Mentioned in the AFM Owners page but figured this needs its own topic.

Per CGC Facebook Page...

Like a fine wine, a pinball is not done till it’s done. We have elected to delay the introduction of Pinball #3. Originally we were scheduled to introduce our next pin at the Texas Pinball Festival in Dallas, Texas on March 16-18th. Additional features are being added while deploying some newer technologies. While we know this will disappoint a few people, we are confident that once they see the final product that they will be blown away. Chicago Gaming will still be present at the Texas Pinball Festival regardless. More information on PIN # 3 in the weeks to come.

I am one of the few that is disappointed for sure! Hope we see it soon!

#13 1 year ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

But getting MMr might be the best choice anyway. I don’t have as much interest in the other titles.

Not a bad plan. I am sure you will love MMr as much as we do. Color upgrade is a MUST have!

#27 1 year ago
Quoted from Nepi23:

It might be CCr, but hard to think that the delay would be because of the code. Surely they could have launched it with some prelimilary continued code and later on fixed it with newer version.

I'm not so sure CGC would do this and risk taking the heat other companies have by doing it.

1 month later
#399 1 year ago

I think everyone is waiting for the official announcement. Hard to imagine at this point that its not going to be MBr. Even know it's not a title I plan on getting I can't wait to see what they have come up with.

1 month later
#545 1 year ago

It's crazy that it's now been 89 days since we first learned of the delay!

#629 1 year ago

I think CCr with finished / expanded software would do quite well.

1 week later
#670 1 year ago

At this point it's almost like they ran into licensing issues and moved on to another non licensed title till it's resolved. All I know for sure is that the wait is driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!

#788 1 year ago

This was from a show guide a few years ago.

We should have started a contest on who could pick the closest date. If everyone who posted in this thread played and kicked in $35 for guess we would have enough for the winner to get the game!

#942 1 year ago
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

I have an unconfirmed rumor by legitimate sources that we'll hear something by the end of this week.

Fingers crossed!

#995 1 year ago

I had high hopes that we would hear this week. The wait continues.....

#1022 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballpal:

It looks like it has a white round plunger did CC ship with a white round plunger?

Shipped with a round silver plunger.

#1038 1 year ago

I'm still holding out hope that CC is next. I realize the chance of that is low to none.

#1058 1 year ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Licensing approval.....can only mean one thing! MONSTER BASH!!!!!

Not necessarily. They have to deliver a game to Scientific also.

#1065 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Well check out their UL listing...

4616 W 19Th St
Cicero, IL 60804-2502 USA

Pinball Machine, Model(s) 11000 ("Medieval Madness"), 11000-LE ("Medieval Madness"), 12000-CE ("Attack From Mars"), 12000-LE ("Attack From Mars"), 12000-SE ("Attack From Mars"), 13000-CE ("Monster Bash"), 13000-LE ("Monster Bash"), 13000-SE ("Monster Bash")

Video games, Model(s) 10101 ("Nicktoons Nitro"), 10600 ("GalacTix")

Collector's Edition Monster Bash people???

We have a winner!

Looks like with AFMr we will see Classic, Special and Limited Edition versions.

#1073 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

I think CE could mean Classic Edition.

it does in the AFM line so probably the same here.

#1080 1 year ago
Quoted from bladerunner:

I certainly did not see the MB mentioned on my search. Was it taken off that fast?


Back to square one

#1119 1 year ago

Title changed

#1123 1 year ago

Hopefully they will be shipping these soon!

#1136 1 year ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

I heard same pricing as afm

Let's hope! I cant wait to see the pics and info on what they added.

#1150 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

I hope so as this will be a huge step fwd for future remakes

I agree. Updated code would be a game changer and likely help sell more units. Fingers crossed.

#1159 1 year ago
Quoted from Kkuoppamaki:

they did mention that they just received the UL/CE approval and that same process delayed MMR by several months

Hopefully they remember this at game #4 time

#1168 1 year ago

To hopefully see the game and get details on what they have added. Bring it on CGC!

#1177 1 year ago

I am hoping we see pics this week.

#1185 1 year ago
Quoted from OnTheSnap:

think the main deciding factor for me will be the “2018 code mode”.

I agree 100% This will make it a MUST buy for me also! Come on CGC, we are chomping at the bit here!

#1187 1 year ago
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

What if Lyman did some moonlighting to add new code... "Sheats's Treats"

That would be AWESOME!

#1201 1 year ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:


This is taking forever and a day! Come on CGC. We need pics!

#1230 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballer73:

this chinese water torture has to end sometime.

Let's hope so. I keep thinking it HAS to be this week for the past few and then nothing. Fingers crossed that we see this soon.

#1237 1 year ago

From what I understand, the game needs to get the green light from Scientific Games. The same was the case with MMr and AFMr.

#1263 1 year ago

Another week and no MBr pics. Sigh.

2 weeks later
#1351 11 months ago
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!

#1354 11 months ago
Quoted from Blakester:

Doug gave us a tour of the production process which made it evident why their quality rocks.

Didn't Doug move over to Stern?

#1356 11 months ago

That makes sense. Thanks

#1378 11 months ago
Quoted from tmntrule999:

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.

#1388 11 months ago
Quoted from Goronic:

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?

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.

#1394 11 months ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

ARMRLE has very little if any factory protection...

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

1 week later
#1469 11 months ago

It is now September, I wonder if this is the month we will finally see the game?

#1481 11 months ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

Doug Skor (when he was still working for CGC) said that remake #3 would be revealed at TPF. Here is his post,

I was just searching for this post. Thanks for finding it.

#1492 11 months ago
Quoted from RA77:

Oktoberfest may be shown before MBr

I was thinking the same thing. Pretty crazy as AP had to actually design the game and not just remake it.

#1496 11 months ago
Quoted from hoby1:

Honesty....... I have lost so much interest in this now as I have owned one before for many years.

I am in the exact same boat. I have been thinking of revisiting the title but with so much on the horizon I'm now rethinking this. No question this delay has cost CGC. With the rumor of new code floating around the delay made sense. With that shot down, I can't imagine why this is over six months delayed.

#1504 11 months ago
Quoted from musketd:

Another week and nothing from CGC
What’s going on with bash and this rate we won’t see it till next year

This is getting crazy.

#1558 11 months ago
Quoted from hoby1:

Im still waiting for CGC to make the saucer mod for AFMR classic like they said they would........ Aaaaaaaah.

Me too! I am also waiting for the larger display upgrade for MMr. .

#1562 11 months ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

So first Doug Skor left the company, and now Ashley. That, plus the 6 month delay, seems strange to me

This can't be good news. I wonder who is driving the bus over at CGC now. I wonder if we will ever find out what has caused this huge delay?

#1568 11 months ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

I know nothing about licensing but I agree. It’s a remake of a small market niche product so it’s hard to believe it would take weeks to months to get approval. If that’s the case something is wrong.

“Yep, looks and plays like the original. Approved

Exactly. If the game has no new code or animations and is pretty much identical to the original then why would approval take this long?

#1578 11 months ago
Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Well I have pushed of any purchases until this has been officially released.

I think a lot of us have. There's been a lot of games released since this was originally going to be shown at TPF. This delay has to had to have cost CGC some sales in the short term at least.

#1599 11 months ago
Quoted from Pinzap:

Approximately 40 new posts in the last 10-12 hours... I thought some news about the release had broke.

My guess is there will be a lot more then 40 post once this hits. Lots of us chopping a bit.

#1623 11 months ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Was hoping for some Friday good news with pics and details etc.....

You and all of us. Another week and still no MBr.

#1685 10 months ago
Quoted from Graysonsdad:

I'm assuming the one playfield extra I can see is on all models though

From what I've heard the "playfield extra" is on the SE and LE. I agree, the SE model will be the sweet spot. The topper is not even close to the level of AFM LE. I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of unhappy people as CGC said this would blow our socks off and that doesn't seem like it will be the case. I wonder if there was something else planned and for whatever reason had to be removed. Either way, shiny new MBs will be available at some point and that's great.

#1696 10 months ago

Only delay is CGC releasing MB!

#1744 10 months ago
Quoted from RA77:

I could not wait any longer,

Had to go and buy this

Just think of all the mods you can make!

#1765 10 months ago

I wonder if October is the month we will finally see the game?

#1771 10 months ago
Quoted from NPO:

and the line for #4 will start the day MBr is released.

The day after this is announced will be the day that "What is GCG game #4 going to be" thread is started.

Early front runner will be CC!

#1811 10 months ago

The topper doesn't move but has a cool light show. The CGC logo on screen is the same one that's used on the MMr test machine with the big display. CGC can't use the WMS logo. As mentioned above this is changeable in AFMr so probably the same here.

#1816 10 months ago
Quoted from RA77:

Survive the MBr mini storm CGC and make your next remake amazing

I think the price point on this is going to be critical. There is so much out and coming that has captured everyone's interest. The NIB market hasn't been this crowded in decades and the race for those dollars is on.

#1830 10 months ago
Quoted from GravitaR:

If pics are in fact real.

The pics are real. Hopefully CGC will be posting high res pics on their website soon. One thing I wish they did was a mini plasma ball vs. the disk.

#1833 10 months ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Nope just some piss poor grainy photos ruining our ability for future beta tests

I'm really surprised that CGC allowed pictures to be taken during the testing.

#1846 10 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

get your cc ready”, and “the LEs will sell out” BS hype was nauseating already. Let the buyers decide what the value is now without fluff and false hype

I think the SE will be the one to get as it will have the benefit of the larger display. If pricing is similar to AFM it's a $700 up charge over the classic. Really it's more like $300 as CGC charges $400 for the color upgrade (if wanted).

#1850 10 months ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

CGC said they were raising the bar on MBr to the same degree they did going from MMr to AFMr. After seeing these photos and hearing Yelobird’s impressions I don’t see it, especially after such a long delay. This is the problem when you overpromise.

It really feels like they had something else planned and for whatever reason had to be pulled. We will likely never know.

#1852 10 months ago

One thing is for sure, there's a Monster smack down in our future. In one corner we have MBr and in the other, The Munsters.

Ding Ding Ding.

#1856 10 months ago
Quoted from Duvall:

You can still have an official 'reveal' but I do not get the NDAs and all the hush-hush.

Especially considering its a game we all have played! It was no secret that it would have a large display and topper. I think part of the reason that the topper is getting a blah reception is GCG knocked it out of the park on the AFM one.

#1861 10 months ago
Quoted from Join_The_Cirqus:

Mabye ASOA was right and another version of the software was supposed to happen ( as they would need to also update software on Cactus Canyon)

It does have that feeling. I can't image that license issues would have held this up six months.

#1866 10 months ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

Afmr brought killer saucer light show, shaker,

I wonder if this will have a shaker. I'm guessing it will as MMr and AFMr do.

#1869 10 months ago
Quoted from Pinbaltz:

They mentioned "new technology", but I'm not seeing any new technology in the pictures.

Great point. I totally forgot they had mentioned this.

#1880 10 months ago
Quoted from Pinbaltz:

Also, my understanding is that they don't currently have much of a software team

Correct. The high res color dot work was farmed out. At least on MMr and AFMr it was.

#1883 10 months ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

Graphics and code are not the same thing.

Very true. Was the emulation done in house?

#1892 10 months ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Wow, people really testing out their NDA's here.....Bad Idea

True but it's also creating a ton of buzz for CGC. That can't be all bad in this crowded NIB market

#1900 10 months ago
Quoted from Graysonsdad:


Do they actually? Like the stern games with lcds? Bummer. I was unaware of this. I suffer from bad first ball reset syndrome sometimes

Yes. However , once ball 2 is served you can hold the start button for a few seconds and it will start a new game.

#1922 10 months ago
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.

Thanks for posting! As, you can see, we are pretty excited to see the game!

#1949 10 months ago
Quoted from PiperPinball:

This was my old topper we made for my old MB

That looks crazy cool! Nice job.

#1993 10 months ago
Quoted from BoJo:

I was expecting painted figures on the LE as well considering they painted the saucers on AFMLE

They are also painted on SE. It would have been cool but also a lot more complicated. The AFM saucers are just hit with a basic spray paint. Imagine the hold up if they decide to paint the monsters!

#1998 10 months ago
Quoted from Ballypinball:

Only the special and le

I was wondering about this. Figured it would as AFMr and MMr do (or can be added). Hopefully we will see this pretty soon.

#2000 10 months ago
Quoted from pinsanity:

MB will be softer than MM/AFM remake demand locally given the above pricing rationale (circa 13k?) coupled with the lack of added value bang for buck this time around

The increased completion will likely not help sales too. I think they would have sold more if it came out in March like originally planned. I'm sure it will still do well

#2002 10 months ago
Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Well I'm comitted. Wifeput potch on JJP POTC. Keeping with original plan MBRLE

Congrats! It's a fun game for sure. This *MIGHT* be the week we hear more details on the game.

#2005 10 months ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Are you trying to trick us!


Nah. A buddy of mine talked to a dealer last week and he mentioned that he hoped to have pricing this week. I also remain skeptical but hopeful.

#2011 10 months ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

Exhaled yesterday.

Holding my breath again.

Well, word has it that the game may be at the Pin a Go Go show today in California. I wouldn't suggest holding your breath though.

#2013 10 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

I later heard that it was "something else" from Planetary Pinball, but that makes no sense...

Game #4!!!!!!!!!

#2020 10 months ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

The something else is probably the big screen for MMr

I didn't even think about that. That would be very cool. Kinda perplexing why this has taken so long.

#2043 10 months ago
Quoted from Eryeal:

Honestly I think it all depends on what their actually cost is to build a game at this point, and unfortunately, I doubt we'll ever know that answer. If they can start to build these remakes relatively cheap and can lower their prices

The big unknown is what the costs are for royalties to PPS and Scientific. Doing a new title certainly won't be cheap. I think we will see CCr before any new title.

#2047 10 months ago
Quoted from ausretrogamer:

More MBR paraphernalia from York Arcade & Pinball event. Photo taken by our good friend Nintendork9 (Twitter)

It should read......

Get yours and start jamming sometime in 2020!

#2051 10 months ago
Quoted from HOOKED:

Are the prices staying the same or is there a bump?
Had not heard anything in a while.

Last I heard they were hoping to keep them in line with AFMr but nothing concrete.

#2054 10 months ago

Anyone care to guess if MBr will actually be at Expo?

#2064 10 months ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

The delay is getting to the odd area now. ...delay moving into prolonged territory with no explanation or comments

Now that Expo has started, if game is going to be shown we should see it tomorrow or Friday.

#2066 10 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

But really we kinda know what to expect, right? It’s the same game, with new topper

Absolutely. Price is pretty much all that's left still unclear. That and when they will start shipping.

Weird. It is still loading for me.

#2091 10 months ago
Quoted from rad:

loaded for me too. Thanks for posting.

Was happy to find it! This looks great and more stuff on this then we heard about! AWESOME job CGC!!!

#2103 10 months ago
Quoted from greenhorn1:

I assume the plasma disc is LE only even though under the description it says LE and SE

It's wrong on the grid. Will be on SE

#2122 10 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

That plasma disc is just a $5 LED toy with an upgraded detailed ring to enhance the effect.

Would have been way cooler if it was a mini globe. Overall they did an AWESOME job though and I cant wait to see one in person!

#2137 10 months ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

this is not an "official" announcement. This was a "leak" found from a clever person sniffing around the website.

Thanks but it was beyond easy to find. I figured I try replacing Medieval with Monster and Madness with Bash and see if I would get lucky. Jackpot! Actually, Super Jackpot!

#2140 10 months ago

Thanks! I was super surprised when it loaded.

#2141 10 months ago
Quoted from vex:

My question is will there be a second set of rules for a secondary game within this game.

Nope. Original Code.

#2145 10 months ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

and that plasma thingy.

You get that on the SE as well.

#2146 10 months ago
Quoted from Goronic:

How much is that...extra coin?

If it follows the AFM pricing, an LE would be $700 more then the SE

#2153 10 months ago
Quoted from RobF:

Not according to the feature matrix.

In the descriptions above the matrix it says SE and LE

#2196 10 months ago

Looks the the LE gets 2 plasmas disks and the SE gets one.

#2202 10 months ago
Quoted from evh347:

No, those are side mirrors on the LE. It’s a reflection

Heh. Yup, your right. Was hard to see on phone

#2205 10 months ago
Quoted from RobF:

It looks like the description is incorrect. The SE in the picture does not have it.

Yup, you are right. Bummer

#2277 10 months ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

I wasn't aware of this...sounds like an anomaly?

Supposedly they had extras from Vacation America and somehow they got mixed in.

#2279 10 months ago
Quoted from Damonator:

So 6500/7300/8000 + shipping for the 3 trims?

We will know for sure tonight.

#2299 10 months ago
Quoted from zpinman370:

just jumping in on this post- have they given details on what the differences are between the models??

Full details here: https://www.chicago-gaming.com/coinop/monster-bash

#2309 10 months ago
Quoted from Ray_Ayala:

“The pricing is $7999 LE, $7299 SE, and an incredible $5999 for a CE (base level) Game.

That's awesome.

#2316 10 months ago
Quoted from Pimp77:

Did the rumor of new rules come to fruition?


#2346 10 months ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

What’s the pricing?

$6000, $7300 and $8000

#2417 10 months ago
Quoted from NPO:

So for $6400, you get the game NIB with upgraded graphics on a "regular sized" DMD? Am I tracking correctly?

Yup. That's correct and a heck of a value. There was a lot of talk early on that this would be more then AFM due to BOM and Universal licensing, nice to see that's not the case.

#2438 10 months ago
Quoted from Vongoosewink:

I wonder if the MMr could be upgraded with the bigger LCD screen? It would be awesome if it could, and nice to make all the games match in a row.

Yes. It's in the works.

#2441 10 months ago
Quoted from Vongoosewink:

That is fantastic news!

Quoted from PtownPin:

great upgrade for the MMR

It's definitely cool. I bet it's not going to be cheap. A nice side bonus is better speakers. The stock MMr speakers are awful.

#2473 10 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

. I wld be more worried about the scoop as it takes a beating ...did they add a mantis style protector like on afmr?

They added more of a Clifty type one.

#2476 10 months ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

Any other protectors on the game?

Not sure. Here's the scoop one.

mb-popper-blue (resized).png
#2478 10 months ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

JJP on DI tried to make their own protectors and they sucked

Agreed. Good news is, this would do the trick till a real Clifty can be fitted.

#2483 10 months ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Wonder what that thing is. Is it a security dongle

It's a security PIC. The code is already in games

#2520 10 months ago

The AFM price drop is only on the CE. As pointed out above, PinballSRAR has new price up. CGC mentioned at show that MM will remain $8k

#2524 10 months ago
Quoted from Aurich:

The new CE price is much better, the old one was just dumb once you added the color upgrade, it was too close to the next level


#2525 10 months ago
Quoted from JJHLH:

Wow, that’s very surprising. I wonder if Rick knows they are selling them for $499 less than he is. Interesting, to say the least.

They just haven't updated the site yet. The $6k price will be for all dealers

#2534 10 months ago
Quoted from Fizz:

I wonder how big of a difference in sound quality there is between the classic and the SE/LE? Has anyone done a direct comparison of the two sound systems on AFMr?

That's a great question. I also wonder how difficult it would be to add an amp to the CE.

What is under the hood?

Check the topic gallery.

Quoted from kermit24:

I wouldn't be surprised AT ALL if they slowed the Munsters reveal to let the MBr hype train cool a bit so they could have the spotlight to themselves. Perfect time to tease Beatles instead

I was thinking the same thing. Especially when the CE is priced close to a pro now.

Quoted from Ray_Ayala:

Nope. I wouldn’t think that was ever a part a purchasing a NIB machine in the past.

My MMr and AFMr didn't have them in the box. I did get them from my dealer though.

#2868 9 months ago
Quoted from Vino:

So can someone confirm, if classic doesn’t have RGB lighting does it simlly have standard cool/ warm white LEDs?

CE does not have RGB GI lighting. If MB is like MM and AFM the LED's will be warm white.

Quoted from sublime90803:

For me I prefer the warm richness of the classic editions white lights. They look like AFMr.

You are not alone in this.

Quoted from Damien:

Are the lights on the classic still surface mounted SMD?

And does the upgraded chip change the classic dots to colour, or does it upgrade to the new redrawn graphics?

Insets are SMD, GI are bulbs like in the other remakes. The chip upgrade gets both color and higher def dots

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Then they are smd too.

Right. But the GI ones are in a bulb package

#2884 9 months ago
Quoted from Damien:

I wonder how the new graphics will look on the small display.

The graphics on AFMr CE look great. Same with MMr.

#2886 9 months ago
Quoted from Damien:

Yes, but MMR are not as redrawn as MBr. They were aslight upgrade, where MBr looks like a total overhaul.

ATHYRIO redid the graphics on all three.

Quoted from mcbPalisade:

Does the AFMLE come with that cool topper:

Yup and the only way you can get it.

#2933 9 months ago

The LE also has an additional board in the head that controls the lighting and movement of topper

#2956 9 months ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

The GI on the SE/LE is RGB LEDs, and plain soft white LED’s in CE. Some don't like the unicorn poop GI, some like it.

I'm not a fan of colored GI so I thought I wouldn't like this. I was surprised at how good they pulled this off when I played the remakes at Free Play Florida this past weekend. The colored GI didn't make it look puked out at all. All three models looked great.

#2961 9 months ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

They will be available for awhile, but not necessarily in the trim color you want.

I thought that MBr LE only comes in one trim color.

#2968 9 months ago
Quoted from Doug_Duba:

Should anyone prefer white GIs to the RGB GIs, there is a software setting in both MBr LE and SE that allows the owner to set the GIs to be a constant white.

Very cool!

#2973 9 months ago
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?

I don't think you will regret it. The SE looked awesome at Free Play Florida this weekend.

Can you update us on the larger screen upgrade for MMr ?

#2994 9 months ago
Quoted from Parzival:

Yes, please take my money for this!!!!

There seems to be a bunch of us interested in getting this. I'm also interested in the LED mini saucer upgrade that Doug Skor said was a possibility a year ago.

#2996 9 months ago
Quoted from Parzival:

I'd love a CGC custom topper for my MMr LE too!

A large exploding castle would be crazy cool!

#2998 9 months ago
Quoted from mcbPalisade:

Get the one out of MMr

an even bigger one would be cool! CGC definitely should add an upgraded store to website. Lots they can do given the quality of what we've seen them add to the remakes so far.

#3001 9 months ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

I don't believe CGC is technically allowed to sell anything directly. If a new screen is coming out, it would most likely have to be purchased through planetary or possibly from your local distributors (that have to buy from planetary).

That would work. Put them on your site and I'm on my way!

Quoted from LTG:

ColorDMD is not programmed the same and won't work.

LTG : )

But you can get a chip that will upgrade a classic to color for $399
