Quoted from Palmer:

Pinball browser only works on Stern SAM, Spike, and Williams WPC I think

I used pinball browser on RZ. Worked great. I’m not sure about the newer board sets, especially the Pinotaur or whatever with HWN. We’re likely stuck with the original sounds, but that’s probably a good thing.

Nope. #63 for reference.

Big fan of this game. But don't understand the middle (asylum?) playfield? Looks like 3 or four ways off of it. What's the objective? And what is there is shoot at on that playfield? Maybe it needs a "butt pretzel"

#1857 3 months ago

sorry, what is there to shoot at?

#1858 3 months ago

Now I just need the correct machine to put it on!

Looks like troops on the ground at the SFGE who are doing setup are reporting that there is 1 Halloween and 1 Ultraman game on the floor. Can't wait to see both of them tomorrow afternoon!

Looks like there is a cover on the topper on the Halloween motor which is awesome

#1869 3 months ago

I'm still confused how they got the UL listing.

I heard it's a real bitch to get.

Anyway, wish I was closer and could play a few!

Probably no ul listing unless it’s specified

I believe the goal is to hit each standup target, then the scoop, then the exit to the shooter lane as a bonus.

Wonder why no knife shooter rods on these?

Quoted from jk2171:

No special shooter on UM either. They probably are just saving them for the games they are building. They do look good! Can’t wait for my Halloween!!

#1878 3 months ago

I love that they did the speaker panel in gold too.

I can finally picture the knife going through the translite from the pics above. The dark part of the translite must be open and that giant knife just slips on in. It’s going to look epic

Oh man, if you are right HELL YES! Would make sense since it appears the knife is full size. Why else would it be!

#1882 3 months ago

What do mean by “open”? Do you think the dark part of the backglass is translucent and that you’ll see the knife go into the head through the glass? Might be cool to mod the tip with a red led strip so it lights up like a bloody stab wound in the pumpkin.

Spooky please put a cover over the topper motor. I wish the backglass still had Halloween written on it though. My only two gripes. I understand why you didn’t want it written on the backglass plus the topper, but to me looks weird. Not used to that.

Maybe Spooky will let you swap it out?

Hmm, going back through pics, seems like the slit is fairly far back. Who has another Spooky pin here that can measure how far back in the head the backglass sits?

#1887 3 months ago

So you want the backglass AND the topper to say John Carpenters Halloween? That’s absurd. It was an excellent decision for Spooky to omit the title on the backglass. Classy design choice. I hate seeing games like TMNT or JP where the topper is just the same stupid logo for an extra $1000.00

Also, no one is EVER going to be looking at the side of the topper and it would be easy enough to make a cover yourself if it bothered you that much.

#1888 3 months ago

The line between the mouth and nose on the pumpkin for the speaker and armour has been annoying me since I first noticed it which was straight away, does it really need to be there? Nobody has mentioned it yet. Must be just me.

Out of the two, Halloween looks much better to me

Ha ha no I like that, now my complaint is the right eye isn’t Michaels head lol

#1893 3 months ago

My complaint is this is too violent. Can’t Michael just talk it out with Loomis? Does it have to be about Halloween? What about 4th of July? Knives are dangerous. Can’t we use, I don’t know, something more kid friendly like a pillow fight? Other than these things I’ve got 25 more issues with this pin.

I keed, I keed!!

He's like the comedian that keeps telling the same joke cuz he thinks its funny.

It is funny, unless you are a dr customer, then its yet another pain point! But they are a tough bunch, cause there are many many jokes/painpoints to be had when dealing with RM/jpop.

Theres one guy putting bobblehead Michaels and cartoony Halloween stuff all over his! Should look swell!

Aww crap. That's going to set my OCD off big time! I get the want for symmetry in most cases, but not in a case like this. It's like when people put on a Star Trek emblem mirrored. It's just wrong. I really hope that's a separate piece and we are able to flip it.

Is this a real complaint? No. But it's one of those goofy little things that will slightly annoy me. That pumpkin is so iconic that I'm really surprised Spooky (or the license) would let mirroring it fly.

#1898 3 months ago

Was thinking what about a joint mod
Came across a clip and thought what about a mode with them being followed in the car with the tune Don’t fear the reaper which is playing on the car radio

The grills are definitely separate and should be powder coated on both sides, so you should be able to flip it around.

I am just not feeling it. Everything looks great but that speaker panel needs something. Too much empty space of just gold, like it needs some accents/detail.

Not a deal breaker by any means, it just looks off to me.
