I would say calling this "an official proof" is an overstatement. Not to say this theory cannot prove valid, but as ZanzibarLand said perhaps the designers just do not want to pump up the attack of Gandalf. With the Hobbit ally version you would get a 6 attack character who does not commit to quest, which is massive. Maybe it is just that. 

 

This is exactly what I was thinking.


"To each of us falls a task. And all the Emperor requires of us Guardsmen is that we stand in line, and we die fighting. It is what we do best: we die standing."

I don't think it is "official proof" either. But, I think it is more likely we will eventually get him as a hero than not.

Any other cases of changes made on cards between preview and print? Accidental or deliberate. At what stage is play testing done?

The only one I know of is Legacy of Numenor shifting from Doomed 3 on the preview to Doomed 4 on the release. But this is a balance change, not a typo fix.

Take a look at Gandalf on top of the page, here's the cost "6".

Funny enough, there is two discard piles on this picture.

I must have a different image to you. Mine is the core set box art. I'm from Australia so that's a probably explanation.

Gandalf should have been 6 - he's significantly better than the 6 cost cards :P
