Quoted from galore2112:
I’m serious. How desperate and integrity challenged does one have to be to give him and the companies he works with their business after seeing this? Shame.
Yes, pinball is great but it’s just a toy. I would never feel the urge to buy a product with a playfield from such a person, no matter how good the theme.
Mistakes happen, yes, and that’s understandable. But to knowingly sell a defective product, one that looks spectacularly good at first glance but isn’t holding up to its intended use and not taking *any* responsibility is simply unforgivable and the people buying it are part of the problem. It looks very bad for everyone involved. Him, the pinball companies who use his products and also the customers who enable this.
And that performance at a major trade show (yes, that’s what TPF has become). Unreal.
The examples where he gets the alignment, scale and colors right are wonderful show pieces, fit for hanging on a wall or a collector’s edition that is just an investment (though Bitcoin and stocks are better, more convenient) and doesn’t get played.
He makes good looking decoration but sub-par playfields.
What about companies that allow him a platform to continue selling defective products?
