So how "Limited' is this edition? Did I miss the boat forever because I haven't ordered one yet? It's sold out everywhere I look.

special Limited Edition physical package that includes a CD in a tri-fold Soft Pack Video Brochure featuring a 4" HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, a USB charging cable, a 2 watt speaker and a 36 page insert book and MP3 download card.

Who was able to pre-order one? Where'd you get it?

This is the lowest I've seen on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/p/Tool-Fear-Inoculum-Limited-Edition-CD-4-HD-Screen-2w-Speaker-More/3033766306

Seems like a deal for what's showing up on eBay.

I ordered a copy from my local record store. He ordered 3 and 1 of them is mine!

I am assuming...only assuming that the limited edition is limited to 100,000. Who knows tho, maybe they'll make more. Lateralus Vinyl is limited edition, yet everyone has a copy.

I got one on Amazon two days ago, it seemed to be sold out on all other UK stores.

It seems to be mostly sold out around the place, but I believe that's mostly because stores haven't been able to confirm how many copies they can get. Reportedly there will be a second batch, so I don't think anyone will miss out

if we could all keep this whole "second batch" talk on the DL, i uh, kinda bought 10,000 copies (in honor of 10,000 days) ...hoping to resell at $10,000 ea (...oh! uhhh ...'in honor of 10,000 days').

making the physical album a limited edition release is honestly bullshit. why would they not want as many people as possible having access to the artwork?

Well, everything is a limited edition since the Earth only has a finite level of resources.

It's fancy packaging, at a certain point you make a business decision in regards to how much money you want to make or lose.

that might be the dumbest thing you've ever said.

Letís keep it slightly more civil.

I agree with hellboy. This album is expensive to produce, they definitely donít want to make too many.

As for the ecological aspects of putting finite earthly materials into something that will be used once then put in a drawer...who can say.

Wow... I had no idea it would be so limited - I pre-ordered on a whim (don't buy many physical copies these days) on the 8th. I came in here to lurk and read opinions - and see that the album has become more valuable than gold. Only time in my 47 years on this rock that I've actually gotten in on a limited release in time..

Looks like $190 on amazon currently.. wow.

I'm on my first full listen through right now... Wanted to wait until I could do it in one sitting.

There was one one the shelf at Barnes and Noble the other day... it was one of the same ones I already have, so I passed on it. Should I pick it up?

I dunno, are you a collector or are you looking at it as some kind of financial investment? I doubt a financial advisor would recommend purchasing it for that reason.

Iím not out here to make money, but if someone wanted me to ship it to them Iíd be happy to make their day.

**edit: just so long as they pick up the tab/shipping.

Keep waiting then I guess. No real need to panic about a bit of plastic containing a record all of us have heard by now.
