I bought this pin without having seen the movie. I just watched the movie last night, and this mod is so very well integrated into the movie, it is insane. In the movie, the "Greed" book plays a significant role as a prop, so this mod is cool on a whole other level. Bravo!

I'm on the list.....

Awesome idea....

#203 3 years ago

Got it.
it's bigger than i thought it would be, and I really like that about it. The pix don't do it justice.
This is probably the fastest mod I've ever installed. Taking the glass off took longer.
It comes with tape, but I didn't need it. It slides right into place and has a nice "locked-in" feeling once there.

Here's some pix:

Can't wait the green batch to start running.

I'm really looking forward to installing this mod on my TAF.

#205 3 years ago

I got mine too. I am shopping mine and will add pics when done. Fits great and super cheap. Thanks!

#206 3 years ago

Got mine and installed !
5 minutes easy , glass off, book in , glass on. I didn't even use the adhesive, it's nice and snug.
Looks killer, such a great idea !

#207 3 years ago

Update:

Slowly catching up. Got another shipment of filament in last week and was able to crank out the green ones. Still need to clean them up and assemble them. Hopefully by the end of this week all will have gone out.

Glad to see no installation problems so far.

#208 3 years ago

Got mine! Love it. Easiest mod to install ever and looks perfect.

Hi all,
I recently got my TAFG restored and have been looking on ways to improve it.
I'm sure all TAF owners are familiar with this not-so-attractive area over the vault entrance.

Hi all,

Well, the first round of orders is over. Thanks to all those who participated! I'm especially thankful for those people who "tipped" on their order. That meant a lot to me.

Now for a difficult topic for me. I'm going to raise the price of the mod to $20 shipped. I'm doing this for a few reasons.

I underestimated the interest in these. I got so many orders initially that I had to stop taking orders for fear of falling behind. The 3D printer was running nearly all waking hours when someone was home. Unfortunately, there really isn't any time benefit when increasing the scale, as each is hand assembled. And I really didn't have an idea of what the scale of orders would be until I started taking them. In addition to building them, just managing the sheer number of requests, tracking payments and shipments took up more time than the
initial run of only 8 shipments that I did.

I underestimated the amount of time that would be consumed making them. A victim of my own success, perhaps. Now that I've done a lot of these, I have a much better idea of the time required.

Also, many people, openly and privately, acknowledged the pricing being too low. While in my mind originally I saw it as helping people get a cool mod for their game, I wasn't really being fair to myself in regards to valuing my time properly. It was apparent in the fact that I had people tipping me on payment. I don't want people to feel they need to tip because they feel like they aren't paying enough.

There are also other minor costs that I hadn't thought to include originally, so this will help offset those as well.

The good news is that, with the experience of the first round behind me, the quality is more consistent now, packaging has improved over time, and putting orders on hold allowed me to build up an inventory so that the time from order to shipment is much shorter than the previous 3 week lead time.

Looking at the price of mods, decals run around $10, 3D prints anywhere from $10 to $70, so I strongly believe that $20 shipped for a 3D model with the decal applied for you is still a good value.

If you're still interested, please PM me your choice and quantity, along with your shipping address. Thanks!

P.S. Also wanted to thank the Pinside community in general for their support. I took some of the proceeds from the first round and donated it to Pinside so we can keep having this great community!

#235 3 years ago

For MOD of the Year! Wish there was awards for this type of pinball work, you deserve it! $20 is still beyond fair, don't feel bad about price. Amazing MOD.

#236 3 years ago

Truly one of the best mods out there.
Congrats on your success and $20.00 is still more then reasonable.

#237 3 years ago

Please send me a pm with payment information and I will immediately pay for mine..

Thanks
Mike

#238 3 years ago

Hey Jenison, no pressure but... (and I may speak for the majority of us TAF owners), we're all relying on you for an awesome "Thing Entrance" mod!!!!

#239 3 years ago

PM Sent! I don't think anyone has an issue with your price. $20 shipped, are you kidding me? What pinball mod can you buy for $20 shipped?

Can't wait for the "Thing Entrance" mod....

#240 3 years ago

A bargain at twice the price. Thanks for doing this, mine looks great.

Agree we need that "Thing Entrance" mod!

#241 3 years ago

#242 3 years ago

Yeah, snapped on in seconds and is real tightly held in place.

#247 3 years ago

Update:

All orders have shipped (except for the one I received after I went to the post office).

Thanks for all your support!

#248 3 years ago

Got the book mod yesterday in the mail, took a few seconds to put in my game. This looks like it belongs in the game in the first place, and is easily removed if needed, just a well executed mod all around. Definitely worth more than the asking price, love it ! Thanks for making these Mark and sharing with the pinball community.

Ditto as above. By far the easiest to install and one of the best looking mods around. Pinsiders like this is one of the reasons I check this site everyday. Some of the best mods I have for my pins comes from here. Complete stranger to me, but to take the time to make these and sell them at a great price to other TAF owners deserves high praise.

Plus, he didn't want the money until you got his product and was happy with it. WOW!
