Quoted from Diospinball:

I think finally the Prem might be the best art package... I do think the LE looks slick and cool though and the handles are a nice touch.

I agree that Prem art package if it turns out to be the production art is fantastic!

But are those really handles on the LE or just part of the artwork? I’ve seen people say they are handles but in the photos they simply look flat/part of the art.

Quoted from Diospinball:

If these turn out to be accurate. I think finally the Prem might be the best art package... I do think the LE looks slick and cool though and the handles are a nice touch. But, I just prefer more color to be honest. Its a pinball, it's meant to pop and perhaps be a little garish. But, the main thing is, I think the Munster Coach picture looks better on the side cab than translite, and I prefer the family portrait to be the translite.

Agree, I would prefer it to pop a bit too.

Also, Not sure where the brass/gold comes in. Has nothing to do with the Munsters... Adam's family maybe due to their gold stash... I think it would have looked really good in silver/platinum due to the show being in B/W... Kinda Silver Screen typish... Just my opinion

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

Eddy has been in the game a long time, plenty of time to think about a new layout. Maybe Eddy already has a layout ready to go?

Would love if Eddy was working on a Godzilla pin...the new Godzilla Monster Island coming out next year would be good, but Godzilla vs. King Kong the following year would be phenomenal...

All 25 pages of this thread are based solely on non released (nor verified) prelim cabinet art images. Anything else is pure speculation so you didn't miss anything. lol

+ .... it is Stern’s next release, unless it isn’t. + ... the game will be revealed in two weeks at Expo, unless it isn’t. But at least he came to the right place. This thread will get the pics first. Standing by Houston.

mnpinball stated lower playfield on the premium/LE but not the pro

Lets see, probably 500 Le units sold. Half go overseas = 250. I would guess at least 50 flippers buying LE's to pump out some change on a quick flip.

I doubt Munsters was popular enough overseas to send half the LEs. I would guess more like 100-150.

Agreed, this is a very USA specific theme. It may be a good game but it is an odd theme.

Based on the art that was leaked (if it turns out to be what’s made it to production) its premium all day for me love that leaked artwork for the premium.

Benny Hill would be too politically incorrect to make now a days.

#1223 1 year ago

Nobody would dare do Hogan’s heroes but could be a interesting play field. Barb wire, tunnels and great show clips on the screen to use.

This theme appeals WAY more to me than some of the other silliness that passes as "wow, original, or whatever"...

Iceman you may have just hit on two great pinball themes in Beverly Hillbillies and Gilligans Island.......

#1226 1 year ago

What's wrong with the theme? Classic monsters, campy old TV show charm, hot rods, and humor. I'm not exactly a fan of the tv show but that doesn't matter. It just sounds like a fun mix of things - kind of like Monster Bash / Batman 66 mashup. I am more excited about this game than some old arena rock band or random Marvel superhero theme.

These shows along with Batman and Munsters were prime time T.V., Back in the 60s.

They were all campy, but they were great entertainment.

Just so long as you don't mean Iron Maiden as an old arena rock band... They're a heavy metal band.... And Iron Maiden is not a band pin, its a monster themed pin. As its themed about Eddie their mascot created by the talented artist Derek Riggs.
But, yes... I think people who don't like the Munsters still should be able to enjoy the pin...
Just hope it shoots great... If its a great shooting pin, I'll definitely have to buy it.

#1231 1 year ago

Off course we don’t know yet how the Pro it will be, and I want to see it first before I place my order, but honestly if the Premium is the one that we have in the pics around.... it looks extremely nice, that purple in the rails, legs and lock bar, the art it looks amazing! I’m in for Premium, that cabinets convinced me and my Family.

I just own 3 Pins and LE, but this Munsters LE.... mmm not 100% convinced don’t know why

#1232 1 year ago

Maybe because there are zero pics of the actual playfield?

#1234 1 year ago

I’m not a big fan of mini lower or upper playfields. So that has me a bit worried about this one (if the rumors are true). But I love this theme, and I’m pretty excited to see what is revealed. Art and toys have potential to be really good.

Rumour is the Pro won’t have the lower/upper playfield.

So using AMD's own 40/40/20 ordering rule more than Aerosmith or B66 and less than Ghostbusters or Star Wars.

In terms of domestic sales alone, not a flop but not earth shattering either.

...I believe in Stern in this one. I was writing about cabinets art, and by the way.... If you want space for another Pin I can help you with the Dracula that I just saw in your profile pics

Ed Robertson bought my Dracula, you'll have to speak with him

#1240 1 year ago

I know you were talking about cabinet art. I just think it's crazy that people would commit to buying a 10kplus game based on some photoshopped stickers....

I hope the game is awesome

Yes, nice photoshopped art + Borg/Franchi/Dwight, enough for some of us.... 15k Canadian maybe, yes that probably will happen until I try one.

We ordered 2 Star Wars L.E. and when we tried the Pro in our distributor place... we canceled both, not our game unfortunately. That can happen too, I don’t have a crystal ball for this one either, but I trust Stern in this one and Borg and Dwight.

Iron Maiden is not a band pin? What the junk are you smoking? Iron Maiden is a band. Heavy metal band is still a band. They fly around on a jumbo jet and play in arenas. They have been around for decades. Stern made more than a few pins of bands like this and they all have a monster/devil/creature thing going on. I get why. Top selling pins are band themes so easy money. I just bet Stern could of sold a lot more Iron Maiden pins if they used a different theme for that layout.

Read what I typed.
I said Iron Maiden really isn't a band themed pin.
It's based around the bands music and mascot.
BUT NOT THE BAND!

And dude... I own EVERY Iron Maiden studio Album. A good chunk of their live albums. A couple of BluRay Dvds, and I bought some VHS back in the day.
I know about Iron Maiden.
I also own all of Bruce's solo work. Chemical Wedding to me is greatest Metal Album ever.
So don't talk to me about Maiden. I've probably seen them, more than most people on this thread.

I said I don't get why people slam this theme. If Munsters is a monster theme... Then so is Iron Maiden.
There is only one guitar reference total in the whole pinball machine.
That is during your combo animations.
DURING AN ANIMATION...
Where are the band members, where are the instruments....
THEY ARE NOT THERE. Because, this is a MONSTER THEME, based around Eddie their mascot, and the modes and artwork based around their songs and album covers. But, NOT THE BAND!

That is what I wrote. Which is why I really don't get why people hate on Iron Maiden. It's a HORROR theme, just like a lot of great pinball machines.
Lastly. Heavy Metal is not the same as Hard Rock... Different genres, different styles of music. I like hard rock, but I prefer Heavy Metal. Big difference is the sonic styles.
Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Scorpions, Motely Crue... Those are Old Arena Rock Bands... Iron Maiden is a Heavy Metal band that played in arenas... But, not an old Arena Rock band... There is a difference.

Sooooo......... the Munsters is next. I have a feeling it may not be announced until after Chicago Pinball Expo.

#1246 1 year ago

How am I insane... I think you all are just hating on Maiden cos you think it makes you cool.
Where is Steve Harris, or Bruce Dickinson... Where are they referenced... Where is Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Yanick Gers, or Nicko Mcbain....
Where are the Basses, Amps, Drums... There are none.

ONE, animation in the WHOLE PIN, and that is the only reference to playing music.
There rest is based on themes from their songs, and from their album and single covers.
The band was always steeped in horror mythology and it is this that Stern based the pinball machine off of. The band got their name from the Roger Corman Vincent Price movie "The Pit and the Pendulum." They just thought Iron Maiden sounded awesome and cool. They weren't wrong.
Not the band. But, their music.
There is a difference and it might seem as if we are arguing over semantics... But, I think its a difference that merits pointing out, and is lost on everyone.
AC DC is a band pin. The band members are on the playfield, and in animations, and depending on what version the translite.
Kiss is also a band pin. An old arena rock band to boot... And the difference between Kiss and Maiden is, Kiss hasn't been relevant since their first reunion tour in the late 90s.
This is not a band pin.
It's an Iron Maiden themed pin yes... But, not of the band. Its based around Eddie and their songs.
