I agree that CPR needs to sort out the pre-order model. They take years to bring preorder playfields out then get upset when you don’t buy the playfield because you’ve sold it or lost interest.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

because with playfields, you have so many factors that can provide imperfections in fields. A spot too high or low causing the ink to miss spots. Inserts shifting creating edging or ghosting. Crap in the clear. Routing issues. dimple issues. 100's of thing can go wrong. So if you strive for only perfection, what are you suppose to do with the other 80% inventory that has minor or major blemishes? You can't start over. Hence the price level tier. Even then, there is no such thing as a perfect playfield. if you look hard enough, every field has imperfections in it. If you want perfection, you need a different hobby.

Looks great! I've got a few titles I would like to try a hardtop on but would rather a playfield swap. I'm definitely in on an EK playfield. That would be awesome.
