They already did this with Jurassic Park.

They charged extra for a code update?

Well, there's a terrible but unique mode that is only unlocked if you have the Stern JP topper.

Quoted from zpinman370:

Wow so looks like this IS NOT the theme people want going by the poll - very interesting.

I’m 47 and grew up on Star Wars. I love Star Wars, but the original Trilogy. I don’t have the same love for anything past that. In fact, I’ve never even watched the Madolorian. That’s not to say it isn’t great. It’s just that I bet a lot of buyers that are of my vintage (which are most buyers) feel the same. Life is busy and that’s the reason for the existence of nostalgia. You can reminisce without having to put in any effort. You just can’t pay attention to everything with jobs and kids and lives like you used to be able to do.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Code/rules come very late in a game’s production. You can make any rules and content once a physical design is done...usually inserts are vague enough to go along with any rules you want to create. The game will have both seasons worth of content/story.

That's great to hear about it having both seasons, I sure hope so! Kaneda said he thinks the game will be based on season 1, not season 2...However, he also said that (spoilers) a model of Slave 1, Bobba Fett's ship is in the game which doesn't make any sense if the pin is based just on season 1 as Slave 1 doesn't appear until season 2.

Now I'm imaging a mode with this scene and sound affects in it. Yup, take my money lol.

If you love the original Trilogy, ignoring Mando is truly your loss. I bet you'd really enjoy it. Give it a go.

Don't project your experience onto others...Mando is huge, fans of old school SW love it. Kids love it. Families are enjoy it together.

It really is a huge IP. Baby Yoda/the child was full on meme status along with "this is the way". The show has some really great moments, music, casting, etc. It has a "feel" that is the closest thing to the original trilogy out of pretty much anything else released in film or tv type content.

Agree! I know what you mean by having that original trilogy feel.. The time period it is set in is also very interesting. The Empire has been defeated, the new Republic has control, you know Luke, Han, and Leia are out there and best of all none of the stupid crap from the new trilogy has occurred yet.

I would love to see some Thrawn material on the screen too. I know he had a few spots on the animated stuff, but the books for him are great. One of my favorite characters. New book just dropped today too!

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

The one thing that would be a deal breaker for me is if the game is only based on the first season. The first season is good but the second season heavily expands on the show and has far bigger moments in it. The fist two seasons feel like they can represent a beginning, middle, and end for the story even though more seasons are coming. Just the first season though? No way, that's really just the beginning of the story. The second season is just so damn good.
The second season came out just last October, that doesn't really sound like enough time to have the 2nd season represented in the game but who knows. I don't see Disney giving Stern details about the second season months prior but who knows.

It wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me, but I can’t imaging them not having season 2 in there. I realize the show isn’t over, but after season 2, it feels very complete.

Man watching that and remembering some of the episodes this is gonna be pretty great. I know many didn't like SW's due the lack of stuff but the code is amazing if they can capture that with access to all the material and a loaded PF done properly? Its gonna look nice next to my SW's.

#162 5 months ago

Well, I have never done this before...committing to buying a game without having seen it much less played it. But, I really like all of the Sterns in my collection and my intuition tells me that this one is worth taking the chance so I am now in on an LE. If I am wrong, watch for my PINSIDE ad, lol.

I’m in the same boat man! I’m all in on an LE sight unseen. F it. You only live once, right?

Just started to watch this show with my wife. Loving it so far. Excited to see what Stern does with it!

#168 5 months ago

Enjoy! It’s really good. I’m about to run through it again.

I hope Kaneda is wrong about the spaceship going to be the Slave 1. C'mon, as much as I love Boba and his ship it's gotta be the Razorcrest.

That being said, wouldn't it be cool if somehow Stern puts in a mode when Boba releases the seismic charge bomb from the back of his ship? Hit a scoop with a video playing Boba releasing the bomb, the pin goes dark and silent and when it explodes we get a light show with a multiball!

Sorry, I just had a nerdgasm. Getting a napkin now.

#171 5 months ago

Anyone else kinda hoping that the pro doesn’t have the upper playfield?

You shouldn’t have any worries

#173 5 months ago

I was hoping the razor crest itself was the upper playfield. Like he said hit something to bring down the ramp, then be able to get up to Upper playfield. I like upper playfields/mini playfields i just dont want to be there ALL the time like on swords of fury. I didnt mind it on BK SOR.

Oh yeah! There's some awesome ideas there.

I can see the Slave 1 seismic charge being dropped, the playfield going dark briefly and then once its denoted an insane light show going off that starts spreading out from the center of playfield with the explosion sound playing. That's a must!

Thanks for the petty downvotes Thunderbird, sad lol.

I am your age and I have to say that The Mandalorian redeemed the Star Wars franchise for me - it really is a very good show. If the pin is good it will be hard for me to pass. If the pin is not good, than no theme can carry it.

#177 5 months ago

I liked force awakens (only good SW thing since 83) but Mandalorian changed the game. Episodic TV is the way to go, which is why I had a ton of fun with 2 Marvel shows full of characters I couldn't give a shit aboot from movies I feel the same way.

#178 5 months ago

I hope this happens... just be a cool theme and art package.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least because Star Wars sells.

people rag on the last Star Wars game but they are still selling a ton of those ( and its great unless you suck at pinball and cant handle it)

#179 5 months ago

Do yourself a favour and just watch the first episode.
You will thank me.
It’s like a Star Wars western. They did Star Wars justice.

dood i was just like you - but bored I watched ep 1 - didn't stop, me and the whole family LOVE it and most of my family don't like Star Wars.

I don't care for SW at all, and I enjoy Mandalorian. It's just fun and well done....and the music sticks in your head!

And they made sure the legacy of Stormtroopers not being able to hit the broad side of a barn has been retained.

Just got a note from a buddy. He got a call from his distributor that their allotment for LEs was way down this time, and that it was "The Mandalorian".

Take it for what its worth.,,

#184 5 months ago

50+ long wait lists at lots of distributors for a game not yet announced or seen. I’d say there is a good market for this title

No shame in chilling out, seeing how it is, and getting a Premium (or Pro) after the reveal and hype dies down.

#186 5 months ago

For me its In if Season 2 is in and Out if its not. Anyone heard if Season 2 would be included? It would be dumb if just Season 1 was the game.

#187 5 months ago

Season 1 was a 7/10 and Season 2 was a 9/10!

Rumors: Mando will have upper playfield that rotates, with 2 flippers and 6 drop targets according to Kman. Also, rumored to have 2 ships, one that will have a door that opens. Should be fun with Eddie on design.

Sure hope not, games are already insanely priced for what we are getting.

I can say that one distributor I contacted quoted me a price of $9200 for an LE. That should be the same price as LZ and AIQ LE?

Kanada says both seasons (full assets) will be in the game! That’s awesome!

#199 5 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

There are pins that have modes where the player is forced to hit the same shot over and over again. I think that's repetitive and boring.
In GNR you are shooting rotating shots (as on a majority of pins) but there's a set number of them per song, the shot requirements can change as you progress through a song (or collect a song jackpot to stop), and there's mode choreography (animations, music, sound effects, etc) being played as shots are made.
The shot requirements in GNR change by song, and each has a sense of stages as shot requirements change as the song is played through. Each song can be played a multiball or single ball mode, it's up to the player adding another layer of depth. That's entirely different and unique compared to a majority of main modes in say ACDC or Metallica that has a player bashing the same shot over and over again with the same single animation playing. Hit the ramp 10x, hit the orbit 10x, hit the snake 10x...ugh.

Been a long time and I come back and still see you promoting anything made by jersey jack, hehe. Tried GNR here in LA and it shoots like crap. Did like all the lights, but the game play has little to be desired. It seemed like multiball after multiball, just like Hobbit. Hehe. Not sure what else there is to this table except a good light box, with lots of multiballs. Wanted to like it, but everyone I’ve talked to, said pretty much the same thing, not much to the table except the music is fun. But a CD playing does that for not much money, hehehe

One thing we can agree, ugh at hitting ramps 10x, orbits 10x, etc. GNR has similar doing that, because there is not much else to do, except lock balls. Hehehe You’re right GNR is quite boring, with same shots forced ad nauseam into multiballs.
