From memory the date has only been moved once. It was originally announced for a release on May 4th iirc but was then put back to June 1st. It was late May-Early June while Tolkien was recuperating that Edith danced for him in the wood (Hammond. Scull Chronology pp.100-01) and also he was passed fit on the 1st June 1917 so it being released around 29th May - 1st June 2017 is I would think a more fitting date than Star Wars day

I'd be surprised if it doesn't end up being Chinese, to be honest. Hopefully if it is, some lessons were learned from Kullervo.

I swear I not intend nitpicking, I zoomed in only to see the detail of the motif. But it looks like the "curve" of the slipcase in once again more angular than rounded; which leads me to think this is another China made "deluxe" edition.

It did get pushed back... twice - first from March to April, and now to June.

Edit: It may have been April to May originally. Now I think I'm going crazy

Pretty sure I read somewhere recently that the date got pushed back, which is probably why you had April in your head.
