AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Based on how this thing rolled out and sold over the past year, they better really examine the value proposition of any UYI box set.  I bit at $499, but also snagged a Super Deluxe for a much higher price than it is now.  There is absolutely NO WAY I am buying anything day 1 for UYI box set, and probably not day 180 or 365 either.  This AFD box set sales process has been a trainwreck of epic proportions.

I just got the super deluxe. $40 is a solid price. I think that completed the L&L box Russ gave me aside from the vinyl! Looks like it fones with everything else which means...

I'm getting the temporary tattoos!

I was going to tag you in this post when I saw the $40 price for the SDE. I gave the SDE to a buddy at some point after I got the L&L Set so yeah, the $40 SDE should damn near complete your L&L Set.

I think it's 100% aside from the vinyl now! @Tom-Ass are you still interested? $40 is the best I've seen it go for, even used

I wasnt up close for that Vegas show, but that was definitely one of the most fun weekends of my life. Wish we could relive it!

I would go the ticket. I see the boxset coming down to 199.00 in less than 6 months and probably in time for xmas.

I highly doubt they are going to do a UYI boxset

Why not?? Who knew we would get the L&L box so anything is possible. Just make it similar to the MetallicA Deluxe boxes and you are good to go.

a UYI set needs to just be the two albums remastered (if the masters aren't destroyed) with another 2LP set of demos, live tracks etc and thats it. 6LPs and they can sell it for 99-150 bucks in a nice slip box like zeppelin, metallica etc. Hopefully they learned that tattoos, rings and metal guitar picks are fucking stupid by now.

$40 for the SDE is great.  Congrats to those who held out and grabbed it.

Yes $40 for the Super Deluxe is a good deal and if you use the code GNR10 on their official store it makes it a little bit cheaper.

I would like to see the two albums remastered, two/three demos of each song (preferably a few years apart wherever possible), a summer 1991 Blu-ray, a 1992 (not Tokyo) Blu-ray, a Skin N' Bones Blu-ray, and a compilation of various strong performances of individual songs. Various photographs and perhaps a book would be nice to go with it.

I think we can just forgot about the Perfect Crime documentary sadly.

I got one on Day One last year for about $100, and that's because I had a merchandise credit for about $60 for the store I picked it up at.

Bought two yesterday at the $40 price. Christmas gifts for my two oldest sons. Might buy another for my youngest son.

For once, Guns N' Roses are offering up something from their store at an unbeatable price.

Yeah ... I'm salty I copped the Super Deluxe at the original price, whatever it was (can't recall) for it to fall to $40 now. Reason being, as much as I loved it all, it basically got packed in the closet never to be seen again. Same would happen with Locked N' Loaded if I bought it. It's why I couldn't justify a grand. I know it'd end up tucked away somewhere taking up space.

Im surprised they didnt remaster lies and put it out on vinyl for the lies anniversary. I wouldnt have thought they would do the L and l boxset, so anything with them recognising their past is possible. The illusions era was massive put the band  through the stratosphre,  so something has to merched for the anniversary.

A remaster of Lies, with the exception of OIAM is actually part of LnL.

The poor sales and overwhelmingly negative reaction from fans to the L&L set.

I really am thinking about buying one I have spent more than $40 on alcohol in the last few days. I really just want the L&L box, but not until it is cheaper than it is now.

Both of these are now at the prices they should have been when they originally came out.

That is definitely quicker than the Nightrain packages ship.

Which is why they should ‘do it right’ this time. Not overpriced or laden with stuff most folk wouldn’t look at more than once. As I said, I have the four MetallicA boxes and they are absolutely spot-on. The only thing that they miss is the 5.1 disc that Appetite had.
