Going to be another turd like the Munsters.

#1202 67 days ago

Looks like a SM home model..........hopefully its priced like one.

#1203 67 days ago
Quoted from wrb1977:

delt31 we get it...you want a TMNT pin and you are not buying Elvira’s House of Horrors. This is an E3 thread if you haven’t noticed...so go start a TMNT thread about everything you hope to see so that they can make it exactly to your liking.

Agreed - I've gone a little overboard in the wrong thread.... Just keeps on being brought up. Haha

#1204 67 days ago

Price on the LE?

#1205 67 days ago

( . )( . ) Keeping an eye(or two) on this thread.

#1206 67 days ago

Pricing hasn’t been announced. Expect more details next week.

People are getting bent out of shape because of the rumor E3 has a Batman-like pricing model. It appears that E3 has less on the PF than Batman and there is no integrated topper so I don’t think we are going to see LEs at $10k.

Nope.... Munsters is way better.

#1210 67 days ago

This one is a easy no. I’m out

#1211 67 days ago

There’s no way that right hand scoop (or whatever you call it) is going to send the ball across the playfield to load the trunk. That just seems silly - too much room for error.

#1212 67 days ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

Such a small representation of Elvira on the playfield is a bit disappointing.

I agree with this. Was expecting better Elvira images on the playfield. But it is so loaded with various inserts that I am sure Lyman's code for this will be very deep. (And also noted from the playfield that Elvira's measurements are apparently 36-24-36.)

I don't care about powder coated trim or speaker lights or a numbered plaque, so if there is only one playfield version, then the only thing making me want the LE is Elvira pictured on the side of the cabinet versus only bland lettering on the premium. Will have to see if there is any other difference (such as more RGB inserts on the LE than premium). Pricing may force me to go with the bland cab, which would be disappointing. Need to know actual street prices.

Quoted from littlecammi:

A lot, and too much.

#1214 67 days ago

I thought Stern said that with the next few titles we are going to see thinks that have never been done before.

WTF....were they talking about price point

#1215 67 days ago

too expensive for what they offer ...

#1216 67 days ago

I have a feeling this game has a lot more going on then we see with just a playfield pic. I think it's gonna be great! ......maybe not Scared Stiff great....but great!

Scared Stiff gets boring after 30 minutes.

Quoted from hoby1:

I really wanted to like the Munsters, but it just sucks.

#1219 67 days ago
Quoted from kciaccio:

If what I hear about the possible pricing for this pin is true.... Alice Cooper's Nightmare castle is a bargain compared to this thing...

If all you care about is the price then sure. Both have a castle so they’re clearly the same. By that logic data east Jurassic Park is an amazing bargain compared to Stern Jurassic Park.

ACNC is built nice and looks nice, but the shots are so tight as to make it really a struggle to play IMHO. Sometimes I wonder if people actually play the games in their collections.

#1220 67 days ago

If the game isnt fun and is overpriced. All this will do is shoot SS prices even further up

#1221 67 days ago
Quoted from Mrawesome44:

How? The existence of a new Elvira game doesn’t change how many existing SS games there are. Since the pool of collector dollars are finite, at best it would slightly decrease its price as now their are more games chasing the same amount of collectors.

SS prices have dropped bc of this game potentially outdoing it. If this fails SS will rise

Quoted from Lounge:

That was my initial thought too, but with the wide open lower playfield and unusual VUK design I think it’s a possibility. Hard to picture the trajectory of the ball though without it hitting the glass or doing damage.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

Needs more inserts

Needs more ELVIRA!

#1225 67 days ago
Quoted from luckymoey:

That would surely make the bubbling artwork crack.

#1226 67 days ago

My guess is that the crypt will have multiple 3D heads that rotate via a mech inside the crypt and show up to be hit by the ball. I’m guessing the different heads will provide different perks in the code.

#1227 67 days ago

Damn so we all hate this, with occasional sporadic bursts of hope and unabated “SJW” whining?

I’m going back to bed.

Quoted from BertoDRINK1:

But that age group puts more money into location pinball.

Plenty of Gen-X's still pumping money into location. That along with home sales being bigger these days, keeps my point valid.

#1229 67 days ago
Quoted from bemmett:

( . )( . ) Keeping an eye(or two) on this thread.

The game needs a couple of big, beautiful...eyes on the playfield!

#1230 67 days ago

No interactive back box is a huge let down. Yes, I understand it was already done with SS but that’s what makes that game so awesome/different. It didn’t have to be a spider wheel but something that interacts with the game similarly would have been nice. No new innovation and a weak playfield layout is a huge disappointment for me. I’d much rather get an original SS or remake someday.

Unlike SS and EATPM, people need to realize this has a freggin tv screen that I’m sure will make up for the 1-2 more static Elvira’s pics people think are missing on the PF.

Quoted from 0geist0:

I guess that depends of how good of a player you are. I have my SS for over 18 years and I still don't think it's boring.

As far as complexity of rules goes, it seems to me the EHOH game will have more going on than SS.

With pictures of these old monsters on the side, I’d bet they have the rights to show the clips and we will have Batman 66 immersion. I’m excited to see how the mechs work!

I beat Madness on my 3rd game at a local barcade, no thanks

#1236 67 days ago

The red and green text-only cabinet art is pretty hideous. Layout seems fine. Plastic ramps are not cool though. Would also be worried the art style for the LCD will be similar to Aerosmith...

#1237 67 days ago
Quoted from bobukcat:

You just never know what you’ll get out of this crowd. I last checked in here at noon when the photos came out. Figured everybody would be creaming their jeans at the boobs and the big mansion and such.

23 hours later I find everybody hates it.

Also SJW!

So I guess I don’t have this place figured out after all. But I also find I’m less interested than ever in caring.

Anyway go Redskins! Whip them Cowboys!!

So you love what makes the game different, and want the same thing in a new game. Got it.

Action of the game is on the playfield. The spider wheel is just a rip off of the cyclone wheel. EHOH will sell if it’s fun to play.

Yeah, “we want something new and innovative/why isn’t this exactly like some 20 year old game” is always a funny one.

Im hearing $12,500 on the LE’s and $18,500 on the SLE’s.

If that's the case, I have no interest...probably little interest at half that.

No mentions of "not buying because of PF situation with Stern". LOL

It's LYMAN SHEETS, we all know what he does with games and he's got a lot to work with here.

Compare this layout to BM66. That's now a GREAT pin because of Lyman's work.

Not to mention the video assets and integration with Stern have been elevated to another level!

Distributors did not get pricing yet

#1246 67 days ago

I think the playfied looks very interesting and the mansion is badass. I agree, it is a little short on the Elvira artwork on the playfied, but the bigger issue is the terrible color scheme. Too much of a rainbow with all that blue, light purple and pink on the side.

The colors wouldn't stop me from buying it, but it doesn't go with the theme imo. I'm still looking forward to playing this pin and will reserve judgement until I do.

If E3 were a state, fair to say it would be Texas! Game’s gonna rule!

#1248 67 days ago
Quoted from Chalkey:

Geometrically speaking you're going to have a hard time making a not-fan layout in a two flipper game.

..and now you know why people groan when they hear two flipper game

But classically... look at all the playfield variations we had in EMs for decades.... fan layouts aren’t the only thing you see. But when you try to make everything a shot from the flipper... you run into fan centric ideas..

#1249 67 days ago

I see several people on here think it's an empty playfied. I actually thought it looked full and has plenty of things to shoot at.

Yep. One topside photo of pf and the vinegar and salt come out. Gotta love it.

Look forward to seeing in action including those B-movie horror clips.
