#4 3 years ago

hello,
Could someone ask who made the hobbit pinball topper, I am to far away from expo to do it myself
Thanks

#5 3 years ago

Topper was designed by Laseriffic and Tilt Graphics Inc. For more information on price and release date go to Laseriffic.com I'm sure they will be posting info there soon.

#6 3 years ago

Ok Thanks but nothing on laseriffic yet

#7 3 years ago

We are waiting on approval from WB, I should hear something in about a week or so. It will only be sold through our website and I will make a announcement once were ready to go.
Thanks

I think that topper is too similar to the existing backglass artwork IMHO...
I really liked the original concept of the hobbit home one better that was never completed.

#10 3 years ago

Looks fabulous is it released yet

#11 3 years ago

Saw it in person at Expo and it really looks nice

#12 3 years ago

I thought that they were going to have a "interactive" topper of some sort. I guess that was just wishful thinking that turned into a rumor. It looks nice ... I saw it in person also.

#13 3 years ago

I want the topper and my Hobbit won't be here till April!

#14 3 years ago

Is this the official JJP topper they mentioned back on the google group a while back? I thought I read a rumour about JJP having a topper in the works.

#15 3 years ago

I really have no idea. I approached them with our idea months back .

Looks great, any problems with install? It's not hard but your the first person to post so I thought I would ask.

Actually I couldn't get it to work plugged into where it said too because I tested that plug and it was giving me 12v dc but the ground wasn't showing ground...I hooked it to a separate power supply until I have a chance to look into that factory plug and see what is going on with the ground...

#24 3 years ago

Ok here is the deal on this. The line hasnt been turned on yet from JJP with a code update so the topper will not light. Keith is working on it now and I will post the update and send it out to customers that have ordered.

thanks and sorry for any confusion.

Awesome I kind of wondered and was looking thru the menu for something like that just in case...
Thx Joe

I couldn't get it to work with the plug indicated, but its not really a problem for me. I had previously installed a Stern Whitstar/Sam style Accessory Power Supply buss, to power cabinet under lighting, lighted flipper buttons, etc. So i just modified the cable to plug it in to there.

Has the code been done as I would like to order one of your toppers . I previously did but something went wrong so I will try again , can I confirm you deliver to Australia

#28 3 years ago

I can help here. The new code 1.94 adds code that lights the topper. Also, to answer a question from way back, AFAIK this topper is the one that Jack had been talking about that was in the works.

#29 3 years ago
Quoted from Georgeh:

can I confirm you deliver to Australia

Yes we do, just send me an email to laseriffic@att.net and I will send you a quote. I only have 2 left and we will be sold out till next year

#30 3 years ago

One left, I should have more built ready to go 1st week in Jan.

#31 3 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Just WOW!

#32 3 years ago

Sold out.. for now.

#33 3 years ago

I pulled in some help and we now have Hobbit toppers back in stock.

#34 3 years ago

laseriffic, I've got the 1.94P code but it seems like the topper only responds to what I do with the included remote. Is there a way to tell the topper to do the functions the game asks it to? Should the game be able to tell the topper to do specific colors based on the gameplay?

#35 3 years ago

Which plug are you guys referring to? The blue 2-pin plug in the back left works on my game. Im running 1.94.

I think goldant was thinking that the topper would have some interactive lighting features, just like what was rumored early on. Several people would want that and pay extra for that. I wish JJP would make a "add-on" connector that mod people could use for "interactive" lights or automated mod features. Stern has connections that mod people can tap into for different interactive things - example is interactive toppers and interactive translite lighting/flashers. But I'm sure it's not Stern's intention for people to tap into those connections for after-market mods. JJP makes pinball and that's what they are about. They do that extremely well and I get it. Some of us mod-aholics like interactive add-ons. The people that make mods are limited with what they can do to make interactive mods for JJP pins. "It is what it is"

#37 3 years ago

Questions....
So it's only a light up topper, not interactive?
Does it tap into 12v?
Thanks

Anyone know if this topper still available? I can't seem to find anyone who's carrying it.
