Quoted from gorditas:

Before securing one, I signed up to be notified when toppers came in. Just got an email;

Well, thanks for posting this! - I just ordered the topper from Marco, and it appears I may have got the last one (went from in stock to out of stock after my order).

Yes... That is awesome. I missed out once again.

Just wanted to thank gorditas again for posting that Marcos had the topper. It came quickly and installed in about 10 minutes max. What a great topper!

Looks like the led that lights up Herman is out.

Agreed. Mine was like that. One of the lights inside had been wired in reverse polarity. Easy fix after you get the topper opened up.

#9058 1 year ago

Ok so I had to check it - led is fine, see pic below but I took the picture early in startup so it could of just not have come on yet, but I also found out something cool about the topper I didn't know - each character flashes when their mode is active, so its also possible I caught Herman in mid flash.

You are welcome. It really is a great topper.

#9061 1 year ago

Looks like you are missing a piece of the plastic from the botton that covers the lights it should go in the black bracket under the door.

#9062 1 year ago

Nevermind it looks like mine is on the outside of the bracket

Sold out i got the last one.I was freaking out when I saw 1 left because my credit card got hit with fraud and my new card hasn't arrived yet and my PayPal balance is less than I needed.I started messaging my pin buddies that would understand my addiction and take care of me and I found 1.

yeah but whatcha gonna do? Possibly the last one and I can either go out in the garage and do a couple hours of my hobby or skip taking the wife out for dinner this weekend to make up the difference.

#9067 1 year ago

the topper is worth it.

and this from a guy that usually just makes his own toppers to keep from having to spend money on one.

#9068 1 year ago

I would of ordered one when they first came out but I was bed ridden with 2 herniated discs and scoliosis and didn't want to deal with any topper issues so I figured I'd wait for the problems to get worked out.Since it doesn't look promising for another run I figured this may be the last chance and now I'm able to deal with any issues or repairs if needed.

Concur. Very happy with my purchase, and if I hadn't got the Marco one, I would have been right there with you.
Ya sure, its no JP $600 topper, I mean it is actually interactive with a way cool mechanical wise cracking raven and it works with the modes you have, right?

I know. When they finally go our of production.......

I still recall one guy willing to pay $700.00 for a Walking Dead topper.

But the powers of rationalization know no limits

Quoted from jfh:

Available, but now $550.

This makes Stern's prices look like an absolute bargain.

#9076 1 year ago

Added a couple of mods to the ‘ole Munsters Pro tonight.

Couldn’t find a shooter rod I liked until I came across this one from Super Skill Shot Shooters. Love that it’s Grandpa’s medallion that he always wears.

Also added the Spot light from LerMods. If you don’t have tiny hands you better use a pair of tweezers to get the light in there, but it looks great when you do.

#9077 1 year ago

I saw pinball life had the topper and inquired. 1 left at the original price so I ordered it and it’s on the way. Now they updated it to the new price. Stern must have raised it.

#9078 1 year ago

I got my topper and it appears to work 100%. The clock spins and stops,the door opens and closes level(it doesn't close 100% but looking at the mechs it appears to be designed to have a little bit of gap), the raven moves in and out and the light inside blinds you. Was a purple replacement the consensus? And what size and style bulb is in there?

#9079 1 year ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

Not bad when you compare it to the EHoH topper at $1000!

Just remove the bulb,much better I tried the purple and not much better!

#9081 1 year ago

For anyone looking for a topper, email gameroomguys.com and order one from them. I did that a few weeks ago, they show of stock but they will ship it out as soon as they get them. I got my topper yesterday.

Looks great! I’m a big fan of the plastic protectors and LED flipper buttons. They are such inexpensive upgrades. It’s almost a no brainer for what they do and the difference they make.

I just added Pinstadiums as my Munster's is at the end of my row away from the overhead light and I found it too dark. Install took about 20 minutes but you can do it in 10 if you know what you're doing- this was my first one .
I took a pic of the GI lighted playfield. Pinstadiums also have a connection to your flashers and are flash bulb bright when activated, pretty neat (I connected to the amber flasher near Lilly.
All in all a good investment though I see no need on my other games.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Spot is starting to refuse to go back into the basement after he shows up. I've taken the mechanism apart and cleaned it really well and that resolved it for a day or two but now he's starting to stick up again. I can't for the life of me figure out what is binding up. I almost think it's the sleeve inside the solenoid has shrunk but when I get everything cleaned up nicely I don't feel any binding. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem.

Do you have any mods on this area?

#9091 1 year ago

No mods on my machine other than the 3d print to keep the wireform from bending. Everything else is stock.

What happens when Spot is stuck in the up position and you try to push him back down? Is there any resistance?

#9093 1 year ago

Yes, when fully extended it feels like it's locked like it's hooked on something. Then as soon as it gets past whatever is sticking it drops freely. Oddest thing. It has always had this sticking thing and I originally thought it was that the edge of the metal bit on top of spot was catching but that is not what it was doing. It just wasn't sticking enough for it to not fall down. Now it's getting worse. Seems to be internal somewhere.

When I installed the 3D print to keep the wireform from bending, I had a similar issue where Spot was not going down. Turns out some of the wires were bunching in this area. Later I noticed that Herman's face wasn't lighting during the game. Apparently I didn't get the spot light for Herman routed and aligned correctly. I'm pretty sure these were the wires that were bunching and keeping Spot up. Once I fixed the spot light for Herman, it was all good.

Hey, just checking in. Does this game still suck with crappy rule set? Are they ever going to fix the horrible code? I’m anxiously awaiting my Avengers premium where I know Elwin will not abandon the code.

As i understand the rule set is done, there will not be much altering. For the sucking, i guess it's your personal impression.
For me it's not sucking and makes fun and adds a lot to others machines i have. I play munsters a lot, it's just fun to have this "simple" ruleset in place and just get the games going. But tastes differ from person to person.

i hope you will have have fun with yur Avengers premium.

They didn’t abandon the code. They made a game. You don’t like it. Move on.

Thanks, I'll take a look at the wires. I had the entire mech out of the machine and could feel the catching of the plunger itself somewhere in the sleeve but maybe it is wires doing it. Will check and report back

Dwight could at least put the midnight and family fun modes in regular game play ,that would be nice or at least family fun mode or what ever it’s called!
