I received the Freddie Mercury Boxed Set for Christmas. So thrilled. It's still factory sealed.

Yes. Still.

I haven't opened it yet. I'm dying to hear it, see it, all that, but I feel like it's almost too precious to open. I've wanted it for so long and now that I have it, I guess I'm savoring it. How dumb is that? Please, don't answer that question.

Can anyone think of a reason I shouldn't open this? I mean, it's not like I'm hoping to sell it as new one day. It's mine and it's staying mine. And it is Freddie, after all.

Take a picture of it factory sealed. You'll have that forever. Then open it. If you still can't, see a doctor.

Open it. Hypothetically if it were to go up a huge amount in value unopened, the only people willing to pay that much for it surely have it by now. Plus it rocks.

Barry -

I just saw the photo in your profile. LOL! At first I was shocked, then couldn't stop laughing. Way cool. :-)

Very true. Besides, I'm not looking to sell it.

It rocks, huh? Okay... I'm a step closer to opening it... Thanks all! :-)

I got mine the first day it came out. I cut the seal very carefully up the side so I could pull the book out of the box. I've still got the seal cover around it now after all these years. And it's still got the cardboard cover that it came in as well.

No, I haven't opened it. Am I pathetic or what?

This evening - now in fact - I shall pour myself a glass of wine, try to find a Roger Taylor drumroll, then VERY carefully open the seal and start to enjoy my Freddie Boxed Set. :-)

Go on magicalfreddiemercury open the bloody thing i guarantee you will not be disappointed with it at all, i had mine on wednesday and i was in awe i too looked at it and marvelled at it then i carefully opened the seal and took out the book.

I was very happy with it there is so much to look at and listen to having had it 3 days i'm just about ready to listen to all the cd's first,then i will watch the 2dvd's BTW there's a cool picture exhibition on the untold story dvd that has a dvd-rom section for the pc.

Enjoy.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

Well, I am in love all over again. This set is AMAZING!!!

Thanks, everyone, for the nudge to open it. I can't believe I've had this treasure here, unopened, since Christmas. :-)
