I'd buy one just to film me burning it and uploading it to youtube.

 

Fan boi tears would alone be worth the money.

Do it once they're well and truly sold out, and people are flogging them for, like, $150 on eBay.

I'd actually be willing to chip-in with you on this.

 
O love will you read the letters I will send to you.

Bottom line is they got (or feel) fucked the first time they put out Opiate, MJK being the money makin machine that he is said "said hey I have an idea".....Fool me once shame on you fool me twice empty wallets lil sheep. Adams reply.. yea yea thats great Ill add some artwork and have some oldtime printer pump them out, it'll be great!!!! Im over the whole wish they would put out an album already thing so I couldn't care less what they do these days, go gettem TOOL. Ive seen TOOL so many times in the early days, I know I will never see those days again. I remember when I first bought Opiate. The only reason I bought it was because of the album cover, I was hooked ever since. I get where they are coming from, if I were in their position I probably wouldnt have even put out 10000 days. I feel fortunate that I got to see them in those angry,hungry days. Peace out

After you take out all the costs Tool would be lucky to make $100,000 from selling 5000 copies of Opiate.  They'd probably make more money than that playing a single gig.  If the members of Tool are in it just to make money they're going about it all the wrong way.

Yea you're right about that, I guess Im just not seeing the point. I guess they really want to do it for the fans.

I'm hoping it will be telling Tyson he's a dick for burning the Opiate reissue.

Ah ok, you're posting from the blog instead of the forum. In that case just wrap the text you want to quote with the blockquote tag.

Yeah, they're not going to make much money on this. That kind of specialty printing is not cheap at all and packaging really adds up. Of course, we don't know what they're charging. But limited runs like that aren't going to net them much cash, as Hellboy pointed out.

Could well be just a bit of a side project for adam. The rest of the band seem to all have things going on,what does adam get up to?

I say good on him.

I wrote him off a while ago. His boring, bland, art could probably use some bizarre comic-book artist outsider's perspective. It's just a pity it wasn't Ben Templesmith. Holy shit can that boy illustrate.

As long as the fans get what they pay for, it really shouldn't affect any of the rest of us. Though, again, the whole concept does strike me as being a little weak.

Adam just posted a picture of himself signing the new Opiate copies on instagram.  Apparently all 5000 are signed, I THINK by the whole band.  I am pretty sure that's May Jay's "M" on the copies.

They really wrote their signatures 5,000 times?  Figured they would just make it part of the print.

So much for hoping for a $30 price tag, what now $100 at least?
