$100k Gets You This Special Star Wars Arcade Machine


May 4, 2013
Do you have $100k laying around and looking for something to buy? If so then this could be for you.

The Star Wars Battle Pod, seen below, comes in two versions which are the standard and premium editions. The asking price? $35,000 for one, and $100,000 for the other.

Bandai Namco today announced plans to offer a home version of Battle Pod, the arcade machine that lets you relive iconic scenes from the original movie trilogy, including the trench run and the Battle of Hoth. In addition to the novelty of its dome screen that helps to immerse players, the machine shoots air and has a rumbling seat.

The machines have been in some arcades in America for a few months now but will soon be able to have one of your own. Bear in mind the price does not include shipping and setting fees. Orders being on June 18.

The $100,000 premium edition units are custom built upon being ordered. They have leather seats and the unit itself comes in one of two designs inspired by either the Rebel Alliance or Darth Vader. Other perks of this edition include a plate with a serial number and your name engraved on it, a special owner's manual, and "exclusive carpeting."

More details on how and when this version can be ordered will be announced on the official website "after mid-June," presumably once the fervor over the exclusive carpeting has been allowed to subside.
