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'll buy all the albums twice just for the sake of a cardboard box.....

You deserve everything you get.

that's beautiful! but £69.99 ish? no tar, plus i already got the 5 albums. when I got some money for Christmas i went to HMV in merry hill because unlike the HMV in Telford they have Queen albums! and I started collecting in order from the beginning, but since they don't have all the albums i just get something that's around about in order, started from the early 70s, now going to trying to get the late 70s. hopeing  they have "the game" and "jazz", got a feeling they don't so if they don't I'll just get "a kind of magic" i know they have that. but for £15? might just get it from play.com for under £7.

I think you've missed the point about them being "remasters"....

Yeah, go to play.com. I've got my Japanese remasters for sale on there....

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

QOL confirmed they just weren't told about it.

Please go and edit your other 12 posts that say the same thing to reflect this answer.

I don't see any sense in buying this box set. It costs too much. I'll better buy one of five albums on March 14, they'll cost more cheaper.

If these are in platic jewel cases, then how do they plan to release the next 10 discs then so they will fit in these boxes?
Personally i'd rather have plastic jewel cases that crappy carboard digi-packs!

Actually it is coming out. It's an Amazon exclusive. I just pre-ordered it.
