The only thing I've ever heard about a topper was this design by Illvjr, posted in a long lost bag end thread about 4 months ago. His quote from that thread....

"This was the bag end topper I had designed for the game. It's not going into production unless I did a aftermarket as a mod. My design had LEDs inside the house to light up the windows simulating the sun. And the door would be on a actuator. When u hit the start button the door would open half way to simulate starting the journey. When the game would end it would close...
Pinnovators retains the drawing still but it wasn't submitted to wb."

I'd be very interested in buying this, as I'm sure others would as well. Beautiful design & functionality. So are there any plans for after-market production?

Thanks for the refresher, Poaky. I, too, would be interested in purchasing this topper. Can't wait to get reacquainted with Hobbit tomorrow at Pinfest! This pin is gonna' rock!

#5758 4 years ago

That's what it's all about!

I thought that was The Hokey Pokey?

#5760 4 years ago

Put me down for one of those toppers as well.

#5761 4 years ago

I'm more excited to see that topper in action than Smaug

/snark

Looks awesome...

Isn't that more of a scrotum?

No no no. Look lower

#5767 4 years ago

Joe from Pinstar is bringing a Hobbit to Allentown today, right? So we should get some relevant updates on this thread finally in the next 24-48. Would be welcome relief from unrelated posts. Hoping for some updated code and assuming that would logically be the only thing "new" we'll see. Anyone going, please post videos of the backbox lcd and the small book in particular if there's new code.

YES I will have a brand NEW Hobbit there... Check my post above for into / pictures / updates on the show...

Pinfest 2015

Here's the first of many Hobbit videos.

#5773 4 years ago

Sweet, any idea what is new/changed in this prototype?

#5774 4 years ago

So why did the game reset at the end of the ball.
Looks like it shut off during play.

#5775 4 years ago

Does anyone know if this is coming to either PAGG or the PNW meeting? Anywhere for the "westerners'

#5776 4 years ago

didn't want this video to end lol, Love the music, can't wait to get mine

#5777 4 years ago

This is a production model

#5778 4 years ago

looks great man, what a long way pinball has come!!!

Because of me corrupting the code after I downloaded Keith's update -

I'll try again.....LOL

#5781 4 years ago

Looks great and seems faster than in some of the other videos I've seen.

Thank you for posting the vid. How are the sounds and lights in person? Does it immerse you into the game? Or are the still adding a lot of sound files to it?

Did Jack say that? I know it was supposed to be close to complete. If true then we should start seeing the first ship VERY VERY soon.

#5784 4 years ago

I hope the backboard that is all black will have some art work or design. Seeing it all black like that makes it look unfinished. Would be great to see more brick work to match the cool stone arcs.

Overall its looking nice hope we get to see this @ PAGG

There are sculpted pillars and an archway behind Smaug. These details are difficult to see in that video because of the harsh lighting and camera angle.

#5786 4 years ago

Looking great Jack! Eagerly waiting delivery.

Yes I know the sculpted pillars done by Matt these look great! I mean on the black wood backboard, this needs a decal or something to make it look complete. It's like having a TAF without the backboard decal, it just looks bad.

#5789 4 years ago

That game is ready...set..ship. Looks fantastic, Sounds fantastic = probably is fantastic.

Great work JJP team. Only problem is that I do not have it in my living room yet

Can't wait!

#5790 4 years ago

Still don't know about those daft things on the slingshots, what are they trying to accomplish? Game looks good though.

Edit: that colour scheme fits the game much better than the gold, nice.

Thanks,
Even if the door didn't open with coding I thought it would still be cool to have made and leds installed inside of it...i came close to having the prototype made.

Five new modes added since the last showing. Also skill shots and some more stuff on the "Ring Button". Plus a pile of bug fixes, tweaked up graphics, more sound effects and speech from the movies.

#5797 4 years ago

Wow, nice long video tata. Thanks.
I'm really liking the whole package. The colors, smaug, some of the call outs....The trim color and the cabinet decals look great. Very impressed overall. Would love to play it.

#5798 4 years ago
