If the change of Smaug was at the Film end of things, then it's more plausible. GW has a license that requires slavish sticking to the details as it's a cheap license. They'd be getting compensation of some description though if that's the case.
It's still unlikely though.
A more likely scenario revolves around the fact that GW can't release pics of Smaug until the film is out. The film doesn't come out until Dec 15th? So it doesn't match the WD release dates, and releasing a product you can't show pics of is somewhat stupid. The Jan WD comes out mid-Dec though, so they may have had to swap the issues to cover this. If that's the case though, I'd imagine several heads are roling as that's a *stupid* mistake to make
