I was pleasantly surprised with this.
Although a little clunky, it still has a good flow.
To be honest, i enjoyed playing this more than the pro model. Like that Stern decided to put metal ramps opposed to the crappy plastic ones that were on the previously released Home"the pin" models.
For a home pin, definitely an improvement over the crappy Marvel and Transformers one.
Easy access for maintenance under playfield unlike previous home pins, with the exception of Spiderman the pin.
In fact, Star Wars the Pin is very similar to the Spiderman the pin, which I kind of liked too.
SW has better ramps than Spiderman.
Of course these arnt as good quality as full commercial models, for what it is Stern did a decent job. Purist may not approve, but I can see the moderate pinball players enjoying this one, especially kids.
My only worries with this is how well it will hold up in time. The ball kind of knocks around pretty hard on some of the objects on playfield which are cheaper quality, and i wonder if eventually will cause damage do to its clunkyness, but time will tell.
As far as how it looks, it does look visually attractive. Love the artwork......
As far as price though, for 4000 dollars you can get much more for that amount in quality obviously by just buying a 1990s William's or Bally, or even a Data East...
However, Stern targeting new customers and potentially helping bringing in new pinball fans who want to spend less than the price of new full commercial models is not a bad thing. I think the home pins will get better In the future, but I doubt the prices on future home pins by stern will go down.
Even cheaper quality pins arnt cheap, especially when profits must be made which is most understandable..... lol I'm sorry for rambling.

Bottom line is, the Star Wars the pin is the best Home Pin Sterns made yet.
I can see a market for these.
