7 "mini LP" Cure CDs reissued in Japan

From CDJapan: "Japan-only thirtieth anniversary cardboard sleeve reissues from The Cure featuring the high-quality SHM-CD audio CD format (playable on standard CD players) and cardboard sleeve replica of the original UK E-style jacket artwork with inner bag. Part of a seven-album The Cure cardboard sleeve reissue series featuring the albums "Three Imaginary Boys," "Seventeen Seconds," "Faith," "Pornography," "The Top," "The Head on The Door," and "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me." Release date is Dec. 29th, 2011.
I'm guessing these are just reissues/restock of the ones released in 2008.
