Quoted from Cgc-Ashley:

The game with the topper is 7 feet tall. And to address an earlier question in this thread, we will be doing the serial number matching for LE owners.

Thanks for the update Cgc-Ashley! I cant wait to see and play the game. Bring it on!

Anyword on final approval Ashley? I know we are all anxious to see pics; just seems like it is taking forever since reveal was supposed to happen over 5 months ago. As an AFM LE owner I’m dying to put a Bash next to it

#1353 9 months ago

Eleven hour round trip today to play the Remake—worth every second. Game is stunning and plays fast! Doug gave us a tour of the production process which made it evident why their quality rocks.

That makes sense. Thanks

Quoted from epthegeek:

Yeah, that was probably too much information, given that the community in general knows what was cut from the original.

This is why we can't have nice things... Be great if individuals would just keep quiet like they were asked to.

HaHaHa!

So, the machine is almost as tall as Frankenstein?

Do tell, what was cut from the original design.

For those who have actually flipped it:

I've got an AFMrLE that I love, and have never regretted getting the LE.

I am a bit on the fence about whether to go for the LE or the SE on MBr.

Without getting into any specifics, are the LE features as much of an improvement over the SE as they are on AFMr? We can leave the topper off for purposes of this discussion, and assume they are equally cool (and tall).

I'm not asking about what the features are, just how big the "wow!" jump is between the SE and LE.

Game play and features you would be safe with either decision. As to the previous post Nothing was cut by CGC only Added. They have shown in previous titles they are not in the business to give you Less of a game or quality. Only exceed the originals example.

I really like my MMrLE

I skipped on the AFMr

Plan on getting the MBrLE though

#1364 9 months ago

CGC Ashley, i will gladly trade 10,000 Pinsider speculation posts for 1 of yours! Thanks for a couple of details! Looking forward to the reveal!

#1365 9 months ago

im sure this has been discussed before but, what's the deal on the remakes not being serviceable or lack of replacement parts when compared to the originals?

#1366 9 months ago
Quoted from mollyspub:

There is no deal. Both have identical cabinets, playfields, and playfield parts. Remakes have updated electronics and lights. Some surface mount, some important ones like drive transistors through hole. Some people worry what if in ten years. Some people worry what if in 30 plus years original boards will have more obsolete parts.

You need different tools and skills for surface mount. Only deal I can think of.

What was cut from the original Monster Bash design?

#1371 9 months ago
Quoted from Arcade:

Can’t wait to see it.
But 16 to 18” would be crazy massive for a topper. Hopefully it is the size of the AFM topper.
Sometimes bigger is not better.

I’d guess the AFM topper is more like 8 inches

#1372 9 months ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

As others have mentioned, one thing was a jump ramp. This is a pic from a MB prototype. This was originally in front of Frankenstein but didn't make its way to production models.

[quoted image]

It would be odd to get that back in the remake. It would play too different from the originals. In my opinion it makes the spinner shot and left ramp hard to hit. Also, if you hit it from the side wouldn't it create many more air balls?

#1374 9 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

...rest assured to all the Very long wait will be worth it and in typical CGC form they executed Superbly on this title as well.

So ... it will be worth the wait and it was executed superbly.... Got just the info I needed, will be ordering once available.

In my opinion, when you exclude the topper, there is very little difference between the 2. I believe any extras added to playfield, was exactly the same between LE and SE. Just a few small things on outside of machine were different.

It looks like the one listed for sale is just so the West Chicago pinball company getting a list of how many want to buy the machine from them.

He's talking about an original MB Proto with the Frank jump ramp.

Yes I was

#1380 9 months ago

Wolfman does not have a figure in the original MB, there's a mod for that though. Maybe that's added in the remake?

#1381 9 months ago

Let's discuss the elephant in the room, which versions come with a large color dmd? CE & LE but not STD?

#1382 9 months ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

If they go by what they did with AFMR then the Classic will not have the larger color display. The SE (Special Edition) will and so will the LE. Don't confuse the JJP CE which stands for Collectors Edition with Classic. But again as a dealer we don't know yet as nothing has been sent to us about this game other than confirmation that it is indeed Monster Bash.

#1383 9 months ago

I doubt the jump ramp comes back. There were good reasons it was left out. My guesses for changes are aesthetic: Wolfman figure, enhanced lab toys, like a Jacob's ladder simulation using plasma, better painted figures, a moon with the phases lit on the back panel behind the Wolfman maybe.

Ok I am not trying to poke at you again but they did not Have an SE in the room so I question how you are suggesting the similarities of these products? There were 2 LE models and an original in the room. No SE to make assumptions or statements about for the record for anyone using these comments to make a buying decision. Just avoiding any confusion over Assumed statements.

#1385 9 months ago

I would assume people will make buying decisions upon the actual reveal and disclosure of features amongst the versions and not based on any tester comments

Maybe there are one or two dummies going off those very informative comments

#1386 9 months ago

Definitely interested in seeing what CGC has come up with. I don’t have a lot of time on MB, I’ve probably played it more on the pinball arcade. I want to get MMr and love my AFMrLE.

#1387 9 months ago

Regarding MB and Cliffy's - I take it they are a must have for this game, especially for the scope. Is this a good assumption?
Also, will they put them in at the factory when building or does it have to be done after the sale by the owner?

I put them on my hobbit first week - and am glad I did as those VUK shots are used alot.

#1388 9 months ago
Quoted from Goronic:

Yes. However, I am guessing they will have some protection from factory like AFM has. Time will tell if this will be enough. I am also wondering if the Drac track has any protection. I have seen ones that are pretty beat up.

Worth mentioning is that on a brand new PF, the Mantis scoop is better - fewer rejects and it looks better, and I do believe it protects the scoop wood better. If it’s already worn, then Cliffy it up

ARMRLE has very little if any factory protection...all these games need Cliffy protectors in my opinion...its crazy that the factory ignores this issue. They would be smart to include so they eliminate customer calls and issues...seems like cheap insurance to me

Your auto dealer buy your car insurance?

#1392 9 months ago
Quoted from jcoble:

not sure I understand your point....my point is that if they included they would protect their games and probably cut down on warranty and field issues. AFMRLE came with none (and needed them) so I drove to Cliff's house and picked them up. Much easier to install at the factory versus after the game is already built. That being said I am almost certain they won't include.

Quoted from cpr9999:

I'm guessing it's this:

“Igor sculpture. For about a day I was going to animate Igor when Frank’s table came down, note the bar. Then reality intruded and I had to focus on something important.” – George Gomez

They have a Mantis style protector and mine has been holding up quite well. YMMV

#1395 9 months ago
Quoted from Only_Pinball:

Agree, but it doesn't protect the top of the play field so I installed the Cliffy as well. Although it was kind of a pain in the ass to install.

Quoted from PtownPin:

That's my point - took me 4 hours to get cliffy's on the hobbit. Glad I did, but had to take A LOT of stuff off the playfield to get those VUK hole protectors on. I would rather they slap on a cliffy (or Mantis) at the factory. Oh well...they probably won't.

I'm with ya....Hobbit was a bit of a pain in the ass.....frankly most are a pain to install after the fact....they would take 10 minutes if done at the factory...DI LE was a primary example of a factory trying to do it themselves, and they totally screwed it up...I had to remove their protector and install Cliffs...

What day did you go? I played on Saturday and there were 3, an original, a LE and a SE. They pointed out the differences between the LE and SE to me.

#1399 9 months ago

Only thing they didnt have out was their classic edition.

#1400 9 months ago

What are the differences in this updated version?
