When you were a kid a cardboard box was everything you wanted it be or it was just a cardboard box

Fridge boxes were the best

Quoted from thebosson:

Seems a bit overboard to ask an owner to go that drastic with a repair on a brand new machine. And, I don't have a dremel so that's great answer for me.

I agree, my distributor did offer to get a new metal ramp modify it and send it to me. But to me it just seems like a pretty crappy fix for the problem. But I guess the only real fix for it would be for Stern to replace the play field with one that was routed in that location like it should have been in the first place and without a ton of pressure I don't see that happening.

Maybe they should include a dremel with the ~$6k msrp of a pro and surely on the $9k LE they could throw one in the goody bag if they haven't fixed the problem on those already

Picture Please, and Thank You.

Will do,been super busy since the posting-at work non-stop since I had Presidents day off and got it all back together at midnight that night. Have about 5-8 total games on machine......need to close up that right outlane- Lol - Though the ball launch is very sweet >>

I am a mechanic by trade,enjoy fabrication and problem solving.....Much more than screwing on a few mods-right down my alley to do this sort of minor outpatient surgery.Turned out great and I was confident in what I was doing and how to execute it.

Laters-my boss is coming,gotta go.

Anyone interested in the lighted clock and the magnet protector from The Mod Couple? I'm selling both (unused and together) for $37 shipped. A $15 savings. First come first served and Pay Pal. Please PM me.

Quoted from TomDK:

In the club ... out the club.
After exactly 19 days in my gameroom the Munsters Pro will leave today ...
Nice flow and fast game, but thats it.... boring. Maybe the software updates will change something but they can not change the emty playfield.
I cought myself after a bad first ball starting a new game, getting all characters in every 3. game. Dragrace is boring and a show stopper. The jackpot there on the left is boring and a show stopper. To 90% I stopped the jackpot to get back in game. The sound is bad, too many layers at the sametime. Animations are funny .. for the first 3 times ...
Good news .. the pin will stay in my pinball league so I have chances to play it later .....

I’ll give you $500 bucks for it.

I put the rgb lit shooter rods on all my games..only available through CT to my knowledge..look great, and consistent feel...Greg( mindorbits) used to make them years ago and were the best...Plasma would look sick!!!

I only have one, it's on my CV...I didn't know you could still get them, thanks for the tip...I will check out CT.

only place that still has them. These are not Greg's (don't exist anymore), but these work great....highly addictive mod....

Does anyone know where to get those custom yellow cards in place of the money card on the right apron you get a card that matches your machine? Been trying to find where to buy them but no luck. Want one for Munsters LE and Deadpool LE.

#860 6 months ago

Many games shooter lane ramps are not counter sunk into the playfield? Met and di are examples.

Didn’t get to play it too much, but have been loving it so far. Shoots like butter right out of the box...those ramps are perfect. Franchi nailed the artwork too...it looks amazing in person. The mirrored back glass is stunning. The lower playfield is a little tricky and the response is odd because the flippers and balls are so tiny...but it’s a decent novelty and it looks like it belongs...overall I like the lower playfield (it kind of reminds me of those little toy pinball machines you’d play as a kid).
The game really caters to the backhand shots.
The ball does seem to bounce a bit sometimes, though..got it stuck up on herman’s arm once where I had to pull the glass (maybe just need to mess with the angle). I do like the sounds and show clips. The music doesn’t seem overplayed and complimented the gameplay very well. Still don’t fully understand the ruleset but I see plenty to shoot and I’m sure that will get refined in upcoming code.
So far, I’m thrilled with my purchase, and I’m looking forward to getting more flips in on it.

That's great, glad to hear that you are liking it. You can also turn the mini playfield off in the settings if you sometimes didn't want to play with it on. The game is gorgeous and i bet the mirrored backglass is stunning.

Lot of complaints as you know about the code but i have played a pro now twice and i really enjoyed it a lot. The game is so beautiful that i just enjoy looking at it as crazy as that may sound, and me loving the theme helps a lot also of course.

I think this game will do just fine in a larger collection for sure even if it does have a shallow code. I dont really get bored of games if they are fun and they shoot good so i dont think thats going to be a problem for me at all. Congrats on your new game and please keep us updated!

Oh...forgot to mention, the game looks a lot brighter than the pro with the lower playfield in there. That’s not to take away anything from the gameplay of the pro...it’s just to to address the complaints of the game being too dark

I bet that does make a big difference. I dont really find the Pro to be too dark truthfully like a lot of people say and im getting to be blind as a bat. Seems ok to me, could be better i guess but i wouldn't say its bad.

It's not new. Stern has been ripping Cliff off with these since Ghostbusters, but they are thicker than Cliffies and affect slow ball movement.

They don't affect "slow ball movement". It's a piece of metal to protect certain areas. Sorry but Cliffy doesn't own anything.

Mine arrives Monday...unless,,,,,,I can pick it up from the terminal tomorrow. Muah ha ha ha...

#888 6 months ago

Waiting for notice on my LE arrival (Ordered on reveal morning). Super excited, can't wait

On a related note, thought I'd share these with the group. My wife found some cool vintage Munster character keychains to use with the new machine.

Exciting day and happy to share first pics of Munsters LE #122.
I was also fortunate to have my BM66 Premium delivered at the same time.
Both are very fun titles.

For Munsters LE, the pin plays extremely fast and very smoothly. All shots flow seamlessly on my example with no shooter lane issues nor disruptions from the mini PF.

Theme integration is spot on- lcd clips, music, callouts and sounds are all terrific.
Colour changing led light show is perfect and the LE is not dark through the middle of the game due to the mini pf having some really nice ambient lighting.
The ramps and loops are amazing. All shots are easy to hit with little to no clunk.

The mirrored backglass is very sharp and the cabinet looks attractive overall.
In person, I don’t find the lockdown bar and rails to look quite as mismatched as they show in photos. I actually had to point it out to my family or they wouldn’t have noticed.

The lower pf is fun but does have a bit of a novelty factor to it.
However, what is neat about the mini pf is the variety of shots: 2 orbits, vuk, middle bash toy, right ramp and chance for a 2 ball multiball.
It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s better than I expected and will take some practice to master it.

The next most divisive element of this pin is gong to be the code.
There is no doubt the ruleset as it stands now is fairly shallow.
The game is also quite easy and thus good players may get to Munster Madness quite regularly.
I’m hoping that Dwight adds some polish and depth; but if the game is truly mostly coded: I’m not sure this is the ideal pin for highly skilled players nor those who have either a small game set-up or don’t absolutely love The Munster’s.

In my collection of games, I have a mix of some deeper games (like Maiden, DI and newly arrived BM66 and some on the shallower side like Deadpool, MB and TAFG).

My family and I enjoy a variety of gameplay and The Munsters will be a fun game to flip. Only time will tell if it has longer term appeal.

Pics attached below. I have to stagger my pins due to space restrictions which is why they appear different in size.

Munsters Super Skill shot will teach you bad habits that mess with your Iron Maiden play. I find myself always changing the song between balls now accidentally as I reflexively hold down the left flipper at the beginning of each ball.

Super congrats....MunstersLE and BM66 Premium in one day? Wow!!!! Doubt you'll be posting for awhile....Exciting pinball times for sure!!!

#899 6 months ago

Thanks MK6PIN, really digging both titles.
Just so fortunate to be part of this great community.

@Vireland- I have yet to play Munsters enough for it to mess with my middling Maiden skills lol. (Man, Maiden is such an awesome title in its own right).

On my DPLE I always go for the super skill shot up the Katana ramp- Munsters does feel a bit easier than that shot.

Great time to be in this hobby.

GOTG just moved into first. I will give it a month or so to see if the munsters catches up.
