Quoted from rai:

Debating can get :
SW premium one owner no mods around 600 total plays.
SW nib comic art for $800 more.
The huo pin will involve me driving there and back time wasted.
I prefer the comic art not sure if it’s enough to sway me to spend that much more.

I'd get NIB comic art one. It's the better looking version and will be far more rare and hold value better than the standard Premium.

Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

Just spoke with an honest distributor. They told me the clear coat is much thinner now, they unboxed a sw comic today.
Is this a bad thing or not?

My opinion is much better. Thick clearcoat chips, cracks, etc. When you see HEP do clear, he does not glob it on there...

Got my pro today. Beautiful art and no
playfield problems noted.

Does HEP apply clearcoat so thin you can actually see the ink lines & inserts?

I dont think he does. But, I'm a pauper & wouldn't know. Based on his pics the games look like beautiful glass.

Comic edition all damn day

$800 gets ya a brand new game with warranty thats rare, more desired, likely to hold value better, looks FAR better IMO & it just magically arrives to your driveway with zero effort/time.

Grab a calculator, take your household income divided by 2080 hrs then multiply that result by the time you'd spend on a used game door to door to determine the **cost** of the HUO

No. But my game doesn’t look like that...

His work is beautiful. But nobody is comparing off the shelf games with HEP.

Your game is fine. A proper clear coat job should not look like glass. Look at any diamondplate WMS game. You can see and feel the inserts and line work.

Yes - that was my point. My game is fine and great. I actually like less clear and was pretty happy that this game was less coated.

I prefer by far the original edition of SW premium.

In my opinion Star Wars is all about the first 3 movies.
Star Wars is not about cartoon and comic book, it's about the 3 first movies filmed in the reality, that's why the original edition with more realistic graphics is certainly the more evident and by far better looking for the eyes. I cannot feel the Star Wars world in the comic edition, it look very curious to me, strong lack of details give me bad feeling, i don't feel the immersion in the Star Wars world.

On the other hand, Spider Man is all about comic books, and i'm not sure why the ''vault'' comic edition was not well received, very curious !! I prefer by far Spider Man comic edition than Spider Man ''movie'' edition.

Everybody has their own preferences
and likes. I love the original movies and thought
the original art looked good But to me when I saw the
first pics of the comic art editions it blew me away and
seemed to give new life to the game. It's good to have choices.

I completely agree. Nobody asked for this comic book and now that it's out the followers are falling in line.

I got my comic art (pro) yesterday. I've played the original pro and enjoyed it immensely, but to me the comic art really pops. Hopefully it helps bring some new faces into the hobby. I've been without a machine for a decade, and this pin helped draw me back in

PLUS you have comic art pin, but the screen shows you the films. This does not fit. In an opposite way it would be the same AS would show you on the screen real AS (Concerts, MTV-Clips or so). In this case, the pinsiders would have bashed Stern.

But when it is SW, it´s supi dupi.

Strange world.

Well, since the first Marvel Star Wars comic book came out a month before the movie in 1977, I think it's fine. I personally prefer the comic art, but have no issues with the other, but being pinside....

The comic book art style is all we had to tide us over for 3 years until the next movie came out. We weren't able to binge watch them over and over or watch you tube videos about it.

We had toys and comic book art.

I love it.

#218 2 days ago

I think the comic art looks nice and I don't have a problem with the art not being photo realistic, glad there is more to pick from and this is a 2 year old pin so maybe it will get some more sales, win-win.

Also why I love my pro comic art ...
I've collected comics for over 40 years.

I was concerned about that as well, but there is really no mismatch. Star Wars is Star Wars. The characters are beloved whether hand drawn or in a video clip.

I consider myself a Star Wars fan, but not crazy. I have never gone to any conventions. I open my Star Wars toys and play with them. I have read some of the new Marvel comics that have been issued in the last few years and really enjoy the art style. I did not have an issue with the “photoshopped” style of the initial design, but the comic one absolutely blows it away, for me personally, at least.

If someone is not a fan of Star Wars comics, of course they will probably not see the appeal of the new artwork.

I'd be more concerned over which playfield has more potential to pool/chip....Might be a safer bet to find an earlier pre-owned.

Quoted from Metengo:

You have comic art on the cabinet and translite but the screen shows you the films. This does not fit.

Screen images and cabinet and playfield art styles don't have to match. Elvira's House of Horrors has original Greg Freres art but actual new video of Elvira on the LCD screen, which is the perfect combination to me.

I thought almost everyone prefers original art to photoshopped pics for cabinets and playfields? Cab art and screen images do not have to match.

All of the art on the original pro / prem / LE is hand drawn. No photographs inserted. It is just a more photo realistic art style vs comic.

Has anyone heard from their distributor what type of run Stern is doing on these? Similar low hundreds run like ACDC Luci, or run these to order until the licence expires? I love to get the new art premium but a little cash poor at the moment.

The distributor I bought mine from told me the initial run is only 200. I don't know why he would make that up. If it sells well I can't imagine they would stop there, but if it's true, that would essentially make this art package more like a LE.
