This thread makes me so happy that projects like this get seen through to completion. I'd pay handsomely for a turn-key repro as executed in this thread..

I’d even be super interested in a kit that included just some of the major parts, like banana, and panel

The panel will be available through @alberto1225 and we are doing the Bananas for sale for now. I’ll have an update post coming out soon with our first production sample that is printed in one piece, the first 2 sample were printed in 2 halves then glued, they cracked after 3-4 hours of hard play. More info to come soon, you guys will be happy! stay tuned!

You need to source old nokia plastic. Will outlive the universe
You mean like a nokia razor? I dropped mine down a 2 story parkade stairwell and it survived! iPhone will crack if it falls off your hip onto carpet LOL

Really cool stuff! Always considered monkey ball one of those "games I'd love to get but accept that I can't have" due to the special parts, but this thread is a real game-changer. Definitely put me down for one if we're doing the whole list-in-thread thing!

Ok Guys! We got 1:1 copies!! Available in 3 types:
Left- Gundam shaft (lower mounting hole will be counter sunk like the center one on final production)
Center- Gundam shaft no holes
Right- original Monkey Ball shaft

Credit goes to XeD for sorting out all the model revisions!

These are printed in one piece, the last 2 samples I posted were printed in halves then glued. I tested those with only one screw holding it to the shaft and the connector screw not fully tight, after 3-4 hours of normal play they began cracking at the base. I did this to see what would happen if the screws fell out or loosen over time.
One solid print is the way to go. Game is super fun!!
Anyways.. hope you guys are happy

They look fantastic! The middle one with no holes is the go...

Any idea what the price point is?

$66 US each + shipping, XeD will start a new thread so people can order these but we are looking at options to save on shipping, I've spoken to @alberto1225 about sending me all the panels so I can ship out a banana and a panel to those who want both. there will be a harness as well. I'm still working out shipping costs and logistics. We have some Gundam sticks as well ;) so a full kit can be offered...

I need a harness for sure! I am building these too and have everything except the harness.

Any idea of cost or a parts list for the harness?

This is AWESOME man, GREAT job!
