Found this exclusive pic of the main bash toys Stern designed for Munsters. I don’t much care for them since their arms don’t move

Don’t worry they are adding springs as we speak!

Quoted from scottslash:

What I hate: The word "flipper" can refer to both the mechanical bats that make pinball so awesome... AND the money-grubbing douchebags who care nothing for the hobby!

I hear ya! Let’s start referring to these persons for what they really are “ scalper scum”.
Some are even vocal opinionated posters here on pinside. then you see their eBay listing for maiden LE on eBay for the bargain price of $12999. They should be publicly shamed for the disservice they do. A fair markup is one thing but 13k is F’n rediculous!
On this note what are distro’s quoting on the LE. I’m almost afraid to know. Or is it deposit only till stern announces the next price increase due to the scalpers pricing that they track here and on eBay? Anyone who thinks Gary doesn’t have one of His minions track this info as a part of their job has dain bramage.

#805 3 years ago

Slightly off topic but as far as scalpers go I remember going to quite a few concerts in the mid/ late eighties and we’d hear someone walk by the car while we tailgated asking if anyone had extra tickets and how there was a scalper near the gate asking crazy money for a ticket. A few times we saw groups of 4-6 big dudes respond to this by saying we’ll get rid of them. They never roughed them up or anything but we saw them act like they were going to and chase the guys a couple blocks away and it was nothing short of hilarious! They be yelling “get outa here scalper scum” as the chase ensued !!

It’s unfortunate that there seems to be no end to machine price increases due to this happening which is very unfortunate.

There will be no Funko's on Munsters

Borg is a man of good taste

He will go next level on this one

Isn't there an easy answer to LE "hoarding" if that's actually going on still? Just wait a month or two and you can pick up a 100 play machine (or maybe even NIB) for less than retail.

#808 3 years ago

I love the LE speculation....
Who said it was limited to 500 machines?
About 3 weeks ago a good friend had just been to factory. Although I can't confirm it, only what was told to me. I was told the LE's will be set at 1000.

That's crazy. Iron Maiden has WAY more appeal globally, and they wouldn't even go to 666 (which they would have sold). I can't imagine they'll do 1000 on Munsters. Worldwide demand isn't there.

#810 3 years ago

I don't see the Munsters LE being more than 500 either.

#811 3 years ago

To sum up this thread.....
Borg on design...Dwight on code...Franchi on art....BOOM!!

Quoted from mnpinball:

Yep the pro and premium will be drastically different
This will be the haunted house mansion 1313 Mockingbird Lane under glass

I hear ya. Supposedly, Gary said there was no reason to go 1000. Weather they do it or not is yet to be seen. I doght it. Will know in 5 weeks.

A good friend of mine was at the factory last week, and he said Baffle Ball will be the next VE.

I still don't get why they didn't do 666 for maiden. Such a wasted opportunity.

KISS hung around for a long time in stock, WWE LE is STILL overflowing warehouses, and they were afraid of another like that, but given the huge overseas interest in Iron Maiden, anyone with even a passing knowledge knew that they could EASILY sell 666 and it actually made SENSE.

Well... could you imagine how cool it would be to get teh 666th one... That be one that people would probably just be looking to flip for money sadly...

And I get it, Sterns reticence. I do... Pinball sales are up finally, but they still pale to what they were in the past.
Only reason there is a thriving pinball industry right now is the insane prices for new pinball machines. Which is a catch 22. As the insane prices make it profitable for the company, but it prevents younger people from getting into the hobby by pricing them out. Which in the long term is bad for the hobby.
I'm not bemoaning the costs of new pins. Just my observation. And again nothing against new pins... With a little bit of luck I might be able to get Munsters NIB at the tail end of their production run. That is provided its both a good playing and good looking game.
I want both Lilly and Marilyn on playfield look glamorous and gorgeous.

I guarantee that if they had done 666 LEs, the 666 one would have gone to the band. But then at least all the LEs could have had "xxx/666 LIMITED EDITION" on each collector plate. "xxx/500" is SUCH a missed opportunity.

Quoted from PinMonk:

Yeah, and the band might give it away or raffle it for charity. If Clive Burr was still alive that would make a great auction item for his charity that they set up.
So, I think it would only be a matter of time till it got in private hands.

Having the 666th one would be cool, but it was more about getting 666 on every collector plate because there WAS 666. Stern blew it when this pin was clearly a home run and could support 666 no problem.

Ahh cool glad we are back on track with Munsters talk Doug.

Fingers crossed its a cracker, just freed up a pin for it, so it better be.

You'll have a BM66, GOTG and Munsters next to teacher other you Franchi lover

#826 3 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Sanity prevails.

Make sense to have all LE's capped at 500

It is a really good move by Stern to acknowledge the collector market

500 is the magic number.

Agree with sentiment on Maiden, but that's done now.

I can still see the odd 50-80 SLE runs sneaking in on certain titles, Beatles being one of them.

I'm in for Munsters, hoping for a hybrid cross of Addams family and monster bash.

I'm hoping for something new from Borg with the three levels of Haunted house.

#829 3 years ago

To be honest I just hope it isn't a reused layout with new code. Praying for some black and white either on playfield, cabinet, or display. Or maybe some on all of the above.

Will the 500 LE’s sell out in advance of them being built???

#832 3 years ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

I think so... Considering Stern typically does a run of pro's before the LE's... Call and place your order. I LOVE the Munsters so this was a must have theme for me. He-Man would probably be the only other sight unseen theme I would purchase at this point...

#833 3 years ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Technically all LE's are "Sold Out" before being made. Stern sell to distributors. Stern Requires the Distributors to order the LE's. Its up to the distributors to sell all of their stock of LE's.

My good friend and artist Shad Nowicki always seems to know what new Stern releases are coming up, uncanny. His latest original painting: (STANDARD version, LE available at Shad's website.

You can see a bit of the knob for the shooter on the left side of the Premium pic. All three were clearly part of the same picture that was cut up. For some reason Kaneda didn't have the juice to get a Pro picture for his leak. His reputation is clearly overblown.

Quoted from PinMonk:

Borg has the same problem with layouts for the last 10 years. In a serious rut. Hopefully Elwin's freshness embarrassed him into doing something actually new.

Yep. Borg has been using the same or a mirrored layout for 10 years. Lame.

However, comments about "his next"/Munsters make me hopeful Elwin inspired him to put some effort into it.

Hahaha! Not on purpose. I answered a notification that I was quoted and I replied to that. I thought that pinsider sounded awfully rational and level-headed, but I was in the middle of a project and just quick-answered without looking too closely. I wonder why I'd get a notification about my own post?

But you're welcome for the entertainment. Remember to tip your waitress on the way out. I'll be here all week...
