Yeah, I agree it seems a bit lazy. The only positive is that the pre-publication mockups for the original Quarter-bound leather version (2000) bore no resemblance at all to the final product. So there is precedent for the product turning out very different. I doubt they will sell a huge number, so I can see them not wanting to spend a giant amount, but just basic consistency with the current deluxe range doesn't seem a like a big ask, IMHO.


Can never resist tinkering...

Count me in too

Also, I'm wondering why the laziness with the motif on HC's part. Don't they have the rights to use Tolkien's art, images and motifs? There are so many beautiful ones; and seeing as these are mainly stories of the Elder Days, one would think they'd be spoiled for choice.

Indeed it can. Final render.

If they make this, I'll buy it.

Maybe.

Haha! Sometimes the urge to mock up fan versions of official products can be (understandably) irresistible.

I don't have any 3d tools, so this is just using perspective transforms of 2d stuff..

Anyway, better do some actual work so as to avoid getting fired....
