Quoted from Ockeyhead:
We just picked up a SW's premium last week & this machine is incredible! Last night I somehow managed to get to the Jedi Master wizard mode w/ a final score of 6 billion +. The lightshow, the lightning fast gameplay, the rule objectives & the theme integration is just simply phenomenal pinball.
My only slight letdown is that the exploding death star mechanism is under utilized. Is the mode "Destroy The Death Star" the only mode that triggers this toy? I've had approximately fifty plays on SW's & have only seen the star explode twice. Is there another mode or something adjustable in settings that would trigger the star more often?
The death star will explode in either Endor or Death Star Mode. Easy way I show people to explode it is to start with Han and Endor lit. There are 4 green shots you need to complete twice (both ramps and horseshoe loop). Back hand two right shots from right flipper. Back Hand two left shots from left flipper. Once all 8 shots collected, start Endor multi ball. Make sure to bash force targets until button in middle turns orange (this is an add a ball and can be used anytime during ball, but especially effective when your second to last ball drains or is in outline). Complete the ramps and right horseshoe and the Death Star Shot lights. Hit that to open the death star and start Victory Multiball (6 balls). Last night I had the hyper loop going with victory multi ball and was able to get a few balls slinging around the hyper loop, whilst playing the other multi balls.
And I agree, so many different ways to play this game. I have a premium at my arcade and LE at home. This game is consistently our top earner after 14 months on the floor and I love playing at home too.
I would say premium is better for hyper loop and exploding Death Star. Both are a rush to play.
I have an LE at home and premium on location. It is still consistently our top earner week in and week out.
