Lot # 719 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Data East Pinball Machine

Stock #113106

A Star Wars-themed pinball machine, manufactured in 1992 by the Japanese electronic engineering company Data East.

Designed by John Borg, the pinball machine features detailed artwork by Markus Rothkranz, iconic music and sound effects by Brian Schmidt and LED screen and game programming by Neil Falconer.

The machine is mostly made of wood, with metal adjustable legs, a glass pane over the table and plastic paddle buttons and pinball launch lever. The table itself features a pinball-triggered moving R2-D2, glowing C-3PO eyes, glowing bumper corners, and various voices, from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo. The music, sound effects and voices emanate from two Death Star-decorated speakers on either side of the fold-down front display, which also features an LED screen that plays an opening animation of Star Destroyers flying through space, a "bonus" screen with Artoo being disassembled by Jawas, a stormtrooper army screen, and an Obi-Wan "Game Over" screen. The machine features instruction and maker decals, a key that unlocks a front panel to access the electronics, and is powered with a UK mains plug. It has been carefully professionally refurbished and is set to allow for free play. Dimensions: 199 cm x 70.5 cm x 141 cm (78 1/4" x 27 3/4" x 55 1/2")
