I heard JJP is sending free Wonka bars for playfield issues.

Now I bet others are chipping but haven’t realized yet.

For 12.5k the playfield should be the best in the business.

JJP Have any response to this yet?

#388 1 year ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

I haven't seen anyone getting a new populated PF or free PF for GOTG, Beatles, etc? If I have missed them replacing all these problem PFs, please link it to us? I think the GB playfield is the only place I saw this happen, but haven't seen anything on the other titles of PF replacement.

Stern replaced my AC/DC premium vault playfield in 2018. It had a pinky fingernail length crack in clear near removable lower playfield window.

Jurassic Park pros are already chipping. Someone posted pics in other playfield thread about issues.

Quoted from Rascal_H:

I’ve got this new playfield for sale if anyone needs a replacement.[quoted image]

All fun and games until it’s your game that’s falling apart.

Quoted from Psw757:

Strange thing, why is it that ripples on the JJP machines pretty much are guaranteed to chip and peel like an onion in time but on the Stern games ripples/bunching it doesn’t seem to chip?
Or I should say the chipping percentage seems to be much lower.

From what I’ve seen and researched. Yes.

JJP is a joke. Shame on them.

#1329 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

But this letter is the same wording that Stern began using in their manuals after Ghostbusters ghosting.
Guaranteed the next edition of the manual will also mention pooling. We’re already hearing distributors talking the same when questioned about the pooling.

Stern did me right with a whole playfield swap for AC/DC premium vault and it only took 4 months. JJP ain’t gonna do JACK sh$t

#1385 1 year ago
Quoted from Coz:

The only way this playfield situation truly gets resolved is by customers not buying another nib pin until things get fixed. It’s a big risk to buy one of the current nib pins from stern or JJP. You could get a perfect playfield or you can have issues- I don’t want to take that risk-

Agreed. Just common sense. I am buying a super Chexx Pro instead.

Quoted from drfrightner:

FYI GUYS... Jack did a podcast YESTERDAY and he talked about this issue. Go here and take a listen:
So go here and take a list and see if this answers anyone's questions.

Talk is cheap.

I'm still chuckling about

Quoted from o-din:

I'm glad to see Jack's speech has put everybody's mind at ease on this matter.

I will sleep good tonight.

JJP has ruined my life.

#1839 1 year ago
Quoted from rs812:

FYI Reported nearly three weeks ago and still no response. If it doesn’t affect you and/or doesn’t bother you, why are you here? Punch back into work at JJP and carry on.

JJP will not make it right. Too long already. Why people continue to buy from them has me puzzled. Epic customer support failure.

#1842 1 year ago
Quoted from DerGoetz:

Check out the POTC playfield thread.
We have an LE owner there with an monster size chip gone. Jack himself supposedly denied him, case closed.

Holy crap.

#1891 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

I get it. I’ve owned my Woz from day one pf issues and all
And I’ll be getting a POTC as well
I think it hit code red status now. Jack better get the pf situation worked out fast
There aren’t enough guys like me that will roll the dice in the future

Jack ain’t gonna do jack sh$t.

#1893 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

T - shirt for the upcoming show.

Well come on all he’s offered is a unpopulated 550 dollar replacement playfield. Lame.

#1906 1 year ago
Quoted from DougPiranha:

How are you affected? Planning on buying a JJP game?

I was going to buy GNR.

#1978 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

who-dey stop making so much sense! Haha
People complain he doesn't own or never has owned a JJP and therefore shouldn't talk...take it from me then.
I own two jjp's, owned DI and POTC and if they didn't completely drop the ball on Wonka, I would have owned that too.
Bottom line, although I really do appreciate Jack calling people there is absolutely NO f'n way JJP is doing this until we the Pinball community threw it in their face for countless days. Don't believe me? Look at Wonka..... They didn't do shit. Literally just produced the same BS pfs and guess what they did for the potc owners.... Nothing
Now we're all calling them out and they finally starting doing something.
Ok good to see but for the guys kissing their ass bc Jack got on the phone to call people? It's called jjp is scared shitless and rightfully so and it's people like who-dey who continue to call this BS out that should be thanked for this reaction.
Unfortunately too much of the "industry" wants us to continue buying NIB. Well F that.
Pinball people - continue uniting by not buying anything until these companies step it up and fix this and remember the shills that told you to do otherwise.

To hell with nib for a really long time. My faith is gone. Whodey is always right.
