Does anyone know if JJP sells the rubber trim that they had on WOZ on the top of the head or backbox?

I'm working on finalizing a deal for a Hobbit but the top of the head has a small dent/scuff on the left side. I noticed my WOZ has that rubber protection piece but the Hobbit apparently doesn't. If I could get that piece I could just cover up the part that has a small scuff.

Excited to be close to getting one.

Does this game have the eerie and iconic "Misty Mountains" song in it?

Just curious.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Have the talk with your mother about Misty Mountain.

I climbed the Misty Mountains (not mothers) years ago. Even planted a flag at the top.

I'm just about to join the Hobbit owners club, hoping the song is in it because I haven't heard it the dozen times I've played it.

Quoted from fordtudoor:

I'm beginning to think that distributors are getting preferential treatment over private individuals with older pre-order dates.

Unfortunately, sadly this is likely true. Happened to me when I bought my WOZ, ordered right at beginning. Main reason why I'm buying a used Hobbit over NIB.

I'm a JJP fan, but it infuriated me when I confirmed disti's who were placing new orders for games were getting them before many of us who preordered years in advance. That's why preorder system doesn't work. I get JJP needs to keep disti channel happy, but then don't take preorders direct from customers.

Still happy WOZ owner and JJP fan though.

Just joined the Hobbit club!! Just had my used one delivered the other day and set up last night. Loving it.

Is the new code up yet?

Quoted from Pimp77:

With home use it's probably not necessary, but I can cut this thing off in a few years time and have basically a NOS pf in my game.

With respect, I feel like we've become our grandparents who used to cover their furniture in plastic. Yep it preserves it, but its just not the same. Just one person's opinion.

#2714 2 years ago
Quoted from Bricarus:

How is The Hobbit with respect to code at this point? How has JJP been in that regard over all? I haven't been following JJP closely, but now I'm thinking of getting one as my next pin later this year.

The code is amazing. JJP (well Keith) have proven they are committed to frequent code updates and delivered on Hobbit just like WoZ. As is, one of the deepest games out there.
