Quoted from Pinball-Wiz:
From my understanding, the Premiums being made right now were somewhat of a surprise so I wouldn't blame your distributor. I was a day 1 order and one of the first at my dealer and originally they told me July. It was changed to October and it wasn't their choice. The small numbers of Premiums now being sent was not expected. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what I was told.
That being said, congrats to those getting the Premiums now!! I can't imagine how exciting it would be to think you're getting it in October only to find out you're getting it next week!!
That makes sense and also explains why those premium production shots had LEs mixed in with them. So I'll go with not many made then during this run...
