    Star wars the next Stern Table?

    The talk of Star Wars being the next Stern release seems to be gaining a lot of momentum with some of the pinball pod casters and overseas forums.

    Might be a little early for a reveal so soon after Aerosmith, but May the 4th and a 40 year anniversary seems like the perfect date.

    The key facts from multiple sources (so probably pretty accurate)

    - Steve Ritchie design

    - Based off original trilogy not new films

    - LCD screen (a given for Stern from now on, expect maybe for their vault additions)

    - magnet toy that accelerates the ball, maybe similar to turbo charger in High speed 2

    Still unknown

    - coder probably going to be Dwight as Lonnies just finishing Aerosmith and Lymann is still working on Batman 66. Couldn't see them brining in new blood for such a key title.

    - Art - hand drawn or photoshop. If the LCD incorporates scenes from the movie which is pretty much a given. Then it's probably going to be more photo based or maybe photo realistic drawings like Batmann 66. Jersey jack with WOZ & Hobbit have shown photo shop pins can still look amazing.

    - Super Le additions? Will defiantly be LE Premium & Pro

    Guaranteed to sell a ton of tables. Would be surprised if it becomes Sterns highest seller ever.

    Personally I just hope Ritchie is able to capture the Star Wars world. He makes great tables but theme is sometimes second to flow and shots with his designs.

    What's everyone's thoughts on the theme, must have or wait and see how the game plays?

    Good collection of information. Dwight on code. I am praying for code scoring balance. Instead of crazy multiplers.

    Wish it was Lyman. Damn you batman!

    With the exception of the playfield art I think he nailed the theme on Star Trek.

    Keen to see what they do with this licence, would have loved to see JJP do it though.

    Doubt this will be a purchase for me but will hold judgement till I play one.

    If anyone is keen I would order quickly! Flippers will be out in droves on this title.
