Stern has finally unveiled their newest pinball machine, and I’m actually pretty excited for it. Steve Ritchie’s Star Wars Pinball will be released later this year. Currently there’s only a video showing the machine off on the Star Wars Facebook page, and we have some screencaps from that to give you a good look while we wait for further info from Stern. It looks like there will be a pro, a premium, and an LE. Personally I like the art, as it reminds me heavily of the older Data East machines. The three are focused only on the first trilogy, which is fine and all, but I would have liked a nod to Rogue One or The Force Awakens. I’m not privy enough to know what Disney does and doesn’t allow, so the first trilogy is obviously a safe choice.
I personally want one, but I’m not sure when I’ll get it to review for everyone here. It looks like a ton of fun, and I can’t wait to see some official pics from Stern!
