I've always liked this Monster Fish figure and decided to take it to the next level.

I've been working on this off and on since November, let me know what you think! It really ties in with the theme well.

Each figure is fitted w/ 3mm LEDs for the eyes that match the flash sequence to the monster fish "hurry-up" insert on the playfield. The wedge socket on the other end has a frosted cool white LED included.

This is a plug and play mod and takes less than 5 minutes to install. Unscrew one nut, install monster fish, run connector harness to bottom side of playfield, and connect socket.

Choose eye colors from: RED, ORANGE, GREEN, YELLOW or PURPLE !!!

My Monster Fish mod review:
Kudos to to Paul/theGiven for this mod. I received the Monster days after ordering. His communication was great. He sent along a tracking number, instructions for installation and his phone number if there were any issues. The quality of his work was fantastic. The mod installed easily as stated. I had one slight issue where a contact on the new socket didn't touch the circuit board enough, so I had to bend it a bit with a needle nose pliers. No big deal... a 2 second fix. I added a few zip ties to keep the new wiring in place and I was good to go. It's a neat little mod at a great price.

#10 4 years ago

That's awesome! When I get a Fish Tales I will def be putting this on.

Thank you for the great review Foo! The first batch of these went quick and have all shipped... I'm on to batch #2...and have more ready to go. Who wants a monster fish? !!!

That is awesome packaging

Have had some PM's asking about the socket that I am using so I thought I'd share with the group. It's a JKL 2933T and is available at most of the regular electronics suppliers. It's a great product for tapping into the 12v through the wedge socket.

You guys are awesome! I really think this mod is a perfect fit for this game. I'm glad others seem to agree and are enjoying it in their games!

The boxes are a mockup right? I have that same unmoded fish in mine and it's not that big. Great mod and looks great I might have to order this.

#21 4 years ago

ddebus - The boxes you are seeing are a self mailer that I bought from uline. A friend helped w/ the logo and creating the decal on the side. These are the boxes that the mod ships in! Each one is securely wrapped inside to arrive to you safely.

I know a lot of Fish Tales owners already have an un-moded figure in their game. I was one of them until I took on this project to find a way to make him interactive. It makes the experience completely new having his eyes flash in sequence when the monster fish jackpot is lit and breathes new life into the game. I hope you decide to get one, you won't regret it!

Hmmm kinda funny. I bought my monster fish mod from Australia a couple months ago. This mod was no where to be found. Wonder where the OP got his idea?

#32 4 years ago

Bought two of these for my FT. It was a breeze to instal and looks like it belongs there. Great job!

#33 4 years ago

I love this mod! It looks great with the LEDs. I don't see many on the machines here in Mnpls.

#34 4 years ago

Never words I'd use, but I appreciate your attempt at having my back. Definitely thought it was not cool for him to post his version in this thread. I have no issues with his version.

Quoted from tslayer71:

I started on this mod back in November...had not seen a version with lit eyes before mine. If one existed before then, then it is what it is. Closest thing I saw was someone had wired a spotlight to shine on it. Glad you are happy with the one you have.

For anyone looking for a custom look....I now am offering these with the following different colored eyes:
YELLOW
PURPLE
RED
GREEN
ORANGE

AWESOME MOD ... love mine and looks so cool. You did a great job!

#39 4 years ago

Bump for PURPLE!!!

It's mostly the photo, but of all the colors - green is the most intense and purple is the most subtle. All colors look cool in the game. It's really all about customizing your game to your preference!

#41 4 years ago

I want one pm sent just gotta figure out what color

#42 4 years ago

Red is the way to go. Makes the Monster fish look more crazed.

Happy Friday... weekend bump!

Ok, final bump/push on this.

Over 90 pinheads (mostly pinsiders....THANK YOU!) now have a MonsterFishMOD on their games.

I'm down to approximate 16 or 17 left with NO plans to make more once these are gone.

If you were on the fence, or even have Fish Tales on your wish list, now is the time to stash one before they are no longer available.

Thanks again Pinsiders for the amazing support!
