Quoted from JMK:

Generally agree with the consensus as well- sadly out for the time being.
I just sold 2 games to make room for a JP2 Premium and possibly a Wonka LE.
Now it’s a waiting game to see if both manufacturers fully remedy the issue.

It's on the manufacturers to put the confidence back into their buyers and if they fail doing that it's going to be a world of hurt for them.

A spare playfield to lay behind my game that is chipping that I'll never swap myself isn't going to get my business.

After speaking with a few of my fellow nib buyers at a league night yesterday, we've ALL decided to not be buyers until something happens to put our confidence back in. There was also a Jurassic Park on loan yesterday from the local distributor and you could see the damage. The host's Pirates was also chipping.

I'm just saying our little group represented a high ratio of game purchases and that can't be isolated. This (buyer confidence) is going to be a huge problem for Stern and JJP.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

How are deadpools holding up? Any reports of this issue on those?

I looked at my LE when this was first reported but saw no issues.

Quoted from venom112:

The LE’s should be going out to buyers by now and they aren’t.

Good observation. They know the microscopes will be coming out when those games are delivered and they better be confident in them.

So is this "it"? Is this all it takes to remedy? I guess we have to wait 4-8 weeks and check in with the new owners.

Quoted from jfh:

Expo will give both Stern and JJP an opportunity to be straight forward with the community about the issue and how they intend to make sure playfield quality is solid going forward and how those with issues with sloppy playfields will be addressed. If they don’t volunteer, we need to press them with questions. We cannot sit back and accept their assertions that pooling is normal and that these playfields are not defective.

I'm predicting a very tense and awkward Stern talk at Expo where they cling to the narrative that there are very few machines affected, and those affected should talk to their distros. And that is all that will be said.
