These were from Freeplay Florida 2018.

I made this trophy for our Charity Critical Hit today. First time trying my hand at 3d modeling/printing.


#83

wow those look awesome!!!


#84

Sick!


#85

Thanks. I need to make some tweaks to the model, but if anyone wants the file to print their own, I’m happy to pass it on once I make the fixes.


#86

These are from a tournament I hosted in 2014. Simple, yet nice!

Trophy from today’s Turkinator 2 event.

We’re holding the David Taylor Memorial Tournament in a few weeks. I’m sure many of you knew David, and if you did then you probably also knew about his affinity for Fireball post-tournament. We made these custom trophies, and hope he would have approved.

Also, details of the tournament are below. We’re donating 100% of the entry fees to charity, so if you can’t make it out to Tennessee in a few weeks but will still like to contribute drop me a line, or make a contribution to the American Kidney Fund, David’s charity of choice.

Small correction. Sometimes “mid-tournament”.LOL Miss you brother!

We have a local guy, Dave Dimoff, who is a woodworker, and at some point he started being the goto guy for making pinball trophies using spare parts and scrap playfields. I need some for a fundraising tournament I’m running tomorrow, and he asked me what I had to make them out of. I handed him a bag full of promo plastics I had gotten from Stern at some point, and a beat up Mr & Mrs Pacman playfield and this is what he did with them. I love them.

Bryan Broyles did this for their Munsters launch party. Very cool!


#92

I have been handing these out since Pincinnati. A local artist here has been helping me do something a little more unique with the wood medals.


#93

Is everyone making most of these or is there a place that makes custom trophies (that aren’t hundreds of dollars)?

I’ve been looking for better trophies than what I’ve been buying from Crown Awards, but haven’t found much pinball related.


#94

Here’s a decent website with some bases available:

(Prices range from $3 up to $100+)

We still purchase a bunch of gazing balls to serve as our “large pinballs”:


(We purchase 4", 6" and 8" for various trophies we make. You can find up to 12" if you wanted to get crazy)


#95

I wonder how heavy a 12" pinball from Ball Baron would weigh?
EDIT: (4/3) pi r (cubed) = (4/3) * 3.14159 * 216 = 905 cu. in. * 0.282 lb/cu. in. = 255 pounds
I want one! Someone start a GoFundMe!


He sells an oak stand for his 4".


#96

Cross stitched a first place trophy for the first season of New Haven Pinball League:

In addition to gift cards, second and third place will receive one of these (or similar; currently working on some DMD art from Jack-Bot and TAF):


#97

Some of the throwback Superelectric Pinball Battle monthly trophies are impressive. For being a non Circuit/League trophy, I’m looking forward to putting this block on a wall!

Bonus points for winning it while traveling with someone who did Russian studies in college as well.


#98

#99
