Retro Foreign: British Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars #1 and 2

The only difference between the U.K. and U.S. version of a Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars treasury is the price on the cover is in pence instead of dollars.  It is likely these were printed on the same press as the U.S. editions, like some of the other Marvel pence comics, including Star Wars #2 - 5.

Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars #1a - Marvel Comics, England (August 1977?)
Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars #1b - Marvel Comics, England (December 1977?)
It took me a while to add these two issues to my collection because I was holding out for nice copies.  They pop up with some regularity on eBay and prices, like their U.S. counterparts, are all over the place.
