Quoted from Who-Dey:

Im pretty sure the Pro model is the only model that isn't going to have the lower playfield. I also want a Premium with this game here but like you im not a fan of lower playfields so i don't know what im going to do.

Similar feelings. Pro is usually the way I go but I just might pop on Premium. I have really liked all the Pro models I have bought. They suit me well.

Cool Clock.

#1804 1 year ago
Quoted from Budman:

I talk to a lot of companies and they ALL are experiencing the same worker attitude and unfilled job positions you describe.

I hate to say it because it pisses people off, but these younger generations just dont want to work anymore. Im not talking about everyone of course but alot of them are just lazy as hell. I know alot of young guys that work hard also but i know alot more that wont hit a lick.

My company is telling all the employees to try snd find people who want a job here and to have them fill out an application. I honestly can't find anybody because everyone i know says they wont work like i do. Man i wish that i had that option to be that way. Its awfully cold here in Ohio right now though and i really like to eat so i guess i better keep on working because being hungry and homeless would suck. My old hound dog loves to eat also so i gotta keep plugging away for him as well. I worry about him more than i do myself honestly lol.

I love that clock. They have a really cool Munsters lamp also.

#1806 1 year ago

I know a second generation , specialized roofing company that will be closing soon as they can’t find qualified workers..... the owner said heck with it; I’m done!

#1807 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

This place just had 20 people set to interview and only 8 of them showed up. One guy walked out of the interview when he found out it was shift work, 5 failed their drug test so we got two new employees out of 20 lol. Also only about half the people that they hire will stay once they hire in. I've never seen the job market as good as it is right now. There's something wrong when you cant find young guys to work for 60-100K a year.

It's everywhere, sadly.."work ethic" is something very few are willing to get wrapped around, or even understand, regardless of what the $$$ is.

We have an onboarding rate of about 1 in 11 applicants, then half of those don't last a year. A different world, indeed....

Munsters announcement before turkey day!!! (please)

#1808 1 year ago

Check out this Munsters lamp. Make sure you look at all of the pictures. Man $200.00 dollars though.

Is it a cuckoo clock? Looks pretty cool

It says every hour it plays the Munsters theme song and the lights flicker.

#1811 1 year ago
Quoted from crlush:

It is, and lights up!!! looks amazing.....appears to be my first mod before I even have the pin (not the first time)....

#1812 1 year ago
Quoted from crlush:

It is to "Look" like a cuckoo clock. You can not pull the chains and they do not wind down. It is battery operated...more like a music box / light show.
Very detailed and keeps excellent time . volume nob and test button. Do not ever move the hands. standard battery clock movement dial 3 AA"s , also if I recall 2 double D's for the lights. Had mine for a couple years, love it.

#1813 1 year ago

I want the clock and the lamp both so bad i cant stand it. Why did i have to see this? WHY....WHY...WHYYYYYY???

#1814 1 year ago

No shit. What's a millennials dream job? Being paid to listen to their favorite music.

Would like to see if so.

Because you must!!! (I have no table in the room for the lamp...yet)...

Side - decided to look up definition of "cuckoo clock", as no pin pics to stare at yet (I collect watches, and was curious).....

"A cuckoo clock is a clock with a door from which a toy cuckoo comes out and makes noises like a cuckoo every hour or half hour." (Collins English)

I don't want that....want a Munsters "Kooky" clock....

My grandma many years ago gave me an original cuckoo clock with the bird that pops out and then a lady came out and she spins around while it plays music and for the life of me i dont know what i did with it. Im thinking i might have given that to my uncle but i need to find out because that was really special and would be worth good money right now i bet.

Also my uncle used to collect watches but i dont think hes into it anymore and it seems like i remember him saying that he might sell some of them? I know he had some really nice ones so if you would be interested let me know and i will ask him about it.

None at all that i am aware of. There were the leaked photos of the cabinet but i assume that you already saw those probably right?

#1822 1 year ago

Wish i had some playfield pics for you but i dont. All i know is the premium /LE is supposed to have a lower playfield and the Pro does not. All rumors of course.

wow!!!..my grandpa had a cool one where the bird came out, and some sort of carousel that spun w it....was amazing, but long gone now....grabbing that Munsters version now....too tempting

I've had to curb my watch pursuits as of late...talk about crazy $$$! I've got a nice selection, but thanks for the offer....

Unless a Munsters watch appears....

#1824 1 year ago

Just saw they added another car....or I missed it before.

Yes that is the same clock that i had and it had the big long chains with the pinecone weights that made it run, it was awesome. I like that Munsters lamp just as much as i like the clock. Neither are worth their asking price but they are so awesome that i may get them anyways.

Truth

Posted this recently on Aussie Arcade.
Apologies to jam up Munsters thread.
We need something to watch while we wait

#1827 1 year ago

Seen on my recent trip to the Banning pinball ORGY

A bar actually built for Millennials: The "ME" bar. You go into this public place to be by yourself.

Or with others and ignore everyone you're with to be elsewhere on your smartphone. Pathetic but true...

This is an amazing extemporaneous dissertation. Amen Bro

The Munsters pinball pails with respect to this. I'm not sorry for distracting this thread. Thanks for sharing this link, I shall share it far beyond this forum.

Back to canned laughter "Opioid for the Masses"

#1830 1 year ago

I hope Dwight codes this, like Lyman’s is doing with Batman 66. Having the episodes with the show.

If Borg does his magic on the playfield. This will be an epic pin.

#1831 1 year ago

6 months later... still speculating

#1832 1 year ago

We interviewed Butch Patrick earlier today for our weekly horror podcast (The Swearwolves). It’s (the interview) about 15 minutes long.

Amongst other things, we asked him about the pin. He told us stuff.

The episode will be released 11/26 at 12am ET.

I absolutely love Bradford Exchange clocks, I bought one about 2 years ago and was so torn between Munsters and Disney Halloween clock. I ended up buying Disney Halloween but am tempted to still order The Munsters one too.

#1837 1 year ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

We have to wait a week for this podcast?

Not at all! We've got 11 other episodes you can check out in the meantime, brother!

Seriously though, the reason for the delay is that we release new episodes at midnight every Monday, and we already had the one that came out today 100% edited, mixed, mastered, and ready for human consumption on the off-chance that Butch canceled or the interview fell through.

Episode 12 (11/26) is about horror TV shows, so it made sense to save the Butch Patrick interview for that one. I cut it in and made some final edits for time purposes (not to Butch's interview - that's 100% uncut) late last night. I gave the whole thing a listen this morning, and it's good to go for next week.

For those who plan to tune in just for the pinball segment, the interview starts at about the 10:40 mark, and the pinball part starts at about 18:55 (and runs just under 2 minutes).

BUT... if you dig all things horror, please consider checking out our show. We have a lot of fun doing it - and while we mostly talk movies - we touch on lots of other stuff, too: like video games, pinball, music, conventions, etc. We are a bit potty-mouthed... just putting that out there.

*edit: oh, and I should also mention that all three of us on the podcast are Pinsiders. There's me, bretbmf, and ajnada.

Quoted from Pinhead1982:

There is no upper playfield,I was assured of that as I'm looking at Munsters as my first nib purchase and I'm not a fan of upper or lower playfields so a pro will be my choice. I didn't ask any other questions except the additional playfields and how many flippers it had.

#1847 1 year ago

Pro for me as well..... Pro’s and LE’s are the first to get shipped?
