Now that 2nd edition has been out, when is the upgrade kit/card box coming out? Or has it already and I just missed it?

I have a pre-order of several games that is being held up by the upgrade kit as well. Hopefully it ships to me next week, but I don't have any inside information to substantiate that hope....

I heard end of Jan / early Feb from one online retailer. I ended up ordered the 90 micron sleeves from Mayday Games. Apparently the sleeves in the can will be those anyways, so I don't mind not getting the can.

I preordered it through www.milanspiele.de and received the kit some weeks ago.

Yeah, I didn't say so in my original post, but it's holding up MY game order as well! This sucks.

It arrived in the UK a week or two ago. The usual pattern of timing suggests another week or two longer and you guys in the US should have received it too.

Hmm, sounds like coolstuffinc got their big shipment of War of the Ring copies in, but it doesn't look like they got the tins yet. Still lists them as pre-order, and my own order hasn't updated at all yet.

Arrgh...patiencepatiencepatiencepatience...

Good to know they're getting into stores. Given that the shipment was in the US before Christmas, they took quite longer than we expected! Any comment by the buyers, BTW?

The kit looks allright to me though I prefer the smaller cards as inserted in the 1st edition game. But the cards are great, the sleeves are good and the tin really shines. All in all I'm pleased with the purchase.

Edit: typo.
