What's the impression status of the slipcased HoME Deluxe do you think? Is it known to have been reprinted?

I have bought one, so will let you know, but suspect that this price will no longer be available by the time I get the set.

Don't know what impression it is myself.

Were the second batch of sets issued as a first printing? (after the manufacturing problems with the first sets)

Price lasts until midnight tonight GMT (and only 8 left in stock as of now).

Not sure how accurate their stock count is. I just checked it a few minutes ago and is said there was only 1 copy left. Right now it's at 17.

The second batch of sets (800 copies) were indeed issued as a first printing. No idea if there has been a subsequent reprint, but I doubt it -- it can't be that popular.

This seems like a fair price for it, to be honest. I paid about £120 including shipping to NZ for the LEGO version. That still felt a bit too much for it.

Thanks for the info Stu.

I purchased one from the first batch (still in shrinkwrap - and assume it has the manufacturing flaws).

Purchased one from the current £79.99 set today - would be nice if it was still a first printing - here's hoping!

Unwin Hyman / Guild red-sun hobbit. The only UH wrapper that has the red sun and no stripe. Was not ever used on any UH books, despite having Unwin Hyman on the spine, but was used on the 1988 Guild variant. All copies are price-clipped (presumably was printed with UHs price before being repurposed as a Guild wrapper).

^ Edit: Fairly obvious fake when looked at without sleep in eyes, and not just thumbnail. Appears there is another Alan Formhals, but this time in Canada... Felt tip pen is the giveaway
