Finished up the LOTR hardware kit just in time for expo. It will be on the website in a few days. Glad everyone likes the color now that the Gold writing is on it. Had to do it all freehand but I think it came out great. Hope everyone like.

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.
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.

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.

Just finished up the LOTR siderails. Had to hand paint each of them, but I think they came out really nice. Can wait to put it back on the machine and see how it looks. Still have the lockdown bar to do but will do that tomorrow night. Hope everyone likes.

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 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.

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.
