They were also reissued a few years ago in the 1990's, I think in thinner boxes but with the original artwork. I have one I bought stashed away in the basement somewhere. I decided I might as well get the reissue of the one of the four kits I was missing in my collection, but I'm sure all four kits were actually reissued.

Yes all 4 were reissued. I had a set of them that I got for very reasonable price at the time. Boxes were thin and stapled together, taped shut. Ended up selling them. Would love to have another set though!
