5 Things We Love About Arcade1Up’s Star Wars Pinball Machine

Over the last few years, Arcade1Up has been on a mission to bring the arcade experience home. Beautifully reproducing cabinet art and games, the company has released ¾ scale versions of classic titles, such as the original Star Wars arcade game, to great success. But in even better news for silverball obsessives, Arcade1Up has expanded its scope to the world of flippers, bumpers, and skill shots with digital pinball machines — actual cabinets that feature a screen instead of a playfield, and come preloaded with tables — including one inspired by the galaxy far, far away. I recently had the chance to play Arcade1Up’s Star Wars Pinball, and found it to be a fantastic pinball experience, one that longtime and new pinball fans alike can enjoy. Here are the biggest

With IG-11’s Transformation, Kuiil Gives a Masterclass in Patience

In the penultimate episode of Season 1 of The Mandalorian on Disney+, we are re-introduced to IG-11, the assassin droid with a penchant for blowing things up (including himself, if he gets captured). The dangerous bounty hunter was blasted by Din Djarin in the first episode of the series, since IG-11 posed a real threat to the Child, now known as Grogu. However, IG-11 appears to have not only come back from the dead, but has changed his ways, and has transformed from a by-the-book bounty hunter to a nurse droid.

This metamorphosis is courtesy of Kuiil, the wise, empathetic ugnaught who sees new purpose in the dilapidated droid and rebuilds it. Through Kuiil’s tutelage and re-programming, the converted assassin learns to feed and take care of the blurrgs, serve

Grogu Soars in Memorable Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Appearance

This will be a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade long remembered.

The first-ever Star Wars-themed balloons — real and virtual — appeared at the legendary parade, which took place in New York City last week. The Grogu Funko Pop!-inspired balloon, based on the adorable being from The Mandalorian and measuring 41-feet-high, 29-feet-long, and 37-feet-wide, was a sight to behold as it traveled through New York City. The balloon depicts Grogu flying toward his favorite toy: a ball-shaped knob, taken from a lever in the cockpit of the Razor Crest. For Reis O’Brien, art director at Funko, seeing this design come to life was a career-defining moment.

“Seeing the balloon on Thanksgiving morning was beyond a dream come true,” O’Brien tells StarWars.com. “As a kid, watching the parade every year, the balloons were always
