I think it will be based on original and coincide with the 40th Anniversary. Stern will have to use the already approved licensed art. The Death Star will be a main toy, and I think we may see Stern integrate the LCD on the playfield for the first time.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

Suspect it also Richie so I also suspect it might have three flippers, which Im never keen on.

Are you pulling my chain or my finger? Third flippers are awesome! I am hoping it has four flippers!

Quoted from Pinhead1982:

Any news on how much the LE's & SLEs are likely to be?

Honestly I don't even think we should mention SLE ever again. Don't indicate to Stern that the SLE idea is viable and a good idea. The whole SLE idea needs to be laid to rest. Stick with the basics and if you want something special buy a LE or Premium-please Stern 'NO MORE SLE'S!'

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

This was a missed opportunity of a great license.
There is no proper promotional video, yet pre-orders commenced fully and without hesitation

I have determined Stern's business model. It is called " Take it or Leave it."

Stern releases machines with no notice no insider info and you get what you get. People can bash the marketing efforts including myself but it comes down to how many units they can sell realistically. It appears like they are at capacity for production and sales are doing well. Now if sales were poor and Stern was struggling than they may opt to try a different approach for marketing their machines. For now there is a mentality of if it is not broke then don't fix it. Bad node boards, cabinets falling apart, playfields deteriorating, beta code and Stern's reply-"Take it or Leave it."
