Considering they've just done hardback compilations of their movie comics that are near enough the same content as these "slipcase" versions I guess they have a large amount of unsold stock of the paperbacks?

And isn't subtitling a Prime fotonovel with "Animated" first needlessly confusing? I mean yeah, it's technically taken from something that was animated but it's also the name of a completely different part of the franchise...
