    Who-dey has talked me into waiting on Munsters to the point now that I am actually beginning to share in his enthusiasm. So maybe Coke can be changed into Pepsi, dogs and cats can live together, and two people who started off at odds can actually find the things we both can agree on. Really wanting to see the LE now.

    Can't wait for the reveal but what sucks after that is we gotta wait to see the Premium and LE after that. This waiting game is pure torture on us Munsters fans!

    #2403 6 days ago

    The pro reveal will speak volumes... but we know there can be huge differences in gameplay between pro and le depending on simple code updates and them figuring out how to use the hardware in different and cool ways as the code matures. I think that is what I am hoping for with the Pro reveal, just what do they do with pro hardware and how it all looks and plays on code rumored to be starting at 1.x. And then we see what hardware they add/change and how the game play changes as you go premium/LE. Should be an interesting 2019.

    Wow just skimmed over the last 6 pages and learned Nothing new about the Munsters pin.

    I'll check back here in another few weeks and waste another 20 mins of my life.

    Anyone want to drink a beer and play some pinball hit me up Geez.

    Quoted from Maken:

    When you are going to own the game for a long time and you are a good player, it's actually one of the most important things to consider.

    Quoted from vireland:

    Because, unlike the 20th century, lots of these are going straight to homes in the 21st century. Shallow games in homes are a death knell for longevity/interest. Exhibit A - Whoa Nelly/Pabst/Beatles.

    Yes there are many games that get old fast FH CFTBL F14 T3 on the other side of the coin Stern dropped code to make the three multi balls easier because no one can finish the jukebox. For the average player the top rated 90s games are a good depth to keep things interesting. Comparing Whoa Nelly Pabst Beatles to today's games is ridiculous

    Well, they were released contemporaneously, so, uh, yeah. Valid to compare their lack of code depth to games that were released literally the same year that are MUCH deeper.

    #2410 5 days ago

    I am thankful Gary Stern was such a greedy capitalist that he saw keeping Stern open and producing pinballs as a way of making a little money with no competition after the initial collapse of the pinball scene in early 2000’s. I seriously expected the whole thing to come crashing down and we would be left with nothing but virtual pinball on video if we had anything at all.

    Well now, some say, pinball is on the rise again... and new competition brings new dynamics into the mix. I am hoping Munsters takes Stern in a more competitive direction with regards to what “Limited Edition” means and they surprise us with something more Boutique in “exclusivity” on the higher end trim level machines, and that the Pro is a fun shooter for the casual player to help keep ops in the money.

    The difference in price between Pro and Premium should be that much $$$ worth of value, and the LE should add another actual $$$ value, not just a $1000 worth of “exclusivity”, what ever that crap word implies. Do not just bolt a bunch of $5.00 action figures to it and charge me $500 bucks for the opportunity. I would rather have $500 worth of code devlopement instead because that improves the fun, the $50 in action figures I can’t play with, not so much.

    Lets go Stern, show us you are the industry leader and not just an industry giant.

    #2411 5 days ago

    For me, the premium will always trump the LE.

    Found some great Munsters quotes and just reading them brought a big smile. I can officially wait no longer. Come on Stern ... quit fooling around and give us the Munsters already!

    Lily Munster: When is that silly bird going to get girls off his mind?
    The Raven: Nevermore, nevermore.

    Lily: Eddie! You better start dawdling, or you're going to be on time for school!

    Grandpa Munster: Hmm. What smells so good?
    Herman Munster: I cut myself shaving.

    Marilyn Munster: What does Ramone look like?
    Lily Munster: He looks a little like Cary Grant, the poor man.

    Lily Munster: Herman tried to build a ship inside a bottle. We had to break the bottle to get him out.

    [repeated line]
    Herman Munster: DARN, DARN, DARN, DARN!

    Lily Munster: Oh, Marilyn... the circles under your eyes. How lovely you look today.

    Marilyn Munster: Uncle Cavanaugh? I didn't know there were any English Munsters.
    Grandpa Munster: Marilyn dear, no matter where you go in the world, you can always dig up one of our relatives.

    Marilyn Munster: My aunt and uncle are out right now, and grandfather is up in the attic.
    Pops Murdock: Oh, eh, working?
    Marilyn Munster: Oh no, he just likes to hang around up there.

    Marilyn Munster: In all the years that we've lived here, I can't recall more than 8 or 9 people ever getting past the front door.
    Grandpa: What would the neigbors say if they saw a bunch of strange looking people living in our home?

    Eddie Munster: Mom, if we do rent the place, can I use some of the money to buy Spot a new toy?
    Lily Munster: Oh Eddie, we gave him a foreign sports car for Christmas, he played with it a couple of times, and then he threw over the back fence.

    Eddie Munster: Hey mom, can I go out and walk around the ledge?
    Lily Munster: Oh no, no, Eddie, you might fall off and hurt somebody.

    Lily Munster: Oh dear, I think he's going to recite!
    Herman Munster: Ibbedy bibbedy, sibbedy sab. Ibbediy bibbedy canal boat. Dictonary down the ferry. Mary, Mary quite contrary. Ehm... Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy lost his hair. Scooba doo and scooba dye. That's chicken's not too young to fry. Live is real, live is ernest. If you're cold, turn up the furnace. Eh, I, I thank you.
    [riotous aplause]
    Man with the beard: Man, that guy is deep!

    Eddie Munster: Wowie, Zombo's the neatest guy. When I grow up, I wanna be just like Zombo.
    Herman Munster: But son, I thought you wanted to be just like me, That's what you always used to say, wasn't it? .
    Eddie Munster: Sure pop, but that was just when I was a dumb kid.

    Grandpa: [to Herman] If Tony Curtis looked like you, there'd be no stopping him.

    The Raven: Eleven O'Clock and all is well... but what do I know?

    Grandpa Munster: [adressing the Cave Girl Robot] Excuse me, my dear, could I interest you in a little bite?
    Herman Munster: Grandpa, she's only a robot. That woman can not talk.
    Grandpa Munster: I know... those are the best kind.

    Marilyn Munster: I don't know why uncle Herman wants to get become mixed up in racing.
    Lily Munster: You know Herman, he always has to be a hero to his son.
    Marilyn Munster: But I didn't know he knew anything about automobiles. He's really full of surprises.
    Lily Munster: Full of surprises? You should have seen his X-rays after his last physical. They're some things in there that the doctor's couldn't figure out at all.

    #2418 5 days ago

    I’m a fan of:

    Eddie: I have to go play with one of the neighbor kids.
    Grandpa: Which one?
    Eddie: I don’t know, I haven’t caught him yet

    Absolutely it counts. Anything that gets you drunk and makes you talk silly about a Munsters pinball machine being released soon counts, because we all know that it really isnt going to happen right?

    Trust that I am Not. Not a bet but I think I was the first deposit on this game Before even the cell pics came out. Just looking at this thread for Months all the I heard from my brothers buddies neighbors friend it will be this week is a bit depressing and has no value for expectations. Seems like a few simply want to feel like "In The Know" spotlight for some false reason. If it came out tomorrow or next year December I will be ready.

    I’ve heard pro production line started For the overseas units. It won’t be long for an announcement now.

    I’m extremely excited for this title and it’s going to sell a hell of a lot of units I’m refraining from posting too much on here cause everybody has eyes everywhere reading stuff .

    I’ve had my LE model order in many months ago. Can’t wait.

    I think that will depend on gameplay more than anything. I just don't see Musters as a super hot license, seeing that the show is ancient. I'm not saying that a healthy group won't jump on it, but I don't see it attracting a crazy amount with the theme; the gameplay will have to be innovative. That being said, I hope it's not Munster Bash and that the gameplay is excellent. I will never buy a NIB Stern again, but the used market will be friendly if a lot of them sell. When's the release date on used sales?

    #2442 2 days ago

    I’m sort of perplexed at the secretive nature concerning title releases among competitors within this industry. I get that you don’t want to announce titles that are a year out... but less than six months? If I thought I had a hot title introducing within a year, I would at least announce it to perhaps divert future sales away from my competitors.
    If Munsters is beginning to roll off the line, show it to all of us... what is there to hide? Promote it for goodness sake!

    You'll want to review industry practices of the past, especially Williams spying on Capcom and copying Pinball Magic with Theatre of Magic. Stern also lifted the mini-screen from JJP DI. They are rather cuthroat about it, hence the secrecy. All's fair in love, war and business.

    Didn't the mini screen in WWE LE come out before JJP DI?

    What’s the question ?

    WOZ 2 LCD
    Hobbit 2 LCD
    DI 3 LCD (first pin with 3)
    POTC 2 LCD

    Quoted from MikeS:

    I don't think the claim is about technology. It's about timing and toys. That being said, I've only "heard" that in the forum, so who knows. The Capcom story is definitely true though.

    Hobbit 2 LCD
    DI 3 LCD (first pin with 3)

    The simple point is that pinball companies are competative and therefore secretive about their releases and products. Remove the LCD claim if it bugs you. You could replace it with Stern not releasing full schematics. The general suspicion is that they think other companies actually want to copy their Spike system.

    #2449 2 days ago

    I guess I get what you are saying but what assets
    can competitors effectively steal and put out first ,within say, three months? If Munsters was truly finalized and just waiting for production to gear up theoretically a month ago, what is the harm in telling / showing us back then? It may have stopped buyers from jumping to another competitor?

    Quoted from Tranquilize:

    Stern also lifted the mini-screen from JJP DI. They are rather cuthroat about it, hence the secrecy. All's fair in love, war and business.

    That's BS.

    Trudeau wanted to put mini LCD screens in Mustang (a game from 2014) under the playfield to show the different cars driving up and sliding to a stop. It was deemed too expensive for multiple mini LCD screens. He had the idea even before WWE.

    However, DI did steal "Mick on a Stick" from Stern's Rolling Stones!
