Quoted from NorCalRealtor:
That wound be absurd. You guys are making a mountain out of a mole hill with this clear coat stuff. It's embarrassing.
I'm not a litigious person by nature. But, how much it too much? How long is too long (i.e Ghostbusters code)?
As it pertains to Stern and GB code. They have been dangling a carrot for a long time (3+ years). Will we actually see the code? I hope so. But, how long is too long? I am very close to having a lawyer friend write a letter as I believe the lack of finished code decreases the value of the game (loss of money).
As it pertains to the physical portions of a game, what do you think is acceptable? Are you OK with a few chunks of clear coat missing from your brand new game? If so, then I propose that you are an outlier. If you do mind and neither the distributor nor manufacturer resolve the issue for you, what do you do? Suck it up? Complain on <insert favorite pinball forum>? Stop buying NIB pins? Contact your consumer protection agency? Lawyer up?
I sure hope the people affected are taken care of by the "supplier" of the game.
