    With the speculation of Munsters coming, just wondered what peoples thoughts were.
    Are you looking forward to it, have you heard any news on it, do you know who's involved, do you think it will be a Kapow with Premiums, LE's and SLE's?
    I'm looking at getting one so am excited. Hoping it's a Franchi, Borg and Sheats pin but who knows.

    I guess the biggest news so far was this:

    I don't know any special info about it, but I'm definitely looking forward to a Munsters pin (and Elvira if it's still happening). ACNC is getting my money in the short term. IMDN is on my radar, but if Munsters is out by the time I'm willing to put more funds into pinball, I wouldn't be surprised if I go that route instead. However, Fall Out Boy may have tainted the theme music for me a bit...sigh.

    If its built with quality and real artwork yes, but thats not the direction Sterns heading.I know I will get the thumbs down but my new AFMLE and DI limited are beautifully made,I dont like stuff done on the cheap.

    #4 4 months ago

    I watched the show as a kid and liked it, even though it was way before my time, but the theme does nothing for me in the pinball realm. I am way more excited for Monster Bash.

    #5 4 months ago

    Built with quality from stern, don’t count on it

    #6 4 months ago

    I sure hope so! I would love to see Brian Eddy do it. Have spot come out of the staircase breathing fire! Maybe have an under playfield sorta like Haunted House for Grandpas lab! They need to do it right though. Use the second seasons theme the one with the electric guitar!

    #7 4 months ago

    Phone booth toy, stairway with spot, grandpa's lab entrance. It should be a easy theme to make fun. Needs to be funny. No dimples needed but splitting cab may fit theme.

    #8 4 months ago

    The other question mark is 'would it be in color or Black and White'?

    Hey Macca,

    I think we are in on a LE. I think it is Borg and hopefully Lyman. New game design with new mechs. We have a space ready!

    your topic heading makes it sound like a fact, not another speculation thread.

    #12 4 months ago

    Great theme!!! It's a smorgasbord of ideas. Grampa's lab is almost a theme all by itself.

    #13 4 months ago

    Great theme. Grew up watching Munsters and Batman 66.
    Hopefully Stern can really do it justice with the layout. They have nailed the graphics and sound lately with IMDN and AS.
    If they nail it, I’m in on an LE.

    #14 4 months ago

    I think the Munsters would be a great pin, if made by JJP and not Stern. I'd like to see CGC come out w/ a remake of TAF, based after the TV show...all black and white artwork, similar to the B&W TZ that's been posted here on pinside.

    Awesome theme, no brainer. It's Borg and hopefully his TWD sidekick Lyman on code. My biggest fear and probably a no go would be Lonnie on the code. I'd just have to wait for Beatles.

    I'm already on the list for an LE! (Well i carried over my deposit from SW)

    #16 4 months ago

    Sign me up for an LE. Great theme!

    Quoted from Macca101010:

    do you think it will be a Kapow with Premiums, LE's and SLE's?

    If it’s happening Munsters will likely be a cornerstone title Pro, Prem & LE, with the SLE saved for Beatles, after all Beatles licensing is known to be notoriously expensive and those SLEs make up a big slice of the profit pie!

    #18 4 months ago

    LEs have been requested from my distro, what a great theme this can be. I wouldn't mind seeing The Munsters into screen start with black and white when slowly change to colour.

    Catchy tune, fun for everyone how could it not be. Yes Mr Sheats we allow you to work on this release.

    #19 4 months ago

    Theme does nothing for me but if it has good code, gameplay, features, lighting and art if be interested of course

    #20 4 months ago

    I watched The Munsters pretty relentlessly as a kid but it doesnt excite me as a theme. It's not a turn off, just doesn't move the needle on theme alone.

    I am going to contact my distro and put our name down today! We sold a machine over the week end so we have a space. Lonnie on code will probably kill the game for us too.

    Wow! I am a bit slow on this one. I put our name on the list today.

    #23 4 months ago

    It's definitely a good theme. Best TV theme song ever. You know there has to be a raising staircase ramp.

    This just makes me wonder how Stern is ever going to make all of the games that are rumors at this point? Seriously, even if some of the games are "boutique", there are still too many. Something has to give. Maybe the Munsters will be made and SM78 won't? Maybe The Beatles isn't for a couple of years? What happened to Jurassic World? Deadpool? Elvira? BK3000?

    #24 4 months ago

    Should be the next release.

    I don't think that will be Steve Ritchie's unlicensed theme.

    #25 4 months ago

    Definitely think Franchi is going to get the art package on this one. He's currently pimping the Munsters Moebius kits on his FB page showcasing his artwork. If nothing else the machine will look amazing.

    As long as we get the senior discount

    #29 4 months ago

    I heard the Munsters are huge in South America

    #30 4 months ago

    I watched oddball episodes here and there probably close to 20 years ago when it was re-running on TV Land, and thought it was funny back then.

    I finally watched the whole series a year or two ago on netflix. It's not a top sitcom by today's standards, but it's still amusing after all these years.

    Would it make a good pin? Eh, *maybe*, but I would think there are probably better and more current licenses that could be done instead.

    How sweet would an all black and while LE model be?

    Munsters is Fact, no speculation. 4th 1/4 this year. Too many eyes reading pinside, can't comment further.

    Let's get Deadpool out of the gate first ehh.

    #33 4 months ago

    Really anticipating this title- fun, campy theme with lots pf potential.
    Gotta hope they get full access to the show clips.
    A great time to be in this hobby.

    Makes sense. Lasted as long on tv as TAF. Potential reboot in the works too so the timing makes sense. Could be fun if there was a raising stairs ramp and a sub playfield for the dungeon.

    #35 4 months ago

    . . . or the Monster Squad?

    #36 4 months ago

    How many monster shows were there? I can’t tell Munsters apart from Addams Family so I hope they’re the same game.

    An announcement of a possible new reboot last year:

    http://deadline.com/2017/08/the-munsters-reboot-nbc-jill-kargman-seth-meyers-1202146048/

    It was also rebooted once before in 2012 as a single pilot/special:

    Better have a staircase ramp with a dragon underneath, (spot).

    More incentive to get Monster Bash on the market earlier than later?

    Apparently Borg wanted to do a Munsters SLE to pack more stuff into the game but not happening.

    Agree that Beatles HAS to be the SLE title.

    Munsters was down for TPF 19 but link has now been removed. Think that was on TWIP.

    #45 4 months ago

    This is a dream theme for me. Please do not eff this up Stern! This needs to be a Borg/Lyman game BAD!!!

    Does a lot people outside the usa ever seen this tv show?
    I had no idea what munsters was... not sure if this theme will be a hit outside the usa :-/
