Link for those Marvel blacklight posters, please and thanks.

Great room!
Here ya go and thank you for the kind words. I’m having (4) posters framed at Michaels for these. They run 70% off sales now and again. And choose the anti glare glass option. Chose them without sealed backings so can swap posters. Did (2) verts and (2) horizontals. Normally $125 for 12 posters.. but they are selling for only $78 now. Picked up a small blacklight LED to focus on and illuminate each poster… because the normal black light LEDs in the room point down and the posters only absorb some of the rays since they are off to the side on the wall.

Cool, I appreciate the advice. Really strong work in that garage, man. I’m thinking of adding a mini split header in my garage now, lol.

Thank you. It’s a work in progress but it’s getting there. Would like to add black light carpet in the future. Originally started with a $2k monster 36k BTU Friedrich AC window unit, but it was junk, loud and ultimately died after not much use. Looked crappy from the outside also. Wife hated it.

The AC minisplit was definitely the way to go. A little pricier at about $6k installed. Quiet works good and isn’t ugly.

Btw the posters I’m having framed are:

Namor/Spider-Man - horizontal
Captain America - horizontal
Iron Man - vertical
Silver Surfer - vertical

Those are my faves from the set.

There is a volume 2 coming out later this year @$125 also… probably will wait until they go on sale then pounce, lol.

Original 1971 posters have better colors but are in the 100’s of dollars each, whereas these look pretty darn good and are $6.50 each lol

Awesome setup.
I love hearing all the machines on.
Thank you. Pretty sure a lot of the attract sounds are currently set to OFF on many of the machines. Have to get around to researching the dips then will turn them all ON.. but it will be pretty noisy then, 😂

Hopefully one day, all of the machines will work then I can post another walkthrough video will all the bells and whistles :)

026C7B3B-C128-4E32-830A-3F6FC2CC05E8.jpegGot to mounting the Marvel black light posters. A little hard to capture how reactive they are… but this gives an idea. Much brighter in person. I mounted dedicated black light fixtures aimed at each photo.

Comic book posters.. Arcade games. Doesn’t clash too much.

This is my favorite of the Marvel posters. Sub Mariner and Spidey. Waiting on one more poster to be framed.

They are like 27% off right now.

Yes Volulme 2 will rock. Debating whether to snag it at full price $125 or wait to see if it goes on sale for $78 like V1 did.

These poster backings aren’t sealed so can swap different ones in and out to keep things fresh, lol

Wow, just wow! Amazing set up. See that you have battle balls on your menu which is one of my favorite puzzle games back in the day.

I was wowed by your collection thread, this is awesome that you host too. I definitely wish I lived nearby, but alas I'm on the east coast.
