Quoted from trk12fire:

Just for time stamp purposes, I have a Deadpool with zero play field pooling issues.

My Deadpool is also fine, no "pooling" at all. Looks like it has thinner clear then the rest of my newer Stern.
But it has ribbing/planking beyond everthing i've seen.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

thank god I live in a country that doesn't let them get away with that. For a £10,000 that warranty is shocking.


I agree... But if Stern and JJP had there business in Sweden they would have been closed down a long time ago.

And then we have no pinball machine to play and complain about.

Quoted from snaroff:

Correct (photo attached).
To each his own, I guess. Fortunately, from the players perspective, it doesn't look nearly as bad as this photo. Just to be clear, this is purely aesthetic...the clear coat is absolutely smooth (i.e. can't feel the wood grain). Nevertheless, it's a sign that the PF's aren't being sanded/smoothed properly...yet another sign of dialing down the labor cost to produce a PF. That's what it's all about, folks!

My Deadpool look like that, from players perspective aswell. I can feel the woodgrain slightly.

Stern just ask for more pictures every time i contact them for there decision, they don't want any closeups...I think i give up now, 6 month and nothing happens.

Edit: That playfield has perfect clear around all posts.

Quoted from cosmokramer:Thats what the want you to do, hence the delay...

I know, but i'm fine with giving up now. The playfield have a cosmetic issue (ribbing/planking), but the clear is perfect.
The way thing are now i don't want to risk getting a new playfield with pooling.

Quoted from gdonovan:

Played Jurassic Park recently, before I even hit the start button my first thought was WTH is going on with the playfield finish? Had to take a picture of it.
For the record the game was pretty fun, shots were great and I scored well on it, the playfield appearance would be cause for my concern. The playfield "cutout" plastics reek of cost cutting, but that is a minor nitpick compared to the playfield surface.
[quoted image]

The cutouts under the plastic looks awful, why are the doing like that?

Ribbing/planking lines on the playfield has been going on for years now. It's a hit and miss when you role the dice with a NIB, Stern consider this as cosmetic and normal.

Quoted from Talon2000:

So Stern finally replied. They said they are willing to send me an unpopulated Playfield.

Is the playfield for Iron Maiden?
Do you know if they done any changes to fix the problem, maybe no art under the posts like they did on JP?
