I don't see it so I'll ask: 1999 Super Deluxe SOLD OUT

Smack me upside the head of this has been addressed but, does anyone in the know, KNOW if more 1999 5CD/1DVD boxes will be printed? I ordered in late December after no one got it for me for Christmas even though so was pretty much told I would be getting it and not to order it myself. When the person who was supposed to get it spaced, I immediately ordered on Amazon in late December.

Amazon kept pushing off the estimated arrival date until they automatically canceled my order, and the only place I found a price not taking advantage of people was ImportCDs. I ordered it, listed on backorder, but is it on back order or never happening?

I would assume the estate recognizing dand if it's selling for $160 or more that they could make more and sell more and take the money for themselves.

But, if it is on back order and more is coming I would think they would have already done that so as not to overshadow new releases coming...

Am I on backorder forever, or does anyone know where they still have it and a not rediculous price. I don't want to reward those second hand sellers and I can't afford it eiher.

Or does anyone have it on good authority to just be patient?

Thank, missed you all.

Thanks. At least that's *only* $70 plus shipping plus tax that's still a lot compared to when I bought Amazon and they failed or my backorder at ImportCDs. I will keep it on my radar though.

I know that is somewhere around actual MSRP, BUT i can be patient....Does.anyone know if they are going to print more though? Is it not in their best interest? If it is a hard no, then I would consider that but just seems. I don't understand, it wasn't a limited edition and Amazon thought they would be getting more for 3 months before that circuit breaker trigger and they canceled the order.

Anyone else have insight into what is going on?

I had to cancel my Wal*Mart order, which I pre-ordered months before it came out. I had to go to E-Bay where I spent about $40 more than I would have but it was worth it to get the dang thing.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

I wonder how WB is going to handle reprints/reissues for these sets.

.

I'm a huge Tears For Fears fan, and I missed out on the super deluxe box sets of their first two albums back in the day. I was *this close* to shelling out money on frighteningly expensive eBay offers... when, just a couple of weeks ago, the label announced they were reissuing them! I pre-ordered that day... and by the next day the pre-orders were sold out almost worldwide! And now that I've found out that a super deluxe edition of their third album is planned for release later this year, I will pounce on that immediately.

.

So keep the faith, if you missed out. There's always a chance.

DON'T WORRY - The 1999 box, along with all other sorts of items, will be very cheap to aquire 2nd-hand soon, when the results of the Coronacrisis-induced economic depression begins. Good luck everyone, you'll need it.

1999 Deluxe was the original hand-sanitizer of planet earth (not to be confused with Planet Earth).

Same thing happened to me with Amazon. Now I'm leery in trying to purchase too much of anything from the estate. And with the current world financial and health crisis, I don't know when I'd even give them a second look.
