I was just posting the same thing... lol. Guess it wasn't selling well. This will help but i think most people that wanted one probably have it.

#5 44 days ago

Wow! That art looks great! HUGE improvement.

#6 44 days ago

I'm glad they revisited the art. But I'm having a hard time getting over their font choice...

I get it's a comic influenced design, but meh

#7 44 days ago

Not a fan of the art style at all. Nice there are more choices out there for people though.

#8 44 days ago

Pictures are up on Stern's Facebook page now.

Stern must be feeling nostalgic about their Data East Roots

#11 44 days ago

So the real questions is, what effect will this have on the prices of the older games? My guess is that the LE will take the biggest hit. Hey, don't shoot the messenger!

#12 44 days ago

Wow I never saw that coming.

i honestly don't think it will affect the "old" art. I think it's good for people to have options and if you don't care for the comic book art, you can always get the "old" version, and vice versa.

#14 44 days ago

Got to hand it to Stern, they are finding all kinds of ways to keep the production line moving.

Give us some more code updates on the games we are waiting for - that always gets new buyers

#15 44 days ago

the playfield looks worse imo. never ever wanted any different art on my premium playfield or cabinet.

#17 44 days ago

It's too bad Stern didn't go with this style artwork in the first place. Looks way better!

#18 44 days ago

Stunning! I've been wanting a SW but just never pulled the trigger. This will probably make me do it now. Great job Stern.

Quoted from bigd1979:

It's a two year old game. My guess is stern had already moved all their games to distributors a year ago or more, and now they want a new run to sell to distributors. It's not like Stern is sitting on tons of boxes of games in their factory. That's why they have the distributor model. This new game does zero to move the existing games that may be leftover at distributors.

I think this new art style is a home run. It's the version I'd get if I could afford NIB games regularly.

#20 44 days ago

I wonder who the artist is?

Yeah, it's hard to say how the market will react. If people go gaga over the new art, then it may, at least in the short term, affect pricing of the older games. That's what happened with AC/DC premiums when the Luci's were first announced.

#22 43 days ago

This was a nice unexpected surprise looks really good.

#23 43 days ago

That art looks really great but unless they've animated all the movie clips to match I feel it will clash with all the HD live action and look of the display. I think the classic LE has the best overall package still

Quoted from TheGunnett:

It's in the article. His name is Randy Martinez. He is a Lucasfilm artist.

Double post.

#26 43 days ago

Art looks cool. Always good to have options. I’ll stick with my le though. Like the Star Wars original.

#27 43 days ago

WOW!! Looks really good. I like the Pro art better in this version. Old version I liked the premium better. Should boost a couple hundred more sales. Could be more limited then the LE since most have already bought the old version.

#28 43 days ago

I smell new art blades, etc......

#29 43 days ago

Looks like artwork re-do is the new way for Vaults at Stern...

#30 43 days ago

The best part about Stern artwork is if you don't like it, you can just peel it off.

#31 43 days ago

I like the new Premium cabinet but I’d replace with either the Pro Translite or the 2017 Premium Translite.

#32 43 days ago

This is unexpected and awesome. Hope it helps those that were not satisfied with the original art give this game a second chance. I am thankfully happy with my pro art, especially the cab/translite, but the new ones are also super cool, and that playfield is definitely an improvement. Wouldn't mind hanging one or both of the new translites in the gameroom someday, that's for sure! Pretty cool surprise for a Friday. I hope it's a big hit for Stern!

#33 43 days ago

Damn been kind of wanting a star wars and been moving games to get a new one.

All I can say is I'm very tempted to get a new in box for the first time in a while

#34 43 days ago

Lol. An attempt to sell left over parts. Let’s be real.

#35 43 days ago

For a second I thought this was just a remix of the art on Star Wars: The Pin, so it's cool that it's actually the full game.

#36 43 days ago

you can paint a turd and its still a turd.

#37 43 days ago

Will the footage on the backbox screen be comics-style too???

Quoted from robotron:

Basically yes.

#39 43 days ago

Looks cool, but it Seems like they are trying to squeeze every last cent out of their star wars license? First 3 models in 2017 then the home version a few months back now 2 more Editions now.. Seems a lot like what Jersey Jack did with Woz..

#40 43 days ago

Wow the new art package really makes me want a premium, as it's focused more on the Empire. Just look at all the Bounty Hunters on the side of the head! You've got Grand Moff Tarkin, Boba Fett, the Sarlac pit, Luke/Vader Bespin duel, yoda/luke force training on the drops, cool tie fighters, etc. I love it

Lets be real? who was thinking anything other than that and what a smart move to do so. I had a Pro played the shit out of it and it left a while ago, might be time to for it to come back.

#42 43 days ago

Cool option for a great game. Maybe it can attract some more fans.

Then be more careful next time when u paint.

Who wants an original pro at a discount?

#46 43 days ago

How's the clear on these?

#47 43 days ago

So I own the game love the game had it for two years still love the game and I think the new art is amazing and it sucks that I have the old art

I do, but I'm guessing you weren't thinking a 50% discount ...

#49 43 days ago

Wow looks awesome. Was never interested in this game, but honestly on my radar now.
