    Hi guys! We’ve got a lot of great pinball modders in our community. Some do it for a living, while some like me, just have fun making one-offs and spend their days thinking of ways they can pimp their own machines in unique ways!

    I want to hear/see from you “one-offers” which crazy cool mods you have come up with!!

    Lets make it a contest!
    I will Give one lucky Pinsider a $25 gift card from any mod site of their choosing. All you have to do is post a pic/description of your mod. It will be judged on creativity, quality, and impact of the overall pins aesthetic.

    May the greatest mod win!!!

    Oops sorry about the Matchbox

    #5 1 year ago

    So can it be a mod that makes the game play better or just to make it look cooler?

    #7 1 year ago

    #8 1 year ago

    Thanks, Looks better in person. The material costs were a bit over $100. If anyone wants the build sheet PM me.

    Jays Palantir mod would by my choice. there are a ton of great mods for LOTR but this one stands out like crazy from far away.

    #12 1 year ago

    Havent seen it

    #13 1 year ago

    I'm really far .........and I can't see it

    #14 1 year ago

    This video shows several Dr. Who mods but is mainly for the "Dalek" mod as entry!
    Video is a little shaky sorry bad camera.

    I wired a couple LEDs up to an Indy/Henry Motorcycle and incorporated it into the Castle Brunwald Mode of my IJPA. The motorcycle chase scene is one of my favorite parts of the Last Crusade Movie so I wanted to highlight it in my machine a little more. Nothing fancy -- in fact it earned my first "thumbs down" back when I first posted about it. Maybe if I wire in a smaller led headlight. . .

    Here's my Barad-dur eye/tower mod for LotR. I've had a lot of people ask me about it via pm. I'm always happy to explain what i did, but (to future inquirers) I built it in place so its not really something I'd really want to just make and sell to others

    Sorry, will try to grab a closer pic at some point, but this is the only one i can find at the moment.

    My Ghostbusters storage facility. Not my idea, but I used the Mattel prop that game with one of the toys. I cut it to size, painted, then clearcoated. Very satisfied with the results, and props to the guy who did it first!

    Most of the mods I'm happiest with started as personal projects for my own games, and only became general things because people wanted their own. That's the way to go if you can swing it, makes everything you work on a passion project.

    #21 1 year ago

    Got any pics Aurich?
    You guys have been implementing some awesome ideas!!
    Love it!

    Quoted from Dantesmark:

    Sure. Here are some of my Metallica mods, the shooter rod is a one off, the hammer turned into a limited run of 30 hand sculpts, the speaker panel decals I dunno, I did them for people with the roadcase cabinet, no idea how many are out there. The Sparky is my personal painted one.

    I think most people remember me best for my alternate Shadow package, since it was the first mod I did. Was for my personal game, but it's been pretty popular since then, I'd say a good % of Pinsider Shadows have it installed now. I also had my gun chromed, with custom wooden grips that I drilled out to install 1930 dimes into, since that's the year The Shadow character first appeared.

    This is the translite and decal package I did for my Star Trek, before Stern cracked down on infringing mods I sold these. I've since sold my game, still has it all installed as far as I know.


    #25 1 year ago

    My mod for ACDC was a character named Helen, these are shut down like Star Trek, though I think I still have a few sets in my garage.


    #26 1 year ago

    That's probably enough lol. I have some new stuff I'm working on, a long promised Metallica mod, and something else I haven't even teased yet. But I work according to my own schedule, when I feel like it, so we'll see what happens with it all.

    #27 1 year ago

    Incredible stuff... Ironic, heres my ACDC.

    Paragon, High Speed and on Party Zone went a little nutzo!

    #29 1 year ago

    Here is my custom TWD (premium) topper. I lighted it so that a fire appears to be burning behind the prison fence and when gunshots go off in the game a white flash happens at the top of the tower where Rick, Carl and Abraham are shooting.

    #30 1 year ago

    Night Moves too much to list, the highlight mod would be blue post lights behind clear lolypop targets with clear target faces that have pink and teal alternating rings. The blue post lights are tied to the inserts that chase and flash with them indicating which targets to hit.


    #31 1 year ago

    That custom walking dead topper!!!... speechless!
    Nice job!

    #32 1 year ago

    Star trek pro asteroids. Who dunnit taxi and Totan fireball and genie repaint.

    Ive done a few one offs. And also copied some great mod ideas and added them on a few games ive personally owned.

    Sorry for the old crappy pics.

    I made this eq topper for my Refinery Met Pro out of a car rear window eq, it lights up to the sounds of the game. I made the Cobra head out of a night light for my Mustang Pro, it's wired into one of the pop bumpers so it lights up. I like it if others don't. I modified the Shift plastic so it is lit all the time. A fellow Pinsider made this cool frosted plastic shooter handle for my BF, I took it apart and ran an rgb strip inside it so it lights up, static or color fading. I used custon clear plastic nuts and bolts to put it back together so they light up too. Also for my BF I took the Bat Plane off and brought it to a sign shop where they laser cut a matching plastic with channels cut into it. I then put 2 red led strips in the channels and put it under the Bat Plane. Then there's this little guy I had custom made for the LE apron I bought and had pc'd to match the armor. He has flashers under that wired to a flasher. Then I bought the chrome saucers for my RFM and glued a red led strip inside so the ships have a nice red glow under them. You all know about my Leg Light and Pincup Light Ups that I sell, they started out as mods just for my machines.

    Great job! That looks awesome! I want to create The Wall and Castle Black in that area, but there is so little room to work on the backboard. You did a very good job to put that much detail in a small space.

    #39 1 year ago

    How did u make the castles? 3d print or store bought and painted?
    Really cool!

    #40 1 year ago

    Aarrgghh, I hate pushing my stuff outside my own threads, but... you asked

    A little thing I like to call Total Lightshow,
    ..and drop target hookup kit
    ..oh, and the DMD apron, hehe..

    All installed here on an AC/DC Pro VE

    #41 1 year ago

    Soooo want these in my ac/dc!!

    Searched in eBay for "castle -fisher (price) -playmobil -wood" and then looked at the results. Found one which matches the color of the Iron Throne. Was a castle made of plastic. I divided it in several pieces and mounted them.

    I had this vision to make an outrageous topper that would simulate the lighting effects at a rock concert. I bought a couple inexpensive mini moving heads from china and linked them together. The hardest part was figuring out how to trigger the movements with a jackpot flasher signal. Admittedly over the top, but really adds to the concert vibe.

    Literally "over the top".

    Great theme! Almost as good as Gymkata!

    I built a ball launcher for The Shadow out of a Cabot 1911. It has a real 1911 trigger in it, you can cock the hammer and when it drops it shoots the ball.

    I got plenty at Pinball-Mods.com... but I think my favorite has to be the STNG popcaps:
    STNG Popcaps
    because they turned out so nice. With the highly polished gold and sliver areas. What surprises me the most is how poorly they have sold. So either my tastes are off... or people just don't mod older machines that often.
