Quoted from Concretehardt:

Did we ever find out why Stern halted production on the February run of ac/dc?
I really hope they get this all figured out before they start cranking out the march run.

I've been pestering Pupo about it and he said the delayed orders would be in the March run following the Tron Pro run. Reiterated to me it was the playfields. And to be clear -- I don't think that intimates that the ones that went out were bad -- just that the ones they didn't produce were not going to be acceptable.

Maybe the guys in on the ac/dc march run will benefit from all the rumblings from this board about QC issues.

I hope so I'm expecting mine in March

Quoted from flashburn:

Yeah, I've already tried pulling on it. That worked at first, because the front of the cannon was hitting the ramp (now it slides under it a little), but the back of the cannon is hitting the ramp. I really don't like the idea of having to cut into the ramp at all.

Yeah I pulled mine up too but still had to shave some of the lip off with a razor. My left horn has the most noticeable defects of all. It is very irritating because now I see it everytime I play.

I'm supposed to be unboxing mine tonight. You guys have me a bit paranoid.

Relax, it'll be fine. I unboxed mine last week. No major issues. Game is great!

I too received my NIB AC/DC last week. Absolutely no issues with cannon, playfield etc. Great game!
Enjoy your unboxing with hopes you have no issues!

had to shave down the ramp to make the cannon work and my playfield has very noticeable spots on the clear part Even my 7 year old was like " hey dad, why does it have all those spots all over?" The game is a blast to play though and my family is really enjoying it.

Am I the only guy who's February-run order was postponed until March?!?

Big update.

Just heard back from JJ. Stern is going to replace my playfield for me. They are going to send me a populated playfield so I can swap it out. Hopefully the replacement will be defect free.

Big thanks to JJ for pushing this for me. I cannot recommend him enough for a great guy to buy your next NIB pinball from. He has worked hard to get this problem fixed.

JJ is the only way to go!!

That's great to hear. Hopefully they will look over your playfield a bit better before they send it out.

Sent Pat an email about my issues, still waiting to hear back. If nothing by next week, I'll see if JJ can help out.

Be sure to carve your initials in the bottom of the old PF. When I finally get mine I want to know if it is redistributed.

Just bought my AC/DC Prem earlier this month with Zero defects in that department. I do agree that at 6k price point the machine should be cherry or made that way with a little bonus for people like you that suffer even in the slightest. That said, anyone that buys/plays an AC/DC Prem will not be disappointed! I Agree with McCune above FUN factor rules!
