Odd that the 1.35 code isn't up at the JJP site. Puleeeeez put it up... We wants the precious.

I'm also curious --- how many of you got the playfield protector? Is that a good thing to have? What is the effect on TH?

Quoted from hank527:

I'm curious as I thought it was being tested. Hobbit is kick pass, the more I play it, the more I like it.

Yeah it is weird that it is rated so low in the top 100. Weird to the point of wondering whether it is a legit rating. No way all of the negatives at the front end of the voting are still legit. And why is there only voting on one edition of the pin when most Sterns are split into voting on pro vs LE?

#2157 3 years ago

That's brilliant.

Quoted from koops:I think it needs to be something similar to the mode starts.
You get the 5 symbols all joining together at the start. At the end it should show something similar to show progress to getting the arkenstone. All power stops from the flippers. balls drain and then the video starts.
Perhaps something similar to how the smaug multiball lock has 3 movie scenes, each ark mode when completed should show part of the movie where the stone is revealed. Once all three modes have been completed show this ( » YouTube video ) cue epic music and a final victory mode.

I don't see it. Hmm

#2231 3 years ago

My goblin return lane wireform sometimes stays up, and when it does the ball gets stuck there. Spoke to very nice guy who does service for dealer, and he said to "bend it down a little." I can barely figure out how to "get in there" let alone bend it, and don't want to make it worse. Anybody else had this issue?

Does anybody know why Hobbit doesn't even appear on this list at all? http://www.ipdb.org/lists.cgi?anonymously=true&list=top300

Quoted from BowlingJim:

Joined the club on Sunday. I have been making trades and selling games all summer that ended in me getting a RR WOZ and a Hobbit SE with the radcals. I love both of the JJP games.

I got those flipper toppers too, they look so great IRL

Quoted from BladeFury:

Added some more little mods by taking out my lit clear center of the flipper buttons and ring button replacing it with gold centers...pretty slick in my opinion
After and before pictures:

Love it where are the buttons from?

Just received the ring button mod, engraved style (I would have gotten laser cut if I had the stainless color pin). Pic attached, here is what it looks like. You can also see the gold dragon flipper topper mods, green bands, and the plastics protectors kit in yellow. This week I added a connection to my Bob Carver Sunfire subwoofer, which improved the sound a lot. Love my #TH !

Quoted from PinFan4Life:

Here's pics of my new Black Arrow.

I was prepared not to love the black arrow but it is cool. I'm still glad I did the Smaug but if I had had the choice I would have picked this one and saved the $$.

Quoted from Goronic:

I spoke to the seller and he recommended removing the original sticker

I pulled the sticker. It comes off clean.

Where do you folks purchase your various rubber replacement kits? I want to replace the rubber all around the playfield but don't know the sizes of the bands. Sorry if dumb question.

Anybody know when the next software update will drop (after 1.90; the 1.94 and 1.95 are private updates blahblah)?

Has anyone tried to make under cabinet lighting for Hobbit? I know it might be odd but at Pintastic New England VIP area there were amazing uses of it all of which required the lighting to be linked to gameplay. Could that even be done with Hobbit?

#3673 2 years ago
Quoted from Rock914:

Thanks lermods
Yes it can and I have done it. I have also done it on Dialed in, with Jack actually. Here is Jack checking it out.

Groovy! Any video of the hobbit kit? And on your site there is an option to bundle it with a back cabinet kit; what's that?
