Todays Secret Word is…

The Goonies Apron Good enough?

IMG_7317     A last minute idea on my part was to screen the apron and shooter for this project.  Ive always liked this art of the standing cast holding hands,  and was used as far back as the old Atari and DataSoft daze.


A New Pinball Project Has Just Begun

IMG_7287      So while helping Micheal with the Goonies Pinball I started to developed a new idea for a new  pinball project.  I was able to pick up a partial Gottlieb Hollywood Heat Playfield from Portland Pinball Repair Company  locally Which also came in handy, having it on hand in helping Micheal with his build as well.  So Ill be taking some of the templates we created for Hollywood Heat to make Goonies and rework them into another brand new theme.  Which turned out to have a very unexpected Goonies connection!  Putting together art concepts now and all will be revealed soon.  So stay tooned…

 

The Flux Capacitor Revision2

Well Damm after getting the thinkgeek flux and deciding where and how to modify and place in the playfield, this one turns up.  A kick starter for a BTTF Flux Capacitor replica 1:10 scale!

Couldn’t decide on die cast or stainless so I had to back them both!  This will be a much better  version to  add-on for this project.  So in the meantime Ill just concentrate on the sound and LCD screen.

IMG_6965The printing went off without a hitch. The higher mesh really help nail this detail. and the end results were just amazing.  A BIG thanks to Gabriel of Official Screens for the custom screens.
