So, has any more been said about the upcoming prepainted Collector's edition of this game? Like when it will eventually become available? In half a year? A year?

Will it be a special online order, or something you can order from your local gamestores? And, most importantly, what is its final price supposed to be? Anyone?

Essen 2008. In a wooden box.

That's all I could find.

Since many gamers will have died between the time it was first promised for release and Essen 2008, the wooden box seems somewhat appropriate.

Stay humourous people and don't forget the promised price of not to exceed $250.00.

Thanks for the replies!

Wooooo... At least 250 smackers? I may have to start saving up to afford it.

So... exactly what will this collectors edition contain? Painted figures I thought I read somewhere? Anything else?

Word is that each copy will contain both an actual living hobbit and a (lesser) ring of power.

The collector's does have the expansion stuff in it, right?

As far as I'm aware, little or nothing has been 'officially' confirmed with regard to content.

Twilight of the Third Age (the main game expansion), yes; Battles of the Third Age (the operational games), no.

I'd prefer another expansion than a Collector's Edition, especially if it just comes with everything I already have.

To be precise, the hobbit was alive at packaging time.
