never fails to amaze me.

I think that's gotta be the best Sparky I've seen yet by ANYONE. Great work Glenn! MacLean

#123 7 years ago

Those are some amazing looking sparky's. Very jealous.

#124 7 years ago

How much is a "spare" Sparky? I think I want to keep my original.....then paint up the spare one

#125 7 years ago

They buy these for $195,- + ship

I reinforced his eyes with several thin wires & epoxy ... so he's virtually bulletproof. I just refuse to do the simple Sparky's anymore. These are just way too much fun to create!

Thanks to Aurich for the kind advice!

Is someone willing to make my sparky look like Violator from spawn or a WW1 soldier

#134 6 years ago

I would like my wife (who has an Etsy store with custom mirrors and does do some painting), to paint my Sparky. She was wondering what sealer was being used for the best results. Thanks.

Bre painted this one for me. I put UV flashers in the spotlights to pick up the fluorescent paint on the old school “Metal Up Your A$$” shirt.

I shot a video of Sparky in action. The UV bulbs are from Titan_Pinball and the paintwork was from @BRE.

I shot this pretty low to capture the effect better. At playing angle, you don't see the neck hole.

First 25 seconds I'm like... looks okay, not seeing much... then 26 second mark, BOOM! Awesome, looks really cool!
