Re-prints of the 1ed Books

As everyone should have heard by now WoTC is re-releasing the 1st Ed. core books on 4/17/12. Here was their official blurb at the time;

 In 1974, the world changed forever when Gary Gygax introduced the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. The legacy of his innovative ideas and the extensive reach of his powerful influence can be seen in virtually every facet of gaming today. To help honor his work and his memory, we created limited-edition reprints of the original 1st Edition core rulebooks: the Monster Manual, Player's Handbook, and Dungeon Master's Guide. These premium versions of the original AD&D rulebooks have been lovingly reprinted with the original art and content, but feature an attractive new cover design commemorating this re-release. Available in limited quantities as a hobby channel exclusive in North America. Your purchase of this monumental book helps support the Gygax Memorial Fund—established to immortalize the “Father of Roleplaying Games” with a memorial statue in Lake Geneva, WI.

Product Release list

Personally, I am looking forward to these and will be getting the full set. For several reasons;
  • to support the Gygax Memorial
  • to "vote" for 1st Ed. with WoTC
  • to get fresh copies of these books (I have several, but they are all old and worn from having been used for so long)
