Full Throttle W/HB?

I can't weight them because I don't have a scale :( Impossible (at least for me) to "weight / compare with hand". Of course there is no hint book for Full Throttle but in this case hint book could mean Official Player's Guide. Usually if there is something extra included there is a sticker saying "now with XXX or includes XXX" right?

Did you notice that the other Full Throttle is the Standard Edition and the other is Limited Edition and that "W/HB" is on the Standard Edition. I was thinking maybe that "W" in the "W/HB" means without something instead of with something? How about without The Mini Official Player's Guide? Do you have this "W/HB" sticker in your Standard Edition with ComputerLife sticker?

There is also a release of Full Throttle with the Strategy Guide wrapped with the box, similar to Curse of Monkey Island and maybe for The Dig also. I dont remember if the box was shrinkwrapped under the outer plastic that held the box and Strategy Guide togeter. Could this one be that, with the Strategy Guide already removed?

When you hold it up and rotate do you hear the CD case move around inside?
Yes I think I hear it moving. Could also be something else that is moving inside. So might be that here is no white cardboard tray included and jewel case is free inside the box?

Everything looks so "intact" and I don't think that anything is removed from this package.

Thank you for the thoughts. Too bad I can't open the game :/

I have sold this W/HB copy but I believe the best answer is that it came with official hint book / Official Player's Guide.

This is old thread but I just found it and because I now own sealed Full Throttle + Official Strategy Guide box, I decided to post a picture and share some thoughts.

My box has the same "The Best of Everything Computer Life" sticker and the same "upper bar code" 1076012 like it was in Tseki`s box, so it might very well be an original FT + Strategy Guide package box, and it`s now missing the Strategy Guide.

I only wonder why Tseki`s box was still sealed... It seems to me that there is only one shrink wrapping around the game box and the strategy guide. If I remove the guide, the game will also lose the plastic :confused:

Yep, I have pretty accurate kitchen scale, so the result should be pretty reliable.

Can we compare our scales some other ways? My CIB FT box (in the picture) weighs 328 g.

Box + inner cd-tray + cd weighs 229 g
My box contains The Adventurer #10 = 58 g
The Mini Official Player`s Guide = 29 g
and the rest of the paperwork is 14 g, so the end result is 330 g this way, when I`m weighing them separately.

I hear cd-case moving in my box so it doesn`t seem to contain cd-tray.

My box has been in the hands of well known LucasArts collectors before me and the shrink wrapping is clean and perfect in every way so I`m pretty sure my box is original factory sealed, not rewrapped and it should contain all the original content. You have to ask the previous owner(s) or we need more W/HB copies to compare with :)
