And Shaker timed with each stomp....I like it!

#152 1 year ago
Quoted from scottslash:

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!

Amazing pics! Thank you for sharing.

I used to watch the show with my beloved grandmother. I will probably buy my Pinball in her honor... off course if that’s a good game, and if indeed will be made.

Munsters is a bit of a niche theme here. I have nothing with that show. Give me the muppets instead.

I always preferred the Munsters over Addams Family when I was a kid. It had better characters and writing.

Quoted from John_I:

I respectfully disagree. While I am a fan of the Munsters, I always felt the humor was written more for children, where the Addams had more of an adult comedy feel with some sexual overtones.

#156 1 year ago

I was 4, in 1964 when they both came out.
Munsters was more my age.
Thing scared me after watching Peter Lorre in the Beast with Five Fingers, that same year.
I didnt understand the nuances of The addams family at that age, and saw it later in reruns,

But in 1964...Boris Karloff, Monster Models to build, the Munsters was an interesting mix at that age.

#157 1 year ago

I wasn’t born in 1964, my first exposure to all the great shows from the 60s 70s and 80s wasnt until the 90s but I loved watching all these shows with my dad, it was one of the reasons I got a BM66.

Even though I’m one of the younger pinheads I would still be interested in a Munsters pin especially with Lyman on code, it would look great next to my BM66, but it needs to have a lifting staircase/ramp that’s my one must, it’s the first thing I think of from the show.

Quoted from J85M:

You know it will!!

#159 1 year ago

I just think The Munsters would make a better pinball machine. Lots of cool stuff. Spot the Dragon could come out from under the staircase (ramp), etc. Someone told me that Spot was the T-Rex from the film, The Land Unknown. Now I have to check it out....

Maybe they'll reuse Gene's head as Herman's but the balls shoot out his ears for MB

#163 1 year ago

Here is the dino from Land Unknown. And a shot of Spot. Some of it looks the same especially the teeth.

That dragon in the stairs is to easy to picture as a pinball ramp toy! (LE only

#165 1 year ago

Probably be something like TWD and Bicycle girl on the LE.

It's Borg and he's been known to rehash! Love to see something cool and inventive.

Even though I'm more in the Addams' camp when it comes to my preferred show, I also think there's more to work with in a pin with the Munsters theme. Plus their family car was way cooler and would look great on a playfield.

#167 1 year ago

Id love to see more 3D printed toys, especially on this like the Barris Car.
One could print with all the gears, motion and action as one piece...more affordable today than molded, assembled parts,
and perhaps we can see more animation in the physical sense, with some more printed manufacturing.

#168 1 year ago

It will have all the toys currently available online

Hot Wheels sized 1/64 Munster Koach does exist.

Would be great if the under the stairs dragon would actually blow flame out its nose. The Pinball Amigos could pull it off...cmon Stern!

#171 1 year ago

Flames,lol! You might get red LEDs flashing, but flames, um....no. Borgs a creative guy, I'm sure we'll see something cool!

So does Grandpa Munster's Drag-U-La, which was also very cool. Rob Zombie would probably agree.

They can use the dragstrip toy from W/B's Corvette pinball machine, LOL.

Barris was known for his Cars, and performance on the Gong Show!

Flames are easy! Ever see those lamps with the flames? Just LED's, a fan and red and yellow material. Looks great!!

#177 1 year ago

Yep, I get it, but its not practical in a pinball machine. I hope we see something clever.

Chuck Barris was the TV show producer and Gong Show host.

George Barris did all the cool TV show cars like the Bat-mobile and Munsters, to name a few.

Where's your Stern outpost, the Arctic? That's awfully bright for 12:30am...

And, how bad is the ant problem there? Gary too cheap to get it sprayed every 60 days so you don't need traps everywhere?

At least tell us if it will be a fourth quarter launch....?

Quoted from Budman:

Supposed to be. But wonder how late as Deadpool needs to be released first. It has been pretty quiet on Deadpool so far.

After Deadpool it's the Munsters.

Joe K said their title with Stern will be oct/nov (Expo...). Seems pretty obvious to me that Munsters aligns with Ka-Pow's business... so put those two things together.

#187 1 year ago

Munsters isn't supposed to a Ka-pow title from what information is out there. It is Borg's next game.

#188 1 year ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

Munsters isn't supposed to a Ka-pow title. All Borg.

And Christopher Franchi on the artwork.

Supposedly, the Ka-Pow game sounds like it will be the Beatles.

Kapow doesnt design the games either way. Its a partnership that is more about securing resources and marketing.

For instance... pooling assets

Sure - gottcha. I don't believe though that the Munsters title is part of any Kapow deal.

From what ive heard, it is not a Kapow game.

It’s gotto be right? I mean Munsters is cool and all but no way the licensing costs more than Beatles!

Beatles licensing is notoriously expensive, so Stern are surely going to utilise the SLE model to bump up that profit margin, in their position with these 2 licences who wouldn’t!?

Sure it will be an epic fail like 90% of the other titles.

I'm all in on Munsters, I think it will be a great theme just like TAF. But frankly I'm surprised they aren't going with something far more current and popular like Stranger Things...now there's a theme that's just begging for a pinball machine and it's one of the hottest properties in Hollywood.

Regardless I'll be picking up Elvira AND Munsters, Stern is going to get a bunch of money from me, damn them!
