Elite Pinball Toppers Announces POTC Topper!

POTC Elite Pinball Topper

Elite Pinball Toppers is revealing their newest creation today – the POTC Elite Pinball Topper! Below are all the details.

Limited Edition: Only 100 units available worldwide. The POTC Elite Pinball Topper is the ultimate immersive experience that’s designed for and interacts with the 2018 POTC Pinball Machine. The topper works with SE, LE and CE trim levels. This topper is packed with technology and industry firsts and takes “illusion” to a new level. In the center of the topper lies a 3D modeled, hand painted, and aged pirate ship that is sinking into the ocean after its been attacked by (5) menacing tentacles that are reaching out from the depths of the sea. Two of the five hand painted and 3D modeled tentacles physically move/articulate as they give the illusion of the ship being dragged to the ocean deep. These moving waves also interact with the game’s action button on the lock down bar. The ship also has a flickering “candle-like effect” taking place inside the boat to make it appear as though there is activity aboard the sinking ship.

In front of the ship is (5) 3D modeled / hand painted ocean waves. Two of the five waves move/articulate back and forth giving the illusion of raging seas. These “rocking” waves are uniquely coded with different speeds that interact with and respond to the speed of the black pearls rocking motion on the playfield. As the black pearl sways more from side to side, the waves react and change speed accordingly. To further sell the illusion, the entire backdrop of the topper is an ultrawide HD monitor that plays realistic footage of raging seas that are surrounded by fog in the night and lightning strikes in the sky.

The topper also has (in total) 220 individually addressable RGB LEDs that have been coded to create breathtaking visual effects in between each wave, in front of the boat, and around the tentacles. Behind the Ultrawide HD monitor, and on the backside of the topper, lies 72 RGB LEDs that create ocean-like effects on your walls and ceiling while simultaneously creating a 4D effect of flashing lightning strikes that are synchronized with the footage being played on the HD monitor.

Each topper is equipped with an exclusive CNC Cut, Aluminum Numbered Plaque (1 through 100). Also each topper will come with a commemorative “Pirate Coin” that is hand gilded in Genuine 24k gold. This coin can be placed under the glass as a mod or used as a keepsake.

Elite Pinball Toppers does not “re-run” its toppers. This is a common question we get. When these 100 units are gone, they will never be made again.
