That would seem like a dumb thing to do, but maybe wrong.

Postage to Australia is murderous on the KISS site. Really hoping that the box will be available on Amazon and other outlets.

This is why I hope that maybe Universal can possibly bulk ship to Australia and make them available with reasonable postage rates. Will no doubt sell more copies locally that way.

Yes, the shipping overseas is really bad. It’s the standard rate for courier based on weight and I get it, but c’mon, Universal surely could have negotiated a deal with Amazon.

I'm buying this regardless however the shipping cost will most definitely deter many fans from buying it. $200 looks good but once you factor in so much more plus taxes and the exchange rate it will impact sales. Especially in this covid climate where many people are hurting...

So it sounds the super deluxe box set only on Kissonline. It sucks , but maybe my only alternative.

Geez, be patient people. It's been on pre order for a couple of days. No one knows all the ways it will be available yet.

Originally the Soundboard bone vinyl was listed as a KOL exclusive, but ended up on SOV, uDiscovermusic and elsewhere. This box isn’t listed as a KOL exclusive.

I’m hoping it will pop up on uDiscover at some point as I have a free shipping coupon there.

I imagine they’re waiting to maximise KOL pre-orders first, and may then move it to more general sale. But you never know. It’s not listed as a limited edition either, but then again neither was the DTK red vinyl. So there’s some risk in waitIng. I’m holding off for now.

It’s not going to be a KISSonline exclusive. And prices will go down SUBSTANTIALLY when it’s in stores. The preorder price on the recent comparable George Harrison ATMP box set was lowered by twenty or fifty bucks once it hit the stores.

The Casablanca Singles box released 9 years ago and supposedly limited to 2,500 copies is still available on uDiscover. So, I’m not too worried about this box selling out anytime soon. They’ll make enough to meet demand. Probably they’re hoping the typical greedy crowd come in and buy 5 copies each to try to flog on eBay. I think a few got stung with Killers…I hope so.

Many Euro or Japan releases have different track lists.

Amazon shipping is highly subsidized. No one else gets those rates.

To expect anyone to match an Amazon shipping price is the same as expecting them to compete with a guy's shipping rates that steals the postage and supplies from their employer.

Shops are now getting these items as upcoming release, but price is not set yet.
In Norway, you can order these at Platekompaniet and Skvis soon. I bet lots of other online stores will list all items (except colored vinyl) pretty soon
