    Pip-Boy 3000 Kits (from Fallout 3 and New Vegas)

    10/1/13 Update - The process of remaking the molds is complete and I am now producing these again. I am offering them up in the order that names are on my interest list - so if you'd like one, please send me an email (skruffynerfherder@gmail.com) and I will get back with you ASAP.
    More info is available on my FB prop page at https://www.facebook.com/SkruffyStudios


    These are for sale in KIT FORM ONLY. They do not come assembled. They will require the typical prop-building work (dremel work, sanding, painting, soldering for any electronics, and other assembly) that you would expect from any resin cast prop kit.

    Because each build is custom to the owner, there is not a single “right” way to do this. By way of instructional guide, I offer my own build thread, which is documented here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...6891167&type=3. It has a lot of good info and should give you a good idea of what it takes to put one of these together. Here is what a recent build looked like once finished:



    And my first build:


    And a picture of a raw cast to give you an idea of what you will receive:


    Thanks to darkside501st, I now also offer Pip-Boy hand plates for sale! The knob is cast from a 60's era dosimeter charging station, so not only is it accurate, it is era-appropriate.




    PRICING – RESIN CAST: (prices do not include shipping, please see below instructions for getting a shipping quote)
    Resin Pip-Boy 3000 cast: $75
    Resin PIMP-BOY 3 BILLION cast: $80
    Hand Plate + Knob: $30

    PRICING – DETAIL PACKAGES:
    I offer multiple options of OPTIONAL detail packages that you can use to improve the look and functionality of your PipBoy.

    Package 1 - $11


    * Metal details: 6 accurately sized screws & 3 rivet heads
    * 1 Hinge
    * 3 yellow LED Covers (for the Stats/Items/Data lights under the main screen)
    * 1 Correctly sized rad meter decal
    * 1 Black mesh for back of speaker grill

    Package 2 - $15
    Includes all of the contents of Package 1, plus:

    * 1 Plexi-glass screen
    * 1 Correctly sized color screen print (Fallout 3 default green with no name & level 1 displayed)

    Package 3 - $48
    Includes all of the contents of Packages 1 & 2, plus:

    * 2 EL sheets (for full coverage of screen area)
    * 1 EL Inverter (9V & powerful enough for both EL sheets)
    * 2 Yellow LEDs (1 to use and 1 as backup)
    * 1 9V battery holder
    * 1 Switch (push-on, push-off)
    * 2 Pieces of green lighting film
    * 1 Double AAA battery pack (for powering yellow LED)
    * 1 Resistor

    Random other Fallout stuff:
    * Resin copy of Platinum Chip (from New Vegas): $10

    ------------------------------

    PM Sent. I can't believe what I am seeing. I have been waiting for this to come out.

    Put me down for one off white resin kit, the NEW Detail package 3 (the EL light kit), and the Detail package 4 (the sound kit).

    Any chance you can ship the resin kit out first so I can get a head start on it?

    Reply PMs sent. For anyone that wants the cast now and detail bits later, that is completely fine. I do ask that you pay for shipping of the detail packages once those parts are in - which shouldn't be much more than an additional $5 or so. I will ask for that payment when the detail packages are ready to ship, so don't worry about paying it just yet. Let me know if this is what you want to do and I'll be happy to oblige .

    Just a reminder that time is running out on this run. Please remember to get your orders/payments in before the end of the month.

    Re: *RUN CLOSED* Pip-Boy 3000 Kits (from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas)

    This run is now closed. Thanks to everyone who has ordered! I'll be placing the orders for materials shortly and hope to begin shipping these out in a couple of weeks.

    Re: *RUN CLOSED* Pip-Boy 3000 Kits (from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas)

    Time for another update. Even though I ordered all of the parts for the detail kits on the 1st or 2nd of this month, there are still 2 that I am waiting on: the yellow LEDs and the 9V battery holders. The LEDs are apparently on a slow boat from China and are not due to arrive until some time next week. The battery holders were originally back-ordered, but I've been told they should arrive before this weekend. Both parts are in the 2 lighting detail packages, so I haven't been able to ship anyone's orders that included that package, which was most of them.

    I apologize for the delay and hope you all understand. I will continue to do everything that I can to get these out to everyone as soon as I am able.

    Ya know, I don't visit the for sale section in a while, and I miss this!? I just got into Fallout 3 about a month ago, still playing, and will be getting into New Vegas soon. So, I think I will be watching for another run. Next step, making Hellfire Enclave armor!

    Kinda. I never really thought to do a costume of Fallout, and now, with the Pipboy, I would consider it. Can you imagine the variations you could come up with?!

    Thank you for that. The last thing I want is for anyone to worry about placing their trust in me. I find that honesty and communication are always the best ways to do business .

    It's really a fantastic costume. Very recognizable, though still fairly rare. Here's a shot of my group from Dragon Con this year:


    The quantum is the best prop ever. It's a drink I co-designed with one of the other guys in that photo to be color accurate, carbonated, tasty, and alcoholic enough to kick your butt after a bottle or two.
