I like to put LED's in EM's!
I love my LEDs and think you haters have a bad attitude. These are real photos, hate on them as much as you want. You won't hurt my feelings.
My honest opinion is the LEDs if done correctly can make the game look a lot more up to date and newer. Especially with a game made in the 80s or 90s. The incandescent bulbs look dull, dim, old and blow all the time. Plus they are hot and can ruin your plastics and backglass. I'm definitely not a fan of the old cheap incandescent bulbs. The LEDs are like eye candy and bring the game to life. I also feel like I see more art work, because the playfield is brighter and can also see the ball better. I can't figure out why you want the old bulbs and I've read the entire forum.
Just my opinion
One of the reasons why I read this thread is because of the funny puke pictures. That Cramer pic is hilarious.
This game was so nice before I added these puke bulbs. Sorry I screwed it up guys. I should have stayed with the incandescent bulbs.
Oh the shame! Look how nice the incandescent bulbs were. All blown and burning the plastics. Whatever was I thinking.
I'm using my own photos, but it would be easy to find the worst incandescent bulb pinball machines pics and post them. It's an easy game.
What the hell did I do to this EM. Holly Shzzt! How could anyone think of putting purple bulbs in it, when it look so great before
I have a big box of incandescent bulbs I can send you. Some are pre-blown. We can rebuild together. I think I have some old warped plastics too, that way no one will know what we did.
I know, my biggest mistake was the 2 tone powder coating and powdering the ball rails too.
Hey, I think this is working again. I got kicked off because someone wrote my machine looked like ass. Not sure if they got kicked off, maybe for a few hours or something. Anyway, I agreed with my Firepower II needing work. So I went and started changing out a few bulbs back to incandescent. I found out that because my my back glass and playfield are so beat up, that honestly the colored LED's look better. They helped hide the spidered back glass and beat up playfield. I was going to post a pic, but a couple bulbs got hot and blew out. Maybe later, hope this helps
This was on my son's card game, Exploding Kittens. Thought you guys might like a new Rainbow Puke pic for ammo.
Quoted from irobot:
Clown pukers, just be honest and admit that you like awfulness.
Some people love a meal of circus peanuts washed down with icy cold lashings of Meisterbrau. That's fine, just be man enough to admit it's disgusting.
How many times are you going to lasso the same backglass?
Is swearing allowed on Pinside? I find a lot of the pro incandescent bulb burnt out people like to curse.
I'll go ahead and post my own pictures, before you guys grab them. Here's Purple Wars, haha. In my defense, the back glass was shot before I started. I did start with all warm white LEDs, then moved to cool white and finally went with your favorite purple.
