Inside The National Treasures Box

Hi

thought is was worth a thread on its own so people could see, apologies if mods diagree and merge away.

my friends at Super Deluxe Edition have the box. no "unboxing" video, but here are 25 pictures of what's in it for your pleasure.

please take the time to look around, browse and comment on the rest of the site - the chaps have been busy building it up for a year now and it's starting to get some good attention at last.

Are the EMG singles sealed up like the original releases?

Looks like the single you got from preordering with HMV is identical to the one in this, phew that eliminates the temptation for a £165 box for 1 track.

In all fairness it does look pretty nice, but i'm not convinced it's £165 worth of nice, for that I would expect ALL Bsides etc. But thanks for the link to the photos, - interesting!

Makes me want it to be honest.

Some of the repeated tracks on the B-sides (Motown Junk / Suicide Alley etc) makes me angry though. Such a waste.

Wow, I really would like to buy the box, but I'll have to save some money first.

looks amazing..such a shame its not complete. That lipstick and mirror...what exactly was the point? Looks dull..magazine freebies look better than that! Is the poster double sided?

if you post comments on the page the guys are rather good at answering what they can as quick as they can; although i imagine all five people in the universe who bought this are on here and will comment when they get.

let's hope for an unboxing video.

I suggest we all hold our nerves and buy it next summer at a much discounted rate.
