Just to clarify, these are exactly the same discs that were in Indicator's Hammer Volume 1: Fear Warning (extras and all), but given separate releases now that the box set has sold out.

They're standard editions, which means that they don't have a booklet or a reversible sleeve, and they come in an Amaray instead of a Scanavo case.
