    Here's a look inside the Back Box of my new Stranger Things. What's wrong with this picture?

    Your camera appears to be upside down.

    I've seen stranger things...

    (one of the instruction cards (or whatever it's called) is mounted upside down..)

    Stern should give you a 95% discount for that game-breaking error

    Actually I'd really like a replacement sticker.
    But I suspect, as are all Stern replacement parts, I'd have to go through a distributor who would probably rather not be bothered with such a trivial thing.
    In a perfect world, and since I live only 40 minutes from Stern, and since Stern has lots of these stickers as they are used in every machine they make, I'd like to just go there, pick one up, and be on my way.
    But since it's not a perfect world, it would likely not be that easy.

    You might be surprised... give em a holler. Even with covid precautions in effect, they could set one outside in a baggie for you.

    Those stickers aren’t adhered too strongly, you can see the edges lifting a bit on yours already. I bet you could pull it and restick it on right side up pretty easily. Id leave it tho, not a big deal imo

    Honestly I know it's kind of a pain when you need to use it, but it's also kind of funny. A non-fault random mistake that reflects these machines are built by humans, which is part of their charm.

    Or, just think of it as you have the "Stranger Things - Internal Upside-Down LE"!

    This may be Stern's version of the Inverted Jenny: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inverted_Jenny

    You're gonna be rich!

    You are right. I was able to procure one with minimal effort. But now I'm not so sure I will replace it. Originally I only saw it as a flaw that needed correcting. And, I'm ashamed to admit that at first I didn't even connect it with the Upside Down part of the game theme - duh. But I'm warming up to the irony and maybe I'll leave it as is.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
