I'm not crazy enough to buy them, but the photos are stunning. Any other japanese edition I've seen on ebay is magnificent as well. They really LOVE it.

Bonus points for including a Death of Enjolras AND Gavroche photo.

Ah, I have the 2007 one, but in red! I keep meaning to do scans from it, but haven't yet. Full headshots of every performer in costume, totally awesome.

Indeed they are epic. They cost about 1,500 JPY new and are updated each season. I will usually buy one each season that I see the show here.
(actually twice each season because the first edition will have rehearsal / past production pictures and the second edition will have the up to date stage photos).

Incidentally, these can easily be found at used bookstores here in Japan for low prices (say 100-300 JPY). I've been able to find the programs that I failed to buy in the past (due to being cheap or poor) eventually used for a very reasonable price.
