Any guesses on the MBr, err I mean #3, pricing?
Quoted from Flowst:
I'm lucky to have a fun collection already. I bought the MMr and AFMr and they are wonderful. What I have always wanted and held off on buying used is my grail game, Monster Bash. With the promise it is to be remade and just around the corner, I had money in hand.
Now with the endless delays, I had enough. I put that money into other areas and couldn't buy a new LE MB remake at this time.
Not to say I wont at some point, but I am one sale that is "sacrificed".
All do respect that is YOUR time table and not CGC's. I think MB will be great when it gets here - I am going to wait it out.
Quoted from parabol420:
Lloyd, you are a great guy and a tremendous asset to this community, but I really feel you should stop posting stuff like this. You aren't adding anything substantial to the conversation and only getting people hyped up more, ie see the guy who sold his only pin so he could buy CGC #3 because we were told it was announcing at Expo. Unless you are willing to share some inside information, this really doesnt help and in my opinion, only makes it worse.
Bad joke or bad taste? Not sure which but this is the first time I have seen anyone throw any of Lloyd's lighthearted comments back in his face before
Quoted from tmntrule999:
Yeah I promised I would not give any spoilers, but let's just say it played very nice and the topper on the deluxe as well as the video on the color digital screen were both amazing!!!!!
I am soooooo getting this pin. How tall is it with the topper? How about afm with topper? I am worried it may not fit in my basement due to my slightly lower than normal ceilings
I know the game is rather shallow and perhaps easy. But man I smile every time I play it. Love the toys, callouts, and music. Also love the color and art on the cabinet.
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?
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.
Quoted from PtownPin:
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.
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 agree with what others have said about 'think original - but new' - and a cool new topper and that will get you closer to reality. And that being the case I have no idea why the final reveal and production starting is taking sooooo long. But I am still going to get it - just very surprised at the long delays.
Quoted from WackyBrakke:
I’m sure they aren’t “dragging it out” must be a legitimate reason. The game will be the game and it will sell just fine.
I agree - but did MM and AFM take this long to approve if there were close to original as well. I think there actually is a 'new' item in the top left that is a nice add - but still - I thought this was going to be announced and shown back in the spring. Oh well.
Looking for the SE myself. I don't think I can afford the LE; what ever cost it is
I am hoping the SE still has most of the goodies on it.
You may very well be right, but why in the world would the reveal be taking so long from licensing approval if they are essentially building the same thing that was approved/built 20 years ago?
My plans are to get the SE (if it ever comes out). Thanks for posting the pictures - we FINALLY got something to get excited about. I think the topper is cool and will do nicely.
Damn right we will never know. We have only heard 1 thing from CGC since Spring - and that is only 'Yeah, it's MB'. --- And that was due to it being uncovered.
For God's sake, aside from that admission (not really an announcement) we may not have heard anything at all - and it is October.
Quoted from Yelobird:
Not investors in secret spy satellites lol
No kidding - they are making pinball machine games - not fighter jets.
Here is the MBr messaging:
The MB remake (MBr) will use the latest in pinball technology to renew a pinball classic. It will have modern LED lighting, updated play field toys and mechs to improve reliability. SE and LE buyers will have a new and amazing pinball machine topper.
[[Insert cool pictures of machine here]]
We expect to begin shipping later this year. The models are [[insert models and cost here]] *
* Final game features and pricing subject to change.
Quoted from CGC-Ryan:
Good Afternoon Pinsiders.
We are working hard to get Monster Bash out the door and into your hands, and are very close to its release.
Since somebody decided to share some images from #monster-bash-limited-edition , we decided to show you a sneak preview of the topper.
More details will be coming in the next few weeks.
Keep your eyes open and ears listening as Monster Bash is getting ready to Rock Again. [quoted image]
Bitchin' Topper - very cool sculpt.
Do we have the get the LE to get the topper? or can we order it with the SE?
Quoted from Hazoff:
Wow is that stupid. MB is a fine game but gets boring real fast, not to grown man children who will laugh at the same bad jokes for apparently 7 years. Be aware the jokes are bad and get tedious over time, the game is damn fun but easy and once you have assembled the band a few times it won't last. Rarehero u never disappoint with ur bullshit.
This is damn near trolling - wtf man?
Quoted from cscmtp:
So someone tell me I won't regret buying a SE instead of the LE?? I mean, the topper does look really cool but I'm not a topper guy (in my small collection I only have 1 topper out of 7 pins) I can always get side mirrors and if I felt the need powder coat the hardware right?
Maybe get the SE and then sell the topper if you don't want it - good way to reduce the cost of the LE and get an LE.
Quoted from Doug_Duba:
It is surprisingly difficult to consistently make a specific white with RGB LEDs.
My understanding is that there is no true 'white' pixel in LCD - so they basically blast the blue pixel which gives it almost a white look - known as a cool white. Warm whites are tough as well for sure.
