The creation of the gru decal

The custom mech for the fartblaster mode works!!

#853 3 years ago

Oh yeah! Awesome,invented on the fly

image_(resized).jpeg

#854 3 years ago

This is how the purple minion mode is going to work in the future

#855 3 years ago

Nice work guys ... the family is following along on this one and are excited to see it all done. You guys are having lots of fun and that is cool.

Thanks, nice to hear it's entertaining

The mansion will have real rooms with diorama stuff...you know, including wallpaper and stuff.
This is the first floor under construction.

#859 3 years ago

Ofcourse we sourced the girls on ebay.

The door-o-matic is installed, just needs some juice,the door is pulled back by a spring,voila.

The door mech in action!

#863 3 years ago

Now it's time for game of thrones LE!

Guys I've been sitting back and following since the beginning. This is now turning into something I look forward to at the end of the week! It's better than any kind of weekly TV show because with all your creativity and "screw it, let's do it" (R. Branson) approach, we never know what to expect next!

Nice work all around, and I'm not even a Minions fan. Great to see people having fun while building something so unique!

I think next Friday I'll pop some buttery microwave popcorn before I read the updates.

What about purple trim around the DMD? To blend in more with the other window trim? The Stainless frame is awesome but in its shiny awesomeness maybe it takes a little away from the details on other windows?

Keep up the great work,
Cheers, Tom

Thanks Tom,awesome that you enjoy it so much.
We might wrap the dmd trim too,it indeed will make it a whole with the windows.
We have a group meeting about that next friday, thanks for the feedback!

#867 3 years ago

Thank you marseille,France!

And because the waiting on ghostbusters LE is getting harder and harder...

image_(resized).jpeg

#870 3 years ago

What better way to start this friday with a succes story..after some tweaking, we got the door-o-matic mech going!
Shoot the purple hole and the door opens.
Pay attention to the evil creature behind the door!

#871 3 years ago

Ok time to install a magnet, what's a pinball without a magnet right?
Here you see our powertool at work, making space for the magnet

image_(resized).jpeg

#872 3 years ago

It's a thin line , if i shave too much off, the metal sticks out too high on the other side of the playfield

image_(resized).jpeg

#873 3 years ago

Hm, that might work

image_(resized).jpeg

image_(resized).jpeg

#874 3 years ago

Now the centre hole for the magnet

image_(resized).jpeg

image_(resized).jpeg

#875 3 years ago

Yup just fine...made a spacer for the magnets bracket,the wcs ball lock playfield was a lot thicker

image_(resized).jpeg

image_(resized).jpeg

#876 3 years ago

There he is, our new magnetic friend

image_(resized).jpeg

#877 3 years ago

The metal is exactly level

image_(resized).jpeg

#878 3 years ago

A new metal rail installed,so the ball can pass through the playfield or gets sucked into lock by the magnet

image_(resized).jpeg

#879 3 years ago

Just a thought, to slow down the ball a bit traveling through the subway layer

image_(resized).jpeg

#894 3 years ago

Meanwhile i am starting on this 2.1 speaker set, about time to unpack it!

image_(resized).jpeg

#895 3 years ago

They fit real good over here, the sound will be blasting out of gru's house

image_(resized).jpeg

#896 3 years ago

Made a bracket for them, they are very light, no need to bolt them on in a complicated way

image_(resized).jpeg
