Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

Man your experience is not typical. Sorry the odds worked against you on those somehow and glad you got those good players worked out.

His experience is typical for many, I personally know others that have had issues with just as many games in a row, they don’t go come on pinside to tell, but it’s happening.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

And I know alot of people who never have had any NIB problems.

I think the poll in the GOTG thread says a lot, I know the numbers are higher now, but 119 are not buying any more stern games? That really lets you know that Stern has some unhappy customers.

Quoted from PtownPin:

same....whats a good price on nice condition slugfest? theres one locally for $1800

1400-1800 seems to be the rate for slugfest in great shape, any that are beaters are 1100-1300

I’ve always been a stern fan and supporter. The comments on the spike system are all true. The last 4 games I’ve had NIB all have had issues. Stern does warranty the issues, but is very slow at doing so. The most troubling part is when the warranty items that get sent are also defective. No new Sterns for me!

Quoted from Who-Dey:

I haven't been seeing too many complaints lately. If you are waiting for them to be 100% perfect though you will never buy another new game ever because that's never going to happen. I wouldn't be afraid to buy a new game right now personally. Thats just me though.

Spike system is a lemon and problematic. There has been plenty of complaints, but most are keeping quiet because they fear it will De-value their games. I used to defend stern all the time, just like you , still love my Iron man and metle. I too was in on the IM LE , but I’m out for the same reason, too many issues, iam a fearless repair man, but in this case I will pass until the current operating system is proven
