Quoted from Bublehead:

Any guesses on how many posts we see on here between now and the reveal? I think if we try REAL hard, we can get another 1k in before any useful pics or vids get posted. Right now we are at a post a minute I think...

Pics will be rolling in soon!

Quoted from robotron:

b and w premium sucks!

I think it's awesome they're taking an artistic "risk" here. If you don't like the B&W Premium, guess what, you're actually not obligated to buy one! And you know once all LE's are shipped, they'll release a color Premium or maybe Vault one down the road.

I personally hope the B&W PF looks as nice as the cabinet and then a lot of people buy it... and then because all the anti-B&W people won't ever own one, that I can scoop up a B&W Premium on the cheapy in the 2nd hand market.

Exactly.

More choice is better.

Everyone used to complain about cookie cutter art and now there is a chance for something unique.

As ever though, does depend on execution.

Marketing thoughts...

LE will have a large number and be full color...
Initial premium Black and White. Will sell well to most.
Pros full color.

***LEs sell out because people want all features AND color.*** Max profit. Ensures sellout, unlike Deadpool.

Later...
Premium release with LE full-color playfield.

I have zero idea this is correct but just wanted to add to the pure speculation of this thread.

#3805 9 months ago

I hear 800 LE’s

In the food for thought category, has anyone considered this is just a massive CES PR stunt for general sales to the public, i.e. non-pinheads, and creating a buzz at CES? They are there to make waves in order to get some free PR buzz going, what not a better way than putting out a B&W version of your next big title? I think they are counting on the avant garde angle here and how a pinball company could be so bold to put out a B&W version of something that has for the most part, like 99.999999% of the time, been a Disney-esque pukefest of color, lights and sounds. This will make people stop, turn there heads sideways a little, and walk into the booth... a colorless pinball machine, thats just crazy... wait, it is kinda cool... hey I want one.

Yes but don't tell anyone Bublehead, its all a Stern CES conspiracy to sell pinball machines. But please don't let anyone know our mad business plan. shhhh

No, it had not occurred to me that Stern was taking part in CES to generate press for Munsters and their other products, perhaps in pursuit of a desire to sell more pinball machines and promote their "global lifestyle brand."

Thanks for the insight!

#3811 9 months ago

Wait wait wait you guys. You don't understand. Stern is using CES as an advertising platform. Don't let all the other companies there know. It's pinnovation.

#3813 9 months ago

Next they will start going to pinball shows to try and increase sales!

#3814 9 months ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

creating a buzz at CES

In the end, more buzz will be generated on Pinside than any other place, including CES.

I'd actually be curious how much money goes into Stern being at CES, and what that generates for them and compare that against Pinside (that costs them zero) and the sales generated here.

#3815 9 months ago

Lets just get on with the show already!

all those downvoters do you own or watch b/w tv?

It costs a shit-ton of $$$ to be an exhibitor on a main floor of a trade show.

Floor space, location, custom booth, Union Workers to assemble/tear down that booth, storage of that booth, lodging/airfare/wine/dine. Lots of $$$.

#3818 9 months ago

Not to be a buzzkill here, but any ideas on pricing? How many more ‘ less for more’ price hikes can we get?

#3820 9 months ago

Same pricing as Iron maiden and Deadpool

Nope, only 500.

thanks gary!

It's a beta male thing, you just wouldn't understand.

#3823 9 months ago

Gonna guess that B&W playfield now available for any model when ordering with Code: BWOPT
Pins will start going to the car option model sooner or later

#3824 9 months ago

When is the reveal?
Dont feel like searching 300+ posts.

Yes, I'm sure we would be shocked at that number. And I'd be curious how Stern measures success at CES. Like, today at 11am at their booth, I'd be curious what the head count is at the big reveal, and compare that with the Pinside count.

If someone is there, please post a photo of the crowd around at the reveal, to give us an idea.

#3827 9 months ago

Well it is good to see the we have enough conductors on the hype train express... sheesh. Wouldnt want a post with little to no merit to slip by all the keyboard warriors who are ready to pounce on your throat at a momments notice... as a matter of curiosity, I am crafting this post to actually maximize blood boiling. And it should start bubbling right about now...

Due to the extreme hype and excitement created by a Munsters B&W pinball machine, Stern has decided to release all their pins with an option for Black & White in 2019!

It's just that my head is spinning from the idea that Stern is at CES to generate press and hype!

I wonder what other nefarious tricks they have up their sleeves!

Came because of the Munsters hype, stayed because ... I'm hyped

Looks great, where to buy ???

Beatles Black Ice = $1 million. Hand stamped and numbered "One of One", this collectible is for the man who has everything but wants more. Buy it now and nobody else in the wide world will have one .... ever! White glove delivery for only $25k more and a happy ending is guaranteed.

I heard they were going to hire that Jared guy for social media but with a very tight muzzle and a shock collar.

God, how much would Guardians suck if it was in B&W.

Quoted from benheck:

The more people complain about a black and white version the more I hope Stern makes one
People on here have no vision. It could look AMAZING and would stand out in any arcade or basement.

If its black and white I think it will look terrible, if it's gray scale it might look good.
