Please can someone tell me

#853 3 years ago
Quoted from B9:

There's a matrix with the differences floating out there but the highlights as I remember them are:
LE has better trim and numbered game - rules and gameplay are the same on all JJP models
Yes there's footage from all three movies but all the footage is not in the game yet because it's missing some mini wizard modes such as battle of the five armies.

Thank you Then its not bad if i only can get hold of a standard version ?

#855 3 years ago
Quoted from Pimp77:

No, not bad...the standard is missing a few things like the axes on the slings and the barrel bumpers I believe. Same gameplay.

Ok If i can get Le i will buy that one but dont think its possible. One thing i do know is that i gonna buy one.

I have heard that they break easy ? I just gonna have it in my mancave

How many of you guys in this thread has got their The Hobbit broken from out of the box ?

#869 3 years ago
Quoted from murfe88:

I just picked up my Hobbit LE yesterday morning. I absolutely love it. I bought it from another collector locally. The only issue I have notice so far is Smaug’s Head and mouth wasn’t moving. I lifted up the playfield and noticed the connector in Smaugs head came undone. I re-connected it. It worked for a few games then stopped working again. Plugged it back in then after a few games the mouth stopped moving. I gave up and went to bed.

Dosent sound good Hope you can fix it

You guys that bought this pinball, can you describe if you got any mechanic problem ?

I have ordered a limited now and can't anything about mechanic stuff, I know a guy that can help me if a call but don't want to call all the time.
