    I like the creators comment: Here are some pics from the Packers vs. Steelers. I think I am gonna play this game OVER just for the heck of being snowed in this weekend. If I can't go to the game, I will have the game!

    That is awesome! What a great find and post.
    And it's even better than the real thing since each fan is seated and not displaced! LOL
    Plus there is no lousy half time show.

    I had to post this after seeing it.

    I don't have an account over there, but i go on that forum once every other week to see what people have made and designed, and this has topped everything I have ever seen with miniature and electric football. I can't imagine how long this took to make, hours, days, maybe a week? But it looks so beautiful.

    No way I would glorify Jerryville and it's injury producing turf!

    Here's hoping to never see another Superbowl in Dull-as.

    In that other set, it looks like Jordy Nelson and Brian Bulaga went to the Bahamas and got quite a deep dark tan!

    Plus their numbers don't match the ones on the board.

    Oh come on, they had to sit there and watch the two teams they hate more than anything win a Super Bowl in THEIR house!

    Don't matter how many times the Cowboys think it's funny about the Steelers losing there, they had to deal with us winning there when we had not won in Dallas in forever lol

    Which is why I wish we could have a re-match in Dallas against Dallas with A-Rod now at the helm.

    Me too, I was disappointed we didn't get the Jerry Jones barn on our road schedule this season. The Saints got to rematch them, but I forgot, the Cowboys didn't LOSE to them the first time around.

    If the schedule is set in stone, I don't think we play against the Cowboys at all this season.
    Which is surprising.
    Because I thought it was a sure thing like the sun rising in the east every day.

    these things are smaller than most realize and take a good deal of work.

    There are guys who make the logos and stripes as well to stick on the players.

    and then learning how to play the game and tweaking the bases etc.

    its cool and I like it but just may be too time consuming. I have the old sets and stuff but never pull it out to try. Its like the last of electronic toys, like an old train set. But the players are cool to look at with all the teaking they do to the body types.

    Me too, but believe me that stuff takes a long long time to make.

    I've seen people paint them, and I can't have the patience for that.

    I believe that one was done with stickers on the field board (it's just too perfect! LOL)

    all of the figures are painted, and then they use stickers for the numbers and names and logos on the helmets.

    Those figures also are not like the old Electric boards. it's a different brand of figures and you have to glue the face masks on (which some builders, it's more for them do to hair outside the helmet like Matthews and Polamalu)


    Either way, at the end of the day you gotta agree how amazing they are!

    I've tried painting some electric football teams in the past. They turned out ok but no comparison to some of the stuff at miniaturefootball.com.

    I would like to get more into the hobby but I hate to say it: it's too freakin' expensive. It used to be easy when Miggle had the NFL license and you could order teams off their website for like 10 bucks each, but nowadays I can't spend 100 bucks on a 11 man team someone made. Not knocking their work though, it's worth every penny. I just can't afford it.

    I'm hoping this upcoming lockout will give the NFL a chance to look themselves in the mirror and maybe go back to their past and make officially licensed electric football games again. The fact they bailed out angers me and the entire EF community.

    I wonder how he did the crowd.
    That also looks really cool.

    And right now that is the only way the Stealers beat the Pack in the SB!
    Ha ha ha!
