I think I'm ready to take the plunge... Should I start with SW premium, MMR, MET pro or TOM?
Also, it looks like UV Glow and GI plug in is the way to go?
What is that available option for pinball name?

Quoted from pinstadium:

If you have the GI figured out, then you can just reference the left "Flasher" side of the picture.

Yes, because the GI pics do not coincide with each other!

I too have some sweet video of IMDN with Orion's Belt dialed in! It's a helluva light show and adrenaline rush to say the least. I'll extend a cordial invite to anyone who'd like to see it in person(Bring Coors Light).

Now I'm trying to figure out which game is next???

Star Wars already has Pin stadium and is amazing with the UV flasher.

I ordered the Orion's Belt with Metallica in mind, but I'm not sure if I want to mount on top of the Power Bladez.

So I'll have 2 sets of Pin Stadium lights to mount and 1 Orion's Belt. CFTBL, MMR & ToM could all use some light.

Whatever I decide will fantastic, and a BIG Thanks to Scott for his products and unparalleled support!

Just received my 2nd batch of OB! It's shaping up to be a Pin Stadium day. I need to install some pinblades on MMR and CFTBL first. What's everyone's preferred method to make that install pain free? Oh and flasher ideas for those games?

#3570 11 months ago

Thank you! I have sprayaway and sparkle handy, I imagine they'll work fine. I guess I won't be doing the Pin Stadiums today unless I decide to brighten up ToM, which could really use it!

I can vouch for the IMDN light show!

What are the recommended flashers for Star Wars?
I think it would make sense to Orion's Belt on that and put Fusion on Metallica when it arrives. I already have Power Blades on MET, so the lower profile is preferred.

Quoted from pinstadium:

Here are some good Before and After pics of Star Wars. Dwight has even ordered a set for his SWLE! What an incredible game and the results with the GI improvement and also the UV+Glow on this game is superb!

While there are "darker" games out there, Pinstadium takes SW to a whole new level! It was the first game that I installed them on. I recently added Orion's Belt and the it's like it was meant to be. Being able to hone in on the "deep space blue" color is just what the Jedi ordered!

#3690 9 months ago

And now on with the show! CFTBL is an ideal candidate for Pinstadium. Before/After
I think I'll brighten up ToM today!

That's a day in the life in case you guys ever wonder what the mad scientist laboratory has going on inside of it.

Don't forget about the time you spend replying to text messages and emails to help navigate your customers through jams so they get the best possible experience!

Quoted from pinstadium:

The post office does do this sometimes and it goes in limbo for generally 48-72 hours then it “magically” appears on your doorstep.

I was expecting my fusions yesterday too. The same thing happened with my last set of Orion's Belt. It must be the shipping tubes your using. Perhaps there a way to make them more aerodynamic?

Are you gonna talk or are you gonna fish? What a beauty!!

The Pinsatdiums have a greater impact than the Color DMD IMO, but I chose to spring for both on almost every game. It's not cheap, but nothing in pinball is ever cheap or easy! The GI integration is a must, and the UV glow for most games. You might also consider Orion's Belt or Fusion for some games!

Quoted from mandelbloom:

I am going to need advice on where to tie my flashers in ...

No Good Gofers
Stern SW
Metallica(clearly sparky insert)

I have Orion's Belt with Pin Stadiums on SW & IMDN, and Fusions on MET. You might want to consider this upgrade if you haven't already ordered...especially on these 3 pins!

When did you order yours? I'm dying too get mine. Hopefully I am close.

I ordered mine on 6/5, they shipped Monday and are out for delivery today!

I installed my first set on FT yesterday. They work as advertised, and I won't need to remove them to lift the playfield!

I didn't have a lot of time, and I really don't have a lot of patience, so...

I opted to go with the alternative 2 mounts vs 3. I needed to go with a sneak in on the left side and mounting the tallest one on either side would've been a challenge.

Adjusting the height is key once you find the ideal spot. You have to clip the hover in a spot where there's no chip, but you also must be certain that you have clearance to slide the glass back on as the clip sits slightly higher than the light bar. Oh, and clipping off the small section of invisishield was a breeze.

I managed to crack one of the small mounts by over tightening the screw(something Scott warns of in the install instructions!). it was just a small piece that broke off, and it still works fine. My lack of patience was likely the root cause.

One thing I'm not crazy about is the contrast of the yellow pin blades along the top. This is partially due to a less than perfect install of the blades, but I ask you this:

Would you run an exacto knife or box cutter along the top of the light bars and remove the small strip of yellow pin blade? I know it's not a huge deal, but I think it would be a cleaner look.

Next up: Fusions on IMDN, followed by MMR or CFTBL!

Thanks for the tips!

Oh yeah! I removed the magna-mounts from the sides of the machine with very little effort. The magnets remain on the light bars because I had previously secured them with expoy.

I used a bulb from the left slingshot for a GI connection, and it works fine.
