I have both Capcom Illustrations and Capcom Design Works Early Days. They are very similar in content... very similar. CDW seems to have a bit more exclusive stuff compared to CI. For instance... Strider, Ghosts & Goblins, Cyberbots, Trojan and some other classic arcade games have additional pieces added to CDW, while Breath of Fire and Mega Man X illustrations were added as well.
There are some new illustrations added to the first set of pages on CDW, like a Shinkiro illustration of Forgotten Worlds and a Kinu Nishimura picture featuring red-haired SF1 Ryu, Chun-Li and Mega Man. Also, CI does have a few illustrations that are bigger in size compared to CDW, since the layout of CDW seems to be a bit more compact in terms of having more artworks on one page.
CI's exclusive content is scant, but it does have a few Alien Vs. Predator and Cadillacs Vs. Dinosaurs artworks. It may be due to licensing that these didn't make the newer CDW, although they were able to use some artworks based on Marvel games, like Marvel Super Heroes or The Punisher.
I didn't know CI was fetching 150 bones on eBay. Not selling mine, but it's a bit shocking to hear that. But quite honestly, if you have either CDW or CI... either one would be sufficient to have.
And no, I don't think the SF The Animated Movie book is in print anymore. I'd be surprised if it was.
