Oh, my BALLS!

In an open email to Stern:

"Open letter to anyone at Stern,

 Perhaps you don't understand my situation here. I live in a place 90 miles to the closest public pinball machine. I wanted to get a pinball machine at home and purchased a Deadpool Pro New In Box. This is a huge deal to me since I am retired and don't have money like that unless I save for years. Imagine this and everything is delivered without issue, but the pinballs. I got a paper envelope with some packet included that rendered the pinballs completely unusable due to some brown powder all over them. That was 2 weeks ago and still nothing from Stern except this last email. Thank goodness for marcopinball.com to get replacement pinballs, but i still needed to wait 5 days to get them while I looked at an unplayable game. This seems like something from a bad dream, oh, but it is reality. I just got a new pinball hat from Sterns store that I bought, so I know there is at least a Fedex that is picking up. So thank you marcopinball.com for selling me replacements, or I would be STILL looking at a useless machine."

I am in contact with Sterns warranty and merchandise sales. This is still not resolved, but Rebecca said the replacement balls are on the way. Oh boy!

Yikes, never seen them come that way. That is terrible to look at a beautiful machine. Like having a brand new car in the driveway and no keys..... Happy flipping!

Got the same Stern machine new a year ago, the playfield looks like a warzone, all dented, just after 100 games.
The game is fun but the quality of the playfield is below all standards.
Aso have a couple of olde games ( TZ, Addams, Indiana Jones ) no such thing.
