    Poor Optimus and his lil' ramp couldn't handle my multiball shots. The machine was turned off and the people at the arcade are pissed.

    Quoted from pinball-junky:

    wtg GoBlue! Somebody had to break it in right?!
    Did you at least get to enjoy a good game before you sent optimus seeking shelter? How was it?

    I think it broke on my third game today. I have played it on a couple of previous occasions. It is a fun pin.

    It's the metal piece with the Transformers logo. It should be attached to the play field, but it came undone. That peice moves up and down to direct shots at Optimus.

    Quoted from smassa:

    Come on now were you really that shocked when it happened??

    No, I wasn't surprised. I first played Transformers last Saturday at a different location and during my first game it was apparent that this part is vulnerable. This part gets smacked repeatedly with the ball and sometimes as it is moving up and down. I think this pin was out on the floor for about 48 hours and I would guess it had about 200 games on it, but I don't really know. It would surprise me if more of these pieces do not break off from the play field, but hopefully it won't be an issue. It will be interesting to see how it holds up during expo and the launch parties.

    Quoted from The_1up:

    The six tiny screws fell out and into the bottom of the cabinet. I fixed it the same day and used locktite on the screws.

    Great. Now that it's fixed, how about refurbishing the pop bumpers on Sopranos and cleaning Sopranos? It would greatly improve the game. Scared Stiff and Grand Prix could use a cleaning as well.

    Quoted from Gusphan:

    There is a price Stern pays by making things cheaply, namely that due to the problems I've had, my Dad is not going to buy a NIB Tron from them. Most likely he'll just snag a Williams.

    Here's the thing: products have problems, no matter what. It's what the company is willing to do once a problem is reported. I'm still waiting to hear from Stern before I go on an official bad mouthing tour.

    Good luck. I emailed their warranty department in the past and never heard back.

    Quoted from The_1up:

    Go Blue....I clean all of the games once a week and I will check out the pop bumpers.

    Thanks Dan. They must get dirty pretty quick. I bet they get a lot of play on weekend nights. Rollergames has been a good addition.
