Same thing for me
Me too! Count me in...hoping for Witch and/or Monkey! I missed the first (and most artistic IMO) mods. I hope this post gets me on the list for the new.
I want one please. I was too late to the party on both the witch and monkey.
If anyone has a witch for sale, please let me know.
Sooooo happy to be a part of this club!
I needed this mod more than most of you? Why am I special you ask? Because I could never see jack in my crystal ball...even at the right angle (0.0000056° btw). It was always blurry. Well, following Steve's excellent instructions, I figured out the ball was installed wrong from the factory. The flat side which should have been parallel to the screen was the part with glue all over stuck down to the plastic base! Of course this presented a whole new problem which meant I had to remove 100% of the black plastic and glue. I then had to sand it with multiple passes of ever finer sandpaper and then Novus 3, and N2 to remove glue, gouges and scratches. I wish I had taken a before picture. It was a hot mess. I did grab one after a few sanding passes. Wasn't easy, but so worth it to do the job right.
Got her installed and I am seeing all kinds of stuff I never saw before...the Characters, the witch on CB mode and at least 2 other witch animations, yellow brick road and much, much more. Pretty much the only things I saw before were skill shot, WOZ and the swirly candy graphic. I am so stoked! I thought that was the most useless toy before. Not anymore! I now drain because I am focused on the CB.
What a work of art too. I also like the gouveia stamp and gold signature. Well done Steve.
Now about that campy witch...
Put me on the "fantasy" list too...what the hey...
Seriously, I have wanted a non cartoon witch since I got this machine last July.
Funny. On this list that will likely go away when Steve opens the official list i am number 33. It sounded familiar and I went back to check the official CB list and I was, yep, you guessed it...33. Must be destiny!
I cannot wait! I have been dying to melt (literally) the cartoon witch that came with my ECLE!
Awesome! Your videos are as good as your mods. Very clear, bright, interesting, well explained.
Your relationship with your wife is really good and funny.. Dorky is cool. Soooo excited/nervous/anxious to hopefully be one of the 50.
Congrats on a true masterpiece. The OE witch could not hold Witch 2.0's pail.
Nice. And Stunning! ^^^
I only have Crystal Ball experience, but it wasn't long after the list closed that I was notified to pay up. It came immediately thereafter even at CV19 start.
I'm betting there is not a ton of lag for early listers. I'd love to know how many hours on painting alone however..

Okay...I've been given permission to let you all know that I've beta-tested the new witch and she's absolutely phenomenal. When you see the level of detail and work put into this thing, you'll be happy you forked over $400 for it. It's an absolute masterpiece. I've told Steve that it works perfectly for me and his installation video was fantastic and easy to follow as well. I think he'll start shipping these out very soon now. For those of you lucky enough to get in on the list, be patient: this thing takes a ton of time to put together. (You'll see what I mean when you get it.) For those of you not lucky enough, I've listed my Witch 1.0 on the marketplace for one dollar less than that OTHER witch.
Bring on the munchkin huts, gouveia ! And a job VERY well done!
$1 less than the other...well played and classy!! Thanks for getting my excitement up even more than it is! I can't wait! So excellent to hear it's been *ahem, smoke tested.
Thanks for sharing.

The munchkin miniplayfield protector is the most important mod for this game.
Mine is from Cliffy (http://www.passionforpinball.com/WOZ.htm) I think he makes the best but you can find other protectors that will do the job as well.
You can see how much of a beating mine has taken in the attached pic. Notice the hammered metal look.
This. Put a Cliffy on ASAP!
Oh happy day! Can anyone recommend a good tree trimmer? This girl needs to be on display!
Quoted from Fizz:
I just got my witch installed today and it is sweet! Now it's the witching hour over here.
One tip that I'd like to mention to everyone. When you remove the cryogenic chamber and the plate underneath it, before you install the red smoke, I recommend that you change out the rubbers on the posts beneath that plate (the posts to the left and right of the switches underneath the witch).
I say this from experience. I installed the entire new witch. Everything was working great. I got all the wires zip tied and cleaned up nicely underneath. Then I put the playfield back down, and I see a rubber rolling down the playfield. And, of course, it had cracked and come off of the post directly under the witch.
So, I had to take the whole thing off again, far enough so that I could access that post to replace the rubber.
All is good now, though. Got everything put back together and the witch is great!
Awesome. Thanks for the tip! JIT too. I'm about to place a PL order. Would you know what size rubbers offhand?
