Put me in on The Munsters. Holding a "Spot" for it. Excited about Munsters !

Also looking forward to Elvira. Then I'll have to find a space for that too...

Quoted from Budman:

At least tell us if it will be a fourth quarter launch....?

Supposed to be. But wonder how late as Deadpool needs to be released first. It has been pretty quiet on Deadpool so far.

After Deadpool it's the Munsters.

#187 1 year ago

Munsters isn't supposed to a Ka-pow title from what information is out there. It is Borg's next game.

#191 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Kapow doesnt design the games either way. Its a partnership that is more about securing resources and marketing.
For instance... pooling assets

Sure - gottcha. I don't believe though that the Munsters title is part of any Kapow deal.

#193 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

From what ive heard, it is not a Kapow game.

That is what my information indicates too.

#199 1 year ago

Munsters and Elvira for me also !

#231 1 year 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.

Pretty much ditto on Deadpool and Munsters, with Elvira as 1st quarter of 2019. Beatles could maybe change the equation for Elvira. Don't know. Elvira is a done deal per Casandra Peterson..... Just a question of release. She was thinking late this year or early next year.

Don't know how or when Beatles would fit in the release schedule.... Maybe Q2 2019 ....

Anyway get Deadpool out there so we can get closer to the Munsters !

They sure disappeared quick. Legit or not.

#619 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

Yep the pro and premium will be drastically different
This will be the haunted house mansion 1313 Mockingbird Lane under glass

I am usually a Pro guy. I'll maybe have to wait and see what the Pro vs the Premium looks like.

#838 1 year ago

Pro, Premium, LE models.

1 week later
#896 1 year ago

Won't suck though - I'll wager Munsters is a great game. I'll order a Pro on day one.

#898 1 year ago

I'm a Pro model type guy. That's all. That's what I'm comfortable spending and often the Pro models I think play with better flow etc. It's just my individual wheelhouse. I am sure Premium and LE models will be nice too.

#919 1 year ago

Yup - Munsters IS next.

and do not be surprised if Elvira is released in Spring 2019....

#928 1 year ago

Iron Maiden and Deadpool are both very good games.

I have no doubts Munsters will be very good too - and yes it is the next game.

#954 1 year ago

Was starting to think this was the Hobbit thread with some trolling happening here and there.

This is the Munsters thread. It is next. Goody Goody Goody. Ha ha ha. Foot stomp. Foot stomp.

Munsters is next.

Enough trolling. Fishing isn't good in this thread. Thanks.

#1027 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

I hope he is right. I'm tired of the speculation and ready for the reveal.

Munsters is next.

There is no need to speculate different. Don't know if you'll see it at Expo though. Likely You'll see Pro's in November.

And to some other comments -
There is no need for back trolling. That fishing technique doesn't do any better than regular trolling here.
Fishing using beetles or a red herring is unproductive Try different waters.

#1029 1 year ago

Watching for an announcement ... it may not be timed for Expo... but I don't think it is very far off.

#1031 1 year ago

November is not far off ...

#1033 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

vireland doesn't believe me so I know he will not believe you.

It's ok - He can think what he wants. I just think some of the occasional extraneous fishing in this thread is unproductive.

Let's just sit back and relax and wait. It won't be terribly long. Heck, tomorrow is October 1st already. It's all good.

#1043 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

So you're saying that The Munsters is going to be about fishing then? Im getting so confused
[quoted image]

No, No, you're confused. There's another guy that's trying to fish with the Beatles in this thread.

But, hey, If there's a clip on the LCD in the upcoming Munsters pin with Herman's family fishing that's ok !

#1045 1 year ago

Now vireland can be happy - this was probably the confusion...

Quoted from Edster:

Hey isn't that Frank Gorshin aka The Riddler???

Oh geez - now we are going to have talk of Batman66 here too.

#1049 1 year ago

@ Edster - ditto , Munsters and Elvira for me too ! I think Who-Dey is in the same camp also.

#1074 1 year ago

MUNSTERS IS NEXT. Plain and Simple. It is not very far off either.... The other stuff is just noise.

Nothing has changed. Get your money ready.

#1076 1 year ago

Not happening - that's wrong. IT'S MUNSTERS !

Twip - is off the mark on that rumor- totally false. They possibly got some of that misinformation here ? It's wrong.

MUNSTERS FOLKS.

#1079 1 year ago

No offense meant to Twip. But if some of the noise about Beatles moving up is any way even considered partially from here it's way off base...

Munsters next.

#1127 1 year ago

I think I'm looking at the wrong thread - I thought this was the Munsters thread ?

Must have got changed today. Sorry - I'll go look in the Beatles thread and see if the Munsters is there.

#1134 1 year ago

Sales Bonanza will start in November for sure, not counting the very first initial sales late this month soon as they make the announcement. You will see Pro's shipping in November.

#1136 1 year ago

Ha Ha at maniac. Nice.

I think we will see Production photos of Munsters sometime after Expo and before the end of the month. Hold tight - it's coming...

#1317 1 year ago

Yes - pinside will blow up when the Production Photos are shown.

#1327 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

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

Ding Ding !

#1331 1 year ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

If you watch the Stern Live Tour on their FB page, you can overhear a conversation with John Borg and Todd Tuckey, where Borg mentions his new game coming out next month.
So: Munsters is still next and it's coming in November!

Ding Ding - again

re: post 1325 , 1328

#1333 1 year ago

No marketing BS - it's a theme John has wanted to do since 2009 .... This is going to be really good !

Photos sometime after Expo and probably before the month is out .

#1373 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

MBrLe is $5,400?

I was scratching my head too on that one .

cpr9999 - it's ok I'm relaxed. Equivalents and pricing comparisons here sometimes vary.

Any way you cut it - Munsters coming and all good.

For those that missed it .... wolfemaaan and others

It's coming soon.

#1401 1 year ago

Munsters news will be soon, it's John's next game and it is next month.

Anything else heard is just noise. Don't worry, no bug infestation for awhile.

#1405 1 year ago

Just Noise from the misinformed, trolls etc. No worries.

No beetles (resized).jpg
#1418 1 year ago

3 cornerstone title's per year. This year has been Iron Maiden, Deadpool and the Third one will be John Borg's game and coming next month. It's The Munsters.

#1456 1 year ago

Munsters still good - it's coming also..... never mind the side show in between. That Still sounds like noise to me. No worries.

All is good yet. Munsters will blow you away .

Wait about 6 weeks or so.

#1459 1 year ago
Quoted from Rolls-Royce:

I thought that this was a joke until I saw Stern logo at the end

The joke is some people will buy it. Different strokes for different folks. I am sure some will enjoy it. All good.

Even better game coming ! The 3rd cornerstone.

Hats off to Stern for throwing the Insects in too.

#1461 1 year ago

I'm surprised they pulled it off that quick with the Beatles . Some folks will like it and buy them.

Guess I was confused, I thought it was the VW Beetles.... Now that might have been a winner with me.

Anyhow - even better stuff ahead - The topic of this thread. Munsters.

#1466 1 year ago

Munsters is still coming. No worries folks. It's ok.

#1472 1 year ago

Thought about today, then I had to check the calendar - I was starting to think today was April 1st.

Guess I was expecting too much out of that other title. Now I guess I understand how it got done so quickly. I didn't think it was possible to put that game together so quickly. Now I know why. Yes I was surprised.

Now we can get serious on Munsters since that other diversion is revealed. Good time's coming..... Sit back and relax.

#1474 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Yeah...sure. He's been saying Munsters before Beatles EVERY time I said that wasn't the order. He was wrong.

You were right - congratulations ! That reveal was awesome.

Hey - it's ok - no skin off my nose.

#1477 1 year ago

Don't care. Don't get worked up over it.

I'm not pinning the reveal on you. I just said it was awesome.

You were right.

But hey - better days ahead. Munsters !

#1479 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

"I was wrong over and over, dogging on posts that had it CORRECT, but never mind that fact now that it's proven." At some point you have to realize you ARE the noise.

I said there was noise out there, but I never said you were it. Lots of buzz or noise that I thought was erroneous. Personal attack on me is a little cheap. But so be it.

#1481 1 year ago

It will have at least one regular playfield and a minimum of two flippers.

I'm pretty safe saying that.

#1487 1 year ago

Sounds to be about SPOT on.

John Borg had said next month in the facebook factory stream late last week, so Timeline may have moved a little bit...

Let's use a hypothetical of 6 more weeks, moving from the end of November and into December.

December sounds just as good to me.

#1512 1 year ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

It will have at least one regular playfield and a minimum of two flippers.
I'm pretty safe saying that.

JodyG
I'll say it has flipper buttons. Pretty certain on that also.

#1515 1 year ago
Quoted from JodyG:

Funny how uptight people can be in a place that is supposed to be their outlet for things they enjoy and have fun with. To those people: you're doing it wrong.

I thought your comment was humorous - that's why I added flipper buttons to my list. It's good.

Safe bet it will have flipper buttons. All in for flipper buttons.

I am usually not a mod guy, but green light up buttons might be nice, depending on color of the cabinet of course.

#1519 1 year ago
Quoted from JodyG:

No worries my friend, I was talking about the other guy

He's ok too.

Everybody needs to relax and think about the Munsters coming !

#1522 1 year ago

It will interesting to see what LCD will show. Many possibilities. Just like the playfield. Rich for opportunities for really good stuff.

#1572 1 year ago

You'll see Munsters end of November or Early December or so.

Hold steady.

Game will be out long before Texas show and appearance by Butch. (That is not the reveal) But that cameo with Butch should be fun nonetheless.

#1585 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

You keep saying this as well as the release prior to Beatles which Also didn’t happen. I suspect you are in for a disappointment this year.

I won't be disappointed. Munsters is happening.

It's the 3rd cornerstone. John Borg mentioned in the facebook factory stream that his game is coming next month.

Beatles was a Kapow - those can drop anytime. Munsters is still on track.... Late November, Early December - it's coming.

#1700 1 year ago
Quoted from PinBalt:So Jack Danger mentioned on a stream that he went to Stern photo shoot 3-4 days ago . Three upcoming games were there. One was “ok”. One was”Good” and one was “Blow your Dic! off amazing”. So what is the third Game? I’m guessing that Beatles was good and the ok game is the rumored Primus reskin of Whoa Nellie. That would mean Munsters will be turning all of us into unics
I cant imagine another major release would be shown this early. Any other thoughts?

The "amazing" one mentioned is Munsters .......

@ Who-Dey

Keep working hard and try to take satisfaction in a job well done. 35 years at one place is outstanding ! If I were your boss I'd give you a new pin when you retire.

My place of work is really good. One of my bosses has helped me carry pins in my basement on several occasions during midday break or he has run over to my house right after I call him when the delivery truck drops a pin at the house.

Yes - bring on the Munsters. I'll have my boss give me a hand when it comes !

#1794 1 year ago

I am usually a Pro buyer, but you never know. Could possibly do a Premium this time.

#1799 1 year ago

I hear you Who-Dey. It's tough to find good reliable people to work. I am thankful I work at a good place close to home with a flexible schedule and very good bosses !

#1801 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Im pretty sure the Pro model is the only model that isn't going to have the lower playfield. I also want a Premium with this game here but like you im not a fan of lower playfields so i don't know what im going to do.

Similar feelings. Pro is usually the way I go but I just might pop on Premium. I have really liked all the Pro models I have bought. They suit me well.

#1948 1 year ago

Ditto !

#1963 1 year ago

You are absolutely correct on her mother being a U.S. Treasurer. Nice fact. Good one.

#1982 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

That was my thought, but when asked I was told Beatles is not selling well. Sounds like they are hoping more impatient buyers will take home that 8k gold from Distributors 10-packs before offering the next PRO model with Muensters.

That could be the curve ball. Otherwise it sure was sounding we'd see something around next week or so....

Beatles is not selling well. One of my distros said he had zero interest in Beatles from buyers - not one single inquiry. So that could be the wrench in the works if there is one. I hope the lack of Beatles sales isn't causing one more delay on Munsters.

From what I have heard - still optimistic for announcement on Munsters soon

#1984 1 year ago

Production Photos were shot back around the 1st of the month or so. Can be anytime they decide to roll. It is just timing and the line.

#2326 1 year ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Announcement in December, units running down the line starting in December.... sales start in December....machines ship in January??!!

Probablity is high. Some Pro's might even ship before December is over depending on how quick the game gets going.

Munsters should hit the line fairly soon..... Reveal is coming

#2327 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Announcing games in December isn't new for Stern. I am betting the reveal and production will be starting this month.

Good bet.

#2330 1 year ago
Quoted from 30FathomDave:

Anything’s possible, but if what Butch Patrick told us is accurate (see post# 1857), the game will be unveiled in March, at TPF - so I’d be surprised if we see many playable machines (if any) prior to that.

That's just Butches appearance, that's been lined up for months, the game is coming way before that - release will be soon.

High probability that it is hitting the line in the next couple weeks...

#2719 11 months ago

I am definitely one of the Ten.

Though I think they will sell more than a few after that.

#2756 11 months ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

We are big Munsters fans, thats why we are excited! It also doesn’t hurt that John Borg is rumored to be saying that this is his best game ever

Have heard this also. Supposed to be his best shooting game yet.

#2757 11 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

If you buy Munsters I suggest pro then. It’s going to be a packed premium package so expect lots of tweaking again. All stern premiums need lots of tweaking.

One of the reasons I buy Pro models along with the pricing factor. Also in general, most Pro's shoot and flow better too in my opinion and experiences.

#2852 11 months ago

Beatles is also targeted to the normal pinball market besides "Beatles Collectors." The only problem is they made the Gold edition too over priced to be considered by most pinball types when so many other options are out there at less money. Golds would have sold much better at Pro Pricing.

8K for those Golds is a lot of bread for those ! Way too many games for my taste I'd rather buy with that money.

I'll take a Munsters !!! Let's go Stern.

I would have liked to have seen an announcement made in the last two weeks for Munsters. The Exports are on their way and Pro's are on the line. No need to delay..... I'd guess they just want to try selling a few more Beatles as those are not selling well at all.

Release the game we have been waiting for. Announce Munsters.

#2854 11 months ago

I'm sure Beatles is a fun game. But at 8k for a Gold, it sure isn't a lead choice to me. Enjoy. Not knocking the game.

I am just saying for myself it's too much for that title. I think they would have sold better if they would have had Pro Pricing. If your wallet opens further for that one more power to you. Enjoy the game. I am sure it's fun.

#2855 11 months ago

snaroff

I actually enjoy 80's and 90's games. They are fun ! That's not the issue with me. I just would rather put my money towards a different game if we are talking about spending 8k.

It's cool if you have a Beatles. I sure wouldn't object if one of my friends bought one. I'd sure be looking for an invite to play it.

#2857 11 months ago

Herman - where are you ? Come home soon. Eddie and Grandpa are waiting. Spot and Kitty need to be fed.

Lilly

P.S. Please pick up a Stern Munsters on your way home. We want to play pinball.

#2859 11 months ago
Quoted from frolic:

Stern doesn't think this way. They release games on the schedule of keeping their factory busy. No more, no less. They design new games with the intention of putting something on the line - when the line needs something.
So Munsters hit the line because the factory needs it, and then they market around that.

Exports games are out and Domestic Pro's are on the line. What's the hang up ? Push them out already. Announcement please.

#2860 11 months ago
Quoted from Budman:

Beatles Gold would have been sold out or nearly so by now if it had been at Pro pricing

They'd be selling a lot better.

Now let's get those Munsters Pro's out there and see how that goes !

#2864 11 months ago

I have found Stern Pro's play very well. No problem going in blind for me - especially on this theme and being a John Borg game. John had wanted to do this theme for years and now it's done. This will be a winner. Not a head scratcher for me.

#2875 11 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

What was the last Borg Pro model that was a must buy over the Premium / LE?

I'm cheap. I buy Pro's. They usually flow better and play faster and less tweaking and adjusting. Just My preference. Probably what some others are thinking too. I don't usually need or miss the extras. Pro's are nice games.

Could I be blown away and buy a Premium or LE sometime. Sure.

#2878 11 months ago

Interesting conversations this morning on line. Too bad we are not talking about public reveal pictures today.

Come on Stern - Just do it.

#2928 11 months ago
Quoted from RobOOZE:

Very true! It in there by accident. It's going to be released soon. Everybody knows it's coming.

The games were running on two adjacent lines. Mix ups happen. If I wind up with extra Primus plastics in my Munsters Pro I will swap with you so you have the correct spares. Otherwise ask Stern for the correct goodie bag and send me your Munsters bag so I have extras.

#2941 11 months ago

RobOOZE

Very colorful Pin. Artwork is groovy. Hope you get the correct goody bag soon. Thanks for showing us what was inside your machine.

Enjoy your new game and easy on the Zima.

#2983 11 months ago
Quoted from RA77:

Lets have a guess on code
My guess is 0.98
There has been a long grace for this team
So guessing code will be up there

I've been told it will be worth the wait. I don't know what decimal the code will be at, but I sure am looking forward to seeing this game, getting this game shipped to me, and finally playing this game. Talk about a delayed wait.

Damn the Beatles - Or at least the pricing levels of them. Those things just haven't been selling well - because of the pricing. Game play I'm sure is fun. Not selling anywhere near what Stern wants. Those Gold editions will be hanging around a long time. Dealers have all they want or need. The demand isn't there. Time to move on to the next game.

Release Herman and his family from the factory. They want to come home - to my house. 1313 Mockingbird Lane.

Bring on the Munsters !

#2985 11 months ago

Yes that is good. There is a limit as to what most people will pay and perceived value.

Just too bad Beatles and Munsters release were switched. That is what happened. Only plus is maybe the code on Munsters may have gotten further work. Otherwise it would have been really nice to have had Munsters in late November or early December.

Anyway, now it is soon. (again) Really this time.

#3009 11 months ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

Hey, we have the same address! Maybe it will get delivered to me instead.

Maybe two on the same delivery truck. Like that hasn't happened before. LOL

Freight Driver - " I have another pinball game in the truck going to Saukville, next stop " Telephone rings - " Hey is there a freight truck at your house ? "

Me - " Yes he's dropping my game now - he should be to your house shortly with your game "

It would be funny if we got the same driver again .... This is probably what the drivers Manifest will look like

Munsters Delivery Day Manifest :
Stop #11 - 1313 Mocking Bird Lane, Grafton
Stop #12 - 1313 Mocking Bird Lane , Saukville

#3011 11 months ago

Probably or Probably Not.

#3019 11 months ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Yesterdays DF stream he was talking and it sounded like he will be streaming Munsters at that show. He didnt come out and say that obviously, but thats pretty much what it sounded like to me. Of course we still could see a reveal before then.......hopefully.

I like that plan - with a reveal before then thrown in for good measure.

Just announce it already !

#3033 11 months ago

... @ weinermobile

Stern will just pop this game public one of these days. No guessing on their marketing.

You'd have thought we would have seen this game by now.

Poor sales of Beatles is probably a contributing factor to the delay. Munsters is coming though. They probably have a fairly good pile of Domestic Pros sitting in the box already. They should flow out to distros quickly when they cut loose the Munsters being held hostage at the factory.

Let Herman Go !

#3037 11 months ago

...It's been delayed or placed out of order or what ever you want to call it flynnbust. Also the Pro Exports have been done and the Domestic Pros have been on the line for a week or two. Delayed in my book.

#3047 11 months ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I still think Monday 31st for teaser.

Monday the 31st, That would be good.

Anytime real soon would be very nice and make for a Happy New Year.

#3110 11 months ago
Quoted from MattElder:

He knows that. Not so much a swing and a miss, just dark humor. Read up on Trudeau and his issues and it will make more sense.

I understand the background. But is still the wrong family - doesn't quite fit. Also the subject matter as a joke as it relates to children is in very poor taste. Trying to stay level and just say it's a swing and a miss. I'd suspect more so trolling than a legitimate try at humor. If it was meant to be humor, it's in poor taste.

Bring on Munsters ....

Herman - "Hello Stern, It's almost a New Year and people would like to see the new Munsters Pinball" ....

Quoted from Who-Dey:

Yeah that would be awesome but i would even settle for a frozen pizza right now!

Don't do the frozen pizza - stay on your Hunger strike and hold out for real pizza.
I'll settle for a Munster's tease.

Not doing a hunger strike - just waiting it out.... reading, listening to some tunes,etc

Also - Have a Happy New Year !

I really hope this was sarcasm.

No Kidding. Don't hold you breath.

I might have considered the Premium if it would have been color.

Black & White fine for some I'm sure , but it doesn't grab me. Just personal preference.

#4204 11 months ago
Quoted from OnTheSnap:

I'm sure no one cares about what little old me thinks. But I'm a premium buyer typically. The black and white premium is VERY polarizing. For me I want the color, with the lower playfield. And I can't get it without $9000 in on the limited edition. AND I have to order it before I can even play it.
So I guess I'm out on the whole thing, unless Stern some day makes a color premium.
My 2c as an average joe consumer.

I'm with you. Only difference is that I am typically a Pro buyer. I may have upgraded to Premium this time if it would have been color. Black and White is ok but just is not my preference - I like the color.

Quoted from ahdelarge:

You and me both. The Pro art is my favourite. If I bought one it would be Pro for that reason. I've always been a Pro buyer, but that lower playfield looks cool.

Ditto That !

A Stern wide body could be very interesting. Or how about a narrow game like Safe Cracker ? Played one for the first time recently and was surprised.

#4734 11 months ago

They said in the stream last night you can turn the ball save on, but the default is off and they recommend leaving the default to no ball saves.

Dwight did a really nice job explaining the game, and you can tell the true enthusiasm he has. It was fun listening to him and made the stream interesting.

Quoted from John_I:

Good God I hate when people start saying this game is the same as that game, etc, etc. Here's one for you: this game uses steel balls and has four legs and a plunger. Oh my god the humanity.
This game is a breath of fresh air in many ways and a few negative Nancy's have to drag us down.

Maybe a fifth leg on the cabinet - would that be something new ? Would that satisfy the never satisfied ? Or a game with the plunger located on the rear of the cabinet ?

Quoted from Fytr:

Now *that's* a nifty mod idea. You press the coin return button and cold beer shoots out an enlarged coin return opening...

Even Better for a different manufacturer and game - should have been in Oktoberfest .

Quoted from cooked71:

Personally I buy LE’s because it’s my preferred version and it’s got all the extras I want anyway - custom rails, shaker, invisi, art blades, back glass and speakers. The whole limited collectible part is usually bullshit.

Ding Ding

500 or even 600 really isn't really that "limited" in number. Think of all the other units produced in Pro's and premiums. It's lots of games total. It's more like trim levels on a car. The LE part is more about the way the game is gussied up rather than how many made in that edition. 500 is pretty size able number. 500 units of any pinball is actually quite a number of games.

We don't know that changing the number of LE's is true anyway. If it is and it makes a difference to you, ... change your order, cancel or do what you like.

#4931 11 months ago

How does this compare to Pirates "Spinner Disc " aka Spinnergate scandal ?

#4933 11 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Unlike the Spinnergate thing, this won't move sales negatively at all. Probably will increase them net net.

Correct. This scandal nets more sales if the scandal is true.

I wouldn't believe anything about this though until verified by Stern.

#4935 11 months ago

I hope this change in number of units for LE is just noise.

#4941 11 months ago
Quoted from pin2d:

Going to report this on TWIP tomorrow, but since there is a lot of speculation right now - TWIP can confirm the number of LEs is now at 600.

This is going to make some folks really upset. If Jeff is reporting it, the probability is high the number is now 600.

#4958 11 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

If you’re upset at the thought of more people being able to enjoy a thing, time to re-evaluate your perspective on life.

I'm not upset. But some might be. Troll elsewhere.

Sure - I like more people enjoying games, I don't know how you infer I don't. Simple fact : This week In Pinball said he'd confirm that the LE number would be increased from 500 units to 600. I said some people would be upset. Some will I suppose.

You guys need to lighten the frick up and enjoy yourselves. There’s nothing worse than turning something SO GREAT in to something so full of bitching and moaning and stress.

#6580 10 months ago

Agree - lots of the posts are just shitfesting or ego puffers. Nothing productive. Some want to argue for the sake of arguing or to build up their self worth or something. Wind jammers.

The only place where coil counts is a big deal is in a sofa. Especially if you have a fat ass.

Why don't you start your own pinball company dude. Maybe you can do it F ing better. All you do is bitch and complain about this or that!
You route games for your boss and he keeps buying Stern pins

If I could give you two up votes I would.

#7995 9 months ago

Ditto @ Who-Dey on dream themes.

Munsters and Elvira all the way.

Batman66 is a cool theme too, but the price being a Premium model and some of the game play holds me back for it. I have been on and off the fence for BM66. If they would have made a Pro for Batman I would have bought one.

Enjoying Munsters a lot. Bring on Elvira !

Nah - not even close. Munster Koach is cool.

A Hillbillies pin could be a good pin though.
