    Just released:

    100% better looking than the CE topper, but I'm still not sure I want one.

    Animated waterfall effect also... wonder how that looks...

    #3 6 months ago

    What did you expect for $12,500?

    #4 6 months ago

    I like the topper! They needed to represent the choc river.

    #5 6 months ago

    Wow, that still looks cheap and uninspired. Aside from the POTC CE topper, they are certainly consistent.

    Quoted from f3honda4me:

    This one is better than both in my opinion.

    I agree.

    Some folks are never happy. They cried that they wanted the wonkatania topper, JJP releases it as a limited run, and people are still not happy.
    Welcome to pinside i guess.....

    choc river smokes both. I love tilt (JP is a great topper) but that wonka topper makes me nauseous to look at.

    You all care too much about toppers ... lol

    #11 6 months ago

    On another note new Wonka code 1.32 came out
    ..

    #12 6 months ago

    I look at it as mox nix.

    First, I don't own the game yet and second, I'm not into toppers and with my low basement ceiling my RR Woz topper doesn't fit anyway.

    Awesome news about the new code though.

    Why wouldn’t they post a video of it in action?

    #14 6 months ago

    You click the blue "waterfall" text to see ta video of the lights. The only small change i hope they can do is increase the speed of transition, to make the lights flow more like water. Other than that minor thing, this is an attractive topper.

    #15 6 months ago

    Best topper for Wonka yet, but let me say this. This topper should have been included with every LE purchased to begin with. My woz rr included one, my Hobbit did not. At 9500+ every game should include the designed topper in the purchase. Same for every stern LE purchased. I also can understand the CE owners complaints on this one. Just my opinion.

    Will have to see it in person but seems pricey for what it is.

    This apparently is the waterfall effect...I was hoping it would be like the waterfall effect on the White Water topper.

    It's just ok and waterfall effect isnt really that good. No reason the ce people sld b upset as both are equally not very good . I don't get the appeal of toppers anyhow as they are just something decorative for when your not playing

    #18 6 months ago

    I ordered one for my WWLE, generally don’t bother with topper’s, but I kinda like this one

    #19 6 months ago

    I want to see it in action, white water is probably my favorite cause of the waterfall effect

    Its absolutely nothing like wh20 topper... just 3 rows of blinking lights that go from top to bottom . No effect like wh20

    JJP is on it. Ordered mine yesterday and it shipped today. Looking forward to it!

    Anyone see the latest topper? Looks like it adds a little bit of lighting to the waterfall, but I don't think dimming was included. Thoughts? Doesn't look like much of an improvement.

    I prefer the art of the latest topper over the CE topper, but the waterfall effect isn't great and actually detracts from it IMHO.
