If you decide to get a hobbit (good choice by the way), I would recommend finding a well kept HUO version. It will save you several thousand over NIB, and you can get the Smaug or LE version for the look you want for cabinet and trim color.

You may want to consider a Monster Bash remake. Really nice looking, good for beginners, and even hardcore pinball fans would nod in approval when they saw it.

A bonafide classic!

Quoted from vireland:

When you're standing on solid ground, it's very easy to stomp confidently.

LOL. You obviously don’t know the difference between opinion and fact.

Quoted from vireland:Which is, ironically, YOUR opinion. See? I DO know!

Not ironically. Both are opinions.

Edit: Ah, I see your point. My point is your comment about solid ground implied your opinion of hobbit was fact. It is, in fact, opinion ... Well that is an odd sentence lol. Whatever, some hate hobbit, some love it. Carry on.

Pfft. You should be able to look at my post history and figure out that I couldn't give a rip about downvotes and you will ALWAYS know where you stand with me if I interact with you or post on a subject.

I do agree that pinsiders should speak their minds, without caring about the downvotes. Differing and candid opinions are why I love reading this damn site.

Play them both before choosing. Though you may very well like potc better. Like vireland said, even if you don’t like potc you will able to sell it with little to no loss. Enjoy whatever you get, having a pinball machine under your own roof rocks!

Got it fixed. Boyyyyy I am so in love with this game. The sound and design are so engrossing. My kids can play it because it starts slow. They really like the dragon and how colorful it is. JJP is just something special. I’m thoroughly impressed. Will definitely buy more in the future.

My family likes it alot too. Just amazing theme integration and mode creativity.
