Quoted from MikeS:

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.

He's a good guy, but misunderstood by the majority of the public that comes in contact with him. That works in the context of a bash toy.

In Transformers you can at least play Decepticon side...

Since Munsters is Borg wich did GotG where you shoot Rocket Raccoon and Groot it doesn't Matter for him who you're shooting.

Groot is a good guy.

It'll probably be like you're "charging him up" for a multiball. Like he's enjoying it.

"Dumb dumb" shots work. Makes it perfectly obvious what player should shoot for.

#3355 10 months ago
Quoted from PinsOnly:

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

I hope the screen does have color, but for the clips of the show, definitely keep in black and white

#3356 10 months ago

It would also be great if they included probably the most famous character of the series (that is of course not part of the Munsters family) Zombo!!!!!

Quoted from Pinhead1982:

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

Take DP pricing add £500

And at those prices, one would have to be boredline stupid to buy one, comes a point where we have to just stop buying in the U.K. as we are getting fleeced more than any other country and we continue to act like it’s ok.

I don’t know how you guys do it or why?

I don't know...I kinda like Paul Reed in the fregosi emerald. (he really played a great mad scientist). Also,that emerald could could be used in a lot of creative ways.
Magnets comes to mind.

Not much better here in Canada with our Peso like dollar and uber high taxes. Is the VAT of 20% on top or included? At least if it's included in prices , here you have to add 13% whenever you buy stuff, except for Gas and Booze as they hide all the taxes so you don't see how bad you are being ripped off.

Took the family to London last year. Man was it expensive. Converting from Can to GBP was brutal. Going for a small lunch was well over $100 Can.

I just can't justify buying NiB here.

That would put a pro at £7000. If so i wont buy. I'd probably buy used imdn or bm66

Is anyone other than me starting to lose interest because this game is taking so damn long to be announced?

Nah.....I think they said Tuesday...only a few more days.

#3371 10 months ago

If the premium is b&w I'm probably out, as I prefer color and won't pay LE prices. In that case, the only way I'd be in is if the lower playfield is not great, then I'd spring for the pro. I hope it's wrong but TWIP seems to have some pretty solid info sources.

#3372 10 months ago

Stern will be setting up their booth all weekend..... a leaked photo just might happen.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

I’m second guessing my gut reaction from nine months back. Initially thought Munsters to be 3 levels, consensus says 2 playfields now. Wanted the ladies in artwork to be wearing lingerie, but don’t think that will happen. Hoped for some ramps, but jury is out on that feature. Want Stern to make b&w version for cabinet, playfield and monitor - many combinations of b&w components are being rumored so who knows. Want to see a lot of the show - jury is still out on expected lcd content.

Have dialed back my hype meter from the red zone, past orange and firmly into green territory. All the discussion of possibly owing taxes on this nib have turned my stomach sour at the moment. Waiting on Stern to show their cards on the 8th and hoping for anonymous leaks prior.

Quoted from Sinestro:

We are over 3,300 posts on this thread and no official announcement yet. I cannot remember a thread so active before this one. Maybe GB announcement in 2016?

I'm still excited to see this game but im kind of getting burned out from all the hoping and waiting. Its getting tiresome at this point and they just need to reveal the damn thing. The hype is fun but you can only keep it high for so long if you know what i mean.

#3376 10 months ago

I know what you mean..... I’m worn out and thinking more about BM66

#3377 10 months ago
Quoted from Budman:

Well its gonna be revealed very soon looks like so hang in there and wait! I honestly believe that Munsters will be better than BM66 design wise..code wise could be a different story though.

I'm not in the know here. Who's making that? I love both the Elvira pins.

Stern. Dennis Nordman designed, like the first two. Him and Cassandra Peterson announced it at TPF in 2017. George Gomez confirmed it would be made at TPF 2018.

I’m in for both as well! Too long of searching for a nice EATPM I’m all in for a new Elvira no leaked pix of it either

I'm sure there were leaked pic already. But no one is sharing them out side their inter circle.

I'm feeling the same way. I was super psyched last summer reading posts of everyone's excitement for Munsters, but at this point it may be difficult for this pin to live up to all the hype we've created in our own minds.

Still want one, though.

#3391 10 months ago

Well, remember all of the waiting and the hype for MMr ..... it lived up to it !

#3392 10 months ago

I'm theorizing that all of the Munsters machines have been built and warehoused with the glass off for the past year so they can be shipped with authentic cobwebs between the playfield parts.

Believe and want are two different things.

The Munsters will be worth the wait. It’ll be an incredible pin!

Great theme, designer and artist. Come on Dwight, give us a great code.

Well the reason i believe that is because Borg is a great designer and he makes awesome games. BM66 was "The" #1 dream theme for me but i honestly just dont like the playfield design much. I tried to love it because i wanted one because of the theme but the game just doesnt do much for me. Its beautiful and has good code now but i still dont like it enough to buy one.

Have you played BM66 on the latest code? It’s beyond good, if your a fan of the 60s show it’s Lymans best coded game, the theme integration is unmatched.

In typical Gomez fashion you have to tweak the game and dial it in, specifically the left orbit but once you get it setup just right it’s great.

At release it was a steaming pile of shit but it’s now the No.1 game in my collection.
