Annoyingly I prefer this slip but with the booklet art from the other version. But instead it’s repeated 3 times here
The slipcover over the slipbox is the same as with The Warriors US set. Seems a bit redundant, but whatever; suppose the point about no ratings logo on the slipbox is a good point.

Got mine delivered to the US today in a brown Zavvi-type mailer. Not the greatest packaging, but appears to be in mint condition. I’ll open it when I get home later tonight.
