Quoted from Jappie:

I just received my NOS playfield from BAA. Yay!
After unpacking it, it struck me how totally different this playfield looks from the one inside my machine. I mean, I know there are differences in quality for the playfields of this title, but dayum, to me, this is shocking!
Luckily, the NOS playfield looks much better than my original one. It's not perfect, but the color palette is much richer. Graphics are a lot nicer and less 'hard'. The playfield inside my machine has this green hue over the graphics, which the NOS one does not have. And Gandalf... well, see for yourself.
Of the following pictures, every first picture is the playfield that's inside my machine. Every second picture is the NOS playfield. All pictures were taken in similar lighting conditions. They were not edited, except for size.

I have had a lot of lotr m’s trying to find the mint hou one. One thing I learned is the playfeilds changed with build date. I had three next to each all hou and the late games the graphics not as good. 2003-04 seemed to be the best.

Quoted from uncivil_engineer:

I think the playfield color quality was an issue all through the early 2000s. I noticed the same thing on a couple of different TSPP last year.

I did find one with perfect playfeild. I had two 2006 machines that were made two days appart and the one had the green hue. As I started to look close I believe it was from light and a fading effect on the playfeild. TSPP was same way but the pink or on some the red car you tell the difference. That one the early Games we’re not as good. In 2005 mid production they ran out of Gandalf igures and he changed to Gandalf the grey with no horse.

FYI if anyone is looking for LOTR cabinet decs I do have a set which can be hard to find in next gen quality. I had one once that had a perfect playfeild but fading. I ended up selling as is.

Quoted from trk12fire:

Trying a new and unique powder coating for LOTR. I wasn't able to get it plated, so I'm choosing Transparent Copper. I'll post pics when it's rebuilt.

Looks very cool

Quoted from Neal_W:

Here are a couple pics of mine FYI. PF looks normal, and appears to be stamped 07 04 (Aug/2004 I assume). It's a LotR standard and has Gandalf w/horse figure.

No green hue -

"LIGHT ALL RINGS" has good
yellow/orange registration.

Yes most feel 2004-2005 was the best year on them. From what I see yes it was.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

What's the story with Gandalf on the horse? I am fairly certain my game is a Standard, but I have the Surfing Gandalf. I thought he was supposed to be on Shadowfax?

Yes ran out Gandalf grey came mid to late 2005.

#2382 3 years ago

One can buy figures on eBay. They are just lord of rings toy figures but getting harder to find. I added them all to my LE and switched grey to white on horse on one I sold as guy wanted it. There are threads on here on how to do it.

Quoted from latenite04:

Search for "armies of middle earth". That is the series from play along that the figures came from.
Gandalf on Shadowfax
ebay.com link » Lord Of The Rings Gandalf The White On Shadowfax Armies Of The Middle Earth

Yes those are them.

Quoted from WizardsCastle:

The VUK in my Shire is not popping up the balls consistently. 70% of the time, the ball ends up in the Shire, and stays there until ball search.
Then it usually tries to pop it up, but it ends up not getting onto the wireform, and dropping back into the Shire.
Does this sound like the switch or VUK or both?
Thanks

The above post is correct. 90 percent of time is you bend it will get you a little more time but most likely just replace.
