Our first product, officially released today is “The Hobbit” Elite Pinball Topper.

"The Hobbit" Elite Pinball Topper is an immersive experience that integrates movie scenes, photos, mode rules, and objectives from the playfields mini monitor into our 3D designed topper. It brings "The Hobbit" pinball machine to life. This topper is limited to only 50 units. Once all units have been sold, this item will no longer be available or produced again in the future. The topper is installed utilizing factory mounting holes in about 25 minutes. Currently, we have 10 toppers boxed up and ready to be shipped. We are producing 4 -8 units per week and plan to have all 50 orders fulfilled and delivered before Jan 31st 2021.

To reserve 1 of the 50 toppers available and be placed on “The List”, simply send me a private message, shoot us an email, or give us a call at 224-633-3381. The first 10 orders will receive their toppers next week as they are in box and ready to ship.

Excited for all that you have planned Elite! I LOVE my Elite Hobbit Topper. This is what a pinball topper is all about! Can't wait to get your next one!

Nice looking topper , so much better than the overpriced Stern toppers

Thank you! Our first of many!

Curious as to what the Indiana Jones topper(s) will look like .... Looking forward and good luck with your new venture.
Perhaps a video of the toppers working on your site would be cool as well

#7 17 days ago

Looks amazing love it. Please consider LOTR next. Curious, is the video content preloaded or does the buyer provide that? Look forward to seeing the list progress.

#8 17 days ago

Great work!

#9 17 days ago

Keep up the great work! I feel like these are about $3k under-priced compared to a Stern Topper though. Too much value for $750

#10 17 days ago

Looks awesome and priced great compared to what you get from Stern, but good heavens how do you watch 2 tvs and play pinball all at the same time?

The Hobbit one in the video is showing the same thing that is running on the small screen on the playfield.

LTG : )

#12 17 days ago

Would love something like this to replace the plexi topper on POTC LE

#13 17 days ago

Looks Stunning!!
Does it have an extra HDMI input?
You know, just in case I want to have all the movies play in a attract mod.

#16 17 days ago

Thank you so much for all the great feedback! To those that have reached out to us, we are working as fast as we can to secure your spot and all the orders we are receiving. We plan to work as long as it takes tonight to secure all your orders this evening. Thanks for your patience.

The video content is shared with the mini playfield. As far as LOTR goes, there is an extra HDMI input that is on the monitor. While we don't offer this, you may be able to mount this topper to your LOTR and then use a Pi3 or something to play movie scenes

#18 17 days ago

very nice i am sure these 50 will sell shortly.

Appreciate the feedback on video forgot that mini display had that much content. As for LOTR....... I was actually imagining you making a Shire type animated door or something creative like this. Never liked any of the still statue toppers for that game. Great work!

Hey all, I wanted to give a quick update. We have 22 of the 50 toppers spoken for in the first 24 hours. If your interested, let us know. Shoot me a PM and I can get a spot secured for you. I hope to post a list of the pinside names and their specific spot in line soon.

It's the same video that streams inside the game book. This topper is basically just a larger book already inside the game.

Oops. Answered already. Sorry.

This is legit and price and packaging is great

Thank you!

#26 16 days ago

So it's just splitting the video feed from the mini book screen and showing it on the topper...huh.

Is that the plan with future titles too? Just use games that have LCD screen and simultaneously display those assets as a topper?

Looks great!

Not always, our next game is Indiana Jones and as you know, there are no assets or lcd screens to tap into. We are more than a one trick pony!

Is the whole frame 3-D printed or only the base where it mounts to the cabinet?

Cool idea. Looking forward to the IJ topper.

#41 9 days ago

Deliver thoughtful and innovative toppers at a price that is in the realm of reasonableness and you guys will move a lot of product. I’m also interested to see how you work around the license challenges.
