My 1st NIB game ever is looking mighty fine so far. Love the new look display format with the main video in the middle and the corners containing progress indicators/possible modes.
Quoted from Plungemaster:
I hope they wont be up all the time. Would like them to only see for a few seconds, and not to often.
Not like on mm where they come out and you have to shoot them 3 times a piece. I hate that from MM.
Non main toys and mini play fields should be used very rare. And short periods. So it stays exciting instead of annoying.
It's fun bashing Trolls on MM, but gets very annoying on forums.
Where did the outlane targets go? Did they get axed or moved as I can't seem to locate them.
The Hobbit 3: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)
Blu-ray / DVD release date estimated April 2015
Perhaps on DVD/Blu Ray release time frame. Was truly hoping TH shipping wouldn't drag out like WoZ but so far......
Likely waiting for Blu-Ray release date to hit this month. Then BOOM, update time.
Extended Blu-Ray of 5-Armies due out either this summer or winter like the rest of them. No website seems to know for sure or has released definitive info.
Upper flipper shot present in game that I know of is ball exits to right out of bumpers, flows down right orbit to upper flipper for a shot to the captive ball to relight the kickback/windlance.
Curious to see what the differences are on the new pre-production machine from all the earlier prototypes. What will move, be added hardware, plastic and art wise.
Quoted from Pinstym:
Shot this 5 minute video Friday at Allentown. I had my video set to Ultra Hi-def, so kinda disappointed that the vid seems to only have 360p as the highest setting. Advice would be cool if I can fix that.
First time seeing the game in person. Wow. Pretty incredible.
Video at 2160 (4k) looks incredible. Many thanks.
Rumor is an update will be coming around the time of the Pintastic Show on the 11th-12th.
Quoted from Chrisbee:
Hi guys, I know there is a lot bad feelings out there about hobbit and how things have gone, and with reason.
But, this thread is meant to be the “Hobbit Update” thread and not a place to just dump on JJP.
To me most of you guys have got your point across with how you feel about the situation, maybe it’s time to turn this thread around.
So please post here if you have some NEW or relevant information, PLEASE!
I wish the moderation team lots of luck with that.
Pintastic should be Fantastic! The Hobbit update just a few days away.
JJP future looking even brighter.
Main takeaway from the article: "Jersey Jack Pinball will manufacture the much anticipated Hobbit line of games this fall, and has announced a collaboration with famed pinball designer Pat Lawlor on a new, original-game to be launched in the spring of 2016."
YES!! YES!! YES!!
Over / Under of there being an update given at the open house this coming weekend that says and shows Hobbit on the production line? Expecting a Hobbit update of another sort more than likely sad to say.
Wish I could be there for the fun.
Threads get derailed by those that want attention and seek drama. All permitted by pinside rules so the cycle repeats itself endlessly Hazoff.
I have to agree kind of disheartening that no Hobbit news came from the open house. Maybe they are letting the pizza settle first before delivering the news.
Nice to know a mod team member views the lack of on topic material the right to post anything they want anywhere despite the thread subject. Thanks for the clarification.
Now all that time the staff has spent on off-topic matters can be shelved to do something much more site useful.
Quoted from TigerLaw:
JJP could have filled this thread with news and buzz had this past weekend been what we were lead to believe it might be.
Regarding the discussion of Stern's LCD display as it relates to the Hobbit, I personally don't feel it's off topic. Stern's employees have been hinting that GoT is going to surpass the Hobbit and have this massive BOM with a dragon ball lock and what not...now we hear that GoT might not have an LCD display like the Hobbit will...
Directly relevant? Nope. Ballpark relevant? In lack of other news I'd say it's certainly ballpark relevant. Similar themes. Supposed to have a similar release date (though now it seems GoT will beat it to market). Similar price points. Rival development teams.
The lack of an LCD display will mean GoT is less likely to poach customers off the NIB market from TH.
