Some people have asked if I am selling because I don't like the game. Hardly, I love the game and find it to be the most immersive game I've ever played, the game really pulls you in when you get it going. Like the movies, it's a journey to go through all the modes. I am selling this Smaug because an LE found its way to me so I have two Hobbits, yes two, an LE and a Smaug. My family likes the look of the LE and I like the look of the Smaug, but I don't care that much and would be perfectly happy with the LE. Only difference I can see is the cabinet artwork. I am somewhat motivated to sell the game as I do not want two in my house so reasonable offers will be considered, but I'm not giving the game away given the condition that it is in. I am posting some pics of the high traffic areas and you can see they show zero sign of wear, JJP makes a great game. No issues with drop targets, left wire form where ball hang ups can be common, ramps, kickouts or anything else. Game also comes with a trough light and an RGB backboard light.

Good seller and buyer, I have dealt with him a few times and have been more then pleased.

#4 68 days ago

Bump for the morning crowd...would consider trading for a woz, thats the only game, otherwise cash sale.

#5 68 days ago

Out of the frying pan, and into the fire bump. Best reasonable offer takes it.

#6 67 days ago

Good price on a smaug bump. GL

#8 66 days ago

more pics...two trades were offered and they were fair, but I'm looking for a cash deal right now, possible a WOZ trade. While I will ship this pin for a cash deal if anyone wants (at their expense and arrangement), I don't want to do trades that involve shipping.

I will include a set of pingraffix side decals.

#10 65 days ago

Hi

Do you have anymore of the hobbit side decals for sale ?

#11 64 days ago

yes, I have two new sets. The second set is pictured, rolled up. Pingraffix sells them for $88 shipped. Make me an offer if you want the second set.

#12 64 days ago

This pin plays great, and looks like it came right out of the box. if you are looking for a Hobbit Smaug you won't be disappointed. Lermods is a great seller, and takes tremendous care of his pins. I have one of his pins in my collection and it is perfect.

#13 63 days ago

Two is better than one bump! Not really, need to sell one, Smaug on the left LE on the right.

Includes color changing rgb backboard.

That's awesome -- I say hold out for next code update, maybe they'll incorporate networked play like NBA Fastbreak!

#15 63 days ago

That would be cool, right. But one has to go. I've already moved the game upstairs and it's now in my living room, soon I'll be divorced. Good bang for the buck here, buyer won't be disappointed.

#16 62 days ago

I'm going to drop the price just a little more, $7600, that's like $1400 off a new game, not including any shipping. Buyer won't be disappointed.

#17 62 days ago

I am surprised that this has not sold yet. Great game at a great price bump!

#18 62 days ago

Me too, I love the game, and think there is a lot of value in a hobbit or woz priced below 8k relative to what else is out there. If anyone is on the fence, come play it, no obligation. ALWAYS happy to meet other pinsiders, and you are also welcome to play any of the games in my collection, might even throw in a beer or two. If you take down a gc score on any of my games, it's yours .

#19 62 days ago

TH Smaug is the single best looking pin ever IMO. I'd buy this without hesitation if I didn't already have one.

#20 60 days ago

Friday bump...easy move out of my living room.

Prefer cash deal, but trade for a woz, maybe a st premium plus cash may be possible too.

Couldn't agree more. Great price on an incredible pin!

GLWTS!

#22 60 days ago

I agree as well. I'm not going to drop the price any further as I think its worth every penny at $7600 with a few nice lighting mods, especially given what else I see out there. More code is going to drop soon too making it even better. The game is stunning in terms of play and look, a work of art.

#23 58 days ago

Sunday morning bump. Have had quite a bit of interest, but still available,.including a trade for St premium plus cash, but shipping killed it. Another was for 7k cash. An offer came in last night to trade for a woz ecle, but not sure if it will work out, maybe. Prefer a cash sale. It's sitting in my living room waiting to move out. Come get it and start playing this beauty. The ramp flaps are perfect, completely flush, better than on my LE.

#24 58 days ago

Great deal, surprised it's still here..That would be the cabinet I would want.

#25 58 days ago

Great deal on a great game (and the best looking version)! Smaugs head is gold as well on your SE.

Two hobbits isnt a bad problem to have just curious in the side by side shot is the armour actually different colours or is it just the pic?

#26 58 days ago

Yes, the armor is different. On Smaug it's has a gold color, on the LE it's more bronze. Same great quality powder coating on both, I like them both.

Smaug's head is red on the LE, gold on the Smaug.

#27 58 days ago

Maybe trade for a Spider-Man, GOT premium or GB premium + cash.

#28 58 days ago

Does it have Rad Cals on it?

#29 58 days ago

No radcals. That would really be a steal at 7500.

#30 56 days ago

Had been working on a trade with a nice Pinsider for his WOZ ECLE, but it didn't work out. It was a 2014 game with older light boards and while they are working and the game is otherwise very nice, I didn't want to risk the $800-$1000 potential cost to replace the light boards and I/O board. Onward and upward, game is a steal at this price given condition.

Would consider trades for WOZ, SM, GOT and ST Prem, maybe AFM too.

#31 55 days ago

I have added my LE into the mix as I've decided it doesn't matter which game I keep, they play the same and both look like they just came out box. The LE has a full year warranty on it as it was just registered last week and only has 100 plays on it. It's a big discount off a NIB. I am firm on the price at 7500 as you can't do any better than that elsewhere and I think it's more than fair.

GLWS...

I'm anxiously awaiting the new code. I have THSE and I actually prefer the powder coating on the LE. Who woulda thunk it?!

#34 55 days ago

I'd be shocked to find another Hobbit SE for under $7500. Great price for a great seller.

#35 54 days ago

WOW! I am thinking about purchasing this even though I already have one! What a fantastic price for a fantastic pin!

#36 54 days ago

If it wasn't for the $500 in shipping I would be really tempted.. Even though I would be nuts to buy another game right now.

#37 54 days ago

Can someone please come to their senses and buy one of these!!

#38 54 days ago

One may be going to Chicago, working on shipping. Also have interest from a guy in PA, but Chicago guy is first in line. One of these will sell, prices are very good. Smaug is getting harder to find and is well below nib of around 8500-8700, LE easier to find, nib is around 8250. I'll provide an update, but I usually will go in order that interest is expressed. Price is 7500 LE, 7600 Smaug.

I am still here in Ct. if need be! Pick up. Good luck with the sales in the mean time!!

#40 54 days ago

Shipping killed the deal for smaug to chicago and buyer decided to get an LE instead. So still looking for a buyer. Price is firm at 7600 as this is about $1000 off a NIB Smaug,

I bought my NIB Smaug for $7900 and thought it was a steal. It had issues I had to deal with. A perfect one for $300 less is amazing. I might just have to buy this thing...I already have two WOZ and two TZ.

#42 54 days ago

Come make a trip to Canada and just forget it at my door. I'd sell my GB and ST Pros to get this one.

#43 53 days ago

I think the smaug's are going to hold value the best down the road, they are harder to find, aren't being discounted as much and are no longer being produced. The black arrows will likely hold the least value of the three and LE will wind up somewhere in the middle. Throw a set of black pinballs in a Smaug or LE and you've got the best feature of the BA.

#46 53 days ago

I am definitely going to Allentown and could deliver it. I would just ask for a small deposit if someone wanted m to hold it.

#47 53 days ago

Somewhat amazed that this has not sold as of yet.

Agreed. Are there just a lot of Hobbits out there right now?

Wow , $7900 is the best NIB Smaug price I have heard yet.

#50 53 days ago

It is almost impossible to get a NIB smaug for $7900 unless you have some kind of connection, these deals are not available to 99% of people. Call any distributor if you don't believe me. Best I've seen is $8500 so I'm $900 under. At $7600, there is no downside, the smaug will hold it's value better than the LE and certainly the BA. Anyway, here is some eye candy...
