Yes, the two cards in the new boxed set are only available by buying
the new edition... the only way we ourselves can get our hands on Sarah
or 1945-D is by opening up one of the new editions of the game.

But you can get all the really exciting new cards that you want to
expand your timeline with an inexpensive $3 expansion pack without
buying the new boxed set!  We released these cards as an expansion
pack instead of folding them into the new edition of the game so that
Chrononauts fans could upgrade their decks without having to buy the
whole game again.

If you get the new box, to fill out your collection of new boxes,
you are rewarded with a new dinosaur - if you just want the new
cards, all the important ones are available in a little $3 expansion
pack.  We hope this works out well for most people - and at the
very least you know we thought about it and did our best!

I agree, the two cards are non-vital to the game, only a true enthusiast
would really want them. I'm actually more excited about the new box
itself, it will stack nicely with all the other upgraded new boxes for
the other games in the looney labs collection. I really hope they update
EAC into a new box also. The way I see it, I'm going to have one deck
shuffled for ubernauts and the other box for when I am in the mood to
play a light game of chrononauts. 

Plus if it were a company like Milton Bradly or Nintendo, I'd see them as
money hungry pigs trying to suck my money out of my pocket. But, this is
our neighborhood friend Andy Looney who makes us fun games! I always
support my mom and pop store.

Regarding the idea of "it's hard to rationalize getting a new set":

Of course it isn't!
 - I'm ordering a new set for myself, meaning I get all the cool new
 - The old set is a gift to a friend, who gets a copy of the game of
their own (slight wear, eh...).
 - And Looney Labs gets a cash reward for putting out new Chrononauts
stuff - filling the double duty of rewarding a company I like, and
sending a message to focus on Chrononauts more.  We have enough Fluxx
varieties already!
