Same issue for mine that I took delivery of last week. I had to trim the death star bit on the back side, it was hitting, so i trimmed a bit with the exacto. Then for me, it was actually the mechanism by the coil, i loosened the 2 set screws on the shafts, and the death star close up just fine, so i had to attach things and realign and it works perfect now. I had posted a pic in the LE Issues/problems thread.
I also had to adjust the mystery hole, haha, never gets old... now i'm hitting left flipper 99% of the time instead of STDM. My ball gate on the right outlane was too tight and wouldn't move either, so just loosened that and the gate works great now.
All in all, relatively minor issues overall.
Really enjoying the game, first game i've bought without playing, but it's been a blast so far. Sold my AFMr and this was a very good replacement and I think a better game.
