Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear Collector's Editions Production Complete

The saga of the collector's edition of Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear has been something of a troubled journey, seemingly not unlike those of the physical items used as rewards for many crowdfunding campaigns. Thankfully, it seems close to an end now, with the developers announcing that all items are ready and that they are now being sent to the United States to prepare them for shipping.

In practice, this means that hopefully a shipping date should be announced soon:

Today a cargo plane laden with magically sealed shipping crates is hurtling through the skies of the Pacific. In it, klaxons blare and warning lights blink from every direction as brave men and women race to and fro. The captain screams over the whine of engines pushed beyond their limits: "We must deliver these maps and dice to Beamdog's distributor!"

Meanwhile, at an airport on the west coast of the United States, workers cast lots to determine who will have the honor of unloading the plane when it lands. Tears well in the eyes of those that are eliminated.

Once the plane arrives and is checked over for itinerant snakes, the containers will be unloaded and we can begin the next phase of this project. Each phase will take some time to complete, but here's where we stand:
  1. Construction: Complete!
  2. Shipping: Pending!
  3. Customs
  4. Assembly
  5. Delivery! To you, the person reading this!
Phase 4 will take the longest, but once it gets started we can announce shipping dates.
