Quoted from usandthem:

If this game is such a bomb, the first premium that shows up around here for pro pricing, I'm in. I love this game.

I think you will have a long wait.

I have an LE, it’s always fun to play. All of the Premium buyers with soon experience this.

I’ve played a lot of games on the LE at Boxcar Greensboro and it’s a very fun pin. Nice layout and I enjoy the lower playfield. Premium is definitely a cool looking pin.

Just got back from TPF and the Munsters pin was a hit!!! A really fun game with some good shots. Munster Madness took some work but was really cool!!!

You get to the final munster madness or just the mini version on level one? The new code really made the game so much better.. not sure what all changed but I've only seen the level 1 mini madness mode a handful of times over few hundred games and no where close to the full munster madness after level 2 modes. The game is really good and its the most ive played a pinball in a while.

I don’t know. @6K seems to be a pretty common price at which Stern premiums settle, even the best of them. See AC/DC or Walking Dead. Munsters doesn’t seem well-received by the community, so it certainly doesn’t seem like the premium would settle at a higher price point than the “desired” games.

I think the difference here will be the black/white art package. I think the Munsters Premiums will appeal more to those that are big fans of the show and don’t expect to see a lot for resale except for ops rotating games because I don’t expect it will sell well. Maybe there will be a wave of buyers who think they want the lower PF and change their minds but I don’t see it. If Munsters Premium indeed settles around $6k, I’m not buying one unless I’m 99% sure it’s a keeper.

I think it’s the Pros that are going to drop more quickly. I’m a little surprised by how many Pros have already been up for sale. Certainly a few want to upgrade editions but it seems like the “90’s like code” while a good idea for ops and casual players, is hurting/will hurt collector sales. As recent Pros go, it’s a nice one but $600-$900 losses (and tax) in about a month seems steeper than they should be this early.

I see in another thread people are selling Pro's to upgrade to Premiums and LE's.
I guess we will see on the numbers over time.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for the bottom falling out of this game if i were you because thats not going to happen. I also dont understand why you think this game isnt going to sell well? Its selling like hotcakes and has been a big hit for Stern so far.

I spent 3 days at TPF. I heard and joined in so many conversation over this pin, ladies and gentelmen of all types loved this pin, wasn't ever an un-occupied pin. Maybe Dwight's vision was right.. It is blast to watch someone struggle on lower playfield as the timer counts down while needing to qualify grandpa. Great multiplayer game like TZ.

That was me. And 6K is not the "bottom falling out". That's par for the course for just about all Stern premiums, even the best ones.

You cant buy any of mine for 6k.

Yep, heard the same comments at TPF that most really loved it, and I didn't see one person get Munster Madness over the 3 days.
Let's also see what is included in the next code update that is currently being tested.

Munster madness is tough to get to now ... the mini version is possible (still difficult with .96 code) but the the full Munster madness is gonna be difficult to see now .

Quoted from sepins:

OK...Let's give it 1/5th.
Smart shoppers are getting Premium for $1200 more than a pro.
Decent value.

I thought street prices were $5600 on pro and $7300 on premium, so $1700 there.

Im not sure what was changed on .96 but ive only seen the mini version of madness a few times in hundred or so games... and no where close to munster madness level 2

That's about right .. give or take few hundred each way
