Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Now if it just swivels a bit left to right and doesn't pickup the ball? Yeah...

The baby Yoda figure kind of reminds me of the Homer doll in TSPP. Homer takes up a lot of real estate in TSPP and swivels occasionally but is boring and adds nothing to gameplay. It is a miss IMHO. Hopefully Yoda will be better integrated in Mando.

Or that is simply an airball preventer plastic.

Could be, looks like a metal ramp flap to my untrained eye tho

Posted pic first on Facebook last night, hundreds of comments until admin took it down. Lol

I wonder if the mini play field helps you forge Beskar into armor each time. You get full armor and you get a ball save.

That'd be cool. (Probably won't happen).

I would be good with that. I has to do something though.

Baby Yoda does jack shit.

Who posted it? Stern?

Are you stating that as a fact because you know? Or speculation?

This is the way....of Stern.

Could be. Hopefully there's some sort of rules element around collecting pieces of Beskar that helps you earn more multipliers, and or unlocking additional modes.

He grabs and eats the pinball but only when you're not paying attention!

So.....speculation???

#1663 6 months ago

I really hope he does something also. Doesn’t look like it from the crappy pics - maybe he’s a Sparky like bash toy.

#1664 6 months ago
Quoted from NightTrain:

Yes... remember Optimus Prime getting hit in the balls by a pop up ramp as a feature? This is the same company...

But seriously you think Baby Yoda is somehow animatronic enough to reach around and grab a ball and do what with it? He's just so far away from anything that would make sense there.

#1665 6 months ago

How many Star Wars pins has Stern made?

#1666 6 months ago

If this is an actual leaked photo then I would say that Grogu is nothing more than a set piece. I hope I am wrong though. Game feels packed. LE looks cool. Probably one of the only games I would want to powder coat the door to match the trim because of how neutral the color is.

Gotcha. Oh yes, I remember. Also Homer on TSPP and the troll on RCT. I'll cross my fingers in hopes that he at least turns his head like Homer....

Right. What do people expect? You think he is going to dance around, juggle balls, and wave at the player?

Yeah. I'm pretty bummed about that coin door. Stern needs to step up their game a bit and start powder coating those. I have no idea why all the other armor would be powder coated and not the coin door. It makes no sense. Why take the time to powder coat the rails, legs, and hinges and then just say "Yeah fuck that coin door. We're done!". It's crazy.

It's just a ton of real estate to put something there that does nothing. Seems like a very strange move. We will find out soon enough. I hope they didn't ditch the pop bumpers just to stick a Grogu on the play field.

because the doors come straight form china with all the wiring attached so they'd have to disassemble them and then powder coat them

Hope so too. There looks like there's something going on in these two areas. Just below the left shoulder of Baby Yoda there appears to be some sort of green flat plastic? Then below his right hand that is reaching out there appears to be some sort of mech there or maybe at least an area where the game will give an effect off of Baby Yoda holding the ball in the air.

the bumpers are probably hidden under yoda and the flasher goes off and he makes some sounds when they are popping off.

And??? Your point?

#1675 6 months ago

If grogu is just a doll they got at Walmart and shoved in there it would a the biggest stern fail of all time. Pretty sure this is a poor photoshop job of the actual game we we shall see.

man you can always pay the $100 and get it done yourself - of all the hills to die on!

#1678 6 months ago

The more I think about it he kinda has to be that big if he is gonna pick up the pinball it be to the correct scale?

#1679 6 months ago

Distros are on the call now!

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

I'm not dying on any hill. I'm simply saying it's crazy to powder coat 90% of the metal and just leave the door out. At least give the customer the option and upcharge for it like Spooky does. I'd be good with that.

I hope he does too but It’s hit or miss from stern. I wished the blimp on LZ would of physically locked the ball but it was just a plastic blimp I could of took off and had my kids play with it

My guess is that the labor would increase quite a bit. I am guessing that they get the coin doors complete from Happ. So they'd have to remove the coin mechs, the coin bezels, the coin reject buttons, the spacers for the dbv slot. It is not only the powdercoating costs, it is the labor costs to do all of the above.

Well Grogu does nothing, thats pretty lame !

#1686 6 months ago

Away we go!

#1687 6 months ago

Just a magnet under baby yoda...I need to watch that trailer a few more times

#1688 6 months ago

Where’s the LE?

#1689 6 months ago
Quoted from NightTrain:

Their point was, a powdercoated coin door will affect 0 sales. Why would they want to increase costs for no reason?

#1690 6 months ago

Thanks for posting. Looks a lot better than the first picture for sure. It looks f-loaded way to go Stern. Hope the code lives up to the art.

How many times can he say Spaghetti Western without getting redundant?

#1691 6 months ago

Too many toys. I'm out.

#1692 6 months ago
Quoted from Looprunner:

I see some pooling and dimples on the playfield!

I’m pretty sure that’s just Mylar peeling

#1693 6 months ago

Dwight on code, according to the article on starwars.com.

#1694 6 months ago

wait is that an upper pf on the pro too? Art on the prem looks awesome.

Quoted from DerezzedKnight:

I’m in!

#1696 6 months ago

I really like the pro/premium art package color tones. At first glance premium art is the best looking I think.

#1697 6 months ago

Has an LE ever sold out this quick?

I don't remember.

Even AC/DC BIB didn't go this quick and there were only 300 of them!

Again METLE went pretty quick but not this fast.

Not even TRONLE went this fast.

#1698 6 months ago

Hard to tell from that video, seems fairly loaded but feel grogu Is for sure a miss as he is the most iconic thing in the show and just sits there.

#1699 6 months ago

Um so those 6 drop targets we heard about for weeks are really 6 standup targets representing the top of Mando's head? Baby Yoda is a doll and does nothing across all models. Upper playfield looks really odd, very little room and just hitting standup targets? WTF lol. Just initial impressions.

#1700 6 months ago

Well looks like Yoda does nothing they could have at least had the magnet elevated then release in front of his outstretched hand.. No reason to get Premium looks like only the articulating pf is the diff?
