    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    This is the rc smoke machine for the ufo , we will be the first ones with a smoking ufo for dramatic effect.
    Leds will illuminate the smoke under the ufo and after the mode,a cabinet fan will suck the smoke from the playfield real quick through the back and out the machine.
    » YouTube video

    We may have to chat more....or see who finishes first....Ive been working on smoke in a few different ways, on a champagne fire pin.....

    #102 2 years ago

    SMOKE!!

    Video or it didn't happen. Just sayin!

    Quoted from swinks:

    also that wireform if used on the launch can be like a jump a gorge or moat to get into the mansion ??? just ideas - cool theme and great following already - 77 people in a week - woo hoo
    i designed this arch ages ago, could fit nicely as a one off

    We are planning on a "dumpster dive" for the skill shot... mic bought a dumpster on ebay and we'll see how that pans out.
    Your idea is really something to consider,it ties the theme together.

    Quoted from swinks:

    cool, maybe for the translite a interactive image of a mansion with windows lighting up showing progress through the mansion and a lit window can be a ghost that is freed. I still remember from 30 odd years ago going to the Efteling's Haunted Castle with the hand and arm holding the chandelier in the main room.

    We will show our plans for the backbox next week...our thoughts aren't far apart actually,but we have an extraordinary cool toy for the backbox..

    Gaaf jongens, ik ga dit weer volgen

    #107 2 years ago

    Ohh yeah....

    Hey everybody!
    Look what a great day it is outside the gameroom.
    Mic is working overtime today so he'll join us in a few hours
    Dick has the evening shift at the bakery,so he has a sucky friday

    IMG_6740 (resized).JPG

    #109 2 years ago

    Guess what the plan is for the backbox..

    IMG_6644 (resized).JPG

    #110 2 years ago

    There are red and ted parts everywhere in this junky road show cab

    IMG_6645 (resized).JPG

    #111 2 years ago

    I am going to hit off friday evening outside,i still have the old crappy backbox from the world cup soccer(page 1 minion topic).
    I used it as a laptop table during the minion build.
    Great it is still here,now i can use it as a mock up until the new cab is ready

    IMG_6646 (resized).JPG

    #112 2 years ago

    First i need something to attach the 2 heads.

    IMG_6647 (resized).JPG

    #113 2 years ago

    One head(for some reason there is 4 heads in the roadshow parts cab) is complete with all coils and linkage,the other one only has the mouth functioning,but that is actually fine...you only have so much connections in your coil section and these heads use up a lot of them.
    Red is the complete head...and ted is incomplete...i have 2 faces though

    image (resized).jpg

    #114 2 years ago

    This is left over,including 2 bulldozer targets

    image (resized).jpg

    #115 2 years ago

    Hm..yeah..

    IMG_6648 (resized).JPG

    #116 2 years ago

    My idea was this:
    We need sort of a ringmaster in this crazy mansion,you know..to irritate you while you are playing.
    First i wanted to use one head,but 2 of something is always better!!!

    IMG_6649 (resized).JPG

    #117 2 years ago

    Hahahaha...this is going to be awesome!
    I will put a dc motor in ted's head with some axles so Ted will slowly move his eyes left and right and blink inbetween.
    Important thing is his mouth so we can add speech to his crazy personality

    IMG_6650 (resized).JPG

    #118 2 years ago

    There is plentu of room inside his crazy head to add a motor

    image (resized).jpg

    #120 2 years ago

    Thanks man,cool you like crazy

    #121 2 years ago

    Mwoehahaha!

    IMG_6651 (resized).JPG

    #122 2 years ago

    Yeah...this feels so right...
    We can totally change the appearance of these 2...weird hair,scars,etc....you know...make them really,really weird looking...

    #123 2 years ago

    Maybe use servos instead of dc motors?

    #124 2 years ago

    They should sing creepy songs and harmonize lol. They should also make fun of each other.

    #125 2 years ago
    Quoted from MarkInc:

    Yeah,i think this can be simplified by a lightyear...but just doodling with the stuff we have,i looked up the roadshow manual online and it is a fairly simple wiring.
    I just located the original print,still there.
    This connector feeds current and "reverse pulse" to the heads board.
    It just might work as it is?

    Yeah!
    They should totally sing "row your boat" but real creepy and reverbed and such.

    Mary had a little lamb.........that she STRANGLED!

    #128 2 years ago

    Like where this is heading. You could make them look like this guy...

    #129 2 years ago

    Ah man!
    Just got an awesome idea!
    What if i remove this kickback coil and we make a pipe for the ball way down through the entire cabinet,to the coin door,where a coil can free the ball at certain occasions?
    It should fall into a little bowl in front of the coindoor (an led pulsing there to indicate it is there and the patient needs a pill)(or his medication if you will).
    That pinball could be spray painted like a capsule two tone pill.
    Gameplay should halt and the head opens his mouth after he says something insane about needing his meds might you need his guidance throughout the game!
