This will be remade. Regardless, if it happens in March or whenever. The demand and rarity are there. However, if you think this will be 7999 with color or prices comparable to AFMr. Think again. This has a bill of material if not equal or slightly more than Medieval Madness. Also unlike the previous two titles and Cactus Canyon or Capcom games, Planetary has to negotiate licensing. I’m certain it’s not Uber expensive, but they are not going to eat all of the extra money it will take to get this to market at or below AFMr.

I think it will be closer to MMr rather than AFMr. CGC is not interested in competing with Stern. Stern is more worried about losing more of the top end market sales of the SE\LE to CGC.

Quoted from kermit24:

$7999 is MMR not AFMr. I bet they get that price point for the standard. And they need be sub $8k to sell in volume and not just steal away sales from original MB.

The standards made and sold have been lower than expected. This is from both MMr and AFMr. From what I’ve heard (rumors) most of the builds and sales have been into the special and limited editions of the remakes. I was explained, the color remade dmd of both to the topper of AFMr has really helped push those over standard editions. It will be amazing to see redone dots on MBr.

Quoted from spfxted:

I have been through this a few times. You have to secure licensing if the monster characters have the LIKENESS of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, etc. MANY companies make Frankenstein, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, etc stuff without looking exactly like the actors.
PS: Monster Bash monsters do not look like the actors....

Yeah Ted you’re right they don’t look anything like the Universal monsters. However on the apron on the DMD and a couple other places it says Universal monsters. They’re going to want a small fee for that. Planetary pinball and Chicago gaming is not gonna eat that cost they’re going to pass it down to the consumer.
