    is this coffee table book a limited edition or anything? I just remembered that I found my From The Inside at a used book store, so Im just gonna hope some "super fan" one day decides to sell his book..

    oh, and puh-leeze, the FTI book has 100+ more pages than the new MTM book is supposed to, and theyre selling it at 90 bucks?

    from what I gathered

    the shirt is $19.95
    the CD/DVD Special Edition is $25.95
    the book is $55.00 (through deduction of the other two items)

    I looked up From The Inside, not sure what the original price was, but it can be bought for $25 and it had over 150 pages. so either this book is ridiculously high quality photos or warner upped the price.

    I retract my earlier statement on this being a fair price after doing a breakdown of each item, but I still would like this package.

    I guess the reason why I bought the ultimate package is because I feel that if I didn't buy the best package, I might miss out on something that is only offered in this package (as far as song wise). i'm paranoid and no amount of justified logic can talk me out of second guessing myself, lol. oh well, credit card ftw :lol:

    I believe the CD/DVD packaging will be similiar to that of Meteora. as the "blue" packaging contained the original CD plus the DVD. but if you bought the "brown" version, it was JUST the CD.

    Is anyone else getting certificate errors on their merch site? When I click on to view and purchase the $35 pack, I get redirected to a different site, have to re-choose it and then IE7 tells me that the security certificate was registered to another site and asks that I close the browser and do not continue as it could be an attempt to fool me and steal my money/identity.

    Anyone else getting this?

    Also, I'm not paying 100 bucks for an art book. I will be getting the "middle" pack and getting the DVD, shirt and CD and a 24 page art book. 100 bucks is crazy for that. I'm not a collector really, I just want my band shirt and my music.

    I got that too, was never redirected and to confirm it's a real site, I was given a receipt from bandmerch, so it's legit. I had the little lock in the lower right hand corner and everything. their certificate probably just expired?

    do you think the CD + DVD will have the actual CD in its normal case, and the DVD in another?

    I think it'll be something similar to Meteora, where the CD and the DVD were in one package. Most bands do this now, and even with jewel cases, there's a double-sided CD holder inside the case that flips like a book, if that makes sense, but I doubt we're going to see a jewel case for this album, havn't had that since Hybrid Theory.

    And I really don't care about the book. It's not like when I open it it'll play the album. I'm just going to get the $25 package that Best Buy is offering and I'll be fine, the music is the most important part to me.

    "This bundle includes a special edition CD/DVD with a hard bound, 24-page book of full-color artwork and lyrics, housed in a linen-wrapped cover with embossing on front. The bundle also features the exclusive T-shirt only available on this site."

    Hard to decypher but my guess is that you will receive a CD/DVD package and then you will get the book along with that but I could also see them having little sleeves or pockets in the art book for your discs. I'm guessing we'll get a seperate case for the discs.

    What ever happened to the days of just buying a cd and not having all the extra crap that comes with it? It's rather sad. :lol:

    I make a lot of money but I would never waste it on this "super fan" stuff. I'm just going to buy the album at Best Buy and be done with it. :lol:

    It's unbelievable how things have changed since the Hybrid Theory & Meteora days. It's all about money now. I'm not saying before it wasn't, it just seems like it is now more than ever.

    I agree.

    I was so excited to get the Super-fan edition, especially for the artwork. But 100 bucks? That's fucking ridiculous.

    How do you know if you bought the explicit or clean version? I don't see anything.

    Yeah, that 100.00 thing actually disappointed a lot of fans including myself. This album better be the nicest thing since sliced bread cause I've never, ever, seen Linkin Park do something so greedy before and it surprises me. Most of LP's fans can't afford 100.00 like that and LP should know this. That's insane and just greedy if you ask me.

    And to think, Phoenix sounded so nice when I talked to him. Now I don't know what to think. This is sad.
