Just did a bit of quick math, that's around a $550 total with shipping and tax to EU. So great they chose THIS one to be a US exclusive. 😕 Alas, I'm out.

Use ship7's mail forwarding service.  you mediamail it to their us storage then you can undervalue it to declare less tax and ship it for a way more reasonable price from them.

( I'm waiting for a 10 record order from various labels from them right now for 80 dollars total of shipping which would be a lot more if i ordered from the labels directly.)

Just got my boxset. Was a little worried the box seem a little loose where it the tape came across. Packed pretty nice inside. Foam corners all all four corners with big bubble wrap around the box. Box itself was in a plastic bag. Once opened there is more foam making so the records don’t slide around. Currently working so couldn’t open all the records (which are sealed). Only wish so far would be that there would have been some print on the side of the box instead of just the front.

Can you or anyone else who has it please post photos of it when you get a chance? I'm curious as to the quality of the set. 

 

I recently picked up the FFAF box set and was very impressed with the quality of the presentation. Others, like the Underoath one.... Eh not so much

I have both the others you are talking about. This one seems just like the Lagwagon boxset they did a while back.

The artwork on the box looks like it's just some placeholder artwork, waiting for the final product to be designed. That's really the final artwork they went with? Mine came in the mail today but I won't be able to see it until I get home from work. 

Were you able to open it? Interested in how the set looks if you have some photos.

Thanks. I saw that, but nothing really on the look of the set. That's just the vinyl color. I'm sure someone will put some photos up there eventually.

The set is nice and significant. I consider it worth the price. VC remains one of the most user-unfriendly sites to post pictures to. I'd be happy to share a couple but don't have the time to deal with this interface to do so unfortunately.

What do you mean by "the look of the set"?

Like is it a box you have to open to access the records, similar to a the box you take your jewelry home in from the store, or can you slide it into your shelf and pull the records out one by one, the same way you'd expect a book box set to be. 

 

I really appreciate the look of a well-made vinyl box set, so I'm curious as to its design. I'm sure discogs will have it at some point.
