I have my comic pro listed for $6900 modded out.

#11602 43 days ago
Quoted from Pinash:

Just heard the latest TPN podcast. Is it true the Comic Premiums are going for $12k?!? If so, there goes my chances of owning one.

I mentioned in passing a few months ago that I was thinking about selling mine and have been hit up several times to do so. All these Mando owners want the Randy Martinez Star Wars Premium Comic pin to make the “perfect pair” in their ultimate Star Wars collection. The problem is there is only around 300 Comic Premiums made. That is why the price is going nuts. It is all demand driven (no supply).

Isn't Stern doing a run of SW Comic Premiums early next year?

Quoted from megadeth2600:

I haven't heard anything about Comic Premiums going back on the line. I do know some pros were made recently but I heard they were left over from a pervious run because of a part shortage of some kind. Both models are retired on the Stern Website.

#11605 43 days ago

Comics are done. Only movie pro and premiums were on the line.

#11606 42 days ago

Thanks for clarifying ... I often feel like I am the only one that likes the original art and doesn't care for the comic version ... I'm not right in the head though .

... I often feel like I am the only one that likes the original art and doesn't care for the comic version ... I'm not right in the head though .

Original art is better in my opinion. I had choice of both when I bought mine and chose original art. The font on the Comic Art is whack.

#11608 42 days ago

I also prefer the og art... the game is based off the movie, not the comic.

#11609 42 days ago

Original art, no question. Gotta hand it to Stern for realizing that there was a demand for it. I don't like it at all.

#11610 42 days ago

Original or Comic Art, the game is a bloody winner.

#11611 42 days ago

I don't know... the comic art pro apron has this fine Luke staring at you whilst you play - this alone sets it far and beyond as the clear winner for best version..

OG Art is better.. obviously

#11612 42 days ago

I prefer the comic art. I feel it is more true to pinball. Pinball is all about art. I also really like the fact my Comic Premuim is worth 2k more than it's older sister.

#11613 42 days ago

Comic art is awesome!
There is plenty of nod to the move on the LCD.

Isn't that the piece that goes away when you install the scanner for Insider Connect?

I've got the OG art LE and very happy with the way it looks

#11616 41 days ago

Yeah, that piece of art goes away or gets modified somehow with the new apron's Insider Connect scanner cut-out.

I am ok Being an outsider not going to add that crap to my games.

#11618 41 days ago
Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

I completely understand your point of view . The original SW art has a "sort-of hand drawn over photo" feel to it though and I prefer the font used on the playfield. To each their own though ... I am not criticizing anything. I used to automatically dismiss anything that looked "Photoshopped" ... that meant that I missed out on a Tron Premium back when they were announced ... man was I pissed when I played it for the first time . I learned to not be such a bigot when it comes to pinball artwork .

I tend to marvel at the engineering of some of the unique features in games. The Rudy head in Funhouse was some amazing work. While it looks so simple, it takes some amazing talent to make something like that work reliably at a relatively low cost. The hyperloop in SW (and HS2 for that matter) is another slick piece of engineering. That kind of stuff is art to me too .

Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

I also really like the fact my Comic Premuim is worth 2k more than it's older sister.

That's always a bonus ... and absolutely nothing wrong with liking that feature .

#11619 41 days ago

I bought the premium when they first came out. I have a DE SW, which I suppose fulfills my comic art needs. The styling of the DE SW and the Stern comic art SW are very similar.

Best go yet. Played as Leia, had one shot left to defeat the emperor and choked. Now young Skywalker, I will die... I'll get you next time, old man!

Well my high score is just under 6 billion and I've never even made it to the Emperor...

#11625 39 days ago

4.5 billion of this score was bonuses. Chose hold bonus whenever possible! And I hear you re the emperor, this is the only time I've faced him. Escape From Boba Fett usually brings me undone.

Hold bonus is huge! That's how I got my high score.

Okay so I am looking at getting a set of Titan rubbers for my SW premium, but I'm having an issue with ordering the right amount.

On the Titan database, I can account for all the rubbers except for 2x 3" rings.. I can't find them anywhere in the Premium manual. You guys know what these two rings are for or is this a mistake in the Titan database?

#11628 38 days ago

Okay I figured it out. The people putting the ring lists together added the two 3" rings in case the 2-1/2" rings were too small. Has anyone run into a problem with the 2-1/2" rings being too small, though?

2.5 inch is standard for modern slings. I'm not familiar with silicone rings. Maybe they aren't as elastic, so 3 inch is needed?

Does anyone know how to reduce the volume of the topper sounds (in specific the rotating sound - yes it is actually generated sound effect, not "rotating noise")

Ohh really? Always thought it’s mechanical noise pretty sure you cant reduce it

I don’t think I’ve see many spinner decals for this game and I thought a Han frozen in carbonite felt right.

holy cow that is nice, i always thought the factory spinner decal was lame, how did you do this?

I made them with a printer and vinyl cutting machine. Printable adhesive backed paper and a layer of mylar on top. You don't need the vinyl cutter.. scissors would do just fine...

here are the images I used - final dimensions need to be 23.5mm wide x 30 mm tall

Quoted from njvc:

HYPERSPACE MULTIBALL GLITCH
I posted about this issue a while back, but it remains unresolved. In hyperspace multiball, once a second ball enters the hyperloop, my machine does not kick out a third ball onto the playfield as intended. I just have to wait for the hyperloop to time out and the 2 balls return to the playfield. All other multiball modes work fine.
Since first posting about it, 2 people have messaged me to say they have the same glitch on their premium.
I've emailed Stern about this today, as my local distributor had no ideas. Guess I'm just wondering how many people here have experienced this glitch. Is it common? Has anyone solved it?
Thanks!

I flashed an SD card with the game code and still have the problem. If you go into test mode and run the hyperspace test, does it always show the number of balls being one less than it really is? One ball says 0, two balls say 1, etc. My theory is when you get 2 balls in the loop it thinks there’s one so it doesn’t kick out another. You can prove this by starting a game (glass off) and start the multi ball. Have an extra ball in hand. Get two balls in the loop, and now add your extra one. The game will now launch another ball. Put that one in the loop and it will launch another

Confirmed on my game as well. Test shows a ball less than there is.

Would be curious to know if the count is correct on a game that doesn’t have the bug or they’re all like this. It does the backward count correctly from 5, and works with multiple balls. Can’t help but think there’s a switch somewhere affecting this. Ball trough optos seem fine.

So I learned the hard way tonight about the automatic reset high scores feature. Every high score other than my GC is now deleted, days after I finally beat the jedi multiball high score. It was set to delete scores automatically after 2000 plays. Default setting! Fair warning to anyone else that didn't know that yet!

#11641 28 days ago

Joined the club today, very happy. Premium version

So now on to the questions :
- is there some alternate nice OST rom out there?
- I've seen a Guardians of the Galaxy with yellow convolux and it looked absolutely gorgeous. Makes me want to install in my SW, however given that GI is dual color, kind of wonder what color would be best suited. Any advice? Did anyone try frosted white convolux?

Regards

- Yes there are some alternate versions out there. Wouldn't call them nice necessarily as it's a personal choice - the one I tried I didn't like because of some weird SW fan music inserted instead of all John Williams. Any any case good luck finding one. Probably way easier to just make your own.
- It's actually 3 colored GI. Red, Blue, and Cool White. Personally I really doubt yellow would work well given the palette of the game artwork, It's space, cold, very black & white like the SW universe.

OK, played quite a few games. I'm very bad at it

The mystery scoop eject especially is a killer for me, more often than not it shoots straight down the drain.

I looked at the mechs, don't quite see how to adjust the eject trajectory

Any advice?

It's been covered in the thread multiple times so I'd recommend a search for more specifics but in a nutshell; change the eject power in the settings up or down depending on what flipper you want it to hit upon eject.

There's also a ball save feature that you can turn on for that eject.

Does anybody have a photo of the lightsaber armor installed? These seems kinda cool but at the same time they block a lot of the cabinet art.

#11648 27 days ago

OK, me again...

Having some detection issue at the death star entrance. Sometime the ball enter the hyperloop but is not triggering either the mode start nor they hyperspeed magnet when applicable, yet is on the ramp so it goes down and balance left and right on the ramp until it falls.

Yes I did a search... But could not find something relevant, at least not with the search term I used

Has anyone encountered this issue ?

I didn't know about that option. Might have been included in the new code, thanks for the heads up. I just set it to OFF, all good.
