About eight months ago, my friend Bill told me that I must get the Hobbit pinball machine. I pondered that idea for a bit and thought to myself I’m not sure. After watching tons of videos, I decided to buy it. Now it’s my number one go to game in my collection. I said if I love it so much why not make a one of a kind topper!
I made four attract modes and other various modes which are in synch with the game. Each lock has its own light show. Multiball has a very special light show when the player achieves this goal. When bumpers are activated the player is introduced to water splash effects displayed by the LEDS. When the player achieves a high score, you are entertained with a special light show. When you get an extra ball, the player is entertained with another special light show. But its not over yet!
I decided to take all of my skills and blend them all together. Earlier in my career during my show business work, I made a very small but powerful smoke machine. It was always a project that magicians and show directors ask me to make. With those requests, I decided to make it into a topper which you are seeing as of today. There is minor maintenance filling the smoke fluid for the machine each 500 triggers. I can control the flow of the smoke that omits from the machine. I can control the flow of air and also the timing of the smoke. I can also control dragon to omit smoke puffs and smoke rings! The smoke can be activated with almost all the features of the game when needed. I can do everything that I want with this topper. If that’s not enough I constructed the wings with big plastic brackets which has flexibility. The wings move during the game! The topper weight right now is around 12kg. The houses are fully solid cast all around its not just front. Everything is all custom made by my very own hands!
After six months of hard work, I’m very excited to share with you my awesome creation! . The topper is too complicated to create and the cost is extremely high. Please do not message me asking to make you one or about the cost. Please respect my wishes since I will not be taking any offers. I want it to be my own creation and this is not for sale. Sorry…. At the moment I’m working on a topper for another machine that will also be awesome when completed. I will be very happy to share details of the topper with you when its ready.
As you know the topper looks much better in person. Video editing is not my forte so It’s really hard for me to edit the video well enough to get all the lighting effects in the video.
English is not my first language so I’m very sorry for some spelling mistakes
Thanks to all of the people who support me and have helped me during this project
AGAIN, THIS TOPPER IS NOT FOR SALE!
