You think BW is cool until you actually see all that boredom in front of you. It messes with your eyes, the GAP twilight zone looks cool but get in front of it. Sometimes excess is not always a good thing. If its broken up by color ( pops, ramps, targets, lighting ) then it might be fantastic. We will all need to wait.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

I predict the B&W artwork sticks with the LE, not the premium.

That’s what I originally thought it would be. Bummer if true.

#3153 3 years ago
Quoted from Rum-Z:

I'm interested in a premium, but I'm not a fan of black and white. I grew up with a black and white television, and I got news for you... it f*cking sucked. LOL, I'm never going back.

Same here. I want great art with vibrant color and non of that low-res photoshop crap. A B&W limited run premium/LE might make be cool but I think they would loose sells if it was the premium or LE.

#3154 3 years ago

I know TWiP is usually solid, but I can’t picture Stern doing a 100% Black and White Premium. Seems like a strange decision if true. Maybe the cabinet only.

I never thought they'd make beatlewitch in a million years...

Centaur is absolutely stunning, so much so that I've heard countless pinheads call it a work of art. I call it the same. Stern is onto something, and if they do produce it and produce it right, you guys will be drooling. That being said, Stern has an uncanny knack for screwing up great ideas.

#3156 3 years ago
Quoted from epotech:

So 3 separate playfield manufactures required? I know they've signed and recleared le's in the past but that seems like an enourmous outlay.

Seems they’ve changed to just signing the aprons now.

Quoted from epotech:

Back in the day the 1 through 50 LE's were hand signed by Gary and the game dev on the outlanes and then recleared to preserve the signatures. They stopped doing this with GOTG and went to signing the aprons and a signed certificate for all the LE's produced... I have a signed and recleared Tron LE and have to say the playfield is perfect. Almost no dimples compared to my newer Metallica, GOTGLE and IMLE which are dimpled to shit... I would LOVE to see Stern go back to this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#3158 3 years ago

Shiny gold armor (ghrome) is a bigger deal breaker to me by far than black and white. Power coat gold is acceptable though.

#3159 3 years ago
Quoted from John_I:

You are in luck. Plenty of WWE LE gold powdercoated armor left over for the Munsters LE.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Haha. As long as its not that hideous ghrome from the LOTR LE run...

I'm still hoping the previously shown artwork assumed to be the Premium is correct. I like that one a lot. This way I don't have to jump in to get an LE without playing it (may be sold out anyway) and can wait on a run of Premiums a year from now when I am ready to give up one of my other Sterns to help pay the bill!

How do you feel about black with gold flake?

#3163 3 years ago

I'm hearing the lower playfield will be more like Stewie's pinball than ac/dc.

Owned both games, only marginally better.

Agree, I don’t understand, like w/i 5 years or less playfields are really dimpling?!: either wood or clear coat material are to soft.

My 2007 games, my 2011 TFLE, etc no or very very minimal dimples. My GOTGLE, DPLE lots dimples.

I just live with it now (I guess it probably depends on wood, humidity, how quickly they paint and clear them).

Now back to Munsters- let’s make that game engineered hard wood!

#3166 3 years ago

Centaur has a bit of color.

Munsters in b&w are a no for for me too!

#3167 3 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

The B&W casket art originally leaked with “real” shiny brass trim AND brass door would be incredible. Sadly I think the chance of either shiny brass trim or a brass door got lost in the first round of Munsters budget meetings. Gold speckle trim is about all you can hope for.

#3168 3 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

Interesting. Sounds cool, but I would have to see it though.

#3169 3 years ago

... maybe the lower playfield is b&w on one version (LE I hope) and the main playfield is colored on Prem and LE. Stern really has us guessing. Skip the teaser, official highres pics, are expected tomorrow please!

#3170 3 years ago

If the rumour of "There are four flipper buttons on Premium and LE version, with the extra flipper buttons presumably to control lower playfield flippers"

This will be something different and I'll be keen to see how that plays.

The brass looked deadly, but you're probably right

#3172 3 years ago

Why would you need extra flipper buttons to control lower playfield?

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

You wouldn't need this, but Gottlieb did it with their Haunted House pin. I can't believe Stern would do it as it would add 2 more flipper buttons to their BOM.

#3174 3 years ago

All of this stuff really had me scratching my head wondering if i will like the black and white, which model will be black and white etc. Part of me thinks the game should be black and white but then i think to myself that it would probably look like shit but i think the screen animations should definitely be black and white show clips.........all this shit gives me a headache and i wish it would just reveal so that we will all know.

#3175 3 years ago

#3176 3 years ago

Go premium- however b&w might stir things up a bit if on premium!

Don't worry , there will be no B&W Munsters pinball

Happy new year Chicago!
(And all else of you of course.)

Time for our tease...

Let Herman out to play pinball!

Well, if Prem is Black and White... I might be out on this one...Glad I got my Monster Bash LE coming in a few weeks...
My issue is I really don't like the 3 tiered model system. I think if Stern wants to continue with this model. Then let me swap and choose the art packages I want. The Iron Maiden Prem looked good... But, only represented one album era of the band on the cab and translite... And the topper is really cool, but contrasts the Prem art package.
I think as I stated before the art package for Pro was best... But, if you buy a Pro you're missing features and sometimes even modes.
I don't want a Munsters Pro, as I want the full game... But, I cannot afford to buy a freaking LE every single game.
It's really silly and I think its a disservice to the majority of the pinball community.
My reason for not wanting a black and white is it'll get old, and I doubt the playfield will pop. Centaur pops, because it was designed to be in black and white first and foremost, but also the artist used some reds.
What they will be doing for the munsters is taking what was done and meant to be color and converting it to black and white... And that is not how it should be done ever. That is not how they filmed black and white movies, and television shows. They knew what color looked better. Like I believe for the superman black and white serial, they used a brown suit, as it photographed better.
Just a silly rumor for now... But, I hope its not true.

They'd be better off doing color Premiums and then splitting the LEs into a B/W version and a color version, like they did offering 2 LEs on AC/DC with the Let There Be Rock and Back in Black LEs.

LE "Herman" could be color and LE "Grandpa" could be B/W with art changes to match the cabinet themes. Whatever they do, it would be funny if they threw in a Pilot-only Happy version of Eddie grousing and shouting when something bad happens.

Super LE!!!

#3185 3 years ago

I think we all need to stay calm here because we don't know what its going to look like yet. There always seems to be some negativity right before a game releases and then when it does most people are like ....OMG what a beautiful awesome game!!

I have high hopes for this game but like i said, if this game lets me down its ok because Monster Bash SE here i come baby! Im a little worried and concerned about a couple of things i wont lie, but at the same time i get this feeling that people are going to be sh*tting their pants when this thing finally reveals.

#3186 3 years ago

Appears to have more things toys gadgets or whatever you want to call it than Maiden. hope it plays well and wished Maiden as great shooting game it is had more in it besides shots only. Sorry the way I feel need more in Stern games like JJP pins. Stern games great flow (still waiting for a JJP pin to grab me with killer flow) but we are missing stuff and 2019 please add more. It likes the best of both worlds Van Halen song, can’t we get both out of them for price.

Wich is not a hard thing to do since Maidens 4 Flippers seem to be the main attraction BOM-wise.

Wait a minute you mean a company wants to make big money? thats an outrage and some people are getting the best possible version of a pin with a theme they adore? well thats just wrong.

#3192 3 years ago

Where did all this IMDN hate come from recently? Was the darling child for a while.

Oh, sorry, just remembered what forum I’m on.

Personally I think it’s in Sterns top 5 - and that’s some tough competition.

Quoted from Hazoff:

It is if they pull it off. With IMDN premium/LE extras are just a freaking nightmare. Not only did we pay a lot more for not a lot, they don't work right!

They were clearly done to a budget without a doubt and they simply didn't pull it off. I love the game when its working and playing well but running events with an IMDN LE/Premium in the line up is just non-stop moan central with bits of it not working or the captive ball fires preventing folks from getting the super skill shot. its a glorious fail, Stern are aware and haven't done anything about it.

From out of the box my captive balls fired when ever you flipped. Then the shooter lane alignment, and now the mummy capitive ball and sarcophagus are playing up. I'd rather not have had those things and have a game the plays well.

Mine has none of those issues, but doesn’t get a huge amount of play, and not competition. Would be pissed also if I did though.

I am gonna agree with Neil on this one. The Newton balls are absolute pieces of shit and designed very poorly and the Sarcophagus mech is also a very poorly designed piece of shit as well. Like Neil said, if you havent had trouble with the Newton balls and the Mech, you will in time and you are gonna be cussing like a MF’r when it happens. If you gotta mess with the Sarcophagus mech you better be very mechanically minded and good at working on things or you are screwed!
