Munsters is Fact, no speculation. 4th 1/4 this year. Too many eyes reading pinside, can't comment further.

Let's get Deadpool out of the gate first ehh.

Quoted from Macca101010:

Franchi, Borg and Dwight doing the Munsters by the sounds of it.
Franchi said on TWIP that Borg & Dwight is working with him on his upcoming pin.

All true

#247 3 years ago
Quoted from docquest:

Most people are speculating Deadpool in a couple of weeks, Munsters Q4 2018 (maybe at expo) and Beatles in Q1 2019.

We have a winner.

Quoted from cpr9999:

When is Munsters planned release date?

Pro mid November

#514 3 years ago
Quoted from Rolls-Royce:

Pro or perhaps .... they’re planning again SLE with this title huh?


#592 3 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

So ....
The LE has brass trim, 'brass' powder legs, and what looks like a gold coin door. Backglass looks off too.
The Premium has bright purple lockdown bar and rails, black hinges, and anthracite legs. Looks absolutely bizarre.
Neither has lollipop rails.
Both look bad even for renders. Gonna say this is either fake or they won't have those trim options. Also can't see Stern going for a full black and white display. That would put a lot of people off and would be far too big a risk.
If this does come from Stern, it's either an early mock up or they're blowing smoke. More likely, given the mess, it doesn't.

These pictures are almost a year-old and mock ups. There are changes.

#617 3 years ago
Quoted from whthrs166:

I sure hope so! I would love to see Brian Eddy do it. Have spot come out of the staircase breathing fire! Maybe have an under playfield sorta like Haunted House for Grandpas lab! They need to do it right though. Use the second seasons theme the one with the electric guitar!

Yep the pro and premium will be drastically different

This will be the haunted house mansion 1313 Mockingbird Lane under glass

#625 3 years ago
Quoted from greenhornet:

then how do boutiques stay in business selling perhaps only 500?

Less overhead less employees

#763 3 years ago
Quoted from RA77:

Munsters LE will not be instant sell out, even at 500 units.

Wanna bet ?

Will sell out instant to distributors, just like the rest.

#771 3 years ago

If you are a fan of Gottlieb Haunted House. Munsters LE/Premium will be your game. Jacked up 2018 style !

#793 3 years ago

Dwight Sullivan blog spot for those interested.


#822 3 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

That's crazy. Iron Maiden has WAY more appeal globally, and they wouldn't even go to 666 (which they would have sold). I can't imagine they'll do 1000 on Munsters. Worldwide demand isn't there.

A good friend of mine was at the factory last week, and he said Baffle Ball will be the next VE.

Yup - Munsters IS next.
and do not be surprised if Elvira is released in Spring 2019....

Before or after BK3K ?

#1070 3 years ago

Someone started a rumor Beatles and Munsters were a simultaneous expo debut. But that was months ago and stuff always changes getting closer to release.
So if something is different then it changed recently.

Munsters is a normal 3-Model pro/prem/LE release.

Beatles is Kapow.

#1085 3 years ago
Quoted from pin2d:

Just for a little clarification - the Munsters has been rumored to be the next title for a long time, it has just been recently that we've heard Beatles may be next. BUT, we've also heard nothing has changed with scheduling. So we're getting some conflicting info. A lot can change from one week to the next with these release schedules, let alone between TPF and now.
Also, we don't use random pinsider posts as a "source", that...would not be a good idea Unless the post is from mnpinball.
Honestly, I'm not too fussed one way or another which is next, whether it is Beatles or Munsters, as both should be coming relatively soon. I like Beatles better as a license, I am not much into the Munsters theme since I never watched it. Game-wise though, I am looking forward to the Beatles, but am REALLY looking forward to seeing Munsters - the rumors for Munsters make it sound pretty incredible!


If you like, Monster Bash, Scared Stiff, Addams Family, Haunted House, Class of 1812, Creature.....etc.... Don’t matter if you watched the show or not this game will be up your alley.

#1151 3 years ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

A Podcast said Beatles is going to be a rehashed layout. Which layout?

Who are the rumored designer/coder for Munsters?


#1249 3 years ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Sooooo......... the Munsters is next. I have a feeling it may not be announced until after Chicago Pinball Expo.

Ding fries are done.

#1259 3 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Wait...no Munsters Expo?....

I would go there expecting not to see it, then if it is actually announced or shown then you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Quoted from Sinestro:

Borg just confirmed on the Facebook Live video that his next game comes out next month!

What !?! You don’t say.
It was funny hearing Jared’s response and cutting that interview short with Borg and Tucky.

#1384 3 years ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

Probably not the smartest move on their part... I am looking at grabbing a Monster Bash LE now as well. A simple announcement probably would have swayed me away from that completely........

Even if you get a MBr you will find a way to get a Munsters.

Quoted from pinballwil:

There isn't any news.
Its coming out november.

The word among expo is 4 insects first.

#1390 3 years ago
Quoted from tilted81:

So that means borg isnt doing Munsters? Because his game was next right?

#1484 3 years ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

There is still time for a Munsters announcement in November.


#1536 3 years ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

Only the LE is black and white. All the other packages are going to be color. If those photos are to be believed. The LE will probably be hte lowest selling. As its capped.


#1648 2 years ago

Quoted from CubeSnake:

It's a near-certainty that Stern WILL indeed overcharge you AND as an additional gift, be of inferior quality. Sorry Stern, but the record you've made for yourselves speaks volumes...incomplete code, absolute amateur quality "artwork", McDonald's happy meal toys strewn about the playfields and, oh let's not forget cabinets with the durability of a soap bubble. Trust me, if there is a way to foul up such an awesome theme as The Munsters, Stern will be the guys to do it!

This game will be a top seller and probably one of the best Stern full featured games since the Simpson’s Pinball party and POTC. (Premium/LE). Trying to keep the hype train down but this one is rolling full steam ahead. LE will be full Technicolor

#1650 2 years ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

For end of November reveal?

Got to keep the bean counters and investors happy it’s year end 2018 quarterlies, I’d say they’re going to get some orders in for those pros by December

#1668 2 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

We should know a lot more on the 12th ...

What’s on the 12th ???

I was thinking later in November the Illinois pop culture event right in Stern‘s backyard would be a great time for a debut where Butch Patrick of the Munsters will be attending.
I have no knowledge if Stern will be attending but it certainly would make sense as a marketing event to capture a different crowd.

Quoted from JY64:

Whatever is in the Munsters it will not live up to the hype remember how smug was doing everything from eat the ball to shoot fire out his ass games never live up to the hype SW, TB, GOT

It will...

#1944 2 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

what do you guys think grandpas basement is going to be?
Rumored lower pf on the prem/le.
Possibly inverted like black hole?

1. Awesome
2. Yes,Will be better than AC/DC.....
3. No

#1953 2 years ago
Quoted from idtattoo:

Can’t wait to see playfield pictures. Really trying to put money away for this one.

You need to book more tattoo work

#2035 2 years ago
Quoted from MikeS:

Bummed to see that the Pro only has 2 flippers. I was really hoping for a 3 flipper design. Hopefully the left ramp/lift ramp is smoother than the TWD Bicycle Girl which takes a lot of tweaking to get it to shoot smoothly. Artwork looks nice and it has some nice features but overall I guess I was expecting something different and less re-hashed given the amount of pre-launch hype.

Then buy the premium or LE, 4 flippers.

#2143 2 years ago
Quoted from vex:

I hope the lower playfield will have more relevance then acdc.

#2197 2 years ago
Quoted from Mizzou0103:

Completely agree. I was hoping Iron Maiden and Deadpool were the start of something new and different at Stern. I feel like by having Metallica and TWD I’ve got enough Borg designs in my game room. No need for Munsters.

you have no idea until you see the premium

#2437 2 years ago

I’ve heard pro production line started For the overseas units. It won’t be long for an announcement now.

I’m extremely excited for this title and it’s going to sell a hell of a lot of units I’m refraining from posting too much on here cause everybody has eyes everywhere reading stuff .

I’ve had my LE model order in many months ago. Can’t wait.

#2446 2 years ago
Quoted from MikeS:

Didn't the mini screen in WWE LE come out before JJP DI?

What’s the question ?

Hobbit 2 LCD
DI 3 LCD (first pin with 3)

#2495 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

I think they are gonna try and squeeze more Beatle's sales and wait until first week of Jan. and then show it at CES January 9th.
Wouldn't it be tough to ramp up production during Xmas?
Although I'm sure they would like to blunt the MBr sales too.

Production line has already begun late last week on said Munsters.

#2513 2 years ago

Might as well snooze this thread for awhile. Enjoy the games you have, enjoy your friends and family for Christmas. Enjoy those leaked cell phone pics, that’s all you get for awhile from the overseas leak. Not gonna announce a game while others are selling briskly and dealers are trying to sell in stock product for the holidays.

Just be happy knowing that pros are on the line for overseas container shipments.

Stern has got a good schedule going, as in past releases.
1. Production begins for Europe Pro sales.
2. Containers get loaded for the slow boat.
3. USA market Pros get on the line.
4. Teaser vid.
5. Announcement
6. 24-48 hours later press release and pics.
7. Live video of massive amount of cabinets and games built in the line.
8. Games ship to people within days.
9. People lose their shit because of the quick build-to-shipping timeline and Pinside goes apeshit.

Seems to be the recent trend. Love it.

#2579 2 years ago
Quoted from ShinyBall:

Now the problem, (for me at least) a very colorful premium cabinet...or the black and white LE...

LE not B&W.....

#2614 2 years ago
Quoted from Bingovit:

The Belgian distributor was told, we can add a few pro games to fill the container of our next game by December but we can’t tell you yet what it is...
True story! So the’ve ordered 20 pro games without knowing what they’ve ordered

Now that’s some crazy ass bullshit way of doing business.

#2677 2 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

On the Munsters theme, the DVD complete set video quality is WAY WAY better than whatever smudgy vaseline-coated version they're showing on TV currently. Also, the abandoned pilot looks colorized, not like it was shot in color. Was it? Skin color moves around and under the blue makeup. It's weird.

Pilot was shot in true color to sell to the studios network but ultimately the show then went to black-and-white for cost savings, And as they say to resemble the Universal movie monster films.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Beatles was intended for CES and has switched places. Not due to delay but to release Beatles as a 'christmas gift' title for non pinball collectors makes sense.
With full reveal at CES the games can start shipping immediately. Games arrive on european shores January 8th if I remember correctly.
Dwight said in his last interview Stern has some News in Stock from the very first day of the year, so I'm thinking Stern Teasers start Jan. 2nd latest.

Quoted from cpr9999:

Just need to see some decent released pictures!

Decent unreleased pics are great !

#3455 2 years ago

Everyone at Stern is reading these posts so keep making your opinions heard about the black-and-white because the premium will be built last of all three models......

#3499 2 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

How about a real Knocker stern???
When Herman gets mad and shaker goes off and he's jumping up and down, that sounds fun.
Knocker for the many door effects show would use.
B&W......Im out if thats the premium. B&W for LE makes more sense. Or a limited LE to 1313 edition.

LE is full color.

#3571 2 years ago

That Mexican Facebook group that was touring the floor live just confronted Jack Danger and Zach Sharpe that was pretty funny. Zach kept a pretty stone cold face on that interview.

No reveal tonight boys and girls you can all go back to watching the Golden Globes, dealers get a full webinar conference call tomorrow and the new game reveal is Tuesday as posted in the press release.

#3587 2 years ago

Kept quiet far too long so it’s time to hype it up a day before the reveal. My dream theme.

#3651 2 years ago
Quoted from OnTheSnap:

My guess is they open orders for all 3 machines tomorrow, but we will only see the Pro. Which just really sucks.
I'm supposed to place a pre-order on a LE or Premium that I can't see? Just like what happened with Iron Maiden.
Hoping it's not the case, and I can make a semi-informed decision tomorrow.
I can always wait 1-2 months until I can play a Premium. Which in my area is unlikely.

All 3 versions on display Tuesday.

Borg knocked this design out of the stratosphere! When’s the last time a lower pf had a ramp and a wireform ?

After the Gary Stern webinar today at 1:30 there’s stuff floating around because every single dealer had access to the information but I’m not going to be “that guy” and share dumb down pixelated pics or whatever. I’m gonna let Stern do the proper reveal the way it’s meant to be. Respect to John Borg, Christopher Franchi, Dwight and the whole team that worked on this fantastic game.

You guys can wait another half a day with Stern to do it right and Jack Danger have the Twitch feed reveal. It’s worth the wait.

Same pricing as Iron maiden and Deadpool

Quoted from benheck:

Why make a game deep when Stern knows you'll barf out cash as long as it's pretty looking with a desirable old man theme?
I've said it before but this hobby needs to get over art. You are all drunk on it. Look how many people and companies JPOP tricked with just art.
I guess that's the point of art, to create an emotional response. But in pinball that emotion is being used to mask other things. Like a magicians trick, look at the shiny object in this hand while I remove features with the other...

America’s Most Haunted plays pretty decent I’ll give you that Ben, but the art on it looks like ass.

Retheme it as Scooby Doo and reskin it with Hanna-Barbera art and I’d buy one.

#7370 2 years ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

This game doesn't have deep code, that doesnt mean that its not good or fun. I can think of tons of games that have less code than the Munsters that are fun as hell and all time greats that will stand the test of time forever.
The game is what it is and we must accept it...or not. I have several games so i don't think its shallow code will bother me at all, just like a MB, AFM, or a MM shallow code would not bother me. For me personally the awesome theme makes up for the shallow code and makes it a must have. The game is still a fun game though and it shoots very well.
This game certainly isn't for everyone, no game is but for people that love fun pinball and this theme, this game is a home run all the way in my opinion.

Lol Every single Bally Williams game has less code than Munsters

#7583 2 years ago
Quoted from Amused_to_Death:

[quoted image]
Looks like flat black with krinkle finish to me. On the web, too.

They'll be making mine match, that's for sure!

Stern should’ve did what it was originally intended, gloss black with heavy gold flake powder coat to represent the George Barris 60s rat rod Dragula iconic look. Black krinkle finish is cheap as far as I’m concerned for a limited edition. Just another cost cut for the bean counters.

#7670 2 years ago
Quoted from benheck:

Played Munsters LE at Sunshine Laundry.
It's pretty fun! Good light show and fairly well done sound alike speech.
Lower PF has a lot of stuff but the small ball does feel very floaty. Basically has a time limit which is bumped up if you make shots.[quoted image]

Hmmm, what’s a Wisconsin guy doing over in New York ? Perhaps a visit to a Jersey pinball factory ? Let the rumors begin

#7723 2 years ago

Premium/LE.... pro never matters in these arguments.

#7830 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

First time in years I've agreed with anything RH has said. That's a bit unnerving as i have my LE coming soon!

Either you’re moving to the left or he’s moving to the right
