The thing is, Aenima and Lateralus don't need updates to their artwork. Unless you're going to dole out true "bonus content" that you can listen to/watch, I don't know that I'd want one of those either. Opiate is really the only one where a new package would seem appropriate to me.

The biggest plus for me here as a fan is, it reminds me of how much they just beat the pants off of basically every other band on the planet in terms of packaging. I cannot fucking WAIT for the new album.

You better go ahead and get them. You'll hate yourself if you don't. Because now you've just got this kind of unexplainable odd number of incomplete colors on the shelf. People will always ask annoying questions about why don't you have two more color variations.

After learning they are signed knew they would be at the $100 mark, I guess adding $50 isn't bad considering it says it comes with a COA, almost signed up for a TA membership for the pre sale glad I didn't (almost got one last year but consensus was that it wasn't worth it) so just waiting till the 26th now to order my copy

For those of you who have bought multiples/the full set: will you be opening all, or any, of them? I've always wondered this about collectors. I don't see a point in buying the product and then not appreciating it fully.

@slick, would've bought the 5th one seeming how it seems to be the more popular one just my opinion, just trying not to hate seeing it may take me time to acquire funds for the whole set in hopes they dont sell out too fast haha, cheers on your purchases bro !

Welp- I got mine ordered. however, I have it being shipped to the wrong address. Hopefully orders@toolband.com check their email to get this corrected. $150...ouch


Be sure you've updated the address in your member profile too. I'd also continue sending emails to Merch until you receive a confirmation that it'll be shipped to your new address. Once it's out of the shop you're unlikely to get any consideration/help regarding tracking, replacement, refund, etc. Caveat emptor.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

Adam pretty much said that in the last two interviews he did.  I'd be really surprised if Aenima and Lateralus ever got artwork updates, not needed don't do it.

Vol 4 and 5 should still be available in the regular sale next week.  So if you really want them you can get them then.

I'm curious, what's the big appeal for 5 as opposed to the others?

i thought they were 'doing this for the fans' as adam jones said in a recent interview, once i saw they were signing them i thought maybe this was going to be 'for the fans' and not their wallets but i guess not

some are saying people complaining about money etc etc but its kinda a rip off. then again i did buy a 130 dollar poster and framed it but at least its big and not some dinky little siigned cd.

not this time tool! it looks nice enough but its a bit too heavy on the loot!

plus im sure high quality scans will be put up online somewhere. thats fine enough for me on this one!

Yea i've emailed them a few times. My email address was wrong too. So i emailed them from my old email and new email. I couldn't figure out how to update my info until after I submitted my order. I didn't want to risk losing my item trying to figure it out. So after I placed my order, I updated all of my info on TA.

 I'll email them daily. Hopefully it won't be an issue. Most other places are good about getting your info updated.

Anyone know if they are still available?  I know everyone feels like this is a cash grab, but I was wondering if anyone thought that this is them testing the waters to see if their music will still sell?  

Yeah probably dumb idea just wondering.......

All I'm going to say about the price is if people are willing to pay $100 - $125 for a signed concert poster then this shouldn't be a big surprise.


One of the most sensible posts up here today.  It's expensive, and I can understand people not wanting to drop that kind of money on it, but genuinely surprised people didn't see this price coming.

 I agree.  I expected $100+.  I also bought one and am excited to open and enjoy it!

I find see amusing to see everybody complain about the pricing on the merchandise. If I recall correctly, the Lateralus platinum record was selling for over $200.

So what's it in for me this time? Something to go along with my signed Lateralus and sealed Aenima vinyl. I am into the music. They've given to me over the years and I have no problem giving back. I don't collect much of anything but touch my Tool collection and I may bite off your fingers.

 

I'm in for 2... Sets.

 

If you are going to complain about the price... go get a job. Nobody is telling you to buy it.

I looked in my product history and my signed Lateralus vinyl was only $100. Given that was more rare, I find it funny this is more expensive. I still ordered it though. Thinking about getting another one.

All you know about me is what I've sold you,
Dumb fuck.
I sold out long before you ever heard my name.

I sold my soul to make a record,
Dip shit,
And you bought one.

All you read and
Wear or see and
Hear on TV
Is a product
Begging for your
Fatass dirty
Dollar

Shut up and

Buy my new (21 year old) record
Send more money
fuck you, buddy.



Not sure why anyone is surprised...

Thanks. 

 

I think the thing that messed with people's price expectations the most is Adam's "for the fans" comment.

Yeah, not sure what people were expecting.  I agree this thing is over priced, but people take shit that the band say too seriously sometimes.
