Re: 50th Anniversary

Re: 50th Anniversary

This is something we will do on future releases ie the 40th Anniversary picture discs for sure - this set was done and dusted and no more could be produced for this campaign between last week and this.

Re: 50th Anniversary

Re: 50th Anniversary

They are pre-sellers, it's not rocket science they are probably lined up outside the store right now with mates or partners, who they will send in to get multiple copies or even change hats and glasses and disguises - happens all the time over at the Stones store across the street.
