New Pinball Half Black Half Chrome!!!

Got it up on the website now. The new ball is half black and half chrome. This ball looks awesome in play. I had it on test at the Chicago Expo and got great feedback from people. Best feedback I heard was that it was easy to follow. No longer should the ball being all black be a problem to see. This ball almost flashes as it rolls. Hope everyone likes the new ball and I will have a lot of other updates in the next few weeks. Thanks!

Spider man Wall art all done!!!

Finished up the wall art just in time for the expo (thanks to my awesome laser engraver). Thanks Stacy! They were a big hit and everyone loved them. They are about 2 feet tall and about 10 in wide. They are made from mirrored red and black arcylic and have a web design laser etched into them, along with another layer of solid black or gray acrylic glued on top of that in the shape of a half spider. We will have them on the website to purchase in a few days with all the final detail pics and sizes. Till then here are a few pictures of what they look like.

2 New Paintings Done!!!

Finished up the Buba Fett for Rob who I got to meet at the expo and was very nice. Thanks for the work Rob, hope you enjoy the painting. Also finished up a Spider man painting. It is for sale and is 16x 20 and I will sell it for $40 plus shipping.

Spider Man plastics are on there way!

Laser, laser, laser! Getting all the Spider Man plastics lasered out for expo. Thank You Stacy!!!!! :)

Final touches on LOTR Hardware

Finished up the hardware last night but need to take the machine into the paint booth to get some good pictures of it. The lighting in the front room is bad for detail pictures and showing true colors. None the less to a few sneak peak pics of it on the game, but keep in mind they were not the best pictures of it. I will have better pictures in a few days and it will be on the website as well.

LOTR Hardware update, Siderails

Simpsons Glow in the dark Radioactive Green Hardware!!!

Just got the green and the glow in the dark laid out on the 2 sample pieces. The green is perfect and really looks like a Cartoon Radioactive Green color. ( sorry the picture does not do it justice) I have some more testing to do on the glow in the dark factor. It glows just fine in the dark but when you turn on the game the playfield lights drown out the glow. Looks awesome when not on but not sure if the glow would be worth the money. Ether way I will be offering the Radioactive Green color for the Simpsons and I believe it would look great on Big Bang Bar too. More updates to follow and it will be at the expo to check out.

New Batman Topper and Wall Decoration!!!!

New Batman topper and wall art piece. Plan on having it ready for expo and gonna offer it in a few colors. I am thinking a gold like in the picture and a silver. You will be able to hang it on the wall as decoration or you can use it as a pinball topper. It is about 8in round. Hope everyone likes.

LOTR Hardware in the works!!

Just finished up the powder coating on the hardware for the LOTR. I went with a rust color that Kat had picked out. It is a nice old leather color brown, that has black and reds swirled into it and gives it a textured look. I still need to add in the wording from the inside of the ring. I plan on writting the letters in gold down the siderails. Will have it done at at the expo for everyone to see. The pictures below don't do the color enough justice.

Weekend Projects 6-5-10

Spent most the weekend working on touching up the Pinbrawl trophys and preping them to prime/paint. I also poured a few Spider-man Buildings to get a jump start on them. Scott is working on the light mod for them and should be done very soon, which means the release for the buildings will happen in the next few weeks. :) Finally!!! :)

I have also started to make the other Batman mods and poured the mock ups of those. Finally,I had drawn up a layout for a set of Chicago Bears Bean Bag boxes for a friend of mine. Will get to painting them in the next few days after Kat gets the final prep work and priming done to it.

First Look Iron Man Hardware Kit: Video

Here is a first look at the mock up pieces for the Iron Man Hardware Kit. It is a candy apple red and with it being a candy it does look different in different lighting. The truest shot of the actual color is at 1min 17 seconds in til the end of the clip. I will have a full HD video of how the pieces look once I have them all done. Still have lots to paint on them and a custom mod for it too. Check the video out here at this link: Click here to watch video

PinBrawl Trophy

Just finished casting the 33rd trophy and finished all of the layout for the plates to be laser for it. I know everyone has been bugging Koz about when he is gonna get them done and I am here to say that it will not be much longer. I have to double check the spelling on the plates and then it's off to laser them. I should have all of the trophy's painted by the end of the weekend. I am guessing that they should be done and ready to ship by the 12th as long as they don't get held up at the laser engraver. Not much longer...hang in there guys ;) Thanks
Iron:Man Hardware Kit

Went to Mike from Great American Pinball's house on Monday and tested out the Iron:Man Hardware Kit. The candy Red looks great on the machine, I still have a lot more detail work to do to the lockdown bar as well as a really custom mod for the lockdown bar. I should have a video of the hardware to post in the next few days to show the true color of the hardware. Til then I have a picture here and a link to view a few more. But keep in mind that the photo does "Not" give the red candy the true credit it deserves. click here to see more iron:man pics
