That old chestnut has been thrown around for months and has about much accuracy as trying to launch a rocket to the moon from my ass. The "last minute" in regards to Hobbit Design for GW purposes would have been about 3 months ago due to production times and if it were true then every other toy company producing Hobbit minis would be in the same boat. As such WD would have been able to cover their issue without a panic. If you look at what happened last time companies (not GW) still released products even though they weren't in the first film (ref Legolas and Tauril figures).
