And you can order mine at my store too!

No, I'm just kidding. Looks great, both of you. I am now wanting a Wonka more and more.

Standing 4.5" tall, this wonkavator fills the empty space in the back of your standard edition wonka. It is made up of 10 separately 3d printed pieces to ensure all surfaces are of the best possible quality by eliminating jagged steps typically seen from one piece objects printed vertically. This mod is plug and play, no permanent modifications are made to your game, no soldering or drilling required. It mounts to back of the gobstopper ramp using the existing left screw, while the right screw provides mounting for an included spotlight. A motor spins the propeller on top for movie accurate realism. This mod is powered using one of the stock JJP 12v connectors that is down-converted to 5 volts. It is activated by a photosensor mounted by the "super lock" insert.

#19 1 year ago

Good stuff! I’m also watching that shooter rod with interest. Also curious to see what kind of blade art might eventually show up for this game.

#20 1 year ago

Your Wonkavator looks cool! Can you post a video of it in action? Any idea on price and availability?

#21 1 year ago

Interactive hat coordinated with the pop bumpers.

If you don’t like the factory cover, this is for you. This is still in prototype. The valve wheel turns as the ball rolls down the wireform.

Quoted from romulusx:

It will be ready in next couple of weeks. Still working on the price. May be offering the diverter cover and tube assembly separately.

#26 1 year ago

Also working on a diffuser for the big points insert. I don’t like that you can see the LEDs.

The game needs the following mods:

A boat with willy wonka at the front something that will sit over the ramps

Right under the front of the wonkavator there are two screws...create a scaffold that bolts in with two umpa lumpas working like mechanics.

Pinblade art: What is being offered isn't good. How about a chocolate river on one side with the boat? I saw one of the companies had like some fake looking factory that isn't good... the game is missing the iconic boat and chocolate river.

NO I don't like the factory at all... the one created by Mod Couple is the BOMB! However I do think your idea of the tubs is awesome!!!!

I'd love to buy the tubes independent of the factory.

Thanks. It means a lot coming from you! We like all the feedback, good, bad or indifferent.

Will these be injection molded, or is the final product just painted 3D prints? If they are 3D prints, what layer height are you using for the final product?

#42 1 year ago

Diverter cover & pipes are awesome! Got the mod couple factory on for now in mine but this is excellent in its own way, perfect!!

Whats the end cost going to be, approximate?

Ought to look really good with the LE's blue wireforms.

#47 1 year ago

Looks cool. Only thing to be careful of is not being able to see the ball on the return ramp. The spiderman building mod by Back Alley (left ramp return) is often removed by people now. They didn't like not being able to see the ball coming back.

This might be the best all around mod ever made so far, seriously. It adds a lot of character and melds so well with the theme. It looks like it should have been there from the factory!
