..just need a lie down now after spending that on 5 panels :lol:
Might've got off lightly. rancor mentioned stool prices going up and had to cancel his group buy. Possibly a price rise on all Taito products?

The stools are apparently manufactured in China and COVID-19 is hitting the factory hard. Everything else they seem to have in stock (for now, I guess).

All booked ;) The UPS man will be here in a few hours. Everyone should receive their boxes on Monday (Tuesday at the latest for non UK boys).

Did you all get tracking number notifications to the email address you gave me?

Just to confirm, have you removed the protective film/layer?

Of course ! I believed it was the protective film/layer but no :(
350 euros for that :( i’m sure a repro panel is better :(
My original 1p panel used is in better condition :wtf:

Probably not the consolation you want to hear, but the stick washer/cover will hide that?

I think that only the old stock L panels might have had that film applied (they didn't reprint those like the F and D).

must admit I was really disappointed by the F panels, totally different colour and the original has a silver background whilst the new ones are just white.

No protective film over the top either, the face to face packed them so they are scratched too :palm:

Shame on you Taito!!

No reflection on Zak here by the way he did a sterling job of sorting this and the IOs, plus he's a proper top guy :awe: it's completely Taito that are at fault. :wtf:

Interesting, so the original 1 player Diamond panel also had the silver effect? :think:

I checked the US group order thread on AP forum, they got exactly the same as us.

From what I can tell, only the L panels were new old stock. The F and D are all reprints.

When they reprinted the E2 panels some years back, they were missing the silver print too (became white).

Not sure what changes with their printing process.
