Quoted from Robertstone0407:

I heard strong source tomorrow reveal, only a LE and premium model

Same, I heard "Official" announcement will be tomorrow...

#154 1 year ago

REALLY excited for this title and I just got my Munsters LE 3 weeks ago!!!

#1371 1 year ago

Off Stern's FB page:

Stern Pinball - A lot of people asking for Black Knight... first public viewing... MGC, Milwaukee Wisconsin!!

#1419 1 year ago

Was told LE's to start shipping end of April!!!

#1420 1 year ago
Quoted from pascal-pinball:

Yeah I was thinking the same. If the player use the sword to fight against the black knight, why is he holding it in the artwork?
Only the pro artwork seems correct then...

Pro and LE...

#1440 1 year ago
Quoted from jwo825:

I'm ordering MOTU LE, sight unseen, if that ever drops.

Agree, I'll prepay now to help fund it....

#1457 1 year ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Now I can never unsee this...
The swords Needs to stay in the picture so you'd have to rotate his hand (fingers) a bit.

Just like Lily's shoulders on the Munsters LE... Every time I play my machine it pisses me off... LOL Looks like Herman smashed her head down below her shoulder blades...... uggg

#1495 1 year ago
Quoted from s1500:

I'm guessing it would be easier to rotate the fist counter clockwise a few degrees, as rotating the sword would get in the way of the title. But hey, if the game's fun it's all good.

I'm sure these are already submitted and produced. LE's I was told today are shipping late April...

Hate to say it but what you see is probably what we are getting... Live debut is at MGC in 2 weeks.............

#1573 1 year ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

How many seconds did you try?
He said multiple times very, very soon and he might spill the beans later after a few drinks.
No exact date yet.

Stern posted a reply on their FB page the first public showing will be at MGC in a few weeks... April 12th thru the 14th.

#1634 1 year ago
Quoted from johnnyutah:

Really looking forward to a stream of this machine-

Agree, Hopefully before MGC in 2 weeks!

#1662 1 year ago

Stern post a few days ago it will make its first public debut at MGC...

#1676 1 year ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

speakers look a little different compared to previous LE's are the still JBL?

Munsters has Kenwood now...

#1698 1 year ago
Quoted from Graysonsdad:

"15 Pinsiders have this game (LE) in their collection"
Some people are seriously jumping the gun.
It doesnt count until it's in the door and plugged in.

Counts when I pay for it... LOL

#1754 1 year ago

Nice April Fools... lol Can you imagine the dimples that would create...

#1861 1 year ago

It's on the line.....

#1920 1 year ago
Quoted from crwjumper:

I paid for my LE today.
Come on Stern. I'm waiting!!!!
Will be a couple of the longest months of my life.

Same... Disty ask for payment... Now the wait.........

#1932 1 year ago
Quoted from Asael:

Ok, I hate STERN!!!! I don‘t have room or the Money for more games and now I have to find a way to buy this game.

Yup, I literally just got a Munsters LE a few weeks ago, I have a month to think of a good excuse why I bought this machine...

#2040 1 year ago

One thing that drives me kinda crazy is Stern using silver screws and clear or white zip ties. BUY BLACK ONES, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!

#2074 1 year ago

Off Stern FB... "#BKSOR Premium spotted in the factory today! Art package by the legendary Kevin O’Connor! #SternPinball #BlackKnight"

#2132 1 year ago

This will be my first Steve Ritchie game... I have 4 Borg pins and IMLE from Elwin. Metal music and a Medieval theme, it's a no brainer!!! VERY excited to get this LE in the house!!!!!!!

#2209 1 year ago

Today's the day!!! Pretty excited to see this beast in action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#2217 1 year ago
Quoted from BrewNinja:

In the April fools BK stream, Steve mentioned that there is a lot of risk in this pin. Stern basically said OK to an "unlicensed" theme (I use it in quotes because it technically licensed from Williams, but its not like a movie/band type license).

Agree, There is risk but this release is built around an established Black Knight license. So there is brand recognition... Not to mention the medieval/Metal vibe is still hot. You have GOT premiering this weekend which will help marketing a bit over the next 3- 4 months and help drive the subliminal theme.

I believe the financial reward could be somewhat higher for Stern. The licensing fees I am sure are substantially lower than normal and the machine doesn't appear to have anything overly expensive incorporated so it is possible that the margins for Stern could be higher.

I think the biggest risk is if the game doesn't meet the high expectations it could tarnish the end of a spectacular legacy for Mr Ritchie...

#2220 1 year ago
Quoted from BrewNinja:

There might be brand recognition for collectors/people in the scene, but location play is still their bread and butter. If operators don't buy it, it probably wont do well enough. From the looks alone the toys look awesome, so I don't see there being a problem in this specific case. Hopefully they don't disappoint.

Totally agree, I think this will do very well on location... Def an eye catcher!!! I can't wait to hear the attract call outs... Lotta potential there. LoL

#2237 1 year ago

30 minutes...

#2250 1 year ago

Stream is AMAZING, They are going to play an LE after the pro....

#2252 1 year ago
Quoted from soapblox:

was there some cool "fire" light on the back part of the playfield I saw?

Yep... Looks really good...

#2256 1 year ago

They just said on the stream they will be playing an LE next...

#2259 1 year ago

This Pro looks next level for Stern... AMAZING!!!

#2270 1 year ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Oh I must have missed where they said LE. The first time they said premium.

Yup NP, See LE... Can't wait to see it in action!!!

#2556 1 year ago
Quoted from Stones:

I wish they had that upper pf 100% working last night. I'm in on an LE, but fak….it looked they had more fun on the Pro than the LE. I am reconsidering my selection right now....looking forward to more streaming.....

I'm kinda in the same boat... But much prefer the art work and extras included on the LE. But the Pro looked REALLY fun.

#2758 1 year ago

Agree the flat plastics are not cutting it... Not a fan in the least...

#2774 1 year ago
Quoted from zucot:

Are there premiums at MGC? Anyone capture gameplay or try one?

There are quite a few videos posted on here...

#2783 1 year ago

I think in the MGC thread actually. There is one with Steve playing with Marcdaddy and a few of his friends I believe. They have a pre setup with JBL stand speakers...

Off Stern's FB. 1:30 mark...

#2931 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

When compared with Wonka, BKSoR needs more stuff. Stern should be thinking what else can we put in the premium and le models. It’s not much investment for Stern, but it would add value.
Lower playfield should have kickback added to left drain instead of ball save.
Upper playfield needs a 3 bank of timed drop targets added if possible, otherwise add WAR lane switches over top the ones below and allow another place to boost playfield multiplier.
Cabinet needs a bell added inside that is programmed to award bonus time multiball to the winner, allowing him some victory laps and a chance to run up his final score.

The game is already shipping.........

#3084 1 year ago
