Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

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! ? !?

... but which Marilyn though? Beverley Owen or Pat Priest?

Quoted from hank527:

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

Ala Tron...

Quoted from fuseholder:

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

Or like Iron Maiden and replace the middle ramp with a staircase. Can't wait to hear that ROAR when you hit that shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quoted from FLpinball:

Really hoping this is the next Stern!

Its not the next game unfortunately. Deadpool is supposedly next.

#105 1 year ago

Don't forget about a "phone booth coffin" toy as well.

#106 1 year ago
Quoted from Macca101010:

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

Like Centaur, that's a great idea.

Hopefully no Herman on a spring bash toy.

Wrong guy on the second link Lloyd. That guy would have been about thirty years old when the Munsters pilot was filmed.

I don't doubt you. They come up as the same person quite often.

Maybe to obscure to keep them apart ?

To confuse things even more, a couple of sites list his real name as Nate Derman.

Definitely a Munsters Pinball should be in black & white... and everything in it.

Quoted from iceman44:

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.

People here have criticized Lonnie for code, but the most recent TWD update came out more than 3 years after the machine was released...

Either way, it's a theme that longs for JJP... Stern will just screw it up.

Quoted from drsfmd:

1. What does that have to do with Lonnie?
2. The code that "made it great/saved it" I believe came out 1 year after release...which seems standard for him.

Point being that it's not fair to bash Lonnie when Lyman is still making substantial changes to code 3 years after a game was released.

Frankly, Stern shouldn't be releasing *any* game with incomplete code. Code updates should be reserved for bugs, not features.

Go buy a JJP game then and leave this thread to people who like Stern Pinball and The Munsters please.

Dont feed the Trolls guys for real because its just going to derail this thread.

#118 1 year ago

So if this is Borgs new game, could it possibly be the EXPO reveal?

Quoted from Who-Dey:

So it's trolling to state that games should be released with completed code? Got it. Enjoy your Kool Aid... you've been conditioned to find it acceptable no matter how bad it tastes.

Some of us happen to like games that come out with incomplete code. It is like tasting a fine red wine before it matures. If you do not like the wine, spit it out and try another one. Complaining will not make the wine taste any better! All the games get finished eventually. Avengers was a Lonnie game and the final code for it did not come out for 3 years either.

This is tough for me big time. I dont think i really want a all black and white pinball machine for sure, but i also cant imagine The Munsters being anything other than black and white. Whatever it is, i can't wait to see it. I am so excited about this games possibilities!

Lyman's code ultimately made TWD awesome, but he as a track record of super-polishing code over time, while Lonnie has a reputation for mediocre "good enough" software that doesn't get much (any, sometimes) attention from him after release.

Quoted from Ballypin:

You KNOW they will use the wrong Marilyn. Beverly vs Pat Priest.

Beverley Owen's was only on like 10 or so episodes. So I think they would use Pat Priest, back in the day "wow" but
not a TPF looker anymore, but as we age, who is?

#124 1 year ago

They could use both from the series, they look similar and quick clips nobody would know the difference.

Quoted from Rascal_H:

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

thats what i was thinking,its like TAF part 2

#127 1 year ago

The Munsters series had a better vibe IMO .... funny/ goofy as opposed to TAF that was a little bizarre and dark.

Quoted from Budman:

Even though I was super young when I was first introduced to both of these shows on re-runs I have revisited them during my teenage and adult years, the shows being different is what made them both so unique and ultimately made for great viewing.

Too many shows these days are the same and simply re-skinned or remade, from the shows my dad showed me from the 60s and 70s they even the ones that where similar had very different feels, love them both!

#129 1 year ago

Hmm?

#131 1 year ago

I watched the Hell out of this show as a kid. Not sure I'd buy a pin, but if the layout is cool and heavy on toys I might consider it.
Great music and great humor. 2 things very important to pinball.
Even if people didn't know the theme, they could look at it as an unlicensed theme! LOL Who doesn't like haunted house/campy horror?

#132 1 year ago

I was waiting/hoping someone would post that pic of Ms De Carlo. She was a hottie for sure.

And remember, yes, the series was in B&W, but the 1966 film was in color. I don't think a B&W pin would work for me.

#133 1 year ago

Yawn...Zero interest in this theme. The show hasn't been in syndication since the 80's; no one under the age of 30 knows what the Munsters are...Is there a new movie or re-branded show coming out?

#134 1 year ago

Perhaps the video clips from the show might be just the right amount of B/W the game needs

Most people under 30 can’t/won’t buy a pinball machine. Get it?

If you have no interest in this theme then why on earth are you here?

Yeah it's a photoshop job, but probably not far off the truth.

Yup, probably photoshopped but still looks killer.......

#143 1 year ago

If they don’t incorporate the Munster Coach car as a working toy somehow, it will be the single most purchased mod for that game. AND it should be very high quality as it really is the signature thing that ID’s that show. They could also place the mansion on the game ala MMadness. Fun to come up with all of these ideas. They need all of us as consultants!

Here's a couple photos taken 1966 at Universal Studios. One is the "house" (just a facade). The other is the set of Grandpa's lab with a dummy Herman on the table! That's me in the foreground at 6 years old! My favorite show at the time. Would I be interested in a Munsters pin? Hmmmmm we'll see. Regardless, Universal Studios has sure changed a LOT over the last 50+ years, but I still enjoy it and still remember this trip!

Munsters was a TAF later spinoff! George Barrett did the munster Mobile,I think! saw it at the Oakland custom Car show!I'm with the iceman44,Beatles for me! My new Houdini will keep me happy till then

#147 1 year ago

Gee,that photo looks just like the "chamber of horrors" at madam Tousades wax museum on the warf in San Fransisco:)mmmmm

Uh, sorry. Both aired their first episode in September of 1964. Just days apart even. Both had their place & appeal.

Hm indeed. Made me pause... I mean, I was only 6! BUT I don't remember going to the wax museum (unlike all the other locations we visited), and we have NO photos from the wax museum at all.

#150 1 year ago

just thinking of cool mode, how about Herman is mad and as he stomps up and down like he did a lot on the show while having a fit, there is a shaker motor and magnets that send the ball in different directions, maybe a multi-ball mode?
