I'm doing some research on various Chaosium items, and I'm working on Elfquest right now.  If anyone has a copy of the box set, and can help me compare notes, please drop me a PM.

Thanks!

I used to have both, but currently only have the small-picture covers.  I'd be willing to help out, too.

(Heh.  Just took a peek in the box and realized that the 1983 Chaosium catalog is still in there!)

Well, there you go.  Apparently there are two printings.  I had two images I grabbed from somewhere, and was trying to match one up with a set I just got and was failing.

So are the small pictures on the cover for the first printing?  What are the other differences?  Presumably different dice and the errata, but anything else?

Same box. Small cover art is the 1st print, 1984. The 2nd print (big cover art) is from 1986. I didn't look through it to see if there is really some differences, but it seems to be as there is a simplified combat sheet.

Here is a pic of both:
