Who knows?? Really wish Stern would announce soon though!
I'm sure if I ever break down and buy used, they'll announce the very next day . . . .
Haha reading back on this thread...
TSPP acquired. Check.
Start saving pin funds again.....what game to buy next???
With talk of Spiderman VE, no more LOTR VE rumours?
Quoted from thedefog:
I'll start that one again. LotRVE in time for x-mas 2015. Best x-mas ever if that can happen. Please Stern?
Too soon. SMVE is going to be a 'feeler' pin on cost to redesign (if they do any redesigns, i.e. LEDs, display panel, plastics, etc...) vs. profit margin. If SMVE does well, I guarantee LOTRVE will be next...xmas 2016?

Do you have hard information on this, or are you just surmising?
When did these Spiderman VE rumors start? I seem to have missed it.
For me personally, I really hope LOTR VE is next and comes soon. I have my money ready, Stern!
A poster that seems to have an inside line on Stern's plans and has been right in the past predicted it, with backup from others that claim to have spoken with "people that would know." You can read all about it here:
Like you I'd much prefer to see an LOTR VE, but I have to admit that the idea of re-skinning SM with non-movie art and sound is pretty cool and could be a major success if done right. And who knows, if it works well maybe Stern would be motivated to make additional "improvements" (i.e. better sound quality) for an LOTR VE if/when they get around to making it.
Im just speculating. I even think it'll be longer than 2016 before we see an LotR ve, if one is even done. But I think there's plenty demand for one. Much more than SM that's for sure.

Wasn't this thread started by someone who claims to have inside information? It seems as if there is a lot of information going around. In any case, thanks for the link, I'll check it out, but I may end up feeling depressed afterwards.
