Received the game yesterday! We are very excited for what we have planned. Here we go! We will have offerings from our all-star lineup. Mezelmods, Lermods, Hooked, Toyotaboy, Ulekstore, Rock, Sparky and Tilt Graphics.

First mod, replaces the smoke stack with a highly detailed chimney.

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.

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:

How much and when will they be ready?

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

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

Quoted from bluebomber:

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?

Quoted from Flipper_McGavin:

That Gobstopper ramp sign is so cool. Does the light in it sync at all with the playfield lights, or is it constantly lit? Even if it's constantly lit it probably still looks good.
Also, this pin really needs a Wonkatania mod. It would be even more awesome if the paddles and lights are operable only during Wonkatania mode, because the whole playfield goes dark during that mode but then have a light illuminating in a Wonkatania mod

The ramp lights are tied to the GI. No plans for that other mod.
