    I LOVE a nice and amazing official Topper, who doesn't? But what I do love EVEN MORE is a unique, crazy and original cheap topper! Share with us yours or whatever crazy home / custom / random / self made Topper you have encountered over the years that you feel it's worthy of mention!

    Not only the most bizarre and "what the.." ones, but also the most AMAZING well crafted as well! Because let's face it, we all have seen better toppers done by pinball lovers more than the Official ones!

    It's just for fun, giggles and to cheer the ones that are really impressive, that's all!

    Negative comments will not be appreciated. Please be responsible.

    Here we go!

    I will start with these examples I found on the internet! All very creative and resourceful! I do believe they are clever! The Topper box cracked me up!

    You can ask all you want. You can't dictate behavior in a thread, which you attempted to do, since you're not a Mod.

    To be honest my friend, I don't see your point in starting a debate with me on something so pointless on a thread about cheap Toppers. But whatever floats your boat. Thanks anyways for being here and I hope you enjoy it.

    I made my own Godzilla topper.

    #12 1 year ago

    I just finished my last one.

    I get that people don't like it when the logo on the backglass and topper are close together and near identical but I think the Godzilla one still works and advertises the game well. And the JP logo is so small on the original backglass that it doesn't seem redundant to me.

    Or course it does!! Hanging the space ship above the Pinball I believe it's not only logical, but really smart! Nice! Do they light up? That would be cool if you wired the spaceship with the Pinball to interact with it!

    You made it? The rotating King Ghidorah is freaking cool! Actually it's way more original than the official I believe, so Kudos for that! I saw a bunch of Godzilla Toppers recently, mostly custom made and others non-official but they are really cool! I will share the ones I have found:

    Lots of great homebrew toppers.

    #25 1 year ago

    Not really intended to be a topper, but it worked. I am working on a cool one for FF however.

    The Munsters figures cost me $10 each from a Dollar General back in the day. So all-in I may have $60 into the project.

    Definitely worked!!! Your upside down Grandpa it's the best! You can actually use some Led strips from Comet Pinball and wire them with the Pinball to interact with the game if you want! https://www.cometpinball.com/products/lighting-strips

    Now with the release of the limited 500 hundred James Bond Toppers that are already sold out, I believe it would be a great opportunity to see new ones created by all of you! Who knows? I think a lot of Bond owners are going to be left out and they will want a Topper for sure! Let's see what we can find! Mr Mrsiyufy created one really cool with spinning arms that he shared previously here. I gather other ones that I have found along the way! Anyone who has seen others please feel free to share!

    Why so much hate? The only thing you do is downvote, complain and criticize. Who hurt you that much in your life? You realize it's a thread about cheap toppers right? Enjoy

    And yes, I know as a guitar player FF don't play Marshall Stacks...but I do. And I think they did on the first two tours/albums.

    I can't wait to see all the custom Toppers for the new Venom. They have a lot of awesome statues on the market to make something really cool!

    Always loved this one for how well it goes with the Pinball itself! Creates an illusion and makes you feel more "in the game" universe. I know it's not considered "cheap", but it's such an impressive one that I think it was worth sharing because it's a perfect example for a well integrated theme plus well crafted art piece and adds another layer on the feel and look of the pinball visual aesthetic.
