Star Wars was meant to have a lockdown fire button plate but was removed for cost reasons.

In keeping with the tradition of Steve Ritchie's last few games, this is what I've come up with and will be going to the laser shop the end of this week. All of Steve's games have a laser cut fire button plate unlike the other ones by other designers that were silkscreened.

Once I get a price estimate down I'll update this thread but I'm taking preliminary orders on this.

I wanted to come up with something where the player and the user could walk up to the game and immediately look at that and know what to do or what it's used for. Specifically you are firing at Tie Fighters during that mode and during the video mode you're using it to speed up your Millennium Falcon.

Plate will be brushed stainless steel laser cut with high-quality 3M adhesive peel and stick on the back easy installation.

PM for interest and to order.
Thanks

Update: Introductory price is $40 US that includes shipping and a bubble mailer and 3M tape adhesive. After Jan 5th price is $45 post paid.

These will be ready to ship first week of January. if somebody outside the US wants to purchase one just contact me and I'll get a shipping quote.
I of course will post a few pictures when they get completed on my game as an example.

Looks great. I'm interested. Maybe reverse the Falcon image so it's flying in toward the middle?

I've had three revisions on this already and the image posted at the top is the final. And with Steve's conversation privately I'm sticking with what I have offered here.

The falcon pointed in the other direction just didn't look right on the overall image on the plate, I tried it. Actually looks like a chase this way so I do like it anyway.

I would advise a little more space between edge of cutout. Otherwise sweet. I was waiting for stern to step up to the plate on this.

Cutouts are pretty close to the edge. Just make sure you check a first article sample and confirm it doesn't bend/deform too easily and looks good.

Interested depending on price. Any way to have some cut with rivet holes like the factory ones? As an operator I don't want it to be stolen. Keep us posted.

#15 2 years ago

PM sent. Absolutely beautiful!! One of the most needed mods in this game.

#19 2 years ago

Interested depending on price.

#20 2 years ago

Thank you. Just paid for... Looking forward to receiving this much needed mod. If the quality is good this will sell extremely well. We need more people like you out there trying to make pinball better. Keep up the good work.

Thanks again.

Select and Action with some light sabers would be simple enough and yet cover the broad range of uses of the button.

#22 2 years ago

I'm interested too

#23 2 years ago

Nice work Jason. Cramer needs one of these on his SW Premium.

#24 2 years ago

These are hitting laser this week.
Was tough to get everything lined up for the holiday week.

#25 2 years ago

Giving a price break for the people that pre-ordered $40 postpaid delivered.

After January 5th product in hand they will be $45 postpaid.

Again, laser cut high quality 16g brushed stainless steel.
P.m. me inbox for an order.
Thank you
-Jason

Any chance to do a Death Star theme with “You may fire when ready” under the button? Give it an actual SW quote and reference to the button?
