Quoted from fishbone:

Revenge of the Sith.

For me this was the best of the newer films and up there for best of the entire series, fight scenes were amazing and I liked the end sequence, it was just a great dark Star Wars film.

Will Sterns Facebook page go dark within the next couple of hours?

Quoted from dri:

If it did turn out to be a rethemed Star Trek, that would suck. I like Star Trek just fine and don't want the same game with a different art and sound package.

I mirror Aurich's sentiment that I love SR's previous games but I just hope this one has some wow in it, somewhere.

If I compare this pending release to GB in terms of buzz, it feels like we are in 'meh' territory, so far / by comparison to the run up to Ghostbusters. The days leading up to the GB reveal, folks were speculating that magnaslings might cause testicular cancer, might eat a hole in the play-field or a tear a whole in the space-time-continuum. Folks were speculating on the ecto goggles and proton beams..

Days out (potentially) from Star Wars and all we have is the hyperspace-loop stuff ala Getaway. *yawn*

I'm hoping this just means folks are better at keeping a proper trade-secret on this pin and not that the pin will be underwhelming on innovation. Cautiously optimistic...

At any rate on a different note..

Happy Anniversary Star Wars. Sending good vibes out to Carrie Fisher's family..

This is a fitting time and place so here's my big unveil. A friend of mine works for Disney as a special effects person. He worked on BB8 for The Force Awakens. He asked if I wanted anything made and we brainstormed and finally decided on a movie quality battle damaged Captain Phasma helmet. Here's the progress so far:

If it was anyone other than Palpitine I would agree...so bad that guy.

EDIT: Oh jesus you meant the entire movie up agianst all the others...jesus christ what a joke.

No...just a bunch of Pinsiders with their Schwartz's in their hands "sure aboot it" this time

#415 3 years ago

Maybe Gary just wants to announce Star wars on his birthday... June 12th...

Thankfully the delay is giving me more time to make room for it in the basement, if another pin ends up in the living room I may be looking for a new place to live...

#416 3 years ago

I have been told by a reliable source that the release date will be the 6th of June.
Hope it's correct!

#417 3 years ago

After all the dates that have come and gone, the only reliable prediction I can make at this point is that the game will be out sometime this year.

#418 3 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Made up dates...like Jaws Release...and maiden...and blah blah fucking blah

Heard this also and K man says 800 LE, one edition.

So I'm not reading through this thread but I heard the Star Wars Sle cabinet will be shaped like a fighter from the movie...

My distro says it looks like 2 editions.

I think the biggest difference I that GB has some actual leaks with photos and real "proof" that it was coming. With nothing at all concrete on Star Wars it is just feeling like the speculation we see with hundreds of other "ideas". Is it real? We all hope and think so but there is still that level of doubt that keeps many from getting involved.

Some speculated that Stern put the GB leaks out to help promote. If only they could be so smart... a few nuggets of real information on Star Wars could go a long way in hyping the machine. But if there were leaks would pinside remove them anyways like they did with GB?

I predict a teaser today via FB and pinside will go stumbling all over themselves today in a frenzy.

#428 3 years ago

I would very much like a teaser, I want to buy SW yesterday. After playing Dialed In last weekend, I may have to use the allocated funds for that if SW reveal doesn't come soon.

#430 3 years ago

The time is near, it is.

#431 3 years ago

Get ready for the "didn't get in the preorder list early enough to get an LE" rage. This game will be like Ghostbusters all over again. By the time it's revealed, the LE wait lists will be pretty much filled. Pinball is even more hot right now, and there's probably no license so heavy as Star Wars out there.

I've heard all sorts of things about the game, from how it looks to how it plays. While I won't be in the NIB market for this game, I hope it's a real home run and I can pick up one of the early secondhand market sales.

Shit I hope not...hope this one is good enough to keep

GB is a keeper.

#435 3 years ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

GB is a keeper.

It's easily one of Sterns best games in my opinion, especially the premium. I hope that Star Wars is as loaded of a pin, if not more, then GB Premium / LE. Looking forward to the announcement.

Wasn;t for me but we all like diff'rent stuff. Hoping SW is a good one, although I would prob have to sell my GOT to get it.
That's a tuffy.

#439 3 years ago

There it is. SW is official.

#440 3 years ago

I predict it will be announced today.

Quoted from TopMoose:

Standard fan layout.
Three pops and two top lanes in the back corner.
Two ramps.
Standups on both sides.
Bash toy feature in the middle.
Scoop hole for mode/special/extra ball/mystery
Complete the same five shots over and over to collect mountains of points.
Shot multipliers are a major part of the game.

Guys...

I pretty much called it.

Quoted from Ed209:

My prediction is people will be disappointed with the art package. Heard rumors it's not hand drawn.

Looks like my prediction came true. =(

#444 3 years ago
Quoted from Ed209:

Sadly, yes. That is some basic artwork.

New prediction: it will be a major seller because of the theme alone and early-adopter pinheads will jump on it (because they always do) but it won't stay in collections long.

#445 3 years ago

And once again the Premium looks better than the LE.

#446 3 years ago

After GB I gotta say it all comes down to code now. They shit the code bed on that one. Art and playfield on Star Wars is cut and paste. Nothing real special. So if everyone jumps at it based on hype, I predict code is half done and sucks and no one cares but me. Same reason I sold GBLE but I won't be burnt again.

#447 3 years ago

That looks really disappointing. It looks like one of those home-pins, with a couple Micro-machines stuck on there.

And the art - someone spent about an hour in Photoshop - and done.

Sorry to be a downer, maybe it is a case of too much buildup, but that is so underwhelming for the most anticipated theme of all time.

Nope I think you're pretty spot on. The cabs I like. The PF? Ahhh...big nope.

#449 3 years ago

I think JJP and Dialed In are gonna love the first look at this release. Looks squeaky cheap but I assume the price will not be.
