You know you have a great mod when right after you install it, you can't imagine your pin without it. The Element 13 Rocket mod was a great addition to my TZ, I just wish I had got it sooner. This is not a cheap pencil sharpener but, a solid feeling piece of art. It’s now right up there with my Robby as favorite mods for my TZ.

Very cool looking. I always wanted a toy right in that spot since it just looks kinda bare over there. If I still had my TZ I'd be all over it. Thanks for sharing!

Bigdaddy,
Was considering adding that one on mine but I was concerned it blocked the view of the upper right flipper for seeing the ball well? Do you find that to be an issue at all?

Even though it is a nice piece it does obstruct view of the upper right flipper.I had a hard time making the camera shot after installing it and ultimately sold it.

Yes his mods are EXCELLENT. I have 3 of them! I love them all but, the UFO and invader are my favorite.
Rocket, UFO / invader and the dead end street lamp are all his.

Added a spot behind clock with a violet led in it.
Those are cool white retros in the slings.

I personally haven't had an issue with it blocking the flipper. I think its going to depend somewhat on your playfield view relative to your on height. I'm 6' and its not a problem, someone a little shorter may have an issue.

CG, I would love to add the UFO but, the price is a bit steep on that one for me, at least at this point. I remember stretching to get the Robby but, I had to have him. Who knows, I plan on keeping this pin long term so, I may pony up for it someday.

I love the rocket mod and I agree, it adds a lot to that side of the game. Here's a shot of mine.
I bought it on eBay from a seller in Spain. I don't see them anymore on eBay though.

The 3D molded smoke trail behind the rocket has an LED underneath that flashes on every shot.

Pretty sweet.
