Quoted from cottonm4:

Is any thing stamped anywhere telling the country of manufacturer? Made in U.S.A? Made in China? Anything? I don't the Stern factory workers are doing this kind of work.

Stern games are made in USA

I stopped buying all the latest products
Lots of flaws , they are just too busy cranking out stuff for that almighty $
You can expect problems right out of the box

Wish they slow down a bit and work in the quality.

Quoted from cottonm4:

Can you just answer the question? I did not ask about Stern games. I asked if the topper had a label telling of country of manufacturer.
As for expecting problems right out of the box, I am 2nd owner on my LE that had 55 games played when I bought it. I have several hundred games on now and have not had any problems. So, since you brought it up, what kind of problems should I, or anybody else be expecting out of the box? Other than the issues cropping up with The Beatles play field of late, what kind of problems should I be experiencing? Speak up, man.
Back to the topper:
If the topper was made in any other country other than the U.S. then it must be labeled as such.
If the topper is being produced in the U.S. then the company can say Made in U.S.A. Or the company can be silent about its product being made in the U.S.
So, if Stern farmed out the production of these toppers to a foreign country, somewhere on that topper and/or the shipping box, there needs to be a label stating this. If Stern farmed out production to some whiz-bang company from down the street, or if Stern is producing in-house, there needs to be no declaration that the product was made in the U.S.
Without someone confirming to seeing a foreign label on their topper, I will assume U.S. production. Does it really matter? No, not really, but if U.S. produced, then anybody who likes to crow about the junk coming in from China will have to realize that the U.S. is just as capable of pushing crap out the door, as well.
If Stern produced these toppers then shame on Stern for sub-standard line assembly practices Stern should know better; There is no excuse for shipping what every pinsider says they are receiving.
If Stern contracted out to a U.S. suppler, then Stern, who has employed several subcontractors, should have vetted the supplier before signing the contract.
My question remains: Is there a label for country of origin on these toppers?

Thank you. And yes, other than a minor issue with my LE ( a lazy line worker took a shortcut that Stern Q.C. did not catch ) it is built like a tank. I have not noticed any deficiencies in assembly, construction, or playing action.

You clearly don’t scroll enough through pinside to read about problems people have with games
Name a few: Iron Maiden, ghostbusters,kiss, Deadpool etc etc etc

With that said , Stern should have tested these if they were made elsewhere before shipping to consumer. If Stern designed these would they not see if it works properly ?
