Ah man, I really did not dig Rogue One at all. It's so grey. All the characters are souless husks. Literally can't even remember the name of the main chick. They had to add the droid in for some comedy as it was all so flat. Tbf it's a masterpiece compared to The Last Jedi but that isn't saying a lot!

First person I've ever heard to slate it :hmm:... a great ode to the 1980's originals for me and far better than the latest SW films.

There's a lot of us. We have to be an underground movement as the people who get overly excited by a CGI uncanny valley Grand Moff Tarkin are angered easily by any dissenting voices. I would somewhat agree, it is better than the newest films which are an absolute disaster for the most part.

The UK price on a home pin is too much.

HLD had them listed at £5.5k
If they retailed at £4K they would stand a chance.
Now add the 25% on top........ depending what happens in the new year.
Stern have priced themselves out of the market.
If Costco had them in the uk like the transformers home pin, they may sell a couple over Christmas to rich families who will eventually put it in the garage and eventually forget about it.
It is a really enjoyable game.
It’s nothing like a pro/premium/LE as this is Gomez designed.

all that Star Wars is a load of old tat since The Mandalorian started. Loving this show more than I thought I would. Just hope Disney don't start to reduce the budget.

Shaun- "Hey Ed, you wanna come around the gaff later to play pinball?"
Ed- "Holy skunk smoke, you got a real Pinball in your cave?"
Shaun- "ermmm......... well........ kinda..........well, not exactly....its a .........home pin"
Ed- " Ahh, I think I've heard about those, aren't they similar to the ones in the arcade but not built as tough, heard they have like MDF in them or somethin, did it cost much?"
Shaun- " 5.5k"
Ed- " fuuuuuckkk - But can't you buy a real one for that price?"
Shaun- oh fcuk off!!!!

^^^^ I’ll pass, screwing things in over time won’t be as good a fix.
I also wonder if these builds are a preliminary field test of things to come in the future. Done under the radar in the guise of Home Pin.

Stern already use a lot of particle board in cabinets.
Pro, Prem, LE? I know they do in the home pins but thought it was limited in the above to only the base board being MDF, changed recently to ply on newer Sterns?
Main cab bodies and reinforcements are surely ply / laminated wood, you can see in the factory when they prep the cabs prior to decals.
Main issue of Home Pins, the whole thing is particle board, just buy a Pro. I’d leave this model to the unsuspecting casual buyer, not sure why a veteran would buy one of these knowing the build quality. Destined to start coming apart at the seams after a few moves...

The comic book art is so great. Would love a blast on one of these. Pinside virgin collective pushing it to the top is classic but I'm glad the negativity towards the game is dissipating a bit.
