The chunk is on the left side by the leg is there in the pictures. It is the same machine. It does suck that the right side was up against the wall and that is where most of the cabinet damage was... The screw poke also sucks, but you can't expect sales guys to see every flaw. I think they are the same as the people who stand in the lot when you rent a car. If you don't see it they don't see it...
You paid for a working game. The seller owes you at least that. Have them schedule a repair at your location. Or tell them you will send the game back and you expect a full refund. You will still be out your shipping cost... The playfield does look good in the pictures... I would get some blue paint and touch up the cabinet scars and play the game. I know you wanted a nicer game. You look at the playfield every time you play. I would rather have a bashed up cabinet than a trashed playfield.
Sorry your entry into this hobby hasn't been the best.
