Default Starter Set/Introductory Set

Hoping someone can help me out with this.
The card list for the set has extra versions of the Heros listed as numbers 308-313, which is lists as being from the Introductory Set, rather than the Starter Sets.
What is the difference between the two sets, and is the Introductory set currently available?

(Card list I have been going by: http://www.munchkinccg.game/site-ccg..._checklist.pdf)

Thanks

Those are from the starters, as far as I can tell. There are alt-art versions in that you can pull in packs, but the ones with "H" rarity are the ones that are contained in the starters. (You could always double check this by looking at the number on the bottom of the Hero cards from the starters.)

I have just opened the three 2 Player starter decks, and the H card were 128 Dwarf Cleric, 163 Elf Thief etc.
Do some copies contain these and some contain 308-313?

The heroes in the introductory set are neither the Kovalic art heroes nor the ones in the Starters.

Oops. Well I guess that's why I suggested a double check. So what IS the Introductory set?

So one thing I noticed is that someone said the first print of starter sets come with boosters. I'm wondering if the introductory set will be the same as the starter set except without the booster. And with the hero card changed.

Given that this isn't the first time this question has been asked, maybe it's time to?

But soon is not NOW, I want it NOW :P.

I'm assuming it's some sort of "introductory set". But, how it differs form the starters I can't fathom, as the starters seem to have everything an "introductory set" would have for the game.

Maybe new form factor for big box retail?
