Stern Pinball today released detailed pictures of their upcoming Star Wars pinball, together with a press release giving more details.
Let’s start with the art packages on the three different models.
The Pro features the most complete set of characters and ships from the three movies.
The Premium edition’s artwork is all about the Empire’s characters, space ships and attack craft.
The Limited Edition’s backglass shows the moment the Millennium Falcon jumps into hyperspace, while the rebels’ characters and ships make up the cabinet and backbox art.
On the playfield, the artwork is very similar on the Pro and Premium/LE variants.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison. As with all the pictures here, you can click for a much larger version.
Here’s what Stern Pinball had to say about their new title:
