I still think IF they add and or change anything Dwight will do it cause he wants to

He’s the man he will do something special

I ordered a pair of speaker gaskets so my speakers won't be pushed against the grill. While I was digging through the LE manual I also noticed there was an additional speaker plate. I wasn't sure what it was for so I ordered a pair as well. As it turns out, this is what creates the gold ring on the LE speaker box. I'll be picking up some silver paint this weekend and painting them, but they do look kinda cool on the Premium.

Ya this looks sweet.. I wanna upgade my speakers might order these up. I do think silver will look just as great. Great idea.

Send a new part meaning what?

New wire form without the ring that is catching the ball. No deflector. Should work.

Thanks for the clarification. I will be contacting my distributor on Monday.

I knew Pinball Life was selling the replacement speaker plates for the bigger 5 1/4" speakers and was just wondering tonight where people were getting their gaskets and 1/2" spacers from for them. I'm a bit surprised Stern will sell these LE parts to just anyone and even more surprised they are selling the gold surrounds. Not quite as surprised as I was when I realized that the gold surrounds were metal and not plastic....but still pretty surprised. I think the silver surrounds should match the trim and premium's black and white theme well.

Fun Fact: If a person would choose to use my SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit in this type of setup....they wouldn't need the additional gaskets and 1/2" spacers as my speaker light frames provide the extra 1/2" of front mounting space that the extended tweeters need. They also look pretty sweet with those white coned Kenwood speakers. My upcoming (next week) Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits are shown in the video.

Anyone happen to have extensive gametime on all three models (or Pro together with Premium/LE)? Interested in hearing which model you prefer and why.

All the models are fun but the lower playfield is really nice in my opinion. I hate lower playfields and i was going to get a pro and some of my friends told me that the lower playfield was awesome so i took a chance and changed my order from a pro to a premium and im glad that i did because this game is a dream theme for me. I love this game and i just got done playing it and it kicked my ass all nite. I couldn’t get anything going tonight, the game is quite a challenge and its not an easy game. I love my Munsters Premium.

I agree with Who-Dey a 1000%. Love love the Prem or LE if you like the color version, lower PF is really well integrated into the machine and adds to the play. I have seen the Pro model but have not played one in person, playfield does look beautiful but IMHO there is just too much underdeveloped real-estate between the flippers and slings up to Herman and Grandpa. I really enjoy that mini pf especially during MM and 12aMM

I emailed Stern directly and explained to them that I didnt have an LE but wanted an LE look on my premium. Stern told me to give the part numbers to my local distributor so they could be ordered.

I ordered a set of your speaker lights but haven't installed them yet. I'm kicking around the idea of mounting the speaker lights behind the 5 1/4 plate so that light will only shine through the speakers.

#3411 1 year ago
Quoted from JayLar:

Very good ideas. Would also like to see something more on the horror-side as the game is very lighthearted right now.

The Munsters was a very lighthearted show, not sure if we'll see horror to the likes of Freddy, BSD, MS Frankenstein etc.. Remember in their minds at the time they were the normal and after watching for a while we felt that way too about them lol, even spot probably the most fierce creature in the show was a chicken scared of his own shadow. IMHO the lighthearted fits in flawless with the theme as the show was intended for family fun and now a pinball blast.

BTW I heard a few complaints about the laugh tracks during game play but I think it's awesome and fits well.

I guess I mean more moments with the characters being "scary" fully aware its supposed to be funny.

#3413 1 year ago

Ahh ok, I see your point. The Munsters have packed so much into an 80 episodes 2 seasons that I love just to see more of them in general with more calls from the actual characters as well. For example grandpa really doesn’t say anything during play except at game over on some the match score vids. Most of the calls they used are from season one first few episodes, they really need to expand their material search to later episodes as well.

I know it used to be if you wanted LE parts Stern would ask for your serial number to make sure you were an LE owner. On backglasses they would even make you return the shards of a broken backglass to be allowed to buy a replacement.

I heard awhile back that Pinball Life was selling the LE speaker plates for the 5 1/4" speakers. I now see they have the speaker gaskets and 1/2" spacers also. They even sell the red plastic speaker surround (used for Batman 66 SLE, Deadpool LE, Iron Maiden LE and Black Knight SoR LE), but I didn't see the gold metal ones used in Munsters LE.

#3415 1 year ago

The b66SLE ones are lit. Pretty sure the Pinball Life ones aren’t lit.

#3416 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

The b66SLE ones are lit. Pretty sure the Pinball Life ones aren’t lit.

It seems the part number that Pinball Life has is red and made for Iron Maiden. After looking at all of the LE games that use these surrounds....it seems that none of them have the same part number. Black Knight: SoR still does not have it's manual released so I don't know if it has the same part number of any of the others or not.

I believe the only difference in these part numbers are the colors and materiel that they are made out of. The lighting that Batman 66 and Deadpool have are not connected with these surrounds and they are lit by a separate part that simply holds lights that point at the surrounds. This is a slight improvement over what Stern did in Star Trek LE and Mustang LE, but the surrounds themselves do not light up or have lights in them. The lights mounted behind them just shines through them.

I just realized the color was different on Batman 66 SLV vs Iron Maiden and Deadpool (orange vs red), but I wonder what the different is between Deadpool and Iron Maiden (different shade of red, translucent red instead of opaque red materiel)? I was thinking they had all been red until The Munsters gold (metal) ones.

Love playing this game with my wife especially when I tell her to shoot kitty target, she says I don’t see it. I tell her there blue insert, I don’t see it rinse and repeat lol.

Ok here is my 10 minute fix for her, she can see kitty now.

Yeah tell me about it. This morning one of my pop bumpers starting going off on it's own. I had to pull the glass, lift the field and adjust a leaf spring in order to fix it. These shouldn't be issues on new machines.

You think everything leaving the factory is 100%? Did you buy yours NIB? Or was it a floor model checked out by your dealer?

Have you ever worked on an assembly line? I have. Assembly lines are not pictures of perfection. Things break and have to be replaced once the unit has left the line and is in a “recovery area”.

Every new car at every dealership goes through “new car detail” where final adjustments are made like adjusting headlights.

So, a switch has gone out of adjustment. There may be reasons to be bitching about problems with a new pinball machine. This is not one of them.

These games get beat up pretty good during shipping. Semis dont ride like Cadillacs thats for sure.

I have a Pro with 525 games on it now, love it and have got the game play down pretty good. That said I had the opportunity to play an LE a few weeks ago (about 12 games), and was able to get some extensive play on the lower playfield. That was enough play to confirm for me that I wanted to upgrade to a Premium. It just added another dimension to what is already a great game. I plan on keeping this game in my collection for a long time so for me it was worth upgrading. I think anyone who has a Pro and likes it and has a chance to play a Premium or LE will find it just that much better and enjoyable.

If all goes well I'll be posting photos of my Premium in a couple weeks.

I hit the road tonight. When I get home I have to figure out where I am going to squeeze in a Munsters I just bought.

At TPF, I played Alice Cooper and liked it. I also played Octoberfest and I liked, too. And I was able to get several games in on The Beatles. I really like The Beatles.

But I liked Munsters enough clean out the bank account and buy one.

I think what really did it for me was that orbit shot and that right hand 180 degree ramp. Plus it is just god damned fast.

Oh, and about the time I turned 16 I started washing dishes for a night job. There was not much time for TV and the most I ever saw of The Munsters was about 10 minutes worth.

cottonm4: Did you grab a Premium?

#3432 1 year ago

Hi guys again I’m sorry I was actually mistaken about what I had connected to my lower play field. It isn’t the grandpa chair. I have the G.I. flasher from my baby pin stadiums and the fourth Orion flasher from my large Pin Stadiums connected to the same lower play field flasher. Since neither draw power from the alligator clips can anyone figure out why that’s causing an issue with Node board 8 overcurrent?

#3437 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yes. Okay here is pretty much what I discovered after everyone’s advice and research. With just one Pinstadium connected to the flasher, regardless of which one, there is no problem. If I connect both to the same I get that warning, no matter how I hook them up. So after trying multiple things I ended up having to change the setup. No more node problems though.

In 2019 Munsters and ID4 left. Only 2 games.
I'm trying to unload RZLE after 2.5 years.

I guess my underwear is really smelly after about 6 months before I change it as that's about the average length I keep games I do not like.

I did not like Munsters and its code. I love the theme, design and art.

Unfortunately, the code is bad. On MB, i plan on keeping it 5 plus years or more.
