Reprints - will they ever get “off the boat”?

Recommended Posts

Anxiously awaiting reprints and looking at the upcoming page there are expansions that have been showing on the boat for months (since 12/1) , some longer (10/4, really?)  Will these ever make it off the boat?  Has the boat sunk?

That makes some sense, I have been patiently waiting for miniaturemarket to get it in.  Chinese New Year will end around March 2nd perhaps?  Hopefully will be seeing some stock in the stores mid to late March...

Hrm, I wonder why MM isn’t getting it in stock yet...

I'm assuming MM = miniature market.

 

May be in stock at FFG and shipping to other sellers right now if the sellers put in an order. I'm only guessing FFG has some kind of warehouse hub if that is accurate.

I suspect I know what your reply is, but I'll ask anyway: Why don't you buy from a nearby game/hobby shop and support a local business?

They don’t carry LotR LCG any longer.

But can't they just order product for you specifically? I mean, they probably carry other FFG/Asmodee products; it should be trivial to add a pack of cards to that order, especially if they know that the one pack is going to be sold.

Miniature Market sent me a message last Friday saying that a bunch of the Saga expansions that I had marked "Notify me when in stock" were in stock.  I almost waited to long to place the order.  They sold out quick.  Hopefully more will be back in stock soon so that the game can continue to grow with new players and FFG sees that people are scrambling to get product and will reply with a greater level of re-print and new expansion development.

yeah, I had been waiting for Ringmaker too and noticed the same thing back in mid-2017. I'm not sure how reliable the "upcoming" page is or if some of the status updates just fell through the cracks. Either way, I started using the "notify me when back in stock" at Coolstuffinc to determine when stuff comes in.  I got the Ringmaker cycle in 2017 even though the status "on the boat" has never changed.

I think my first post got their attention about Celebrimbor's Secret, which is what I have been waiting for, and they made the change from 'on the boat' to 'at the printer', to hopefully be more accurate, even if it does mean now waiting even longer. My wish is that they would understand how high the demand is and maybe up their printing quota to meet the demands. I also agree that putting in for email notification would seem to be the way to go.

 

Humbly,

FFG employees don't usually read the forums. I think it might even be a rule. Sorry to burst your bubble.
