I was just thinking that it was time for another WOZ update...


2 years, 11 months ago

I could see watching that while someone else is playing. I am pretty sure that is part of their goal to revive pinball.

Jack has said he will have another one soon.


2 years, 11 months ago

yeah and he has the JJP invisiglass, looks pretty darn good!


2 years, 11 months ago

Mmm.... Yummy snack!

Like I posted on the WoZ owners forum, I REALLY like the way they cut out those characters so well! It looks like they were almost filmed on a green screen to begin with! NICE WORK!


2 years, 11 months ago

Not to jack the thread but...I am thrilled that I got my own personal email update today for the first time!

Man, I was just looking at the email pics and think the same thing. That sucker looks heavy.


2 years, 11 months ago

Wow, my friend is going to be stoked to see this update when he gets home and kickin' himself for not having a data plan on his crackberry


2 years, 11 months ago

Let's hope that the two magnets in front of the witch make it to production. Up until now I think we only knew for sure about two magnets. There was a video released a few months ago that showed the ball acting like there were magnets in front of the witch, but this is the first confirmation of it.

You can see a the flying monkey mechanism in one pic too, although not very good.

This thing is looking better all the time.

Signs of hope!!!! I am excited every time I see it.

The glass does look nice. Hope it's cheap enough to get it for all my machines.

I believe I read it will be available for right around 3 bills.... It's not even cheap enough to go on ONE of my machines, let alone all of them....


2 years, 11 months ago

Lots of motors, coils, inserts, mechanical toys, and magnets in addition to innovations/additions like the LCD, Invisiglass, full length slide brackets (hopefully included) and many more items.

One thing for sure, anybody that purchases this game is not getting cheated in terms of bang for the buck. I am very excited!


2 years, 11 months ago

Invisiglass for $295? I hope he gives us Jersey Guys a better deal...


2 years, 11 months ago

Feels like Christmas everytime!


2 years, 11 months ago

fun fun

Where did you hear that price?


2 years, 11 months ago

. With WOZ you get 3 motorized toys, more than 3 magnets, 5 flippers, 2 upper playfields, a ruleset that actually has new rules, a pretty good-shooting playfield... Not to mention people will be blown away with what we do with our LCD I think.

The quote above stangs quote was sent to me month ago when I was wavering on which NIB to buy. It was sent to me from a WOZ staff member.

I like the wizard of oz.

Cool, I didn't know that as I'd never seen confirmation about more than two. So that confirms that the witch will be messing with our balls.

Can someone elaborate on these "new rules"?


2 years, 11 months ago

4 magnets. Just the underside itself tells a story. This game will be impressive. Can't wait !

Does that look like some EL wire on the upper right or do I need to put my glasses on?


2 years, 11 months ago

The video sequence reminds me of the treatment of the new slot machines in vegas. WOZ slot machine has some super cool animations. My gut is telling me this is what it's being modeled after - which I'm ok with it. Makes playing slots more fun especially for those watching.

I'm so glad I ordered one.

Anyone notice how shiny the underside of the playfield looks?

Been saying that since last February BadBilly! It's why I got back into pinball and bought one....the LCD is a game changer....

Btw, one of the coolest new slot machines in Vegas is BDK! I never played a slot machine until WOZ and now I look for the fun ones to play for the video.....money lasts longer than craps too

WOZ Slot (give it a chance and watch for a few minutes)

Credit to iceman then I played BDK at Vegas at Venetian - it was super cool - agreed.


2 years, 11 months ago

WOZ is going to be great.


2 years, 11 months ago

I have played that slot at Borgata in Atlantic City. It is impressive compared with the usual video slot machines.

I don't think there will be anything half-assed about this game.


2 years, 11 months ago

Jack said those mega rails are going to be on production machines. No cutting corners here.


2 years, 11 months ago

too funny, i mentioned the shiny underside on the WOZ group! I wonder if that's going to be standard or what.

On the picture with Jack on the assembly line, you can kind of get a sneak peak at what the flying monkey mechanism looks like (behind the backboard). Could be a motor and screw drive assembly, possibly like the mist mechanism in BSD?


2 years, 11 months ago

This pin is going to be a tank !

I'll say!
I snapped this photo of Smassa bulking up in preparation for the big day...

Looking at those rails, I'd say everyone's going to need some gym time to nudge this baby properly!

I am ready to try the 11 ply!

Yes, it looks like the monkey is going to fly from the bottom right corner in a straight line up to the witches castle. It will probably hold the ball by means of a magnet and drop it off when it gets to the upper playfield/castle.

I also have a guess about the bottom left outlane pop bumper. I am guessing that if you hit all the targets at the outlane you will get a ball save (just my guess as to the purpose of the pop bumper and targets).

Yes,and It sure looks good from the inside out.

The animation leaves me unimpressed.

The invisiglass looks amazing... and those rails! Serious business. I think all of us despise the crap rails that our pins have...

Underside of the pin looks very promising. I like the idea of those two near-by magnets, with cores not visible on top of PF, should be a really interesting dynamic. Then 2 magnets on the orbit, one at the top (is that to drop it into the paths under the upper right PF?), and one above the upper right flipper, presumably playing spiral-helper duty.

The animation is just a snippet to show how they can put the video into the LCD. It is not near a finished product. The previous video they released was a little more impressive for showing how it could be integrated with the gameplay/multiball.

+1 Looks great. Could be the first 400lb game. The people that bought this, better have beer and pizza ready for the guys that help you move this monster.

Wow, yeah, that video came out really well. The result is still a bit odd though, with actors layered onto a digitally generated background, but I think it works, inspires a lot more faith than the other animation clip.
