Yeah mine had some melted filament on the nozzle as well I'm guess from where they did a test print before shipping.

It all functions fine I just printed the lulzbot key chain bed stayed at a steady 85 from the gcode on the SD so I dunno

I'm very sorry to see this. I would encourage you to return that printer to Amazon.

From everything we can see in the photos this unit is not the way we send printer out from the assembly floor. It has most likely used previously and may have other components damaged. Amazon has a 30 day return policy.

That's my conclusion, too. My best guess would be that the original purchaser broke the glass, then removed the heater and PEI and reused them on new glass (with damaged adhesive, and rubber torn from the bed's fiberglass mat), then returned it to Amazon.

Could you have clicked on a "warehouse deal" at Amazon? Those are RETURNS which Amazon repacks and resells. Aside from a cursory look at the box and contents, they basically take the word of the customer who returned it as to functional condition. Warehouse deals are "sold and shipped by" Amazon, but they were in the hands of another buyer first - and sometimes are not functional, even though the party returning them told Amazon it was perfect.

If it wasn't a "warehouse deal", then somehow Amazon accepted it back thinking it was "unopened / never used" and returned it to stock, where it was subsequently used to fill your order.

In any case, report the problem to Amazon and SEND IT BACK. The heater is damaged (rubber covering torn off), and there are air pockets visible in the adhesive. It looks horrible and I wouldn't trust it. If the glass was replaced, it might not even be the right type of glass.

This is not a stock, new machine from us. If you got it from Amazon, sold as new, return it and tell them it wasn't new! You shouldn't be shipped a box like that.

Send that puppy back and buy it direct from Lulzbot. If it looks like telling what else might be wrong.
