ALoha, Howdy, Ciao, Shalom, Bon-Jour, Buenos All,

Very excited to have my JP LE on order and to be a part of a group of 500.

Let's all join in and post up pics, mods and what your serial number will be on that cool Plaque. My friend is in the movie prop business and will be designing a incredible topper . I should have the design within 1-2 weeks. Hint-It will have a servo.

I have spoken to about 4 buyers already and hope to see them join this exclusive club.

I cant wait for Sept to arrive.

Have a great day.

Did you get the LE?

#13 1 year ago

Once we get it designed and then we will need the experts to tell us where it would need to get some small power to do the coolness you will see soon.

Someone said it can be trigger by doing a certain task/ shot etc etc and that will activate the surprise.

The poll so far is tied with 14 total votes for toppers and jeep.

I asked my buddy to work on a authentic Jeep after the topper of all toppers...lol

#22 1 year ago
Quoted from zucot:

The poll is missing the Amber shooter rod.

That's already available .

I bet someone will make a different one with maybe lights inside the amber versus on the plate...who knows.

Did you order a LE?

#24 1 year ago
Quoted from MikeHogue:

I'm in the club!
I was thinking about getting another DE Jurassic Park as I missed it. So excited about this new game!
In for a new Jeep and the Topper. Couldn't decide on the vote.

Welcome Mike.

This is gong to be a fun ride.

#25 1 year ago

Topper is pulling ahead.

12 now and Jeep 8.

Update on Topper, we will offer 2 flavors. Price point , servos, etc etc.

Any guesses bring it on...haha.

#39 1 year ago

ALoha All,

We Are Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you guys miss me??

I see some more LE owners in our group. Congrats to All.

I am super busy tweaking my first NIB LUCI and by the time I am done JP LE should be here. I will hang my Translite tomorrow.

I got something in the mail today. Thanks Stern

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Often the club threads go pro and then prem/LE as separate threads. That keeps them focused more on dialing in their versions of the games and what not. That may not seem important now before the games have shipped but it’ll be helpful later.
If it were art alone distinguishing the models we would not let the threads be separate. With playfield features being separate we allow two club threads.

Thanks for opening my thread. We will be a popular fun bunch.

#41 1 year ago
Quoted from Blakester:

Going LE on this iconic theme

Congratulations!!!!!!

#42 1 year ago
Quoted from Flynnyfalcon:

LE deposit paid, and now the wait for shipping to Oz begins... Never owned a Stern (outside of my Classic Stern Quicksilver), Jurassic Park is the first to scream "buy me". Can't wait!!

Can my Uncle come over and see it?? He lives in Melbourne.

Congrats on the order.

Quoted from getadam:

I'm in on an LE and psyched, as is my 14-yo son. It's the one question he had for me from sleepaway camp - "Dad, did you get Jurassic Park pinball?"

Awesome news.

Congrats and welcome to the club.

#49 1 year ago
Quoted from BOBCADE:

In on an LE with my favorite backglass art, cab is a tie for me with premium because I like the LE jungle theme on both sides though the raptors are cool on the premium.

Welcome to the LE Club.

Congrats.

#50 1 year ago
Quoted from Peanuts:

As mentionned in the speculation thread, I'm in on a LE. It's also my favorite backglass from the trhree. It's a very neat one.
We also have the chance, on JP, to have different art on each side of the cabinet, for each edition. The art on JP is growing on me and I think that Johnny Crap made a strong entry in pinball art!

Great News.

Congrats.

#51 1 year ago
Quoted from libtech:

In for a prem! Art is my fave on that one!

Congrats on the Prem.

Welcome to the club.

The Jeep Mod is catching up to the topper.

I should have a concept design for the topper this week.

We will get that done and move onto the Jeep.

Quoted from Halfwasted:

I am in for a premium too. Best art, Trex ball eater and raptor pen.
Extra cash isnt so bad over the pro for me. I need to show off the Trex eating when people come over.

Welcome to the club.

Congrats on your PREM pre-order.

#62 1 year ago
Quoted from Digduglus:

Hello, im stoked got my invoice for a premium! This is kinda my first NIB pin... my first was monster bash special from cgc, but thats a remake of a 99 table, so this will be my first time doing code updates and all that. Cant wait for the amber shooter rod.

Sup DigDug,

My fav 1980's game . LOL.

Welcome to the coolest club ever....haha.

Yes sir bring on the shooter rod NOW!!....I will hang it on my wall until my JP arrives.

#64 1 year ago
Quoted from Sandeep:

Le order confirmed. The game has so many shots, toys. Look what Elwin did with maiden, I’m hearing people who’ve even played the premium it’s a better game overall experience then maiden which is top 10 game. Can’t wait till November for a premium, this is a worthy le!! Almost sold out too!!! Munsters lol

Another Canadian ...woohoo.

Raptors world champs and JP coming....how can you not order a JP. I love the name of your NBA arena.

Welcome to the Club.

Dont forget to vote.

#73 1 year ago
Quoted from Potatoloco:

Got a chance to play the pro and premium this week at Pinburgh. I have a Maiden LE and am in for a JP LE. Prem / LE is the way to go, it’s an amazing pin and is the superior pin to Maiden. I didn’t think it’d be possible to top it this soon, but Elwin has done just that.

Welcome to the Club.

LE is gonna rock.

Looks like topper is taking the lead on jeep in the poll.

#74 1 year ago
Quoted from adamross:

In for LE. Question is do I sell my precious DEJP??

Welcome to the club.

Once these LE's starting arriving we can start posting serial numbers together who owns number 1, 5 or 500. Be kinda fun.

How cool would it be if we had all 500 in the club.

My wife and I are travel agents, I see a JP cruise coming soon for the 250 USA owners.

#76 1 year ago
Quoted from Flynnyfalcon:

I’m in the same position, recently picked up my very first NIB, a MBRLE but yep, although all the extra CGC add ons are amazing, I didn’t get that absolute new pin feel. JP will definitely be that, cant wait.

Welcome FF,

Please make sure you guys all vote for which MOD goes first.

This is going to be a great club/room.

We will take alot of time and it will be unique not from a toy store.

Anyone in the room/club going to Chicago expo??

#84 1 year ago
Quoted from tacreno:

Where are you hearing November for premium? Distributor told me they would start shipping in mid September.

I think i saw a post somewhere that was in this order of release.

Pro- End of Aug

LE - End of Sept

Premium- End of Oct.

Let me go look around and try to find it.

#85 1 year ago

Poll is swaying more to the topper.

27 for the topper mod.

18 for the Jeep Mod.

How cool would it be if the shooter rod was included in the LE. Surprise us when we open the box.

Wishful thinking.

#90 1 year ago
Quoted from Jurassic2016:

Confirmed paid in full on an LE from Little Shop of Games here in Florida! My grail theme is finally a reality!

Quoted from hassellcastle:

We are now sold out of LE’s. Thank you to those that purchased one from us. Still happy to assist others that may be looking for a pro or a premium. PM me! Out of state buyers, no sales tax!
As for production schedule, let me clarify.
Initial first batch of Pro’s - 2 weeks! Mid August, if you don’t order ASAP you will be in the next batch after premium build. late sept/October delivery
Limited Editions - Estimated for late August delivery
Premiums - Mid/Late September
Sooner to order..sooner to get your game.

Where you at the TPF last year?

#110 1 year ago
Quoted from JOESCHALL:

I'm in for the premium. It turns out I won the July pinball.edu raffle, so I chose JP2 and am paying the difference to upgrade to the premium. Can't resist that moving T-rex . . .

Amazing....what a deal.

Welcome to the Club.

Was it hard to find one???

#124 1 year ago
Quoted from Coindropper:

I posted these in the other thread, but figured I would share here since I’m also in on an LE if anyone wants to print a color “free play” apron card. I just use a canon SELPHY photo printer to print mine. Turned out ok. Just have to cut them out. The printed area is the exact size 140x75mm. I also printed the instruction card from the original reveal that was posted a few weeks ago. (Example of what they look like cut out on my DP)
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Another Texan to the LE club. Woohoo.

I like the card with Free play removed as it's in my house.

Did you see the ones on the 2nd page of this thread. These are the ones I am using .

I might need one of your designs for summer and winter..haha

#129 1 year ago
Quoted from Breger1:

Switched from premium to LE! Couldn’t get over art...much more fitting on LE with the theme

Nice move.

#130 1 year ago

Bought two LE’s. One I will sell in 2022 nib.

Wow, you found 2?

Black background works for me best.

Nice job so far.

#134 1 year ago
Quoted from jdroc:

Yes - the text, particularly the red and yellow, is next to impossible to read without a headache - keep iterating!

3 Vodka's helped. LOL

#137 1 year ago
Quoted from Coindropper:

any better or is it worse?[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

1 and 2 much better.

3 and 4 just to busy for my eye.

#141 1 year ago
Quoted from VolunteerPin:

I might buy a HUO LE in 2022 for $7500...
Very rare nowadays for huge appreciation. Heck, look at GBLE. Quick sell out of LE’s and they have not appreciated at all. I’m guessing my GBLE would only be worth about $7500 give or take.

I cant wait that long...lol

#142 1 year ago
Quoted from tbutler6:

This right here, ordered the LE because i like it! 7500 for first 5 years or so maybe. Enjoying them is what its about. Play these things!

Gotta agree with you on that one.

#144 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Appreciate the work but I just can't take Showcard Gothic seriously as a font.

Is that what my eye is not liking??

#145 1 year ago

Hey Guys,

Is there a way in this forum where if someone posts in this thread I get a notice? On a few other sites I get a ping, email etc etc.

Just thinking ahead when its Topper and Jeep time.

#147 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

There are a few things. First off no offense meant on coindropper, just saying what I see
The red text is a no no and too small
Red outline is usually a no no.
It's very busy behinds the words so the outlined text is an issue. Think the background image may need a little blur on it?
If not the outlining needs...something. Maybe a drop shadow or more outline; I'm not sure.

Throw something up for us to see.

#151 1 year ago
Quoted from Tradesman:

In on a LE from day one! Game looks fantastic!

Welcome to the party, what took you so long?

Congrats on the LE.

#155 1 year ago
Quoted from Coindropper:

Yeah, I don’t usually deal with font except Bold, Italic, or Underline and whatever the standard is on excel... literally did these in PowerPoint hoping to get someone to make something that knows anything about design and messing around when my office was empty. Pictures are from google. I’ve learned, if you put out a turd, someone is going to get irritated enough to do something better oh, and I figured out my little photo printer and an app on my phone can print them the exact size for these. Anything is better than the yellow crap that comes with them now-a-days.

A++++ for effort bud.

#156 1 year ago
Quoted from Rockytop:

I ordered an LE today. This game looks like a great shooter.

Awesome news!!!!!!!! Congrats and welcome to the club/room.

Cant wait to start seeing our 0-250 serial numbers rolling in.

#157 1 year ago

We need a sub/group for all members with LE's from 0-500 with pic of serial numbers . That could take years.

Create a cool list from username- serial number and location.

Who has 001??

#159 1 year ago
Quoted from estrader:

If a distributor has an LE available please pm me.

Congrats on getting one ordered.

Welcome to the party.

#181 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

Got my LE deposit in a couple weeks ago. This is going to be my first machine ever! Of course I've already been scouring the interwebs for mods. I'm looking at first getting the amber shooter rod then I really want to replace that jeep (voted!). So many questions already! Is this a good forum to ask or should I post elsewhere? (This is also my first post ever so I don't want to break the rules! )

Congrats and welcome.

I was a newbie just a few weeks ago.

MY buddy is designing some mods so we will see them soon. All things mods lets rock it.

The amber rod with the other mod that lights up the square box will be a nice combo....I see it has 2 small leds but I want more. lol

#183 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

NOTED! About the best I could do is grab a photo of my original JP VHS tape. I watched that thing religiously.

VHS, wow. Now we are really going back. HAHA.

#185 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

Looking forward to seeing! I've enjoyed following what you've shared already.

Good point! I wonder if the LEDs really do the knob justice without the room completely dark.
I'll probably pick it up and see for myself. Any suggestions on who to buy it from? Seeing some conflicting listings. I swear yesterday it was
posted for $49 here at Pinball Pirate, now $139.99 . Little Shop of Games
has it for $79.

Now that is odd.

I am sure stern will have it on the site, if I see it I will for sure post it here. I drank the juice and became a insider...so far its been good. I got a cool little gift box mailed.

Looking for the LED shooter box to show you.

#186 1 year ago

Here you go. I bought a few items from him. Great guy.

#190 1 year ago
Quoted from BMore-Pinball:

I did the same, almost went for the LE but the window dressing was not worth it for me.
I always seem to like the premium artwork the least, but it's never a game changer.

Le purchased but need room !

Nice Job.

#192 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

Looks rad! So that could be installed in conjunction with the amber rod? I wonder if he makes it in yellow/amber. I take it the amber rod isn't even produced yet but I'd hate for that one other seller's price to skyrocket like the other so I might just pull the trigger now. This is going to be a long month... LOL

I am sure he has that color. If not he can easily add it. I am going to ask him .

Yeah that's half price....let me know when you get it, post up a picture.

Welcome to the room.

Please vote in the poll.

#217 1 year ago

Is the shooter rod available on a site now?

Here you go, I just looked closer and it states on back order. Give them a call and see if you can get some type of ETA.

The price is half another site.

#222 1 year ago
Quoted from JOESCHALL:

Ordered amber shooter rod from Little Shop of Games. The site says the rod is on backorder and is thin on details (e.g., it simply says "This “mosquito in amber” LIGHTS UP with an LED!"), but I ordered anyway. Total with shipping was $90.34.

Yeah they are buying it from Stern so as soon as they are ready to ship to them you will get one.

#224 1 year ago
Quoted from adamross:

Do the LEs come with this shooter rod?

I dont know, how cool would it be if they did that. 9k we should get a few more goodies.

Anyone going to the Chicago show?? Stern Factory tour should be really cool.

Quoted from timlah79:

In terms of a topper, in lieu of an official one yet and my personal obsession... This LEGO set is going to be my time sink as I wait for my LE to arrive. It may just work as a topper too! (I'm going to need room for it anyhow, so why not on the top of the JP?)

Wasn’t sure when I’d feel comfortable spending the money again so I went for the LE, I’m an avid fossil hunter so JP is a dream title for me. Voted!

That sounds awesome.

Maybe we can add a few fossils in the playfield....hmmm.

#244 1 year ago

When I ordered my LE , I looked around for a LE only room and didnt see one so I opened this one 18 days ago. Admin closed it for 4-5 days and then the other one opened 6 days later . It looks like its for all 3 models.

Admin then re-opened this one and added PREM and LE as one group. ( Makes Sense )

We have 5 pages of activity they have 4, its time to merge as they say on survivor. HAHA.

Exciting times ahead , cant wait for this to arrive.

Anyone got confirmation on shipping for the PREM yet??? LE should be shipping in September I hope.

#245 1 year ago

Anyone here a Stern Insider??

I will listen to the podcast , Keith Elwin discusses everything that went into his latest creation, Jurassic Park and more!

Quoted from cpr9999:

Question:
Assuming they are shipping Pros.
When will they start shipping LEs?
When will they start shipping Premiums?

Up above we posted some delivery dates.

LE's should be shipping Sept and cant wait another day...lol

I think pros are now and premiums in Oct or vice versa.

How life with you???

Any new mods?

#259 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

GREAT questions as I'm waiting on my LE.
My understanding is:
Pro's: Yes, shipping as I type this
LE's: Aug by EOM (first ones at least---but I don't know xxx/500 aka how many Stern's producing for the first run, maybe 1/2 of the 500. When you'll get yours is likely dependent on the timing of your deposit + that seller actually placing their order with Stern. I was promised that I made the 250/500 cut so I expect to receive my LE within the next couple weeks)
Premiums: Sept (at some point, I would guess as early as they can)
In all, what I'm saying is that it's: first Pro's, second LE's, third Premium's
Hope that helps. I wish I knew more.

I was told 250 for USA and the other 250 to the rest of the world. I bet Europe and Australia will buy up those 250 quickly.

This will be fun to compare when they hit our doors.

I have a feeling I am 101 of 500..lol

#263 1 year ago
Quoted from estrader:

Le’s shipping end of next week to Europe is my understanding.

Damn why no love for USA LE's.

#265 1 year ago

I had a dream that my PIN was coming today. DAMN!!.

Anyone in here already received your PREMIUM? They are starting to trickle in around the country.

Party at my place if you are near when the LE makes it debut.

I made my first newbie youtube video on my mods, I think it came out okay.

Have a awesome weekend.

Quoted from Ilushka85:

Anyone want my le ?

Why??

#280 1 year ago
Quoted from timlah79:

I'm new to this but have been looking at the other forum about those with first run Pros finding issues. But that doesn't mean mine or your LE/Premium is going to have the same. I'd like to think that the majority of Pros are just fine and we're only seeing the minority with issues post about it (naturally). Plus I'm sure Stern is well aware as we speak so I would assume they are already mediating the issue(s) in current production of the units about to go out the door. Also, if there are defects in playfield/build quality/anywhere on the machine upon receipt, isn't that covered under Stern's warranty aka they will replace any of it with a quick turnaround time? Am I crazy to be positive on this subject?

No I agree with that thought process.

I cant imagine making 1000's of units and not a small percentage has some issues and will quickly be resolved.

#289 1 year ago

I also called my dealer as I am meeting them in Chicago to discuss something unrelated. They had zero calls or complaints.

We are doing a Stern tour and I can ask the 2 main guys face to face , if it's even an issue by then.

I smell a shopping spree that weekend.

#293 1 year ago
Quoted from tbutler6:

If you want to grow the Premium/LE group maybe consider showing him these pics on your phone and mentioning it on your tour. Alot of us are paid but awaiting there actual response or a change of process. Would very much love to here what they say. Maybe consider telling him we know there are alot of playfield issues so he can’t be innocent if you were to simply ask a question about it.

Hopefully I can do a little video interview and ask him these questions. 100% will ask him when I am there. I plan on being with them for about 1 hour.

#298 1 year ago

I played the pro for the first time at the Minnesota State Fair. This machine had both the loose upper flipper post issue and pooling clear around several posts. Played amazingly though. I'm still in for an LE.

Quoted from CVeRiTy:

Hi everyone, I joined the LE club today and put my deposit down for the last LE my distributor had.
I'm not into toppers unless they are especially interesting, but I always pick up the best playfield mods.
I'm not too worried about the clearcoat issue. I stay away from SE / Pros hoping that any major problems have been found by the time LE / Premiums come out - so far that's worked for me.

Welcome to the club.

Nice buy on the LE.

We are working on a Topper of all toppers, just taking some time.

#320 1 year ago
Quoted from Banker:

Understand LEs ship next week .

Seems the good news is spreading. Distro's are contacting buyers. I have heard 3 so far.

#322 1 year ago
Quoted from Beez:

So I posted this in the other JP thread, but it really hit home today and wanted to pass along my thoughts ...
I’ve really been struggling with keeping or cancelling my LE ... with all the ups and downs on quality control it’s truly been a heavy weight to consider. At the end of the day, this “heavy weight” is absolutely 100% in the 1st world problems category... so with that I’m keeping my LE order - it’s pinball, its fun and if there’s a problem I’m sure they will fix it. With all the struggles in the world these day and the craziness other families face, pinball should not have a seat on the struggle bus. I’m blessed to be able to afford these amazing toys and will continue to treat them as such ... toys ... stop the stress and have some fun! ✔️

Awesome comments.

Towards the top, you'll notice a section titled "Game Features LE Only." That might provide clarity for why people have chosen to purchase a LE.

Thanks for posting the differences.

I called it a club , maybe need to change the title to Prem-LE buyers only.

#447 1 year ago
Quoted from estrader:

For me its worth the extra money. The powder coating (400), shaker (100), hd glass(200), art blades(100), upgraded speaker (100) and back glass (100) most of which I would do anyway(maybe not the back glass). Add in my time because I dont have to deal with any of this myself and its well over 1500 in savings. I know some numbers are maybe a little high while some are a little low.
Some people I understand its not worth it because they dont want the extras or like to do the install on their own.
That is what makes our country great is the different opinions and the fact we do have options.

I see you listed some of the items. Here is the complete list that did it for me to pay the extra $1500.

Production limited to 500 machines ✓
Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gary Stern ✓
Designer Autographed collectible featuring signature by game designer Keith Elwin ✓
Serialized number plate ✓
Limited Edition illuminated mirrored backglass with stunning and distinctive high definition hand-drawn art ✓
Limited Edition exclusive Midnight Battle theme full color high definition decal cabinet hand-drawn artwork ✓
Limited Edition exclusive inside art blades ✓
Upgraded high definition speaker system with 3-channel amplifier ✓
High definition anti-reflection pinball glass ✓
Shaker motor ✓
Metallic hunter green high gloss powder coated armor and legs

I am a geek I guess and like the exclusive items even if they are kinda silly.

Quoted from jonesjb:

Is it really a club meant for those who "purchased". The title of the thread just calls it a Prem/LE Club.... It doesn't indicate that you must own the pin; it could mean that you've played it, are a fan of it, have one in the bar next door that you play, are considering buying, etc.

can I change the room name once it's created?

Any suggestions, as I wanted it for buyers of the PREM and LE only. Tar and feather me for the mistake.

What mods are people getting?
Speaker lights a must! The barbisol can looks cool. Isn’t someone making a “more realistic” Trex?? (Available yet?) My LE will hopefully arrive before the wknd?

I bought the cracked egg, the trex, electric fence and all the signs from ulekstore. So far about 12 items.

Things I want once game arrives,

Raptor Look-out
Raptor pen
Amber Rod
Barbasol can
Shooter plate, undecided on the 2 choices that are for sale.
Lighting in back, trex's mouth, speaker grills.
Stickers.

Hope someone makes a helicopter mod that is not a $5 toy. lol

We haven't forgot the topper my other buddy is working on , he is finishing another big project and about to send us some pictures.

What about you????

#492 1 year ago
Quoted from Morhaus:

I can understand the possible need for 2 forums (pro vs. prem/le) because the rules will be different (see GOT, massively different), mods may be different, etc. But I think most are smart enough to skip over posts that aren't related to their game (or their desires, mods, etc.) just like we skip over the vast amount of trolls that don't belong on this site at all.
Skipping posts is better than monitoring 2 or more forums. So, I'd side with ONE forum....but I don't think votes matter.

I opened the thread/forum after I joined and saw the LUCI thread. It was only going to be the LE group and then it was shutdown for awhile and when admin re-opened it he added PREM to the title.

My thread was open a few days before the other thread and I asked cant we just combine them together and the answer was no.

I also bounce between both, no biggie.

Any one who has already received your machines, hows the sound? and would you replace the speakers? It mad a massive difference on my LUCI. The subwoofer is a winner with the amp.

Quoted from evh347:

My JPLE is scheduled for delivery Monday, 9/23 from 0800-1200.
Stern hasn't completed building the amber shooter rod accessories yet.
Was told that Stern started putting a thinner coat of clear coat on the playfields. They suspect that the clear coat was applied too thick and then not allowed to fully cure. Anyways, that's the answer I got.

Hi,

Stern is making the rod? Do you know what the price will be.

Congrats on the confirmation.

#505 1 year ago
Quoted from evh347:

There is a officially licensed JP amber shooter rod that some distributors are currently (or were) offering for $80. I bought one when I placed the order for my LE. It was designed by George Gomez, who also designed the GMC (Gomez Motor Company) truck.
Keith Elwin discussed the amber shooter rod accessory in this article:
https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/this-week-in-pinball-july-29th-2019/
I did a quick search, maybe this retailer still has some to sell?
https://pinballandmore.com/jurassic-park-limited-edition-pinball-machine/
ModFather is selling a version of the amber shooter rod for $99, but it does not appear to include the LED's or the light show integration that Keith Elwin mentioned in the TWIP article.

#507 1 year ago
Quoted from evh347:

No, I bought mine from Great American Pinball (GAP). I was told this morning that it would be shipping separately because Stern isn’t done making them. They’ll probably eventually be available off Stern’s accessory page as well, but I don’t know if Stern sells accessories direct or thru distributors.

Playfields are holding up well. no washers below the slingshot posts, no pooling. thinner clear definitely applied for this run, seems to have cured correctly as far as the 2 hours we've played the thing.
the pearl in the dark green armor is really nice in person.
confirm 101, 120, 121, and 122. don't feel bad, 1 came damaged as well, knicked the backbox artwork but really torn up box.
these things are manhandled at terminals, but credit given to stern, excellent packaging job every time.
