Fair enough, but it still doesn't change the fact score collectors choose CD's as the preferred medium.

I assume that's true in general (it's certainly true here, by and large), but why do we assume score collectors are the target audience here?


Well that's the irony isn't it?

Still no one provides a link of this news. I can't find it in a Google search either.

Just the Bumblebee variant which is exclusive from them. The other two will come later.

That one is $29.99 plus shipping plus customs tax (of which there wil undoubtedly be some if you're in the UK) Pricey.

Yup. That's why I said 10 dollars (I'm in the UK). I forgot to mention currency exchange fees too!

A few people on the TF forums not impressed that Thinkgeek have upped the price from $18.99 to $29.99 and frankly you can't blame them.

Other two variants now live.

Gone up to $25. So much for $18.99!

Done and done! I ordered the Optimus Prime edition of the LP. Now I just need to order the adapter for my turntable to my Mac so I can import the music when it arrives!

Both Optimus and Megatron variants have sold out in five minutes.

I'm not kidding.

Now sold out from EnjoytheRide (500 copies each variant) and BumbleBee variant still available from ThinkGeek:

Well, this puts Intrada and LLL 'fast sellouts' into perspective!

Five minutes... I am speechless.

It just goes to show how collectable Transformers stuff is.

Yeah, I went back to take a look out of curiosity and am utterly shocked at seeing that.

500 Optimus units
500 Megatron units

The Bumblebee variant had a 1000 unit run and is still available exclusively from Thinkgeek if anyone wants it.

But not for long, I suspect.

Five minutes. FIVE MINUTES. You'd think they were selling tickets to a One Direction gig.

Interestingly though, on their twitter page, they responded a few hours to someone who asked that they would try to repress the album if it sells out quickly, but in a different color format, no doubt which would the Prime and Megatron editions more valuable.

I kept refreshing the main page of the EnjoytheRide site thinking it would have gone up there but it didn't, so I rushed to the Transformers forum and found the direct link there (apparently you had to run a search query on ETR to find it). I just barely got my order in for a Megatron copy - had my address and credit card at the ready.

But yeah, disappointed in how limited this release is and I anticipate a lot of complaints over how this was handled.

I am now hearing the Optimus variant sold out in three minutes and Megatron in six. You were lucky.
