    As a huge Star Wars fan/nerd/geek, I was left flat when I played the Star Wars Pro machine when it first came out in 2017.
    Fast forward 2.5 years and I had a long session on a Star Wars Premium machine and had an absolute blast! It was ultra quick and brutal at times, but I did want to keep pressing the start button.
    I have room for one more machine and am agonising on the decision - go for my dream theme (Star Wars Prem - in Comic Art guise) or go with a future classic like Keith's JP Prem?
    I know this is a personal question and quite subjective, but am keen to see what the poll throws up and if you have any words of wisdom.

    PS: I know this is crazy, but I also enjoyed the SW Home Pin machine (and it is 50% cheaper than either of the two Prems).

    I was the same way. Played Star Wars pro and didn't think much of it. Once it got some code update it was better, but still not great. But the premium was a way different experience. Lots of fun. I don't think either of them are as good as Jurassic Park as far as gameplay goes though.

    Jurassic Park is an adventure.

    Star Wars is a battle.

    Don't know anything about the geek part but for me SW is the better game for pros
    Don't know much about JP2 premium although I'd take a SW pro over prem. I'm sure the Raptor pit it much better in the prem.

    I think JP is the better game but if SW is your dream theme and you like playing it I think you should go with it.

    I was facing a similar decision and went with SW Comic premium. Its my dream theme as a SW nut and couldnt pass up the comic. Ive been told its a limited production so I figured I could always get the other game on my list later.

    I like the JP is an adventure and SW is a battle comment. SW really is a battle. The game is tough!

    Sounds like you should own both at some point. Just pick which one to own first...likely the one with complete code.

    JP premium. Much more fun in my opinion.

    You like/love them both. Which one would you rather have as a piece of furniture?

    #10 6 months ago

    Both games have excellent code that is deep. For me it would come down to shots and Jurrasic Park has by far the more interesting and unique layout in my opinion.

    I think JP2 is in the conversation as the the best game ever.

    #12 6 months ago

    I have both in my lineup and if I had to choose which one to keep it would be JPprem. I still love my SWprem but JP has the edge on toys and shots, but I think SW has the edge on sound and video both are deep with code. I guess you have to ask yourself what is more important...more shots...or sound and video. The other factor would be price and right now you can get a SW for a bit cheaper on the secondary market. Good luck with your decision you can’t go wrong with either one.

    Both great games. I own a SW pro and love it. For me the premium upgrade wasn't worth it, but I know some people love the hyperloop. JP is one of the most unique and amazing games I have played in a long time. I will have one as soon as possible. Again, probably the pro, though I wouldn't turn down a premium by any means.

    SW is a polarizing machine for sure, but if you gave it a lot of play and are enjoying it, then I would say this is a can't lose situation. In your shoes, I think I would grab SW now and JP later. It doesn't sound like there are going to be very many comic art ones made, and at this point I am guessing the people buying know the game and know they will be keeping it long term. I have a feeling it will be harder to come by in the future than JP will be. That's just a guess though. Good luck!

    Owning pinball machines based on titles will always be a personal preference.

    Something to consider...
    SW has been in production for 2.5 years already and technically coming up on the last 6 months, unless Stern renews the license. JP has been in production for 6 months so there is another 2.5 years that it is potentially still on the line.

    SW now then sell ur TWD when u have had enough of it and grab a JP2.
