Okay, enough pointless bickering and arguing over meaningless "filler" posts made when folks were over-caffeinated this morning.
Let's get back to the game.
The pictures clearly show that they've used some technique to slightly cloud/opaque the inserts. You can still see the burst pattern in them, but it has a white haze. I assume that this is to allow them to reflect more of the LED light color, thus appearing as a more consistent color on the playfield when lit (solid round insert consistently colored). A perfectly clear insert would have a sharp point of colored light in it, and would also be fairly blinding to the player.
This is brilliant and mitigates the otherwise player-blinding nature of the bright flashing LED inserts (re: GoT)!
So, is this part of the PF painting process, the insert colors themselves (my guess), or are they maybe using a 90's Williams clearcoat formula that ends up fairly opaque vs. modern Sterns CC?
