This is some pretty sloppy photoshop work, authentic or not...

I’m thinking no helmet at all in the pro, but all 3 models will get the Hasbro giant baby Yoda.

#1503 7 months ago
Quoted from JRocket:

It would appear that the helmet IS the upper playfield.

Yes, I noticed the flipper it must fold down to play, I don't think it's vertical pf, it would make no sense. Also baby Yoda's hand doesn't seem to have magnet in it....? It looks plastic.

#1504 7 months ago
Quoted from Bellystyle:

That looks like a vertical upper playfield to me. If so, that sucks. Like I've always said, the Pro is always the best. Every time....

You can tell it sucks from that blurry photo?

#1505 7 months ago

Spent a little while digesting the photo... as a fan of the show, I'm pretty happy with the LE backglass art. Nice to see Ahsoka, Boba, the Darksaber, and obviously Din & Grogu. The Armorer, Bo Katan and the Trooper helms on pikes are awesome. Big fan of comic book art, looks simple and clean. This is the Way. (I'm always a little worried about wacky/off art/color packages for LE's like Slimer green GBLE... yuck, no offense to proud owners).

If I'm being honest I've seen sooooo much Grogu (he's literally everywhere... the marketing department at Disney overdid it... he's like a song that's played too much), so the massive toy is the corner is both expected and exhausting. I get it, it makes sense.

I hope the plastic ship finish is more muted/dirty "metal" and not "chrome". I doubly hope it activates and does not bounce on a spring (Baby DP, Tie Fighter...). If it loads a ball and rotates/shoots (aka POTC) holy crap I will be amazed but I'm not holding my breath.

Video/music assets are super important for me personally, and I understand we might get some "voice acting" (as in "Aboboli-bobli-bo" from GOTG)... it happens. So the possibility of custom Carl Weathers callouts are a big bonus, like Chief Hopper on STh or Winston on GB. Love it.

Lastly the vert/moving upper PF "Helmet" is going to be interesting. Hard to pass judgement on it this early, but I hope it's exciting and engaging given it's size/scale. Lots of ramps/wireform/subway potential, will be up and ready tomorrow AM for the big day.

Looking forward to the awkward callouts from Carl Weathers, although he may have a good voice for "jackpot". Seriously, was Pedro Pascal too expensive?
Temuera Morrison would have been nice, or even Rosario Dawson.

"Its all in the hips" "just tap it in" oh wait, wrong Carl Weathers movie

#1507 7 months ago

Let’s be real it’s not even to scale .... I would not doubt if this is based somehow on the real game but thats not it 100%

Why isn’t there a Billy Madison pin?

Gotle armour was black. Only going on the one blurry photo and my opinion may change but it looks like a bit of a cluttered hot mess. More doesnt always mean more. Pro may be a winner here.

#1510 7 months ago

No t molding in the photo

Quoted from John1210:

Gotle armour was black.

Yeah, I fixed my post 2 seconds after posting. I think I'm stills scarred from WWELE Hulk Edition era pinball. I just remember the fire/sand/yellow vibe from GOTLE but was absolutely incorrect about gold. My bad!

Probably chrome t molding and lighting

Look again. It’s there.
It the light reflection that makes it look that way.

Exact opposite opinion. I never even consider the pro.

Pros R 4 Hoes

#1516 7 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

You sure about that? Stern is ok with distros jacking the prices to the moon as they see fit? Not a great experience on the buying side when you have no idea what something may cost despite Stern putting a price on a game.

This is what the LE collecting game has become. Collectors have clearly established that market value is more than MSRP. Don't like it, there will be Premiums and Pros at MSRP.

That has nothing to do with the photoshop job and is the result of the intentionally reduced resolution of the image.

That Mythosaur signet on the ball reflection is #winning

The artists impression of the artwork on the game looks better than the actual game.

#1521 7 months ago

I know this isn't a clear photo but there is alot (too much?) going on here. The playfield looks like it will be cluttered. Hopefully not. I'd be buying a Pro anyway so I'm sure some of that stuff will be pulled.

#1522 7 months ago

Wonder if that tease pic is the style of the LCD animations?

Wonder if they will see my graphic and put it to use in their actual advertisement campaigns. Man im in the wrong marketing industry, I need to work for one of these fun companies!

#1524 7 months ago

Any word on who is on code that could make or break purchases for a lot of people. There are some coders at stern that I won’t buy anymore. Too many bad ones.

I think it's Lonnie Ropp?

I thought this was Stern... super impressive! Nicely done!

Rest easy your pro won’t be cramped.

#1528 7 months ago

Theme is a home run but code makes or breaks it. I’ll wait til code is further along and go pro or premium If it’s any good

You’re out of your mind. Pros are only great for penny pinchers . A rotating upper playfield looks like a blast!

I've felt that way in the past, but willing to wait to see rules (1.0) before I throw anything out. Code has gotten better all around IMO.

#1531 7 months ago

Soooo, whose dropping their LE order? Just kidding folks, put the pitchforks down.

#1532 7 months ago

Only 4 mandalorians on the backglass? Cmon could have squeezed a few more on there, no?

Oh wait the LE badge makes 5 - thank goodness! Game is gonna rock!!

Bill Burr. Bill fucking Burr. I bet he'd have a great jackpot callout.

#1534 7 months ago

He’s on the art package. Hopefully on the LCD/in modes as well.

#1535 7 months ago

Assuming some "bounty hunter job" based mission system (hoping), Carl Weathers' character Greef Karga makes sense. He can do custom callouts to track your mission status, bounties collected etc. He's a great pick for game/mission narrator IMO for this reason.

#1536 7 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

He’s on the art package.

Where? Insider info or am I simply blind to miss him on the super-fuzzy photo?

Don't forget the background of the art is Mandalorian helmet so the total is 6

#1539 7 months ago

I really wished they wouldn’t have put a big doll in the corner of these games. I understand it is cheaper than a mech of some sort and eats up real estate for Stern, but I’m just not into dolls.
Also, I’m pretty sure we’re getting really bright, colorful, comic art on all three instead of the cool western styled art that is shown in the credits of the show.
I like the artists style, but I really wanted something different than the Star Wars comic edition.

Pros always have room to add toys!

#1541 7 months ago

Since it's Eddy on design, where's the flying cow?

#1542 7 months ago

This art package makes me realize his much I love ZY even more.

Completely agree on that point.

I'm with ya. I really hope Baby Yoda is an actual toy in the game and not a larger one of these that does nothing...

What are you saying? That one bounced up and down!

Now you are making me wonder if it really is a doll that Stern has modified to rotate left and right a bit lol.

ohhhhh, hadn’t realised that! Nice one!

#1550 7 months ago
Quoted from turbo20lbs:

Seriously, was Pedro Pascal too expensive?

I’m 12 episodes in and haven’t heard him say anything above a gravely monotone. Works for the character, not for callouts that have to compete with other pinball noise.

It was probably either Carl Weathers or Horatio Sanz. Count your blessings.
