Picked this link up off RGP.

Not sure if it's cool to link to another forum, but I had to post it - you'll see why. This dude's a genius .. give him an A+ with a gold star. If you couldn't be bothered reading the post, just wait for all the pics to load .. you'll get the idea.

Very impressive, be interesting to see what he does with the playfield. Then of course the programing and rules / soud etc for the game...

Great looking project, I wish I had that sort of skill and patience.

Some people would of seen this one before but for those that haven't here's a home made Futurama pinball machine: http://members.aol.com/specialwhenlit/CustomPinball/index.html

every time i see that futurama pinball i wonder why kang/kodos is in there and what looks to be McBain. that ac/dc project is a beast, looks like he is doing it pretty quickly.

Hopefully he changes that ..the centre picture of the poster he has there looks ok without all the album covers

That would be my ultimate pin! I think he said it will play mp3s so all the songs would be there..
oh yeah!
For those about to rock we salute you!

We need to get that guy a job at The Pinball Factory.

Then maybe one day there'd actually be a Croc Hunter pinball ;-)

That is one very sweet idea. Futurama is pretty nifty too.

Now considering I have 3 Pinball Pool Playfields and only 2 full machines it would be a crazy idea to try something like that as an experiment.

Turn the worst PF into something new, could just be dropped into one of the machines to trial run it.

What sort of theme ideas do people have?:unsure

Best of luck if you actually decide to go through with it mate .. what a task!!

My vote: Red Dwarf


Or make 2, so you can do The Young Ones too!

I said it in the POTC pinnie thread and I'll say it again, Christine!

Oh, and yeah, that project is looking very purdy, can't wait to see the finished product.
