This is the second investor announcement no? Kind of annoying in that it clearly means it was $$ holding up production, not vendors.

That said.. I am all for a JJP that can produce games at the rate of Stern... that's what we all envisioned when we jumped on board.

Quoted from cscmtp:

Smaug head looks awesome. I assume that's the Smaug edition since it has the gold flakes right?

Actually, I don't see gold on top of his head so I assume this is the general LE/Standard edition.

I don't get putting gold on Smaug honestly.. even if I stay with the SE I would probably swap him out with this one..

Quoted from KingBW:

How many Hobbit LE's will be made? Sorry if it has already been mentioned ... hard to find it in a search. I asked in an email to the Jersey Jack Website, but did not get a reply to that question.

I think its 1500 for the LE and (unknown) for the SE. SE supposed to be more limited as it was only available for a short period of time.

They better start pumping these out soon or it will not matter..

Quoted from jadziedzic:

Hopefully the same "When's it going to ship?" questions will not show up in a "2016 Hobbit Update Thread".

Well how long was it since we heard "weeks... not months"?

I would love to know what's holding up production.. UL? Sound boards? Motherboards? Hiring staff?

I realize there is one machine we have all played but would that act as a "test machine" or would they put a game at play America or something before production? How long does a company put out a test game before they are comfortable with going to production?

Would love to have some clear understanding on where things are vs. seeing pics of parts taken who knows when and pending who knows what.

I think the only major component we have not seen besides harness are all the boards?

Quoted from Skyemont:

No I'm going to get my damn money back.

Might as well ask now if your not in it for the long (painfully frustrating) haul.

Quoted from Goronic:

I am happy the didn't ship what they had last December - pass!
But, they better ship something this December!

When you see what they are shipping next December all will be forgiven.

Yes month ago Joe, they still need to run test machines so production is still a while off.
