Full set is $269. Includes the mechanical casket, Gargoyle VUK cover, Gonk's Dog House, and matching grass pieces for the front flasher (pops were discontinued).

Unique customs are no longer available. The Scared Stiff with webbing/spider and Elvira Mistress of the Dark with eyes are what will primarily be available from here on out.

$7.99 shipping within the US. $29.99 International ($19.99 for Canada).

Will accept pre-orders through PM.

As always, I appreciate your interest.

Quoted from jfh:

The casket/gargoyle combo looks very cool!
For the mechanical version I presume the ball hits a plastic post to raise the tops? If so, does this have an impact on ball speed?

I appreciate the positive feedback

The casket flaps don't affect ball speed at all, and the first shots in the video were done from a dead release in the ramp. Played with it a bunch and it truly makes that shot more satisfying and flies through without resistance at any speed.

#6 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

For the custom name/date option, do you recommend a min/max number of letters for the name?

Yes. 7-8 characters max each for the first and last name are what seems to be needed to reliably print. In CAD it looks fine when smaller, but when actually printing, it reveals that some barriers were too small and disappear.

#8 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

These look great. I’m not loving the pop bumper mods because they just don’t seem to “fit”. They remind me of black and white cookies and not cleavage and don’t go with the house theme.
Thinking the crypt and gargoyle mods are going to be must haves. Maybe the Gonk house too, though I admit I didn’t know the reference until I looked it up.
Nice work!

I agree that the cleavage pops are the most out of place, and I never expected them to be a popular option (part of the reason I waited to release everything at once). I do think they are pretty funny and could see some people wanting to change it up every once in awhile.

I believe Lermods plans to make some 3D floater pops, and those could prove to be the better match to the pool area in that space.

And ha. I saw the Elvira movie at a young age, and my mother dressed up as Elvira in the late 80s...turning our pet schnauzer-poodle into Gonk (colored mohawk and all)--this became a permanent look for that dog going forward So I had to incorporate Gonk somehow. Wanted to create the casserole monster, but didn't know how to fit it in (I must have been about 4 or so when I first saw the movie [didn't realize anything sexualized about it back then], and I was always reminded of the casserole monster whenever I saw an earthworm).

#15 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

This might be a strange question, but are the tops of the crypt mod interchangeable? I like the mech version, but wondering if I’ll get tired of/annoyed with the clicking sound. Might want to have both versions but that might be impractical if the tops can’t be swapped out without removing/replacing the entire mod.

With the glass on, you'll have to focus on it to hear the clicking (basically silent with any audio volume).

Otherwise, the tops aren't interchangeable as they're adhered with super glue and reinforced with hot glue from the inside before painting stages.

#22 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

Would like to customize my crypt. Originally thought of using a family name and date, but then thought of this:
Threevum
Deadhead
1989-2019
Pays tribute to the trilogy (“three of them”) with release years of EATPM and HOH but might be too subtle or silly. What do you guys think?

I think it's pretty clever. Definitely the sort of thing that would prompt a question of what it means, then get a smile when informed of how cheesy it is

Elvira is inherently rather slapstick and silly, so it wouldn't be out of place.

Have a few LE owner's going with:

Elvira's
HOH LE
#???/400

Neat to see what people are coming up with.

#30 1 year ago

With nearly 30 people on the list currently, I've been building Elvira parts as quick as I can while finishing up the last of the open ACNC orders (shipping today).

Running four printers on Elvira parts, but one full set takes about 18 hours to print amongst 12 separate printed parts, so we'll see where I end up for run #1. I'll be away this weekend with gaps in internet service, so I'll update Monday night at the latest if I miss any PMs, etc.

Planning to ship what I can make for run #1 by Friday (17th), and that should give me a better idea on timeline going forward.

I appreciate all of the interest thus far. I believe it was the largest interest I've had in one day, and I hope the mods live up to expectations or exceed them. All of them are designed as one-screw mods (aside from the pops), so installation will also be super easy this time around.

#31 1 year ago

Still trying to get these ready to ship tomorrow, but it would be cutting it close if it's possible, so Saturday may be the best expectation.

Looking like I'll be shipping 10 orders out for run #1 (intend to ship run #2 by the 25th--will be a larger run if possible, and I won't be away from home this time around [was away on a cruise over the weekend, so I couldn't produce parts]).

Everyone that ships in run #1 will be updated with tracking information by Saturday evening at the latest.

#33 1 year ago

With the final parts just off the printer for the first run (had some set-backs with machine and print issues this week, but wanted to get at least 1/3 of the list in run #1), I'll be cleaning, sanding, assembling,smoothing, and painting these through the night. Pops also ready but not pictured (they get wire-wheeled before sanding). Will need proper drying time on the final clear stages before final mech assembly, so as noted, Saturday shipping date is looking more realistic.

Puts into perspective how many parts are going into these runs

#36 1 year ago
Quoted from Sethman:

whats the Dead head crypt looking building and small white skulls in the bottom right corner of your picture?

Alice Cooper mod

Shhh. Not suppose to see that . Hopefully the customer doesn't mind it wound up visible in that pic (not intended). Should look neat when finished.

#37 1 year ago

Despite my best efforts, and only about 3.5 hours of sleep since starting on this batch (in fear of missing the deadline today), I'm clearly not going to be able to make the 4pm USPS cut-off.

I am at least at the tail end of painting and will post photos here very soon.

Grossly underestimated how long it would take me to prep/assemble/paint these, so these will ship out on Tuesday due to the MLK holiday on Monday.

Sorry for this delay over my estimate. I appreciate everyone's patience.

Edit: Have yet another new 3D printer slated to arrive tomorrow (through Amazon) in attempt to keep up with part building (lost a couple printers during this run and can't seem to get them to function properly [have some parts coming in for those as well]). Based on this run, I can see any ambition to do more than 10 orders for run #2 won't be possible, but I'll still be trying the keep on schedule for run #2's estimated ship date.

#38 1 year ago

Photos of run #1 here. Made one extra Gonk House in this batch and an extra set or two of the grass pieces, so a very small head start on run #2. Everything aside from the pops are without any clear coat here (they get a mix of matte and gloss--namely gloss on the grass portions and matte everywhere else).

Covered up one custom casket as the recipient didn't request it and it's a secret for now. Ended up having 2 of the 11 casket tops I had fail QC (discovered after I posted the parts photo), so I had to make another, and I opted to do something I hope the customer doesn't hate

#42 1 year ago
Quoted from Squeakman:

I don’t own this game, but have to say I like the idea of the pop bumper cap boobs. Is there a way you could make it more obvious what they are? Maybe small nipples or something like that? a big part of the whole Elvira persona is the big boobs.

May be hard to notice in the photos, but they do in fact have small nipples

Just took a photo that helps see them a bit better (they do blend with the black):

#44 1 year ago

Run #1 Shipped out today. Will PM tracking numbers later tonight.

#46 1 year ago
Quoted from littlecammi:

That's grea... Darn! I just remembered I got stuck in batch #2.

I can confirm you're in this 2nd batch EDIT: Also, expecting to ship run #2 out on Monday (1/27). Will be at least 10 orders in this run as well.

Below are the instructions that shipped with run #1. May change them if anyone points out anything that's unclear (or needs photos), though installation is pretty straightforward this time around as they're only one screw each and only one way to install.

Also, for anyone that likes to see the making-of/behind-the-scenes, I've posted the notes I took when measuring (as I don't own the game, I needed to take everything at once, and I expect it mostly looks like chicken scratch).

Top of that image has the poor sketch I made when trying to show my finacee the mechanical aspect I wanted to create. Originally I planned to have heads that popped up out of the casket, but the action happens so fast you'd never see them.

#49 1 year ago
Quoted from RebelGuitars:

Received mine today. Excellent work as always![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Glad to know they arrived safe and that the first reported install went well

Huge thanks for the pictures! Your Gonk House photo is the first that shows the production version installed. My previous media on the Gonk House shows that the factory label underneath could still be seen, so that was remedied before run #1 parts were made (also a slight fitment adjustment was made from the prototype I had shown [looks good here]).

And of course your positive feedback is appreciated While first runs of a new mod are exciting for me, I'm also a bit nervous as I await the response on them. So far so good...

I do hope these bring some added satisfaction to those shots, and enhance the fun and aesthetic overall--even when the game is off.

#52 1 year ago
Quoted from Blackzarak:

Where do I sign up for a set of 1 of each I own a LE and would love to add this to my already sexy Elvira.

Still doing pre-orders through PM (pricing will be a little higher once these hit the shop).

I'll note your place on the waitlist now. Run #4 is where the list is currently filling at.

Just send me a PM and I'll confirm everything you want.

I appreciate your interest

#55 1 year ago
Quoted from ZMeny:

SDTM Install Video
Uhhh these are a must BUY BUY BUY!!!!

Seems this video has in fact grabbed some additional interest.

Going through the PMs now. Likely filling run #5 at this point.

Again, I appreciate all of the interest and positive feedback these are getting. Also everyone's patience as I get through them. Thank you!

#56 1 year ago

Still plugging away at run #2 (currently in paint stages). Hoping to ship tomorrow if possible, but Wednesday at the very latest. 5 custom caskets in this run, and I'll post them soon for those interested in seeing what others come up with and how they turned out.

Total list is at about 60 now (~40 left once this run ships), so there's a bit of a wait on the back end right now. Trying to make it 10 orders in 7 days, and taking steps toward fulfilling that.

I just purchased a 3rd new 3D printer that should be here Wednesday (was still unable to get any of my three older ones working for this run [one dead heat bed, and the others jamming mid print--new ones are each running like a champ]). As noted, with full sets taking about 18 hours each to print (not all parts passing QC), it's been tough to get ten sets of parts together quick enough with what I've had available (most orders have been for everything aside from the pops, and several have ordered multiple sets).

Definitely wasn't prepared for this level of interest, nor the time it takes to tackle 100s of PMs and document everything (while also still making other mods), but Pinsiders have been awesome in understanding the time these take. Thank you!

Run #2 includes:

1) JFH
2) Mayboyz
3) RobertStone0407
4) Blakester
5) Racerx61
6) LittleCammi
7) JETJIMBO777
8 ) rapidraw
9) zucot
10) rlslick

Tracking by Wednesday night at the latest.

Added 20 months ago:

EDIT: Now Amazon is showing a Friday delivery for the new printer.

#58 1 year ago

Run #2 shipped today. Here's a couple pics I have on my phone of the main pieces (poor yellow lighting for the caskets--will look better in person [closer to the wall color in the gargoyle photo]).

Tracking will be sent to everyone later on when I'm at my computer.

#60 1 year ago
Quoted from ToucanF16:

How long does it take to get the printer unpacked, assembled and dialed in?

~30 minutes (most of the printer is already assembled in the case of the machines I'm buying [completely DIY kits do exist]). Faster on subsequent builds without the need for instructions, and dialing it in is likely quicker if you're already familiar with 3D printers. These last two new ones have worked perfect on the first shot each time (after just adjusting the bed level, then throwing a full bed of prints at it [all belts, wheels, etc. were solid out of the box]). CR10 V2 model (as mentioned in PM, far superior to the CR10 in every way).

#62 1 year ago

Orders that have made run #3:

1) Vino
2) Cgpinhead
3) Pinb1
4) calprog
5) Wheel_Jack
6) Vivid Psychosis
7) BackAlleyMatt
8 ) IndyPin
9) drbrain
10) Indusguys

Tentatively shipping on Wednesday (2/5).

#67 1 year ago
Quoted from rlslick:

Greg, these mods are amazing!!! Definitely appreciate all of the detail that went into them. Installing tonight! Don’t miss out on these Elvira owners, a must have!![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I appreciate the positive feedback and recognition of the detail work (paint alone on these runs is a significant undertaking--5 color stages on the grassy mounds for example, that will mostly disappear in pinball lighting/distance ).

Thank you for the photos! Hopefully I get a chance to see them installed as well Always awesome to see when my work makes it into games.

#69 1 year ago
Quoted from KrustyBurger:

I couldn't be more in agreement. And I should preface this by stating I'm not much of a 'mod' guy - but these creations are first rate. Moreover, they look like they were part of the original design of the machine, only later to be taken out by the manufacturer due to cost constraints. Seriously, Stern should partner with Greg on these and include them with future builds of Elvira. They look completely OEM...... if not better.
I realize that mods can be pricey, but if you're on the fence and want to add a little dressing to your machine, at least order the casket / coffin. You won't be disappointed!

I never know how to respond to such glowing reviews, but I'm truly thankful that my mods are appreciated by so many, and that they're enhancing the pinball experience.

Appearing factory is always one of my main goals when designing mods. On Elvira, this meant things such as making sure the HoF target text and Elvira's hair wasn't covered at all on that plastic under the gargoyle, as doing so would be a clear giveaway that they weren't factory (was a challenge to cover the VUK with a good looking head while keeping within that thin boundary [I almost went a route that would have been easier to design and produce, but my friend with the Elvira was adamant that I kept to my original plan of the gargoyle head, so I made it happen, and I'm glad I did]).

Run #3 should hopefully be on the way tomorrow (an 11 set run), though drying between stages and final curing time may have me hold off shipping until Friday. Wish I could get through these faster given the waitlist, but at nearly 60 hours of labor per run (and 150+ hours of printed parts [mostly built during work on the previous run]), it's proving hard to attempt a full run in the 7 day time-frame I've been trying for.

Will post those that make it into run #4 soon (waiting on a couple payments before making the cut).

#71 1 year ago
Quoted from PunishersLEMC:

Anxiously paid prior and excited. Awesome mods

Most have done the same, and it's appreciated. Does help me streamline without having to send extra PMs, and easier to plan parts I'll need (particularly for custom orders I don't build until payment).

And thank you for the positive feedback

#72 1 year ago

Had started on this last leg of painting (just grass segments and metal accents left) some hours ago with the intention of working until I ship mods by 6pm tomorrow (I generally work through the night), but am without power currently with the storm. Hoping it comes back soon, otherwise I may bump this to a Sat. shipment.

Will work on what I can with flashlights until then (prefer not to paint this way). EDIT: Still without power at 1:50, but have made progress on prepping parts for run #4

Printers are also stopped unfortunately, but parts for run #4 (aside from custom orders that haven't been paid for) are ready for when I get to the prep stages this weekend. On the bright side, all of these new model machines I have can resume prints after an outage.

Still waiting on a few people in run #4 to pay before posting the list.

New orders are currently filling run #7.

For those that like seeing these, here's a photo from yesterday that shows the custom caskets from run #3 (missing grass and metal hinge paint of course).

Run #3:
20200208_135449 (resized).jpg

1 week later
#76 1 year ago

Hoping to have run #4 shipped Tuesday or Wednesday.

If you have any general update questions, please ask them here instead so everyone can see the update. I'm working 7 days a week on mods, and am still getting a wall of PMs every day asking when mods are shipping or for personal updates.

I'm also working on existing Judge Dredd, BSD, ACNC, RZ, and Ghostbusters mod orders (from which I'm also getting update messages).

I put a ton of hours into mods each week, and the constant PMs make me feel like I'm not doing enough to keep customers happy. Didn't even have the time to do what I wanted for my fiancee for Valentine's Day yesterday (didn't sleep Thursday night as I worked on mods for nearly 20 hours straight with hopes of finishing what I set out to do before getting everything together before she got home from work on V-Day), and had multiple requests for updates while spending time with her.

I'm just one guy doing all of these from home, and I've never had anywhere close to the demand for my mods as I now have. Most would say I've priced them too low given the demand, but I've kept pricing the same thus far as I believe it's fair. I just can't keep up with the demand (even if I had more printers), and I'm getting 100s of PMs that also take up a lot of time to go through. Trying to keep the excess messaging to a minimum as it's becoming a great source of anxiety.

These mods have many stages to go through with several overnight drying stages, and the detail I put into them is something I'm not willing to sacrifice to get them out quicker.

Sorry for any delays as I work on these and many other mods. Trying to keep as many customers happy as I can, and for those further down the list, I hope these prove to be worth the wait.

Pinsiders have been awesome when it comes to understanding these take time, and your patience has been greatly appreciated.

#78 1 year ago

Shipping tomorrow. Will finish the grass paint today and clear coat later on (build the mech parts once cured). Custom caskets from this run shown below. Fonts have always been my choice and a mystery to the customer until this point (hopefully no disappointments thus far).

Quoted from zwartepanter:

Beautifull things need time. Patience is a nice thing.

I appreciate the sentiment

Even surprising to me how many hours go into these, particularly in all the prep stages before paint. Feel like I'll be able to get through a pile of parts (exacto knife detailing, sanding, gluing, smoothing layers [getting rid of the worst of the print lines], final sanding, etc.) in a short while, but the hours just keep piling on (wouldn't want to know how many pinball podcast re-runs I go through in the process ). 115+ separate printed parts in this run alone (each going through many stages of detailing)
20200218_130614 (resized).jpg

#82 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Take your time! I don’t even have an Elvira (yet!) but these are just so great looking, I’m moving it up in the queue to get one. Don’t sweat it if you have to take a bit longer to finish - they are worth it! That 7 day window is aggressive

Glad to hear these have increased your motivation to get the game

And while this cadence hasn't been great for my physical or mental health, there's just too many orders to slow down (already a fair bit behind on my Pinside shop orders I try to throw out shipping estimates on and fail to make). Once I have cash in hand, I stress until I get the order fulfilled, and can see it will be this way for awhile. Unfortunately I am getting PMs that show customers getting antsy, and the above message was prompted after a PM that seemed to suggest concern that I'd just disappear--I hope my reputation here is strong enough for others to know that will never happen.

As noted, I'll learn from it, and once the dust settles, I can plan future releases a bit better.

Ultimately a good problem to have. When I started offering mods 2.5 years ago, I could have only dreamed my work would receive the response it has here. Truly appreciated.

#86 1 year ago
Quoted from PunishersLEMC:

medisinyl These are run #4 ? I can't wait

Yep, run #4 (12 sets). Wish I could get through them faster myself

Quoted from jfh:

I did not originally order a doghouse or the front two grass pieces. If I were to order them now, what’s the likelihood that the new grass coloring would match my casket grass coloring enough so you wouldn’t notice the difference?

All colors used on the grass are done separate and aren't a custom mix as some of my mods are, so the result should be pretty darn close.

#89 1 year ago

Run #5 will be:

1) Swydooghe
2) GAP66
3) wcbu64
4) gipinball
5) Medfly
6) Toucan16

8 ) iceman44

#95 1 year ago

Planning to ship run #5 on Monday.

Working through a wall of other orders that were paid before the current Elvira runs, so this run interval is looking a bit slower. Hopefully back to a quicker cadence for run #6 and beyond.

For those that like the behind the scenes look, here's a couple pics I took of the unprepped parts near the final product. The gargoyle and grass/casket sections were designed with interlocking sections for accuracy and strength when gluing them together (posts for the gargoyle, and rectangles on the grass and casket).

Some of the prints come out very stringy (seems hit or miss, and perhaps has something to do with the crazy temperature swings).

The grass pieces are always stringy, but I go over all of them in detail with an exacto knife to cut them away before paint (and during paint as they reveal themselves).

#97 1 year ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

Woot! Run number 6 soon then.

You'll be in run #6 for sure. Near 100% retention of the interest list (unexpected based on past interest lists of mine) will likely throw some of my run predictions off for some orders (especially during the period I was inundated with PMs and giving an idea before processing everything).

I'll soon send out final reminders to those that would make run #6 and haven't paid yet, and will post the run #6 list when I know for sure.

#99 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Do you have a shroud/enclosure for your printer? Helps quite a bit with the temperature swings

I don't, but I looked up what that would mean for my machines, and can see that would be cumbersome in an already crowded room.

Of course most of the year we don't have 30-80* temperature swings within 24 hours :p

#101 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Well shoot... this mod convinced me to join the Elvira3 club! (LE #383!). I assume I can just send you a PM? I am knocked out by your painting skills...

Yep, PM is still the way I'm taking orders for now. Once I finally ship the last run of the growing list, I'll add them to the shop (harder to explain a waitlist backlog to those seeing "in stock" in the shop).

And that's some awesome feedback on these. Thank you! Easier for me to just see those that are more skilled than I, and strive to improve where I can, but the positive response I've gotten on these has been truly appreciated.

Wednesday is looking like the more realistic ship date for run #5 (seems to be ending up a couple days after I estimate each time, so clearly I'm terrible at estimating ). Will be back on these 100% tonight, and will be upping run #6 capacity to 12 orders. Other mods (made runs of all my Alice mods, so there's a handful available again) and crazy market volatility have forced some of my attention this past week.

Run #6 will be:

1) Minwick
2) FarminSharman
3) cdonnerusmc
4) JimSheffield
5) Jetcom1121
6) benjn
7) Ethviking31
8 ) Challenger1128
9) javagrind888
10) PunishersLEMC
11) NimblePin
12) Fuseholder

EDIT: Currently filling run #10, and perhaps #11 soon if most come through with payments on the list, so there's still a fair wait at the tail end on these. Though as noted, I believe run #6 and onward should go a bit faster at this point as I near the end of other mod orders and now have some stock of ACNC mods again.

#104 1 year ago

Still plugging away. Guaranteed to ship tomorrow.

Custom caskets from this run:

#105 1 year ago

Tracking numbers will be PM'd when I'm home later tonight.

#109 1 year ago
Quoted from PunishersLEMC:

Just wondering how run 6 is progressing.. Also friendly reminder I had multiple items added to my order at different times
Stoked to get all the custom pieces

Shipped run #5 on Thursday and was away over the weekend, but I do have progress on run #6 already (all parts built aside from custom casket tops that I'll likely make in CAD tonight, and the lower caskets have been cleaned and assembled). I'm planning to have them out by Saturday. Will aim for Friday, but as noted, my estimates haven't been great and there are several curing periods between the adhesive, pre-paint smoothing coats, paint, and final clear.

I do have several updates in my notes for your order

Quoted from marspinball:

So what's the price for the full mechanical set less the pop bumpers?

$249 + $7.99 shipping within the US. So $256.99 shipped total (+$10 for a custom casket lettering/date section).

#111 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

By the way, what printer are you using? I’ve gotten some amazing mileage out of my Ender3 but I’m about to throw it out the window with how finicky it is to level. After. Every. Single. Print.

Currently using three CR10 V2 Printers. Superior in every way to the CR10s I was using, which had several issues for me.

First CR10 V2 I got was from my fiancee for Christmas, and I bought two more.

Have only needed to set the level once on each after these months and still no issue. I can also use the entire bed without issue (CR10s I was using always had an issue with this and needing lots of fiddling if I switched what I was printing).

#113 1 year ago

Run #6 ultimately ended up 14 orders total, so my largest run yet. Likely have to ship on Monday. 8 custom orders ended up taking nearly an entire day on their own, and proving to be a great hindrance for the cost (also means I can't plan ahead for those parts, and if anything goes wrong with a custom part, I have to wait for a free printer, plus a few hours to have a new part made--with a non-custom, I have extras on hand for any QC issues). Anyone that got a quote earlier on for a custom order is locked into that price, but for future orders, the custom casket price is now $20. The custom casket option will likely be discontinued once these hit the shop and I can no longer fill runs.

Sent out some PM reminders for run #7.

Currently run #7 is looking like:

1) Jackalwere
2) Pinb1
3) Cyrus
4) ckorth
5) Roon
6) Drew13
7) KLR2014
8-10+) Unpaid thus far. There's a chunk of paid orders down the list that I'll put in this run if I don't have a response from the others by Sunday.

I'll likely go beyond 10 orders on run #7 as well once I know where I'm at.

Ultimately adding orders to each run is already showing that I'll be one run ahead for most run # estimates (if I suggested you'd be in run #9, most should be in run #8 instead).

#116 1 year ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

Can we get pics of run #6? I love seeing everyone's customs.

Should have some uploaded here tomorrow night

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Yeah ! Paid before promises! Lol

Ha Perhaps poor wording on my part. Some on the list disappear or want to be reminded when their run is soon to be built before paying (always an option). And I know some that have paid are checking to see if they make the run (just a reminder to check back after Sunday for the updated list).

#119 1 year ago
Quoted from zwartepanter:

Coming near mine...

Very close to yours. Was a slight chance you'd be in run #7, but looking less likely now as payments come in ahead. Definitely run #8 at the latest.

#123 1 year ago
Quoted from tatman9999:

Getting close to mine. Can’t wait to see how it works with the bone ramps.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Love the Scared Stiff mods on your game (put the same flippers in my RZ). I had seen your game in the main thread and was already looking forward to seeing how you put it all together with these mods

Otherwise, still hoping to get custom photos up tonight, but likely in the a.m hours as I paint through the night (while it's not supposed to be an option, there is a custom dog house name in this run). Had another small setback earlier today with a custom casket I had to redesign and reprint (didn't notice the issue until finishing up the pre-paint work today). Shipped some other work out earlier and will be painting these soon (ton of hours go into painting, so I'll likely have to finish the second half over the weekend).

Still projecting faster than most runs for work days as I was away over the weekend and last moment hosted a birthday get together yesterday (had generally been working 7 days a week beforehand). Also the largest run yet at 14 sets. I expect I'll bump run #7 to at least 12.

#124 1 year ago

Only have the first coat done on the purple stone thus far (did the gray stone first). To finish just the purple stone parts on this run, it will take 171 total passes of paintwork (I always make an extra casket lid just in case).

Posting a preview of the custom caskets in this run to show the text. They'll get looked over before the next paint stage for any inner text stringing that's revealed.

Will post pictures of the finished caskets before shipping. Text will pop more once the lighter detail colors are finished.

#126 1 year ago

Run #7:

1) Jackalwere
2) Pinb1
3) Cyrus
4) ckorth
5) Roon
6) Drew13
7) KLR2014
8 ) leeriley
9) NeilMcRae
10) bigehrl
11) nexfx
12) zwartepanter (had one ahead disappear, and a paid buyer that wants more time for his custom casket decision, so I got you in #7 )

Otherwise, I ended up leaving Saturday morning to look at a car down south (bought it) and visit my fiancee's family--didn't get back home until 1am. Started prepping my previous daily for sale yesterday, and tackling last minute corona-prep shopping.

I did paint until about 4am last night, so progress has been made, but tomorrow would be the earliest I can ship at this point.

#128 1 year ago

Run #6 ships today. Complete aside from the three pop sets I'm finishing up now, and assembling the casket lids.

Fireflyman1 has also been added to run #7, so it will be a 13 order run.

#129 1 year ago

Will send out tracking tomorrow.

The vast majority of these shipped out earlier today (before final pickup), so most are on the way.

Quoted from calprog:

Is the house available? Looks awesome!

Gonk's dog house? If so, then yes it's available. Should be more information and pricing in the first post. Zack at SDTM on YouTube also did a video on the Elvira mods that shows installation.

#136 1 year ago
Quoted from Pin_-_K:

Greg, these look AMAZING in our Game !!
Meant to post last week after I put them in, better late than never.[quoted image][quoted image]

This may make your custom casket my favorite thus far. The Bony Beast spine adds perfect context here

Also gives me confidence that the mods will look great in tatman's game as well.

#138 1 year ago
Quoted from Pin_-_K:

FYI - that date is someone's that's very special and responsible for Elvira's legacy [now trilogy] !
What's Tatman doing to his game?!?
Pics REQUIRED !!

Post #122

Hopefully we'll see final pics once he gets his mods

#139 1 year ago

Run #8 will be another 13 sets:

1) Kaiserstadt
2) fast1981
3) fattrain (2 sets)
4,5,6,7,8) Macca101010 and friends.
9) Pozzest01
10) jmatlack
11) Pinstein
12) Ftrmech

Will get some pics up soon of Run #7 .

#141 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Dang! Was hoping we’d make run 8

Looks like you'll just make the cut-off for run #9 (one earlier than quoted I believe)

#145 1 year ago

Sorry for the delay in run #7 updates. Was in the hospital for 18 hours until last night (I'm okay). Taking a mental health break today, but will be finishing the run up soon.

#151 1 year ago

I appreciate the well wishes. Without going into details, it's been a rough week emotionally and mentally.

Small update here on run #7. Custom caskets in base-paint stage. Also showing the extra step I took for the Domino Arcade casket. The customer isn't aware (until now perhaps), but I took the liberty to look up their arcade sign and recreate it by hand (knew I had seen it posted somewhere before). Hope he digs it.

This sort of detail isn't something I offer to be requested, but at times I throw a surprise in on the customs.

Again, all the lettering will pop much better once the final details are painted.
20200402_235948 (resized).jpg20200402_235948x (resized).jpg

#152 1 year ago

Hopefully done with these tomorrow. Just need to finish the grass portions and make the pop bumpers before final clear and assembly.

Sorry again for the slow down here with little progress over the last week for work. My fiancee left me last week and I've lost ten pounds in 7 days. Still hoping to fix it all, but it doesn't seem likely thus far.

#156 1 year ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

^^ Sorry to hear that, brother. Focus on the important things and keep looking ahead!

I appreciate all of the kind words here.

Of course getting customers their products in a reasonable timeframe is also important to me, despite the unexpected life hurdle. Been stressful with the backlog of paid orders as I worry about keeping everyone happy. I know most don't realize how many lists are running (backlog on RZ and Alice mods as well), and my mods generally take a long time to create.

Was never this hectic before the Elvira mods, and mod orders for everything I offer either haven't slowed or have picked up. Never thought my mod work would be so well received, and I can't thank everyone enough for the opportunity to create these and see them in other machines. Just hope I don't upset too many with the long turnaround times at the back end.

My personal life isn't something I want to post about here, but I feel everyone with an order placed deserves to know why this run didn't ship last week.

#158 1 year ago
Quoted from littleoak:

Hi, I was wondering if you are still taking orders for Elvira HOH mods? Thanks

I appreciate your interest.

I'm currently filling run #11 and taking orders through PM.

Once the runs are complete, these will be added to the shop.

#164 1 year ago

Run #7 is all boxed up.

Shipping Domestic orders today (EDIT: Tracking sent) and international tomorrow (EDIT 2: Tracking sent).

1 week later
#167 1 year ago

Run #8 will ship by the end of the week. Been busy with Alice and RZ runs in between these latest Elvira runs (got myself behind on everything, but making progress at a normal rate again). Again, the patience has been appreciated. I couldn't overstate the importance of the support I've had from the pinball community.

Otherwise, lots of good feedback from run #7 in PMs, but I think we all like to see installed pics

#170 1 year ago
Quoted from Pozzest01:

Sorry to bother ya but any updates, pictures? I'm so excited to get my mods from you. Hope you are doing well. Stay healthy people!

Making progress on them currently and will be through the night and tomorrow. Update pictures by tomorrow evening . Looking more like a Monday ship day.

#171 1 year ago

Unfortunately I've had a batch of 5 custom casket lids fail on me toward the end of a 10 hour print (I had intended to post early paint pics today, but that won't be possible). Had 11 customs I put together last night/earlier today. The customs do add a lot of time to the runs, especially when there's no spares for print failures and QC issues.

Just unjammed that machine and replaced the bowden tube. First time I've had a good looking piece of filament completely fuse itself within a Bowden tube (can't discern what happened despite being able to see through the tube and cutting the tube up). These newer machines have generally been stellar. Hopefully no more issue there (will switch machines if it happens again [others currently running other parts], and perhaps dump that spool of filament [have had a bad spool before]). (EDIT: current print attempt looking good so far).

Still have over 100 non-Elvira mods I've been trying to get to as well, and made tons of progress there this week, but did fall short of my goal before needing to get back to run #8 (unfortunately customers are tugging me at all ends). Preorders in January alone for my mods equated to about 25 weeks worth of work at 40 hours a week, which is why I was doing 60+ a week for much of the earlier time-period in attempt to get ahead of it. I do believe there has been more backlogged workload than some realize (based on PMs). ~8x normal orders in January, and an unusual chunk in Feb. as well into the first half of March.

Of course I did lose a chunk of time with recent events, and I'm sorry for that delay.

All other parts are already ready to go for run #8. Just need to paint everything at the same time to be efficient.

For now, here's an idea for some of the custom caskets (not shown are a couple familiar format LEs and a remake of a casket from the previous run that I made a number mistake on).
20200425_154242 (resized).jpg20200425_154322 (resized).jpg

#172 1 year ago

...and finally have all the parts out successfully Will get pics up tomorrow night of where I'm at with run #8.

I had another couple curl on me on the second attempt of that last batch that needed another 4 hour print today (used more of the print bed than normal given the number of customs in this batch, which was no issue for the other printer, but this one needed to be re-leveled a bit for that far side to adhere properly).

Normally I make the custom caskets at the start of the run rather than last, and any issues are resolved before they get in the way of delaying paint prep like this. Life is still a bit unpredictable, but my ex-fiancee came by for the third and likely final time to move her stuff to a storage bay (have taken any moment I can to talk to her in an attempt to salvage the relationship, and while she still seems to be mixed on the decision, there's unfortunately been no luck there).

--

On a more positive note, this ordeal has gotten me to post to social media for the first time (not counting rare photo posts). Did so on the 21st (karaoke cover of Duran Duran's Ordinary World), and that's a lot of what helped make this past week a productive one for me with mod work. I'm on the autism spectrum, so this sort of thing hits me hard, and I desperately needed some connection to people and something to look forward to. I'm generally a shy, private person, so this is the first time friends and family are seeing me sing (and first many will see me play guitar once I post a video of that).

For those curious, my FB is : https://www.facebook.com/gregory.s.jones.50 That first karaoke video should be at the top of my page (other countries may have some of it muted due to a copyright issue on the music).

--

Sending messages out to anyone that would be in run #9 that have yet to pay and I'll get that list up as soon as it's finalized (most have paid).

#175 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

That was a great performance! I’m in a band (I sing and do guitar) and we tried that song a few gosh, months ago, I guess. It is HARD! Great tune, great version of it. Keep on rockin!

Quoted from Macca101010:

Great voice mate, thanks for sharing. My son is also on the spectrum so understand where your coming from.
Take your time on the mods, I'm sure they will look amazing as usual.

I appreciate the positive feedback guys, and especially from a gigging musician . I was very insecure and lacked confidence for most of my life when it came to this sort of thing, so I've generally kept any guitar playing or singing to myself. I didn't start singing at all until recent years. Now I try not to worry as much about what others may think (I'm 35 now). I've done a few open mics in the past, but again it was during times of other stress in my life that made it possible to ignore the stage-fright so to speak.

Just posted a guitar clip to my page as well.

#177 1 year ago

Just listing those in run #9 that have already paid and are guaranteed to make it in. More will be added soon (some that have already paid and not listed may be bumped in if others opt out).

1) PDX-Mike
2) Chrono86
3) Mudflaps
4) legui
5) kse001
6) BillyPilgrim
7) gandaft
8 ) Rdoyle1978

EDIT:
9) Darth-Grayder
10) dnaman

List should end up at 12 sets. Most should already be seeing a run bump over the original quote given the additional sets I've made in most runs since the first runs, so hopefully that helps bridge some of the mental gap over the recent delays.

#178 1 year ago

Still plan on getting some pics up tonight. Just may be in the a.m hours.

EDIT: 3am...still the plan :p

#179 1 year ago

56 base purple pieces painted so far.

Had to sleep after that photo, but will post another update here tonight.

#183 1 year ago

Will keep plugging away on paint for another couple hours tonight, but close enough to know these will *finally* ship out on Thursday (tomorrow).

Really like how the Barry DeLyve casket is turning out. I do wonder if the customer that requested the Seymour Butz casket was aware of how the "HOH LE" would likely be interpreted after those words, haha (may very well have been the reason they went with it)

Making my cut and bumping a couple previously paid orders into run #9 (had a couple not respond back).

#185 1 year ago
Quoted from ZMeny:

Damn these are successful mods

Yep, an absolutely crazy and unexpected response on these I'm sure your video was a significant boost, and super appreciated, though even day one got a surprising number of pre-orders. Feel guilty that I charged you for the Elvira mods given the awesome video you graciously made (hopefully the Alice mods helped balance it out a bit for now). Seeing your videos on my work really has been one of the coolest things I've experienced with modding.

My biggest "hits" before Elvira was for games limited to 300 and 500 games, which may have helped keep the orders more gradual and manageable.

Looking forward to getting all current orders behind me and having time for new development. Will try to plan better on future mod releases.

#188 1 year ago

At USPS now. Getting 10 of the sets out today and will ship the last few tomorrow.

#190 1 year ago

The others did ship today. Tracking numbers will be sent later tonight.

#193 1 year ago
Quoted from blimpey:

I got mine in today. Easy install. Awesome upgrade.
[quoted image]

Awesome! Thank you for the before/after photo, and for the positive feedback

#195 1 year ago
Quoted from Da_Topper:

Do you think your mod will still work with the extra plastic protector I have underneath the factory one?
[quoted image]

The mod is designed to the fraction of a millimeter for most parts, so it's likely that extra height would cause a problem in function and/or appearance. Gargoyle would sit higher (possibly a concern for the exiting ball), not fit properly on that post, and perhaps cause issues when mating against the casket and grass (or even an issue with the new lower wall height).

So I wouldn't recommend it, but if someone has already installed the mods with such a protector, perhaps they can chime in.

#197 1 year ago
Quoted from Da_Topper:

Can the Gargoyle’s bottom be filed down? Not sure what your mod is made of.

It's 3D printed with PLA. Several smoothing stages help reduce the majority of the 3D printed appearance, so these mods look nicer than a typical 3D printed part.

And while it would be possible to belt sand (or otherwise) material away, it would break through the outer wall, into the inner structure (not that it would be seen from the top if done well), and ultimately make the base of the wall look off I'd imagine.

As much as I'd like to offer a version that could fit here, adding another variable to the production on these would be more inefficient than desired.

#201 1 year ago
Quoted from Mark1971:

Just wanted to touch base and see what the eta of my order is, everything looks great

Not at my list right now, but looks like I quoted run #11 in the PM conversation (possibly #10 as I've been making more sets per run than I started out with, and some on the list disappear).

Currently filling run #13 I believe. Been a recent boost in orders after a couple different FB posts.

#203 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Which batch was sent out most recently? Seems like you are killing it making these!

#8 was shipped. Parts are getting put together on run #9, but the main focus has been RZ/ACNC this week so far.

#205 1 year ago

Update here by Friday with pics hopefully.

#206 1 year ago
Quoted from Medisinyl:

Will accept pre-orders through PM, and will list on my Pinside shop soon as well.

Seeing this from my first post looks rather funny to me now...not knowing what I was in for (and sorry for the false advertising as many have asked why they aren't in the shop yet). I had been used to 3-4 weeks of backlog work for initial pre-orders on previous mods (before normal, steady order rate returned), thus expecting to have these in the shop by early Feb.

I clearly wasn't even remotely prepared for the success of these mods, nor the rate all of my other mods have continued to receive orders (seemingly boosted by the Elvira exposure [and Zach's awesome videos, and other customer posts to FB, etc.]).

As I've said before, I can't thank everyone enough for the support, but I do fear the giant turnaround times dampen customer satisfaction. Easy for me to set-out on mod work thinking I'll get it done in no time, then the hours keep passing by with much less accomplished than expected. Something like an Alice lab, I can only average (in a run) two a day at most with how significant a project those are.

Thanks yet again to the patience most here have had with me on these.

#208 1 year ago

Quoted from noob-a-tron:

What is the shipping to Australia on these mods mate as we are getting killed on the exchange rate. Thinking of placing an order.

$24.99 is what I charge for international (cost to me is a bit higher as it's generally $24.50 to Australia for one set + the box and packing materials).

#232 1 year ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

Love it!![quoted image]

Thanks a ton for the posts. As always, I love seeing the custom caskets installed

My friend with the Elvira saw your posts and now wants to install some purple bulbs

---------------------------------------------------------------------

As I've had a second report on this (over the course of the entire production), I felt I should bring it up in case anyone else has had this issue with the right grass piece.

The upper screw on that right side should be countersunk and flush, but it seems Stern has made some of these with the wrong screw (despite the plastic underneath still beveled for countersunk).

This interferes with the grass portion as it lifts it in the front, and that's incorrect. On the first report I received, the customer was able to find a countersunk screw installed nearby and switched them around. Should this prove to be a larger problem than it seems (unreported issues), I would look into finding appropriate hardware to include.

Quoted from Mudflaps:

Not to hijack your thread, but I went with a purple theme (trim, speakers, t-molding, some LEDs). Cabinet is so-so, but blends well on the playfield.

Suits the game well and looks awesome. Only thing that sticks out now are the awful yellow flipper bats Stern uses on everything. Game deserves some Scared Stiff flipper bats

Quoted from RobertWinter:

Here's the first set I did for my game. The color washing is a little light for my taste but I have another set I washed darker that I'll swap in at some point.
I need to get rid of that ugly yellow pricing card too.
[quoted image]

Definitely an upgrade.

I had seen people were getting bare looking Scared Stiff pieces. When I got my bats for RZ, it seemed they were available with color on them already (don't recall where I got them though):

3) Dylanfan71
4) Nyo30
5) tktlwyr
6) Wake2wood
7) Joseph Fox (FB)
8 ) Welby Bergum (FB)
9) dforrest

With the new count, I can confirm that run #13 is what I'm currently filling.

Couple casket pics for now. The Random Gravity Arcade text was done different than usual.

Also, one casket will get special dagger lids as I failed to make a custom from the last run (didn't get into my hand written notes, so I made a standard one). Wanted to do something special to make up for the added delay, and to keep it special, it won't be offered for sale that way, but figure some may be interested to see the final pic before these ship.

In other news, I just picked up a TSPP, and my buddy got a Scared Stiff over the weekend (perhaps one or both will get a mod or two).

#251 1 year ago

Will have run pics up later today. Won't have everything wrapped/boxed by the shipping cutoff today, so they'll all go out tomorrow for sure now.

Wanted to show the custom casket with dagger-lids as they're the unique thing from this batch (final matte clear not applied here).

Again, this is a one-time thing to make up for missing this custom from run #9, but I figure others may like to see it anyway.

Quoted from Nyo30:

News LIST 11?????

Will post an update here soon. All parts are ready to assemble now. Each set takes about 18 hours to print, so each run is about 216 hours just to create the parts (unfortunately down to 2 working printers right now as well for all of my mods). Gonk houses are completed and painted too.

My main focus between these runs has been ACNC and RZ (already had parts ready to assemble), which have also had backlogs of orders for a long time.

There's still a waitlist building. May be run #14 that is filling currently, if not #15. Can PM to get on the list.

Quoted from TheRudyB:

Do give us a status update when you can as to which run is on deck, etc., Medisinyl.
Not in any hurry; just wondering how soon I’ll have to commit to my engraving text. I’ve been debating among three … and I keep waffling.

In the midst of run #11, which I hope to ship by the end of the week.

Looks like you'll make the cut for run #12.

#274 1 year ago

Pic update (grass is about to be painted on these). Need to make one last casket as well for this batch.

Drfrightner had a custom last run that didn't get in my notes, and as before when this has happened, I rethink some element to make it more unique--inverted with a tombstone silhouette this time around (lids are loosely placed for the photo).

Elvira casket was a repeat custom request, but it won't be getting the dagger lids as the previous one had.

Will start making the run #12 list Sunday night and send out some PMs around that time to those that would make the list and have yet to pay.

Intended to ship run #11 later today, but realizing now it's a holiday (result of social distancing and no plans). Will ship on Monday.

This is the mentioned casket that still needs to get painted up, but here's a mock-up in case that customer sees this post and wonders why his isn't in that pic.

#283 1 year ago

Looking like I may have packaged a 2nd Gonk house in a box in place of a gargoyle VUK piece yesterday (or similar error that has me with one less house than expected and one more VUK), so whenever that is found, it will be resolved ASAP.

#285 1 year ago
Quoted from teddyb73:

Do you have anymore for sale sir?

Still a waiting list running on these. May be run #15 that is filling currently, and I'm compiling #12 now. 12-14 sets per run get made.

Just PM me to get on the list. Away from home right now, so response time may be delayed.

Everything arrived this week. Looks awesome. Best mods for this game out there.
No brainer if you own this game.
Great job Greg.

I'm happy to know everything arrived safe and that you're enjoying the mods Thank you for the positive feedback!

#292 1 year ago

Should have a paint update here any day now. Bit behind as I've juggled these with TMNT development, finishing taxes, etc.

I appreciate everyone's patience. Good problem to have the demand I've had this year, but I know the turnaround times have been a pain.

#294 1 year ago
Quoted from DerezzedKnight:

Do you have a website? If you're still taking back orders, I'd like to get on the casket/gargoyle mod list.

I don't have a website, but can get you on the list and message you when your run is about to start (may be run #15 or #16 filling currently).

I appreciate your interest.

#295 1 year ago

Starting to put the run #13 list together, and have sent out 7 messages to those that opted to pay before production--will send out others to those next in line if those spots aren't taken (or add from those that have paid).

3) Joe-dirt
4) Hurryuppinball
5) Jobowens

Should have run #12 shipped out on Monday. Tracking in PMs by Monday night.

#299 1 year ago

In the midst of some CAD work for run #13.

For now, this is a casket that was supposed to get done in run #12, but I failed to note it down.

As I generally put some extra time into such delayed customs, I added the Dawn of the Dead face to this one. Pulled the poster image, hand traced some of the details, made it grayscale, cranked the contrast to full black/white, then transposed it to a 3D image for use in CAD.

Unmatched text sizing was an attempt to capture a bit of the Dawn of the Dead poster appearance.

Should have photos here of run #13 in a few days, and will send out run #14 messages this weekend.

Just ordered a 4th printer to help keep pace on Elvira orders (as the release of TMNT mods has proven to slow down Elvira parts too much).

Still keeping my main focus on these and other previous backlogs, while tackling TMNT on the side (generally working 7 days a week). I'm often working on other mods while I'm printing the full batch of Elvira mods.

Still need to get the clear coat on this before assembling the lids (will get rid of that un-stone-like sheen in the black), but it came out pretty nice (details were too fine to translate perfectly through the 3D printer, but should look great in the game).
