Reporting all negative posts now? Man, I remember high school.

And another one flies off the rails. Thanks for trying Panzer.

Quoted from ek77:

Yet will be the first to say keep it positive

It was your "after that only pin shows news" comment you added on the end. It may have been taken as a jab as you have made many in past JJP threads. I'm just tired of the same old people being rude in JJP threads. Criticism is one thing but trolling it another. I won't report you (wasn't able to as my cell signal was bad) but I will put you on ignore along with the other usual JJP bashers.

No, you're a good teacher Jim. Find something people enjoy, then swoop in and take a stinking shit on it. Then sit back and watch the fun? Good job. Thanks for participating.

Actually I like both of those games. And that doesn't explain why you're here. Why come into this thread start trolling? (And yes, that start was trolling). Why are you keeping up the rancor of a perceived fight ages ago? Do you have a need to keep arguing about manufacturers? What is your deal Jim? Why bother going into a JJP thread? I doubt it's your interest in the topic. It's about what you can stir up here. Good job, you derailed it within a page. All of Pinside is better with what you have added here. Enjoy the smell.

Oh my ? I can roam where I please . I don't need to explain to anyone why a look at threads on Pinside . If I offend you so bad then please ignore me .

Let not make this out to more than it needs to be . I am not trying to control anyone or figure out why their life must suck. I post my thoughts, big deal .

Go back and read my post in this thread. I haven't really said anything ?

LMAO !

#65 4 years ago

This ignore function is awesome.

Can't wait till I get my hobbit!

#66 4 years ago

Maybe you should upgrade your collection and buy WOZ along with THLE!

Of course you don't NEED to explain anything. I was asking you questions to give you the opportunity to explain. I think it would be nice to understand the mindset you brought to this thread.

As for your suggestion of ignoring you, no. I don't have a single person on ignore here. If anyone has something to say, I'd like the opportunity to read it. Even if it's someone coming into a thread just to troll... But if you don't like my questions, feel free to ignore me.

#68 4 years ago

Guys, can we please get this thread back on topic?? The subject is 2015 Hobbit updates!

Oh....never mind.

Carry on.

#69 4 years ago

Why only a warning for an obvious troll as mc cune?

Kick does kids out please. Let us discuss the hobbit pin.

#70 4 years ago

No Woz for me. The music and sound drive me bonkers. Whoa Nellie is the same way. Sounds like Disney's toontown or something.

I think my BK will compliment it nicely, Thx.

If I had 16 machines life would be pretty good.

#73 4 years ago

What's the update?
I expected something big since a new thread was created.

#74 4 years ago

Does anyone know how many Day 1 orders were placed for TH? I was one of these, but I have no idea how close to the front of the line I might be for my THSE #825.

#75 4 years ago

Thumbs down for anyone talking about how they will ignore people, just do it and don't be a bitch about it.

#76 4 years ago

Good try Panzer. You posted a nice chronological order of Hobbit news, Thks. As to the other noise, it's somewhat entertaining and not mean spirited as well as expected. Hopefully there will be more TH news than noise.

#77 4 years ago

At one point, I believe the button on the apron was to be used to fire the windlance. Not sure if that's the case anymore (though I might be wrong). Does anyone know how it will function during the gameplay?

I'm gonna ignore people.

The Hobbit! (Still on topic!)

#79 4 years ago

Panzer,

Thanks for putting together this post. Your spot on that some of the other TH posts were getting bogged down by negativity and off topic information. I just bought my SE and I'm looking forward to putting in next to my LOTR. Love the theme and the improvements that the design team made look fantastic! Some things are worth waiting for.

The Hobbit! (Still on topic!)

Jeez, EK...it was a joke! I've never ignored anybody (and you and I have disagreed on lots in the past). I don't even ignore trolls...those idiots make me feel like Einstein.

Now, before I get booted from this thread, is anybody here going to JJP's open house to see THE HOBBIT on the assembly line?

I think Jack spoke about that in the Northwest thing. They had been told that Smaug was going to be killed with the windlance, which is why it was so prominent in the original design. Then when the saw the movie they said "whoops" because of the changes.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

I'm thinking about flying in for it. Are these usually in the day or evening?

#83 4 years ago

I really don't understand why some people can't learn to "shut the f up unless you have some actual Hobbit news to share."

Quoted from CaptainNavidad:

It's now the Ring Button, Captain. At NWPAS, you could use it to change skill shots before plunging the ball, charge it by making certain shots during gameplay, and hit it once charged to get "special powers" like extra multipliers, etc. Jack mentioned that the "fire the windlance" plan went out the window when they actually saw the third film.

I think he said they changed it to a ring button? One function of the ring button is to cycle through the skill shots according to the presentation.

Day. And bring one of those misting fan thingies...the factory gets really hot in the summer!

Kinda warm in August down here in Texas too! Daytime on a Saturday means 2 hotel nights because there are no flights late Saturday. I'll check out hotels and car rentals.

#88 4 years ago

If anyone makes it to the open house, as always, pics & vids are greatly appreciated! Especially if they're clear & don't give you motion sickness Hope everyone that celebrates has a great 4th of July weekend!

It would have been a good idea to create a new thread with new news. The problem is there is zero new news so the same stuff is happening in this thread. Nice try. You just jumped the gun

#90 4 years ago
Quoted from txstargazer3:

Last year ( 2014 ) it was on a Saturday, August 9th. Started around 9am, pizza at 1pm, etc. etc.

I believe they are shooting for August 29th this year. I'm sure more details will come out about it.

There's no reason for the same stuff to happen in this thread. There are people that have 0 interest in the game and just enjoy bothering others in JJP threads. The same type of behavior and personal attacks don't occur in the Kiss and America's Most Haunted threads. People can be respectful to one another in those threads. The same should happen here.

Quoted from txstargazer3:

Does anyone know how many Day 1 orders were placed for TH? I was one of these, but I have no idea how close to the front of the line I might be for my THSE #825.

I inquired at the beginning of 2014 as to my position in the queue. I was told by Jen that the first day they started taking orders was on 11/26/12. I ordered based on my invoice on 11/28/12 (though I think it was 11/27 when I placed the phone order as that is the date I joined the Google group). She wrote that she researched and that there were 175 people in front of me. Now what I don't know is if that's 175 machines or if some of those people are dealers with (shudder) dozens of machines.

I don't mind dealers having many machines on order ahead of me as long as they were required to maintain the same prepayment schedule for all machines that are to be produced in the early queue. Otherwise it's not really fair to the folks that did make all the on-time pre-payments.

Grown men talking about a hobbit pinball machine acting like kids. Yup, just another day on pinside happy 4th.

With WOZ, Jack always said, "first to pay, first to play" which turned out to be totally false. Lots of standard WOZ's were built way before the presold LE's, and we all know it was to bring in needed money. I see no reason why building TH won't be the same way.

Starting a JJP thread and asking for only positive comments is like telling a 2 year old not to touch something.

Ain't gonna happen.

#97 4 years ago

8/29 is the open house at JJP, correct?

That's less than two months away from Expo. They HAVE to have something for us to chew on by then, right?

This wait is driving me nuts. Not because I want to play TH, but because I want just a nugget of info about the Pat Lawlor machine! Something. ANYTHING! I'll settle for a screenshot of a screenshot of a whitewood at this point.

#98 4 years ago

I'm guessing Hobbit coming off line by the time open house is here. Pat's game will wait for expo nothing will be leaked before
