It's not sold out.

Currently available - though I can't imagine who'd actually buy it.
I'll order 20 and then resell them for hundreds of dollars on ebay and discogs
Sounds like literally every member in the Kiss vinyl collector groups on Facebook. They show a photo of their cart in Walmart with like 20 of the same record and claim "oh I bought these to give away to friends". Year right
It makes me sick! Somehow someway those people should be prosecuted!!!

I haven't bought the original pressing of "KISSWorld" because I didn't really need another comp, but that vinyl looks way too cool to pass up.

You’re going to pay a lot more than you planned. They all are bought and are on eBay for 150

Well, in the case of this album, it might come to bite them in the ass. :D It's still readily available for preorder...and I wouldn't be surprised if it remains readily available for a good while. It might end up clearanced to unload them...because who gives a shit about Kissworld? The regular black vinyl is available for $20.49 at Amazon, and for less than most double albums go for at numerous online shops...probably because it's not a popular seller.

Unfortunately, I called it... Kissworld. It's also somehow out of stock immediately when it went live...but who gives a shit, honestly?

I'd never even looked at the KISSWORLD track listing until now. It is awesomely random, I'll give it that.
I wish it would have been YWTBYGTB vinyl. I remember when it came out on CD. I stared at it in disbelief. The 4 originals in make up back together. I didn’t care what was on it. I wanted it. Being it was the CD days I didn’t even think about a vinyl version even though I am an original Kiss Army member from back in the day when vinyl was alive and well. I still don’t have it on vinyl. Wish I did.

Here's my whole thinking behind the whole flipping the vinyl on ebay or whatever:

These "limited exclusive" vinyls are priced a little high, high enough that people on here complain, but still affordable when they are released on KISSonline. Many times I see people on here complain about the price. I buy two copies. I keep one, then sell the other on ebay for twice as much as I paid for it. So essentially the copy I keep is free. Who doesn't like free?

If you don't want to pay ebay prices, just buy your copy when it is released on KISSonline. Don't wait, don't flip flop back and forth in your thinking. Just buy it.

I can see that it's frustrating to see the album you wanted to purchase be sold out and in some cases over triple the price on ebay. But you really can't begrudge somebody for figuring out a way to not only get a free copy but to make some cash on the deal for something you didn't want in the first place and have no intention of buying.

As far as this release goes, the Walmart exclusive KISSWorld, I don't see any reason to justify that $150 price on Ebay. I think that seller is delusional.

Kinda hard to do with something like Killers where most of the stores that sold it ended up never actually receiving it. I had the same problem with a Kreator box set recently. Ordered it from 4 stores and only 1 actually ended up getting it.

I really don't get the fascination or attraction to colored vinyl. Unless it's a picture disc, records should be black. Even though they're priced the same, I chose to pre-order Off the Soundboard in black vinyl instead of that shart stain look they have on the limited edition. :)

Guess it's just the nostalgia part of it. Aside from the solo album picture discs, every album I owned was black vinyl. I do have Destroyer Resurrected now in Walmart Orange and a Trans-Siberian Orchestra album in Walmart White. :)

This is a big part of why I don't work hard for Kiss vinyl.

It's like...just chuck it in the fuck it bucket....about 200 dudes are gonna buy them all up to flip them.

Now that I have the debut on OG, no original pressing, vinyl...I am only really pining for Alive III, and if I never get a copy of it, I'll deal.

I hope you find it. I have the 180 g repress, but only after setting up an Amazon tracker to tell me when it randomly cratered in price.

I had a copy in my hands...$30...a couple months ago...whipped out the debit card...

Walked outside to look at the LPs...

One of them...was Alive II...

I walked back in feeling loads of sadness.

Mine said arrival on the 25th as well. FedEx says it should be here by Friday.

I'm wondering if that's when the variant will hit the store shelves.

it is not price gouging. price gouging is when you charge way too much on a necessary item durning an emergency.

Yep. I bought one a couple weeks back. I usually don’t buy tour-like shirts from stores, because I prefer to purchase actual tour shirts at the concerts I attend. I was too young in 1977 to attend a concert. But the new retro LG World Tour shirt from Walmart is really cool. I’m contemplating getting a second shirt because it looks great, it’s so inexpensive and I’m so tough on shirts. 😎
Ive seen the Love Gun recently, only in size small though. I picked up one I hadn't seen before. KISS in early 75(?) Costumes, in front of a fire truck. With the words "On Tour"... no year. For 7 bucks though, I'll pop.

I was too young in 1977 to attend a concert. But the new retro LG World Tour shirt from Walmart is really cool. I’m contemplating getting a second shirt because it looks great, it’s so inexpensive and I’m so tough on shirts. 😎
Ive seen the Love Gun recently, only in size small though. I picked up one I hadn't seen before. KISS in early 75(?) Costumes, in front of a fire truck. With the words "On Tour"... no year. For 7 bucks though, I'll pop.

I want the yellow RARO shirt

You’re going to pay a lot more than you planned. They all are bought and are on eBay for 150
Again this bullshit needs to be stopped!!!
I don’t see how. Limit one per hour per IP address? 🤷‍♂️

I snagged 30 copies using multiple accounts, happy to sell you one for $600 plus $25 shipping.

I hope people did that with this release because they'll probably lose money trying to unload them...

Of course they will. It looks bloody horrible anyway, why anyone would want it in the first place is beyond me.

Yep. I bought one a couple weeks back. I usually don’t buy tour-like shirts from stores, because I prefer to purchase actual tour shirts at the concerts I attend.

That sounds cool! I think I’ve seen that shirt.

Hold tight if you want the LGWT77 shirt. My Walmart stores got more in, so all shirt sizes are available. Hopefully your store will get more, too.

:lol: These are products sold on the free market (i.e. everyone in the USA had the exact same chances FOR DAYS at ordering). Where is the price gouging? What overriding human need (shelter, security, transportation, etc) is met by being allowed to purchase?

These "limited exclusive" vinyls are priced a little high, high enough that people on here complain, but still affordable when they are released on KISSonline. Many times I see people on here complain about the price. I buy two copies. I keep one, then sell the other on ebay for twice as much as I paid for it. So essentially the copy I keep is free. Who doesn't like free?

If you don't want to pay ebay prices, just buy your copy when it is released on KISSonline. Don't wait, don't flip flop back and forth in your thinking. Just buy it.

I can see that it's frustrating to see the album you wanted to purchase be sold out and in some cases over triple the price on ebay. But you really can't begrudge somebody for figuring out a way to not only get a free copy but to make some cash on the deal for something you didn't want in the first place and have no intention of buying.

As far as this release goes, the Walmart exclusive KISSWorld, I don't see any reason to justify that $150 price on Ebay. I think that seller is delusional.
100% correct on all points. None of these LP's have sold out in under a day, not even the red Dressed To Kill.

Kinda hard to do with something like Killers where most of the stores that sold it ended up never actually receiving it. I had the same problem with a Kreator box set recently. Ordered it from 4 stores and only 1 actually ended up getting it.
Sound of Vinyl, and certainly KISSonline have these rereleases. Not often has SOV not sold KISS color vinyl, but to be sure buy at KOL. Ignore the one off sellers. I think some of them posted the LP's knowing they would not be receiving them.

The expense begets a greater audio product and the inconvenience begets a more important listening experience.

So, yes, that describes me to a T.

We're going to be moving soon and yes, my vinyl collection is a major concern for the new place. :)
