You’ve probably already heard about this, but I need something for a lazy post, so here we go:
Apparently WotC is going to release a special “collectors” reprint of Original D&D, including fancy dice and a wood box. Here’s the link. I think the photo shown is just a mock up for promotional purposes and probably not representative of the final product. At least, I hope it’s not because $150 is an outrageous sum for what’s shown there. If this came out a couple of months from now, I’d be calling it an April Fool’s joke.
While it’s exciting that WotC is doing an OD&D reprint, this particular product feels more like OSR-nostalgia exploitation. Unfortunately, there are probably a lot of people who’ll pay that ridiculous price anyways, so I guess I can’t fault Wizards for getting their marketing right. Hopefully they’ll also release more reasonably priced PDFs at some point.
