I've got mine and have started scanning it in. (They won't be the best scans in the world --but you'll get to see what's in it, right? xD;) There really isn't a whole lot of new stuff, the image with Roy and Riza IS in it! I looked through it 3 times and must have skimmed over it...It has a lot of the calendar images and volume covers. There's about two pages of a "cow-shed" diary type thing at the end of the book.
I'll update this post with an album when I've finished. I may have to take a break in between to pick up another package, though. I was expecting another one besides this, and while this got past customs free of charge...I just got a notice to say the other didn't!! xDxD So I'll be going to pick that up and pay for it soon. (Just letting people know in case they notice a stop in updates LOL)
ETA: Done...Although, I didn't scan the pictures that spanned across two pages --except one, which was the one of Ed and Al mentioned above -- this is because they're really awkwardly placed in the book and therefore they were difficult to scan (without totally wrecking my book...which I don't really want to do....) >< I'm really sorry about that. Luckily, the one of Ed and Al was near the end, so the spine of the book was flatter. I'm really sorry about this, but I assure you that there was nothing new on these pages --they were images such as the covers for volume 23 and 13 etc and some other colour pages that have popped up now and then. I will go back at some point and try to get a decent scan of them, though.
Also, sorry for the mix up at first...I seriously didn't see the picture of Roy and Riza until I came to scanning it, so I thought it wasn't in the book to begin with! So I apologise if I almost gave members/guests who are Royai fans a scare! xD
