Sure is nice that for some of you out there your machines are all good. I'm happy for you. It certainly is a real issue though...I was at a dealer looking at a Wonka and there was pooling on four sling posts and another post off to the left side. None of them had cracked yet, but that's only due to the fact that it wasn't played all that much. Also the dealer was putting down washers over the pooling in hopes to flatten them out. The thing that annoys me is the radio silence from both Stern and JJP. At this point they at least need to make a statement and let their customers know that they are addressing the problem and will take care of it period. If they don't I'm sure they will survive, but will take a huge hit to the old reputation. I have a RR woz and Hobbit that have zero issues. Also, my Maiden is pool free as well. That doesn't mean anything though as I've seen it up close and personal. It takes years to build trust and a good reputation, but only a few bad days to destroy it. Their silence on this matter is not helping.

Quoted from o-din:

The way I see it is if anybody that has read any of these threads or knows about these issues from either company and buys another new game and ends up with the same issues, he or she has nothing to complain about and the only person at fault is him or herself.

True statement. Although I’m sure some will not be deterred

Wow! That is soooo wrong...A tidal wave of clear. Jeez! Clearly a manufacturing issue that needs to be addressed in a big way. I truly hope they make you whole on this issue. Just out of curiosity..Have you spoken with Jack or anyone at JJP yet? I see you have a case #
