    I've seen a few on here speculating that the next Stern after the recently leaked Aerosmith is going to be a new Star Wars. I read a while back on here that some thought it was going to be Batman 66, followed by Aerosmith, then Star Wars. What are the chances of these rumors being true since Batman 66 and Aerosmith ended up happening.

    I heard Star Wars to be late in 2017 with something else after Aerosmith

    I can see stern squeezing in a POTC VE since the Dead Men Tell No Tales comes out May 26th 2017... They have Star Wars in their back pocket and have a great relationship with Disney. I can't see them releasing it just to release it, they might wait for the trilogy to finish for a more complete story line and not base the pin around one movie. I'm pretty sure they know they will literally sell out every LE, SUPER DOOPER LE SUPER TRIPPLE DEATH STAR EDITION LE, YODA LE, HAN SOLO LE, DARK SIDE LE, JEDI LE, FROZEN MY BANK ACCOUNT IN CARBONITE LE It's literally PRINTING money for Stern this title no doubt about it. Despite prices people i hate to say it even non pin heads Star Wars collectors are NUTS and will gladly give Stern their hard earned cash for this title ! I have a feeling this title will ultimately end up being similar to AC/DC various models...and a LONGGGGG run to satisfy as many as they can so long as they retain the license.

    Yeah it's happening just a matter of when. Hope they get all the Playfield issues lined by then as I'd love to see what they come up with. Rumor is Steve Ritchie to design.

    #5 3 years ago

    They should make one for each movie in the trilogy. Imagine having all three lined up next to each other. One can dream anyway...

    #6 3 years ago

    man i seriously hope so.
    i just hope stern doesn't go crazy on price again but than again it's star wars, people will line up to buy this one.
    hope it's lyman on the code, that game has to be perfect.

    #7 3 years ago

    I'm very interested in a new Star Wars pin but am concerned of releasing one now with only one of the new trilogy released.

    Don't forget about the Collector's Editions.

    #9 3 years ago

    We already have Stern Stars. That's close enough for O-din and me.

    #10 3 years ago

    Ep. VII 2015
    Ep. VIII 2017
    *Ep. IX 2019 .... That's my guess, if this schedule holds true exactly 3 years from now is when you will see Star Wars trilogy based on the latest flicks, perhaps ( & hopefully) with some type of homage to the original movies. You have plenty of time as everyone knows it's not IF Star Wars gets released it's When... and I say 2019. Game will likely get revealed at expo in 2019 around the same time as now in October for a Christmas release. You gotta strike while the iron is hot and that's when it's gotta come out. I suspect the prem. Will have the existing LCD type set up you see in Batman / Aerosmith and the LE / SLE will have the entire back box as a huge LCD. I could totally also see this OR preying Jaws being a Wide Body. You're gonna need a bigger playfield . Sorry to get side tracked , The only thing I can see JJP IF they manage to acquire the license would be Harry Potter to compete with Star Wars at the time of its release. Both movies have a huge fan base following. Star Wars :The Pin etc I really wouldn't be surprised if it's being secretly worked on already for a 2019 release that's how big of a title it is. I'm sure many other Star Wars speculation, rumors, idea, finger crossing threads will continue to pop up leading into 2019...

    Wondering why you say that...That's def not what I've heard from a pretty reliable source.

    I'm sure Stern has some type of an agreement with Disney that's all
    I'm saying. Well let's see what Disney owns (probably missing some) ,

    Tron is Disney ... Stern
    POTC is Disney ... Stern
    Spider Man VE Disney ... Stern
    Avengers Disney...Stern
    X-Men Disney... Stern
    Iron Man VE Disney...Stern
    Avatar (likely you will see an VE with the new movies about to drop) Disney ... Stern
    Disney owns ABC which is what Batman was on...hmm makes you wonder.
    Aerosmith .. Disney has a rollercoaster in the park not sure relationship beyond that but Aerosmith Pin 2017...Stern
    Star Wars Disney........?????.
    *Toy Story 2018 will likely come out prior to Star Wars from stern.. you guessed it Disney.

    See the trend ?

    And side note I know it sounds crazy but I'd be willing to bet eventually Stern will make a Pin dedicated to the Disney World / Parks... I.e Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom. With a ton of rides, characters, etc it would make an epic Pin.

    Uh yeah, obviously I see the trend, but as I said the info I have is the relationship is not great and yes they have the license already for Star Wars but that doesn't meant they have a "great" relationship. My contact is pretty reliable and I've heard Disney hasn't been happy with some of the pins.

    #14 3 years ago

    I think, originally the rumor was sometime between CES 2017 and TPF in 2017. As slow as this year has been with releases, GB dragging ass, PBR yawnfest, Batman 66 & the Aerosmith leak, it seems like Aerosmith will be at CES. I suppose they could show Star Wars at TPF but more likely I'm thinking it will be Expo next year (at earliest) before we see a Star Wars pin.

    I really hope that whatever they come up with isn't targeted exclusively to the new trilogy movies.

    About a year ago I sold my DE Star Wars thinking a Star Wars pin was imminent. I recently picked up another to hold-me-over but also I've seriously considered just making or retheming to a Star Wars theme as a personal project. Until then, really looking forward to seeing what they come up with!

    I know, POTC and TRON were such dogs...

    #16 3 years ago

    If Stern works it out right with Disney...my thought is that they would release Star Wars trilogy 4, 5 and 6 in 2017 (already have all of the video they need for their new Spike 2 system. Potentially release a Rogue One Pin, but highly doubt it. Boba Fett / and Han Solo movie being released in 2018. Popular characters would make for a great themed Pin, along with artwork. Dec 2017 episode #8 releases. 2019 new trilogy pin...7, 8 and 9 announced in December/January 2020. Between now and 2020 they could launch 3-4 pins. It would be a lot of Star Wars but Stern would make a mint!

    #17 3 years ago

    If Stern is going to make one game of each movie, then I hope they let each of their designers do one each. That would make them unique.
    Or if they do one game of each trilogy.

    #18 3 years ago

    You can get a DE Star Wars, Sega SW Trilogy and Williams SW Ep 1. for less than what a new Stern one is going to cost. Just sayin'.

    Just because the public likes a product doesn't mean the license holder was happy with it. Two very different things.

    #21 3 years ago

    I think it is a certainty. Like others here, I think it will happen in conjunction with episode 9. I can't wait.

    #22 3 years ago
    Quoted from MinusWorlds:

    Again, Disney hated them so much they put them all over their theme parks and resorts.

    At this point who really gives a shit. The Pro is going to be $6K +.

    Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

    So sorry for repeating information given to me. It won't happen again.

    #25 3 years ago

    I would be thrilled if Stern makes a proper pin for Eps IV-VI, especially with then new screen and everything, with Lyman on code. If we get one of those in 2017 and then another Pin for Eps VII-IX in 2019, that sounds just perfect.

    #26 3 years ago

    If JJP or DP has Star wars than i hope they announce it yesterday. If Stern has the license, i think I rather have them wait a few years. So they can improve themselves in using the videoscreen.

    I think star wars is one of the biggest licenses and needs a top 5 pin. Almost garanteed by JJP, DP will be fantastic minimum but i really hope Stern can blow us away, but my hopes are not that high and i am afraid we will see a generetic undercoded stern pin again.

    Just curious how you know this or who you know and was it the general feeling across the board of Disney or just certain people?

    #29 3 years ago

    It is the title after Aerosmith and it is Stern for sure.

    #30 3 years ago

    If they could sell it for $15k+, there is a good chance they will make it.

    #31 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pinballlew:

    Just curious how you know this or who you know and was it the general feeling across the board of Disney or just certain people?

    It was told to me directly from a Disney employee. That would know. And no it wasn't Mickey or Goofy. As far as a general feeling or just individuals I'm not sure. I can ask. It was said to me more than once for what it's worth.

    Imagine that? Someone asks a direct question, instead of being a dick, and it gets answered. What a concept. Thank you.

    CaptainKirk, errr Air_pinball, and shacklers can make assumptions all they want. I'll keep on trusting my source.

    #32 3 years ago
    Quoted from GetTheJackpot:

    None of which are any good.

    And there's no guarantee this will be either. You are willing to spend 8-10k for the theme alone....you're prepared to order before playing it. Why not get 3 games with that theme instead?

    #33 3 years ago
    Quoted from cards25:

    Hey! This is Sternside...errr...I mean Pinside. You are not allowed to tell facts that don't put Stern in a positive light. Too many here can't take that..pitchforks will come out!

    Stern has the Iron Maiden license as well as Mark Ritchie working on Pulp Fiction, so maybe one of those?

    Oh for christs sake, relax and pipe down. Your claims don't add up in my book so naturally I question your information. Your source could be a wind bag for all I know. But what I do know is, Disney has to approve the art direction when Stern submits their samples. Some are rejected, some are not. This has pretty much always been the way with anything licensed, so with that said, Disney has allowed and approved of whatever concepts they've put into production so far, so the claim makes little sense to me but believe what you want, I could care less.

    2017 release for Pulp Fiction? Another boutique game or cornerstone? I'm interested! This excites me more than Star Wars. New Star Wars might be great, but I already own the DE version and there have been so many of them.
