hello i finish to build my tz gum ball hopper after 6 years i dream about it. so now its 95% finish!
i want to sell it but i dont know the price yet (150-400$). the gum ball come out from the door (from the hole for the bill acceptor or from the coin eject)
i want to write patent for this and also want to make 50 pcs. i need to know if some one want this or Interested on it.
i have 4 kit for any coin door and for any game.
you can install it on any machine you want and when you win the extra ball or match you get a gum ball
in the tz its work when you get gum ball in the machine or when you get power ball multi ball. you can adjust it and choose when the gum ball comes out. also you can turn it off with switch ot remote control.
the kit is very easy to install and dosent need drilling hole.
What do you guys think?

and i am very soory about my poor english hahahah
thank you!

I think it sounds really neat. Depends on price though, at $400 it better dispense twenties not gumballs.

#3 5 years ago

Let me make sure I understand you correctly. When the gumball machine in the game dispenses a ball, your device dispenses a gumball out the coin return? That's a wickedly cool mod!

#4 5 years ago

I'm not sure I'd put anything in my mouth that comes out of a pinball machine coin return.

That said, very creative. Good work!

the simpale kit is for 200$. 400$ its for 2500 gum ball hahah and with very special board

#8 5 years ago

Can it work with the larger sized gumballs?

#9 5 years ago

Well this would definitely get my kids more interested in playing!! Pretty cool idea!

#10 5 years ago

For $200, I think you have a very marketable piece. I would be very interested.

With a little luck, maybe it be reversible?

What I miss most in selling my safecracker rolling across the glass.
Would this fit with a modded speaker panel to send across the glass?

#20 5 years ago

Ok, come on guys. It’s a neat thing, but where do you drawn the line at mods…? $150-$400 to make a gumball come out of your TZ coin slot? Wow…

I bought a gumball dispenser like the one in the game, like many did, for their gameroom. Guess what? After 2-3 you quickly realize why only 5 year olds eat those crappy things, and they quickly become unused. Glad I was only $10 deep…

I feel a little shitty about raining on the ops parade here, but this is insane. The ingenuity and creativity is impressive, and I’m sure a median of that range is indicative of the cost, but seriously, hundreds for a gumball to drop from the coin slot…?

its from the coin return or from the special tray.
without dust and all of this. this is very clean!
you can put inside a capsule with prizes also and i can make any hopper you want (also coin or ticket)
the price is because i am working on this allot of time. And all the products are in high quality.
this is a Automatic hopper. and with electronic board. (its not only gum ball from the coin door. its not so simpale like you think...)
its not like the gumball dispanser. this is part of the game this is why its cool. you need to play on the tz to know this....
thank you

#22 5 years ago

Say what you will, but that is straight up cool. Great work Lior!

#23 5 years ago

Hmmmm Just thinking about this, if I was an operator, I think I'd hook up a few of these to my machines to get the kids playing more. Like Lior said, you can have it dispense capsules with toys in them or super balls or w/e. Not just gum.

#24 5 years ago

I have had a TZ for a while and know how it plays.

Don't get me wrong, if you did it on yours as something fun, I think it would be wicked cool, but for people to spend that much from something like this... Obviously no play value, and the novelty value (as in with moving/lit toppers) isn't very visible either.

Good luck with it, interested to see how many want one.

#25 5 years ago

I love it! I'm in at 150.00

i have more then 15 people want this....
and you have on the market stupid mods or toppers for 300$-700$
Say what you will but a lot of people love it!

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of stupid toppers, no argument there. There are a lot of great mods, and crap mods. At least with yours there is a lot of mech and coolness with the design - it's not just some toy for the theme stuck in the back corner of the PF for $75.

My point is only that it results (and what you can see) in a gumball or whatever coming out of the coin slot. Maybe it's just me, I just don't see the value, but hey, for those with a gumball and TZ habit, this is porno for pyros

#30 5 years ago

Lior is a "Master of illusion"! I'm sure he'll make many of these disappear.

LOL

How many kids do you see throwing dollars in those terrible toy crane machines only to lose time and time again? IMO, they're the biggest gimmick ever made, yet they are big earners.

I really think that if you put them in home machines, the kids would want to play pinball even more. Out in the wild, I think kids would beg parents to play even more to try and win a prize. It could bring in some decent dollars for an operator.

Think about it, for a prize that costs all of 10-20 cents, you could make it attainable with hitting a certain score. My daughter would go nuts wanting to play for little SpongeBob or Sophia the First toys. You could even put themed toys with certain machines like WOZ or the superhero or animal based games.

I think it's a cool idea that has some great electronics and mechanicals in it.

#32 5 years ago

I'm not really into mods, but this is pretty dope. Twilight Zone generally seems to be the most heavily modified pinball machines that I can think of and this has got to be one of the coolest ones for it. It really looks professionally done.

As a side note I really do wish more game were interactive with the players as this mod... Similar to whirlwinds fan that blows on you or safe cracker that has a token roll down.

I'm surprised Stern or JJP don't implement more physical interactive stuff with the games, I know it's a gimmick hopefully in the future. Another video game that comes to mind is "The Iritatting Maze", game buzzes, blows a shot of air in your face.

#33 5 years ago

Just a thought . Since your making out of acrylic you should tie a led into it to flash when you when a prize . Wouldn't be that hard to do .

This is pretty cool, especially the prize capsule.

#39 5 years ago

I dont look at this as a typical mod, this is a mod that will make you play to win something. Highscores alone only take you so far with kids. When I was a kid it was all about the high score but kids now dont play for score on their consoles most of the time and kids also love games that give prizes or tickets to get prizes. I think its genius. Good job!

thank you thank you thank you!!!!

yes it cool on this machine

#41 5 years ago

I agree. Makes Extra Ball or Free Game mean something in a pinballish way.

#42 5 years ago

Hahaha that's really cool.

OK I personally would never spend that much money on making gumballs come out of a TZ door, but if people out there want to buy them, then that's great, so good luck to liorillusion!

I've recently seen some of his other mods that he does and his work is very very clever! Great stuff and I look forward to seeing more of his work

#43 5 years ago

Try a different color lexan then clear? I wouldn't buy one but great job making your idea a reality.

liorillusion - you should make a thread with all your inventions. I saw your Darth Vader topper mod in the gameroom page, that is insane!!! What else have you done?

thank you very very much! i am working on site now and if you have facebook you can see my work
lior rajwan.
i am working now on more crazy and special mods and topper.
and i have a lot of mods in my list

#47 5 years ago

Well, I think its very cool. And I can see why the Op needs to get his price. If it's $200 I would be in, but I can't see spending a penny more. That's real high for what it is, and I'm not saying it shouldn't cost more, I just don't think the average person will pay more and $200 is really pushing it imo. No matter the work and cost of materials, perceived value is all something will sell for. The important thing is that you had a dream and you made it happen. Whether it sells or not is likely not nearly as important. I can see this adding some value later when yiu go to sell your TZ assuming these are a limited run.
