    Wow those both look like shit, notice in the post he doesn't get on the forums much, with all these butchered mods I wish he came on the forums even less.

    Without a doubt the worst modder and I use that term very loosely (stick and led in any cheap piece of crap or $1 toy) with the shitest mods in the hobby.

    #553 2 years ago

    Well his work is improving (didn’t see wierd wires or somewhat melted looking shapes)... but doesn’t know the proper orientation for video. I’m guessing the guy is a kid so pretty cool seeing kids so into pinball.

    #554 2 years ago

    You guys are merciless in here. Is there something wrong with me, however, that I actually get a chuckle out of much of it?

    #555 2 years ago

    STARLICH

    #557 2 years ago
    Quoted from altan:

    It has been removed so I don't get to see what caused the "oh my"

    Imagine if you will.... a glowing marquee adorning the entrance to one of your ramps.... now imagine that same marquee slowing spinning ala PepBoys.

    Honestly I’ve seen worse but I think he got called out on those which is why he removed them.

    #558 2 years ago

    Recently picked up an Indiana Jones. Decided to give it a really nice clean-up. I stripped down the top of the playfield 100% and cleaned/waxed it. Sent all the "mods" to their proper resting place in the landfill. Rebuilt both flippers. All new play field plastics. Replaced all star posts. Found a bi-plane to replace the missing one. New ruins, replaced all lights and flashers with new color matched LED’s. Orange Titan rubbers. Target Decals. New plastic ramp and decal. “Lost” plastic back board. PDI glass. Here are before pics:

    This stuff was sitting on top as a "topper"

    Good work. If you can't change a star post but can add cheap shit garbage "mods" please don't own a pinball machine.

    I'm really hating on mods lately.

    Thx, yeah me too on the mod hating. I mean I get a tasteful mod here and there, thats cool. But all the cheap little trinkets people glue all over the place, ugh!

    #561 2 years ago

    You could open up a toy store with all that shit.

    #562 2 years ago

    Hey, I generally agree with you guys, but allow me to retort with this..

    Huh? The new drop targets instead of standup targets are ugly?

    Oh I was referring to the ACDC rules the rock uni sign.

    Doesn't it have one too many planes now?

    Adding a Crystal Skull to a Williams Indiana Jones is an abomination. He should have just traded his for a Stern Indy.

    I do like the extremely lifelike Iron Sheik figurine he added though. It's the little touches that make the difference.

    Quoted from AlexSMendes:

    No, it's supposed to have both planes

    Which is factory.

    #570 2 years ago
    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    Which is factory.

    Yep

    This is also the gamne that has the "dancing band." Easily the most horrid thing from the factory on any machine ever.

    YES that's counting the troll from RCT!!!

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Lol, yes. I don't even think a modder would try to invent that as a mod.

    You underestimate Lighted Pinball Mods. He would have found a way to stick an LED in a troll and somehow melt him a little bit to make him look like the Toxic Avenger before putting him the game.

    #573 2 years ago
    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    No, it's supposed to have both planes

    Well, another example of a factory toy that doesn't seem right...

    How... How does this have anything to do with Stargate?!?! Sure, there's a sarcophagus... but there isn't a single mummy, not even in the movie. Like, this is what Stargate would look like if you were trying to replace all the existing art with clip-art.

    Quoted from bflagg:

    That's just awful.

    Lighted Pinball Mods for the win! He truly is in a league of his own.

    Quoted from LesManley:

    Might as well rename this thread, latest shitty mod from Light Pinball Mods, that thing is handcrafted? Looks like about $1 in quality.

    Would be great if Pinside added a counter on mod pages so you could see how many mods have sold as well as in stock, I would love to know if anyone is buying his stuff.

    #579 1 year ago

    Yikes, these are bad too, that Sparky.....I yi yi

    #580 1 year ago

    Yeah I saw that ad the other day. $750 for a bizarre Predator crossdresser? I mean, it's wearing fishnet stockings.

    #581 1 year ago

    In stargate, there is a sarcophagus, but only in a few later episodes and is used for keeping the gods rejuvenated/alive

    #582 1 year ago

    Some mods are awesome and look like they always belonged in the game. Some mods are like the ones in this thread. Ewwww.

    #583 1 year ago

    How oh how did I miss this glorious thread until now? Finally a club I feel welcome in!

    I would like to also draw attention to alternate backglass translights. I have never, ever seen one that is even remotely better than the original art. Please stop.

    #584 1 year ago

    I'm looking to purchase an Aurich Start Trek Translite and speaker panel if anyone has one they want to sell. Preferably the full kit. Thanks!

    Quoted from tamoore:

    Like for example, the red witch smoke and better looking witch for WOZ.....looks fantastic!

    #586 1 year ago

    Ha! I was digging around looking for a picture of the red smoke/witch mod for WOZ that is amazing, better than factory! But I found this pic, which is even better. Shows how mods can be fantastic (Red Smoke/Witch Mod) and how they can go horribly wrong (WTF is that green shit on those Trumper-Bumpers?).

    I like to think the Street Fighter Alt I made was better than Puerto-Rican Chun Li.

    But yes, in general, most are pretty bad.

    #592 1 year ago

    Not only is that Congo overly sexualized for mixed company and the girl is an incredibly offensive racial stereotype, the photoshop on those little guys in the bottom corner are horrible. I mean, just how long is this guy's neck?

    Still, a very fun translite!
