    It will not replace the Sterns and JJP or others yet but they are fast learners

    Yes, but first you need something to copy/learn from. I don't see a single pinball in china:

    Granted that list isn't always accurate, what are the odds there are many (if any) pinballs in china? It's a communist country, not exactly time for leisure in most places. That thing looks cobbled together from photos or videos someone saw online. "Oh yes, so we make cabinet, and we put some pegs up here, and then flipper down here, and maybe pegs make score go up. Then we put some sort of coin mechanism on front, this one from laundromat. This scoring display, this from counter at factory, this be good to make score".

    Not saying it's not a nice try, but who knows if they'll ever make anything fun? Or even looks good? That gold trim is killing me, and look at the back box? It looks like someone found some scrap wood in the dumpter and cut it with a handsaw.

    Reminds me of the china man that built a submarine for $31k in his basment:
