Quoted from lllvjr:

17-18 one of those

Ok so monday or tuesday of next week, sweet! Thanks for the info.

#2252 5 years ago

IAPPA starts today

#2253 5 years ago

Somebody send us some updated info on the Hobbit when available! Thanks

#2254 5 years ago

Tomorrow likely. Today is set up

Ok, looks like we'll need to wait one more day

#2256 5 years ago

Maybe tonightimage-424.jpg

#2257 5 years ago

That very much looks like a Smaug Edition...

#2258 5 years ago

There is something in the upper right corner of the playfield that looks like a LCD display in this picture or am I wrong?

#2259 5 years ago

Nice catch. I believe you are correct.

#2261 5 years ago

That also looks like a lit button on the lockdown bar just next to his watch. The armor doesn't look very...uh...*gold* in the pics. Hopefully it looks better in person. Lorenzo? Any thoughts?

#2262 5 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

The armor doesn't look very...uh...*gold* in the pics

I looks like an antique gold color which I think would be appropriate for the pin. I wouldn't expect a bright yellow gold ...

#2263 5 years ago

My point was that it didn't have the metallic finish like the RR75 has. But now that I look at the picture again, I see that the RR75 next to it doesn't show that, either. So it's gotta just be bad lighting.

#2264 5 years ago

I was about to say that I hope this round doesn't contain all the bitching, but then I thought, . . . wait a second, JJP seems to be responding to it by making positive changes . . . hmmmm.

#2265 5 years ago

Lol,, I'm not saying anything to get my self in trouble... But when I need to find something fuck csi I'm going to pinside

#2266 5 years ago

Why is the pic taken from the ground level.

#2267 5 years ago

I'm really excited about this game. The audio quality David has to work with will be killer

Heh, I'll say this, when I saw that being (constructively!) critical brought about positive change I definitely kept it up. I have some idea of what to expect with the changes, but I'm looking forward to the actual reveal of any updates just as much as anyone else.

#2269 5 years ago

There can be no doubt that Smaug now eats and spits pinballs.

Oh, and a lower playfield viewed only by the LCD in Bag-End.

#2270 5 years ago

Aurich, I liked the red armor you did in your SE mock up. Would be curious to see it in that red with red buttons.

#2271 5 years ago
Quoted from lllvjr:

Maybe tonight

PLEASE TONIGHT.

We're going off the rails..... on the hype-train!

I haven't seen the Smaug armor in person, they just had a bare cab with the art out at Expo (which looked great). Metallic (just had to catch myself writing Metallica!) powdercoat is really tough to photograph, so I'd withhold judgement until you see it in person personally.

I don't think the red I mocked up would work with this cabinet, I did that one with different art.

#2274 5 years ago

Hopefully they move at least one of those over to Free Play Florida after they are done with them at IAAPA.

#2275 5 years ago

Looking forward to seeing all the changes.

I bet you will be able to shoot into the Smaug area somehow at least.

#2277 5 years ago

Thanks for posting that pic

Looks like there's going to be some new information to digest soon.

You can't be serious? The game designer is long gone from JJP. At most there will be a few superficial changes like a hurried replacement for the book after it suddenly became a "placeholder" when the game bombed at Expo.

I hope so

Wow are you a negative nancy.

#2281 5 years ago
Quoted from Pinchroma:

Just saying not to set your hopes to high so not to be too disappointed. At Expo everyone expected the Smaug toy to be the greatest thing since sliced bread and we all know how that turned out.

#2282 5 years ago

Alex, will the SE have a gold shooter rod? As shown also in the brochure. The one on the picture has a silver one.

Turned out to be the greatest thing since sliced NY bagels

Now you are talking. Its hard to get a good bagel down here in Florida outside of Ft Lauderdale.

I don't take myself too seriously, especially when it comes to pinball, but yes I believe there will be more than superficial changes.

Jack said new shots. That seems like the best area for new shots, so I would say logically, it is more likely than not, that you will be able to shoot into Smaug somehow.

#2286 5 years ago
Quoted from Pinchroma:

And obviously hasn't been following the post-expo info. I'm really interested to see the new playfield art

#2287 5 years ago

I keep checking for updates during the breaks on jury duty!

I hope you are right, but I am not confident that much can be done in one month without last minute changes to the playfield itself. I look forward to playing it this week. My favorite part of this game is the huge number of individually controlled drop targets. I am a drop target kind of guy and to me this is the main "toy" on this game.

#2289 5 years ago

It's been too quiet on Pinside the last week or so. Excited to see what this sparks in the coming days. Ideally it remains positive...

#2290 5 years ago

Jack has not been very free with info and updates on THLE

Book was a place holder the whole time.

You could be right too...I guess we'll find out soon. The drops do look sweet.

I don't like the shade of yellow he used for the flipper buttons

#2294 5 years ago

Very anxious to see this.

So why on earth would they not say that during the reveal? If this is true it would be an epic mistake considering how many people I know personally who cancelled their orders based on the reaction from Expo. I hope they do come up with something cool in place of the book. Maybe something that initially got cut for cost reasons might be returning? An LCD?

The whole reveal was off......very strange.

#2297 5 years ago

And what about the image in the middle between the speakers?

It is a decal.

#2299 5 years ago

thks for ruining my hopes

#2300 5 years ago

Looks like the book became a LCD-book.
