Great pix! Let's have more with our machines. Welcome new members. If anyone has a contact to make jackets or shirts, lemme know. My guy said tshirts with large graphic on back and small on front would be between 20 and 25 bucks! I'd love to have a jacket made. I have the artists, so the graphics are no problem. .....oh poo!
Shirts would be $20-25. Jackets, I'm still waiting. My friend had embroidered jackets made up once and they were about $150.
Dennis, that would be great! When I saw Cassandra at the last Chiller Theatre convention she said she had a meeting with Jack. She said there was never another meeting. Do you have any more info on this? Would Stern possibly be interested in an Elvira pin.
And, of course, you are correct, Elvira is the Character and can be used with any cool monsters, aliens or haunted house theme.
I enjoy Scared Stiff more than MM or AFM!
Nice, Robert! Hey!...I bought one of those Terminator Toppers...how did you get it to fit the top of the machine? Did you cut off the sides?
Ahhh, cool..they modified it. I didn't get the front light and bought the red eyes myself. Never used it though. I was going to mount it to the wall and connect the eyes to the machine so they flash.
Nice! I'm still missing an Eyeball Shooter for this machine. Got just about everything else. Anybody got any cool Eyeball Ideas for meeeee?
Quoted from bluevegas:
They are actually shift knobs. Robert actually has a write up about them.http://www.robertwinter.com/pinball/ss/tech/shooter.htmlNot sure why my first pic came across so blurry and large
Are they still available somewhere? The link goes nowhere.
How do you attach it? Rod in and screw down? Thanks!
I just looked around (Google, Ebay, etc) All I could find is those shift knobs with the smeary veins look. I like yours much better.....where ARE they??
Thanks dug...but, no...those are the smeary veins I was talking about. Look up at blue's knob. (er, sorry about that!)
I was thinking that, but the few I saw for shifters were tilted down when put on a pinball rod. When you put it on a shifter it faces up, but on the machine it faces down. The hole would have to come from the back of the skull, not the bottom.....right?
Yeah, I looked all over. Can't find that exact one. All of them now have that smeary vein thing. If anyone finds the Good Ones, please let us know. I WANT IT!
Yes Wise Guy. That's where I got mine. I went for the combo. Nice quality...look great!
Hey Vinny!...let's see some pix..
And, yes, Honch, I always try to help...heh...heh...heh
I've been looking for that shooter as well. They told me they stopped making them. Where is 2 bits?
Yeah, I just mentioned it in another thread and had a few people contact me about selling it. It sold fast! I only charged what I paid for it. I'll be going to the Chiller Convention in April and can ask about another. They're not cheap though. Unless you just want the kit. I think that was $125 or something....and you're right Honch, Harriet could have probably done it. BUT...she's doing so much Real Estate business, she has no time. And that's ok...she has to keep me living in the manner I'm acc...oh never mind....
When are you coming back for another visit?
Quoted from Rum-Z:
I'm at work now Skypilot. If I was at home I'd go down to my gameroom and take a picture of my SS's serial number picture and I'd share it with you. It's pretty easy to read mine. It's mostly all zeros with a 43 on the end. It also lists the date manufactured. My machine has the early production playfield art and the early production apron art, that coupled with the 43 in the serial number, should (I say "should" - from what I think I know) indicate that the SS I have was the 43rd made (unless I'm misremembering and it's the 48th). It's 40-something for sure, LOL.
Yeah, please take a pic. I'd like to look at mine too.
I thought someone said that Plasma Thingy somehow screwed up the electronics after a while. Was it on a Xenon?
I have one of the new translites, I believe from Planetary. Looks great. Did anyone ever make repros of those other plastics?
I have to look up the place...but they have a Special where you can get both...Great stuff!
I have to admit, I cheated when my tech was over with the glass off. He yelled at me! ''It HAS to be EARNED!!'' gee....
I think I'm gonna have the legs powder coated by the Chromster! Love that green and yellow thingy he does...
Excellent! Yeah, I love those color changing/fade in and out LED's for the candle and TV!
Congrats, Dale!! Ya know, the more I look at that Spider Spinner, the more I think a great clock can be made! The rubber spiders are available...put a pointer on it. PhotoShop the Spinner art, put some numbers on there. Attach the spider to one of those clock mech thingys and frame it. hmmmm
I have some very interesting Boogie-Men replacement Monsters. I'll post a picture when I get back from trip.
Yes, herg, those are cool...and seem to be pretty well made. Buy the whole set and swap them out...
Yes, J, please let us know. (a PM is fine)
...and, by the way, I just got home...the new lady is In Da House! ...pix sooon...oh poo!
Yes! The second one goes out tomorrow. Third just got here. (used to be owned by one of Jersey Jack's guys!) Pix tomorrow as I'm on my way to Green Oblivion!
Quoted from ctozzi:
Looks great, hopefully your old one that's headed my way looks close to that one.
Oh yeah, except for that small dinker by the Crate, it's really nice! AND you got plenty of LED's in there including the super-cool slow multi color flasher behind the TV! (love it and can't wait to get it for the new SS) It's not as clean as this one, but certainly nifty! And I love the SS Poster!...I sent my extra copy! It's just a fun game all around!
Yeah! Some of the stuff is easy to repair...er, except for me. Hopefully this will be the last one....hopefully....
Quoted from idtattoo:
Go buy some basic black acrylic paint at the craft store. Mix it up with water till its about pudding or milk consistency. Dip or brush the bones in the black, wipe off the paint with a rag or paper towel. I am considering using glow in the dark paint as well on my next set after the black. It is clear when it dries and might glow better than the glow bones.
Thanks bigdaddy and tatster! I will have my wife do this. She does faux finishing, etc. Perfect!
I'd love to get the legs to Alex for Powder Coating...but I have no Pinball Equipment. I need something to lift the machine and put it on while the legs are being done. Sawhorses??
Good point!...I think the ones my wife had (that's right, she's the Toolbelt Diva, not me!) are not to sturdy...and plastic....
Yeah, I wanna play it. I have to put it up on something anyway to take the legs off. Buying a second set of legs is not a bad idea either...BUT the ones on there are brand new! ....this should be my only problem!
Nice! Where did you get the Flickering Candle Mod from. There are 2 on Ebay. One is Judge Dredds ($40 free ship)and the other at $20 more. Is it better??
I know they have a glow thingy for the Spider Hole.
There is also a mod to have the ball returned from the left side. (another thing removed for cost)
There is a TV Mod.
I saw one with those light things on the ramps.
One thing I really like is the slow fade in and out color changer LED for behind the Backglass TV. There is also a fast flicker one for behind the candle.
Ordered the Flicker Candles....AND I may just try to put them in myself! I know, I know...
Honch...I'm goin on Saturday. Beverages will be flowing! ...and cigars?
This is the second set I've ordered from Andy at Judge Dredds in the UK. (he ships fast!)
I still have to show youz the crazy ones I found. I'll try to post them tomorrow...
Somebody gave them to me when I was a guest at a film convention in Maine. Someone here said they just bought some...
Hi. Yes, I found a local one. Nice and clean. (as are my pockets!)
...and, yes, $6-7 for a super clean one with mods...
