He’s wondering which specific issues you mentioned to Dwight I think.

Yep, just wondering if I need to report mine if they're already being worked on.

Got to say Munster Madness with multiball on both Playfield’s at once is the most unique pinball experience I’ve ever had. Trapping up on the main PF, playing the lower with the 2nd flipper buttons, then resuming on the main Playfield,l when the timer runs out, is a freakin blast.

What was the family issues? Did your wife find the invoice to the pinball machine and lose her mind?

This is my first pin so it took a while to set up. I installed a shaker motor, HD glass, and my GF installed the art blades, it took her like 5 minutes it was crazy.

Shout out to Zach @ Flip N Out for helping me get this machine!

We were contacted Monday night by our distributor musiccitypinball that the pin had just arrived and was being unloaded off the truck. Unfortunately for us, by the time that the truck had gottten there and unloaded, it was too late for us to run up and get it.

So, yesterday, the Mrs (it was her birthday present) set off to Nashville to pick up our Munsters Premium. They told us to be sure that we called out a little ahead to make sure that someone was there when we got there as they would be off making deliveries most of the day. She called about 30 minutes out and when she arrived, one of their techs was waiting with the pin already loaded on a hand truck. Five or so minutes later, with the pin now securely loaded in the back of her 2006 Jeep Liberty, she headed off for the house.

Freshly home from work, I met her in the driveway as she pulled up. Our son helped me off-load the pin and move it into BelleHall.

IMG_20190402_155516 (resized).jpg

Just cutting one side off the box, we were amazed at how beautiful the cabinet art was.

IMG_20190402_160010 (resized).jpg

But we continued with the usual process of getting the pin on all fours and pulling the glass.

IMG_20190402_161326 (resized).jpg

IMG_20190402_163417 (resized).jpg

According to the tag, the machine was "born" 28 March. Must have been that the paint on the cab was still wet when they put it in the box as we had a little paint stick to the cardboard protectors around the band that we'll need to go back and touch up.

The instructions for installing the balls in the lower playfield were well laid out, however we ignored them completly and chose to remove the lower playfield and give it a coat of wax. There are 4 nuts and 3 cable connections to remove and the lower playfield was free. A quick wax and we inserted the balls into the lower playfield and reattached the lower playfield.

I was a little nearvous cutting the zip tie that held Herman down. It was real tight and not a lot of room to get in there, but we got that taken care of and started to wax the main playfield, clean the glass, and lock down the back box.

Setting it into its new home, we leveled the playfield and set the pitch to 6.8 degrees. Then updated to the latest code.

IMG_20190402_180323 (resized).jpg

I normally do a switch test, even on a new machine, before buttoning it all back up, but I was probably distracted by how awesome this thing looks, and the Mrs itching for that first game. We went and put in the balls, buttoned it up, and we were finally ready to start playing.

IMG_20190402_181035 (resized).jpg

We played a pro before we decided to purchase the machine around Valentine's Day, so we knew what the basic game play was like. But with the addition of the lower playfield , we found ouselves looking to hit Grandpa's basement as our main objective to see what we could do with it.

I only got a couple of games in as the machine was being heavily played by the rest of the family, but my initial thought was that, while I like the cut scenes, some of them are a bit long and slow down the pace of play. I didn't recall the cut scenes being that long when we played the pro version back in February, but then again, they may have been and I just don't remember. I also thought that they could stand to cut the cut scene when the ball drains and move on. As it stands now, you could be in the middle of a cut scene, drain, and the scene keeps playing for several seconds while you just wait.

I like the ramp shots and the lane that goes off the back of the playfield and comes back around. The bronze wire is also a nice touch.

We have blades on order and will add them once they arrive.

Kind of disappointed at the lack of promo plastic, but do like the slingshot cover plastic that was added to the premium. Also disappointed by the poor quality of balls that these things ship with. Starting to look for replacements - any thoughts?

We are still trying to remember to Zap when we need to, however I found that bending at the waist and hitting it with my stomach was a good approach to ensure that my hands stay where they are supposed to. Also tring to figure out the best way to play all four flippers at once.

Did I mention how nice this thing looks?

When you put on the art blades, it looks like you missed putting the cut outs back on over the hinge bolt. They just stick over the exposed nut.

One of the cut outs was missing when I got the blades from Stern. I kinda like the blades without them, so no biggie.

Freaking Awsome!!

#2577 47 days ago

Wesmantooth what are we looking at on the playfield? Are those oily ball trails from someone at Stern testing it or something else?

New balls seem to all have some oil residue on them, so I was just wondering if that's where that came from. One time I totally forgot to clean some brand new balls off and I put them in one of my machines, and played a few balls and I had similar results, LOL... that was fun to clean-up. So I just thought I'd ask.

#2578 47 days ago

It looks like scratch but I’ll have to take the glass off and check

Quoted from CTHOMAS1998:

Ok, so I called Stern, and the wireforms are left that way in order to look "industrial".....ok.

Explanation from Christopher Franchi on the 'unfinished' wire forms, taken from an interview published on TWIP -
https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/this-week-in-pinball-january-21st-2019/

"So we’re [in a meeting] going through the CAD drawing…and I’m sitting there and right next to us, we have a whitewood, probably 75% complete. And he [John Borg] is pointing things out and I’m sitting down, and I’m kind of stretching up and looking over the rail into the playfield, and I see these wire form ramps. And they look like nickel, they’re not chrome, they’re like a dull metal. And wherever there is a spot weld there is a black singe mark on it, and I’m thinking “what is this” because I’ve never seen these unfinished…and I’m looking at it and I’m like “That is so Munsters” and…I said you have to keep these like this…it is perfect just like it is. Luckily they agreed. It wasn’t a cost cutting thing at all, it was an aesthetic choice. They still have it clear coated, but it was with that look. And it just looks fantastic in the game…John is very collaborative, it is – the word “team” is just perfect [for the group that worked on Munsters]."
