Here's my thing...I just think there's too much dragon and too much gold. The original cabinet is much more colorful and represents all the movies, not just the dragon (who has a minor role in the movies and the book). The colors are much more balanced on the LE, and the seaside bronze fits the color scheme of the PF better, IMHO. I also like the red dragon toy better. And now that they put the picture of Smaug dead center on the PF, staring at me, I don't see any reason to see him everywhere else. When I look at the Smaug Edition, I'm like, "Where's the f-ing hobbit???"
And I can always put the Smaug decals on...they just won't go well with seaside bronze.
