Quoted from Zitt:

Wait, hold up... You are making statements as fact when you have no clue.
Where did I say I've never ordered or installed a Micro PF?
Seriously, my opinion is totally valid. It's you who need to rethink being a tool or shill.

Go ahead and describe your experience with Micro playfield swaps. What titles you have done? Post some pics.

I don't see any JJP games in your collection history. You only have sttng that micro makes a playfield for. So, you did a playfield swap on your sttng then?

#202 1 year ago

Why? To make Mirco's shill feel better? I'm done feeding you troll

#203 1 year ago

Lol,

You have zero experience owning any Micro playfields and zero experience swapping their playfields.

You would be the troll in this thread! Ha!

#204 1 year ago

I see an error on that TZ playfield...

#205 1 year ago

I have a Mirco playfield on my TZ, has some ghosting, pink colour instead of red, text missing on door plus more issues but apart from that it’s great!!!

#206 1 year ago

Mine looks perfect.
No issues

#207 1 year ago
Quoted from turbo2nr:

Mine looks perfect.
No issues

At least text missing on door.
Overall his playfields are great, but he can't release a flawless title.

#208 1 year ago

What text? Show me.

Mine looks fine (I think? )

Piano awards missing?

Chrome apron!

If they made micro playfields I think the GNR owners would be much happier.

#211 1 year ago

Looks great until you look closer
Should have put my glasses on when I bought it but it’s ok I’m used to it now and plays great, just a shame.

Do the Mirco TZ repro’s have the hidden number on the door?

No. No repros would.

Quoted from turbo2nr:

You never ordered or installed a Micro playfield. You "opinion" means jack-sheet.
I have tried all playfields and by far Micro is the best. Restored well over 30 pins.
Go post in a thread with some topic you actually have experience with, eh? [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Maybe you should take a closer look at that Mirco Indy? Maybe the blood on Willies teeth is from eating all them money brains? Now that’s Quality Control

Hi. I don’t see the point for you to get like that whit anyone who post something bad about the playfields. Wherever is true or not everyone has the right to do so. Or maybe Zitt is right this is your second account and you the one is selling the playfields. Either way for me I kept most of my original and send them to be redone [i have a true artist who does it ] however in my Cirqus Voltaire I got a NOS and clear coated pretty good [i do that as a trade]. The problem whit the difference between old playfields and new is this: before they let the wood dry prior to cut and do the play wood [which make the playfields]. Now the cut the wood and just do the plywood and still moisture in it whit time it will dry and in some cases playfields will bend or twist.

Ps. The Indiana Jones bloody mouth look Terrible wrong. I personally will never buy something like that.

You’ll be happy to know Mirco just announced a fix for the Indy Playfield. Much better than adding washers. And besides, female rappers are where it’s at. Word to your mother!

Quoted from pins4u:

There is a recent Youtube video of a tour of the new Stern factory. They now make cabinets and playfields in house. It's shown in the video tour although only briefly.
EDIT: Here it is
Around the 5min mark it shows plywood being CNC'd

FYI. They only cut and clear the wood there. Art and final clear is done by outside vendors.

#222 1 year ago

Well I spoke too soon.

I am original owner of a Wonka.

Opened it late Jan/Feb of this year.

We cleaned it this past week and now see issues everywhere.

Send JJP an email they said the game was shipped to cointaker last year and is now out of warranty.

So I am stuck with a garbage playfield. BOO!

Clear is delaminating from wood, tears, issues around posts and screw holes.

It took JJP Four business days to reply to me saying, "tough shit kid".

Thanks Bengler and JJP! Such a great company.

you suck (resized).png
#223 1 year ago

Melissa at cointaker said JJP no longer warranty any playfields, regardless of where/when you bought your game.

So, that sucks.

Serious? The game shouldn't be out of warranty just because it sat for an amount of time. The playfield debacle is a whole different thing though on how they are handling it now.

Oh wow, I’ve been dragging my feet about taking JJP to court, but this seems like the last straw for me. I’m just finishing a few things at work right now and wrapping up a few projects. Once that is done I’m going to shift my focus into changing this BS new found attitude JJP has.

Even a brand new GNR CE one day old will not have a playfield warranty. No more playfield replacements from JJP.

But people will still buy them anyway...then start a bitch thread when their game falls apart...

Wow. Doesn’t fly down here (or Europe) because consumers are guaranteed a minimum warranty anyway, but that’s an interesting strategy from JJP. Doesn’t send a good message - they’ve basically given up trying.

Surely there’s some sort of consumer protection in the US if it’s faulty straight out of the box?

How it's possible? No minimum warranty defined in US?

It’s per State. In Cali this wouldn’t fly

JJPs foreign distributors will be taking all the fallout from this.

America does have decent laws, but fewer agencies to enforce them, hence the reliance on lawsuits. JJP's offer to buy back basically covers any issues and would forestall a suit, but screws their customers who just want a non-fucked playfield. This is assuming they follow through (which I figure they would in the face of a lawsuit). If they did not buy back, I believe they would be found liable for the playfield damage since they marked GNR as a collectable and peeling paint around posts is not normal wear and tear. Shooterlane damage, hole-edge chipping, dimples.. all of those can be argued as normal wear, but this post thing is something new and not acceptable.

I’m so happy Jason at Classic stepped up and bought me a playfield when JJP said nope!!!

I've been waiting 1yr and 3 months for an Iron Maiden playfield from Stern. Bought that game from Jason march 2020. Still waiting and have lost hope now that I will ever see it.

WWCE

Jason worked it out with Barry and bought one for me. It will take a while for them to make it up (this fall) but I am 100% confident he will come through as promised.

#237 1 year ago
Quoted from Zitt:

He goes from being the biggest shill to being pissed. Because he "thought" his experience was good, everyone else must be lying. He changes sides then can't even post a simple "Boy I was wrong, sorry" post, just flies to the other side. What a tool.

Probably waiting for this upcoming production run so they have stock to send from. We waited over a year for an ACDC replacement blank.

Just making sure this is not forgotten.

#240 11 months ago

We know. Never Mirco. Hopefully CPR starts making more titles

Love your work Sprudel!!

#242 11 months ago

What we really should do... is encourage the victims to post pictures of the crap he's selling.
Like repeatedly and often.

#243 11 months ago

I'm going to bump this until I get out of the hobby. As long as only one person decides to restore rather than to buy from Mirco, I'm satisfied.
Also anyone needing to buy should buy through a retailer and not directly, so there's leverage on this guy, if things are wrong.

He's giving a 9AM presentation at Expo this year...that would be a good time to ask him in person.

#245 11 months ago

I wish I could be there. Someone please do it and film!!!
Does the event have virtual participation?
