Now available at the London Stereoscopic site at £30 a SET!!!!
That's £60 for both sets with 12 cards in each.

Frankly I'm dismayed and flabbergasted at the extortionate pricing. Even the "Village Lost and Found" book was only £25 on Amazon when I bought it and that has 1000 times more substance to it.

Brian's certainly pricing himself out of the market with these cards which is a shame.
Surely it makes more sense to sell them at £10-£15 a set and sell more copies?
I've got a dozen or so friends in my city who are all Queen fans and go to Convention each year - that's how serious they are - and not one of them is willing to pay the price for these. That's at least a dozen sales lost as all of them would happily fork out about £20 for both sets.

Brian would have been better off producing a book of Queen stereo images: That would certainly have a much more world-wide appeal.

A piffling £30! Pay the man, and damn his impudence.

How big are the cards?
Are they in HD 3d?
I'm used to a 60" screen.

I had planned to buy them at the Hammersmith shows until I saw the price.

I too was suprised at the price but ordered them online and they arrived today.

They are well produced and packaged I have to say and they are a nice set to own.

Its something new and I feel its fresh, especially after the shit I witnessed watching the Olympic closing ceremony.

Yes, they are expensive and a niche product but I would highly recommend getting them if you are interested in 3D photography.

I AM interested in 3D photography and can't wait for Brian to publish his Diables book, but you can bet it will be half the price of these and far more content again like the "Village" book.

I'd have been more impressed with these Queen cards had they been from Brians' own personal collection of behind the scenes and candid shots akin to the ones that have been on the London Stereoscopic website for years.

Even with these stereo cards, the photos are mainly from the 80's (and a few 1979 it seems)....again..not even one pic from their 'early' days or a photo of Freddie with long hair...it's like Brian is trying to imagine that period of their history never happened..weird.

I can't quite get my head around these.

Whilst some look like different images on the left and right sides, some seem to be the same image simply shifted over slightly on the right side.

If that's the case then surely any photo could be adapted.

You could create your own album of whatever you like, so why pay £60?

Can't wait for the remixes to appear when they are released individually on Picture Star 3D.

the deluxe editions will be out for queen's 50th anniversary...all the same pictures, but in the wrong sequence, and with bits of the images overlapping/missing entirely....and the whole "deluxe reissue" costing twice as much...but it'll probably come in a nice box - ooooer missus!!!

Has anyone else bought an Owl or got one as part of the Lost & Found book? One of the hinges has already started to split on mine after only a few uses!

I'm not surprised, despite Brian saying they were good for 1000 openings....

I contacted the LSC about my problem and they were very helpful. They are sending me out a replacement OWL. Nice one Bri and co.
