Because nothing says thank you like a chance to spend 200 bucks!

Cool box set, but the price is a little bit steep. Dude has always been known to love a quick buck and this feels no different.

Hopefully we'll get their individual albums pressed in the future. I know more than a handful of people only care about the first two records, and don't feel like shelling out $200. For diehard 3EB fans, this is pretty sweet, though.

EDIT: Why not do just do the boxed set after their final album comes out next year? I understand this has a placeholder, but come on.

Except some diehard fans, like me, have already shelled out for the first two records' individual pressings.

If I didn't own any 3EB vinyl, I'd buy this in a heartbeat - but I have s/t and Blue. Really hope they piece this collection out individually so I can get OOTV & Red Star separately.

8 LPs means it's about $25 per LP, on 180-gram - maybe a tad steep, but actually not terrible.

I'm glad I'm just a casual fan of this band or else I'd probably end up buying this.

I'm not planning on buying this, but it's actually a pretty cool deluxe box set. Maybe a little pricey, but not outrageously so, considering what you're getting.

$200 is a pretty good deal when you factor in you're getting a set with some cool pieces that's limited to 500 and it's signed.

Not bad when put that way. But seems way less fan friendly than individual pressings, considering that even the band was flipping copies of S/T and blue for ridiculous prices.

180gram colored vinyl ain't cheap, but it's also not that pricy and can be sold for way more than regular vinyl.

Do they have rights to the masters? A major label release explains the prices perfectly and even the idea behind repressing it.
independently, NMH managed to price their box set at 88 bucks, which seems a whole lot more consumer friendly.

These won't have a problem selling, but the initial 200 price tag will drive away most fans now a days in such a price sensitive consumer age.

I think this is an incredibly fair price.
