Take my money............
New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
Got mine installed yesterday. As stated above, this is one of the best mods I have ever installed on any game. These should be factory, and look and fit so much better than original. I took my castle mod off and found it was already broken from ball strikes, so this mod was perfect timing.
Relax folks, this mod is definitely worth the wait, and this guy is great to deal with. for those of us that had no issue with the original purchase, he did not have to send out the wall update. It says a lot a bout a person who cares enough to make sure all of us have the additional parts at no extra cost. If he says he is working on them, you can trust he is. By far the best mod I have installed on any machine. JJP should use this as standard production
Quoted from gouveia:
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.
Thanks for taking that group picture of my Ex-Wife's family. I had forgotten how much I missed them, and how much they loved riding those brooms. Good times....not
Ok, in about 6 years when he catches up, he can add me to the monkey list as well. Lol
This is what I get for disappearing from the forums for a while. Must Have Monkey...............
Quoted from lurch:
Yeah but to be fair he did state a few posts back that he would be making more. So I dunno. Perhaps, he should post the final list then ask a mod to lock the thread.
Also, people are impatient.
There are enough on the waiting list to cover the production if pretty much everyone on the original order list backs out. I cant imagine anyone is keeping track anyway.....if there is ever a new bunch, I am sure there will be another thread.
I STILL say this was the mod of the year.....I don't care what anyone says. Any time you can come up with something like this that has people begging you to make more, says a lot about the quality of the product.
Quoted from Half_Life:
Do you see that? That's how much longer you have to wait! And it isn't long, my pretty!
I am in like the last 7 and patiently waiting. My only gripe is I should have bought 2, but I figured I would try one first before ordering one for the office pin. Oh well, one monkey is better than no monkey......lol
Quoted from Toucanf16:
I'm only one above you near the bottom! Patience!
Oh, I have patience....I wasn't whining about the delivery time....I was kicking myself for not buying two. OP can take until next year for all I care, my game is not going anywhere. Just something to look forward to at some point.
New category for this year's TWIPPY's......best Mod ever that was shafted on a prior year..........Monkey is winner, Hands Down!
Thinking about offering my own monkey mod..............hope it draws as much interest!
I am in for whatever it is. What a brilliant business model you have....we don't even know what we are buying! lol
Quoted from harryhoudini:
Thanks for being such a shining example to us all.
Good lord...copyright and/or original idea aside...how about just doing the right thing as another human being and:
1. Leave this thread alone
2. Find some other mod to make...there are thousands of possibilities out there. We all know you saw a quick buck in jumping in front of all of those folks still wanting a smoke mod. What you don't seem to understand is people are not lined up to buy the mod based on what it is, but rather the quality of what Gouveia puts out. These (and the monkeys) are individual works of art created with a lot of hard work....not simply a blob of plastic with some lights added in and made on a 3D printer. Gouveia's mods are of the few that actually seem to add value to the game....I can pretty much guarantee yours will not. Kind of like buying a fake Rolex to me............
Quoted from gouveia:
It has felt like an eternity, but your monkeys are finally ready! I will be sending out PM's to all of you this week.
Thank you everyone for your patience. 200 monkeys! You guys are awesome.
A MONKEY ARMY!
Monkey arrived today. Great quality....gonna watch the video this weekend and work on getting it installed.
Quoted from Yelobird:
In No way rubbing it for those that didn't get in on the last batch but I must say this is Flying Monkey is by far still one of my favorite creative mods. Steve, you need to quit your day job and just make Monkeys!! lol
Gotta say I agree. If this doesnt win the best mod twippy, then I question the thought process behind the selections. Completely organic from the ground up, and not 3D printed, but moulded and hand painted. Cant get more original than that.
Quoted from Dashmonster:
The list opening is going to be a challenge. By the time I cut and paste a list and add my name three others will have added their name and posted. Then I hit enter and now there are different lists? Chaos multiball
Instructions are just to post you are in. And he did say he will do more than 100 if interest is higher, so everyone should be able to make the list.
Got to see Witch 2.0......maybe time for an upgrade from witch 1.0....lol
But seriously.....the Crystal ball mod does everything claimed. I have to admit, there are a couple of graphics I can now see that I had no idea were there. Nice work!
1. The Boob
Quoted from gouveia:
This may happen to the some of you. I don't know Gatordad's details, but a couple of people have used machines where it looks like the ball fell off and the previous owner glued it back on. So there might be a lot of glue. But I found something that worked really well for me. I set the ball in the base of this piece with Super Glue remover on it overnight. It turned gummy and I was able to get pretty much all of it off. (That's the spot right in the middle with the scratch). I imagine you could use foil or something like that to create a base like this one that would work equally well.[quoted image]
No way mine was falling off in this century. I had to destroy that black plastic to get it off, and then I was able to carefully remove the glue residue. It was a chore....they must have switched to Gorilla Glue at the point when they figured out monkey glue wasn’t cutting it.
Quoted from gouveia:
Right now, I plan on making 50. If the demand is more than that, I'll consider making another list when I finish. This is a pretty complex mod, so I'm working on it with a good friend of mine here in town. And I don't want people who sign up to have to wait a year to get it.
You heard it....list goes to 50. No crying allowed when we hit 51! lol
Quoted from Rager170:
I have no clue whats real or not anymore..
None of us do
I really think the frequent customers should be given advance purchasing options....kind of like advance concert tickets for the fan club! Those that have all issued Gouveia mods have " Golden-Mod" status...................lol
Been gone all weeekend...if the list is still open, add me in. If not....life goes on
We should all throw in a dollar for a guess at when our individual package will arrive...then post a pic when you receive it. The person on the list with the closest to their guess, wins the pot. (yes, it would need to be on the honor system)
