Per TWIP April 1st announcement: “The topper has Black Knight’s head, probably six inches high by 3 inches wide. A big ostrich feather sticking out of the top of it. It is totally robotic, it can look left and look right. It also has modulating LEDs in the mask, where all the holes are…so he can express anything he wants…when it says “No way”, it is going to shake his head left and right. And he is going to rock his head back and [laugh]…I think it is the best topper ever.” - Steve Ritchie

As AUKraut pointed out Steve talked about this weeks ago when he was interviewed by Nate. Highly doubt it's a joke.

You just have to wait 2 years for it to be done like SW right

Nah, that’s the beauty of original themes. Shouldn’t have the hang ups

Probably. Maybe a lot more.

Probably. I’m betting you it will cost significantly more.

Well, some are 400 and some are 500. Hopefully it’s not more than 500

Anything other than crickets?

#17 1 year ago

I'm curious if a photo or video has been released.

Nothing to offer for time-frame. The price provided to me: $499US (stern#502-7095-00).

#18 1 year ago
Quoted from John_I:

I believe the order is:
GB code
Sw topper
Musters topper- to be shown on a color Premium version.
Then BKsor topper.

Feel free to shuffle the deck and re arrange daily.

At this point it seems most of Stern is on vacation based on Facebook posts 8).

I'm not going to wait 6 months to a year or longer and pay $500, I'm going to make my own topper.

Is this actually coming out? I haven’t been able to confirm with anyone at Stern

#26 1 year ago

Steve told me at Pintastic that the topper was awesome and was coming out, so my guess is they are going to produce it. Despite the game not selling well, I would imagine there are enough owners willing to buy it that it would make sense to produce it. Let’s be honest, there has not been a topper to date that didn’t sell out.......they don’t produce enough!

Will probably be out before the Star Wars topper

#28 1 year ago

I will definitely be getting this for my L/E

How do you know the game's not selling well?

Oh, for a second there I thought you had access to Stern’s books. Turns out, you were just talking out of your arse.

"Soon"

At this point I think I'm ready to say that this one is just not going to happen.

Think again. From Pinball Expo:

Scheduled to be released with the next code update so that folks can order and receive them by Xmas. Tim's adding more interactions and effects in the interim (among everything else he's doing.) Price has been spotted as $429.00 - not cheap, but certainly less that I was expecting.

#36 1 year ago

(Insert TAKE MY MONEY gif)

#37 1 year ago

Hell yeah! That's the kind of news I was hoping for!

#38 1 year ago

A little longer footage from Pinball Expo:

Gary Stern announced the topper in his opening remarks ahead of the Stern Factory Tour - and pointed to the very first functional one sitting atop a BKSOR Premium in the Stern Arcade area where the most recent/currently in production Stern games are available to play.

The knight's head on the topper can move left, right, up and down along with doing combos of two directions neighboring each other at 90 degrees (i.e., NE, NW, SE, and SW - but not NS and EW naturally!) Tim is working on making the topper have a lot of interactions and syncing the callouts to the mask last I heard.

Gotta have it!!!

#39 1 year ago

Seen this in person in action at expo even got a chance to play a couple games with Steve. The topper is amazing and probably the best topper that Stern has made. Steve even mentioned they are going into the studio to record even more custom callout for BKSOR. The game has really shaped up to become a fantastic pin.

I guess...Why not ?

#42 1 year ago

I'm not going to deny this is probably the coolest topper ever created, but why put so much effort into a topper for a game hardly anyone bought?

Either way the topper is pretty bad-ass! Same goes for Munsters might be one of if not the most boring games Stern has ever made but the topper is pretty bad ass! I hope Stern keeps making toppers because they're really really good at it... I just wish they would sell the Batman 66 topper.

FINALLY Stern does SOMETHING better than Jersey Jack. Jersey Jack needs to step up and do some bad ass toppers.

If I had to rank the best toppers I've seen I'm going in this direction...

1) Black Knight
2) MM New Topper
3) Monster Bash
4) Attack from Mars
5) Batman 66

HM: Munsters

The topper was planned from the beginning - it's not like they just started working on it a couple of weeks ago.

And given how great of a topper it is as we all concur, why scrap it? This way people who own a BKSOR can buy the topper to go with their game - and the people who don't own a BKSOR can buy a game to go with their topper.

#44 1 year ago

Looks like the moving BK head has the same mech as the JPLE dino head.

#45 1 year ago

Must have topper for my favourite pinball game.

The Munnsters cuckoo clock topper is better than a few of those you mentioned

1. Whirlwind
2. Black Knight SOR
3. Attack From Mars LE
4. White Water
5. Fish Tales

#48 1 year ago

Whirlwind to me it not a good topper its just a cheesy looking fan. Its hard to compare that to something as cool as these other toppers.

Fish Tales is cool with the flapping fish. White water and Adams Family are more or less the same thing, and they're fine. But they don't compete with this Black Knight. I thought the coolest mech I've ever seen on a pinball with the T-REX in JP... now I'm thinking the coolest thing I've seen is this Black Knight topper. JJP Topper for Pirates CE was also very cool... but nothing beats this Black Knight Topper.

I'm going on record here and stating that Chicago Gaming in my opinion is STILL THE KING of Toppers. They're knocking it out of the park three games in a row. Stern is now getting into the game and they're showing they mean business. Chicago Gaming however they're now setting the standard for toppers with Stern right behind them. I'm hopping JJP can put their techs to use on toppers in the future. No more basic art toppers on plastic... lets see stuff that is sculpted and moves or in BK case talks! Great job Stern.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the BK topper?

#50 1 year ago

I’m not a big topper guy but to me AFM is the top topper.
