Star Wars in it's cubby hole in the game room. Thankfully Kylo had a good game, so he didn't go wacky with that saber.. :)

The pinsound + flipper fidelity is capable of drowning out the surrounding pins in John Williams awesome-ness.  Hopefully you'll be able to hear it but I want to be a good pin-neighbor on the show floor.

The illuminated flipper bat kit is RGB and can be pretty much any color.   I liked the stark white to play off the Storm Trooper art.  Though, Red, Green, Blue gives you the lightsaber feel.    You can get this kit here:

I've tried many different types of lit flipper buttons.  The ones I like the most are from Pinball Life.  I feel like they hold up better than the L-Board alternatives.

Original DE MPU - batteries replaced in January 2018, no damage here.   Rottendog Playfield Power Board and Power Supply, though I have working originals.   The RD power boards seem to provide cleaner power than the original boards.

Original Playfield Power board.   Works.

Original Power Supply.  Works but the board has some heat cracking on the back.  The RD board seems to provide cleaner power anyway.

Game Audits from the Show

I freed one stuck ball all weekend.   The pin help up great all weekend and had a steady line of people on it, which I really liked to see!
