Fair enough. How about the Premium vs. LE?

The layout kind of reminds me of No Fear, which reminds me of F-14, which reminds me of Terminator. Steve Richie has 1-2 playfield layouts in him at best.

How long before people get tired of the same cookie cutter layouts? Time to look at the old SS table varieties again.
Pins: Lightning, Af-Tor, Embryon, Stellar Wars, Beat The Clock, Tropics Isle (project pin)
Gone: Space Station, Top Score, Flash Gordon, Solar Fire, Haunted House, Fire!, Vector, Bally Playboy
WTB: Punk!, Spirit, Elektra, Mars god of War, Cosmic Gunfight, Barracora, Centaur, Centaur II, Medusa, Buck Rogers
Its better to have played and lost than never to have played at all.

The game looks fast, lighting looks great, music is obviously great given the source material, graphics are decent considering how their hands were tied. Oh, and I really like the inner loops on the left hand side.

I was sick of Yoda by the second ball drain. Sick of the HIT THE BUTTON to explode the tie fighters after the first tap of the button. Dwight was yelling "HIT THE BUTTON" to experienced players who had to be repeatedly told to do it. Non-pinheads are never going to know to hit that button. Watching Josh Sharpe hit 8 billion was a turn off too. Easily breaking a billion on any pinball machine is just a turn off to me. Scoring is a fine line to me. Not enough points for an objective and it feels like you are working hard and earning nothing in return. Too many points and it feels like you just have to keep taking random shots to earn 50 million here and 50 million there with ease.

I"m on the fence with this game. I feel it could have been a lot better looking and unique. Instead it just feels like a rehash with new carpet and light fixtures.

For the price I just don't understand the logic to even consider this game. Especially the Pro. Fine it plays fast.and there is 12 multiballs. and lots of modes...but for close to $9K you get a plastic death star with a few LEDS and you get a tie figther on a spring. Stern should be ashamed of themselves. From what I hear not a lot of people are lining up to get one. My only interest is with the prem hyperdrive but I'm not paying those stupid prices either. And then just you wait what they will release in their store that they've stripped out to make even more money. Sorry Stern not this time.

I call bullshit on that too because they've been paying for that development for years now by increasing the prices and reducing BOM and reducing weight of the product. In an article a few days back Jody as quoted as saying that their revenue is up 40% from 2015. I'm sorry but they saw the Star Wars theme, figured they would sell a shit load and tried to squeeze more profit out again. With the dollar in the tank and stern seeming to strip down BOM and features and increase their price I'm not buying anything from them anytime soon.

Physical material on Star Wars
$15 Plastic death star
$3 dollar tie fighter
$.25 spring
$35 dollar LCD Panel

Even the animations are less than stellar, and the fonts used feels like Arial! The danger animation is the shot of a galaxy? Have you ever seen a full galaxy in star wars....apart from the obvious reference....everything is referenced as "systems".

At least put a freaking cool toy on the playfield that interacts with the player..... nope.....but they expect you to pay
$9K and if you want the hyperdrive feature it will be a cool $12K +

But don't worry the price of the topper will be up too because of the theme that way they can fuck us up the ass twice. Am I bitter, absolutely...I really feel they shit the bed this time around.

I found the hyperdrive loop well integrated and combine with the light show and sounds it's look freakin' fun !!
Hyperspace multiball has a completely different dimension now.
