> I spent all that money on the originals, and now I am told that it will be even better. It seems rather 'haha! sucker!' to me.

> Sorry you feel that way, but since 2004 when the Handbooks started, there was no idea knowing something like this would be done and it was definatly not the intent. The Handbooks have been doing well enough, that each year we are given a little more room to work with a little at a time and during a time they were collecting the original, Deluxe and Master Editions as Essentials, it only seemed to be the next step.

I know it was not intentional, just kinda sucks to repay for material I already have. The extras sound nice, and being HC would be fantastic. However, as stated else where, won't some of the stuff be outdated when the final book comes out? Atleast with the normal issues, we got the occasional update. I know that the books can never be up-to-date, and I will likely end up getting them, just gotta trick myself into knowing it is worth it.

It isn't the exact same material due to updates, more images and everything else put into each Handbook.

Handbooks are always printed up to date \:\-\) . It is just that the month after its release, it becomes outdated due to a character being used the next month/issue. We write entries to match the release date of the new issues released that same month, unless it is released after the Handbook as we do our best to not spoil anything. Unfortunatly on veryfew occations due to changes in shipping, we mention spoilers.

Have a Nice Day!
