Quoted from vireland:

It's on the recent Mircos direct PFs, too. Someone showed pics of one with the same issue in another thread.

Have that link handy? I am curious to check it out (I bought a WH20 PF from Mirco last month, looks fantastic but curious to check out any issues others may be having)

Quoted from vireland:

Unfortunately, I don't remember which playfield it was (it was in a thread dedicated to that machine, I think), except that it was a "classic" re-run. Someone posted pics of it within the last couple weeks.

No worries. I am reading the one from Harry Houdini now. I hope you guys are made hole in one way shape or form on this PF issue. I backed out of my wonka pre-order earlier for other reasons, but i did wonder if the clear issues would continue past POTC.

I remember the days when this thread was about clear/chipping around the sling posts. lol.

1 week later

Quoted from donkadelic:

And what about the 1k+ it takes to populate said playfield?

It's a lot of work/labor to do it yourself but certainly doable for many on this forum. In a perfect world you shouldn't have to of course (and someone would just show up to swap your machine with a new one) but due to low margins, freight and distance, that is just not going to happen. Sending out new PF's for free to those with chipping is JJP's best way to save face (albeit a bit late and poorly executed to start... better late than never though).

I just hope they get all this figured out before toy story

Gonna drop out of this thread soon.
Glad for those that have found a resolution they are happy with.
I’ve bookmarked enough to know what to look for and what solutions have been tried and proposed.
Hung around hoping to hear something more definitive about JJP/Stern resolving the underlying issue. But seems it will simply be mileage may vary and buyer beware for all NiB except Spooky from here on out.
I say except Spooky because they came in here. Admitted they had an issue and claimed it’s been resolved going forward.
Last question. Did we determine if any CGC remake tables have had any reports of pooling?

Just put maybe 5 or 6 people on ignore and suddenly this thread will be much easier to read.
