Is anyone interested in the Elite Toppers - Pinball Topper? The first out of the gate for them is The Hobbit, US pricing is $750 - I have to say I think compared to the Stern $1k toppers, they look good. Premium packaging. Nice moulding for the thing. Tasty.

Next up apparently would be Indiana Jones - with no video to work from, they are aiming to demonstrate they are more than a one trick pony. I am in discussion at the moment to distribute in the UK - any interest in Hobbit? Not sure what it would come in at yet.

Wouldn't get a yes from me either on this run, agree - to many screens, however, it is the best topper for the hobbit and a positive sign of things to come.

Timing is annoying, I’m just working on what I think is a pretty spiffing IJ topper. Guess I need to up my pace if I want to get anyone’s interest.

The Crazy thing is the LCD topper is quite a simple thing to copy using a laptop screen and some wood or acrylic work maybe £100 all in and some artistic skills. Now the one by Lior is another gravy altogether.

Smoke.. and real Piro type fireworks!

Smoke refillable every 200-300 times.. Piro effect requires maintenance every 1000 times!

Limit of 50 toppers..

I’m in!

I am me
imho. the topper is for show,attract mode and not for when you’re in game i think it’s a mistake to make it too interactive in game play - a bits ok but as others have said. you don’t look at the mantelpiece when your poking the fire

The HOBBIT topper mirrors the screen on the playfield
Okay - even cheaper to do then. VGA splitter.
£15 from china.

Saying that - they will sell out of these toppers.

If it had more things around it - but it is in effect - just a screen.

Do not think I would trust something made in Isreal to pass any safety checks - defo with pyro! You need serious legislation to get past that. Maybe they should wire some capacitors in the back reverse polarity.....

SMOKE AND PYRO on a pinball topper.
Good luck getting a CE mark for that!
Would you want that close to your ceiling.
Smoke machines also clog up if not used.......
My Tron LE doesn’t have a CE mark 😅😅
I don’t think many early Sterns do either.... unless I’m mistaken.

But like the hobbit topper @Pick Holder, don’t judge a topper by its cover...

Art Of pinball is selling 100’s of $229 action button surround and shooter skull housing at $345.. guy has made over £40K in orders in the last 2 weeks..

That says something about the quality of his products from previous products for Hobbit, POTC

I don’t think I have ever had a topper that was not stock on the game. Horses for courses I guess.
You can spend your money on what you like.

I can’t see any Topper having pyro and smoke with a CE mark and fantastic public liability insurance. Smoke machines get dangerously hot as well.
