You just had to look at the link in the news, it's 102€, less than 10€ per album.
I've got all of them works, but if I hadn't it would be a pretty interesting box.

Does ordinary metalhead can pay for it its like sek 10 000 ....
Ellrohir - 02.12.2012 at 15:17  
Its totally worth it!...if i do the math, the price per 1CD is half of common new single-cd release price in my country...however, i doubt i can afford it, although it would be legendary maybe later, when i start to work after university and finally earn money
OpenMind - 02.12.2012 at 15:52  
Ye i agree with most of you, for sure worth it if you don't have their cd's, maybe now the Virgin/Emi has finally realized they had lost a chicken that lays golden eggs...

Have all these albums... but... still... want...
SamuelSanchezAlvarez - 02.12.2012 at 18:17  
In my country 10 € is a really good price for an album, so I'm going to think if I want 15 albums.
Lit. - 02.12.2012 at 19:02  
I have NONE of the albums, so I'm jumping at this. Wonder if I'm able to buy it through the European retail even though I'm American...

That is EPIC!! Killer news for Blind Guardian fans

I have most of their studio albums, it sure as hell was worth it before I got an MP3 player, and I guess if you're die-hard fan and collector then it's always worth it. It looks really slick, although I'd kind of want their latest two to also be in there.

I hope to get the money for getting this pack. The remasters made in the "Memories Of A Time To Come" were nice in the earliest albums (except Somewhere Far Beyond, I didn't like it so much). Just I don't see how they will get a better sound for A Night At The Opera. If also were remastered A Twist In The Myth (This Will Never End in MOATTC kicked asses )

Love that when Blind Guardian does some sort of compliation, it never comes across as just piling together old stuff to make a quick buck (see-Iron Maiden). I'd preorder this right now if I had the cash.
Lyssamera - 03.12.2012 at 00:12  
As much as I love the band, I already have most of the studio albums and I'm not feeling like paying once again just for remasters. It looks pretty sick though, and it's not that expensive considering the price per one album plus the collector value!
Windir - 03.12.2012 at 06:10  
Wtf! it looks awesome but I already own every single release... 103 euros hmmm I don't know, time will tell... at the iron hill ha ha
