Duff beer mod is a must have...
Lighted Moes Sign if you can find them (no longer made)
Wide assortment of Characters available for adding
Powdercoated rails and lockbar
Where did you find those front legs? I added Otto figure, changed a few flasher cover colors.
I added only the characters that actually say something during game play...No Marge, no Lisa, etc.
@brettbutler, does the pinball hit those hanging keychains during play? And where did you get them?
Quoted from retired_user_101:
Here's some photos i took a few weeks ago at Moe's Tavern in universal on opening day.
Interesting tid-bit (future trivia item)... The Fox execs walked through after Day 1 (opening) and saw the statue's clear glass mug with beer in it. On the next day, the clear mug had been painted solid white to represent a coffee mug instead. See the difference in the pix here?
Thanks for this tidbit of info. Very interesting. i meant to say something when you originally posted it but got sidetracked. i enjoy things like this.
not sure if hanging keychains are a good idea, I can see one coming off and scratching the playfield, especially if you smash a ball into it.
I became inspired to modify my Pinball Party a few years ago when I discovered some photos online of a Krusty figure in tuxedo with martini glass positioned expertly on the right side of machine. I began scouring Ebay for the proper Krusty figure, and did research to find the martini glass...(mob figure) and I was so happy with the results I added Willie and a Mr. Burns. I also added the two aliens, with twin spotlights for a topper. (minor drilling). Also added Moe on phone in corner, and added spotlight to illuminate him. Mr. Burns has a few stacks of money (included with figure) firmly attached to plastic with screws. All figures added were a factory match for other figures used by manufacturer--Sterns. (I used my table-saw with fine-blade to professionally shorten Mr. Burns and Willie to the proper height.) Willie looks good over by the monorail drop---because he always comments when ball takes the train. (ya silk-wearin' butter-cup!) Bonus---Willie's rake hovers perfectly just beneath the glass!

i picked them up at the houston arcade/pinball even this weekend.
they have tops for the other 3 flippers too, but i didn't get them.
i took this pic of all these different shooter mods, but if you look on the right there's the edge of the rack with all this custom flipper tops. on the top-right, you can see some of the other 3 TSPP flipper tops (hamburger+fries, duff beer can, and don't remember the last one).
i think there's a lady with a website that makes these by hand. ran across it a year ago.
ps. check out the cool shooter mods. there were even more than shown here.

Hey! Those Flipper Toppers and all those Shooter rods are made by my Wife! She has them on her Etsy store https://www.etsy.com/shop/PinballShooters if they are out, just shoot me a note and she will relist them. Also available at Rob Anthony's table at most major shows, that is where that pic is from!
