Got out of the vinyl game a while ago (for the most part) and glad I did. But the blog post on Mondo's site about the guy who did each one of these sounds like they'll hold up.
I believe he was also the guy who did the Jack White and Friday the 13th ones that had so many issues as well.

Completely nuts. I'd be afraid to play it. Makes me wonder if people even buy these to listen to the score. My Queen vs Power Loader copy will do.

Ha. Genuinely laughed out loud at that one.

Despite being a huge fan of the first two (and a closet Prometheus apologist) Alien day has completely clogged up my world at this stage. After this I think if I never see a xenomorph on a print again I'll actually volunteer for the colonisation of LV426.

I always find it humorous when when one group of folks who collect something and spend lots of money for that then turn around and think folks that collect some other group of things as silly.
AKA "I Can't believe some one would pay hundreds of dollars for a record," for a pair of shoes, for a coin, for a print.....

Its gimmicky. It's cool. It's brightly colored. And super limited. Zero surprise this sold out instantly.

Would you mind giving us non FB'ers the gist of it? New Star Wars prints/merch presumably?

Hopefully it's a vinyl SW soundtrack filled with "Bantha Milk" RRP $500
