Quoted from Walleyefisher:

Torches? Still waiting

I'm offering a 100% refund for all those still waiting on torches. PM me your info

#552 2 years ago

After this, all production on this mod will be halted indefinitely unless a 3rd party distributor is willing to pick it up (so far, none have shown interest).

I think that the majority of us don't want a "refund". we want the torches that we ordered almost 2 years ago. I've reached out to you multiple times on potential solutions, but that seems to fall on deaf ears.

not to sound like a dick, but you kind of sold this as a "complete overhaul package", and by only delivering on 1/2 of it, we kind of feel cheated. "here sir, here's your ferrari that you ordered and pre-paid for. your transmission will ship sometime in the next 3-5 years"

#554 2 years ago

No worries JM, I apologize for not touching base sooner with you. Touch base with me again via PM and let's see what we can do. I did notice someone else was coming up with a solution for this as well, but I'm not sure where that landed.

I'm taking a break from mod production to focus on old and new unreleased projects, so let's get this hammered out first and foremost

#555 2 years ago

Finally got mine!

Again, for the record.. I didn't paint yours. That's the Modfather version

it's been nearly a month since I pm'ed you as requested without a reply back. for someone that says "let's get this hammered out", it's kind of hard to do when there's no reply

Still waiting for my three coffin mods.... How much longer is going to go on...?

#563 1 year ago

pinball_customs if you truly wanted to get the torches done, you would have returned one of the numerous pm's that I've sent you over the past 6 months

additionally, I've given you quite a few suggestions to try out and solve your production issues. I don't understand why this seems to be that hard

How long has it been now since you’ve paid him?

#565 1 year ago

I paid for both the coffin and the torches over 2 years ago. I did receive the coffin (back on 7/5/2016 about 5 months after sending payment) but am still waiting on the torches. I've reached out numerous times and included potential solutions to his productions issues, but have not received a single response to any of those pm's

Would these torches work with the coffin mod installed?

they probably would, but I don't think that they look half as nice as the ones that brock teased us with 2 years that he did for drano

#568 1 year ago

He posted as recently as 7 days ago, wondering why no one will buy his GOTG shooter rods...I guess people read this thread and dont want to deal with him.

this is why you don't make promises that you can keep. and more importantly, you don't take money for things you can't deliver on

This is totally unacceptable! Lets try to keep this current until it gets resolved.

#572 1 year ago

Here's my version

The video doesn't do it justice it has red and yellow leds in it. It connects to the existing coffin lock light connector so works the same in game as the existing ones.

Msg me if you want a set

I'd buy a Brock coffin mod from someone, if they are looking to unload it. Painted or unpainted is fine.

I was actually trying to help the guys out on here that have been waiting for years for torches. If I had posted a fresh thread it would of just got lost in all the other petty bitching and moaning that has become pinside these days so wouldn't of been a help to no one!

Agreed!! I don't have Brocks MOD but I'd wanna see these torches here...not lost among the many threads where I'd surely miss it. I like the flickering effect...good stuff.

You want a free advert for your product. Talented people and great products do not get passed over on Pinside.

Maybe a good solution is you should start a separate thread and then simple post a link to it on this thread for the interested parties. There are people trying to get issues resolved from this seller and your mod posts are derailing that.

#580 1 year ago

Still waiting on those torches, I hear they are about to have a nor'easter in hell so I'll keep watching my mailbox.

it's time you got your act together on these and finish them. it's now been 2 years since you've taken my money for a promised product and failed to deliver

I got my coffin mod sometime ago ... maybe a couple of years ago. Time flies ...

I had to come back to this thread to remember how it was supposed to look when it was installed. It fits over the top of the original coffin (sans Ron jeremy) but I didn’t like the look of that. So I did mine a little different.

First I removed everything. Took out the stainless base, and mucked around with how I wanted it to look, and most importantly, making sure it works 100%.

I removed the long hex posts from the base, and using the holes of two of them installed 2x 44 lamp holders. I bent the brackets around so the lamp faces upwards. Then I masked off the lamps and the centre bit, and gave it three coats of satin black spray paint around the edges. You can see the edge of the base with the coffin mounted, and I preferred it to be black rather than stainless.

Next, I figured out how the Factory light board works. The yellow wire is the common, the 3x other wires drive the 555 bulbs. To be honest, I never really noticed Ron Jeremy glowing much, but ... that’s what it does.

So I removed those wires and soldered them to my new lamp holders, leaving one coloured wire spare which was taped up. The yellow wire loops between both lamps. You must put a diode in line on the coloured wires, same as the board has. Otherwise the other lamps in the matrix will stay lit.
Always use heatshrink on shit like this.

Then I trial fitted it to see what happened. Sure enough, the lights turn on and off as per plan. Note the 1x screw and 1x hex that now mount the steel base to the posts.

The flashers were changed to LEDs too. They really light up the coffin, and the red glow shoots out the exit as well. Nooooicceeee!

The coffin needs a little modification now it is sitting flat on the steel. I dremelled out the exit a little to make it higher for the ball to get out, and also a little notch at the back to go over the hex screw.

And here she is all fitted. It’s just sitting there at present, but I’ll probably fix it down with double sided tape.

Looks pretty sweet. IMO.

Likes up like a MoFo too! Without burning out your retinas.

Just thought I’d share that, could be helpful to someone!

well, another 2+ months have gone without so much as a single reply from brock. at this point, I think that all pinsiders should start to boycott him until he starts owning up to his promises
at this point, frustrated doesn't even begin to describe how I feel (especially considering that I purchased it as a "gift" for a friend. what a shitty friend I feel like when over 2 years later I still can't give what was promised

#584 1 year ago

JM, I've offered several times to refund your money for the torches.

I've been dealing with some pretty serious stuff at home so I apologize that mod making has not been a top priority. I do appreciate everyone's patience with me.

I just finished a batch of coffins, all pre-orders are shipping today. I have a limited number (4) for purchase that are ready to ship for $180 USD. I also have one pre-printed dud that is 1/4" too short (see pic). It will still fit and work fine in the game. $100 shipped.

This doesn't make sense , are you saying he has refused your refund?

#586 1 year ago

yes, I have refused the refund offer.

he's the one that originally reached out asking for assistance to get this done and I've reached out no less than 6 times over the past year, but never got a single reply from him.

I don't want a refund, I want was promised when I placed the order for both the coffin and the torches as a compete set. I'm not going to post the pm's and dig up dirt, but needless to the say, brock hasn't done anything on his part to try and even attempt to get these done (and yet has produced more coffins and more 3D snake mods for tim mezel.

I think that's the most frustrating part. I've offered numerous times (and multiple potential solutions) to help with his manufacturing problems, but he doesn't appear to want to complete this mod

people who know me, know that I follow through on everything that I've said that I'll do. in addition, I DON'T take pre-order money. NO money is taken until I have product to ship, plain and simple.

brock's taking my money is without delivering the promised product is basically a contract that he initiated. and one that he's not upholding his end

I'm not trying to be an ass about this, I just want what was promised and paid for (especially considering that this was supposed to be a gift for a friend
