    My guess is around $75 USD, maybe as much as $90. New vinyl records themselves usually cost around $25-30 alone, PLUS this will have a CD and a very nice book. Pop-up things are much more delicate and hard to produce, so I think you can wager that the book alone would cost $30+ in itself if it were to be sold separately. I'm unclear as to whether the "exclusive content" mentioned will be part of the book or put into the package separately.

    Previous limited-edition things like this that I've bought or considered buying from other artists (Radiohead, Julian Casablancas etc) have cost around $80, and I think this will be about the same. Just because it sounds like it comes from the band's own brain doesn't mean EMI will let them market it for whatever they want--they're going to want to make a profit off of it considering they're hurting and it's uncertain whether or not they'll have the Coldplay cash cow in the future to keep them afloat. It would be lovely if they could get a compromise price down to about $50, but I have a feeling it'll be more like $70-80.



    Oh it comes with all that shit? thought it was just a fancy cover.

    Then I'd say ~$50

    I've seen other limited edition albums with a whole bunch of things added on - they easily come to $100 plus if not more - case in point - Maroon 5's last album, Lady Gaga's last album - were $130 - I'm thinking Coldplay's will be at least $100 easy if EMI is involved, and if they're comparing market forces for other bands - Coldplay is one of the biggest bands out there in the world today so expect the price to be up there accordingly esp with the cost of the pop up book being high already as a previous poster had mentioned.

    Can't wait for it, though, will be ordering it as soon as possible.
    All that sound....

    ^Oh wow, I guess I haven't bought a limited edition box set thing in awhile. ~$130? I guess someone like Gaga could get away with that. My worry is that Coldplay can too, but I guess my thought is that the band will probably want to keep prices low and EMI will want to keep prices high, so they'll meet somewhere in the middle (meaning more than $50 but less than $100).

    Because I'm a sadsack, I'll buy it no matter what. I missed out on a limited edition deluxe set like this from one of my favorite artists in the past few years, and now it's my life's mission to find one on eBay etc, so I don't want to repeat that experience

    But I know one day, good things are coming our way

    $100? $130? 100 x 4,20 Argentinian pesos= $420 + shipping not good. I'll try though.

    Remember, it's EMI making $$$ from the releases. Bands primarily make payday touring. It will not be cheap (aka $30 us). An LTD vinyl is $35+. Factor in the other crap and the "limited" label? Anyone thinking this'll be cheap is nuts.

    Jeez, I was thinking $30, but that doesn't seem probable though. Oh well, I will just have to save up

    In case EMI browses these forums....let´s not reveal we are actually willing to pay a lot to get the limited edition, guys! Let´s state that we won´t go over $50!

    This is a good way of representing what you get for the price. I've got some more to help people figure out how much we might be looking at.
