No luck unfortunately with the SW topper folks.

It was a question I raised directly to Mr. Stern in his seminar at Pinfest / Newcastle over the weekend, “what about the SW topper”?

Gary was very apologetic and said the road block was purely being caused by Disney marketing being “such a pain in the ass to work with” (my interpretation of his reply).

I believe it to be the case, because Stern would ship orders of a few hundred toppers globally right of the bat.

My only thought was that why can’t the topper be predesigned with the cab and play field bits to be submitted at the same time? Maybe in a perfect world it could but I’m sure those resources would be allocated elsewhere and the objective to get the game released first.

So what if the topper takes longer to arrive. It kinda makes it more fun to think there’s more coming and big thanks uncle Walt for the wait!

Quoted from yzfguy:

I don’t think it makes it more fun. I would have sucked up the high price and bought one during the honeymoon phase. I still love the game, but I won’t be sinking 500 more dollars into it at this point. I think for the most part, they missed the boat by not releasing it while it was a “hot new title.”

Yeah true we missied the honeymoon phase but maybe there’s still a new hope for the first anniversary, or even the second.

I reckon there could be some third party home attempts, but who’s going to attempt something with a droid head if they’ll get busted for an IP breach by Disney?

It’s a bit like the SW LED pinblades by PinGraffix. I absolutely luv em to bits, they are a killer addition and 100% professional quality mod. I’ll probably never take ‘em off. They have planet and laser beams flash on and off, but can you imagine if they tried to replicate some tie fighters or x-wing art on a released product.

However, there’s nothing to stop one from adding these themselves... not implying that I have either.

Wait untill those toppers finally get released and dangled under peoples nose. Folks will be cued up round the corner like it was some Supreme product, with money in fist to be the first to get one, with or without any illuminations. lol.

Quoted from DNO:

SOTU was (probly) created because of the pinside cries of "I also don't care much on timelines at that point, I actually enjoy playing pins at all stages of code, ...”

Me too brother. In fact I’ve reverted back to earlier codes for fun on how underdeveloped the initial code was and in retrospective and recall the difference.

Do you think Stellar Wars ever got any code update? Me thinks not...
