OK, I don't have any willpower at all! In fact I think I must be NUTS!! I've just ordered one! MO - you have a lot to answer for  :laugh:

same here with me Tubular_trekkie! ordered mine last night, I just couldn't stop myself  :D
the thing is I had an email from Mike Oldfield ( not the man himself, obviously ! ) informing me of their availability, and it's not every day that name pops up in my inbobx..sadly... so I pounced and acted quickly as a cat!

And now, I am glad I did, because after all these years (most of my life actually ) I feel it will be something worth having and will mean so much to me to own it. And tee shirts!!! oh tee shirts!!! at last! I have ordered one of them too.

very naughty girl, but rather pleased with myself also!

Yeah, but it's fun though, eh?  :D  :cool:

I didn't order a t-shirt as I can't see me wearing it. (Unless of course there was to be a concert to wear it to, like tubular.ed has said...) Anyway I've got enough silly nerdy shirts with Star Trek logos on them  :p

A Tubular Bell is something not everyone knows about. Everyone knows about Startrek.

For me, it will be a pleasure to wear a TB-shirt and enlighten the young people with one of the best performances in music!

Good point. Actually I'd really like some tubular bells stud earrings. I think that would be quite unusual and subtle - and I'd wear something like that a lot more than a t-shirt  :cool:

... and now 3  :D I guess some credit card payments bounced or something... the Buy-link wasn't there anymore for a while. I just hope this isn't one of the "limited" editions. ;)

Baaaah that is unfortunate. I checked the site and e-mail every day and only yesterday i didn't have the time. Now I check it just to find out that if I did that before going out to cut grass I would get one. :(

What does the "In stock soon" mean? Maybe they didn't sell out all of them yet?

I wonder whether that's it for the signed copies then. Or perhaps they've held back some of them for when the buy link becomes available on Monday for the rest of the world and his wife to scrabble for? Maybe that's why it says 450 signed copies available on that banner?

Or maybe I've just got too much time on my hands for endless speculation...  :laugh:  :laugh:

Ah, that's it then. They've apparently all gone. There's now a message saying that all the signed copies have sold out in under 24hrs. Universal must be very happy bunnies indeed  ;)

F********************K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I knew this would happen! On one of the only few days I happen to be in France for work, the signed box is being sold out right before my eyes (I still am in France, and happen to have an internet connection here).

Damn!!!   :(

Greetings from a pissed Blue Dolphin in France.
