    Love LEDs but I’m trying to figure out when a pin would call for red/blue/green color changing LEDs?

    Mode based pins, or are you referring to non addressable RBG?

    I can see using them in SS backglasses, but I wouldn’t want them anywhere near a playfield

    There are two places where I've seen them used effectively that I can recall:

    Sinbad backglass on the wizard's magic spark.

    Genesis's plain white pop bumpers.

    Ah, then i would say backboard lighting on music pins.

    I don’t think an art department failed more on a great pinball machine like what they did to Genesis.

    An RBG pin could be pretty cool.

    The RGB GI in the Monster Bash remake (SE and LE) is pretty cool. This is coming from someone that only puts white bulbs in GI when I redo a game. MMr has the kit available and it comes on their new editions SE/RE) as well.

    I'm a little more lenient with lighting. I'm at 90% white and a little color hidden in the back or sides.
    Just installed the RGB kit on a MMRLE for a friend. He loves it. I haven't made up my mind yet. I'm so used to the game being all white I don't know if I like it yet. Was thinking it needs some spot lights for the center. Now for MBRLE it works great! AFMRLE is pretty good too.

    I'd suggest a Supreme. The entire left side.

    I bought a few while ago and I'm pretty stumped myself. Bought one game with it in the credit light button on an early solid state, guess as good a place as any. maybe a game like time fantasy?

    Gosh how clever

    I have a couple behind Alt Shadow Back Box, at the city scape level.
    They are flex heads, and look like the buildings are popping/on fire/explosions, in the distance.

    Making the magician's diadem change colors on my Pinball Magic's back glass is magical!

    #16 35 days ago

    I used them on a DE time machine - 2 flex heads behind the jukebox , kinda captured that old bubbling jukebox vibe

    Trying to lure o-din back? He may find the mashup of Supreme + LEDs irresistible.

    These are best used sparingly. I put 2 or 4 bulbs in my Whirlwind in the very back corners. These were the "quick changing" not fade between color lights. The end result and covered up one of the 4 colors so the bulbs periodically went dark. The end result was a subtle flashing effect in that area. The strip light I put above it overpowered the effect a little, but I thought it looked very cool and was a cheap mod.

    The 20 to 40 second mark of this video (not made for the purpose) shows the effect.

    Totally worth $4.
