Arcade Machine Help

Post by Stuart Skinner »

Evening gents

Looking for some help, trying to put together a lost of all the Star Wars arcade machines there have been since the first movie in '77 through to the modern day.

If anyone can remember any, and even better find a photo, would be really appreciative.


1983. Atari Star Wars Arcade Machine (Stand Up)
1983. Atari Star Wars Cockpit Arcade Machine
1984. Atari Return of the Jedi (Stand Up)
1985. Atari Empire Strikes Back (Stand Up)
1999. Star Wars Racer Arcade
1999. Star Wars Trilogy Arcade Machine (Stand Up)
1999. Star Wars Trilogy Arcade Machine with Namco Seat
1999. Star Wars Trilogy Arcade Machine (Sit Down)

There was also an Empire game, which was actually a conversion kit for the original Star Wars stand up game and cockpit, replacing the game chip and game surrounds rather than bringing out a completely new version. Released in 1985, the year after the Jedi game.

There’s a new one that came out a couple of years ago, I’m not sure what it’s called but they have it at Bournemouth pier.
I’ll try and find out for you.

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't post this pannel from Celebration Chicago. :lol: Unfortunately, I wasn't able to film this one but I put the audio together with the slides. All 20 panels are on that youtube channel, 15 out of 20 have the full video (camera on presenter + slides).

This Arcades panel is quite interesting as it includes gameplay footage for each cabinet & pinball discussed, and I think they cover all of them. There was an earlier SEGA trilogy cabinet in here that I'd not seen before.

That's right I've played on it, is it something like battle pods?
