    Bump for added pictures.

    #3 1 year ago

    Good luck , I have the LE I like this model because it has the characters on the side cabinet. I just wish my pins weren't so crammed together so you can see the side art.

    Great game. GLWTS.

    #4 1 year ago

    Thanks I really like the game and art work. I wish I had more space to show art work and keep more pins.

    Weekend bump, couple of people interested but no commitment yet.

    Monday bump price drop.

    That more in-line of the price of what a hobbit should be. Crazy that there was/is one on here for 11k!

    was not long ago it was $7k or less pin. I think the sweet spot is $7500 these days.

    That’s because they were still in production and jjp kept turning out iterations of the game. Supply is fixed now and people realize how good of a game it is.

    nah these were selling for 7k up until very recently... as recently as last week... and they haven’t been available NiB for a long time. Not sure I’ve seen one sold for more than 8k...

    #12 1 year ago

    I won't sell my Hobbit LE. However I was aware there was nothing but Hobbit wanted ads in marketplace until recently. Delt31 had his listed for $10,800 and it sold. He also said he had a list of potential buyers if the sale didn't go though. I saw another listed over 9k pending sale as well.

    Even now 8 ads wanting Hobbit 4 ads selling. No doubt the game is in demand.

    Cheers.

    Where are all of these 7k hobbits you say were selling as recently as last week? I'm not seeing them.

    Quite a few have managed to sell for more than 8k within the past two months.

    See the link of the poster above, there are a bunch of them.

    Yep, definitely in demand. Such a slow playing pin but great theme. This will sell eventually as well

    2 or 3 sold in April for $7k or less

    This was after they stopped producing them. They would sit in market for months at $7k. The market is just absurdly insane at the moment.

    11 current ads for the Hobbit, 7 wanted, 4 for sale...not surprising price is rising on the game. That said, prices for the game are all over the map ranging from 7 up to almost 11k.

    It’s hilarious when people ask where all the pins are at. Most of the time all you have to do is look at the archives.

    On the other hand I think that question is more of a non confrontational way of telling someone they are wrong.

    Everything is rising, even turds. I do like a hobbit pin though!

    I suppose the 7 want ads don’t want to pay the high price sale ads.

    I don’t know why nicoy3k down voted me but ok.

    #24 1 year ago

    Thank God this is pending and congrats on sale.
    Been tempted for days but no time.
    There was no way I was going to ask you to hold till I got to CO.

    Man so many people missed out on Hobbit last year. It took me MONTHS to sell a really nice HUO LE for 5900!! Where was all the interest then? What changed? Everyone “hates” hobbit and they sat at 6000-6500 for eons.

    Inflation, increased demand/popularity from pandemic and more newbies in hobby that see $8600 as a bargain for a JJP when G&R LE NIB is $10,500.

    people downvote stuff for various reasons like prices these are going for. I don’t take it personal but a lot of people do. I guess I never realized they were negative to folks until recently

    Nothing personal, don’t like your price. Congrats on the sale

    Man. Sold my HUO Black Arrow for $6500 and I was happy to see it go. Crazy times we live in now, congrats on the sale and it boggles my tiny brain that Dialed In hasn’t appreciated in value yet!

    Yeah, I agree. Dialed in is a much better playing pin but I guess the theme is the game changer
