    Just got a MET Pro and one of the legs looks like it was bent, like something was wrong with it, compared to the other legs on the machine. However, I recently played TWD on location, and all the legs on that machine looked like my bent leg.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I just wish they sent me the same type for all 4 legs.

    It doesn't seem to look any cheaper. What's nice about the bend is that it sticks out further from the machine and doesn't hug the cabinet as much. I suspect that will be less potential damage to the cabinet from the leg rubbing on it.

    I sent an email out to Patrick Powers the other day and am waiting to hear back from him.

    I would say 2 of my legs on my MET are this way and 2 of them are "normal".

    Here's Patrick Powers' reply when I emailed him about the bent legs:

    "The legs haven’t changed in awhile. You will notice a little separation between the cabinet and the leg but that is caused by the cabinet protector mounted to the cabinet."

    I received the replacement from Stern today, and that leg is bent as well. Here's some pictures comparing the leg they sent, next to "non-bent" legs:
