Data East STAR WARS Pinball Machine
This is a STAR WARS pinball machine made by Data East in 1992. There have been other Star Wars pinball machines made over the years, but this one is often considered to be the most fun to play. It features a rotating Death Star to shoot for, a moving R2D2 that the ball passes under, and plenty of modes and content based on the original trilogy. It’s a game that just about anyone can enjoy with a timeless theme. This machine is nearly 30 years old but it was just cleaned and refreshed with a lot of new parts. Here is a list of what was recently done. New power supply with modern components. New dot matrix display. Playfield dis-assembled, cleaned, ramps polished, rubbers replaced. LEDs everywhere except the flashers. Additional LED lighting added in some spots. New playfield plastic set. New drop target decals. New center stationary targets (reinforced and white instead of yellow). NVRAM installed on CPU board instead of batteries to prevent corrosion (no prior damage). New gunmetal powder-coated legs. New leg bolts and levelers. The game now plays great and is good to go for a long time. I already went through the boards and replaced some faulty transistors, checked/changed fuses, checked connectors, etc. The GI connector got a little toasty but seems solid and should no longer be an issue since the machine now has LEDs. The sound board has been rock solid with no issues. With a new power supply and no prior battery corrosion (and now NVRAM), the game should continue to be quite reliable. Since this is a nearly 30 year old game there is some wear and tear, but overall it now looks great. The playfield shows very little wear aside from typical wear in the shooter lane and by the drop targets. No exit trail wear from the scoops as is common on the title. The flippers are strong, all coils work, all switches work. The death star has some wear but spins as it should and the target assembly works fine. R2D2 bounces as he should but his head does not rotate. The cabinet had a fair amount of nicks and scratches around the edges that have been touched up in a matching blue paint and are now barely noticeable. There are some chips at the back edges of the cabinet head, also painted but more noticeable. The cabinet sides look great with nice color and minimal wear except for around the flipper buttons. The cabinet bottom was reinforced a little, cleaned up, and is structurally sound. There is a darth vader topper that looks very much like the original. The translite looks great backlit by LEDs and with few marks. The speakers sound fine. The launch handle/button works as it should. There is a sticker on the coin door and on the flippers, just custom add-ons. If you don’t like the flippers I can replace them with new ones. Please look over the pictures carefully and let me know if you have any questions. Transit time is typically 1-2 weeks. This means that if your game stops working, whether 3 weeks or 3 years after you bought it, we will do our best to diagnose your machine and provide or source replacement parts at cost. Our goal is to keep your game up and running so you remain a satisfied customer, not sell you service or parts for profit. Most of our business is repeat, after all.
