I ordered that edition from them aswell, 3£ more than just the game is worth it to secure a Elrond figure without chansing on a preorder from somewhere else. Seems this is the only place in europe offering Elrond expect for amazon.DE's ps3 version.
The pre order dlc will be on the marketplace in a month for people who really care x]

But in the end I did get a figure and the game, so that is awesome. My question now is do I open it or keep it sealed. I won't resell or anything, but I seem to keep figures in polybags for some reason. I have multiple TC-14s and the Hulk still in polybag and I will be getting Darth Maul soon enough.
As far as multiple Elronds, it isn't possible, at least here. They said they will give them out to anyone who buys the game, not just preorders and they wouldn't sell any individually. He also said they try to give them away to kids (because I guess adults can't like LEGO). And since I don't need two copies of the game, I might as well not worry about it. I don't need 2 anyway.

All I wanted was the minifg. It's funny how the minifig seems to be meaningless to the gamers at Gamestop, but of course, is the sole reason most of us are ordering the game. Now I have my own Second Age battle pack!

I find that the cape from the Crown Knight King (and also the Fantasy Era Good Wizard and the Vikings chess king) is a very similar color if not the same color as Elrond's tiny cape. Luckily I had an extra one and replaced it. Elrond looks much nobler with his long cape.

But I agree, they should just apologize instead of saying that it was never intended to have a long cape.

If you're not going to resell it, just open it. Elrond looks a damn sight better on display out of the bag.

I guess it can be more of an issue for people who bought the edition that includes Elrond than the people who got him for free with pre order.

My Elrond actually has dark green printing on the part of the torso that is dark blue on the polybag. So , Eomer's dark green cape from my second 9471 looks better on him that a long dark blue cape would have. And on my 2nd 9471, I switched minifig parts to have a generic Rohan horseman and Archer captain, giving me that extra dark green cape to use. I'll give that short dark blue cape on Thorin like many others suggested.
So, if you have two 9471s and plan to get all Hobbit sets, and have a Dark Green printed Elrond like I have, everything works out even better than if LEGO did give out a dark blue long cape.
Funny how we're arguing like little girls playing with their dolls and their accessories

Lucky for me I ordered a few months ago so I should be sweeet!
Release date has been pushed back to December 5 here in Aus.

SheepEater - That's weird that your Elrond has dark green printing on the torso. Mine definitely has dark blue near the shoulders and then dark green on the legs. It doesn't necessarily clash, but it seems like a big mish-mash of colors. And the tiny blue cape does look a bit funny on him, but it looks better than no cape at all for some reason. I'll probably end up just making a custom cape for him until LEGO decides to produce dark blue capes again. Any tips on materials for capes? Is it similar to the sail material? I'm sure I've read about it somewhere before, but I can't find it at the moment.
