Quoted from Aurich:

I've never seen an episode of the Munsters in my life. I've been vaguely aware of them as an Addams Family knockoff I guess, and that's about it.

The Munsters, The Adams Family and Bewitched all came out on TV at the exact same time (the same week, believe it or not).

The Munsters, of course got better ratings than Adams Family, because it was more fun.

Herman Munster is believed to be the first gay sitcom star. You could not have a gay character as the lead 1964, but an effeminate Frankenstein was apparently OK with the network.

Quoted from Thunderbird:

Actually Batman 66 is Stern’s best selling table of all time, we’ve been told.

The best selling Stern is Meteor, with almost 8,000 made.

#4350 1 year ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

Any guesses how many Munsters will sell?

Well, if you take 1964 made, then figure that 1/2 are going overseas, then split between LE Pre and Pro, then the secret LEs with the Black LED illumination.....and times it by 2X for the two years it was on the air.

#4400 1 year ago
Quoted from HighVoltage:

Yet all credible sources with a synopsis of this character mysteriously make no mention of this!

When the network saw that there was no backlash about a gay Frankenstein, that opened the door to the most over-the-top gay of any TV character of the 60s:

Dr Smith from Lost In Space

Have you ever seen what Comcast tries to pass as local HD channels compared to what comes free from a regular antenna?

Comcast is HDlite

#4614 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I don't pay for $1 games- I walk away.

Black Knight was the game where most ops raised the price to .50 cents.

.50 cents back then is $1.62 in today's money.

So $1 is a friggin' bargain.

Quoted from vireland:

Beatles is soft pastel colors. Munsters is not. Not even close.

I think he was just baiting the group.....

#4685 1 year ago
Quoted from zr11990:

Alas, my business is hanging by a thread and my son is at A&M and my daughter is getting married next year to a good guy this time.

Just cancel cable.

#4756 1 year ago

Ever since Future Spa, 93.1% of all successful pins are a fan layout.

Might as well get used to it.

#4897 1 year ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

Should we email NOW distributors and Stern and complain about pulling this fast one in LE owners. - If it is officially announced by Stern I will be calling.

Stern making an extra 100 LEs will allow them to make an extra quarter of a million dollars.

That will be good bank when the economy tanks latter this year.

If it keeps Stern in business, it's a good thing!

#4902 1 year ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

True, but what if someone who regularly buys LE's stops buying them altogether over this?

Never going to happen.

Did anyone stop buying JJP after the 20th limited edition of WOZ came out?

#4910 1 year ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

I bought 5 NIB Stern pins in the past 3 years, all LE's and I am seriously considering stopping buying them now if they pull this.

Other than Transformers, you don't see many LEs sitting around unsold.

Stern added the 100 because of overwhelming demand.

If you cancel yours (as you should), there are lots of other Pinheads waiting to snatch it.

#4919 1 year ago
Quoted from ShinyBall:

Ha Ha you know whats funny (not really) is the poor guy that paid the extra $150 for number 500...think it was listed as the last one..

They should give that guy a free bowl of soup.

#5063 1 year ago
Quoted from jawjaw:

Unethical? I don't recall Stern ever making any hard "promises" to anyone.

Stern originally said that Mexico was paying for the extra 100 games.

#5068 1 year ago
Quoted from OnTheSnap:

If that's the case, quit whining.

Then there would be no Pinsde

#5072 1 year ago
Quoted from Amused_to_Death:

Kaneda is doing some backtracking on his latest podcast... so all of the arguing and complaining about additional LEs may end up being for nothing.

You know the K-gland is laughing his ass off on getting you guys all fired up again.

"I only buy LEs, but now I'm never buying another Stern again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"It's UNETHICAL !!!!!!!!!!!"

"Stern is pure business, nothing else!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"If we all stop buying LEs, the Stern Shutdown will teach them a lesson!!!!!!!"

"I have a dog named Spot!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I just got off the phone with Gary.

He says Stern is considering giving a coupon for a free pedicure to the first 500 Pinside LE buyers; so everyone is properly pampered.

Quoted from cooked71:

Be cool if you could stand in that while playing your Munsters LE # 499.

I'd worry that I'd do some drastic save, and accidentally step on the fish.

Those things eat dead skin all day long, who knows what would squish out of them.....

Quoted from Sinestro:

JJP has had zilch to do with Stern's growth. Their roll-out schedule since 2011 is anemic at best.

It's not like one single thing made Stern suddenly take off.

A bunch of little things, all added up and created, the Perfect Stern Storm

Quoted from jeffgoldstein2:

Are there any games that have ever been released that a stand up target actually felt like a satisfying shot?

Whitewater Extra Ball

#5617 1 year ago

Modern Stern games; always trying to save money on drops

#5624 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Yeah, and World Poker Tour cost like $3500 NEW with all those drop banks.

Don't blame me, blame JJP

#5628 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Yes, JJP raised prices across the board in pinball

Not just raised, but practically doubled the prices.

My TRON LE was $5200, and at the time, THAT seemed like a lot of extra cash for some pretty lights and 4 drop targets.....

#5635 1 year ago
Quoted from jawjaw:

I don't get how prices have shot up so much in the last 5 years or so but they have.

Stern was rescued & purchased by a group of investors (some of the same guys that saved Harley Davidson )

If they see another company (JJP) selling the same product at 2x the price, they are not going to let Stern leave money on the table.

All you pinheads rush out and buy each new release, without even playing it.

Stern would be fools to not keep jacking up the price every few months; no one is pushing back.

#5663 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Also no ball save?

You can turn ball save on in the menu, so it's not really a big issue.

If one of the updates removes it from the menu, then everyone will have something to talk about.

Quoted from Spacemanratso09:

I personally think the shadow is the best game ever.

Shhhhhhhhh...........mother fncker, if you let everyone see the truth, they price is going to double.

#5681 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

and the rightwingers hate Alex Baldwin.

They just have to learn to stay out of his parking space (or get punched in the face).

No one can hate a man that has given $20m of his own earnings to help disadvantaged children.

#5706 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Can we hate him for calling his daughter a pig and being abusive to his wife?

If you are the type of guy who wants to be known for standing up for women & children, yes.

#5707 1 year ago
Quoted from Spacemanratso09:

You can’t turn his voice off.

That was not Alec, it was Tim Kitzrow doing the Shadow's voice on the pin.

(with a little sample of Shatner yelling out "Khan!")
