Quoted from Rarehero:
Why do I keep replying to these threads….while I personally don't care about the mechs, this is Rick's mess….I'll let him deal with it….but seriously, if you guys are going to endlessly cry about this - PLEASE - call whoever you bought it from and demand a refund. Just get out and be done with it. You just won't be happy with this game.
You keep saying this, but it is missing the point.
Why is it wrong to voice concerns over the missing coin mechs, whether it means you actually want a refund or not or even if you haven't even purchased the pin? It's like the WoZ threads where owners say you can't have an opinion on WoZ or JJP if you haven't bought the pin.
The fact is, this is an issue to many people, even if it isn't an issue to you. And even if you don't care because you never plan on putting a coin through the slot anyway, there are still reasons to have at least some concern.
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to sell an $8k coin operated pinball machine without the ability to accept coins out of the box. Is this indicative of "cheapening out"? Why did it take them so long to figure out that the coin mechs weren't going to be included? Too difficult to implement? Why tell buyers about this after the refund period had expired?
If coin mechs aren't included, why include a coin box? Seems pretty easy to justify not including a coin box if you aren't going to include coin mechs. Etc.
Again, these are just concerns. Whether they rise to the level of "I want my money back" is doubtful for most, I would think. But that doesn't mean that questions and concerns about this issue shouldn't be discussed.
Edit: I missed Borygard's post quoted by Pintucky below. He said it more succinctly.
