EDIT
22-3-16
Well the fun was taken out of this thread due to people who wanted to share their creative sides with mods and creative additions for Ghostbusters have been sent warnings to cease selling. So effectively if one of your ideas is a design that you want to sell and it includes a copyright / IP protected feature - like use of Ecto 1 license plate, Ecto 1 car, ghostbusters logo, firestation, actual library and probably some other gear - proceed with caution and advisable not to list here.
.
.
.
Original post tweaked to state this idea is not for sale anymore.
.
this is such a cool game which is so full with toys but can imagine there will still be some cool mods for this game. So thought a thread which acts like a GB mod index just for this game might be cool.

So any one making any mods or have mod ideas, if you want to add them into this thread linking back to your own thread / sale post would be cool. (Technically should be removed but was part of the original thread)

So the first post did capture a cool cheap and affordable mod for sale but forced to be removed from sale was a cool art magnet for the coin door showing the Ecto 1 license plate - no longer available or for sale which was made by beatmaster

another was a cool idea (not mine was Pinsider - squizz) for the Premium for LE treatment with white trim or might even be cool with glow in the dark luminous white trim

Good idea, 1 core thread might help every one get in touch with all possible mods for that awesome game.

I made a topper base that hides Comet Pinball Matrix led strip leds in a recess to light up a cool 7" slimer statue which is a real nicely painted resin statue which is on a spring above the ghost trap - giving you the bobble effect. The base can be fastened down and then simply remove slimer before dropping the backbox. It has a rear exit point for wires so the look is clean and I will hook up the purple to GI and green to a slimer / ghost feature.

- The Slimer is a Ikon Brand 7" at about $60 Aus Dollars + postage

- The base is available at Shapeways for under $60 USD - sorry about the price as very large diameter and shapeways charges for space in a printer.
https://www.shapeways.com/product/YSYVA6BAL/ghostbusters-slimer-base?li=search-results-1&optionId=58976506

- The led strips and double adaptor and extension leads for $10-$15 from Comet

So a cool topper for under $150.

Thanks for the plug and the thread, Jady.

In looking at the playfield by picture it looks so great, I was having trouble thinking about any Mods needed!

I will be trying a couple I can think of, they are not a Grand project, I know others do that very well.

Ill be working in some of our new flashers in the Matrix line for the flasher in the middle of the buildings and Pops,
as well as lighting for the under playfield ramp.

VUK lights as well. Just raw parts here as others will be likely creating plug and play with full directions and zip ties,
so I think this game will rock with Purple or Green in these lighting areas.

Ill also be checking for UV reaction on the playfield.....in the hopes of a brilliant response, and see if any products I have can enhance the game in that way.

Damn excited...just heard delivery should be in 4 weeks on an LE!

That looks good but reckon the coin door needs a ghostbusters logo and some red pinstripping.

#10 1 year ago

thanks for doing this swinks. great idea.

i will definitely add more when the time comes..

#11 1 year ago

my other one still in testing are PKE custom flipper posts and bats with possible lighting, currently testing for bat failure - 200 games and going well.

I'm surprised nobody has brought up doing the siderails and maybe even coin door in a yellow and black stripe pattern, like the top of the ghost trap

image_(resized).jpeg

#13 1 year ago

what would be cool is a ghost trap topper that opens up in ghost catching mode and a image is projected out on to a surface or even better a hologram - that would be sweet.

#15 1 year ago

I have a couple ideas I would like to see. I like the Slimer swinks, I would like to see if it is possible to make it appear to float and move on top of the topper. I had an idea for a motorized unit hanging from the ceiling like a tie rack circular motor with Slimer attached to a string that could go back and forth. Or a motor could be placed on top of the topper instead of the ceiling and a clear rod could connect Slimer to the motor and it could go back and forth appearing to float. I was even thinking of trying to have it rigged to start and stop in sync with Slimer toy bash mode. I like the lightbar idea but I am not sure I would like the rotating flashers or if they would get annoying. Another cool topper that is cheap is the burnt Stay Puff piggy bank. It would look cool with some orange flickering LED's below to resemble fire. Also would like to see a LED mod for legs and shooter like Mustang Paul's that is green and works with the Spike System. I found some cheap LED's backlights for flat screen TV's on Amazon and I think they will work well for on top of the topper or even as under cabinet illumination. I want GB to light up like a Christmas tree. Green under-cabinet lighting, Green leg and shooter LED's, Green Led's illuminating upwards at ceiling from on top of topper, Green DMD, Green Led speaker lights, it will pop.

That looks pretty awesome. I wonder what it would look like with bright pink/purplish color for trim choice?

here is a cool trap to use

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/181840192867?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=107&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true

check at the 6min 30 second mark - very cool

http://opus5.complex88.com/

I saw that video, last I checked he hasn't released the 3d files for it (there are similar trap designs on thingaverse).

I started modeling a mini-trap when the leak first came out, but I'm not sure where it would fit nicely in such a packed playfield, or how it would even get actuated during the game?
sw_ghost-trap_(resized).jpg

I suppose you could replace the existing flat trap in the back of the machine, but it couldn't stick out too far (or have the doors flip open too much). You could tie it into the flashers, but not sure what you can do with a pulsing voltage?

I dunno. GAP took a similar approach with Transformers and it didn't do it any justice IMO. It just doesn't match the cabinet art. Especially the yellow/black areas.

Theres the black exposed metal with screws above Slimer.....Perhaps a small version of the trap on a base, would cover the nuts, and actually look appropriate with Slimer under it...???

Just a thought.....

on the slimer topper that added a light base to, a acrylic round bar exits the ghost trap already and then a spring attaches to that (which is hidden within slimer) so he does seem to levitate already and bobbles around if you were to nudge the game.

as for the Stay Puft the burnt one or the happy one (11" tall piggy bank) I bought the happy one for a pinsider - still need to confirm if wants it - they are both the vinyl plastic and pretty sure they will glow when lit from with inside as when you remove the head and look through the side you can see the daylight through it. For this get one of Stern's rgb light boards and patch in the rgb board to the existing one in the games stay puft so when he gets angry the different colours are represented on the topper version.

all that guys designs are here if anyone wants to make the big version as a topper ??? maybe tilted at a angle to get the effect if you automated the lid and had light and smoke effects.

as for trim I think the classic look of brushed stainless would be nice for rails and lockdown and instead of standard rails or lollipop rails design a set to follow the middle of the flow of the ghost stream for the Pro

Thanks for starting the thread swinks. My "LED Leg Light-Ups" (look for my topic) would look great on GB. My green Light-Ups would look fantastic on the Slimer LE, along with beatmasters Shooter Housing Light Up. So check out my topic and see pictures of them in action on some games.

cool please post a link here - thats the idea for everyone to at least post a link here back to another thread.

#27 1 year ago

Here's a list of what I'm making so far (none of which is for sale without Stern approval)

- Slimer shooter
- Stay Puft shooter - happy
- Stay Puft shooter - burned / angry
- Logo shooter
- Terror Dogs
- Ghost trap with translucent ghots in mid trap, LED lit

I was thinking about covering the Slimer arm/bracket with a mix of yellow/orange/blue/purple EL wire and making it look like a proton stream is throwing Slimer about in relation to ball hits.

Awesome to see so many people love my glow in the dark armour idea if Steve @ pinball refinery can pull it off I can't wait too see a set in person.

A trap is definitely needed somewhere it seems to be the only thing that's not really represented front and centre in the game.

Here are some cool speaker panel designs I came up with for the new Ghostbusters pinball. They are cut from thick black acrylic and look great when backlit with leds. These and other upcoming GB mods can be seen at http://www.modfatherpinball.com

I'd like to see a multi-layer acrylic topper based on this. Makes the top of the game look like the top of the apartment building. I know there's a couple of people out there with the skills, make it happen please.
