AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

Recommended Posts

If they're discounting it this deeply on Halloween for no reason whatsoever, I feel super confident I'll get one for $500 or less by Black Friday. 

I'd bite at 500, maybe even 600. This is still a little too high though.

But yeah, there is now way they sold anywhere close to 10,000. I doubt they have even sold half.

$300 off the normal price!!!  Act now because this sale ends at midnight Pacific time.  But wait there's more!  If you order it from one of the websites below you can add a GNR Canada hockey jersey (two design options from the pop-up event), a GNR jean jacket (from the pop-up event), or a limited edition (only 100 made) GNR vinyl turntable for free! :slash::wow::axl:

Act now!  :headbang::heart::o

Love all you do for the community brother, but I'm good to wait for the inevitable drop to $500

"Free shipping on this product in the UK and Europe"

Why charge a fucking 120,30 euros for delivery to the netherlands?!

655 euro is doable, but 775,60 is just fucking insane

What a fucking joke

never heard about the turntable until now...

ProJect makes some great turntables, but that's like double the price of the same model without the GNR logo on it.

So Australia is now $999 still overpriced for us minions. 

I got a family to feed instead and bills to pay. $200 would be a fair price.

Yeah, but at least with the exchange rate it's cheaper than other regions like the UK.

Still not buying it, though :P Just paid $12 for a month of Apple Music, first time I've paid for music in a couple of years (been using Spotify Free for the most part).

Am I reading this right? Are they really trying to say that the turntable is $749? :lol: Fuck me, that's a bigger load of shit than the Locked and Loaded box set.

Furthermore, what it's really saying is that they can still make a profit on a $1200 box set AND a $749 turntable by selling them both together for $899. So basically a reduction of $1050 and they're STILL making a profit on both items. If that doesn't show just how much of a rip off this is then I don't know what will.

I am so glad I didn't fall for the hype. Once a few weeks wore off I was good lol. Now I don't even want it at the discount price, but I do kind of want the new Metallica box set lol. This is going to have to come down more.

It really is a nice box set. The wooden box itself is very well made. With everything inside, it weighs about 40 lbs.

If we weren't living in an era where music is easy to find and download illegally, I think there'd be more of these sold, even at the $999 price tag. Yeah, there's more that could have been added that would help justify the price. As is, I think it's worth about $599, but I jumped on it when it was first made available. The band's music has carried me through a lot of crap in my life, and I wanted something special to serve as a reminder of that.

That's the thing; I feel like it's only over priced BECAUSE we live in the era of downloads. They have to make money somehow, so they've overpriced the set that way they make as much as they would have if it were reasonably priced back when people bought music en masse.

oh look, after this $300 discount they moved the "regular" price down to $799, I am guessing those of you want this thing for $400-$500 will have it in the near future

Nice. That makes it perfect for them to do a "$300 off for Black Friday!" sale and it will be the $500 I wanted to pat in the first place.

Right, but the GNR design is limited to only 100.  Not saying that does or does not justify the price, just wan't sure if you saw that or not.

I hear you there.  But the turntable is limited to only 100.  But yes, still could be construed as overpriced.  I wish I had been involved with all this more than just lending items in my collection.  Perhaps next time!

Agreed, the box itself is actually pretty amazing quality, I was quite surprised.  I also wish they had not included some things, and included other stuff.  Still satisfied overall!

I got to see one in person at my local CD/record store chain and they were asking $1099 (Canadian) for it. Spoiler alert: it looks cheap and not worth even half that.

Yeah but the "design" basically consists of a couple of GnR logos on a standard turntable by the looks of it. 

Just shows utter contempt for the fans by price gouging to this extent IMO.

All I can say is "I told all of you so!" haha

They still need to drop another $300 off for me to order it though. 

I am 100% certain that will happen though, so I'm good to keep waiting. 

:)

You called it.  I honestly didn't think they would drop it that much.

Heck, if they get down to $500 ish I might bite.:ph34r:
