10278 baseplate - quality control issues?
As I started building my newly-purchased 10278, I was switching out the dark grey baseplate for a green one, and as I held up the grey one, I thought, "WOAH... Look at the inconsistencies with the 'anti-studs' on the back side!" While the middle of the baseplate had anti-studs the same size of what you typically see, the edges had much smaller-sized holes. When I held up the baseplate to the light, you could see, in a "T" shape, where more light was coming through/plastic material was thinner in the middle and the opposite was going on away from the "T."
The top/playing surface of the baseplate was fine, so no playability issues there, but I was taken aback by the underside. I had never seen that before.
This would give credence to the whole new-versus-old road plate system, if these issues are becoming an issue for TLG in their current road baseplates (I haven't bought a road plate since the 632X series).
Has anyone else noticed this in their baseplate?
