What are the "must-have" mods for WOZ?
I have a WOZ ecLE with the emerald city mod, witch smoke mod, back alley walls mod, decals, ramp mod, cliffys, leg protectors, and the lighted drop target mod. I definitely want to get the flying monkey too...but what else?

Lighted tree eyes?
WOZ figures?
Any great apron cards?

Quoted from mountaingamer:

Brightbuttons are cool, but the diy is pretty easy also, lighted balloon, and check out the Winkie mod-mod video
[quoted image]

I forgot to mention, but i also already have the winkie mod, but i havent installed it yet. I keep hearing they break easily. Do you know if that is true...or is it just a certain "run" of them?

#7991 5 months ago
Quoted from bobukcat:

The early ones from Modfather or whoever first made them (I can't remember) were notorious for breaking quickly, mine did. The ones that Indy is selling have held up very well, over two years in mine so far.

Im not familiar with indy. Where could i find the Indy one?

#7996 5 months ago
Quoted from wtatumjr:

Use Indy. I've broken 2 of the others

Do you have any pics of them?

I only ask because i have one that came with the pin deal, but i dobt know if it is one of the easily breakable ones or not.

Quoted from Pinkitten:

I really like the Haunted Forest LED strip that Mezel Mods offers. It adds considerable light to the very dark forest area, and turns it purple. I can see a lot more of the artwork there now, and the left orbit shot through the pops isn't quite so blind. Blades for the inner cab sides are awesome on this pin. I like Tilt Graphics. We added a little plastic bridge over the left sling, and some wooden-looking fence posts along the shooter lane. Looks nice!

Pics or it didn't happen!

#8007 5 months ago

I have put on a few mods (sparkling emerald city, decals, witch and red smoke mod, black out edger for the wizard led) and still have a few more to add (back alley walls, plastic protectors, winkie drop target mod) pics below:

It seems like people enjoy game blades and pinstadium lighting the most, so I will look into those as well.
What game blades are the best looking??

Quoted from DCFAN:

Get a cliffy protector for the edge of your munchkin playfield ASAP. In your picture the denting is very apparent and will start chipping.

Are you talking about this area pictured?

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Yes! The crystal ball can live![quoted image]

What is that?

#8024 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

ELCEs are pretty rare, I've seen them easily hit $9000 but depending on the buyer could be more for pristine. If it has the 7.5v boards then maybe take a bit off. RR's go for around $8k depending on use. I'd say there is a range up and down for both models of $1k or so.

What is the ELCE?

#8027 5 months ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

emerald city limited edition wizard of oz.
Some of us waited years to get one.

I got my acronyms confuused. There seem to be a lot of different woz pins.

Standard, ECLE, YBR, RR...and i heard there are "green" editions. Any others?

#8035 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

That's correct. The green edition is special and only sold by Automated, I believe.

2 questions:

1) how do i know if i have 2.0 boards? Sorry, im a newb as far as woz goes.

2) what mods do you have on your woz?

#8055 5 months ago
Quoted from delt31:

So the ecle is in the house and it's probably the nicest Pinball machine I've ever seen. As a previous RR owner, this really takes it over the top with the green and wood apron. I'm also a sucker for the topper. The wizard and the fire really had an impact on me when I watched this as a kid... Loved that part.
Although I still don't think it's an amazing shooter, it has enough variety in there and the sounds, music, voices and video clips really are the best jjp has done period. The lighting in this game is pure magic. It's amazing how jjp pulled this game off game 1. Their ability to tell a story and make you feel like you are part of the oz world is crazy. World under glass for sure and it has me shaking my head even more thinking about how Wonka turned out and what it could have been if jjp was still OG JJP.... But then again they might not be in business if they kept that up!
I also never saw the direct print cab in person before buying this version. Wow. Simply wow. It really is a shame they don't do direct print anymore. Gorgeous. This game must have blown people's minds in 2013.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I firmly believe that the ECLE is by far the best looking woz. Of course, I like my mods on pinballs too...and there are sone great mods for it. Are you planning on doing any modifications?

#8087 5 months ago

I took out the boring Free Play card and put in a custom one. I think it looks much better.

Quoted from Utesichiban:

But $11,500 worth of “sweet looking machine”? Is taking the monkey out an upgrade or downgrade? Sounds like a downgrade to me. How do they justify that Price?

YBR is incredibly nice, but I firmly believe the ECLE is the very best version of woz.

#8326 4 months ago

Is anyone attempting a mod to improve or replace the munchkin huts?

#8431 4 months ago
Quoted from Rager170:

Has anyone ever purchased any mods from WOZMODS.com?
I saw this decal package and it seems like a good deal. Just want to make sure the quality is there...
ebay.com link » Complete Wizard Of Oz Pinball Target Decal Set For Woz Standard Le Or 75th Mod

I purchased from them and have had no problems. Go for it!

#8443 4 months ago
Quoted from homegameroom:

Mine has done that a couple of times too. Check the rubber strip at the edge where the ball drops into the trough - i angled mine towards staying in the trough rather than level and hoping it stays in there.

Quoted from Pinballomatic:

It's all usually monkey home microswitch related - if he stops one thread or more too late (travels too far up the hill) the ball hits the round ball guide and spins back off the castle playfield and down. If he stops one or more threads too soon (less common), the ball doesn't make it all the way up to the drop "pocket" and falls down. Adjust the home microswitch accordingly just a tad until he drops it where he is supposed to drop it.

Great advice, gents. Thank you.

After two years or so of having the game I finally melted the witch, sheesh.[quoted image]

Anyone have suggestion for fixing pf chipped paint? Do i need primer? What brand of paint? Clearcoat or just wax?

#8523 4 months ago
Quoted from Rager170:

Excellent! Any way to read about what was changed?

I would also like to see a list. Of course, my woz is so awesome...I honestly can't imagine what could be added.

#8588 3 months ago
Quoted from TonyScoots:

Add me to the group! Wow amazing the things JJP put into this machine

It is an amazing machine...one of the best ever made. Enjoy!

#8661 3 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

You might have to wait a little bit, but it shouldn't be long. Call Frank at JJP tomorrow 732-364-9900 ext 1222 and ask. He can tell you how to get on a list.

Awesome. Thank you!

#8802 3 months ago
Quoted from Pinkitten:

I’ve noticed that too, but during multiball I believe. I can hear a repetitive sound like a clicking, or something firing that I can’t identify. It stops after a few seconds. I’ve never figured it out.

I've never noticed, but I will listen for it next time.

#8823 89 days ago
Quoted from hawkmoon77:

I don't have that mod, but in the past, I've used black nail polish (and other similar things) to paint the sides or bottoms of LEDs to make them more directional.

Left over from your goth days?

Has anyone made munchkin house mods yet? I keep hearing they are coming, but I haven't seen them.

First impression is chocolate cupcakes.

Is gouveia the only one making a monkey mod?
Any leads on another maker or place to get them?

#9402 22 days ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Gouveia is the Only monkey mod you should Want! Great things take time. Trust me its worth it and my guess is he will be making another run soon enough. Personally feel its More then worth the wait.

His is certainly great, but I'm not sure if I will ever get one at this point. I am willing to seek out all avenues.

If anyone has a lead on a monkey mod, please let me know.

#9410 20 days ago

I have the which, but I definitely want the monkey...not enough to pay that much though.

#9451 15 days ago
Quoted from apinballwiz:

Hey guys,
I have a brand new unopened monkey mod that I'm thinking about letting go - I really don't mind the stock one as much as i thought I did. Please PM me if interested and/or with offer. Thanks!

Quoted from darkryder:

Who sells the cute little shoes with socks that go in front of the spinning house?
[quoted image]

They are in the house and pop out. Do you need a replacement?

#9459 15 days ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

The door opens to expose crushed legs and shoes. Go to tests, its in there, house test?

I tested it a few months ago.
Here is a thread that might help:


#9461 15 days ago
Quoted from darkryder:

Lol, I’m a schmuck...I never knew those legs popped out during spinning house modes. I ran the house test and sure enough, they pop out! I need to play this game more, thanks guys[quoted image]

Lol. That's ok. If you ask how to take the PF glass out, however, we will start heckling you.

#9481 10 days ago
Quoted from BENETNATH:

I finally got a nice woz in my collection
I fixed the monkey by tightening the screws on the black plastic thing that seems not so robust.
The machine is a pro, done on June 18th 2014
What are the things I need to look at? I red that some had issues with undersized power supply or fuse?
Is there any tutorial to remove the buzzing noise produced by backbox speakers?
Anyway, I'm in love with it!!

Show it off with some pics!

Quoted from HEAD_boss_HOG:

just got WOZ ECLE. this game rocks. I really enjoy it. happy to join the club.
whats most awesome is, this is the FIRST pinball game my kids really are attracted to. it seems like the soundtrack and lights really make them excited to play. finally, a pin my kids will play with me for hours. They will always remember playing WOZ.
so very impressed with the build quality and feel of the game. jjp really builds sturdy pins; Very sturdy. i have a Wonka as well, and i am thrilled with that.
what is amazing is that WOZ is actually a 2012 machine. it seems like it was released yesterday. while the callouts get pretty repetitive, the game still has MUCHO staying power in my home collection. this game is not going anywhere.

Nice pick up. The ECLE is the best version.

Any pics??

You gotta show it off!
