    Definitely one of the nicest “erminator” ‘s that I have ever seen

    I am willing to bet that anybody who does this to their machines, would not watch a TV set if the picture looked like this T2.

    It's T2...ON BROADWAY! Come see Ahhnoollld as he struggles with his self identity as a cyborg human killer in his past, but sees the light and comes back from the future to right his wrongs! A musical sensation sure to make you laugh, love, and cry! Tickets available for a limited time!

    Since mostly what we do is post the same LED kits by the same seller, I'll contribute.

    I was flipping through this thread, and this featured ad popped up at the bottom. MET bombers are the most shameless. To me this is like painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa. Oh, and I realize that this isn’t colored GI, but this new trend of colorizing every white insert is just as bad.

    Personally, I don’t think it looks that bad. I would stick with all white too, but it’s not even as close as bad as some other games in this thread imo.

    That makes that specific game look better imo. When they are “color coded” like that, you should really match the color with some leds.

    Quoted from wayout440:

    They gave me some heat for posting pics of my all white GI LED Maverick in the Incandescent Bulb Fan Club thread.

    wayout440 I’ve learned to embrace white LEDs for GI. The problem with buying new Sterns is that the old B/W titles start to look too dark. So I’ve adapted.

    I agree, it’s not awful. It just detracts from the playfield art, to me. But it doesn’t affect gameplay, so I wouldn’t bitch if I had to play it in league.

    #2716 1 year ago

    You, see - puking isn't going away. We are constantly seeing new products for the puker. It's not enough to puke with individual color LEDs, now we have new forms of LED strips and sticks that can be shoved in any corner of the game, along the sides, along the back, in the outhole, and even in the shooter lane.

    I have this mod on my Metallica. I think it looks awesome. Now, let's get this thread back on topic, which is where we whine like girls about how other people like their machines to look..... Thanks.

    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    almost there. Pull the rest of the blues out and it will look even better.

    Definitely planning on it. Just pending an order. I used some extra I had on hand and ran out.

    It’s probably because it hurts there eyes to play it.

    Exactly. Why can't a white insert stay white? Why does the entire playfield have to look like a rainbow? Can we expand this club to include no rainbow puking of white/clear inserts? What's wrong with a little white on some of the inserts?

    I realize the trend now is color changing RGB LED's and everything has to have pulsating color. I like old games and not be overloaded with color.

    this is not that offending, for 2 reasons.

    1. It's an insert and isn't effecting your ability to see the ball.

    2. What you are illuminating is pretty much one solid color already, so you are not destroying much as far as art goes. But you will lose the scale detail in the fish by doing this, as now....instead of having contrast, and accentuating the scales. you will now bury them with background lighting into a solid panel of color.

    MGC had some horrible offenders of Colorpoop. But more were done correctly than were not. I only saw 3 major offenders that would make stevie wonder cry.

    That Popeye is such an absolute shame because it is almost as if the game was made for cool white LEDs. I bought a filthy routed one and went through and cleaned it up and it was beautiful with cool white GI. The best part is that it wasn't a kit that cost me $200 plus either. Win/win.

    I very much agree. Really brings out the art.

    #2746 1 year ago

    I don't know how ANYONE can look at the left picture of the Popeye game soaked in purple and blue color, and think that it looks better than the right. All the artwork is darkened and obscured.

    In fact the one on the left... looks like a big purple&blue blinding turd . How to destroy nice pinball art.
