Im going to try to get some frames and some java up here soon, Geocities wont let me upload some of the script necessary for Java. I've been receiving email from fellow DE pinball fans. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I am glad to see an audience out there. It motivates me to keep this going. I also got an email from Jim Wilks who thought of the idea of having a DE owners database. I think that would be great. I will work on it. Thanks Jim! Remember, if you own any of these fine machines and you have any further info such as rule sheets, game notes, ups and downs of the game, special features, please send them in, as it will only make this site more informal. Or just plain Ideas for the site. I will be sure to mention you. See those games with no links? Those are games I COMPLETELY have no information about, (pics ect.)  email=

Welcome to this new site! When I recently did a search for my favorite pins by Data East, I could not find very much. This site should solve that problem. I recently acquired my 1st. pinball machine 1987 DE Laser War, Data East's 1st. machine. I have always liked Data East machines (loved their themes) but I did not expect one to be my first machine. I just wanted to buy whatever I could afford and fix it up. I bought it untested for $175. I could not test it because it was from Deuth England and the voltages and power cord were not set up for USA. When I was looking at it, I figured "how many junk pinballs do you know of that have all busted CPU boards"? After all, the boards all looked (and smelled) clean with no dust on them. It was a risk but after modifying the Transformer wiring and power cord it powered right up(with a little smoke from stuck-on solenoids). Since then, the machine is in great condition after doing some heavy playfield cleaning, work on the CPU board and replacing a few solenoids and lamps. Since this site is under construction, there will be only a few pages up at this time. I will try to have frames up in a few weeks, for now just click the links below.

Data East was bought out by Sega in 1994. Gary Stern (Stern Co.) bought the company in 1999.

After a meeting at Gary Stern's (founder of Stern Pinball Co.) house in 1987, Data East's Mr. T. Fukuda, Joe Kaminkow (then Executive Vice President of Engineering), and Shelley Sax (J.O.A.T.) made the commitment for Data East to fund a new pinball company. In 1993, after producing such successful games as Jurassic Park, Lethal Weapon 3, and Star Wars, Sega acquired the company. "From our perspective, the Sega acquisition was great for us," Gary stated. "We were very happy working with the fine people at Data East, and we made great games. However, as the typical cycle in the pinball business turned, Sega's commitment gave us the financial and technological wherewithal to make even better games."
 Sega sold its pinball division to Gary in the fall of 1999, and Stern Pinball segued into its current incarnation. Since then, Gary and his team have built Harley Davidson, Striker Xtreme, and South Park, which was voted Best Pinball of the Year by RePlay Magazine in 1999. Said Gary, "I have spent my business life learning the pinball manufacturing business and making pinballs. I intend to continue."
