Yeah, great isn't it.

And ironically, it's always the hardcore (us) that pre-order and then get stitched up!!!!

I wonder if this is an official Queen Productions release or something exclusive for Recordstore.co.uk?

It really does beg the question  - Why is there no official announcement?

Are Universal and QPL really so un-organized?

OR, is it meant to be hushed up until the fans have already bought the individual albums and then, hopefully buy it all over again to get a box?

OR, is it a mistake?

If you feel stitched up, I'd be happy to send you some cardboard.

Since such things are clearly so important to you.

So the box comes out nearly a month later?
WHY?????

Surely they know it will be mainly fans who go for the box, so why piss them all off by making them wait another 3 weeks.
QPL really ARE a bunch of ungrateful wankers who don't give a shit about the people who have stayed loyal to them these last 40 years.

Pre-orders were made to be cancelled, my friend.  It only stitches you up if you let it.

Also, I don't store my CDs in cardboard boxes anyway. A box would totally screw with my OCD CD organizing system.

It looks like the CD's in the box got plastic covers, and the seperate ones in cardboard covers...

Cheapest I've seen it so far is £64.93 at Asda online - only a fiver more than buying the deluxe editions anyway, so may be worth it if you can wait another three weeks?!

A Dutch retailer already has the cd's and posted some pictures on his Facebook page. Seems that they're all in super-jewel-cases. No deluxe digipacks or anything. Fuckers.

Yes, they are out in Ireland as well. I went to HMV at lunch time and I saw them:
two editions. Normal one at 13.99 euros and "extended" one at 16.99. They both look the same: crap.
Very dissapointed. At least they are not expensive.
I ended up buying an "A Night at the Opera" T-Shirt for 14.99. :-) I  will eventually order the box from an online seller.

I was looking forward to beautiful fold-out digipacks, as that is the way they seem to appear at QOL. But no, just throw them in jewelcases. Fuck quality, the fucking fans will buy it either way.
