    Possible Dalek Pop Bumper Mod

    Just played the new(?!) Dr Who: Master of Time on The Pinball Arcade and was blown away (it doesn't take much) by the Dalek Pop Bumpers.

    I was wondering if anyone has the skills (3d printer??) to make up some straight replacement pop bumpers with a dalek head? I'd pay good money for a replacement set.

    I'd pay even more money if you could make it with a mech that when the pop activates, it pushes a small lever that moves the dalek 'stalk' which would be hinged. See what I mean in this vid at 40 seconds or whenever the ball goes into the pop bumpers:



    It's probably wishful thinking, but thought I'd put it out there just in case ...

    That'd be an awesome mod. I'm sure it could be done.

                Can we expect them before or after King Kong's release?

                    Once upon a time there was a small boy whose mother sent him to the market to buy a cow and he returned with 3 magical Dalec pop bumpers........but I digress with this fairy tale.

                      If you mean these, I was 'meah' when I saw them. They didn't do much for me. But pop bumpers would look cool.

                              Unfortunately, as @Ryza pointed out... There's no room!!!

                              One pop is virtually flush under the ramp. One is under the "increase transmat faster when lit" sign, which could be taken off but...

                              And the 3rd bumper is approx 1/3 under the ramp so the dalek would have to be lobotomized.

                              Nice idea but would need some serious modification and no way that would happen with the ramp there.
