I wonder if HC will make more boxes - I wouldn't be surprised considering the small initial amount (not to mention the 10 at least that were damaged according to Beren). After all, the 4-volume set was originally limited to 500 but then they made more (another 500?). Did anyone else snatch one (or 3) up on Amazon.uk for £135?

I'm glad I didn't purchase this set (and I did consider it). Essentially it is a set of Chinese-printed reprints in a slipcase that really differs only in size to the 4 volume set. If HC could be trusted to only stick to the 100 sets, it would be one thing, but they will quite probably just churn out a whole lot more slipcases at some point. For anyone who hasn't already got the 4 volume set (or the books individually), I can see the attraction, but otherwise, these seem to be fairly missable.
