    No need to get upset. There is already a Star Wars pin for true pinheads. I don't see how this is some insult to "loyal" customers. Just don't buy the stupid thing. Price seems very high but maybe this is just like a real pin with more basic features. Looks better than past home pins I will give it that.

    Pictures up on Stern site

    #1103 4 months ago

    Actually, I had a good time with this announcement! I especially liked the press release that stated Stern Pinball is "a global lifestyle brand"!

    #1104 4 months ago
    Quoted from thecashier76:

    I have a bad feeling that this might make used pro’s more expensive. Especially Star Wars pro’s. Why would someone sell their pro for $4500-$4800 when the new PIN is $4500?

    used pros will sell for whatever people are willing to pay for them. I don't really see the pin impacting used pro pricing

    If past history is any indicator, you won't see many Home Edition games for sale on Pinside.

    #1106 4 months ago

    2 bad Star Wars pins weren't enough...Stern needed to finish off the trilogy.

    SW Pro, Premium/LE, and now the home version = Jar Jar Binks

    #1107 4 months ago
    Quoted from ZenTron:

    They got games at the comic con which averages 130,000 people in attendance?
    This game is marketing towards new buyers.

    I was referring to people on pinside who are desperate to spend money on a new pin who were hoping Stern was gonna deliver something actually good.

    umm... because they are not selling for 4800... so if they want to sell it, then they have to drop the price to what market dictates.

    #1109 4 months ago

    I think it actually looks not bad for a home market. If I found one used for a couple grand I would buy one. $4500 is laughable though.

    A few observations:

    -As I've stated many times I just don't think the "home model" concept works in this industry. You either get a zizzle for $500 or this for $4500, either way you miss the mark, both in price and in product. They can keep trying. In product at least, this is far better than anything they've come up with before (the game looks fun, just as Spider Man home is, and it looks and likely feels like a real machine), but you can't ignore the "why not just pay $900 more and get a real one" factor. Sharper Image and Skymall ain't around anymore. And you guys who think they could sell something like this at $2000 or $3000 and still make money are dreaming. This is very close to a pro machine.

    -This is another base game we'll see recycled as a Specialty custom game, giving them three to offer now (Whoa Nellie, Spider Man Home being the other two)

    -the reaction here is and will be, as usual, completely bonkers. This has no effect on you or your life, and it's shocking how personally people continue to take this stuff. Stern will continue putting out 2-3 all new, full size, commercial pinball machines a year as they always have, and when they try new things like this and you all hate it, it's as bizarre as it's completely expected. There was no "hype" here to disappoint you guys, we just found out about this two days ago, and any let down is completely manufactured by yourselves. You'll get your new game in October just like you all expected 3 days ago.

    When you are the #1 company in your industry, you have the luxury of trying out new stuff that would put the other companies out of business. They try stuff like this because they can.

    Stern may constantly let everybody down, but Pinside never does.

    Looks to be more fun than the pro, honestly.

    #1113 4 months ago

    any hope for a topper for this version lol

    #1114 4 months ago

    CrazyLevi summed it up perfectly. Mods lock thread. Or you can all suffer through 20 more pages of the same few arguments & complaints.

    #1115 4 months ago

    I wonder if the slings and pops will have dedicated switches, or if it's SP Home redux on those.

    #1116 4 months ago

    One thing we can all agree on... the music in the trailer is amazing!

    #1117 4 months ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    took literally 5 seconds to find 1
    https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/81874
    others that were sold for 4700 in the past month
    here is one with shaker for 4700
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-star-wars-pro-w-shaker#post-4975290
    4800 loaded. pretty sure it sold for 4700 also
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-or-trade-star-wars-pro-2
    4700 is a pretty well established asking for a nice low play Swpro currently

    Those all sold... And likely sold fast. You said there are a bunch of pros sitting *unsold*.

    #1119 4 months ago

    The right side of this home machine stole artwork from the LE edition ....

    #1120 4 months ago

    This a full size PF?

    #1121 4 months ago

    Watching the Dead Flip reveal and this game is better than some of the other games that have come out recently.

    It blows Thunderbirds out of the water. Also Mafia. Beats Cosmic Carnival too.

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    Exactly. It would have been much worse if the home pin would have been some new title, like Stranger Things, and took the place of an actual full-featured game that Pinsiders would want but would never get made.

    #1124 4 months ago
    Quoted from ktownhero:

    Those all sold... And likely sold fast. You said there are a bunch of pros sitting *unsold*.

    There have been a bunch of SW Pros listed for $4700-$4800 in the MN/WI region in the past year. This is a pretty typical price for any recent HUO Stern game these days. Munsters and Maiden too. Can't believe people are disputing this. The only lcd Stern Pro that sells for more than that is Deadpool or maybe Black Knight right now.

    #1125 4 months ago

    It really is stunning how butthurt so many are over a company doing whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it.

    Stern doesn’t owe you or the “community” anything. They’re a company experimenting with new things. If you don’t like it, who cares? It doesn’t need to be read into as “alienating their base!” Who cares if they teased this and did a reveal video? I promise you that the net loss on your time complaining about said reveal is greater than the loss in time from watching it.

    Same here. Looks very similar to Spidey Home. Similar layout with tweaks. Does look fun, though.

    #1127 4 months ago

    People just like the over analyze everything.

    Quoted from valgalder:

    And on that note... there is an entire other portion of their website devoted to "affordable-home-game" now.

    https://sternpinball.com/affordable-home-game/

    Only 1 entry so far...

    I'm calling it now. Deadpool Home Edition is next.

    #1129 4 months ago

    it’s the exact same as Spider-man Home and Supreme. but u get a death star amp behind the three drops. this shouldn’t be 4,500. it should be 2,500 at best. with an LCD smaller than my apple watch i’d rather take my money and get a nice baywatch or world poker tour. maybe if the layout was original i would be a little more interested.

    That's what we were waiting for!

    Please tell me how Stern could sell these for $2500 and not lose money on every sale?

    #1131 4 months ago

    I think Stern would be better off building a simple 1/2 or 3/4 scale video pinball machine. They could even charge some crazy fee ($100) to allow you to unlock other games. They already have a relationship with The Pinball Arcade..

    #1132 4 months ago

    lol they say it's affordable... for 500 - 800$ cheaper than a Pro. They can't be serious.

    #1133 4 months ago

    mods > topic is marked resolved

    feel free to lock it up.

    and I can start one for the next summer? release

    #1135 4 months ago

    It tool a while but finally a reveal that makes the "Al Capone's Vault" seem less disappointing.

    #1136 4 months ago

    After watching some of the stream, it's fine for a home game. The only thing that really bothers me about the gameplay on these is both slings firing at the same time. One doesn't have enough time to rebound before it hits the other, so you end up really getting only one good hit.

    Other than that, I'm sure some dumbass who spent money on this game will enjoy it.

    they can’t but if they want to price a game as a home model when their are so many more options at that price point and below for better games in full size cabinets with real displays then it should be around that price point. hell. most of our first games were EM’s. maybe stern should start selling those for 2,500 and market that as a home model.

    I was wondering the same thing, the action in the pop bumpers looks good though.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    How is a NORMAL PERSON supposed to know a Star Wars Pro even EXISTS and can be bought by someone who isn't a professional operator?

    You think any normal person would Shell 4K without checking reviews, available options etc?
    How stupid Do you and Stern really think people are?

    At that suggested price, i would almost loose hope in human intelligence, if they sell more then 20 machines.

    #1141 4 months ago

    This thing looks super fun. Spinner is awesome. I kinda want one. I mean, not really, but you know.

    #1142 4 months ago

    there is an aerosmith pro that was just listed for the same price as this star wars home edition. but it has slings that fire one at a time. a full cabinet. full size display. full speakers. awesome mechs. for the same price as a re-skin.

    Then you better jump on it because I don’t think Stern will make very many.

    #1148 4 months ago

    Stern Pinball: Marketing ProTip: Don't try to hype a product with teases and a countdown timer that your hardcore fan base isn't interested in. Save those tactics for cornerstone titles. The build up and let down is why these threads are blowing up. No one remembers the Spider-Man home launch. Because Stern didn't market it to Pinside.

    #1149 4 months ago

    BREAKING:
    dead flip confirmed it is not a cornerstone and that stern is still on their normal schedule for games. so this means 2 more games?

    #1150 4 months ago
    Quoted from misterschu:

    This is the same layout as Spiderman home

    Similar, but Not true. The lock is in a different spot, and there is a drop target bank in front of the left ramp. It also locks 2 balls instead of 1 like Supreme.
