Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Look I don't mean to belabor the point but I HAVE PLAYED THE FUCKING GAME. There's nothing wrong with it (well except one software bug). Stop pitching bullshit conspiracy theories because you are butthurt there's no video.

Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

Ahh.. my favourite game.

Its a popular game, a number of pinsiders have it on their collection wishlist

#3653 2 years ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Anyone think Stern could put a Tesla Coil in a pinball machine? Even one just generating arcs inside a globe? Wouldn't that look great on the Death Star explosion?

Im designing/making one for my GB.

#3654 2 years ago

Well, I bit the bullet and ordered a premium.

#3655 2 years ago

Does anyone have the game yet?
Think about it......
No...

Resist....
No really.....resist.

Quoted from iceman44:

- off topic post -

This is a SW thread. Start talking about 400+ HD video clips or GTFO.

#3659 2 years ago

This thread has become like a fire on an island. The fire will consume everything until there is nothing left to burn and all the island population will be wiped out. From the ashes new life will rise. Sure I'm interested in SW but I'm not going to lose my mind over it. Videos will come, gameplay and features will be revealed and people will finally be able to stop losing their damn minds. And when the day finaly arrives don't go for the dark side right away and let the force guide you until all the kinks and quirks have been fixed. Patience young padawans the force will be here soon.

It's so funny how this is life or death to people...and then before you know it there's hours of video and the games are popping up everywhere. And then it's on to the next title. Over and over and over again.

Denied!!!!!!

#3662 2 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

I think GOT was filmed on LE first also. Here's hoping it will be the same for SW.

No, GOT streamed on a pro first at the factory, then later they had an LE stream, at Expo, on an LE with Robert Gagno playing.

- Pro 9/28/15

- LE 10/16/15

SR wrote they worked like crazy the last day, so I suppose the machines in the video got their death star & tie fighter and left the builing; since I got a delivery date for my machine today. .

Bah. Get back to me after you've spent hours staring at the photos!

Anyone remember where to get the corner brackets for the inside of Stern cabinets to prevent cracking? I know there's a thread somewhere....meanwhile I'll look for that thread. Trying to be pro-active about the upcoming Stern SW.

I thought i'd get a pro, but i'm getting a premium as the pro looks too stripped on paper and i found a good deal on a premium. Complete non star wars fan, but a huge pinball fan. The layout may be FAN but it looks amazing to me, the art looks amazing to me, on all versions. the colors on the pf are so vivid and look fantastic. this is really a beauty in my opinion and it may even lead to me appreciating the theme at least a little bit...but probably not. that's ok, it's pinball first, theme second, and i couldn't be more excited to play this in my own home in a few mos when premiums hit.

Quoted from Rarehero:

When I was a kid, everyone loved Ewoks. I had the tree fort (or whatever) playset. They're f'ing space hamsters! How can you hate space hamsters!?!?!?!

I was 14 when they came out and I hated them. Don' forget, little kids loved Jar Jar too...

Quoted from Rondogg:

Don' forget, little kids loved Jar Jar too

What is your point; that all kids should be as jaded as you were?

Let them love Jar Jar. The last thing the world needs is more haters.

Looks like a streaming camera rig is setup on that SW pro...

#3673 2 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

"This GB playfield is for Dwight to program"

Plus the GOT next to it which might have had a similar note on it....

Perhaps reading too much into it....we hold hope that code updates will come for these 2 games

#3674 2 years ago

Is that a JAWS logo on Elwin's hat? Let rumor central begin!

Quoted from Hoser:

Well spotted!

#3676 2 years ago

And I approve of the SW play-tester! Come on Elwin ... balance those modes and make it competition worthy!

#3677 2 years ago
Quoted from Hoser:

I saw that too! That's either a very clever clue by them or a simple coincidence :/

If you're into Jaws pinball, pile on here and also send notes to Stern.

Back on topic- having the best player of all time on staff is so huge for this reason of feedback and input. Encouraging.

I had that, I bet it is still at my parents. It was bad ass!

#3680 2 years ago

Funny I just realized the GB issue thread is just about as long as this Star Wars announcement thread so anyone asking why I sold my GBLE can just have a look there and I am sure a few of the reasons are there. I am happy to not have been there for 500+ posts

Almost want to but this pin because of the mods I could do myself. Topper would be the Vader caring case for all the figures.

I know one of these are that my parents house. The old ones they sold. Pit some lights on it. Best topper ever!

I'm gonna do my first pinball browser music change and just replace the entire game's sounds with this:

That might work if the theme was this.

I know I'm a little slow, but I just noticed that there's no bottom to the habitrail on the sharp turn in front of the flippers on the LE/premium. That's a good indication of just how fast the balls are going to be whizzing around there if the centrifugal force will be enough to hold it against the rail on the turn. That's pretty frickin' cool...

Also, like the ramps in Whitewater, there has to be an "out" at the lowest point in case balls get stuck.

Pretty sure it says "JUGGS"

I have a home made one for a topper on my monster bash. Hard to take pictures of it but yeah inside the deathstar zapping all around like the emperor's death scene in ROTJ..

Also, I suspect that lack of a bottom of the trail metal is that way to let the balls fall off if they don't make it around to the diverter.

Funny shit II

Surprised to see Stern didn't present anything at E3 this week...

#3698 2 years ago
Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Kaneda allready told last week he wanted to post a podcast with Sterns PR Jared this (last) monday.
They recorded it but Stern wanted to listen (maybe edit?) and authorize it before it get's uploaded.

As smassa already said, Stern doesn't need to market anything.

Yeah it's like groundhog day. I wonder if the vicious cycle could be broken with some say GTM planning and a dash of marketing.

Love Ewoks or hate them, I think we can all agree that the new age song Lucas put over the Ewoks celebration in the SE of Jedi sucks balls.

Give me the "Nub Nub" original song any day!
