Quoted from Coyote:

I was going to create a decal for it - like I did the Meteor - but I ended up having Chris/HEP redo my factory, so I never got around to it. I may be able to toss together a sheet of decals, but it would take some time.

oh, since it's been sitting for 10+ years there's no hurry. I was excited when I got it but then the responses were "why is it pink?" (pink variant).

I don't REALLY need to swap it, but one of my award inserts along the bottom occasionally pops up when it's really dry or humid I forget which, and it affects the roll of the ball (plus will end up causing some wear.....) Rest of the PF is nice since I bought this game a year or less off of a location that saw very little use.

(Frr the record, I actually have nothing against the pink version - the first TZ I owned was the pink, and I didn't even NOTICE it until after I got my sample game..!)

Quoted from Coyote:

Does your TZ playfield have all the text on the center door? (Seriously. Wondering if he fixed that.)

Well shit. I didn’t even notice :/ missing “piano awards lit value”

Now I’m disappointed

Same here just looked at mine, also has some ghosting and clear issues up in front of the clock target where the ball has bounced.
If I don’t put my reading glasses on it’s all good!!!

At least without the piano text leave the slot text off too!!

F*ck.

Quoted from slochar:

I believe it was just an accident, oversight. (Like 99% of CPR's issues, apparently). I send him an email, pointing it out, and never got a reply back.. So unsure if he ignored me or didn't get the email.

Not defending Mirco…

There's something that I've noticed in this hobby that I haven't seen anywhere else. I'm wondering if anyone has any insights into why. I regularly see posts where someone isn't happy with a product, wants to return it, and expect the seller to pick up the cost of return shipping. If you don't like something, ship it back on your own dime.

#108 38 days ago

How about do it right or don’t bother?

People have gotten accustomed to free return shipping from big businesses, and expect the same from small businesses.

If a product is defective or not as described, the seller should pay to ship it back. If the buyer simply has buyers remorse or no longer wants the item, he or she should pay return shipping.

A buyer should never have to pay extra shipping due to seller error.

If you dont like, is not the same as defective or broken.

Agreed... but "defective" is subjective.

Quoted from drsfmd:

If you sell a reproduction product, then it is reasonable for the buyer to assume that it is of the same quality as, functions the same as, and at least matches the reliability of the original.

It’s the sellers fault for knowingly putting garbage into the post and then hoping the buyer accepts it. It’s not the customers job to do QA for them, and it certainly shouldn’t cost the customer significant international shipping fees (on large products) for the privilege.
