I bought my self a starwars for being such a good guy lol. I have to say I'm very impressed. They really did a great job on this. The Overall appearance of the cab looks great. The Yoke feels sturdy and is accurate. I love how you can adjust the vector glow as well. The light up marquee and loud stereo speakers a a great touch . I absolutely love this thing. Sure it's not a real coin op but its damn close.

Awesome -

I was considering getting one and I still may. I have a full size Star Wars and was considering swapping out with an A1up and a different full size - maybe a tempest.

I think the Star Wars was a great build and helped advance the Arcade community as a whole. It brought Star Wars to many folks who never had a chance to get the full size original and drove down the price of the Alan-1's for the reproductions. Good stuff.

I'm blissfully happy with mine; it's the first and only A1UP I've bought.  If they keep making more interesting and quality cabs like this I'll have to buy more.

I could see china copying the yokes and selling them as a stand-alone item for those crappy pandora's boxes or what have you... I think they are the only a1up product worth having atm, but they seem bound and determined to make any license they get ahold of so I'm sure more interesting stuff is coming.  Can't wait till they do a racing cab or something really off the wall like 720 degrees.

       A 1up pacman , ninja turtles alphacade running mame ui and a small hyper wheel, 1 1up galaga, a1 up  centipede, and an a 1up street fighter. I use https://deals.consolekits.com/ and brick seek to get these nice and cheap then add new sticks and buttons with some new artwork here n there. I only paid retail for starwars, pac 200.00, centipede was 160.00 and galaga and s.f were 75.00 each

   I'm looking forward to the attack from mars virtual pinball and pacman 40th cab. I'm interested to see where they go. Honestly i hope they make some shooter cabs like a time crisis or house of the dead. I need more room lol.

              I always heard starwars was a very hard game to keep running. Theres a guy named cooltoy on youtube who made a 1up into a starwars trilogy, sadly im notsure how to wire the flightstick or use the emulator he hashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCP6Thlu4U0.
