Quoted from mnpinball:

LE is full color.

There you go!

End of discussion for me

#3502 1 year ago
Quoted from J85M:

Not if the rumours that there is a B&W version are true, it’s already an asset they have created, they will have stock already and the line will already have both versions planned for builds.
Just add an extra LE to the mix, which wouldn’t be a first for Stern adding an additional release to a title it happened with TWD when they added the Prem after the demand for the LE was so great.

They order stock based on expected numbers... having stock doesn't mean excess.

Two... what you see as easy... stern and distributors see as a big expensive box they need to move...(sell)

If they have a coloured model planned and a B&W model planned, they can order more of those assets if needed, that was my point, not that they have excess.

Besides Stern have done it before multiple times, adding a model for Stern is child’s play, it’s why they rule they rule the market.

2 more days ?

I grew up with Munsters black and white, just like I love Lucy. When I actually saw for the first time a color shot of a green Herman or a red headed Lucy I just about gagged. It looked awful. So why would any of you want a colored Munsters game? It makes no sense to me. I don't get all the love for Franci's colored Munsters artwork. It looks like an unlicensed knockoff of the real Herman anyway. He just doesn't capture the nuances of Herman quite right.

#3507 1 year ago

I'm glad this pin will be available with different art packages. There will be something for everyone. Any game with 4 flipper buttons is sure to please.

#3508 1 year ago

Easy solution: release a color version and a black and white version for all trim levels. That way you don’t alienate a potential buyer and give everyone the option to pick their color option. I personally haven’t seen the final art package yet, but definitely looking forward to the reveal.

Simply because the color artwork looks stunning. Why would anyone want a black and white hdtv?

That'll never happen - too much inventory to manage. But I really think an AC/DC LE-type split (LTBR / BiBLE) with a Herman LE in color and a Grandpa LE in B/W is the best way to go. I can't believe they'd do all the Premium playfields in B/W because it will turn a LOT of buyers off.

Quoted from MapleSyrup:

Tell yourself the truth... the real reason you’re “Out”, is that you were never buying it in the first place!!

Insulting and disrespectful to the members of pinside. Lots of NIB buyers on here.

Quoted from Maken:

Yea...just an ignorant statement....

On a positive note, hoping for a reveal in under 48 hours..whatever the hell it is...

#3513 1 year ago
Quoted from Maken:

That was the intention!! Haha.

Yes, there are LOTS of NIB buyers here, and there is an overwhelming negative chorus who just shit on everything, no matter what.

I’ve said it MANY times... I simply don’t get it. If you hate modern Sterns... why spend so much time in these threads?!

I personally LOVE these machines. I also love Early SS games, and a lot of EMs.

If I don’t like a game... I spend exactly ZERO time talking about it.

I’m very excited for Munsters. Can’t wait to see it in person, and flip it.

If somebody ISN’T interested in this release... what the hell are they doing here?!

I Know, I know. It’s a forum... people can say what they want. I GET that. I just don’t get why people focus on things they don’t like, instead of things they do.

Tuesday will come, and so will all the same reactions. I know I’m an idiot for wishing it was any different... or a glutton for punishment!

Bring on another new pin! I can’t wait to check it out!

#3514 1 year ago

What distributor usually gets the largest allotment of Sterns??

Quoted from MK6PIN:

I feel terrible for insulting the collective wisdom of this hallowed ground.

Dude, give it a frikkin rest.

I am many things... but “Ignorant” isn’t one of them!

I just get tired of the relentless stream of “Reasons” why the latest thing I’m actually excited about has fallen short for people... before they’ve laid eyes on it, and WAY before they’ve flipped it.

Happy Flipping everybody. I can’t wait to see Munsters in person!

Some people need to get a life! If they can't, they spend their time trying to spoil everyone else's life.

Munsters Stream Reveal Tonight?
Sure sounds like it to me!!
Jack Danger is the Man!!

#3519 1 year ago

I'll place my Crazy request vote and with this solution I would buy Any of the models. Munsters All color only the small Underplayfield and everything below is All in black and white like looking into an old TV. I would be sold!

Forgotten, moving on! I assume that was a football reference... sorry, I’m a hockey guy!

Hatchet buried. Sorry for the squabble everybody!

Back to Munsters. Oh ya... there’s no information yet!

I personally hope the Premium is the B&W. That would be my choice, and I don’t need it to be limited.

Plus, as somebody mentioned, Stern could always do a colour Premium release later.

I love that Idea!!!
I'll repeat it.
Lower playfield is old school B&W.

#3522 1 year ago

I love healthy debate, probably more than Pinball. The reason I love talking about Pinball on this forum is that I can find contrasting opinions to my own and people that see things the way I do. Am I going to buy muns? After my IMLE, not a chance. Do I have opinions on perceived value? Yes. Do I love the idea of a b&w pf? Yes! Should anyone criticize others for enjoying healthy debate? I think not. Just bring critical.

I’m not sure what the issue is. If you want black and white get the premium, if
You want color you have a choose of pro or LE.

Again... stern is not a build to order setup. When you offer variations... that creates fragmentation in supply and inventory. Stern and distributors risk getting stuck with games and parts that have already been paid for... but unsold.

So we are looking at 11pm east coast ???

Yes - custom machines / made to order is not happening at Stern Pinball.

Done - Could a Mod changed it to a CLB?

This thread is too long already. Start a new official Munster club thread once the game is released. There is nothing in this thread that is at all meaningful after tomorrow to new owners.

We have never converted a hype thread to a club thread for a game previously (as they are two fundamentally different types of threads and club threads have special rules). The OP has made the request, but someone already (rather prematurely and with no effort put into it...) created a club thread for this game a couple weeks ago.

What sort of effort does it take to form a good club?

Dunno, more than what this gentlemen did though, I don’t even think he’s getting the game...it was kind of just a “well heck, let’s have a club thread”:
