Has anyone tried switching Fernando off and then switching him on again?

Hopefully it will come with little plastic figures of all of the GN'R members past-and-present, all 700 of them. We can play little games where we run DJ Ashba over.  

I mean, if you want to buy a toy truck with 'guns n roses' printed on the side, then go for it. You'll probably never get laid ever again if you leave it around the house, but there we go.

Those bloody bastards. 

This bundle includes all the vinyl I bought the L&L box for at its date of release 😡

Sorry mate. Been patiently waiting for this day since they announced that stupid box. Plus you get a red AFD cassette and a whiskey glass within each bundle. Looks like mine are arriving Monday. The price is actually pretty reasonable. 

I’m honestly surprised this wasn’t a Record Store Day exclusive. Although they probably would make more $ selling direct to fan. 

By July they will probably start tearing the crosses off of the box and start selling those. That will be the final coffin

The boxset has clearly been an unmitigated disaster however you care to look at it, to have to resort to opening them all up and selling off the material separately. They charged an extortionate amount and built too many of the things.

I agree. The whole thing was so stupid, especially those ridiculous unboxing videos.

I am happy for all you guys who have been patient and made a good deal with the box after the priced dropped or with the current bundles.

I have been such an idiot to invest my hard earned money on the box on day one. Well, shit happens.

Pre ordered the new GNR Christmas sweater! Hope it's cold enough in Dallas for me to wear it!  It's on their official website shop. Looks very cool!

You get free GNR stickers when you pre-order. It gets shipped on December 1

It might come in a gnr laundry bag as well.

I'm really bummed for the people that got fucked over. 

The only thing that I'm hoping for is that something good comes out of this and the UYI set (assuming one happens) is way more fairly priced to begin with. 

EXACTLY - CD, Unreleased tracks and live DVD. Nothing else thank you

I really want the red cassette, mostly just to offend the sensibilities of Gen Xers who seem to loathe cassettes :lol:

Cassettes are shit.   At least records are big and cool looking.

 

Cassettes sound like shit, and look like shit.  They're nothing "cool" or "chic" about them.  The artwork is also tiny and cropped.   God, I can't believe there's anyone out there that thinks cassettes are cool.

Cassettes have some sort of resurgence happening and I just don't understand it. A couple of years back, people were claiming that cassettes would have a comeback as big as vinyl... Lol no. 

The AFD cassette is just another example of GNR being a day late and a dollar short, so now they have to literally give it away.

They were way better than those horrible 8 track cassettes. What were they thinking?

8 tracks at least have an interesting history. The format was created by the automotive industry. The tapes themselves were awful with way too many drawbacks, but the history of them is at least interesting.

8 tracks have a thicker tape than cassettes and better sound but yes, there are a lot of drawbacks as you mentioned (the splitting of tracks being the most irritating). Another cool thing about them is the time they were prominent is a time that space age design was really popular, so there are some really cool 8 track players, like the weltron 2001, the panasonic "TNT" plunger, etc....

That is fine with me, because the fans get this stuff at what it should have been priced at to begin with.

The band had little to do with the box set. That was the label. But, it was definitely poor execution. 10,000 is a silly amount. Should have been something like 1,987 of them made, and it needed live concert footage. Ah, duck it, you’re correct. What a shit product.

The Maxfield stuff is up. Some jackets, shirts, pins and hats. The one Axl skull shirt is sort of cool but doesn’t say GNR anywhere. All a pass for me. Was hoping for that LA Dodgers AFD shirt. 
 

Separately, there Is now a limited set of lithos of live shots + 3 LA 2017 Buhler lithos (zoomed into the faces)
