How many of us have already ordered, and how many are still sitting on the fence, or just can’t afford to splash out $200++

I would snap this box set up in a second if there was a vinyl edition. That’s my reason for passing. I’ll just stream the bonus discs from Spotify when they become available.

I choose the stream/download option. I don't even know if it will be available as a digital version?

Please note that I will do this legally. Illegal downloading are for idiots only. (At least when the product is available legally...)

Hey, please add ‘no vinyl edition’ to the poll, I’m sure there’ll be a few of us record nerds (ie me!) to vote for that one. Thanks!

I’m afraid if I do that, then all the votes cast already get lost. Not 100% sure. Can anyone confirm? I’ll be away now for 2-3 hours, will add later if it’s possible to do without losing the existing votes.

I really like the box, but it's pricy for me. Especially with shipment, so I chose that one.

I pre-ordered a copy of the black vinyl mini version which does look sweet but my oh my would I gladly have purchased a full deluxe version...alas, it was only offered as coasters (aka CDs)

So they left my money in my wallet for the deluxe version

I will download the songs I want from Apple Music. The 2014 remaster sounds great to me in hi-res and I can pick and choose from the bonus discs. I'm on the fence about many of the instrumentals.

I bought a copy on Kiss Online as soon as I heard about it. Now I am wondering if there will a Japanese release with more songs and/or extras. I may have jumped the gun. We'll see....

The lack of an actual vinyl version of the boxset killed it for me. I might've paid 200.00 for a vinyl boxset but I'm not paying 200.00 for 4 CD's, a blu ray disc, and a crap load of kitsch that I'll take out and look at once and then never look at again. I passed.

Option 4: Not yet - waiting for a Euro/UK release. And for price clarification and probable discount, I like getting new stuff but my days of buying (multiples ?!) of absolutely everything Kiss-related instantly it comes out are gone....

No, too expensive and no vinyl or video.

I became aware of this box set after I'd already purchased the recent Metallica box.

For me to pull the trigger on this I'd need vinyl and DVDs added and for postage rates to Australia to drop.

Hope everyone who buys it enjoys it.

Yeah, but not Destroyer Deluxe. I hope it will be available. I'm not forking over 200 bucks.

Yep. Ordered the deluxe boxset and coloured vinyl from kissonline. What sold it for me was getting my hands on the old 70s swag (tourbook, Kiss army kit, flyers, etc) even if it is repro stuff because I could never afford to buy the real 70s collectibles.

I think the crap load of kitsch is absolutely killer but I just don't need CDs. I agree it would be stellar to have included some kind of disc containing videos - concerts, Paul Lynde stuff, interviews, TV ads, that kind of thing. But this exact same package with vinyl instead of CD & I'm buying it whether there's video included or not

One thing that gets me is, looking at it, it looks like it would be a big enough box for vinyls. Just take out the form fitted insert, it looks like the same kind of plastic insert that held the CDs in the Kiss Box Set (which also should have been released on vinyl by the way)

I have no idea how much money they misssed out on but Universal lost some sales going without a vinyl release for this

I voted "Not yet - waiting for a Euro/UK release". The shipping costs to the Netherlands are a bit too steep for me on KOL. I probably go for the German edition with the extra slip sheet.

For those of you that have ok credit and want the box set but don’t want to fork out $200 + shipping and tax in one hit,there’s the option to pay in monthly installments. With the 10% code it brings it down to $197. Then $19.80 a month. Takes the sting off of $200 all at once anyway.

That's also a thing for me. In the end it's just 4 cd 's. 4 x 20 euro makes 80 euro max as worth, with the goodies 100 is allready pricey.
I bought the Kiss 'mother of all boxes' for 50. Figuring it wouldbe 10 euro per cd, that's enough.

Most likely going to Stream on Spotify eventually.

•Unemployed
•I like vinyl a lot more than CDs
•no Blu Ray player, & not interested in 1
•lady wouldn’t let me display posters (which…I understand 😂)

Don’t mind my OCD list, I’m very happy for everyone who is psyched to buy this!

I think I’d be most interested in 1 for LICK IT UP 👅
