Quoted from youdontknowme:

i'm cheap. made my own UFO. i like it. but i'm warped...
also powdercoated armor and ramps and coin box lid (the color matches Ghidorah on the premium's artwork), some lit japanese planes, and some lit japanese light poles...etc. oh, ya...sized out, added touches to a couple of translites i had printed up as well.
i will say one thing. the mounting of car audio 4" speakers SUCK in this machine. the power supply is in the way. not sure how they get away with those Kenwoods in the limiteds...will have to look at the rush limited tomorrow that's in our shop. i had to remove the tweeter from the right speaker. still sounds great, though.
the speaker setup in the menu is very well done by stern.

Where did you get the apron card? Desperately need to replace that ugly insider connect one!

thanks on the powder...prismatic makes a sick green/black powdercoat, but it's tricky even for pros to apply. i figured, i'd match the "bad guys".

as for apron cards, i print my own. send an address, and the style request, and i'll whip up something. : )

i need to do one in black and white to match the translite on mine anyways. i HATE that insider connect card...

and qbert rocks. my game has a great story: i was yelled at by a mom when i purchased it from her son...lol. it came from tom tuckey years ago, so i know she might have paid up for it, at the time. but man...so much anger from her, while her son chuckled...

holy crap, you nailed the aesthetics. very "smart" sign...i love it

#1710 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

The GZ burning train mod is done and we will make these available on demand. If you want one, please reach out to me. It is interactive with the train insert...I can also offer a version where the lights are always on. The price is $199 shipped. The trains are a significant amount of labor and the GZ itself is pretty expensive. This is a collaboration with toyotaboy.

[quoted image][quoted image]

You could grab and use the Bandai 1954 vinyl figure or the SDCC Godzilla2000 figure both are super cheap and are practically identical to the one your using, give or take what size/scale your using, plus they don’t have the cannabis mashed eyes hope either of those are of use.

Thanks so much mate, very kind of you to say. What you are talking about is exactly what I strive for with these mods - building on the pinball experience while also being sensitive to the aesthetic and playability of the game. It's fantastic when you get it right - and even more fantastic when others are as enthusiastic about the end result as I am.

#1712 1 year ago

This just arrived!
Can’t wait to install later tonight!

Got my UFO mod from sleal16 today. Really looks nice and a nice price too. Now I just need my GZ Prem that I ordered on Sept 22

Thanks Sleal16

#1714 1 year ago

My Mods: 3 Buildings, Mothra, Towers, Ms Namikura x2, Jet Fighter, Jet Jaguar, Xiliens x2, Spaceship, Defense Barrier, Maser. I have not been much of a modder prior to GZLE - but I'm sure having fun with this one! Maybe Stumblor will get me on his list for Neon Sign as well. 2 Pics for detail.

I’m still waiting on mine to arrive and trying to keep track of all the mod options.
Is there a list of where to get each? Or maybe use the Key Posts feature to point to them.
Thank for help getting my shopping list in order

Made my own Extension. I don’t like blocking view of out lane with the beautiful artwork!

choose what you like. scroll the pictures at the top of the thread. this might be the most mod friendly game in history.

if you add every mod, your machine will look like crap and you'll spend more then the machine cost you

i have a level game, but mine feeds the godzilla multiball to the left flipper, so i had a few diverters/roof options set up...and don't need them.

i think flamin' frames are an absolute must, but everything else is by choice of the individual

Hi -
Just wanted to say a big thank you to this Godzilla MOD group and for all the wealth of information you have shared!

This is the first game I've modded and I'm super happy how it all turned out.

A big shout out to those that have used their skills to build all these great mods and of course those that have openly shared their super creative ideas and answering all my question along the way.

Thanks again!

Playfield is looking great!!!

#1726 1 year ago

Huge thanks to everyone in this thread- was able to get some great ideas to hit the ground running updating my Pro.

Ended up going with the atomic breath Zilla and mecha from LERmods (along with flashers), and Diddys Tesla coils and bridge.

Side art is in as well, but really thinking about mirrors! I have them in my DP and WCS and they just add so much depth.

Didn’t wanna go with pinstadiums since the playfield is well lit, but going to be adding another spotlight or two from comet, just to brighten the middle PF a touch (tied into white GI)

I've been told there is now a second bridge mod for the prem/LE on the market. The original is still available:

- 25% of the cost of "limited edition" bridge mod
- original design (not just a copy of Stern's version with relief added)
- made of steel (just like a real bridge)
- ships now (not in several months)
- Made in the USA
- Sold exclusively through pinside shops so each sale supports the site.

I love the idea and look of chrome-candy's all-metal bridge, I just wish it looked more like the original suspension design. I'd be in for that!

#1730 1 year ago

A half year ago, I found this Mod for the speakers. But I don't‘ find it again now. May be someone here how knows something about this Mod ?

I actually have made one. I was worried about stocking too many versions and didn’t think it would be as popular. Anyway, ask and you will receive:

These speaker lights are awesome! Does all of this come in the one kit from Doug or do you have to order the city overlay separately?

Also you can check Yahoo Japan Auctions that's were I got mine. They were like $17 bucks for the set but shipping was the killer. Total was around $75 bucks all in.

#1747 1 year ago

Lior has made a bridge for Godzilla Premium/LE owners. I thought i'd share.

Here is his website link to purchase it.

My honest opinions on it, it looks good but I actually like the color of the original. This sticks out a bit more on the playfield as the game does have a bluish theme to it. Also you can see the crack on the bridge at rest more easily instead of the acrylic glass and that kinda bothers me a bit.

I know my opinion might be of the minority and others will like it so I wanted to share this with all of you.

One would think the expensive Lior product would have screw caps.
