Also has anyone here got it? If so what's the 120 book like? Does it have rare photos too?

Amazon have 2nd hand ones, but the cheapest one is £170 and the cds are scratched! : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Freddie-Mercury-Solo-10-CD-Region/dp/B00004YTWM
Can't seem to find this in HMV or anywhere, so wondering if there is anywhere else?

Ebay is another option, someone trying to sell one for £275 though, a bit steep: http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/?_nkw=Freddie+Mercury+-+The+Solo+Collection&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=Freddie+Mercury+-+The+Solo+Collection+%28%2B2DVD%29&_osacat=0

Has this gone out of production now then? As in theres only a limited number ever made?

Auction sites. Just make sure you take part in bidding, and evade any shady webshop that wants the top price for it. Plus, you need some patience and luck as well. I got mine for 50 euros only.

Congratulations. I almost bought one for 250 Euros few years ago, but fortunately enough someone was faster.
So now I'm searching on various auction sites for a reasonable price

Haha thanks. The guy who sold it only allowed people from The Netherlands to bid on it, so basically it was a piece of cake seeing there was hardly any interest at all! I call it sheer luck though :)

Good luck with your search! It's definitely worth it!

Yeah true...but I see many of them sell around the 100 mark which I think is okay.

I've just put my Freddie Mercury Solo Collection up on eBay, if anybody's interested! I've kept it in very good condition throughout the years! :)

I got this for my 20th birthday, and the shop gave me it the day before it was actually due to come out.  It has a lot of sentimental value for me, but I think that the discs weren't great quality and were easily scratched.   don't think I've seen a copy that hasn't got scuffed discs.  Anyway, it's long out of production (came out 10 years ago) and retailed at £100 back then.  I would say that anywhere from £70-£100 is a good price for it.  Anything above £150 is definitely a rip-off.
