If you want to view paradise, advert your eyes from the slingshots....

Quoted from Psw757:

That doesn’t work on POTC, chipping in many many locations.
Let your game age a bit, there is no paradise!

This is true. My POTC has chipping in multiple spots.

WOZ has light wear around throne room VUK, but that has around 4,000 plays.
Hobbit- flawless with around 4,000 plays as well.

REPORT: JJP is going to announce their solution via podcast.

Which leaves one to ponder, how will we see Jack’s cartwheel punctuation after the “solution” is announced?

^Thanks knobshiner. I just Jersey Yacked all over my iPhone.

Quoted from Psw757:

Any idea when?

“In a week or so.” According to my super secret inside source... let’s call him...”ShallowEsophagus”

Quoted from HEAD_boss_HOG:

jjp and possibly stern will get sued soon i think
it will be a class action, and it may just bankrupt them (JJP)
as an attorney, i am thinking that its just a matter of time before some lawyer sniffs this out and smells the money, then its just a matter of time and determining how much its worth to him to represent the class.
it bums me out to think that will happen, but i really think it will.

Sniff sniff. Looks like you cracked the case, Matlock.

Quoted from RichieWrench:

Hey...My podcast is done and I think public now for those that want to hear it.

How can I find this?

#1149 1 year ago

Oh man. Can’t listen to that little girl without jamming ice picks into my ears.

#1215 1 year ago
Quoted from Mike_J:

Do you sell new arcade games?

Yeah, don’t buy one. He will tell you go go f*ck a mole hill when the paint starts chipping off in a week.

Quoted from drfrightner:

I love JJP and think they do an amazing job. I'll tell you what, I'm going to reach out to them, and see if I can get some answers. I'm going to do it the old fashion way, not thru pinside but talking to the owners. I will get back to you and let you and everyone else know exactly what I find out. I promise you that.
Lastly, I'll say again I have their games and they're all fine. All of my Stern games are fine. My Wonka is running 110% My Pirates has been brutalized and its going strong. All of my Stern games are firing on all cylinders with no issues. On a side note none of this matters because according to AOC the world is ending anyway in 12 years. LOL
But other than that my pinball games are all great and I promise to tell you what I hear.

Must be nice to be so well connected. Let us know what that carthwheeling fruit loop has to say. Those of us who have sent him $50,000 in the last few years would love to hear from him.

Hell, I couldn’t even get an employee to return my call over my Gobstopper mech descending into the playfield every full rotation. Thank God I know the King of Pinball repair and he tore it apart, greased it, and reassembled for me. Something any new $9500 machine should require I guess.

#1872 1 year ago

Maybe Jack can come install the unpopulated playfield he’s planning to send me for my clear and paint chipping issues.

Last JJP machine for me. I’ll buy 2 Stern Pros instead. At least I know Stern will correct any issues that could arise.

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

Am I reading this right? Are you confirming something here?

I’m not confirming anything. I was told to “hang tight” by a distributor and he alluded to this being Jack’s “fix.” Assuming you are missing clear and paint. Just the clear and you’re pretty much on your own.
