Been working on this idea for a while now and finally got it all together. Hope you pinheads enjoy this cupholder as much as i do. Its alot of work and time to get something to this point and doing so makes me apprciate what modders do even more. Whats your thoughts of pink mutagen vs. green mutagen. Was only going to make pink but i knew there would be some saying well what about green lol.

That’s pretty nice, are you looking to sell these. I’d be interested if you do.

#3 1 year ago

I would be interested in 2 of the green versions. Name your price those are awesome.

#4 1 year ago

These aren't just for TMNT...I think they'd look great on ANY pin...starting with Total Nuclear Annihilation!

But also just about anything with a superhero/sci fi/horror theme...

#5 1 year ago

I personally love both can’t go wrong, sign me up I’ll take 1 or maybe 2

#6 1 year ago

Thanks for the interest really appreciate everyone liking them so far. Improvements/adjustments will be made to access the point to dim them if desired. If you would like one specify color and i will work through the list the best as i can.

Quoted from TheGunnett:

Yes they will be for sale.

Quoted from M1Cha3l:

Im working on a BOM and will let everyone know. These were not cheap to make and very time consuming.

They would look sick on TNA! I do plan on making various ones for other titles that i already have planned out. But need to focus on making these first for everyone.

#15 1 year ago

Would work on Judge Dredd too

#16 1 year ago

I didn't even think about the pink slime for Ghostbusters. I guess I change my order for 2 of the Green and 2 of the Pink.

Does it plug in the wall outlet, pinball game, or run off of batteries?

First and foremost, I would like to take a moment and thank everyone for the kind words, support, and encouragement as I developed these new cup holders. The response has been overwhelming to say the least. I’ve had many lessons learned from my first major project of developing and manufacturing custom hoop cup holders for NBA Fastbreak. Some of those lessons proved to be more painful than others. The biggest one reflects directly on the main question I have been receiving about these new cup holders. Simple put, how much?

After the dust had settled from the first large order and manufacturing run of the hoop holders, I did the final math and came to a disappointing answer. I had failed to break even on the materials required, not to mention the labor hours required to finish each hoop. I am all for giving back to the pinball community and while I am in no way looking to get rich off of these, losing money on each one simply doesn’t make sense.

So with this new Nuclear Lit cup holder I have been much more diligent in tracking my material cost and hours required to finish each one. And let me tell you, I’m glad I went through this exercise as these new holders have an even higher material cost and take longer to complete. It turns out acrylic tube is expensive stuff and shipping it safely adds another level of cost on top of all other materials used. I’ve contacted several other MOD makers and consulted with my local pinball group to settle on a price that covers the material and labor costs, provides enough profit to make it worth all those hours I could be spending with my young family, and is still obtainable for anyone interested in putting one on their pinball machine. All the while, I understand that no matter what price I put on these holders, some of you will be disappointed. Please know that I’ve done my best to limit material cost and reduce manufacturing time.

With all that said, the price for each Nuclear Lit cup holder will be $114.99. Orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. I have enough material on hand right now to produce 24 holders. Once that stock runs out, I will reevaluate the remaining demand to determine if another run is viable. Those that have already shown their interest I will be messaging to see if you still want one. In other words, if you want one I suggest you get your order in as this may be a one run item.

Again, a huge thank you for all the kind words so far. I wouldn’t have gotten to this level of development without them. I can’t wait to see these cup holders Lit on all of your machines.

The price is totally worth it. How do I order one of these? Amazing work my friend!

Had a special request for cherenkov radiation for TNA. It will look something like this.

I will go through the intial demand and see where we are for additional runs. If the demand is there i will continue to produce for the community. Within the next couple weeks i have some family matters to tend to. For those that want to see additional progress pics and videos follow itslitpinball on instagram and twitch.

Vat of acid design will be a seperate list going and will have an update soon its almost finished.

#41 1 year ago

An example of the cherenkov radiation

Also part of design change was to the backside of the bracket. It now has an angle on it slightly to make sure it does not rest against your machine.

#43 1 year ago

#44 1 year ago

The blue is cool but I’m still in on the pink...

#45 1 year ago

I would like one of each...a pink, green and blue please

#46 1 year ago

Are you compiling and posting a list? I posted that I want four and also sent a PM. I haven’t heard back.
Thanks for sharing these with us all. It looks like a great mod and I can’t wait to see it finished.

#47 1 year ago

Here is a preview of the vat of acid so far. Still need to do some work to it but its coming along great.

A list has been made for both the nuclear lit cup holder and vat of acid cup holder by order received in messages and interest shown here in the thread. The vat of acid will light up green on the inside and the acid on the outside of the vat will be painted. These cup holders do not require any drilling into your machine and do not require any soldering. Everything is completely reversible.

It's one of those things that you never imagined needing, but now I can't look at a regular cupholder without wanting it to resemble toxic waste.
