I like the lower one with the black letters. i always think how they should of made it metal instead of a sticker when i play it after playing GOT with its metal plate.

#3 2 years ago

Did you like the gold ring? The original is clear

#4 2 years ago

I checked these out in Larry's showroom and they are fantastic looking. High quality must add mod to the Hobbit!!

#6 2 years ago

Should have come from the factory like this. Great mod!

#7 2 years ago

just ordered the black lettered one! will be a nice touch. how about a plate to replace the sticker on the head between the speakers to?

#9 2 years ago

#10 2 years ago

#11 2 years ago

The Ring is pure genius

Prefer the black letter version.

#14 2 years ago

Great looking mods Larry. I think these are no brainer mods for the Hobbit.

#15 2 years ago

Ordered mine - black letters looks better.

#16 2 years ago

The laser cut ones look killer on a Black Arrow Hobbit I think. That's why we made two styles

I think laser cut looks better and can't wait to put it on my SE! Thanks

#18 2 years ago

I got the cutout one as well, since I have the LE which has the rustic bronze trim which I'm thinking will look nice.

Any way to do the plate in gold (brass)?

Are these listed on the Pinside Market, didn't see them?

We probably could but the extra plating would add more cost. Since much of the machine is in stainless we decided to go that route.

The two versions are listed on my website
flipnoutpinball.com

Thanks for all the orders!

Valid point Larry, I was thinking from a SE Gold version. Did you use stainless steel sheets to cut them out from? If so, they make a Titanium (Gold) Stainless Steel sheet as well. It would eliminate the need to plate them thus making it cheaper to produce??? I'm by no means an expert, just throwing out an idea for those that have the SE version!

#23 2 years ago

Love it! Cheap sticker look gone, thanks for the creativity and please for the love of god do the top one between the speakers!?!??! Make it cutout to match my bottom and I'm in SOLD sorry already had my button done the flip flop of the one you sent ...

Does the LEDs show through the center on yours? If so how does it look? We kept ours clear for that reason

Very sexy with the black engraving and gold ring... will order one today

Totally agree about the sticker replacement between the two speakers up top but I'm worried about the adhesive over time

#27 2 years ago

Installed it today. Thank you. Looks stock and a thousand times better than the sticker

Could the lazer cut one be cut from different stock instead of stainless steel? ie. brass/bronze etc?

#32 2 years ago

You should add Canada to the shipping list so I can order one, looks great

#33 2 years ago

Very nice and tasteful mod. I'd also think brass or gold would be a popular seller. Would this be a possibility down the road?

Email me your address and I'll figure out shipping for you so you can but one.

Thanks

Several folks have mentioned different colors so I'll look into it. If there is enough interest I could add them to the options.

Just installed the laser cut Gold Ring Plate on a Black Arrow Hobbit. It looks awesome. Also installed my gold plated buttons on the flipper buttons using the black button from the original. I think it's perfect. I had to remove the transparent button from mine and the original Black button from original to make the one I installed.

iam in for a kit if you make the gold plate. laser cut for me.

#40 2 years ago

Probably not going to make any more after this. Just not cost effective to make a few unless I charge a lot more

#41 2 years ago

These are still available. My last post may have been confusing. I'm still going to make the current design just not any new metals

I just installed my Gold Ring Mod and changed the flipper buttons to Larry's Gold ones as well. Took 5 mins or less for all 3 to change but really, really adds to the look. Attaching before and after. Thanks Larry!!!
