I'm just upset that it could've been me. With a CD like that, I expected interest to pick up once it got closer to the end of the auction. I didn't wanna tip my hand too soon and force a bidding war with so much time left. The way I see it, if you really need money as quickly as possible, you shouldn't choose a seven day auction.

I still have a sealed Deep Shadows And Brilliant Highlights Finnish Special Limited Edition and the original Finnish Razorblade Romance vinyl coming, but that CD would've been the icing on the cake. :-\

Yep, that was me, haha! :)

I used the money I got back from my tickets, so "technically" I only paid like $12 or less.

So many fakes are on Amazon, I tried ordering the limited edition RR ( Not from the same seller of course ) twice, and they were both fake. Its so easy for someone to upload and use a fake image of the product.

I've gotten some real bargains on Amazon, (Wicked Game LP for $20, The Sacrament single part 2 for $1) but you sometimes have to take a few risks. I've bought three RR digis until I finally got a non copy protected version!

I just received the RR digi today that I bought from a seller on ebay and when I put it in the computer, windows media player won't play it, itunes won't either (and they both show the length of the last track to be 20 minutes long), but it does play in my regular cd player...Is this a fake?

Probably its not, they used one kind of protection that made them unplayable in many players, and computer to avoid  copy them
If your cd it have the first line starting with actung, your cd is the copyprotected version, the more common and givethose problems

If i want to play thad digipack i have to use my non copyprotection version

But dont worry, yor cd its a real copy

Thank you very much...I always worry about getting fakes because I never know which sellers to trust. I would really like to find a non copy protected version also...any suggestions on how to find one?

It took me FOREVER to find a non copy protected version. I just kept checking auctions that had actual photos of the CD, and eventually, I found one.  This is why I have 3 of the copy protected digis...cos I kept buying them hoping to get the "right" one, haha!

I'll do that...It's funny because this auction had a big photo of the actual disk, but I just didn't know what to look for...Live and learn . ;)

Can I ask another question here about HIM stuff? I have been collecting intermittently and sporadically for a few years now- and there's a lot of stuff I don't have and am not sure how legit it is. I love the database you guys have because it helps me keep track of what I'm looking for. 

So my question is this- because I didn't see it on the database - is the Join Me single I keep seeing on eBay with the McDonald's logo real?  Did they really stuff that in Mickey D bags over in Europe at some point?  And is it the song with the video?

Yes, the Join Me McDonalds Logo CD is real. This was released in Portugal only. I'm not sure if the video is on there, i believe it's only the song.
It's a promo cd.

Did anyone order the blue, double LP for the XX Two Decades of Love Metal from The End Records?  I keep seeing them listed on eBay and I'm wondering how they can do that since the release date was pushed back to August for the States..... was it available somehow through another distributor for Europe?

Also, I am seeing vinyl copies of TOT for sale as well in Europe - did they release a standard vinyl for the album or does anyone know if those are the colored vinyls? 

I've been trying to add promotional/tour posters to my collection for some reason lately.  Ha!  I cannot for the life of me PRY myself off trolling eBay...... :-\

You're seeing the double regular black vinyls, or the double blue ones? I've only seen the black ones on there. I pre-ordered from The Omega Order a shit long time ago for the blue ones. They keep pushing the date back. Was supposed to released at the end of June. The 24th, I believe.

And yes, there is a regular black vinyl for TOT as well, just like with Two Decades, except the TOT is a single vinyl instead of a double. If the TOT, or the Two Decades for that matter, don't say anything about a color, they're just the normal ones.

Thanks Cory! I appreciate the info. Hmm, now that you mention it, it must have been the regular LP's on there for XX. I didn't realize there were regular vinyl versions for both TOT and XX.  Just something else for me to friggin collect, ha!

I did get an email today that my XX blue LP's were shipped so hopefully yours will be on the way too!

Thanks again for the clarification!

One of my execs at work asks me on a regular basis what new HIM things I've bought. Sometimes I feel like I'm letting him down when there isn't anything.
