Recently picked up a Hobbit LE!

Where has this game been all my life? I'm about 50 games in and I'm not understanding how this is commonly rated last among JJPs (or a lot of machines for that matter).

It has literally caused me to have a knee jerk reaction and dump every Stern I have that doesn't have proper theme integration (imo of course). That's left me with keeping only Mando Prem & JP Prem, which I think are close from a theme integration perspective.

For a newer player like me, the theme & audio capturing you into the game, will allow you to shoot for hours regardless of the playfield. Again, can only speak for myself.

Someone tell me if I'm missing out on another machine like The Hobbit somewhere !

Yes! This is on my radar...just trying to figure out how much I'm willing to pay for it considering the Stern prices are increasing.

Quoted from mikepmcs:

I happened upon this thread while contemplating your question. Reality is I literally don't know what theme integration means to be quite honest so I was trying to educate myself.

What's crazy to me is no one even mentions The Hobbit in that post.

Quoted from bbulkley:

Dialed In has great theme integration, but I personally couldn't stand that theme and sold mine a few months later.
JJP POTC is one of the favorites in my collection, although it's prohibitively expensive nowadays.
You mentioned JP Prem - do you have the bootleg software that adds the movie assets? That took the game to another level for me.
Star Trek: TNG has fantastic theme integration. They even got the real cast to do voiceover for the game. A lot of folks are scared to buy one because it can be difficult to maintain. I restored mine myself though, and it was the first pin I've restored. Been working great ever since.
Getaway is a simple and affordable game with awesome theme integration. I never get tired of shifting gears.

Thanks. I'm trying to find a Dialed In, I've been convinced. I played one at the Pinball Museum in Tennessee, but at the time I was new to JJP and wasn't sure what to make of their style. I've since grown to respect it quite a bit.

Yea, I do have JP Premium, no I haven't tried the custom code. I'm usually not into that. To be honest, my favorite thing is to keep a machine as stock as possible, I'm just not into mods all like that. However, I may consider testing that bootleg code out.
