Does anyone have the Wozmods State Fair balloon light mod. The demo video makes it sound like sounds are also added to mimic the gas being turned on in the balloon? I assume this is just a sound effect that he added to the video but wanted to check. I am trying to decide between his lighting mod and the Mezel version

Mine is the light only but I forgot where I purchased it. It lights up a dark area so I'd suggest getting it, even w/o any sound effect. Get the Indypin Lit Winkie first though

Who sells the lit Winkie?

I have the WozMods balloon in conjunction with the tree eye lights (same light controller). The one I have has no sounds. I probably would not like it with the sounds. It does light up that area better too, as mentioned previously. It is a good little mod to have for the effect.

Thanks. I am trying to justify the $100 extra cost for Wozmods as opposed to Mezel. I am not sure pulsing the lights is worth that difference to me

Doesn't IndyPin make the throne room fire pot mods? I think Modfather makes the lit Winkie. HUGE improvement on the stock one, IMO

The fire pots are made by mezelmods. IndyPin makes the black cover for the throne room plastic. IndyPin also makes the lighted Winkie.

Mezelmods has the lighted winkie also, but a lot of people report that those break easy. Mine from Mezel has not broke in 400+ plays with flipper strength set as the default from the factory and play field at 6.5 degrees. Mezel is working on a design change for those (last I saw from a mezel post on pinside). For now, I would go with the IndyPin version as that gets better reviews currently.

Mine from mezel broke last night. I just put in an order with Indypin for a hopefully non-breaking target.

Not sure of cost differences/etc., but I got the mezel balloon light -- honestly, I didn't want it pulsing, I think it looks better steadily lit. I do want the LED tree eyes though!

Just so you know ... the ones from WOZMods are not individual mini LEDs. You drill some small holes in the tree eyes and fish a LED on a wire up into the tree behind the eyes. You then tie wrap the wires for the LEDs in the trees so that they do not fall back down. I like it, it is "ok", but it would have been better with individual mini LEDs in the eyes. That would be much harder to do and I would probably pay someone to do that. Like what someone did with the witch replacement mod that sillyoldelf made. If you want to spruce up the witch see the pic gallery in this:

I bought one, but have not installed it yet.

The WozMods balloon has no sounds, and the pulsing is not a strobing, but a gentle flicker with fading so it looks like a flame is in there. I like it a lot. I think to get the flickering you have to already have his other controller for the glowing tree eyes and just tie into that if I remember right. Otherwise you have to buy a controller just for the flickering, which is kind of insane.

I just want to add another great mod is Pinnovator's thru the door volume kit, in case you want to use ear phones. It installs easily and looks like a factory install. I keep the volume at "32" for most of the time and it's plenty loud for the factory external speakers. But if you plug in earphones the volume isn't loud enough even when set to loudest unless you open the door and adjust. The Pinnovator's kit allows you to adjust without opening the door.
