I assume not mods will be announced or hinted until a few machines have shipped, correct?

I wonder how many LEs were converted to SEs. I really like the dragon theme so I did the switch even though the golden Smaug head on the playfield looked hideous. Very happy to hear they may have redesigned it to be more tasteful.

Quoted from txstargazer3:

Sorry for the cross-post, but here you go. My Smaug with RAD-cals arrived today.

That's what I have on order! Please share more pics! Many, many more!

Keeping your pre-order or not is a personal decision and whatever anyone decides is the right choice for them! I must say, I'm incredibly excited about TH. I also have the SE with RAD-cals on order and hope to get it by this summer. This is only my third pin, so I'm still a noob by any measure. I love the LOTR theme even if it's modeled after the much weaker Hobbit trilogy. Part of my excitement is the hope that JJP will polish TH as much as they did WOZ, which may or may not be the case. The latter was their very first product and they had a lot on the line to establish their brand, as I understand it. Another thing I'm salivating over is the number of aftermarket mods! I can't wait all the goodies that the community will create to make this another showpiece pin!

Finally saw a machine in person and got to play it. I think I'm in love! Playfield is gorgeous and I my head was reeling from the many shots and modes. The sound is amazing. So much better than any pin I've played before. And finally the screen and the animation on it is freaking awesome! I can't wait to get my machine this summer.

Now, the one thing I did notice was what others also reported: the translite above the screen really seems washed out. Either the light source behind it is too strong or not enough color was applied. Either way, this is something that hopefully JJP or the community will come up with a fix for.
