Why move up, because I would rather not wait till the end of production. Not really concerned with what # I get. I also plan on keeping LOTR to go along side it. My main reason would be I love the theme, can't wait for the movie and feel JJP will put out a higher quality pin than stern will. I know at the moment its vaporware but I felt much more comfortable waiting for the Hobbit than getting another Stern comic/movie theme I really dont care for.
