Quoted from Manic:

If you are talking about changing the insert colors (actually adding color) the simple way is to just slide in some colored gels.
Not optimal but easy and the results look pretty good.

That's really what "gels" are. You can get multi-colored packs of sheets pretty cheap at hobby shops. Some colors work better than others but the ones that do work look pretty good. Nice having color in the middle of the PF instead of a wall of white.
Good luck. You'll like it!

Do you mind sharing a pic of your playfield with these gels on? I’m desperate for color! And I really don’t know anything about gels either or how they go in. Lol. I’ll search hobby lobby.

I’m pretty sure what they mean by “gels” is different coloured see through paper or what we call cellophane here in Australia, which you can get at hobby stores I think. And I’m guessing you cut it to size and place it under the inserts on the play field above the leds. I’m going to give this a go and see how it looks. Will post pics when done. Sounds a pretty easy way to change colours. Stay tuned!!

You can also try colourimg the led with a text pen. I think a friend did this on a game and it worked

But remember the inserts on twd are white not clear so whatever you do will not give you the same effect like on other games with either coloured or clear inserts

I bought a swatch of gel paper samples with hundreds of different colors about 6 years ago. I've used many different colors on different games, including defusing some GI bulbs that were too bright and shiny in my eye. With shipping, the swatch is about $15.

Been looking further into this, these “sample” gels are a fantastic idea. Going to get a hold of some and try them out. Thanks heaps for the tips.

Does anyone know where you can find a Stern Topper for TWD?

For these, do you wrap it around the bulb?

I thought they were long sold out, but it would be interesting to see if anybody chimes in with info. I wish Stern would re-run some toppers for games like TWD, GB, and KISS, for guys like me who buy topperless machines a few years after production ends. I guess I could just randomly buy new Stern toppers for machines I don't have at the time, just in case I buy a machine that needs one down the road, LOL.

hahaha i hear ya. And yes, very hard to find. I didnt think i would ever want toppers but now my opinion is changing.

No, tape it to the underside of the playfield covering the insert.

Thanks.

Just curious, if you did wrap a bulb, do you think it would hold up due to heat? Just curious. Ive been looking at these gels for a while now.

For inserts, cover the underside of the insert. For blinding GI, you simply shield the bulb any way you want. You can wrap it around the bulb and tape it if that works for you. I would usually bend the gel paper into an L shape and put a nearby screw through it. Each area would be done a little differently.

I'd love to get an LE backglass. Is that possible?

Quoted from e4mafia:

Has anyone else tried changing out some of the GI on the backboard? I've got a mix of mostly red with a single warm white, and I think it looks pretty cool - what do you think?

The fact that there's no GI back there on the right side, due to the fishtank, makes what you do on the left more dominant, and somewhat overpowering if all color, in my opinion. I'm working up an idea to mod the fishtank to give it some light, and hopefully a flickering random effect when you hit the right ramp. I've got the design for the flicker done, but not yet finished on the switchover from solid to flickering when you hit the ramp. I'll post more as I make progress, and eventually either make a bunch to sell, or post instructions to make your own.

Have you seen the fishtank mod? https://mezelmods.com/collections/walking-dead-pinball-mods/products/illuminated-fish-tank-walking-dead-pro

Anything is possible. The question is how much?
$5- no way. $500,000- no problem.
