Super excited about seeing the pin. Not so excited about another dead flip ‘celebrity’ reveal. Wish stern would up their game!

#3302 1 year ago

This thread has sure gone downhill. Imagine what will happen when everyone finds out the Munsters pinball is yet another machine based on the Whoa Nellie layout?

Think I'll go see this pin at CES, just an 8 hour drive

99,9% Off Topic but I somehow imagine you arriving via parachute.
(Shouldn't that be faster? )

#3305 1 year ago

CES is really a terrible event, IMHO. Booth people know nothing (technical, anyway) about the products they represent. Generally speaking, Stern will obviously know everything.

Vegas used to host "Porn World" (sic) at the same time, hum, wonder why that was? It could provide an interesting albeit expensive distraction to the Energizer bunny booth.

Off topic? Isn't Stern showing Munsters there?

Yes, but your parachut likely won’t be there.

WNBJM reveal should have been revealed at porn world!

#3307 1 year ago

$100,000 question.

What will the abbreviation/acronym be for the Munsters machine?

TM ?

I see no other logical choice. Thoughts?

Good thing we are in 'Merica son! Also, no one put the "ko" on the end and misspelled the vulgar Japanese word. Except you.

#3323 1 year ago

Seriously though..... If the premium is all black and white this will be a serious mistake on Sterns part and a total letdown

B&W too on-theme for your taste?

Yep.....So the LE and pro may be color but the Prem is BW. That would be seriously messed up.

Maybe. Never seen it in print. Only heard it in Japan a few times. Once I confused someone saying he wanted to eat noodles with proudly announcing he wanted to eat...something else. Or the time I confused asadachimasu with itadakimasu. That was...interesting. Fortunately it was a casual situation.

How is it people know without seeing it that the B/W version if its a reality won't be great? Might look amazing but I will say one thing it would be wise for Stern to release pictures and if the feedback is purely negative then reconsider as the Pre is that last to be built.

#3333 1 year ago

I'm most interested in the B&W version on how they pull off the lighting. Will it be the same rgb lighting (GI primarily) or will they opt for a more UV treatment? Can't wait to see it either way!

#3334 1 year ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Don’t think anyone is saying it won’t be great, more along the lines of it’s not what they would want.

I was down for a black and white munsters but when that Franchi artwork got leaked that is now what I want, those colours and the art itself was awesome compared to the much more understated b&w artwork that got leaked.

I think both packages looked great, but that b&w artwork needs that gold/brass trim to make it really pop and I can’t see that being put on the premiums.

Very nice!

I can see that she was planning on going to the movies, and choosing to pick her seat early

Pinheads demand 50 year old license based off black and white TV show then worry the art might be black and white.

Sounds par for the course.

Blame Franchi for that, the coloured “premium” artwork that leaked last year was fantastic!

#3338 1 year ago

My biggest fear is they colorize the clips and they look terrible. Stick with B&W for the screen for sure for me.

It not about that Ben. It’s about why in the heck would you make the premium of artwork different after showing it. If it’s just the cab art so be it

Stern hasn't shown any artwork. They haven't even confirmed it is coming yet. We know it is, but Stern hasn't announced. If they announced it would be color, then changed it, that would be an issue. Not the case here.

#3341 1 year ago

We need to see them for sure but color does make them pop.

#3342 1 year ago

Stern customer service just passsed an idea onto Stern sales. If accepted, could this be the great compromise of 2019? All Munsters Premium and LE pins will be sold with b&w playfields and cabinets. Goody bags to include a box of 156 crayons. This will encourage creativity by those wanting color, while simplifying Stern’s process by reducing options. Congrats to all the lucky game buyers. When you buy a premium or better Munsters pinball machine, you’ll finally be able to have it your way. Like the Burger King commercials promised you in the 90’s.

#3343 1 year ago

If anything just the cab will be black and white. I doubt the PF would be.

Calling it now - Herman Munster Sparky Bash Toy.

Anyone got a confirmed price structure from their distributor?

Wrong its 11,22,23. They need to charge tax now...

An LE over here is likely to be 11K-
($15k)

I don't really know the Munsters show but isn't Herman a good guy? Are there any villains or antagonists in the show that would serve as good bash toys or is it more of a sitcom? It doesn't really make sense to bash someone that's a good guy but I guess they did it with Optimus Prime in Transformers so I wouldn't rule it out.

Wasn't he always hitting his head because he was so tall? I don't remember, but you are correct. The Munsters were good people (it was a sitcom). The 'bad' people were really just society that didn't like their 'wierdness'. I don't remember if there was any actual 'nemesis'.
