Item description

This Hobbit Gold was part of the LAST batch of Hobbit's produced at JJP and has never had any unresolved issues. Documented (Invoice with my name and address) home use only with 591 plays on Audit listed for Sale As Is. I reset audits accidentally somewhere around 700 plays, so I'd say the machine has 1,500 single owner games on it. Factory installed playfield protector on top of ceramic (I think) clear coat with no major dimpling or defects. Includes all original "Gold" versions... Red accented Smaug head, beautiful gold/black armor and lock down, beautiful side art, invisiglass, shaker motor, certificate of authenticity.

I have had 3 technical items of note since unboxing the game. 1) A rubber was triggering a pop and needed loosening 2) A screw hole underneath the playfield needed some match stick pieces for the screw to catch again and 3) the Goblin started sticking after 7 or 8 months and I replaced it under warranty.

Additions include color cycling topper, mirror blades, kicker/guide plastic protectors, updated Titan Rubbers and balls when needed, and an external Polk PS10 Subwoofer. Thorin and Gandalf ~6 inch action figures (removable).

Two small blemish items underneath the playfield protector in the second to last picture. It actually looks like adhesive white backing that somehow got left in there.

Game is located on main floor just inside main door atop 4-step front stoop. Cash and carry preferred.
