    Hello Everyone. I'm the guy who created the custom yagov sticker for the F-14 and decided to go a step further in pinball mod. This is a new mod I developped for the EAPTM pinball

    Those are articulated skeletons toys that I modified and adapt to be easily fitted in the original Boogie Men area. I'm quite happy with the result and I listed a few of them for sale on eBay. link » Boogie Men To Skeletons Mod For Elvira And The Party Monsters Bally Pinball

    Or simply watch the final result here:

    Tell me what you think

    That's awesome!

    Ha, nice job. I'm particular to my boogie men, have a bag of the original proper rubbery ones thankfully to divide between my EATPM and SS as needed, but that's very clever.

    Your eBay link wouldn't load for me, so I looked it up: link » Boogie Men To Skeletons Mod For Elvira And The Party Monsters Bally Pinball

    I had the original boogie men when I was young. I used them as finger puppets.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I know it's a bit sacrilegious, boogie men are classics, but when I play pinball I'm always asking myself "how it could have been better if it wasn't for the production cost"

    That's why I came up with a mod that is not too invasive but add a bit more fun. My son laughs at it every time and for me that's all that counts.

    As for myself I go an extra mile by actually removing the boogie plastic underneath, keeping the legs on the skeletons, painting the light bulb red and green, adding a Dracula figure behind them matching the "Thank you boys!" audio cue and putting some red velvet fabric to cover the wood area. Since it's only for home use I can live with the balls ending in dead spot on extremely rare occasions.

    Oh! I also remove the original Elvira cauldron plastic, which is simply awesome and clearly not showcased well enough on the pinball, and put it at the entrance of the party ramp my advice, it just makes more sense with the "Quick! head for the cauldron" audio cue during multiball...I know... sacrilegious ;p

    I just guess that foolin' around with your pinball is part of the fun. Should I ever sell it back one day, which I strongly doubt, I can always bring it back to it's original condition in a jiffy.

    neat mod seeing how they shake a little bit more, but I like the little rubber dudes

    OK. The boogie men are supposed to be scary. Those skeletons are funny. That is not what Elvira is all about. I was laughing the whole time I was watching your YouTube video, not scared at all.

    I think you have totally missed the point of Elvira....

    #14 6 years ago

    er, those Boogie Men are not that scary...just sayin'

    Of course. With the lights on. I play with the lights OFF.

    Ohhhhh! THAT case....

    #17 6 years ago

    What would be really scary is if EATPM had boogie men on the slings like some of the Scared Stiffs do.

    Lights on for that kind of play.

    Interesting interpretation

    #19 6 years ago

    I like the skeletons!

    Skeletons look cool, but there just not the "Boogie Men".
    "Thank You Boys"
