I recently acquired a Lectronamo with a flaky back glass. Searched for a replacement and then came across the recent Wonderwoman retheme. I was considering grabbing the same back glass after contacting the person that did it (She lives an hour drive from me) as she gave me the details on where she had it made.
At the same time I want to perhaps make mine unique. Looking at the playfield it really suits a classic comic book style and the lightning bolts had me thinking of staying in the DC Universe with a Classic Flash (Golden Age).

Thoughts?

Suggestions?

I did... thought about it as well from the lightning bolt symbols working well too.

I like having options... Thinking Flash would be a more popular... but either would work.

Anyone know where/how to template a backglass easily?

Do you have the original you can scan and then edit with Photoshop to print a translite from?

With that color scheme I'd recommend "The Ambiguously Gay Duo".

If I was a gay man... definitely.

I do have the original. I guess a good graphic designer would have a scanner capable of doing it.

I’d go with David Bowie or one of his stage characters. Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars would be a dream theme for me. That lightning bolt screams Bowie!

I think Flash could be cool.

Ziggy Stardust would be pretty cool too. Although the 'sound board' (i.e random beeps) on the machine wouldn't really do Bowie justice.

Found this sketch and thinking it could be a jumping off point for the design.

Not necessarily Flash but I cannot get a couple of re-theme ideas out of my head.

#1. Stern Iron Maiden: I want to love this game but the theme kills it for me. Would love,love,love to see Stern re-theme to a Mission Impossible or something?

#2. Spooky Rick and Morty: I sooooooo much want to like this game and I think Scott will deliver a really fun game. My problem again is the theme turns me off and I am not interested in having it in my home, especially with my children. I would love to see Spooky consider a re-theme using Scooby Doo instead. I grew up with Scooby Doo and my kids also love watching Scooby-Doo.

What you say?

To the original poster, how about the insane Stardust: The Super Wizard?

Never heard of them.
The lightning bolts look similar.
