I heard JJP is sending free Wonka bars for playfield issues.
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.
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.
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$t
Quoted from Coz:
The only way this playfield situation truly gets resolved is by customers not buying another nib pin until things get fixed. It’s a big risk to buy one of the current nib pins from stern or JJP. You could get a perfect playfield or you can have issues- I don’t want to take that risk-
Agreed. Just common sense. I am buying a super Chexx Pro instead.
Quoted from rs812:
FYI Reported nearly three weeks ago and still no response. If it doesn’t affect you and/or doesn’t bother you, why are you here? Punch back into work at JJP and carry on.
JJP will not make it right. Too long already. Why people continue to buy from them has me puzzled. Epic customer support failure.
Jack ain’t gonna do jack sh$t.
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.
