Lol, did critics agree on the official timeline or are they still nerding over discrepancies?

Eh, maybe I'll pick this up if it shows up in my quick picks. Would make a good coffee table book.

Not bad, almost $10 off MSRP. I think I'll get some Amazon credit via Bing, then pre-order.

I have the Japanese one too and am wondering if I should get this one. I can read the translations online but I'm more or less wondering about the quality- not to knock on Dark Horse, but I'm just wondering as to how the Japanese version will compare to the US version.

And I hope that's no the cover. The Japanese version is so much classier.

Does it look as amazing as most Zelda fans would imagine?

I had no idea they were making this. I think I'm going to have to get this. Zelda fan + artbook fan seems like a win.

Does anyone know if Amazon charges for pre-orders upon placing the order or do they wait until the product ships?
