Friend of mine on here is making a different hammer for Metallica premium/LE.
spinny-vinny is his pinside name.

This is the prototype,still need to make some fitment changes.
Then it will get custom painted and tested on my LE.

Gauging interest before he makes more.
Or suggestions for other versions.
Original and Aurich hammer shown for scale.

You are quick,I forgot to add them

#5 2 years ago

I'd be in for one for my pro.

#6 2 years ago

That has some strong potential. Count me as interested.

Quoted from Twilight1:

I don't think it will work on a pro,no handle mech for it.
Maybe we can figure out how to mount one there.

#8 2 years ago

I'm interested depending on price.

Yes was hoping you could make a pro model. If not I'd be interested in buying one and trying myself. So I'm in!

I'm definitely interested in a hammer mod for my MET Premium, but not a big fan of this (or any generally) skull design. My preference would be for a more basic looking hammer similar to Aurich's.

That said, I'm sure this mod will be very popular and wish to thank you and your friend for developing this!

#12 2 years ago

Perfect for the Monsters edition in particular. Nice work!

#13 2 years ago

I don't own a Met but I like it better than the others out there.

I'm sure he can do that as well.
Open to suggestions

#15 2 years ago

I'd be in and I don't even own this title....YET!

#16 2 years ago

I like it. The skull crushing finale. I'd be in at a reasonable price.

#17 2 years ago
Quoted from Twilight1:

Why do you want a non-functional hammer on a Pro, just for looks?

#18 2 years ago

Dan, I'd be in for sure......looks like a great addition.

#19 2 years ago

I'm in , price pending price

Since you asked. I would prefer a cleaner version. One where it is just wood grained and has the rivots. Only potential problem with that is it would be getting super close to the version Aurich did. His contact apparently is never going to do this as it seems to be dead in the water. Maybe you two could work out a deal to basically mold his version and make a few minor changes to it.

I'd bet you and your friend would sell a ton of them like that.

#21 2 years ago

the one with the spikes is f'en awesome!! Nice work. I'm in one of those for sure.

Well if he can't make it move I'd pay way more. But I'd take a stationary.

#23 2 years ago

I'm guessing seeing it painted up would blow more minds. Vince's work is second to none.

#24 2 years ago
Quoted from MacLean:

The one with the spikes is Aurich's hammer.
I bought that a few years ago.
No longer available,only 30 made.
We would not copy his design,Vince would do his own thing.

#25 2 years ago

Agree maybe paint the prototype

#26 2 years ago

Here are some more prototypes,still test fitting and Vince needs to paint them up.
Vince has a fist,traditional hammer and the skull hammer in the works.
Thinking of adding LED's to the skull version,just adding a led strip inside to light it up,cut out the eyes in the skull.

I'm in pending price

#28 2 years ago

Ditto! Would love a price for the skull and hammer.

Don't know pricing until he has one completed.
They all will be hand painted.

Well sign me up as interested. I'd like to see how those two land painted and installed. Not too keen on the fist but that's just my personal taste. The other two look great. With some sick paint apps it could really put them over the top.

Looking sweet, any chance for pics in the game? Pricing with shipping to the states available yet?

#34 2 years ago

I might be on for a regular hammer painted. That looks great

#35 2 years ago

Love the skull hammer. You definitely should do a pro run.

#36 2 years ago

Nice Work, great detail on the skull.

#37 2 years ago

Tough choice. Both look great and are a vast improvement over the stock hammer. I think I like the skull a bit better.

#38 2 years ago

Never mind, I have nothing to do with this mod and I'll keep it that way.

#39 2 years ago

In for a regular hammer

#40 2 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Yeah, my friend flaked out on me, and he has other stuff to worry about so I stopped pushing. And frankly I've had other stuff to worry about myself, Alien kinda sucked up all my pinball mod time.
My attitude is that I had my window to do it, I didn't, and if someone else wants to step up and fill that void I can't possibly be mad about it. I wish this project nothing but luck and success with my blessing if anyone cares about that.

Hi Aurich,

Love your design,Vince didn't want his to look anything like yours.
It's special And going back in my game after these are tested.

#41 2 years ago

Here are some pictures in my game.

Not much for modding but this has my interest.

#43 2 years ago

Those are pretty slick looking. Would be interested in skull variant.

#44 2 years ago

Looks cool. I'm interested.

#45 2 years ago

Very nice! Not sure if I can decide between the 2 but I think I'm leaning toward the skull version.

#46 2 years ago

Those both look great. Count me as interested!

#47 2 years ago

Does the skull block any visibility while playing since it's a tad larger?

Any idea on pricing yet?

#48 2 years ago

Liking the second one. Hopeful the price is reasonable.

#49 2 years ago

Those are just SIIIIICK!

I love the LEDed skull version. Do the LEDs only light when the hammer lock is ready?

#50 2 years ago

Both look very cool! DEFINITELY interested in purchasing one.

Will unpainted be a purchase option?

Thanks!
