My Data East Star Wars pinball is currently on the floor in my conservatory with its playfield glass off, ready for some repairs:

Star Wars Pinball

Star Wars Pinball

I’ve not looked at this for a while, so had the backglass off to make sure the batteries had not leaked – all was ok, and the batteries are in a remote battery holder anyway, away from any PCBs they could damage.

On visual inspection I have some damaged plastics, so have ordered a new “Easy break plastics #2” set from Pinball Heaven. Along with some new leg brackets as mine have knackered threads, and a few other bits and bobs. Hopefully I can have this working soon!

Unfortunately I do not have the space to keep this pinball so early next year it will be up for sale, which I’m fairly sad about 🙁
