Got tired of the excessively bright lights coming from the 2 sides. One directly behind Eddie and the other directly behind Lilly. So I took the clock apart and discovered spacers used behind Grandpa and Herman’s light holes and the reason you don’t get the annoying bright light from the sides of the topper, when looking in that direction, from those 2 characters.
To remedy, I obtained the exact spacers Stern used behind Grandpa and Herman and installed those spacers behind Eddie and Lilly, along with longer screws and now the problem is solved and no longer annoying everyone in our home. Lol. (See photo below).
The Munsters topper otherwise works quite well and is a good edition to our Munsters stellar game. Really adds, like others have already mentioned. New code will make it even better and I think it is a must have and more appropriately priced than Star Wars for example and I think it does a whole lot more too.
For those who haven’t purchased yet, I’ve included another couple of photos showing the impressive amount of hardware in the Munsters topper. BTW, I normally dislike toppers and think they serve little purpose, except adding a few more lights and plastic characters. Which most machines already have all over them. Munsters and Black Knight toppers are the exceptions and hopefully the new norm. Go Munsters!
If you have any Meccano or Erector sets, the exact spacer needed can be found and are just like the Stern spacers already used in the topper, behind Grandpa and Herman.
