Do the books themselves have new copyright statements or anything Stu? The original set had first impressions (2002) of the standard hardbacks, but the set was re-released in 2011 according to HarperCollins. I don't know if you have the original set, is the slipcase (or anything else) exactly the same? What impressions are in your set?
The slipcases are not absolutely identical. It is very similar, but the reprint box is thinner, particularly on the top/bottom. It really isn't robust enough for three heavy books, in my opinion.
Impressions are 6,5 and 5. No new copyright statement (bears the original 2002).
I wouldn't recommend anyone who has the original bothering to get the reprint, but it is an adequate substitute for someone who hasn't got the earlier one. I think I paid AUD $160 shipped from Book Depository when the reprint was released, so same ballpark price to the eBay one.
