Wow...it looks really nice but realllly expensive at the same time. Still, big Agalloch fans are going to eat those up pretty darn fast. Those are some lucky 500 people.

According to that site it's already their #1 recent bestselling item, so people are giving up the cash. If it was $130 I'd do it in a heartbeat. 130 Euros is another story...

Same, when I first saw it I read it as $130 and could see how they came up with that price. The EUR part gave me a mini heartattack. Luckily I'm not a massive Agalloch fan so I don't have a problem letting this one slide.

METAL!
Bought the red Vinyl before it sold out. Hasn't come in the mail yet as there were shipping delays, but the wait is killing me.

Cheap?
That one is already 132 pounds which is 167 euro (so 37 more than the original) with 7 days of bidding left.

Well considering its now sold out at Viva Hate and Prophecy which are the only 2 mailorder companies which sold it. If you do your homework and follow the price of these boxsets you will battle to find one on ebay for less than £180.

As far as I was aware Viva Hate was selling the box excusively. However, I read fans complaining on forums that they ordered from them and had all sorts of shipping issues. I managed to get one from Prophecy a few months back and had no issues. Its a class piece of merch but is expensive and I guess for the diehard fans who have a bit of cash to burn

Finally caved and bought one of these the other day. Took a huge chunk out of my wallet...but it's more than worth it.
