Quoted from Lermods:

I was just at the boardwalk in Rehobeth DE...here's the Beatles clear with a similar issue. I'd guess the game has been there a while, but likely not played much. A neoprene washer would take care of it.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Does a soft neoprene washer actually prevent more damage or does it just cover it up?

Neoprene seems way to soft to do any good. But, maybe it does work?

Those aren't neoprene. Those are pet-g.

Neoprene is a soft rubber that they make wetsuits out of. That's why I was asking if they really work, because I wouldn't think they'd be hard enough to support a post.

I can see pet-g working though.

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.

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

Now with the code? Is your Ghostbusters unplayable? Do you possess an unplayable box of lights to show the judge? Or a trashed playfield where you don't need to zoom in 10x to point out the flaw?

You failed to answer any of my questions. If you don't care about damage out of the box and unfulfilled promises just say so and move on; No need to tell people how to feel and talk down to us.

Quoted from jimwe5t:

<snip>The real reason it was stopped is because of all the issues it had, not just PF. <snip>

Have you confirmed this as fact or are you trolling/talking out your ass again?

We get it, you hate JJP for whatever reason. But, please stop stating wild speculation as facts.

Quoted from flynnibus:

My personal buying preferences are immaterial to the subject... which was pinball machines are not hands off trophies without flaws. They wear, they have flaws, they break, we fix them, we keep on living. If you can’t accept that... you’re in the wrong hobby.

I don't think anyone disagrees with you that they wear and break and all that. What we disagree with is that broken from the factory is acceptable. To be clear: it is not!

Quoted from zaphX:

Not unreasonable.
First people complained nothing was being done, and that they should get a playfield at cost. That happened.
Then people complained they should get them free without paying anything. That happened.
Now people complain they should be populated playfields.
Where does this end?
From where I sit, all I see are pinside people being entitled and unreasonable while JJP is doing what they can to make people happy.

Where it should end is just like any other defective product: you take it back to the place you bought it and exchange it for a new one that is not defective.

The "entitled and unreasonable" are, in my opinion, being very reasonable asking for only a fully populated playfield to swap out instead of an entire machine.
