Quoted from jfh:

What’s the initial thinking from LE owners on long term playability of the lower PF? Do you think the novelty will wear off?

I’m not an Munsters LE owner, but I have played some pinball.

I don’t think any lower playfield will ever top the likes of Black Hole or Haunted House: reversed orientation, pop bumpers, drop target banks, orbits, captive balls, etc. Those were stellar, especially for the time period, and still are today.

But then, in my opinion, you have duds like Elektra, even AC/DC, where the lower PF just isn’t all that exciting.

I really like that they integrated a VUK and ramps on the lower PF on this game, and incorporated a MB mode in Grandpa MB. I think that will keep the lower PF much more interesting on this title longer than others.

Quoted from jfh:

I agree about HH/BH. Was just playing HH today and thinking how much of a difference full size flippers and drop targets make compared to what I remember from the few games I’ve played on a Munsters Premium. I like the Munsters implementation much better than Stewie pinball but having a hard time deciding if I would like it long term to pay the difference between a Pro and a Premium.

Definitely. Having 3 inch flips and drops on the lower PF makes you feel like you’re playing another playfield with purpose, not some “sub playfield”.

I’ll have to put some games up on a pro and premium, but truth be told, I’m not real fond of the artwork on the LE. And the red cab stripe seems a little out of place. The premium might be the way to go.

Just read through the complete rule sheet and comments. Definitely a lot more going on in this game than I thought.

Quoted from bigd1979:

Buy my pro when i upgrade to a premium

Hit me up when you decide to move it...you have my number. And if you still have that poor WCS all dismantled in your dining room I’ll take that too just to save it.

Quoted from snaroff:

Man, I can excuse saving the money for Pro's, however Stern should splurge for the harder woods on the Premium/LE products!

So people shelling out only 5 or 6K for a game should get a shitty product? I don’t think I like or agree with that rationale. All of their playfields should be better quality, no matter what model it is.

Quoted from Lawnboy:

If anyone in the area wants to stop by and try it send me a PM. My wife is leaving tomorrow and gone until Sunday so I have lots of pinball time.

So if I get in my car now...

Quoted from sepins:

How they got that much stuff packed in to the mini PF in an amazing feat.

How? This guy built it when he took a break from tuning up the car.

Munsters number 3!!!! BOOM!!!
Say whaaaaat??? That’s what I am talking about!!

You know what they say...

CD7016E3-2AD0-469D-BB99-6B135AAEF04C (resized).jpeg

Actually put a few games up on a Pro last weekend. It was pretty decent...smooth shots. Not as smooth as the orbit or ramps on MET though. Left outlane kicked me square in the nuts. Gotta put a few up on an LE or Prem now.

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

ACNC is basically this.

I hear people say that, but I put about six or seven games on one at York last year, and was hitting shots pretty smoothly. A few people I watched were struggling and throwing bricks. I figured maybe they were masons.

Still, I think ACNC is a pretty cool game with an awesome art package. I’m just not a huge Alice Cooper fan. Now if ACNC was Alice in Chains Nightmare Castle...

Quoted from jfh:

Some are upgrading from Pros to Premiums, but it seems like there is a fair amount of concern about longevity in a collection and the quick exits from collections are more than normal flipping.

I’ve heard quite a few people I know that purchased a Pro say that they were not happy with it, and either looked to sell pretty quickly or upgraded to a Prem or LE.

#8159 7 months ago

All the back-and-forth above is true in part, but Who-Dey has a premium, not a pro. The talk I mentioned was about pros getting liquidated quickly all of a sudden. The fun level for me on the pro was very low, especially when you know there are other models with other options and increased functionality.

However, attention spans will shift quickly these days with Stern pumping out several games a year. The hype used to last much longer when they were only releasing one game a year.

Let’s not fool ourselves. Stern is certainly about making money these days, not pumping out the best games possible. That is actually an impossibility when you are releasing multiple titles per year.

Some people forget...
