    I buy components all the time from China.

    Every time you buy 500 blue LEDs, or 1000 resistors off of eBay, they come directly from China.

    I've never had any duty, taxes or customs problems.

    All that being said, the LED pinball bulbs I bought directly from China were really dim and crappy.

    Games like Meteor will need a new driver board (or a lot of resistor soldering) to use LED in the inserts.
