Quoted from MustangPaul:

I bought just the tl because it was so cool and I have been watching the thread and was just wondering how many packages have you sold. If that's a no-no question just say "a lot".

It's not that I mind sharing, just maybe better to not post numbers publicly. Probably over cautious, but a lot more than I ever expected to that's for sure. I thought it would be 10.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

I hate LED's in a Backbox. Just to hotspotty. I like that nice even distribution of light.

I haven't tried LEDs with your "so few" method, but I don't have any issues with mine notspotting now. The cool white just pops the colors so much more true, I don't like the yellowed artwork.

I will have to check back in a few weeks.
As you know I am a new member to the Shadow club or will be.

I will have to see how the game looks in my lineup. But your translite is one of my favorite 2 ever made for this title.
If I do go with anything other than original I will pm you.

#854 5 years ago

I don't mind you uploading the cards. Go for it!

Sure thing. Only thing I'm gonna say is that I have a limited number left, and I don't know how long they'll last. I can never tell, every time I think surely it must be done I'll get 3 people PMing me about it. Once they're gone my only option will be to do a 4th run, and that's gonna require a minimum number of people to do. At some point it's gonna get harder to get that group.

I just don't want you to decide you really want it too late is all.

So far people seem cool with it, I'll wait a bit for any more opinions, don't want to make anyone unhappy.

#857 5 years ago

I have no problem with you sharing the cards.

Now once you start giving away free translites; we will know that the well has run dry (and every Shadow will have seen the last of Baldwin).

Cheers Aurich.

ps: I think your new translite is the cause of this "Polar Vortex" descending upon the South. The Shadow is rising and bringing cold and darkness to the land. The Sun is shining but the ice is slippery!

Quoted from PBFan:

Heh. Of course as I discovered the real challenge is getting them printed right once you have the art!

#859 5 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

So here's my question, would the people who are buyers be annoyed if I uploaded the files to give away for free? I guess I could alter them somehow so they were different, I just wonder if it matters.
Weigh in if you don't mind!

The hobby has become entirely too monetized across the board, and as such, I'll always support any kind of sharing with the community.

Upload them bastards, I say!

I agree, if it's cool to agree in a thread where I'm selling something.

I did new cards for my Scared Stiff and shared those, I have some nice Jurassic Park ones that I just need to fix the size on (don't have a JP and didn't realize the DE cards were a different size than the Williams ones!) and I'll upload those too. I should start a thread for that actually. Made them for a friend and he told me they were the wrong size but he never got around to measuring for me.

Are you going to pm people on the list when it comes time to pay up?

#862 5 years ago
Quoted from Spraynard:

Are you going to pm people on the list when it comes time to pay up?

Yes sir, I'm just waiting to make sure the print order is really going first, I don't want to sit on people's money longer than I have to. The way I try and time it while the order is finishing and shipping to me I'm asking for payment. Generally I need that whole time to get everyone's, not everybody is super fast to respond. Then when the package gets to me I break it down and ship to everyone who's paid.

The order is in, I'm talking to the printer, I'm just not sure it's actually started yet. I'll see if I can get an estimate.

#863 5 years ago

I can't wait !

Same here

#865 5 years ago

I saw this translite recently at a local pin party "lit up" in all its glory and WOW does it blow doors off of the old artwork!!

Bravo to aurich for a job well done. Lookin forward to updates on the acdc translite

#866 5 years ago
Quoted from Phatchit:

Heh, I'm ready to get this out to you guys too. We're just a little behind schedule, mostly because of the freakish weather everyone in the country has been feeling except us. My printer's shop (and whole city apparently) was shut down for 2 days because of a blizzard, which in CA is like saying that you had to close the office because a herd of bigfoot were camping on the roof. Equally crazy sounding!

Anyways, they're trying to get everything back on track, and as soon as he can give me an estimate for being done I'll will pass it along. And at that point I'll send out the PM with payment instructions too. I appreciate that people keep asking me if they can give me money, but I don't want to ask for it until I know we're close.

I need to order more shipping boxes and stock up on tape, I go through rolls of the stuff now.

Thanks! I know I saw you at Robert's, but not sure if we actually formally met or not.

I probably shouldn't have teased AC/DC, it's just hard to not want to put it up to see what people think. Plus there's a story behind it and Stern's Luci, and it's kinda killing me. I'm still tweaking some minor details though, and waiting for the test print, so trying to to be patient. If you were to PM me your email address I might send you a sneak peek though. Because being patient sucks!

#868 5 years ago

Printing update: The prints are in progress now, the run has started, they're just working on reprints for ones that didn't meet the quality standard. Should ship to me by the end of the week. I'm going to PM everyone shortly with the payment instructions.

We'll see if anyone drops out when I PM, but I do have two slots left that haven't been claimed since I upped the print run number at the last minute. So if anyone is on the fence shoot me a PM.

Got a photo of the AC/DC test print, excited to light it up in person. Working on a non-translite thing too that goes with it, but too early to say if it's gonna work out or not.

#869 5 years ago

Just sent all the PMs with instructions. Ping me if you have questions. Thanks!

#870 5 years ago

Thank you everyone who's already sent in payments. Looks like I'm having a slightly higher cancelation rate this run than usual (one person had a great excuse, he just picked up a Shadow and my translite was already on it) so I'm definitely going to have some extras for anyone who comes in late.

Better that than having to turn people away, so don't worry about it.

Ooops! Wrong thread.

Did a little trading with Mike Chestnut, art for chrome, ooh shiny!

#873 5 years ago

Just heard from the printer, order should be shipping to me tomorrow. Will update when I have a tracking # and a date.

I've probably received around 75% of the payments so far. If you want me to ship yours out when I get the order and break it down get your payments in, I'll try and turn it around as fast as I can.

I dunno who's even still reading this long ass thread of mine.

Me for one!

No problem at all. Personally I think you need all the pieces but the cards might be useful for someone on their own. Plus we can keep the file in case we ever damage the cards ourselves.

#875 5 years ago
Quoted from Paul_S:

Hadn't thought of that, good point.

Sounds like no one objects, so I'll try and get to that.

#876 5 years ago

Shipping update: Got a tracking number, I'll have the prints next Wed.

Waiting to hear from 7 people still about payments, if we've talked already about paying later you're good.

Anyone who's paid up by then will get their package shipped by end of next week.

#878 5 years ago

So one PM'd to ask if I still have extras. I do have a few even if everyone left pays up.

I've gotta say, the play count on my Shadow on location at Young Loud and Snotty record shop
in the area has gone up since installing this art package upgrade.

So awesome, I love it.

Saw this translite in person and it's awesome! I played so much Shadow this weekend at INDISC and we had to take off the sign on it so we could see the full translite - awesome work Aurich!

Sweet. It looks quite dark, which I like. I've read somewhere else on here about nickel as well - is that the dark one perhaps.

Nice, I made the Orange photo roll.

Sorry I couldn't make it out to INDISC to meet up, hope it was fun. Football superseded watching the A finals, I only caught the round before on PAPA TV.

You're thinking of the black nickel. No, mine is straight up chrome, mirror finish, and bright, but it's so shiny it picks up all the dark reflections around it, like the cabinet itself.

#888 5 years ago

I've heard from everyone on my list but one. Where you at waynetrane?!

Looks like I have 4 left over after people dropping out. I'll just hold onto them for the moment in case I get last minute orders or there's a problem than needs an extra.

Thanks everyone.

How could any young teen from the 70's not have seen this movie at least a dozen times? It was the second feature for The Song Remains the Same, but to see this on the big screen with it's incredible animation just blew me away. Of course it took about 5 watchings before I really knew what it was about.

what the hell movie is that from? Looks like my wife in cartoon version.

Found it. Can't believe I've never seen this before.

Wizards

Ralph Bakshi's follow up to Wizards was The Lord of the Rings.

I have the prints.

I'll start packing them up and printing shipping labels tonight. Plan is to take them to the post office in the morning. If I can't finish them all tonight then I will tomorrow.

#897 5 years ago

I think I'll get stoned, watch Wizards, and then go take what's left of my money and buy Nimblepins Shadow that already has the new and improved translite. That or I may end up at Chris and Pitts.

I'm down with the first two parts of your plan, and I don't want Nimblepin's Shadow but I really need to get over there to check out his WOZ still.

#899 5 years ago

No Chris and Pitts? Yummy!

Got it, thanks. I'll probably do the same and would love some jade grips. Now where to get those?
