Quoted from Master_of_Trolls:

Were your Wizmods magnetic or a peel and stick (and, do they muffle the sound from the speakers)?

No peel to them. You just apply them directly to the speaker panel and the magnet grabs a hold. They come rolled up in a cardboard tube, so you may have to straighten them out a bit. The only manual thing you have to do is to remove the Stern identification plate before hand and then screw it back in afterwards. Also, the art covering the speaker panels have holes in them so the sound can travel thru.

Cool product. I bought a set for my Mando pin and hoping to get it this week. I went ahead and ordered (4) more sets for some of my other pins because I was impressed with the quality. The only bad thing is the shipping is free, but it can take a while to get there. It's a hit and miss. Been waiting for my last order over a month and a half now. It was shipped to Australia for some reason and I live in Indiana, so go figure.

Hope this helps.

Perhaps a good excuse for you to go to Australia to retrieve the package?

Quick… someone peek in the windows at the factory to see if these bad boys are in production!!!

It is JULY that they are supposed to start up again correct? We are nearing the end of the month lets go!

About three weeks ago, my distributor said Stern committed to him that his 20 GOTG units on order would be 'in production' starting July 19th. So my assumption is they are being made right now. We should all see updates from each of our distributors in the next 10 days...

#5508 1 year ago

Just a quick note on the HookedOnPinball ORB mod for a GOTG Pro. I have seen alot of various mods for various machines, but this one is different. This is a deep production unit. This unit is made of cast metal and designed for this specific use. It was custom built to fit and look like a factory item (actually BETTER than the factory would have done). The brackets and installation bits are included, the detail is shocking, and everything you need is right there. Can't wait to install it. A bit pricey, but when you see what you are getting, worth EVERY PENNY of their price!!! (I have no financial/vested connection to HookedOnPinball, but wanted to share their outstanding efforts with other GOTG-Pro owners none the less)

By far the best mod for this game.
One of the most well made mods I've seen for any game.
It is beautiful and so much better than the original plastic one.
Well worth the $.

Original designed to open for the prem/LE but I think there is a weight issue. Not sure because I had a Pro

Yeah. Look at yours then look at picture of the mod above on the thread

#5515 1 year ago

Hi Everyone.
Bit of a rookie here and bought my first pin about a week and a half ago - GOTG Pro.
I used to play pinballs as a kid in the 80s so reliving my childhood a bit.
I love my new GOTG! Man that Rocket shot is tight and the left drain can break your heart.

I do have a question for this group… when I get what I think is a really sweat right orbit shot with a fair bit of power, more often than not it rattles and bangs about 3/4 of the way up and then rolls back. Is this a known issue? perhaps it’s just not as sweet a shot as I think I’m hitting. It quite frustrating.

Most shots on GotG are tight! The right orbit is usually one of the most reliable on my machine, but I get rattles on a so-so shot. It's probably just not as clean a shot as you think.

Have almost all my mods. Just waiting for my topper from mezelmods to arrive. And also my pin. August can’t get here fast enough. I also need to order the scoop cliffy and translucent clear rubber from pinball life. I ordered two groot jaws also.

Your topper is going in the mail this morning. I just picked it up from the powder coater yesterday afternoon. You should see it by early in the week.

My wife bought me the topper a few weeks ago for my birthday. Absolutely love it and it's much better quality than I was anticipating. Thank you.

They do not. They also don't come with the service rails. You get the posts which sucks. You do get the updated cabinet though which I believe was a problem when it was first released. Not a lot of upgrades over time.

#5534 1 year ago

Shaker motor worth ordering for this one? Trying to get everything I need beforehand. I can see it in Jurassic park but not sure about GOTG. Any opinions ?

Still bothers me that they replaced the service rails with posts on PRO machines. I guess they can trim $5 off their cost in the bill of materials, but makes it SO much harder for owners to work on. Uggg... So now I need to spend $50 to order the 'rail upgrade' kit from Cointaker.

That’s exactly why I purchased two of them. They will eventually be out of stock and not made any longer I assume

Pinball life was out of stock. So I ordered the stern spike II shaker from Cointaker.
