I would be fine with the free playfield. It's not like the game is unplayable with some clear damage, which lets be honest you really have to look hard to find on most games. I would just play the heck out of it and either swap it myself some day if it got really bad or just pass along the PF when I sold it at some point.

Quoted from Raegor:

You're losing value with the blank playfield.
Would you rather buy pin A used with no damage or pin B used with bubbling/chipping + free blank playfield?
I'd take A

Honestly if the game was a year old and had some minor blemishes I wouldn't really discount it much. If the PF was a mess after a year I can see how you would take a hit on resale if you sold it that way. I'd be fine doing a PF swap though and I like projects so not a big deal for me. At 5 years I can see how the game with the replacement PF might be worth more.

Quoted from Mike_J:

Most here aren’t willing or capable of doing the swap.

I understand that this can be daunting for some and it can (I think) lead to expectations that pins should be treated like other consumer products. The downside to this is that this costs the manufacturers more and that gets built into pin prices.

In my local area I know of about 8 people that have bought NIB. 6 of us would be comfortable doing PF swaps, one would not be comfortable and one I'm not sure about.

20 or 30 hours for a playfield swap? Ha.....good luck with that!

Easily done I think.
