Welcome to the hologram lamp upgrade mod section of my Creature from the Black Lagoon site.

This mod came about because people were concerned that their holograms were not displaying very brightly over a period of time. Some collectors were even unlucky enough to find that their green holograms had deteriorated into blue holograms! I was told that the original designer of this mod was Kevin Keinert. Kevin designed the mod and tried to sell it but I think the response was less than stellar. Another pinhead named Matt came along and thought it was a great idea and installed it in his game. He told Martin Renolds  and the rest is history! Little history lesson for ya! This mod works great! It can be purchased from Pinbits.

The picture below shows the upgraded bulb assembly.


 

The following pictures show the process I used to install the hologram lamp mod on my Creature.  It was straight-forward but I had a few missing parts on my game.  In particular, the standoffs were missing so I had to fashion my own to complete the modification.

The picture below shows the standoffs that I decided to use as replacements on my game. Not sure, but I think they were from a Williams Bride of Pinbot game.

The pictures below show the rest of the hologram lamp mod installation.

Original lamp and box.

The link below will show you a short video I shot to illustrate the hologram lamp in action. The Creature was noticeably brighter and really had an impressive presence with the new lamp mod installed.
