The thought of this set being issued in the ongoing Deluxe format did cross my mind. Each of the 10 releases so far have been individually slipcased and a unique color (some of the color choices have baffled me and the upcoming B&L looks to be quite similar to The Hobbit). I hope that if these volumes constitute the 12th, 13th, and 14th books in the series, they will follow suit. They could be boxed like the sets gathering the first 4 and 5 books of the series.

Stu has asked HarperCollins about this as a new edition, let us see what they reply with?

Considering that the RRP of the deluxe edition of LotR is currently £100 and that each of the three volumes of HoME is comparable in "size", I think that it might be possible that this boxed set is going to be offered in the same format. That would fit more the price of £250.
Not that it would be worth it anyway, at least imho.

This was on BBC Radio 4 this morning.

Apart from the fact that the BBC, could stay in Britain to see Tolkien's Middle earth(sic), I thought it was quite an interesting programme, and good luck to them on continuing to promote "Hobbiton".

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08ksdjq

Nancy Nicolson travels to Middle Earth(sic) to discover how a remote corner of a 1250-acre New Zealand sheep station became one of the most famous pieces of farmland in the world.
When location scouts settled on the Alexander family farm near Matamata, just south of Auckland, as the location for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, it changed the fortunes of the traditional sheep unit which is run by two brothers.
Now Craig Alexander continues to run the sheep enterprise while his brother Russell manages Hobbiton, a global tourist destination attracting 500,000 visitors a year.
Nancy learns about the economics that have driven New Zealand sheep farmers to become more efficient; hears how the army was employed to drive roads into remote land and visits some of the Hobbit holes.

Having said that, the normal boxset is already £180; I didn't realise it was that expensive, even if nobody buys it at full RRP.

Amazon thinks the new one is 400 pages.
