Finally got my Deluxe B&L today after my original order apparently got lost in transit and the seller (Speedy Hen) being out of stock for a long while. Has the slipcase height been mentioned here? There's an 1/8 inch gap above the book which is quite a lot more than any other in the series. The first 10 volumes in their slipcases are more or less level as they sit on the shelf, but B&L stands noticeably taller. It's a small thing, sure, and I'm sure glad they went back to L.E.G.O. for this one. I just wish HC would take a bit more pride in its design and consistency. They fix one thing only to mess up another.


The slipcase on my copy is the same height as all the other books (1st prints), which are actually all very uniform. The gap between the top of the book and the slipcase is about the same as LoTR. Some of the others have smaller gaps, or like FoA and Kullervo, no real gap.

Thanks for sharing the old thread... looks like I have the larger variant. Didn't realize I'd have to find another one of those sets!



What country did you acquire your larger variant in?
