Pre-ordered LE 2 months ago but didn't ask about the number.

May switch to SE. Waiting until next week to see if they unveil anything new.

#302 4 years ago
Quoted from Kcpinballfan:

We haven't seen the powdercoat yet, im thinking its gonna look awesome. Its not the same powder as MMr.

You got that right. lol.

#303 4 years ago

Changed mine to SE. Still unknown on number.

#304 4 years ago

We have #649. Probably staying with the LE.

#305 4 years ago

I switched to the SE but I don't know my number on it.

#306 4 years ago

I switched to SE, my # is 73 !

#307 4 years ago

If I switch to the SE do I keep my number?

#308 4 years ago
Quoted from Pinchroma:

You got that right. lol.

Alex - looking for an opinion. Us buyers, not having the benefit of comparing the two powder coats to each other - what looks better: the bronze or gold? I assume the bronze is a bit more unique?

This is one of the primary things I'm trying to find out before I decide whether to switch. I really HATE the MMr gold, and I have even been moving away from actual bronze on some of my other games. That said, the Smaug armor color sounds cool and I like the cabinet better on the SE. However, the bronze sounds cool too. I'd really like to see (or hear details about) the 2 finish colors before having to decide whether to switch or not. The flyer images are not enough to judge anything.

BTW - if you switch, do you have to get the gold Smaug? This sounds kinda dumb to me (again...without having seen it) so I might want the SE with a red Smaug.

Jack said on Google groups that you could have the red or the gold smaug for the smaug edition.

Purely subjective and I can't answer it.

Jack stated on the JJP forum that SE owners get a choice in what version of Smaug they want in their pin.

Ow already answered I see now

Alex, we have to decide before 1 December if we want to switch. When before that date can we make a comparison between the coats?

#314 4 years ago
Quoted from Euchrid:

Not if somebody else already got that number. So it would be wise to mail Jen and ask her to hold on to your number till your final decision.

#315 4 years ago

Switched to SE, didn't get an option for a different number - so still #1021

#316 4 years ago

I spoke too soon earlier when I said I switched to #1337 SE -- it was already taken, so I actually have SE #78.

#317 4 years ago

#806 SE new order

#318 4 years ago

#487 Smaug Special Edition in Kansas.

#319 4 years ago
Quoted from luckymoey:

#806 SE new order

Welcome to Middle Earth!

#320 4 years ago

#661 SE in Virginia

#321 4 years ago
Quoted from PinballRulez:

I thought we had until Dec 31... I prepaid in full but I don't remember getting any direct email from JJP about it.

#322 4 years ago

I switched to SE but don't know my number, guess one of the first .... But noone knows currently how many SE's will be build at the end. Can I decide that I will have number 0007 of unknown or 102888 of unknown
I guess SE will not have any number, or?

#323 4 years ago
Quoted from kidvid:

I think that existing orders must decide by November 30th and new orders will be accepted until December 31st. You might want to verify that with Jen.

The way I understand it, you can select any number that is not already taken. The plaque will then display that number. It will not be in the format xxxx of yyyy. Only the LE will be in that format.

Greetings All,

#765 LE in New Jersey here...

#326 4 years ago

I switched to the SE. I like the cabinet art better.

#327 4 years ago

When is the release date? Never though of asking when I pre-ordered.

#328 4 years ago
Quoted from FightNightFZ:

Late December to early January.

#329 4 years ago

I switched THLE #859 to THSE #859 a few weeks ago.

#330 4 years ago

SE #491 coming to MN. (Kingpin)

#331 4 years ago

I pre-ordered an LE from FUN! in Mesquite, TX back in 1Q14, but did not ask about the number. Both the LE and SE look great. That said, I think the LE art better reflects the overall theme of the movies by highlighting more of the characters. Since there are only cosmetic differences between the two, I will be staying with the LE. It's nice to have the choice.
