Being sworn to secrecy and friendship all I can say is We are all in for a Huge surprise. Didn't seem possible that Steve could do something more impressive than his Red Witch masterpiece but Trust me he Has! It will be Way Worth the wait and know he is working his fingers off to make sure it is sheer perfection before release. Just Wow is all I would call this and stay tuned for his unveil. Awesome guy, and incredible talent.!

#1109 2 years ago

OK, if Steve minds I will remove this but as a means to be his court jester and entertain his fans while they wait for his next feat of Awesomeness I thought I would introduce our newest appointment to the completion of OZ castle. You'll need to See that Monkey right?!!

There are no bugles in a castle! lol The Mod Couple is proud to introduce our newest mod upgrade for one of our Favorite games Wizard of OZ! While there are Many really Awesome castle wall upgrades available it always bothered us seeing that odd megaphone bugle lamp in the castle? So this is our spin to rid the castles of OZ of bugles and introduce our custom WOZ Castle Lantern Spot Lamp Mod! Fully plug and play and designed to work with All WOZ models! Each lamp is hand painted for a more authentic witchy castle look! Player viewable sides have red lenses and true flame image for a premium accent look. As function is just as important, the front is still open and offers the same spot light brightness as originally designed! (Can't have a monkey sneak out on you!) Kit includes fully assembled lamp assembly with plug and play harness and both a screw mount flange and provided removable adhesive mount. Also includes full color step by step instructions for simple installation. Bulb is not included as you already have the correct one in your Bugle! Plus you have the option to change spot colors for that purple Paisley Park look.?! As always we offer and sell our products when they are Done! They are now in Stock and available to ship next day. PM for purchase and any questions! WOZ Castle Lantern Spot lamp kits are $39 plus 6.95 US shipping. Thank you as Always for your interest in our product creations!!

As I know #Gouveia is getting close on his AMAZING new release we decided to improve the castle doors for what he has in store Behind them!!!! So Cool. The Mod Couple is please to announce our next WOZ castle home improvement Mod! The WOZ Custom authentic replacement door set!!! After completing our Castle lantern Mod we noticed quickly when lit how sad the castle doors now looked. You can't keep Dorothy captive with a door made of Stickers!! Plus Any thief can take out a screw and release her, duh! So we decided to finish the look of of this wonderful castle with some authentic wood grain 3D high impact doors. All Three! The door set was fine tuned to ensure play was not effected for aesthetics. Each door set is Hand painted and grained for a unique and Custom look fitting of the witches castle! The old door screw hardware is Hidden for a cleaner look! Also note, the Right monkey door has added length screws for a soon to be released #Gouveia (maker of the awesome red smoke witch mod) next release which will work perfectly with our door design! Castle Door set includes full color instructions, set of (3) doors, and all mounting hardware. Order a set and finish the room off right! Custom door set begins shipping Monday and we are accepting orders now. Kit is $42 plus $7.25 US shipping. Send a PM for inquiry or purchase at this time. Save Dorothy from Ugly sticker doors!!!

But enjoy the snow, mofos is pretty good too. Hahaha.

I tried surfing for the first time last month in Maui. NOT as easy as it looks on TV!! I think I drank half the ocean before retiring to the bar. Watch out for the sea urchins. My daughter stepped on one and lets just say the trip was not fun after that... Enjoy your R&R, you are going to be Very busy once these WOZers see your next amazing release!

I will NOT ruin his Amazing surprises but Trust that as awesome as it looks you guy/gals are going to be even More impressed by what it does and how it works. I'll say it again, I didn't think he could top the red smoke mod but this one is just darn Cool! Will be worth the wait and considering he's newly married he may have less Free time on his hands. lol When I see this post top 100 hits in a day I will Know Steve dropped a video of his amazing creation! An artist with an Amazing talent. Bravo!

The Wizard behind the Green curtain mod is an amazing idea!
( see how pinside rumors start?)

Nope you said it on the internet so it Must be true!

#1244 2 years ago

Ok just an observation that hopefully Steve is proud of in his accomplishments. He has yet to fully disclose what or when he is making let alone a price but fan's like myself are lined up with wallets out. lol That says allot about the individual, their commitment, and his craftsmanship. One little classy detail I noticed was the small artists signature on the back of my Smoke witch mod. That is an artist touch that you can be certain put as much effort into Each creation as if it was his final masterpiece. Heck, anyone that can sit in a dusty garage/laundry room staring at plastic Monkeys Must be an artist or one of the munchkins....

#1303 2 years ago

Well, as I suspected Steve dropped the video. Easy to see when this thread exploded justifiably so. Way cool and yet another Amazing work of art.

Also, odd to say about a mod toy but I view Steves work as individual pieces of Art. Hand signed and you know he remembers each and every one he painted. In my view your more so buying a piece of Steve then a toy. I admire his work and more so the great guy making it.

Yes.
Brand new high quality screwdriver that tightly holds the door screws.
Hold the screwdriver at a 22 degree angle that barely engages 2 1/2 of the slots in the screw.
Press the screwdriver onto the screw with way more force than seems necessary. Push hard, try to bend the post...lol
The screw will crack loose.
Put new screws in afterwards.
I using hardened black ones.
If it strips out.
This is the tool to use.
No scratching, no slipping.

Its all in good fun. Lol

Pinball can be fun.... Odd thought. Agreed, its all in fun and honestly is a deserving praise to Steve for his love of creation. All out of respect and something I am sure he is proud of. No matter what list or where on the list you end up you Know it will be an amazing piece of Original work. Now where were we on the list again.....lol

#3189 9 months ago
Quoted from gouveia:

Here's a little more info on the angle. It looks like the original focal point of the ball was the centerpost between the flippers (in red). Unfortunately, to really see the images you have to move over to the right and down a bit. I changed the focus to the center of the lockdown bar. This way the images hit you straight on when you're playing the game. I'm roughly 5'9" and it looks great. But I've had friends who are 6'1" say it looks good, all the way down to my wife Tricia who is 5'6". The trick is using washers on the back post or the front. You can even raise the back post by unscrewing it a bit and get it even lower than that. So that's a pretty big spread.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Love the amazing attention to detail and improvement. Shooting rainbows at the player is over the top cool lol. Your going to make us love this game all over again. You sure your not on Jacks payroll???

Quoted from gouveia:

This might be one of my favorite new things to see. I shoot for the yellow brick road all the time, and not once did I pay attention to this screen. The ball sits a little higher in the game as well, so the images look like they're floating. I think you guys are going to love it. [quoted image]

Quoted from gouveia:

And to answer your question about safety, both Tricia and I are doing our best. My lovely wife has MS, so keeping her safe is my first priority. I generally only go to my small local UPS with a s***load of boxes at one time (much to the dismay of the poor guy who has to type all of the addresses, I'm sure), and keep my distance, wash my hands, etc.
We should all take this seriously, but not so serious that we can't have fun and keep clogging this thread with stupid chicken pictures.

At least now wearing the resin grinding mask all day has a life saving value! Glass half full!

#3528 8 months ago
Quoted from gouveia:

Hey everyone,
The Golden State of California has officially been told to stay at home--so that's what we're going to do.
I'll make one last big drop at UPS with the remaining Crystal Ball mods that I have, and then it's back to molding, sanding, painting, designing, pinball playing and anything else I can do to stay at home.

All of you above have been PM'd, and I'll be working hard to get the rest of them made.
But please remember, I’m making a toy. That's it. In the general scheme of things, it's really not that important. So for those of you who have been affected in any way by this virus, please don't feel bad or apologize if you have to drop out or postpone your purchase.
It's a toy.
And I’m not going anywhere.
Steve[quoted image]

And the same for You Steve. Take care of your wife and stay safe as your Primary Focus. There is No rush when it comes to a toy over loved ones. While little is really good about this new global event I have been blessed with extra time and love caring for my 3 year old granddaughter with CP. Having this extra time with her has given my wife and I a stronger appreciation of priorities and family. I wish you the same. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us.

#3535 8 months ago

Yes. But only if you keep it unopened.

Well That wouldn’t be any fun! Really impressed at how fast you tore through this highly detailed mod. Or your wife is making you live in the garage....lol

#3541 8 months ago
Quoted from gouveia:

I'm not bored.

So for all those stranded at home doing honey do lists you could break protocol and batch another run of crystal ball beauties. Lol. Help us Steve it’s up to you to keep us all sane!

#3543 8 months ago
Quoted from fnosm:

Installed and blown away. Really makes a huge difference.
One thing to note is my crystal ball touched the glass when I went to replace it. I do have plastic protectors installed which may be what caused this issue.
Once I remove the washers from below the mod it now just barely clears the glass. Another happy customer.[quoted image][quoted image]

Not mod related but do you have some type of Blue mod lighting? My game looks very different in color. Not bad just curious.

#3565 8 months ago

I made one, but Uncle Steve left it on the cutting room floor.

He sent out a video how to. Could post it if he wishes.

Who said witches are not loved?
His witches are like iPhones...people cannot wait to buy the next version.
You know, I have one simple request and that is to have Witches with freakin laser beams attached to their heads!

Already on the west lawn. Hey Steve, can I use the washroom please?

#3695 7 months ago
Quoted from AFM95:

Hi Guys,
Does anyone have a new crystal ball that you don't need and would sell? Unfortunately I need a new one, and JJP told me they wouldn't be able to address it at the moment until the move was complete in June (and that's at the earliest if things go well).
I really don't want to wait that long as I have Steve's crystal ball mod mocking me that I can't install it.
Thanks in advance.

If you know the diameter there are Many options on Amazon for under $20 in photography. Good luck

#3750 7 months ago
Quoted from skogen75:

Got my Crystal Ball mod last week (on my birthday! Thanks Steve). Had to wait until the weekend to install. Here’s where it gets crazy. So I got the ball off the old mount with the twist method, it was on there really good, when it finally came loose it took a chunk of the ball with it. Turns out the new mount covers it and it can’t be seen, avoided disaster there. Next, I was screwing on the screen and my screw driver rubbed on the PCB, I heard a crunch. Yep, sheered off the inductor. Searched for the manufacturer of the screen and luckily they publish their schematics. It was a 4.7 uH inductor; good news, I have those in my electronics inventory. Soldered on a new one, tested, it works, avoided disaster again. Sanded out some scuffs on the ball with some 5000 grit and polished it up using some car polish, looks perfect. Install in the pin and it looks great. Well, that’s my install story anyway.

Congrats, while it seems you had a few obstacles you completed the mission!

#3804 6 months ago
Quoted from rennervision:

Oh man. I'm afraid I've really botched this crystal ball installation. The black plastic base did not come off for me. Every piece I tried to grab with my crescent wrench just broke off until I was left with nothing more to grab onto. So I used a dremel tool to take off the rest. It left me with an ugly black spot underneath, but I thought it would still work.
[quoted image]
But then, when I placed it in the new base I realized I had a problem. I'll admit I'm a little confused about the proper placement of the ball because if I place the flat end up against the little display screen, there's a huge gap between the front of the base and the ball. (That can't be right.)
[quoted image]
Furthermore, that means the ugly black spot is on full display.
[quoted image]
The best I can do is reposition the ball so it's on the base, but then the screen is not 100% covered by the ball. Either way, the ugly black spot is still visible.
[quoted image]
I'm thinking I'm pretty much screwed.

I would have suggested adhesive remover as someone pointed out in this thread over grinding. Still looks repairable just need to take your time.

#3818 6 months ago
Quoted from gouveia:

Haha. Not specifically you. I just don’t want to give people the wrong impression who are seeing this thread for the first time. I’m not a mod “company”. I can barely make one thing at a time. I just don’t have anymore. Nada. Nada monkeys.

#4044 4 months ago

Absolutely love it and so worth the wait and lists.

A few artist questions of curiosity if your interested...

After the thousands of hours toiling over making all these beautiful mods:
1. Do you still enjoy playing WOZ? Often?
2. At this point how many times would you say you’ve watched TWOZ?
3. Does your new bride now see this as a passion or a partial obsession sickness? Lol
4. Not by revenue, which (Witch or Monkey) did you find the most enjoyable to create? As an achievement.

#4059 4 months ago
Quoted from gouveia:

Well this is a nice change of pace. Bring it on!

I still enjoy playing it because it's a great game. I love widebody pins, since Indiana Jones was the first pinball machine I bought and still own that got me into this whole pinball thing to begin with.
And I still haven't learned all the deep, DEEP rules of WOZ, so there are things that I still haven't seen.
But the glass is hardly ever on, so there's that.

I am second youngest of six kids. My dad was a commercial tuna fisherman and was gone most of the time at sea when I was younger, so my mom wrangled all of us by herself. One rule she had was that we all had very specific bedtimes, which were pretty much spaced thirty minutes apart.
So I remember when Wizard of Oz came on TV, I had to take a nap after school before watching it since my bedtime was 8:00. So I could watch the beginning, but I still ended up having to go to bed right around the time Dorothy meets the Scarecrow. Eventually, I just stopped watching it and never got around to seeing the rest of the movie.
So for years, whenever someone brought up the flying monkeys, I seriously had no f***ing idea what they were talking about. Not kidding.
About ten years ago I got to watch one of the remaining prints of it at the Eastman Kodak museum in Rochester. So I finally got to watch it all the way through.
In the last couple of years I have watched the witch and flying monkey scenes more times than I ever thought I would in a lifetime.

Best question! I would not have this thread if it weren't for Tricia. No bullshit. It would not have happened.
Tricia has MS, and she has far more important things to be concerned about besides pinball. When we met, I was working on the witch when I'd get home from work just for fun. But she encouraged me to put it out there. She gives me the space to keep creating, she helps me with lots of behind the scenes stuff, and she actually listens to me talk about pinball news that no one would give a shit about (or at least I think she's listening). hahaha.
On our honeymoon in Maui, we were in a souvenir shop when I got totally lost staring at this stupid little fish magnet with springs on it's fins. I was wondering how I could make that work for the monkey (it's on my workbench in some pictures on this thread). Tricia had no problem with that. She actually waited patiently as I kept staring at it. I eventually just bought it so I could stare at it later at home.
Plus, she agreed on this new house just so I'd have space in the garage to work and have a room to fit my pinball machines.
I mean, c'mon!!

The monkey was hands down, the hardest thing to figure out because there is absolutely no room to put a mod back there. But someone challenged me to do it, and that was all I needed to spend countless hours figuring it out. (and you helped a little. )
The enjoyment was getting it to work, the achievement was actually finishing all of them.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your inspirations. As I see you as more of an artist I suspected you had a strong foundation of family, support and inspiration that brought you down this path apparently going back many years. To create is fun, to do so with inspiration and support is priceless joy. Do thank your wife for Sharing you and your talents with us. Time is precious and your creations are much appreciated.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

Wow. You think you know your friends. Hats off to mavantix who was the only one who remembered his old pal Boob. I owe you a drink at the next pinball show after this virus has run its course. The rest of you suck and can go piss up a rope (especially yelobird who actually removed me from the list!).

Say what? Lol. I wouldn’t remove anyone even if Steve told me to do so.

Oh ya , a real LIST!
And...in Honor of Wilford Brimley. He would of wanted a real list to. RIP.

Ahhh the Listing Hour! Bring it on Steve, pull the bandaid off and let us fill your paypal lol.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

Look at the list above yours. I was at position 0 (a made up position if ever there was one, admittedly!). Then you posted your list and I was gone. Poof. Just like that. Like I didn't exist. Like I never really mattered.

Ok looking at the list I apparently did knock you off the fake list my apology really not on purpose. Please revise the fake list and swap with my position I am willing to wait for this beautiful creation.

As a sign of support to the Many rightful fans of Steves amazing work I am prepared to make as Many new control boxes as he is willing to make witches for free to support (coax) him to make more. Amazing creation as always and an Honor to support his creation.

Quoted from wesman:

Hey guys, I'm okay with switching with good ole Boob! He's Steve's #1 Fan/Cheerleader on the forum, and this also gives me time for Yelobird and myself to actually find me a game to put these two awesome mods into!

Quoted from gouveia:

Confirmed. The mod's lighting is self-contained and has nothing to do with the RGB lighting in the game, so it should work with all of the different systems.

Unless you live in Elk Grove Village! Lol JK

Quoted from beelzeboob:

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!
EDIT: Witch is sold. You snooze, you lose.

And I am offering my gen 1.0 still awesome witch like new for 1 Dollar under your listing. Lol PM for interest
