The first Star Wars Pin I can remember is:
The Empire Strikes Back – 1980 by Hankin. It is based on the Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back. The machine was designed by David Hankin and was the last built by this manufacturer.
The Empire Strikes Back was the first Star Wars pinball machine ever created. According to Pinball Memories, this game was first exhibited in November 1980 at the National Amusement Machine Operators Convention held at Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia. Only 350 were made.
