Quoted from hank527:

Im in, but Lonnie on code would kill it for me as well.

Lonnie code can be great but the issue is that his games just don't get finished.

KISS and AS particularly.

KISS and AS particularly.

AS was good, but not finished yet. Kiss, TF, TAV all took years to get updates and Kiss is still looming. When Lonnie works with others Ala Mustang, code is fair to good.

I've been burnt too many times by the same crap code from him. I'd have no problem discussing it in person with him either.

I see a trend with him and it needs corrected.

I am excited for Munsters it's not a theme that makes it a instant buy no matter what for me but if done right I would definitely be interested in it and i think the theme is pretty cool.

#54 1 year ago

Munster's with a Addams Family type layout? Lifting staircase with a dragon underneath it like Walking Dead bicycle girl ramp but in the middle?

#55 1 year ago

You've willed another ancient license into pinball existence, Pinside. Way to go?

Now just keep typing Jaws! A theme I'd suspect would be a licensing nightmare, but if they are doing Beatles nothing is impossible!

Definitely think Franchi is going to get the art package on this one.

Yep, I got some good info at TPF that confirms this.

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.

Quoted from indypinhead:

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.

You may see a Black and White Addams Family!

TWD was not a "rut". Phenomenal layout.

9 think that's because he is under immense pressure to deliver quickly. I think Eddy and Elwin free him up to have a nice design window. Borg was given less than 6 months per title and yes stuff got recycled. This is why GOTG is not that good. I have Kiss, AS, and Metallica, the last game I want to add is GOTG.

Twd, Tron, IM and Met are awesome pins. AS is under rated as is Xmen.

Need a shaker motor when Herman is stomping up and down having his hissy fit.

#64 1 year ago

I can't wait to see it. I really wish this was Brian Eddy's new pinball project instead of Borg. However I'm ok with Borg doing it too. Just excited to hear Eddy is back doing a pinball machine.

#65 1 year ago

I'd assume this would be the main music, but time will tell.

#66 1 year ago

Its going to be unusual to see black and white video on the LCD. I wonder if Stern will opt to have the translite black and white too to match?

#67 1 year ago

I am betting the whole game including the LCD animations will be in color. Got to have a game that pops to catch people's attention.

#68 1 year ago

If so, then no video clips from the 2 series since they were both shot in black and white. I think part of the nostalgia and charm would be the TV clips.

Had a few beers with Butch after a toy convention about 20 years ago.....mentioned that he really doesnt remember much from when the show was being made, but for shows and fans, he has his stories.......Super Nice Guy.

#73 1 year ago

I prefer grandpa munster in his later years

#74 1 year ago

Munsters, Alice Cooper Hunted Castle, Elvira 3 and likely Monster Bash Remake? All within the next year pipeline from different companies???

Seems like halloween/monster theme overload if you ask me. Can they all sell in high volume in this current market?

For me, it's a pass on all of them. To each their own though.

#75 1 year ago

To me this game screams toys, scoops, magnets and subways if its done right... which makes me nervous if they will do it right!

TAF wouldnt have as much charm if it werent for the above. A goofy title like munsters need to have more than just 'good flow'. Will be really interested on how they decide to pull this off if they decide to be all cheap bastard on production.

#76 1 year ago

The music / theme never gets old.
Grandpas basement lab, spot as a bash toy,
The house, Eddie looking for wolfie, chase shot.. The car, and Herman himself..!
Ive got Munsters on the Brain.

Never saw these!

WHOA! what the heck was that!!!? A strange alternate colorized pilot intro/episode? and lyrics with the theme song??! Wow! Never saw any of that before either...glad they ditched both of those for the Munsters we always knew!

Strange footage from alternate universe....

"Not much is known about David Derman, aka Happy Derman. His one claim to fame is having played the original Eddie Munster in the unaired test pilot for The Munsters TV-Series, a role which later went to Butch Patrick. Happy starred in few more series after that, but dropped out of acting afterward."

I got Munsters on the brain too Art. This theme has so many cool things that they could do that its insane. I would love to see Lyman on code. If he is this game is going to be a smash hit guaranteed!

Fortunately... (caugh)

Drag-u-la and the Koach are available.

Stern should just ripoff TAF layout and tweak rhe rules for the Munsters. It’s a proven winner.

#82 1 year ago

I’m seriously considering holding off a Ghostbusters Premium purchase to see the finished product of this title. Considering the last couple of games Stern has produced it seems to me this could be a real winner...... hope the cabinet and playfield art is similar to AS/ GB / IM and not SW.

The pilot is on the disc set... After the pilot they switched to B&W. Could see less of the makeup issues and strings/lines for the props in B&W back then...

and if you watch them in order you don'tr hear the trade mark Herman laugh until well into the season. Makes me think they stumbled onto it...

I have my LE on preorder... Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

#85 1 year ago

Put me in on The Munsters. Holding a "Spot" for it. Excited about Munsters !

Also looking forward to Elvira. Then I'll have to find a space for that too...

So there was a different actress in the pilot playing Phoebe who then turned into Lily? Eddie changed after the pilot too and there was a change with Marilyn between season 1 and 2?

I have just learned a lot in this thread

#87 1 year ago

Growing up, the adolescent arguments between my older brother and I went between Ginger or Mary Ann, and my little brother would interrupt and yell. "No, Marilyn is the HOT one!"

Tough choices!

The Munsters is another dream theme for me. A few other dream themes that I have disappointingly passed on are Mustang, WWE, Batman 66 and Aerosmith. Aerosmith is still pending based on code updates. I'm cautiously excited about a Munsters pinball machine.

#89 1 year ago

Personally, I really like monster themed pins.
I love my MB and TAFG; and feel an Elvira 2 and particularly a Munsters would be right down my alley.
I’ve already reached out to my distributor as well to ensure he is aware of my interest on an LE. Maiden LEs were sold out instantly in Canada (via this distributor) which was quite frustrating.
Let’s hope Stern gets the right mix of deep rules (Lyman would be great), unique design and theme integration for the Munsters pin.

Honestly go back and give BM66 a chance, as an LE owner I will be the first to admit the game was a turd upon release and pretty much stated that way for 12 months, I genuinely thought I had lost big on it and regretted the purchase, thankfully Lyman is the coder (one of the BIG reasons I risked the purchase in the place) and has spent the last 6-8 months pumping out code, which he is nowhere near finished yet and I couldn’t be happier the game is a blast and as a fan of the theme the integration of the theme is phenomenal.

If Stern can secure the Munsters licence as well as they did with the BM66 licence and Lyman is on the code and can put the same campy feel into the gameplay, audio visual and rules etc as he has managed with BM66 it will be awesome!

There has gotto be a staircase ramp with a hidden scoop under it though for Herman Multiball not having that mech/toy will be inexcusable, it’s the thing I remember most as a kid from the show.

#91 1 year ago

It would be cool for a staircase/ramp that lifts and you shoot into maybe the pet spot, like the snake in Metallica.

#92 1 year ago

How about this soundtrack in the game?

#93 1 year ago

Really hoping this is the next Stern!

#94 1 year ago

Grew up watching Munster's thanks to the early 90's Nick at Nite. Always enjoyed it much more than Addams. Hope they can really do the theme justice.

#95 1 year ago

Shaker activating when Herman does one of his hissy fit stomps would be a great touch.
Maybe the cabinet and playfield a combo of color and B/W.

#96 1 year ago
Quoted from Macca101010:

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

Doesn't matter. Somebody would still color bomb one with purple and green LESs.

Id love to see the game done in all Black and white!

Then during specific modes, add the green for their faces.....

Red of course too. Eyes, Spots eyes, Car, Wolfy.

Even use EL Panel Art for the faces to color, as you collect the family.
Except Marilyn.....whos always in color! ? !?

So..... has Stern even hinted at doing this title or is this wishful thinking on our part?

It's Borges next and 3 flipper is the current rumor.
