A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… STERN Pinball brings Star Wars back to the world of pinball! Boasting their latest in pinball technology, Star Wars allows players to experience the heart stopping battles of the first three Star Wars films in an entirely new way.
STERN Pinball’s Star Wars is the perfect commemoration to 40 years of arguably the most iconic sci-fi series ever made. Being the first new Star Wars pinball machine since 1999’s Star Wars: Episode 1, Star Wars by STERN revisits the classic Star Wars trilogy, and the saga of the rise of the Jedi against the conquering Galactic Empire. Star Wars’ playfield was designed by pinball legend Steve Ritchie, who was responsible for 2013’s much sought-after Star Trek, and most recently Game of Thrones. The game also includes a high definition LCD screen to replace the standard dot-matrix display often found on pinball machines.
The Star Wars universe is one of the most recognisable and well known sci-fi adventures of all time, and combined with one of pinball’s most beloved designers puts forward a machine that’s sure to be an enduring classic for years to come. This version of Star Wars has even been given a beautiful new artwork package drawn by famed comic illustrator Randy Martinez, who has been working on the Star Wars brand since 1999.
Stern’s Star Wars Pinball is available in three versions – The Pro Edition and the Premium Edition model. A sheet comparing the gameplay features on these models can be read here.

About Stern Pinball:
Stern Pinball, Inc. (“SPI”) designs and manufactures arcade-quality pinball games. It is the only maker of arcade-quality pinball games in the world and is located just outside Chicago, Illinois.
The company traces its lineage to Philadelphia in the 1930’s when Sam Stern got into the business of operating pinball games. These new games were all the rage in bars and restaurants, and game operators were making a very good living. Sam became so successful as an operator that he soon became a game distributor as well.
In 1947, Sam visited Williams Manufacturing Company in Chicago where, according to pinball industry folklore, he brazenly put his feet up on Harry Williams’ desk and asked, “Why don’t you sell me your company?” Because of Sam’s success as an operator and distributor, it took Harry only three hours to decide to sell half of the company to Sam.
Sam moved to Chicago and became President of Williams. Through the ‘50’s and ‘60’s, he and Harry worked tirelessly to build Williams into one of the leaders in the burgeoning pinball industry.
Sam passed his passion for pinball on to his son, Gary, who as a child played in empty game boxes on the factory floor at Williams. Gary was only 16 years old in the 1960’s when he started working for his father in the stock room at Williams.
The late ‘70’s and early ‘80s saw the emergence of coin-operated video games. As the coin-op market evolved, other companies acquired many of the existing pinball companies. In 1986, after the death of his father, Gary founded Data East Pinball, which was purchased by Sega in 1994 and became Sega Pinball. In 1999, Gary bought the business back from Sega and renamed it Stern Pinball, Inc. Less than a month later, Williams announced plans to cease pinball production in order to focus on the slot machine business.
Through the first decade of the new millennium, SPI has continued to carry the pinball banner and promote the game throughout the world. The company has released many popular games, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, Shrek, Batman, Spiderman, the Simpsons Pinball Party and many more. Its games continue to be enjoyed by both pinball enthusiasts and casual players around the world.
This pinball machine comes with a 2 year parts warranty. All parts that are faulty will be replaced. Often we can solve any problems over the phone and supply any necessary components for the customer to fit. If necessary our specialist repairer can visit your home to inspect and repair your machine on-site, but this would be chargeable. Please call us for a call-out quotation. If parts are required which are not carried at the time these will need to be ordered for you, and will sometimes need to be imported from the States – therefore, there can be a wait for the part to arrive.
After our 2 year warranty has expired we will continue to offer you complete support for any problems you have, either over the phone or by email, and can provide a chargeable engineer call out should it be required. Whatever happens, we will be able to look after you and your pinball machine.
Pinball machines are complicated items, which don’t like being moved about, nor do they like the cold or humidity. Therefore, if you chose to move the pinball machine from where we originally installed it, or it is stored in a cold or damp location, our warranty will become null and void. We won’t be able to supply any parts for your machine free of charge if it has been accidentally damaged or you have tampered with it in any way.
