I just joined the club with a super minty LE as well! I've read the gold can wear off the lockdown bar pretty easily. What's the best way to care for the shiny stuff and prevent this? Did they resolve the flipper weakness problems with the LE? I've had a few lengthy games (nothing crazy) but haven't noticed them deteriorating. Is there a page that shows the difference between SCAN / HIRES etc. for the color DMD? I have it on HIRES right now.
