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 1 year ago

Wow! That art looks great! HUGE improvement.

#6 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#8 1 year ago

Pictures are up on Stern's Facebook page now.

Stern must be feeling nostalgic about their Data East Roots

#11 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#17 1 year ago

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

#18 1 year 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.

#19 1 year ago
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 1 year 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 1 year ago

This was a nice unexpected surprise looks really good.

#23 1 year 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

#24 1 year ago
Quoted from TheGunnett:

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

Double post.

#26 1 year ago

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

#27 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#29 1 year ago

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

#30 1 year ago

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

#31 1 year ago

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

#32 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#35 1 year 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 1 year ago

you can paint a turd and its still a turd.

#37 1 year ago

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

#38 1 year ago
Quoted from robotron:

Basically yes.

#39 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

#43 1 year ago

Then be more careful next time when u paint.

Who wants an original pro at a discount?

#46 1 year ago

How's the clear on these?

#47 1 year 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

#48 1 year ago
Quoted from Tsskinne:

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

#49 1 year ago

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