Hey everyone,
I was thinking about building this mod for a while. The game is so awesome, but the witch tube and witch just never impressed me. I thought it was too Halloween-looking, and didn't really fit in with the movie. So after WAY too many hours of molding clay, I came up with this idea. I really love it, and it works well with the lighting and animation. Hope you like it.

Hey guys,
Thanks so much for all the great feedback. I've never sold one of my mods, but I really liked the way this came out and would be happy to make more. I just wanted to see if others were interested. Steve

#23 4 years ago

I chose red on purpose to make it look like the movie. Plus, it's being lit by the existing red and white LED's below it, so any other color wouldn't work. I'll post another video soon to give a better idea of how it looks in the machine.

#25 4 years ago

I like the witch that silly old elf made. I think it's very cool and definitely an improvement. I just wanted to see more of the witch's body instead of just her head. I also wanted her scale to match the size of the trees more. From the players perspective, it looks like she's appearing from out of the forest. At least to me, anyway. Haha.

#27 4 years ago

Here's a video to give you a better idea of how it looks in the game.

#30 4 years ago
Quoted from dotEXE:

Looks fantastic! Would definitely buy one if you made more. Is it 100% standalone or does it rely on a lighting mod as well to get the nice colors? Not 100% sure how that area is lit, sorry.

I'll definitely make more. I have to look into the cost but I'll let everyone know asap. And it uses the existing LED's, so it's really easy to install and won't damage a thing.

Some people have asked me, so here's some more details about the mod.


#39 4 years ago

Quoted from Pinzap:I don't even own a WOZ and I'd buy one. Super impressed with your artistic talent... awesome mod!!

Thank you. I really appreciate that.

But you should own a WOZ. It's a cool game.

#42 4 years ago
Quoted from Pinzap:

There's a reason I'm following this thread.
My collection is small compared to many on this site. Only 2 so far and a third on order (TH) that will hopefully deliver before the end of the year. With 3, I'm just about out of room... and my wife told me that if I buy any more she's leaving. If you're anything like me, you're probably thinking at this point -- just how much room will that free up in the basement when she takes her stuff with her?!?

Haha. I've got four. Three in storage.
Guess which one is in the garage?

#47 4 years ago
Quoted from agodfrey:

Excellent full solution!!

Thank you, agodfrey. I think so too! hahaha. And I thought about this A LOT!

Glad you like it.

#48 4 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

WAIT......Can I order the Witch and the Red Smoke??

You can. But there aren't any yet.

I love the fact that people think it's cool, so I'll make it for anyone who wants to buy it. I finally have some time to work on duplicating them, so I'm figuring out time and cost at the moment. But I'll get the ball rolling soon.

#50 4 years ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Pretty freakin cool.


#51 4 years ago
Quoted from Jvspin:

Looks Great! Please add me to the list.

Will do.

#53 4 years ago
Quoted from Chambo:

And me - this is such an improvement.
No issues so far?

None. And I've been playing it a lot.

#71 4 years ago
Quoted from dotEXE:

The list is rapidly growing!
Have you figured out any details about producing more? Or when you might be able to send them out assuming you're making more?
Not trying to rush you of course, just excited for news
Edit: Watched the update video on the previous page and... wow, are these completely hand-made?

I'm gonna start making more this week. I'm waiting on plastic and I have to make a better mold of the witch to replicate her. Glad you're excited about them.

Yes. They are hand-made.


#74 4 years ago
Quoted from Gomer1969:

I am also interested.
Is there any possibility of the ball getting lodge on top of the witch while in the down position?

If that ever happened, I molded the smoke in a way that the ball will roll off of her hat when she comes up. I think having her up and getting a ball stuck below her is possible, but once again I haven't seen it happen yet. I am trying to cover all the bases, though, to make sure it's reliable. I'll keep you posted.


#80 4 years ago
Quoted from DeeGor:

I really like the look of the well mod. Would you consider just selling the witch? If so, put me down for one.


#81 4 years ago
Quoted from thewool:

Just to clarify, are you making the red cloud and the witch as a combined mod? If so that's really cool.

I'll be making both pieces. If people just want the witch, that's totally cool. She'll fit in the tube and probably the well mod (I'm assuming. Haven't tried that yet.) But the smoke won't fit with any other witch, so those will be sold together.


#86 4 years ago

Today I went down to Coin-Op Game Room in San Diego to make sure it works on other WOZ machines. It does, so that's good. Same installation, screws, etc. It took me 10 minutes.

Just wanted to make sure that part was covered before I start making more.

#95 4 years ago

Hey man!

I love your new witch. Really fantastic work. (It seems like we're all trying to fix that original ugly one. haha.) Right now it only works with mine, because I molded the smoke really close to her dimensions.


#101 4 years ago
Quoted from TxJay:

Thanks for the video. The mod looks really great!!
One small request though...for the love of god please stop recording in vertical mode.....just record in Horizontal (landscape) mode!!

I agree, wholeheartedly. I usually do but it was a last minute decision to film it.

On that note, you know what else would be great? You learning how to spell the word "would".

#103 4 years ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Wonderful idea and even better execution on your WOZ witch red smoke mod. I'll bet orders roll in for many years.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

#104 4 years ago

Hi guys,

Just wanted to post an update. I've started a list of everyone who has PM'd me, as well as those of you who posted on the thread who want my mod. Right now, I have over 70 orders for the mod which means I will be spending a lot of time in my garage. But I'm happy people like it so much and I'm looking forward to getting them out to all of you.

The cost for both pieces together will be $200.00 + shipping. I'll set up a Paypal account to make it easy for everyone, and will post another update when you can place your order. I've received all supplies necessary and the (pin)ball is rolling. I will start molding the original forms this week, cleaning them up, painting, etc.

I've been spending the last few days troubleshooting the mod to make sure it's as foolproof as I can design it. I changed the form of the smoke slightly to protect her even more from the ball, but honestly, you'd have to do a Shaq free-throw to get it in there. I haven't had issues with it at all, but making so many more required me to be a little more analytical toward the design. I'll be posting my progress in the days to come. Thanks everyone!


#106 4 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Thanks Steve!
$200 is a very fair price. No complaints.
You should already have me from thread list, I didn't pm you.

Got it, Eric. Thank you!

#110 4 years ago

Production has officially begun. (What have I gotten myself into?--haha)

They're really looking great, though. I added a bit more detail to the smoke, and have gotten pretty proficient at making the same thing over and over...and over.

I think you guys will be very happy.

#114 4 years ago
Quoted from Toucanf16:

How do I place my order?

I've just started molding the pieces, but when I have enough to confidently proceed, I''l set up my PayPal account and we can go from there.

Glad you like it.


#116 4 years ago

Thank you everyone for all of the nice comments. I really appreciate them.

Here's the progress report. I've made 40 smoke pieces so far, and I'm really happy with the way they're turning out. Unfortunately, I've been having trouble getting a good witch mold to work with. But I made a new one this morning, so hopefully this will be the one. Once I'm happy with that, I'll get the witch molded as well. In terms of timeline, I'm anticipating another week or so before I can think about shipping them out. So for those of you hoping you'll have these before Christmas, I would say that's a really good possibility. Thanks again for your interest.

#125 4 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

GREAT looking mod.

Thank you!

#128 4 years ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

Just to clarify you are including a new witch with this correct?
Any thought of trying this with "sillyoldelf" new witch to see if it would work with your ring of smoke?

Yes. Both pieces for 200.00. I love his witch but I don't have one to try out. I can assume it won't work, though, because the original witch won't fit in the space. I've configured it to be very specific to the witch I created.


#130 4 years ago
Quoted from JeremyON:

Dude! Just awesome. Can I get one?

Dude! (You're speaking my language. )

Thank you! Of course you can. I'll be posting more info regarding that soon.


#132 4 years ago

I am making progress, everyone. Slowly but surely...

#134 4 years ago

So...I hit a minor snag. The new witch mold wasn't making me happy, so I made another one. Unfortunately, now is not the time in San Diego to work with silicone rubber, because it takes FOREVER to cure with the current weather. FOREVER.

Good news is I now have the time to work on these things diligently to make sure I send out a mod that you'll like and that I'm proud of selling to you.

So now we play the waiting game...

Quoted from Pinzap:

Another first I've encountered thanks to joining Pinside... someone that wasn't happy with San Diego weather.

Touché, Minnesota.

#140 4 years ago

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

We are in full production. (By that, I mean, I am in the garage a lot.) The molds are working great, but it's taking me a bit longer than expected. But I'm getting there.

Witches are coming...


witches (resized).jpg

#144 4 years ago

Getting there. It's very time consuming, but I'm really happy with the way they're turning out.

#147 4 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

I probably missed does the smoke attach to the base?

You didn't miss it. I forgot to explain that in the video. I use clear double stick tape (the real, heavy duty stuff used to attach GoPro's and things like that). It doesn't budge, and doesn't damage the machine. I'll attach some to the base when I send it out.



#149 4 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Excellent.....looking forward to this " finishing touch" to a beautiful machine...looks like it was meant to be there all along!!!

Thank you! I really appreciate it.

I think the machine is beautiful too, and so I took a lot of time to make the mod look like it belongs. I'm glad you agree.


#151 4 years ago
Quoted from PinBackpacker:

Can you please add me to the list?

Yup. Will do. Glad you like it.


#153 4 years ago
Quoted from pinwillie:

If I'm not too late, may I get on the list ?
pm sent about a week ago
They look great!!

Thank you! You're not too late, but I got you already. I'm keeping track of everyone who PM's me or writes on the forum, and when I'm confident that I can proceed, I'll let everyone know how to pay and we'll go from there. It just takes a LOT of time, so I don't want people wondering and waiting for me to deliver. I'm trying to get a head start, and with Christmas around the corner, I'm feeling a bit like this...haha.

Quoted from KevinG:

Just got my Witch mod today and it looks SOOO much better. Install was super easy and it looks fantastic! Great job!

Glad you like it, Kevin. I had a great time and it was nice to meet you.


#164 3 years ago

Hey guys,
Just to avoid confusion, I was invited to the OC Pinball League yesterday by Chris Enright of ColorDMD. He's less than an hour away from my house, so it was a great opportunity for me to get some feedback on the mod from some other players before I start shipping these things out. I've really only focused on seeing it in my machine, and it was helpful for me to see it on a different WOZ, explain how it's installed, etc. Chris was on the list, KevinG was there and was also on the list, I had a few in my Kevin got lucky. Haha.

That being said, I'm going to sell these in order of requests. I've got 24 right now and will be finishing another 12 this week. If you posted early on that you liked it or thought it was "awesome", then thank you. You encouraged me to make more. But if you didn't actually say you'd like to buy one, just PM me to confirm and I'll add you to the list. I will keep making them for anyone who wants one here on Pinside. I enjoy the process, but they do take time, so I can't get to everyone right away.

Thanks again for your interest and the kind words.


#167 3 years ago

Seasons Greetings, my pinball friends!

I'm now caught up and feel like I've got a handle on this, so let's get these ladies out of my garage! Here's my list for the first 20. If you're not on it, don't worry. I'll be delivering more soon. If you'd like to know exactly where you are on the list, PM me and I'll get back to you.

If you're on this list, please PM me for payment and shipping details and we'll go from there. Thanks! Steve

You guys are AWESOME! I'm really glad you're happy with them. Thank you for all the great comments and pics. I've been PM'ing people lately when their mod is ready, so I've been a little MIA on the forum. I've also been enjoying Christmas, so I haven't really been in the garage much, but I promise there's more coming. And please let me know if there's a problem with any of them. Thanks again!


#194 3 years ago

Got mine and this is without question the best mod of 2016........This one and the Dracula mod for BSD! Steve that witch is beautiful! Thank you!

#205 3 years ago
Quoted from thedarkknight77:

Since I installed this mod, I find myself going after the Witch hurry ups more often now. It is truly amazing the effect it has had on my play! I never even noticed the old witch, now the witch is the focus of the game......Which she always should have been.
Steve!!! We need you to redesign Smaug!! You got this buddy!

Ha! I'd need to own a Hobbit! I actually was in on one until they redesigned the ball-eating Smaug, then I dropped. Haven't even seen one in person.

I'm really glad you like the mod. Thanks!

#207 3 years ago
Quoted from fnosm:

Got mine 2 days ago. It took a bit to adjust everything so the broom didn't rub on the ribbon wire to the left side LED. I love the way the smoke looks when the light is flashing and the witch is the best I've seen. Love this mod!

This has been a problem for a few people so I fixed it. I was trying to cram as much witch as possible into that space, but I've discovered that everyone's machine is slightly different. (And you don't really see that part anyway).

I'm really relying on all of your input to improve this if I can, so I appreciate the comments.

Thanks John!


#211 3 years ago
Quoted from Packerjeff:

I have 6 machines and this is by far the best mod I've ever purchased. This really changes the game. The game is designed around the witch and Steves mod really brings the game to life. Steve was super responsive to questions and has designed a work of art. By the way I think "super" anything is the word for 2016. I can't believe how much I here this haha. Gopackgo, Jeff

Thanks, Jeff! That's "super" nice of you to say!

For now, the list is open-ended, so I'm still taking names. But this is a very time-consuming labor of love, and a VERY small operation (i.e., me and my girlfriend). That's one of the reasons I'm not taking anyone's money until they're ready. That being said, I'm working as fast as I can, but it will take some time for you to get one if you just signed up.

Thanks for your patience.

#212 3 years ago

It is a VERY small operation.

#222 3 years ago

Hey everybody,

First of all, thank you so much for your interest in my witch mod. There's been a lot of great feedback that encourages me to keep making more, even though it's a pretty tedious job.

At this point, I've learned that all of your WOZ's are slightly different, and I've had to do a little tweaking to make sure it works in all of your machines (i.e, trimming the bottom of the broomstick). Unfortunately, I've also realized that it wouldn't hurt to have the mod sit higher to avoid getting a ball stuck inside--because I've now finally seen it happen in my machine.

Coincidentally, I was working on a new idea for someone right about the same time, and realized that this new idea is the perfect solution. It's an inch-high piece of wall plastic that sits between the smoke and the metal plate. I originally built it for someone who asked if I could incorporate the castle walls into the design more. The longer I keep looking at it in my machine now, the more I realize that the mod needs it. I absolutely love the way it looks, and I think you will too (especially if you have the BackAlley Castle walls-I modeled it to match those).

I'm going to include it in all future mods going out, and I'm also going to be sending it out (along with some spacers and screws) free of charge to all of you who already bought the mod (the only work you'll have to do is drill new holes in the back of the witch so she sits higher. I'll send out instructions or a video when the time comes--it's pretty easy). And those of you who haven't received the mod yet will now be getting all three pieces for $200.00. I like it that much!

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to stop adding names to the list for now, so I can focus on all of you who wanted one up to this point. So if you've asked for one on the wall or PM'd before today, you're all good. But I won't be taking any more orders until I can get all of my previous buyers this new piece, and then move forward from there. I want this mod to look and work great, and I know you do too.

So hang tight. I'm taking two big steps backwards to do this, but it should only take a few weeks. I think you'll appreciate it in the long run.

Thanks again!


New Wall Witch Mod (resized).jpg

#225 3 years ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

Mine is working great but I'll add the upgrade. I like the look of the new piece!

A couple of people have had it get stuck, so I think it's just a matter of time. And unfortunately, the game has no way of knowing if a ball gets up there, especially if the witch is up. It wouldn't break anything, it would just get stuck when she goes back down, and you'd have to go into Witch Test to get it out. I think another inch of height will really make it close to impossible to get it in there.

#236 3 years ago

Hahaha. I had a feeling the trees might be a topic, but I truly can't take credit for them.

Petco. The aquarium department. There's only one fake plant I could find that looks like small apple tree leaves. Find it, take it apart, and go to town with hot glue. The glue eventually snaps off of the trees if you need to remove them. Totally safe thing to do.

pinball trees (resized).jpg

#239 3 years ago
Quoted from FlippyD:

The way people repackage a 1$ LED and a few wires then sell it as a $40 mod you could probably do the same with the apple trees. Buy a bunch of it, cut it up, package it, boom profit!

Hahaha. I just couldn't.

#241 3 years ago
Quoted from Jakers:

The wall spacer looks great! I look forward to receiving mine. My red smoke mod was just delivered a couple days ago and I was going to install it tonight but I guess since this wall piece will be on its way soon I'll wait to install the red smo......oh who am I kidding, I'm still going to install the mod tonight and will add the wall portion when it gets here. haha
thank you so much for your hard work and amazing mod!

Yeah, the wall is coming. But go ahead and install it. The odds of the ball getting stuck are pretty slim. I'm just making it better.


#243 3 years ago

Hmmm...maybe I SHOULD make a leaf mod...

I don't remember. It could've even been PetSmart. I do remember looking a lot in Hobby Lobby, Michaels, wherever, because the moment i got the game I thought the trees were boring, and putting leaves on them seemed like a no-brainer. Then one day, I found this particular fake plant glued in a little lava rock on a shelf in a pet store for 6 bucks and it kinda looked like small apple tree leaves.

It's out there FlippyD, I know it. It's your quest to find it.

#248 3 years ago

Oh my...

#249 3 years ago

Walls. No trees.

#259 3 years ago
Quoted from Sijcolo:

Do you have a video with the updated base? Does it still illuminate like the original? The new base looks great. I can't wait to install mine.

I'll try to post a small video today. It actually lights up better. The white light hits her at a better angle, and the red smoke has a more diffused, fuller light with the new distance. Happy accident.

#260 3 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Steve- You and your MOD are amazing. Thank you for follow up to improve the well. I look forward to getting the update.

Thanks, Eric. You'll be getting one soon.

#261 3 years ago

Here's a short video of how it looks now.


#262 3 years ago

Just to reiterate, the list is closed.

I want to make sure all of you who have been waiting get the mod as soon as you can, so I can't take any new orders right now. The walls will be going out this week to everyone who already bought the mod, and I'll be repackaging the few I'm holding onto and getting those shipped with the wall included. It's taken less time than I thought and I'm really happy with the final product. So thanks for waiting.

#270 3 years ago

I'm currently waiting on more hardware, everyone. So those of you still waiting for a wall, that's why there's a delay. I got about half of them out before I ran out of spacers, and I had to order those. In the meantime, I'm working on about 35 new witches. So there will be a lot more going out hopefully soon. Stay tuned...

#274 3 years ago

Okay. We are officially moving forward (big sigh of relief...).

Thanks for your patience everyone, but it was necessary to improve my mod before I made any more. Those of you who have the mod already have been sent a wall with hardware and instructions (it should be arriving this week for those of you in the states). The rest of you on the list, stay tuned. I'm trying to get these done as quickly as possible, but my elf and I have an awful lot of work to do.

Yeah, man! Great pic. Glad you like it.

#292 3 years ago
Quoted from bhwolf:

Was about the post the same question. Just wondering if others are adjusting the witch height or if it's unnecessary.

I think you should adjust it. She needs to rise up higher so you can see her. Also, her hat might hit the red plastic below, unless you dremel that out (which you can do, and which I'm doing now as well on the future mods). I'll PM all of you the direct link.


#296 3 years ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

Someone should post installation instructions (or a link) with pics and give some tips if you get into trouble (as I always do) especially adjusting the witch height.

It comes with instructions, but I'll be posting an installation video for the updated mod soon. Drilling and gluing won't be necessary, but it is for those of you who have the mod already. The new version is VERY easy to install. If you can work a screwdriver, you can install it.

#316 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

I was supposedly down for one before that announcement. Supposedly.
EDIT: Just checked...I asked to be added 23 days ago. He said he was halting orders 20 days ago. I should be in.

Yeah, I mean these are home made, hand crafted, pinball accoutrements ... One most observe the proper aging period to fully enjoy the molded plastique

Hope you get yours soon though!

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Boutique plastique.

#321 3 years ago

I'm working on 35 of these right now, which is pretty much my limit for keeping my sanity. But it's going to knock out a lot of you on the list, so I'm looking forward to all of you getting it. Unfortunately, I can't just bust these things out, because they take time to do well (and I'm a stickler for detail). But I'm REALLY close to finishing them.

It's just all this damn painting...

#329 3 years ago
Quoted from merccat:

I just appreciate that he's making them, even if the wait is 6months to a year to get through the backlog, my WOZ isn't going anywhere. Its probably taking every spare minute he's got and I would hate for a project of passion for the hobby to become a chore.

Oh my's not gonna be THAT long! Haha. We're talking weeks. And I do enjoy working on them. It hasn't become a chore yet.

#333 3 years ago
Quoted from sjohn26148:

I think tube was wedged and probably cracked in original tight installation fitting

Glad you like it!

My tube was cracked as well, and I got it NIB. (It's really bad now, since I've taken it in and out so many times. But then again, it just sits in the coin box now).

#334 3 years ago

Hey guys,
Here's the list for the 35 I'm working on right now. If you're on this list and changed your mind, just let me know. I'll PM everyone when the time comes in case you don't see this post. Thanks!




































#343 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Yep...I knew it. Schlockdoc screwed me...I'm off the list.

You're on the next one.

#344 3 years ago
Quoted from Half_Life:

I recently received the mod. It looks far better in person than any of the images or videos can show. The detail of the witch is amazing! The castle wall blends in well and is definitely a nice addition to the mod overall. I plan to install mine this weekend.
Fantastic job, Steve! Thank you for taking the time to do this!

Thanks for posting, Phil. Glad you like it.

#345 3 years ago

Almost done.

Great idea! $500.00 and they'll glow in the dark.

#360 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

I didn't realize I was on the second list. It was my understanding that I had just made it in time to be on the first list. I don't like to be on the second anything. It makes me feel like a loser.
Is anybody willing to sell their spot on the first list?

If it makes you feel any better, the first list is really like the third at this point, and you're on the fourth.

#369 3 years ago

After countless hours of molding, sanding, painting, and lots and lots of plastic...they are done!! 35 of these bitches! (I mean, witches.)

Those of you on the list on page seven, check your PM for details and I'll get them out to you.



35 witches, bitches! (resized).jpg

#380 3 years ago

Hey guys,
So far, I've received payment and sent out mods to:


The rest of you, I'll give it a week or so and send out another PM, but then I'll keep moving through the list. So let me know asap if you want to keep your place in line.


#397 3 years ago
Quoted from merccat:

Thanks again Steve! You did a phenomenal job! Absolutely perfect fit, a breeze to install (doesn't even require you to lift the play field) and absolutely looks exactly as if it were designed to be there from the beginning. It almost makes me tempted to bring my WOZ to PAGG just to show off your awesome mod LOL... almost (my wife would kill me).

Thanks, man! I'm flattered. I'm glad you like it. Steve

#417 3 years ago

Wow. You guys were all too distracted by the trees to notice mine.

#422 3 years ago

My whole post fell out before I took the pic. I've taken that area apart so many times, I just forgot to put it back in.

#424 3 years ago
Quoted from shlockdoc:

Any update on the next batch?

I'm in the process of making new molds that will hopefully fix a lot of things I've had to do by hand. Up until now, there's been a ton of dremeling and sanding and polishing to fix things that weren't right, especially when I decided to make her taller with the wall. Unfortunately when I discovered something that could be better on one mod, I'd have to go back and fix it on every mod by hand. That's been the biggest time suck. Having new molds with all of those changes already made will save a LOT of time. And I'm really happy with the way she looks now. So the plan is to finish the original list in the next month or so, and then open it up again to all of you who want one.

1 week later
#441 3 years ago

I haven't checked in in a while, so I figured I'd make a quick update.

The new molds are working great, and I'm really happy with them. I've made about as many pieces as I can, and now I'm waiting on more plastic that's arriving Tuesday.

Other than that, I'm really looking forward to finishing up my initial list, so I can start to tackle the new "unofficial" one.

Thanks for all the nice comments!


#444 3 years ago
Quoted from Radius118:

Good news!
Glad I am no longer at the bottom of the last list. Other people have requested to be added after me!

You are no longer at the bottom of the list.

#450 3 years ago
Quoted from eharan:

Any chance you can post the names for the next batch? I believe I am high in the list but want to be sure. Really looking forward to receiving mine!

No problem. This is the remainder of the list:


#452 3 years ago
Quoted from paynemic:

Is this the first listor the new unofficial? I should be in there somewhere if it's the new

It got kinda confusing, but this is the end of the first list before I closed it.

The second one kinda sprung up on me, and there's a lot of names on that one. I'm now confident I can make more, but right now I've gotta treat this like my milestone.

This is the last of those who signed up early and have been waiting months to get one.

#455 3 years ago
Quoted from pinwillie:

It's worth the wait
Got mine installed
Beautiful job gouveia

Thanks, man. Nice pic.

#461 3 years ago
Quoted from shimoda:

Is this the latest list? I thought I posted earlier but would like on the list.

Quoted from Squizz:

Would like to be added to the list also.
Thank you

It's not the latest list. Those names are the end of MY list that I closed weeks ago, so I didn't get buried in requests.

But that didn't work (haha), and I'm not too far behind anymore, so it's OFFICIALLY OPEN again.


I'm really happy that people like the mod so much, but please don't expect them right away. They take a lot of time, and I've got a lot to make.

But if you PM me that you want one, or just request one on the forum, I'll see it and write your name down. Feel free to PM me anytime by the way.


1 week later
#470 3 years ago

I know some of you are wondering when your mod will actually show up, so I figured I'd give a brief update.

Once again, you can PM me anytime and I'll get back to you. Not a problem at all. But just to give you a general time frame, I plan on getting to everyone who has requested one by the end of April. I'll be busy with work then and I may have to close the list, so I've doubled up on the molds, and I physically have almost all of the pieces ready. There's still a lot of sanding and painting and gluing to be done, but the parts look really good and it won't be much longer.

I'm still finishing the final mods on my original list, and that's my focus. But there's not many more of them so that won't be long. And my intention is to make every one of these look great, so I'm not going to speed through this just to sell them quickly. I think you'll appreciate it in the end.

That being said, it's not going to be YEARS!! Haha. A month or two is more like it. Hopefully weeks. That's my plan anyway.

And look! I've expanded!

#474 3 years ago

Hey everyone,
I have an extra slot open now, because beelzeboob is dead.

#476 3 years ago
Quoted from 2000_Alum:

I'd happily take the prestigious position at the bottom of the list! Count me in, I have a RRWOZ on the way!
I'll send a PM

I'll give you beelzeboob's slot. Oh, and your mod is ready.

#479 3 years ago
Quoted from paynemic:

So, I'm on the list. Buuuuut, when do we pay? In classic pinball form, is like to send you money now and then wait impatiently for the product. Is that possible?

I'll PM you when it's ready, then you'll pay me through Paypal. I'd rather not hold onto your money if I have nothing to sell you. I've seen how that can backfire on other threads, and doing it this way has worked out pretty well so far.

#481 3 years ago

Hey everyone,
Here are the names I'm currently working on to give you a better idea of where you are on the list. If I missed someone, or if you'd just like to be on the list, please send a PM to let me know. Hope this helps. Steve


#483 3 years ago
Quoted from Radius118:

WooHoo! Except for the typo I made the "official" list!
Thank you.


#487 3 years ago

I missed a few names above, so the list should be updated now. Sorry about that.

#488 3 years ago
Quoted from merccat:

Awesome list! I hope your material costs are relatively low because the amount of love and labor your putting in these is phenomenal, you deserve every penny.

Thanks, Ryan. You've been very supportive of the whole thing. It's mostly time and LOTS of plastic. But mostly time.

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

and what was the price of each?

They're $200.00 a mod.

#490 3 years ago
Quoted from TRAMD:

I think there was a typo with my name too. You spelled it wizard1 instead of TRAMD. Just get that fixed; no big deal.

Ha! Seriously, no one should really worry about the order too much. The first 16 or so have been waiting a LONG time. But the rest of you are going to be handled pretty quickly (relatively speaking). I already have most of the pieces molded.

#501 3 years ago

Dear beelzeboob,
How am I going to enjoy my life without you once you get your mod?

#505 3 years ago

If I added up all of the steps taken to make these, I guess I'm currently working on step #21 out of #27(ish). And that's just the witch.

Just a few more details to go, and every mod on the original list will be done and ready to ship. Thanks for your patience!


witches magnified 2 (resized).jpg

#509 3 years ago
Quoted from No_Skill:

Would a 3D printer help to speed up production of the witch? You could even print her in black to save a step.
Just food for thought. Kudos to you on a terrific looking mod!

Thank you!

Yeah, I actually looked into 3D printing it, but after realizing the cost of digitally re-creating her, and having a company make the parts at a quality I like, I decided that it doesn't really save that much time or money for the amount I'm making. Molding the parts doesn't take that much time. It's the painting, sanding, washing, detailing, etc. that takes a few hours (especially the witch). And I can mold her in black if I want to, but painting her black is easier.

And honestly, I've made something I'm really proud of, and for a $7-8000 machine, I figured I'd make a piece of artwork that people want to put in there, as opposed to a computer molded piece of plastic.

#510 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

You shush! Those of us who care about quality are willing to wait for it.
Keep on doing what you're doing and don't go all "Made in China" on us.
Now...who wants to buy my spot for $300?


And don't sell your spot yet, beelzeboob. Because all of these are going out this week.

#513 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

That's how Matt does it at Back Alley. It's painstaking work, but that's why his work looks so good...and demands top dollar. Your work will fit in perfectly with his.

Yeah. It shows. And that's another reason why I wanted to do it this way. I wanted it to look like it "fits" with everything else.

#517 3 years ago
Quoted from Silverbak:

I'm missing from the list yet requested in post #456. Can I be put on the list please

No problem. Yeah, I missed a few people. Sorry about that.

#518 3 years ago

I've got all of the mods from the original list made, and almost all of them have been shipped. So I'm on schedule and they're really looking great. I'm looking to have the rest of your mods done by end of April.


#526 3 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

The lighting for the witch is not part of the mod. The mod just happens to use the factory lighting fairly well.
To add additional colors of light would have been difficult and likely required an additional circuit controller tied into the game.

Thanks for the response. I didn't even know where to begin with that one. Haha.

#527 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

My wife has informed me that fat stores water. So I should still be good for weeks.
Wise ass.

I thought you died on page 10.

#528 3 years ago

And you should only have a few more days to go without food.

If you're not dead, that is.

#531 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Got the mod today. Installed it in under 15 minutes. Fired it up. Here's my two-word review:
Holy shit.
This mod is a transformative one on the level of the ramp lights on Tron. The fit and finish are spectacular...and it smells great, too!
I love that you have no idea the witch is there (unlike before). When you're playing, it's tucked in a dark corner. You don't even realize what it is until it fires up.
This mod is absolute genius. I bow down humbly before you, Steve, and can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Hahaha! It DOES smell good! Hahaha.

Thanks, man. Very cool. Really happy you like it. Now go eat something.

#534 3 years ago


Quoted from pinballinreno:I installed mine yesterday......Ummm, what beelzeboob said above^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
There really are no words to describe how perfect this is for the game, The original designers can learn from you.
Thank you so much Steve!

Thanks, man! Appreciate it.


#544 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Hey, witch does a little quick wiggle when she's coming's a quick side to side motion so it's not entirely smooth up and down. Are the guide holes too big? Or do you know what would cause that? No big deal, it's just not what I'm used to. Just wondering if anybody else has seen this.

The cutouts behind her aren't really meant to be guides. They should be clearing the two black posts. Most of the guiding is done by the black square of plastic with the two holes underneath her. I would make sure that that runs smooth without the witch on it at first. Then I would attach the witch and adjust the screws on her back to make sure she's straight, and the screws below her on the bracket to make sure she clears everything. That bracket moves back and forth a bit if you loosen it. It may just need to come forward a bit.

#548 3 years ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

My witch rubs her hat a tiny bit on the front edge of the red smoke.
It doesnt affect function at all. it just might wear the paint off in time.
Do I bend the shaft or what is the best adjustment for this?

You may just have to bend the shaft back a bit. The most important part of the whole mechanism is the long screw post going into the motor, so don't bend that. My WOZ was NIB so the everything was pretty straight. But now that people are starting to buy them used, things can get pretty bent. So between adjusting the screws, and bending the shaft, it should fit in there. Otherwise, if you do need to touch it up, I'm using Craftsmart flat black paint from Michaels. Cheap and easy to find.

She's a Beauty. One in a million girls or should I say witch. No more TUBES for me.

#553 3 years ago
Quoted from merccat:

My wife decided that she would like to include her WOZ in the games I take to PAGG.... Since it has your mod installed you may get a flood of new requests as people see your work in person

Thanks, man! That's awesome.


#556 3 years ago

I sent out a mod without enough glue between the wall and smoke and it separated. Not a big deal, but still a hassle. Hopefully, that won't happen to anyone else.

BUUUUTT...if it does, this is what I use to glue them together. It works great! (when you use enough). My bad.

Quoted from herg:

I would like one as well. I haven't seen a list or info on how to buy, but I'll take another look when I get a chance.
Edit: I went back and read the whole thread. Lists, open, closed, etc. I feel your pain. Just know that if you're still making them when you get to my name, I want one.

There's no pain. The list is open and I'll put you on it.

They just take time for me to make them, so don't expect it right away. I'm trying to make a lot this month though, because I get pretty busy with work in a few weeks.

#572 3 years ago
Quoted from thunder001:

Please add me to the list. I would like one also.

Will do.


#591 3 years ago

First of all,
Thank you everyone for the nice comments. It's really cool to see my little creation get so many positive reviews. I'm putting a lot of time and love into these things, so it's great to see that you all like it as much as I do.

You don't have to pay me until I message you and let you know it's done. I'll send you a really easy PayPal link, and then after you pay I'll send it off to you. I've had a few people who didn't respond for whatever reason, but after a week or so I just move on. Not a big deal. It's $200.00 a mod (just to save you time from searching through the thread).

Here's who I'm working on now so you have an idea of where you stand in the list. Once again, if I missed you just let me know and I'll fix it.


Finally, here's a progress update. They all kinda look like this right now.

Quoted from hawkmoon77:

Because of this, the up-light adds great shadows and contrast to her face. Sort of like shining a flashlight up at your chin while telling scary stories by the campfire.

Ha! Thanks for the nice review. Yes, that light is very Bela Lugosi-ish now that she sits higher up. A bit of a happy accident.

And nice trees.

#606 3 years ago
Quoted from hawkmoon77:

Thanks. Jersey Jack kept calling it a haunted forest and it wasn't until I re-watched the movie with my kids that I recalled that it was supposed to be an apple orchard and not a haunted forest. After that I had to have apples.
For real, the only two things that bugged me visually about the game were both solved on this thread... the barren trees and the witch.

If you really want to overthink it (like me-haha), I'm pretty sure there are actually two forests in the movie--the apple trees and the haunted forest where the monkeys grab Dorothy. Even though everything in the game says it's a haunted forest, the trees in the game look like the apple trees and have apples in their I guess they're both?!

Yes. I am clearly overthinking it. haha.

Quoted from thunder001:

No rush just wondering time frame for you to have a witch done for me?

It generally takes 8 weeks from the point of asking for one. I've been playing catch-up ever since I started making them. And even though I'm getting faster at it, that seems to be the time frame right now.

Quoted from capguntrooper:

Soooooooooo, where exactly am I now on the list? Just curios

You, my friend, are in the next group of 15 that I'm working on. They're half-painted and almost ready.

#704 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

First, send me $20. I will notify Steve that you want a witch mod. Then I'll tell you. Then you send me another $20. Then I tell Steve to put you on the list. For another $20 I'll remind him that he's taking too long to do your mod. But if you want to be bumped up on the waiting list...well...I don't think you could afford it.

This is correct. You pay Beelzeboob. Lots and lots of money. And he's very good at reminding me that I'm taking too long, so you'll get your money's worth.

I actually edited the very first post on this thread with details. Its $200.00. And I apologize beforehand that it takes time, but unfortunately there's just no way to do it faster right now. I have to make each one by hand, and I've got a lot to make.

And occasionally I have to get out of the garage.

#706 3 years ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

What if you used two hands, would that speed up the process?

#711 3 years ago

Hey everyone,
My job is taking up all of my time right now. I tried to make as many of these as I could before I got busy, and I've got a bunch in the garage that I'm finishing early next week. But I've slowed down. There's just not enough hours in the day for me to make a lot of these. I'm not closing the list, but you're going to have to be a little more patient than I wanted you to be. Hope you understand, and thanks again for all the great reviews and comments. It's really rewarding to make something people like so much.

I just want to say again how amazing this mod is! I put it on both my standard and RRWOZ. It completes the games for me. It just felt "not right" before. Thanks again Steve!

Thanks, man! That's high praise. Really glad you like it.

#725 3 years ago

I'm still working on them. Slowly but surely.

These have all been mailed out, and I'm really happy with the way they look. I've got more "half-done" witches in the garage, so those will be done soon as well.
