I recently purchased a NiB TMNT from a distributer.
This is my first ever pinball machine.
I'm trying to control my exciement and concern here so please go easy one me.
The top of the box was super dirty like it had been sitting in a warehouse for a while. I vaccumed up the dirt/dust and moved on. Box was generally in good shape, but maybe a little soft like it had been exposed to humidity. (I'm from Florida and this reminded me of cardboard that was left in our garage).
I moved on thinking this was probably just me being paranoid.
Once I got the game open and out of the box i was able to see that this game was built in October 2020 - so it's been sitting in the box for almost a year now.
The balls are so rusty that I wouldn't dare play with them and this obviously sucks because I was super excited to play. The nuts/threads in the backbox were also rusty.
Also the coin box has no pin and was shoved up and into the underside of the playfield...
Just for extra paranoia I'm unsure if the print quality of the playfield is on par or not with expectation.
If anyone has experience with these sorts of concerns I would love to hear your feedback.
