What up with dat Elvira?

Shes coming

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

The music / theme never gets old.
Grandpas basement lab, spot as a bash toy,
The house, Eddie looking for wolfie, chase shot.. The car, and Herman himself..!
Ive got Munsters on the Brain.
Never saw these!
» YouTube video
» YouTube video

I got Munsters on the brain too Art. This theme has so many cool things that they could do that its insane. I would love to see Lyman on code. If he is this game is going to be a smash hit guaranteed!

#83 2 years ago
Quoted from Budman:

I’m seriously considering holding off a Ghostbusters Premium purchase to see the finished product of this title. Considering the last couple of games Stern has produced it seems to me this could be a real winner...... hope the cabinet and playfield art is similar to AS/ GB / IM and not SW.

I would definitely wait and see if it were me.

#104 2 years ago
Quoted from FLpinball:

Really hoping this is the next Stern!

Its not the next game unfortunately. Deadpool is supposedly next.

#116 2 years ago
Quoted from drsfmd:

People here have criticized Lonnie for code, but the most recent TWD update came out more than 3 years after the machine was released...
Either way, it's a theme that longs for JJP... Stern will just screw it up.

Go buy a JJP game then and leave this thread to people who like Stern Pinball and The Munsters please.

#117 2 years ago
Quoted from drsfmd:

Point being that it's not fair to bash Lonnie when Lyman is still making substantial changes to code 3 years after a game was released.
Frankly, Stern shouldn't be releasing *any* game with incomplete code. Code updates should be reserved for bugs, not features.

Dont feed the Trolls guys for real because its just going to derail this thread.

#121 2 years ago
Quoted from Rolls-Royce:

Definitely a Munsters Pinball should be in black & white... and everything in it.

This is tough for me big time. I dont think i really want a all black and white pinball machine for sure, but i also cant imagine The Munsters being anything other than black and white. Whatever it is, i can't wait to see it. I am so excited about this games possibilities!

#136 2 years ago
Quoted from dsmoke1986:

Yawn...Zero interest in this theme. The show hasn't been in syndication since the 80's; no one under the age of 30 knows what the Munsters are...Is there a new movie or re-branded show coming out?

If you have no interest in this theme then why on earth are you here?

Quoted from Jackalwere:

I'm all in on Munsters, I think it will be a great theme just like TAF. But frankly I'm surprised they aren't going with something far more current and popular like Stranger there's a theme that's just begging for a pinball machine and it's one of the hottest properties in Hollywood.
Regardless I'll be picking up Elvira AND Munsters, Stern is going to get a bunch of money from me, damn them!

Same here! I also want IMDN too, im going to have to get a second job!

Can’t wait to see and hear about this game. Could be such a cool title, so hopefully Stern throws a ton into it like IMDN.

Amen! Borg has supposedly said that this is going to be his best design ever. I hope he is right because that would be nothing but great news for us, because his games are already awesome.

#213 2 years ago
Quoted from Macca101010:

Would be nice if it had more than 2 flippers as well.
Seeing Spot the dragon coming out of the stairs would also be a nice touch.

3 or 4 flippers would definitely be nice. Maiden with its 4 flippers was definitely a breath of fresh air and made people get excited about pinball again.

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.

Hmm......that would be good news if true!

#245 2 years ago

Holy shiiiiit!!! Am i allowed to say that on here? Who cares i said it anyways....i have a feeling that this game is going to be Monster Bash/Adams Family on steroids!! I am stoked for this game big time.

#251 2 years ago
Quoted from dnapac:

When expectations are this high..there will always be disappointment. Love the theme, but the designers are least on pinside. Let the b1tch1inng begin.

I haven't been let down by a Stern game in a long time personally. The 2 flipper games were getting a little stale and IMDN was refreshing because it is different but i love how Stern makes their games. They always have a good theme and fun gameplay. With all of the creative things that they could do with this theme, i do not think we will be seeing a disappointment at all. John Borg has never disappointed me yet and the code should be solid with Dwight on it. Nothing but high hopes here.

#253 2 years ago
Quoted from dnapac:

I have 2 Stern games...and nothing but good from/for Stern. I hope this is a home run. But, pinside tends towards “you ruined my childhood! It could have been this”...ala, Star Wars...just pinside reality. Again, I love the theme!

Well you are definitely going to get some of that on here for sure. Some people wouldnt be happy if Stern shipped all of their games with a million dollars stuffed inside the cabinet. They definitely have a few letdowns here and there but over all they make good games i think.

I think SW was a little bit of a letdown because people were expecting such big things but all in all it was still a good game. It just seems like they could have been more creative. I think The Munsters is going to be done up good. I really get that feeling. We will know soon looks like.

Geez i hope you're right. After seeing Maiden and then seeing all the usual 2 flipper games it would be great.

I agrer 100%. Theres nothing wrong with 2 flipper games but the upper flippers on IMDN are a lot of fun.

#266 2 years ago

Give us 3 flippers Gary!

Guys why do i have this feeling that The Munsters is going to be something super special like IMDN is? Im trying not to get my hopes up too much because i dont want to get let down but this pin has so much potential because of what can be done with the theme and who the people are that are involved in it, that i can't help to be excited about it! I cant wait to see this game.

Quoted from Peanuts:

Here are the different works of Christopher Franchi for Moebius on The Munsters. I think that gives a good indication of what can be expected for this pinball in terms of artworks.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Ohhh.....that is just beautiful and i hope that we see something like that!!! I could absolutely live with that art there for sure.

#327 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

I'm nobody but I've heard rumblings from others who have connections that this game is set to wow you. Coding, looks etc..... It's going to impress.
I have absolutely no interest in this theme but I wanted to pass that along for those looking forward to it. I have very high expectations.

Ive heard the same thing delt31. Ive also seen a few people mention on here that it is going to have Kapow BM66 type pricing too and if that is true i just dont think i will be a buyer because that seriously ticks me off. Yeah its only 1500 more or whatever but im already at my limit pretty much right now and id probably just say screw it and not buy one. I hope those rumors arent true because this is really a dream theme for me kind of.

#330 2 years ago
Quoted from Sethman:

Beatles is KaPow
Munsters is normal 3 tier release.

Do you know for a fact that The Munsters is a normal 3 tier release or are you just assuming?

#331 2 years ago
Quoted from arcademojo:

I'll be waiting on a 2nd hand game. Already priced out of NIB and if it's Kapow pricing I might have to wait for a 3rd hand game. But I thought The Beatles was going to be the Kapow game not Munsters.

The Beatles is definitely a Kapow game from what i understand. That is why i was surprised to hear that this game may have inflated pricing. It has been mentioned a few times in here that it could be that way, i just hope that its not true. That would be such a bummer.

#333 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

From the folks I have heard from this is a tier 3 gave like the others.

I pray that your sources are correct because i want this game so bad i cant stand it.

#336 2 years ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

It is 3 tier.. art is gonna blow your mind

Awesome! I cant help but to smile when i hear stuff like this but im trying to keep my hopes and expectations to a minimum in fear of being let down but i know that this game could be epic ao easily that its not even funny.

We better not get a Herman Munster bobblehead for a toy like the Deadpool one because this theme deserves much better than that. If i see something like that i may do something crazy like set all of my pins on fire!

Quoted from FalconPunch:

Guys and Girls.
Please understand that posting images can put certain jobs at risk. Questions get asked, fingers get pointed, and it is not fun for anyone.
So if you actually LIKE the people that work on these projects and want them to retain their job then its a good idea to keep certain stuff not posted public.
If you don't like these people and want Mr Photoshop copy and paste stock art to rear his ugly head then go ahead and post away.

Why would these images put anyones jobs at risk? If they aren't the ones that leaked them its not their fault. If they are the ones that leaked them then they put their own jobs at risk so that would be their fault.

#375 2 years ago

I would like the images me ; )

I didn't save them or i would send them to you, hopefully someone else will. They look nice if theyare in fact real pictures.

Deliberate leak to poach sales from Monster Bash
No way that gets out on accident!

I would say there is a very good chance that you are right iceman. All i know is i can't wait to see this game and it better not have any cheap azz generic bobblehead toys. This game has to have nice figurines on it, no exceptions. Better be a Grandpa's basement also!

#544 2 years ago
Quoted from NPO:

1992 TAF.....come on now. Got to do better than that ; ).

The Munsters and The Adams Family both came out in the mid 60’s i believe. Yes ther was a adams family movie in 1991 but its still about The Adams Family that everyone watched back in the 60’s. If they made a Munsters movie right now would it make you like the pin thats coming out better? There are rumors about a new Munsters TV show coming back out actually.

#552 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

The last one was TERRIBLE. I hope they do a LOT better if they're trying another Munsters TV show again...

Im not sure if its going to happen or not but there was some talk of it. I would love to see some of these old shows come back. They would probably screw it up though like you said. The biggest thing i hate about todays tv shows is the commercials. A 30 minute show has 15 minutes of commercials.

#555 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

They shipped just over 10k pins in 2017.

IMDN is really going to boost sales for 2018 also. They are still in high demand from what im hearing.

#558 2 years ago
Quoted from cpr9999:

We will see if they let them stay posted.

They wont .....better save the images if you want to keep them lol

#594 2 years ago
Quoted from NPO:

Actually, I think so! I'll admit, I've been stuck on the 1991 TAF, and while I've seen still images from the b/w version, I have never felt the urge to see the source material. Raul Julia nailed that performance so well, I am too scared to look back any further ; ).

Dont be scared, buy those old DVD’s and enjoy them. The Adams Family was a cool show!

#614 2 years ago

You mean that you guys wouldn’t like to hear “Hey hey we’re the monkeys and people say we monkey around....but we’re too busy singing to put anybody down”..........over and over and over again??

#649 2 years ago

I truthfully dont want a lower playfield because i just dont like them. You dont have to have a lower playfield to have grandpas basement. That could be shown on animation after shooting the ball into the basement.

#685 2 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

Make no mistake
I want a SW
Just not enough to actually buy one
It’s hard to explain

Its not hard to explain at all, you’re a tight ass!

#687 2 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

There’s some truth to that my friend
But it doesn’t apply to this scenario I promise.
I bought Aerosmith *after* the Star Wars reveal so it wasn’t about money/space
SW disappointed me so much I almost called Stern to complain lol

I know and i feel ya believe me. SW is NOT a bad game at all and its kinda fun honestly. I just think most people had higher expectations for it and were let down because it seems like its kind of stripped down a little and it just killed the mood for many people. SW is definitely not a bad game though. If they would have just threw a few nice toys and figurines in there i think people would have been alot happier with it.

#730 2 years ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

So, I don't really have the space or the money for the Munsters. Saving up for a different NIB... But, this thread has me excited regardless, as I'm a huge fan of the original series. In fact this thread got me so excited I bought the dvd box set from amazon. Working my way through the episodes now.I'm almost to the last episode of the original Marilyn.
One thing I'll say about this pin. And I do hope to get one, one day... I think it could look really amazing. And while I said I'm not currently buying old pins. My dream pin is Creature from the Black Lagoon... And I got to tell you all. Think about how amazing a Creature, next to a Munsters, next to a Monster Bash and next to at least one Elvira would be. My brain would just explode at the sheer awesomeness. One day I'll have that lineup... One day...

The Munsters could very well end up being better than Elvira 3. It has the right team of people on it and the right theme to be a Monster pun intended.

#748 2 years ago
Quoted from Jackalwere:

What is considered Dwight's best coded game? I know he worked with Keith on LotR and TSPP. GoT? GB? T2? STtNG?

Has to be GOT and SW i would think.

Quoted from Gost2dp:

This might have the potential for me to look at this instead of wanting a ghost busters premium. Not sure yet. I almost have enough saved, actually enough saved, but want to buffer my savings account before making a purchase.

Definitely wait for Munsters to show up and then make a decision. Also have you played IMDN? So many great choices right now. Its a great time to be a pinball fan!

#883 2 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I really feel this pin will need a Mansion topper.

Agree one million percent!

#888 2 years ago

Even the car wouldnt be bad as the topper but the mansion would probably be ther best. It has to be one of the two though i think.

#889 2 years ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

I just played a ghostbusters pro. And while I loved it... It did give me a little bit of pause. I do want a premium, so its not apples to apples, but I think still a good enough experience to judge...
And wow, that flipper gap is tough.. Yes, I know if I owned it, I'd get use to it and figure it out better... But, wow...
I really love the art, callouts and animations for Ghostbusters and the music too!!!!
The modes though I think are way too linear. I kind of wish they'd make them more random. As it is, I'm always doing the same modes over and over, cos I suck at the game. Which is funny as I scoffed at some people when I said that the game was too linear. But, until you play it, you really can't tell how annoying it is. It's not bad... Its just the high difficulty I think exacerbates this.
So if Munsters has amazing code, and great gameplay... I could be swayed to put off the ghostbusters purchase for a bit.

I think you are spot on in your thinking. The flipper gap is rough for sure but you can move the outposts in and that helps on the side drains a little and kinda helps you forget about the flipper gap a little. Ghostbusters will also make you a better player because you have to hit your shots or its going to be drain city for you. I personally love my GB Premium but i would wait and see what Munsters has to offer. Its not far away so you may as well wait right?

#891 2 years ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

Well, also I am not rich. So I don't have all the money for either right now... Each month I get a little closer though. Can't really complain though. I have spent and paid for 2/3 of what my car costs on pinball this year. And I don't drive a beater. I drive a nice, decent car. But, I don't have any desires on owning expensive cars... Expensive pinballs... HECK YEAH!!!!!

Im the same way buddy, my car is paid for and im gonna drive it for at least another five years and not have a car payment, that way i can buy more pinball machines. Ive bought alot of games lately because ive been on a mission to have a nice gameroom. I never dreamed when i started that i would have as nice of a collection as i have in this short of time. If you set your mind to it, it will happen faster than you think. I got room for one more game and then its sell a game to buy another if there’s something that i gotta have. Im glad im almost to that point because i need to slow down.

#895 2 years ago
Quoted from Charliew65:

pinside setting themselves up for disappointment......again

Not really, we just wont buy if it sucks. Pretty simple really.

#901 2 years ago

I havent seen many lower playfields that i like so if its stupid i may go pro as well. I cant buy day one anyway so im gonna have plenty of time to see all the models and study them.

#935 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

it's Kapow, so it will be bend you over a barrel-time on price.

You got that right and for that reason they can stick it up their asses just like i told them to on BM66. I wouldn't buy a Beatles pin though even if it was at a cheaper price.

#950 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

No way. I'd have KISS LE again any day over any current flavor of Deadpool. (I'm not great about keeping my collection updated on pinside. Moves too much. I'm a recovering pin addict and have limited myself to max of 2 at any given time, so there's a lot of churn)

I actually really like Kiss alot and id own one too. It gets kind of a bad rap imo.

#1592 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

A few weeks ago I would have said Munsters, if done right, would be my next game.
But then CGC came out with MBr (priced quite nicely) then they reeeeally got my attention with the recent AFMr price drop. Holy Shit!
AS took like 2 years to finish. Any rumors on how long it will take to finish Munsters? Does anyone ever get intel about that?
Anyone else apprehensive about Munsters pricing? Will Stern raise prices? Hold steady? Lower? Inquiring minds want to know.

They will not lower prices guaranteed, but if they keep raising them they are going to start losing customers real soon im afraid, me being one of them. I would wait and see what Munsters looks like before jumping in on a MBR. I have a feeling that Munsters is going to be a must have game!

#1601 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

Stern lowered the MAP a few games back.
Honestly the $400 color rom is the #1 reason I’m not on the CGC bandwagon. When Stern makes a legit Pro they’re about $1K less than CGC CE. But when Premium is the way to go with Stern that’s when CGC CE + Color rom shines a bit more.
First world problems. Woe is me. I better post about my delimma here
It sure feels like a $5,999 Monster Bash is move to take market share.
Are we finally at the point where competition drives up quality & drives down prices?
In terms of waiting for Munsters that was my plan but then I remembered it’s best to wait 2 years after release when it’s a Stern. That’s a lot of waiting! You could argue those days are behind us but we heard that with Avengers.
Maybe CGC will release Elvira when Stern releases theirs lol.

That may be true about the code PW but dont forget that MB has a shallow code also and its finished. Munsters will most definitely ship with a lot better code than MBR has.

#1623 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Wrong again and par for the course

Im just glad he hasnt went on a big GB rant. Its coming soon though i can feel it!

#1636 1 year ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

Couldn’t agree more! It’s unbelievable what they give us for the high dollars we give them. JJP on the other hand gives us a great deal more in light shows, sounds, motorized toys that interact with the ball, quality, code and depth. Although I wish their prices we’re lower as well.

Yeah and i played Dialed In and WOZ a couple of days ago and was very underwhelmed as well. They werent bad games but DI sure isn't 9k good either and WOZ was just ok. Stern games are much more fun in my opinion.

#1652 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

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

Better game than IMDN?

#1728 1 year ago

Team Stern deserve a well earned break.

Man I wish that you ran the company that i work for. They work our asses into the ground and just keep doing it and doing it. They could care less if we are in here having to work 12 hours swing shift every day forever. I always gotta laugh at them though when they act like safety is their #1 priority and when they talk about family values and stuff. Of course when you do that though they think you are an asshole and not a team player. I guess my 35 years of service and only missing 3 or 4 days of work during all that time means nothing to them.

Oh well enough ranting, bring on The Munsters!

#1797 1 year ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

@ 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 !

Thanks buddy! I always do a good job and take pride in what i do, even when i hate the place because thats just my nature.and how that i was raised. Where i wlork at was at one time considered to be one of the best places to work in the whole area, now they cant even get people to apply here lol. Things have changed alot over the years thats for sure.

It sucks though working at a place where everyone hates their job hourly and salary both, talk about a bunch of angry people and bad attitudes. They went to the tiered wage scale and nobody wants to work here for what they start out at now. You add that to the fact that a big percentage of people just dont want to work anymore and alot of people cant pass a drug test and you just cant fill jobs.

This place just had 20 people set to interview and only 8 of them showed up. One guy walked out of the interview when he found out it was shift work, 5 failed their drug test so we got two new employees out of 20 lol. Also only about half the people that they hire will stay once they hire in. I've never seen the job market as good as it is right now. There's something wrong when you cant find young guys to work for 60-100K a year.

Quoted from Budman:

I’m in on a Premium if there is no lower ( Granpa basement) section.

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.

#1804 1 year ago
Quoted from Budman:

I talk to a lot of companies and they ALL are experiencing the same worker attitude and unfilled job positions you describe.

I hate to say it because it pisses people off, but these younger generations just dont want to work anymore. Im not talking about everyone of course but alot of them are just lazy as hell. I know alot of young guys that work hard also but i know alot more that wont hit a lick.

My company is telling all the employees to try snd find people who want a job here and to have them fill out an application. I honestly can't find anybody because everyone i know says they wont work like i do. Man i wish that i had that option to be that way. Its awfully cold here in Ohio right now though and i really like to eat so i guess i better keep on working because being hungry and homeless would suck. My old hound dog loves to eat also so i gotta keep plugging away for him as well. I worry about him more than i do myself honestly lol.

Got the clock from the Bradford exchange. Can’t wait for the pin!!!!!
[quoted image][quoted image]

I love that clock. They have a really cool Munsters lamp also.

#1808 1 year ago

Check out this Munsters lamp. Make sure you look at all of the pictures. Man $200.00 dollars though.

#1810 1 year ago
Quoted from crlush:

Is it a cuckoo clock? Looks pretty cool

It says every hour it plays the Munsters theme song and the lights flicker.

#1813 1 year ago

I want the clock and the lamp both so bad i cant stand it. Why did i have to see this? WHY....WHY...WHYYYYYY???

#1819 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

Because you must!!! (I have no table in the room for the lamp...yet)...
Side - decided to look up definition of "cuckoo clock", as no pin pics to stare at yet (I collect watches, and was curious).....
"A cuckoo clock is a clock with a door from which a toy cuckoo comes out and makes noises like a cuckoo every hour or half hour." (Collins English)
I don't want that....want a Munsters "Kooky" clock....

My grandma many years ago gave me an original cuckoo clock with the bird that pops out and then a lady came out and she spins around while it plays music and for the life of me i dont know what i did with it. Im thinking i might have given that to my uncle but i need to find out because that was really special and would be worth good money right now i bet.

Also my uncle used to collect watches but i dont think hes into it anymore and it seems like i remember him saying that he might sell some of them? I know he had some really nice ones so if you would be interested let me know and i will ask him about it.

Would like to see if so.

None at all that i am aware of. There were the leaked photos of the cabinet but i assume that you already saw those probably right?

#1822 1 year ago

Wish i had some playfield pics for you but i dont. All i know is the premium /LE is supposed to have a lower playfield and the Pro does not. All rumors of course.

#1825 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

wow!!! grandpa had a cool one where the bird came out, and some sort of carousel that spun w it....was amazing, but long gone now....grabbing that Munsters version now....too tempting
I've had to curb my watch pursuits as of about crazy $$$! I've got a nice selection, but thanks for the offer....
Unless a Munsters watch appears....

Yes that is the same clock that i had and it had the big long chains with the pinecone weights that made it run, it was awesome. I like that Munsters lamp just as much as i like the clock. Neither are worth their asking price but they are so awesome that i may get them anyways.

I’m confused
When is Munsters gonna happen?

Much sooner than your bank account wants it to! Your savings account is going to be a lot lighter very soon!

#2095 1 year ago

I wish the pics were a little more clear but i definitely like what im seeing so far as best as i can tell. The first thing i thought was it looks alot like Monster Bash but thats not a negative at all. Im super excited to see some high resolution pics and to see what the Premium and LE looks like. From what i see right now though im jumping in head first on this one!

#2123 1 year ago

Wonder what the 4 holes are for at the end of the left ramp /orbit? Im sure the pic was probably intentionally blurred to make us winder about all of this stuff. Nobody has a camera that shitty in today's world.

#2127 1 year ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

I don't see how this could have a lower playfield.... If it did you'd lose a lot of that nice playfield art.... Or would the lowerplayfield be really small and start below Grandpa... Don't know... But, I do like the playfield art. This machine should be a looker, and the mode list I saw seemed to hit all the important stuff. So this could be a really cool pin, and a great looking one.
But, as always gotta wait for both High Rez images and also the Prem and LE images.
I know I've said it before, but I really hate that EVERY game has 3 versions. That to me is beyond silly and stupid.

Im hoping the lower playfield has some really cool stuff in it and awesome lighting etc. If not i may just have to go Pro on this one here. I am NOT a fan of lower playfields at all, i hope they can make me change my mind on this game here.

#2317 1 year ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

Who cares about a marketing phrase of x many cornerstones a year, separate from contract or boutique? Anyone? That is just hype generation tactics in my book. The number one metric I care about is x number of machines produced per year, and hopefully that number has a positive slope and is going up. The Munsters will fill the line like any other title, they will sell the first run out, then it will go into the rotation, why does it have to fall specifically within this calendar year? As long as Stern is producing and selling machines, it means there is a demand. Which means pinball will be around at least another year. Do we care as players and enthusiasts that they hit their development target? I only care that more machines are being made. So if Munsters turns out to be epic, is that still a fail since it was delivered in January and not December? Investors might care, Gary may care, but me? Not so much. Just build more Pinball!!

I think Munsters is going to be epic i really do. I wont lie to you though, after seeing and playing MBR last night im lusting over it quite a bit. It may very well be the most beautiful pinball machine that ive ever laid my eyes upon!

#2319 1 year ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

I have a question for operators about unfinished code and machines. Would they want a new Munsters to put on route NOW, or a Munsters delivered 6 months from now with finished code? Is newness if the title more important than completeness of rules and code?

I think for operators that newness and theme is more important than code. These games with the exception of a couple usually ship with pretty good code. I also think stern realizes that a good code is very important to people these days and they seem to have stepped it up a notch in the coding department.

#2321 1 year ago
Quoted from RA77:

We are all down for some serious eye candy
The home run for The Munsters will be the sexy, popping Franchi art.
Smooth JB flow with a stack of cool shots. Awesome funny call outs !
The hype indicates the lower playfield may deliver the killer blow ?
If the lower playfield does deliver the goods, 2 flippers, targets, pop ?? subway, shute ? ( wow i'm buzzing, lol ). MuNST ( someone come up with a better acronym please ) stands to be a BIG seller !
the final piece will be cool audio. Really need you audio guys to deliver on this one
Finally Stern pinball
Can you please up the ante with build quality and develop sound mechanisms.
The electronics hardware looks sound, please provide support for this by providing schematics as promised.
I appreciate you listen to feedback and try to correct hardware issues.
Don't forget to treat the LE buyers with the complete suite of extras please.
Bring on The Munsters 2019 AWESOME !

I can't wait to see this game. I especially cant wait to see the Premium and LE versions. I hope it reveals in December.

#2323 1 year ago
Quoted from Bingovit:

Code is important even on our locations!
Guardians earned decent the first month and was horrible after that until the first good code update came around which added Cherry Bomb multiball and this made the game from very mediocre and a pretty poor earner to a great earner and people love it now!
So I would say code is also important for locations! That's just my 2 cents however

True but GOTG was one of those exceptions that i had in mind and another one would have been BM66. Of course code means something when you are talking about a game that has basically no code at all but generally most games i would say ships with a decent enough code for location play. Now for the really good player at his house that may be another story.

#2357 1 year ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

You’re right there is no threat because Stern’s copy and paste system, can’t be threatened. No other maker makes such simple no frills pinball tables than Stern. The great thing about Stern is their motto is: how good is good enough, cause we don’t care. I was at a pinball arcade and realize after playing the bank a dozen Stern’s that they all began to blur and seemed to play and be near the same table. Just a couple ramps, with some plastics throw here and there for a theme and relatively no motorized toys. DP with a slinky bash toy and IM with a lifting ramp. Not much at all in interactive toys. If the asking price were what they were just 7-8 years ago, then such a sparse amount of goodies is fine, but when. The asking price is double that of 7-8 years ago, shouldn’t we expect a great deal more? Even Stern’s boutique tables like Beatles and Primus cost an incredible $8,000.00 for not much at all. Cannot believe anyone would be sucked into paying that kind of money for so little in return. Those tables should only be no more than $3k to $4k tops.
We all need to vote with our money and just say no to Stern’s policy of giving very little in game toys, quality and code depth versus what other makers give us for our money spent. That would return pricing away from gouging us to being fairly priced again like it was just 7 years ago. Where Tron could be purchased NIB for $3,800. Hoping Munsters will reflect a change in offering and fair pricing, but it probably won’t. Maybe if Beatles does poorly Stern will rethink their strategy and return us to the good ol’ days Of pinball.

How much did you pay for that Houdini that you got? IMDN, TWD, GOT, GB, KISS, AS, AC/DC, MET, BM66 and many others all are just as good or better games than your Houdini. Your post is garbage and has no merit. Stern is kicking ass right now and making the funnest games around and Munsters will be a huge success i guarantee it! The only game Stern has made in the last few years that i consider a dud is Deadpool.

#2368 1 year ago
Quoted from Colehvac1:

Your right, stern really is kicking ass, they really worked the bugs out. I love what their doing and I like Deadpool, I don’t think it’s a dud at all.

There's a lot of people that like Deadpool so i get it. Im not really ragging on it, i just didnt care for it personally. I'm glad that you like it. Every game isn't for everyone, thats why im glad that Stern makes tons of games so that we can all enjoy something they have to offer.

#2369 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

crazy talk! One of Stern's best games in the recent past. Once you get the lock shot dialed it, it becomes a fun game with some more unique shots.
Code is coming along nicely also (still needs refinement but Tanio is a breath of fresh air)

#2478 1 year ago
Quoted from RA77:

The Munsters theme integration and gameplay will be awesome.
I think it's great Stern will wait to get the reveal right and smart marketing will pay off.
For some strange reason I picture the lower playfield with 1 flipper only, was still cool though.
I am happy to see QC has improved for Stern , considering the amount of machines they move there appears to be few reported issues. ? Checked DPLE the other day the finish was nice, however the games are getting lighter and I am not a fan of playfield cratering.
The only thing that is letting Stern down is their playfields and some new component build quality. Assembly team seems have it down.
The materials supply team need to go back to the factory in China and make sure the component quality improves.

1 flipper? Surely not.

#2480 1 year ago
Quoted from RA77:

Yeah hope im wrong

I do too. Why are you thinking that?

#2484 1 year ago

#2486 1 year ago
Quoted from arcademojo:

If Prem and LE have 4 flippers with both a lower and upper playfield it does sound like one flipper on each.

I dont think we will be seeing a 3 level playfield. That would be interesting though.

#2489 1 year ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

BL lower PF is kinda fun. I would like to see a simple lower playfield with one flipper and a loop. That's it. BK2k loop underneith that you rip over and over. Each loop takes an article of clothing off Lily on the backglass. If you miss, it drains back up top and she gets dressed. Even I would buy this Stern NIB for that.

I think Stern should hire you. You are a very creative thinker. Thinking like that could change pinball as we know it!

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.

well, if the start of production on some titles continues to end up being one year after the games reveal, then people might start caring.

Monster Bash is not as dark as your picture shows, not even close lol. I played a MBRSE a few weeks ago in a pretty dark room and it was just fine. I was surprised when i started seeing people complain about the lighting on it actually. My eyes arent nearly as good as they used to be and i didnt have any problems seeing the game at all.

#2654 1 year ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

Pinside is pinside: every game will have its detractors. People will bitch about The Munsters no matter what. Every game will have a troll critic, like Dialed In's Sinestro, and every game will have fangirls rating it a perfect ten because they bought it. We already have critics and fangirls over leaked pics.
"The wheels on the bus go round and round..."

I have a feeling that im going to be one of those fan girls rating it perfectly and I'll probably be saying OMG. ....STERNS BEST GAME EVER!!

It's just what i do when im excited over a new game, cant help it.

#2658 1 year ago
Quoted from Rolls-Royce:

When you buy a Pin... you never rate the new one 10/10?

I remember when i was fairly new here i started a thread called Could Ghostbusters be the best game ever, and then i changed it to Could Ghostbusters be “Sterns best game ever lol” I got hammered pretty good on that one by a lot of people but it is a great game imo still. I will say though that i rated all of my games high and i still rate them high well after their honeymoon phase.

I am super pumped for Munsters though because its one of my dream themes!

#2689 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

What is there to talk about? I've watched this thread for weeks...and's just a bunch of nothing and people talking about dumping money into something they don't even know what it looks like 100% yet. Never understood the 'stay on topic' people when there is essentially nothing 'on topic' to talk about. That's how a thread dies.

This thread ain’t dying untl we all see the game, then maybe it will die but not until then because we Munsters fans enjoy speculating and talking about the game that we are excited as hell about.

#2705 1 year ago

Seen some guy in a stream (young guy obviously) say that Munsters is a horrible theme and that its not going to sell worth a shit. He said theres like ten guys on pinside that keep talking about it and nobody else cares. He’s badly mistaken, this game is going to sell BIG if it turns out to be a good game. Only Stern can f*ck this up by not doing things right, the theme and the possibilities for this to be a huge success is all there for them.

#2743 1 year ago

I don't think any game should ship with a code thats as bare as BM66 was but at the same time i enjoy getting code updates also. It kinda feels like getting a new pinball machine when a new code drops.

#2754 1 year ago
Quoted from RA77:

Can't wait to see The Munsters Premo and LE The Pro as well
I just hope the team has some better QC and uses more reliable mechs.
I just spent another 2hrs tonight trying get my IMDNLE to play right.
IMDN is such an awesome game, just so disappointing that its let down by a couple of poor choices with mech design and some junk materials provided from supplier/s.
So far I have burned over 12hrs to get IMDN playing properly, so @ $80ph (conservative tech rate here ) that's almost a grand in time !
Pleased to say I am almost there.
It;s funny how it played well out of the box, then went to shit after a handfull of games.
So far I have less the 100 games and been spending most time trying to get Auto launch and power orb to function as intended.
I found lower pop fail tonight with broken wire between coil and lug.
Removed newton assy again, cleaned and adjusted. All working a lot better now.
IMDN requires some more code and a hardware fix for the auto launch and newton balls.
Anyway rant off about Maiden, no doubt you will hear about it again but i'll take it to the right thread.
The reason I bought the IMDN problems up here is I do not want to see Munsters fans spending more time under the hood than playing the game.
I think that's why i'm glad for the release delay because it's best to get the game right and be 100% sure owners and distributors will not be left with headaches.
if Stern is reading this please don't leave your customers in a bad place with their new Munsters
Get on to your component providers and get em to beef things up, not trim them down,
We want good design with reliability please.
It's not fair to new pinball owners, in particular those who are not mechanically or technically minded to have to deal with this crap.
Get it sorted before shipping please Stern.

Amen to all of that! Been working on my IMDN tonight as well. My mummy ball is sticking and like an idiot i boogered up the switch closest to it on the sarcophagus lock so now looks like i may have to pull the sarcophagus out to put a new switch in. Pretty sure this is going to be a major pain in the ass. My fault but if the newton balls wasnt shitty i wouldnt have been messing with it in the first place. The Newton balls need to be redesigned and Stern should ship out two of them to every Premium and LE owner out there! Absolutely horrible design and they fuckin knew it and shipped the games out anyway. Im a big supporter of Stern but that pisses me off big time.

#2758 1 year 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.

Why would you suggest that? Im perfectly capable of working on my games and i will get it fixed as soon as i get a new switch. The newton balls are a horrible design period. It has nothing to do with pros or premiums. They could have put newton balls in the pro just as easy. They need to redesign the damn newton balls plain and simple because they are a major fucking fail.

#2765 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Because it’s true. Just saying don’t be surprised if Munsters needs lots of tweaking too.

We arent talking about tweaking though. We are talking about a design that is just horrible. Anyone that buys a Premium with more features can expect more tweaking yes, but should Premium owners also expect and accept poorly designed mechs? I dont think so.

Erik with all due respect, you don’t know what you are talking about because you dont own a IMDN Premium.. These newton balls suck dude. Messing up the switch was my fault and thats all on me, but the newton balls are total shit.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I’m 100% aware of the issues of Maiden Premium. I’ve helped people fix theirs.
Premiums run the risk of needed minor to major tweaks/fixes. It’s a fact of life.

Ok then please tell us all how to make the newton balls work good because id love to hear it. Ive actually had good luck keeping mine in adjustment and working properly after loctiting them. I now have a new problem with one of the newton balls. Its nothing that i cant fix i am sure, and if i have to i will buy a replacement, but its still a shitty design that could have been much better.

What all have you had to do to a newton ball other than adjust the leaf switch by the way? Also poor mechanical engineering is NOT a fact of life sorry.

How is buying used going to make a poorly designed mech better??

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Text me later and I’ll be happy to help. But in these cases you’ll need hands on help. Every game is a little different.
In the meantime call stern tech support to see if they have any suggestions or updated parts to send.

Im going to call Chaz but im 100% sure that they haven’t redesigned the newton balls. If they still arent putting metal posts in MET games instead of plastic ones 6 years later, i can guarantee you that they will never make a better newton ball switch lol.

Quoted from flynnibus:

Did you get the pointed studs for the newton ball mech?

Yesh my game came with the pointed studs actually. The problem I'm having now is the mummy newton ball when hit wont go back to its original resting position. Im gonna take it apart and clean it and look at it and see why its catching but they are sending me a new one also. I know some people are polishing them out real smooth to make them work better. Im sure that i can fix it probably.

Thanks guys I appreciate you. I’ll be looking into it soon.

Quoted from Zablon:

Is this part of their forced 'buy this or you don't get our next game' thing? Because this seems like a really bad way to promote a new product. There is no way I'd put a pre-order in for a machine that has so little information.

Stern isnt asking anyone to put pre orders in and they never ever give out any kind of information on their games before they launch. Anything you see has been leaked.

Come on Stern lets go!!

Quoted from cpr9999:

Stern might have missed their window for extraordinary sales on Munsters:
1. After Xmas - money will be tight for purchases like these
2. Missed the window for good sales on Munsters by releasing Beatles first and competition releasing MB remake
3. Stock market has took a major hit - so will consumer confidence
What say you Pinsiders! How bad will sales get hit by Stern’s order of priority????????

I dont think any of this stuff is going to affect the sales of Munsters pinball but im tired of waiting i can tell you that much. The only good thing is in my case is, i cant buy one just yet anyways. If this game turns out great though its going to be in my basement soon. If it doesn't turn out great, MBRSE here i come!

Quoted from Budman:

Told Trent that I’m in on a Pro ...... how about the rest of you?

I want to see the pro and Premium models both before making a decision. This is a dream theme for me!

Quoted from NoQuarters:

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.

I agree with Pinmister that its never a good idea to go in blind but you make a good point also. Borg makes killer games and i think the risk is extremely low that this game ends up being a dud.

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 think you are probably correct. I would hope so anyway as long as this damn game is taking to get released!!

Quoted from vireland:

It's Dwight. Star Wars pretty incomplete at launch. Ghostbusters pretty seriously broken for 2 years. I'm generously estimating 0.84, so Dwight, whatever state the code is in, call it at least 0.85 to make sure I'm wrong.

You may be right also. He doesn't seem to get in any hurry thats for sure.

Damn thats quite a list there! lol

If I broke out my guitar and strummed a few bars of kumbaya how fast would I get moderated?
