Quantcast

Last week, The Star Wars Show gave the world its first-look at the upcoming 40th Anniversary Star Wars Pinball Machines from Stern Pinball. Today, the folks at Stern (based right here in Illinois!) hit Rock Father HQ with the full details on what they've got coming. Star Wars pinball machines will be available in Pro, Premium and Limited Edition models, each immersing players in a dynamic and challenging Star Wars pinball environment as they battle to restore justice to the Galaxy.

Being as into Star Wars as we are around here, Wednesday afternoons are always sort of a treat when the folks at StarWars.com release new episodes of The Star Wars Show. This week, the crew takes a look at some of the interesting memorabilia on display throughout the Lucasfilm offices at Skywalker Ranch, in addition to welcoming Mayim Bialik, who I'll always remember fondly as Blossom, just because I'm one of the five people who doesn't like Big Bang Theory. But that's not all! The show also serves-up a first-look at the new Star Wars 40th Anniversary Pinball Machine from the wizards at Stern Pinball (based right here in Illinois). Take a look...

I really dig pinball. It's an itch that I don't often get to scratch, and I figure that's largely due to the lack of proper arcades in 2013. As a kid that grew up in the 1980s, I threw down more than my fair share of quarters in the dimly-lit confines of ALADDIN'S CASTLE. In fact, as an adult, I've always wanted to own a really killer pinball machine (not sure where I'd put one), but maybe I'm overdue. When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that my love of pinball would be refueled - and I certainly had no intention of blogging about it. What happened this afternoon is that while taking the girls to Kristof's Entertainment Center in Round Lake Beach,  I accidentally came across the just-released METALLICA Pro Pinball Machine that Stern Pinball put out, and there was no way I could pass up the chance to sacrifice a few bucks to the pinball Gods. Give me Fuel... Give me Fire... Give me that which I desire...
