Two sling spots aimed at the center of the playfield would brighten it up sufficiently if it bothered you.
I think it looks great the way it is.

Quoted from mpnox:

Yeah I kinda reacted the same way, looks very empty right in the middle but it's not too bad actually.
Of course Pin Stadiums would light this baby up like a christmas tree.
EDIT: Took a picture with glass off and turned down the ambient light.

Wow what a beautiful game that is, i’m jealous!!! Love seeing these unboxing pics.

Quoted from Rum-Z:

That line is the opening of the cellar door in the floor of the Munster's house that Grandpa is coming out of.

And it looks far worse in pictures than it does in person.

Sorry about the picture spam but here are some detail pics.

On the topper issue, and I am not sure about where and in what twitch stream I heard it, but I thought John Borg said when they started to work on Munsters that they came up with the Raven mech right away... now what was he refering to when he said that, does the Raven shot have some kind of diverter or mech on it or was he alluding to a playfield toy that I havent seen, or is it part of an as yet undisclosed interactive topper? Or did anyone else remember him saying that and what he was refering to in regards to the game?

There's a bash toy under the left ramp that pops out? Maybe thats what he was referring to?

Quoted from bigd1979:

Don’t think he was talking about Spot, but it could have been he misspoke, that is he meant to say Spot and not Raven, but nobody corrected him either, so it was unclear what “Raven” mech he was refering to, which is why I ask and speculate if it was not in reference to something we havent seen yet? The LCD image looks like a wood frame carved in the same style as a coo coo clock, which makes me think there could be a interactive Raven topper coming... I am sure people will be patient and wait queitly after ordering it though... right? Does the topper need UL certification seperately because it wasn’t certified wih the pin? Maybe that is the hold up on SW topper?

Agree, it's Munsters.

Ambience is great!

#210 6 months ago

Looks like it could use some spotlights to light the center of the playfield. Pro looks beautiful, though.

#211 6 months ago

Hi Munsters owners. I have a question: Did Stern use the Bally Williams style corner reinforcements on the PRO Model?
I see Stern has replaced the terrible LIFT PEGS with the Glide-Rails we are used to seeing on the Premium and Pro.
Stern Started using the BW brackets on StarWars but I have not heard much about it since then.

Nice to know they are putting the brackets in the corners. Its the little things that matter sometimes.

#214 6 months ago
Quoted from wfumed2:

From what I've read and heard, Level 2 is harder than Level 1 but I am just curious in what ways...

I thought it was interesting that Borg mentioned that Keith and Tim had not been able to complete level 2. Since Keith is one of the best players in the world, it sounds like beating level 2 is going to be very difficult.

Just got word a bit ago that my Pro should ship out tomorrow or Monday. Can’t wait!

That line is there so you know where to cut using your jigsaw to install the lower playfield - DIY install your own lower playfield mod!

Congrats. I guess I didn't realize (notice) that the Pro model doesn't have the LED light tree plastic on the left Raven ramp? Why would that be as it doesn't seem specific to the LE and Premium as far as modes?

Inserts cld not b on the playfield bc of the lower playfield..... pro dont have it so insert lights are on the playfield.

#222 6 months ago

Just joined the club today with a Munsters Premium! Was planning on skipping this model but the more I seen and read about this release, the more excited I got about it. The Munsters was one of my favorite shows back in the day!

#223 6 months ago

Is the side artwork on these significantly darker in real life than in the promo photos or just an illusion?

I would say the 2nd picture is accurate. The first picture is probably just bad lighting or a bad camera.

#225 6 months ago

Just check image gallery (top of page) on any of the munster threads and you will see many real photos that are nice and bright.

Oh. I was referring to this sign to with LED's to the left or Herman. Had not noticed it was not on the Pro.

Correct ... the premium /le have those signs above both ramps bc the inserts are not on the playfield.

Do you have an estimate of when are they going to deliver your Pinball please ronlisa? ...and congratulations!

Yes I don't have any good lighting in that room so that makes the side look darker than it really is.
Picture taken with iPhone Xs, should be good enough.

It's official ... last night, my wife and I ordered our first ever NIB from Flip N Out Pinball ... a Munsters Pro!

I had A LOT of questions and LOVE talking pinball ... Zach was AWESOME!! ... He spent almost an hour on the phone answering all my questions and chatting about pinball.

I'm excited to add Munsters to our gameroom!

Congrats on your first new game! Zach will treat you right!

Absolutely!

I had never interacted with him before other than watching him on SDTM. My wife and I really enjoy watching the show on YouTube. The chemistry between Zach and Greg is often hilarious!

That being said ... now as a distributor, I know Zach's job is to sell pinball machines, but during our conversation I never felt pressured to buy, (in fact, he told my wife and I to sleep on it, before committing.)

All in all, I feel super confident making our first NIB purchase from him.

Zach is a good honest guy. If any problems should arise he will take care of you I guarantee it. I remember when i bought my first NIB game it literally almost made me sick after i thought about how much money that i spent on a toy. My gf said you dont seem very happy for a guy that just bought a brand new pinball machine. I just kinda sat there and said i cant explain it but it just doesn’t feel right to spend that kind of money on a pinball machine. After i got it set up and playing it all of those thoughts went away and i was like a kid on Christmas Day. Since then i have bought five more games and i love the first one i bought still just as much as the last one.....no regrets what so ever. I love this hobby!

Holding out for the "LEM" version (Limited Electro-Mechanical) to come out, then I'm in!

Knowing my luck if I held out for a “LEM” version, I would end up getting the last “LEMon” version on the tree.

Ha ha I have that same thing happen with every purchase!!!!!

Yep i know what you mean Greg. My first NIB was the worst experience though. When i say I almost got sick, im not joking one bit. After being in the hobby awhile though and understanding how things work it doesn’t bother me too much because i know that i can sell my games if i wanted to at a minimal loss. Pinball machines are like money in the bank compared to most hobbies that people lose their ass on.

Could we get it detailed in Silver?

#244 6 months ago

fuuuuuck cant come on here it gets me too pumped for real

#245 6 months ago
Quoted from Sethman:

That was taken with a flash photo so it looks more gold then it really is. It's actually more of a bronze color to match the correct door knocker. You could easily repaint it any color you like but for now we need to stay the coarse with the wood and bronze look. Thanks for the input though!!

I was told mine and a friends might be here Tuesday but it might take me a day or 2 to work out our schedule to get mine from his place to mine.

#247 6 months ago

I just got a message from a different friend that they were on the way home with theirs so operators are receiving their machines and I'm assuming some of the first to commit will be in this batch and then more pros in a week or 2.

#248 6 months ago

Got mine today, it is fun and fast! It is as fast as AC/DC and and lots of fun shots!! So far I love it and my wife loves it too, which is a huge win. She beat me twice and is very happy to remind me!
