So completely bummed right now...


#1

I have never really had much interest in trying to get a Peak. They were never a throw that I felt like spending that kind of cash on… until I stumbled upon the Peak History thread. It was a great read, and had some pictures of some very nice looking peaks. Then I saw this:

I knew it had to be mine eventually. For those of you that don’t know me, and very few around here do, my previous hobby was collecting vintage video games, specifically NES. This yoyo would be a perfect fusion between my two favorite things, and, come on, it would look bad @** on this shelf, right?

So, I pm’d sparhawk, the topic creator, or at least copier from the yye thread, and he said he believes the Super Mario Bros. Peak was lost in the mail… … . … … … Ouch.

I love all of Levi’s Peaks. RAN has the best collection of them (I believe he has more than this…)

Found the thread here http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php?topic=67261.0
And I’m going to ask a really stupid question, but that’s painted? :o
Anyone know how or what type of paint?

I know it’s not the same but I can see something very similar being able to be done in anodization. The white would be clear ano but pretty close.


#7

Levi used automotive paint and airbrush.


#8

Costly it can be done in powder coat no problem.


#9

I can’t see the fine details and fades of that nintendo one being done in PC, but what do I know?


#10

Nothing?

Smash-Yo victim.


(Owen) #11

but the thing is paintjobs looks better than powdercoats


#12

Take a look at my pro pic, that’s a powder coat by Bob lol


#13

It’s funny how every person that decides they want to finish yoyos has to straight rip off Levi.

I’m in the “no way you’re doing that in powder half as clean as Levis” camp.


#14

Paint is not even in the same league as powder as far as difficulty to use.

People want people get. Price is based on that.


#15

This yoyo seems like a real nice collectible yoyo it’s a shame it got lost, oh well hope he can make you a new one but imho it needs one gumba.


#16

You just said you could replicate that in powder no problem. Until of course someone wants to see it done.

Gonna reiterate my NO WAY. Definitely havent seen any detialed work like that from you, anyway.


#17

You are typical of people I deal with here.

Anytime anywhere! Cough up the cash for Levi rip offs and it will be done.

Long live the king baby!!!

Off the top, in a zone… :’(

I call this…“Nintendo Peak freestyle:”

So sad I can’t speak, as I stare out the window,
Thinking of that Peak, that looks just like Nintendo,
Plans were derailed, sounds like a trade failed,
Peak was for sale, but got lost in the mail?
What a fine cool design, it was definitely worth it,
And maybe in time, Nintendo Peak will resurface,
This thread made me sad, why…I do not know,
I guess it’s always bad, when mourning a lost throw,
As soon as I read this mess, I was mortified,
But, impressed, your game collection is so organized.
I guess the missing Peak will forever be a mystery,
Vanished “so to speak,” just a part of Peak history.

:frowning:

Nice rap TA

That peak is really cool looking.

Just saying I’m not 100% sure on it being gone for good

Bob I’m not saying you can’t do it but I’d prefer if you were less cocky when responding. It’s just not a nice attitude for the thread.
