Lol the deluxe edition is already listed as #1 besteller on Amazon in rock. Before it has even been announced. That gotta be some kind of record.

Kind of like the Nice Boys level imo. He could handle that and it would sound awesome I think. 

Yeah, that might be all right :)

I've got to say... that box set looks pretty awesome. Not $650 awesome, at least not for me, but there's some nice stuff in there.

Personally, I wouldn't need/be able to use about half of the stuff. Can't play vinyl or blu-ray, and I am not too keen on the artwork or the rings. But the CDs, USB stick, photo book, picture prints, posters and the banner are nice. Eh, I am probably the only one who likes silly things like the coin as well. :lol:They can keep the tattoos, the turntable mat and the micro fibre cloth. :lol:

I'll see what smaller editions they have available and ponder the content vs cost. If the $180 version is indeed just 4 CDs, the book and the blu-ray, that'd be rather expensive. I'd put that at $100 tops.

Still looking forward to the announcement, to see what options they have available and if there's anything more to this whole promotion. Like, I wonder what's with the toy trucks Fernando posted...

The forum would probably crash like it did around the Troubadour/Vegas shows

As far as I can tell, the box we saw in the video is the one priced at $179.

Hmm, if it's just a 2-disc version before a $180 boxset that'd be disappointing; makes me expect Live Like a Suicide & the B-Sides compilation to be packaged separately.

If there is a more expensive locked n loaded version I'd like to see that just contain the vinyls as extras, and the $180 version have everything else.

The items that are listed under Super Deluxe on the video are the 4 CDs, the Blu-Ray and the book. So maybe it's without the vinyls?

But then again, the price difference between AFD Deluxe $19.98 (2 CDs) and AFD Super Deluxe ($179.98) is too big for just being about 2 more CDs, a Blu-Ray and the book. Or maybe it will have the memorabilia/gadgets too but not the vinyls?

I’m pretty underwhelmed to be honest.

After years of cash grab touring, then a cash grab reunion tour, we now got a cash grab on the back catelogue.

Ill went to the shows, and I’ll still buy this ..... But....  It all just feels very corporate

I don't even have an issue with the product itself.  It actually looks pretty badass, and any die hard fan would obviously love to have one.

What I have an issue with is setting up a dedicated website with a fucking countdown clock and way markers you need to active GPS on your phone for and shit to follow.... all for a fucking box set.

This band KILLED it with how they handled the Troubadour show.  Having a super secret location you needed to be at to score insanely limited tickets to their 1st show back together at a small club they cut their teeth in, and handing out limited edition collectors versions of the tickets to the crowd as they stood in line to get in.  Fucking badass.  I couldn't have loved that any more.

Outside of the Vegas shows afterwards, which were also amazing, I basically loathe how this band has handled everything since.

I disagree. In fact I think this marketing campaign is pretty brilliant. I have 2 issues though. 

1. For a normal band that has released an album in the past 2 or even 5 years, this would make sense. However, because GnR releases are less common than bigfoot sightings you'd sort of expect this to be for a new album rather than a re-issue. That's a classic case of GnR being it's own worst enemy. If they actually had put out an album recently, people would all agree this is brilliant. Now they're divided. 

2. The product itself and it's pricing. It's not just a GnR thing. Recently Pink Floyd did it too. I think 600+ is absolutely ridiculous. I'm wondering what the "regular" releases will be and how they'll be priced. So I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now. But for a release this widely marketed, you need a more accessable product at a more accessable price.
