The lack of inclusion of a sample case is also a minor issue.
Just a quick comment on this - a full-size sample case is included in the Starter Set.
Which had not hit my inbox when I wrote that. THe first email was, for whatever reason, just the corebook preview. The email with both wasn't received until over a week later, despite the same send date. (I had checked 5 minutes before it arrived due to being waiting for a confirm on an unrelated situation, and was checking and rechecking... so I know it hadn't arrived prior and been missed.)
