Monkey Island Anthology deliveries delayed
The Monkey Island Anthology boxset from Limited Run Games that was available early this year has now been delayed from Q2 2021 to Q4 2021. If you managed to pre-order it don't expect it to arrive anytime soon.
The boxset includes a behind the scenes book with more than 160 pages, the code wheels from Monkey Island 1 and 2, a disk 22 floppy diskette, a resin Murray candle holder, enamel pins and much more. The pre-orders were available from December 4th, 2020 to January 31 st, 2021. If you missed it your only chance now is buying it on eBay or a similar site once it gets delivered, but expect a hefty price tag.
Update (June 9, 2021): Limited Run Games just sent an e-mail with the production status. According to them all items are now completed except two:
"All we’re waiting on now is final approval for the completed 160+ page anniversary book and the hand-signed certificate of authenticity by series creator Ron Gilbert. That’s right, hand-signed! There are roughly 10,000 of these for Ron to sign. That’s a lot of certificates to get through for one person, so we’re sending Ron our energy!"
Looks like Ron has a lot of signing to do!
