Quoted from yzfguy:

So it will be available separately? A tail sale, so to speak?

This would be awesome! I was lucky enough to catch the thread when it was updated as available and have one on the way, but really hadn't given much thought to painting the wireform or how the snake "ends".

Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:

When I bought my Premium NIB, I also bought a plastic kit for future use. Iam not understanding what's going on here. Was there a mistake on the plastics? .

No mistake. He was asking for scans of the plastics in order to assist with making a virtual version of the table that has the correct plastics in it (my assumptions at least). I just posted stating that I had done the table and that he's free to use them once the table can be released. Your plastics should be fine

It was sold out last I saw. Didn't ever see the price..

Quoted from Butch2099:

The sale was $25, and it will be $35 for future runs. I hope they become a stocked item one of these days. I would like to put one on my machine, but I am not going to try to chase the seller down to get notified to be one of the lucky ones to get to order it. I don't need any pinball product that bad.

I don't feel that way at all.
So the item sold like hotcakes. Great for them.
Sure they could have waited until they had a huge inventory and everyone would have gotten them at the same time.
But I applaud them for having the sale and creating buzz for their mod.
I don't mind waiting or the extra $10 bucks at all.

I got mine BECAUSE Pinside is the first thing check with my morning coffee. The early bird gets the mod....or is it worm.

I would have bought it for that. I even signed up to their FB page & was supposed to get another 25% off. I guess I missed the boat?

I don't know if running out of a mod you hyped, offered a discount on, then ran out of, then raised the price on is a great start in my book.

Quoted from Butch2099:

I think you better reread what they did. They said they had X many and the price would be at a $10 discount from the reg. price of $35. Now logic would tell you, from the way people have been talking about it that it would be a HOT seller and that if you wanted one at a discount you had better act ASAP. I see nothing wrong with what they did, they wanted to be nice and offer the first batch at a discount that's all. If you had been following this thread on a daily basis you would have seen that were getting real close to releasing it. I wanted it so I came here a couple times a day to see how it was progressing and it pay'd off, others did the same.

#5062 4 years ago

I happened to luck out and catch Pinside while getting ready for work. Frankly they didn't even need to offer any discount for a new mod, bit they did. It sold them 50 units, and confirmed market viability.
This is a niche market, folks- and this was a great idea and method.

#5063 4 years ago
Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:

Anyone got the snake mod for their game from Pingraffix? I just saw it today. My only issue as it is nice except it missing it's tail, kinda just ends at the start of the wireform ramp. I do like it, wanted see what others thought, or have it installed.

I was disappointed - I saw it an hour after the email went out and it was already sold out when I tried to order one.

Other than that - I love it - think its pretty awesome - but just wish I had been quicker to see the email.

Guess I'll wait to see what they come up with at the end of the tail... Really, really great mod though!! Thumbs way up!!

I'm not sure I understand your logic here.....they had over 100+ made and ran out in the course of one day. Even large factories churning products for people run out if the product is popular enough. That's what happened here. To me selling out that quickly of this MOD at that quantity is an awesome start....maybe too good
They will make more man....don't you worry about it!!

#5065 4 years ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Correction, they only had 50 for the $10 off special.

#5066 4 years ago

I may have the only MET on the planet with no external mods, and (mostly) incandescent GI. But I do have a bitchin' blacklight Metallica poster.

[EDIT: I do have the tongue decal on my snake]

Probably. Post a pic. of the poster.

If this is true then you have a tongue decal on a turtle, not a snake

#5069 4 years ago

New premium.. Snake jaw errors.. jaw is having a hard time staying up.. most of the time it closes then opens again. Before I start taking shit apart. Anyone have a similar issue and the fix? the errors are jaw cannot open, jaw cannot close. I am not by the machine so I don't know the exact words.

Thanks!

My snake had fangs when I got him - early unit.

Post 92 & 105 Never said there was going to be a limit. Said they were 50 in stock & they were making more. If it was updated past that I must have missed it because I did not post in that thread.

My 4 year old called it a fish until I put the fangs in.

#5073 4 years ago

Don't know if snake mod is realistic enough for me. I was kind of thinking about putting one of these on top my pf glass.

I'd buy that as a topper.

#5075 4 years ago

Maybe I missed it but is there video of anyone getting to end of the line?

#5076 4 years ago
Quoted from agodfrey:

You mean with the glass on, right?

#5077 4 years ago

Been there twice but didn't record it I didn't do well enough to really see much anyway

I don't know if any video exists

#5078 4 years ago

Yes glass on. Just curious

#5079 4 years ago

He'll yeah final mods added tonight and I'm done for a while. Added a color DMD, interactive led speaker lights from refinery, and I installed a real knocker inside my cabinet. This game is awesome, now I just need to get to EOTL.

#5086 4 years ago

Trying to search- where to start when your game starts by feeding three balls?

#5087 4 years ago

Can't seem to find the fangs anywhere...any leads?

Reseat the connectors on the ball trough optos.

Now that's funny!

#5095 4 years ago

Ok, I thought it was fixed, but them realized it was only after I took two balls out of the machine that it stopped autoloading three balls. The game says six balls, but if I remove two, them game after new game it does not auto fire. Any ideas? The difference on behavior does not seem consistent with optosz as the number of balls in the machine makes an impact.

#5096 4 years ago

Well, sticker under lockbar says install 6, manual downloaded from Stern says four. Four works fine, so there is is. If anyone else happens to either look at the stocker on theirs, or know what they put in, please let me know.

#5097 4 years ago

The sticker says six?!
That was your only problem. 4 is correct

#5098 4 years ago

Mine must be the xxxtra special one!

So glad that is all it is.

Hey Rensh, where are those instruction cards from? I have Bandit's GI lighting in mine also but I might have to look into the backbox light mod also. You machine looks great. Going to make me track down a few more mods =)

Pretty sure all met models are 4 balls. So with 6 balls in there it will push balls out of trough until there are 3 at start of ball. Hence 3 balls in shooter lane.
