Also, I am working on a simplified, non-lighted FREE version that you crafty folks can print with a 3D printer and paint yourself! I still have some details to work out to make this an easy print, but I've included some pics on my progress.

The free version will have considerably less detail (kind of like 480i vs 1080p), but can still be painted to look nice if you have the skills.

Look for this to be available soon!

I just installed mine and I really like it. Tastefully done. It also makes it clear the location of the Shire shot

Nice, thanks netman! Yes, there can be no mistake where Bag End is now

Speaking of the shire, I wish I could adapt this mod to LOTR, but that seems like a bit too much going on in that location with the VUK.

I've posted the tessellation file for the basic mod to Thingiverse if you 3D priinter owners want to give it a go. For some unknown reason, the Thingiview model isn't showing up, but you can still download the .STL file and print just fine:

Let me know how it turns out!

Funny, I was thinking the same thing but I agree, there is no way to fit it in there that I can see.

Received my mod for Bag End and I can't say enough how impressed I am! The attention to detail on this makes it appear to have come from the factory this way. I can't imagine not having this mod installed now! Thanks for producing such a quality mod. The Hobbit is my favorite machine and you've just made it that much nicer. Thank you!!

Thanks for taking the time to post fmetz374 ! Each one has subtle differences; I spend so much time individually painting these that it feels like seeing one of my kids all grown up, making his way out there in the wild, lol

I'm with you on Hobbit - it's my favorite, too. It's the only pin I own that I still find new stuff and a bunch of surprises even after over a year of ownership. I still have no idea how backstab or treasure hunt works or even how to activate them and that's the way I like it. I still haven't even defeated Smaug .

Glad I could help make your Hobbit experience just a bit better!!

I'm making more - but taking a break for the sailing season. Look for a restock at the back half of summer.
