Go Hero made a 1000 of these as a special reproduction run in 2008. I just snagged one for a stupid price ($140.49)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/322579165198

And it's... 0062/1000 (matching stamps on gun and case)

I'd have guessed a team of at least 15 to 20....
Unless you have a team of curators too of course?!

Loving the latest ray gun too, I'd like one of these one day.

Did anyone pre-order the new red logo t-shirt from the UK store? It said nothing would be shipped til after the 19th June, yet that's nearly a month ago now.

The ray gun is brilliant

You are going to have to contact live nation customer services. In the past when I have had to contact them they were shit. I hope things have improved.

I read on the facebook group (YKYAFFFW) and someone had asked about it - apparently they hadn't received the stock for everything yet - I assume it's all getting shipped from the US as to why it's taken so long

I'm wondering if any surplus tour stock will make it onto the online store?

They usually do add things but as this was a euro tour with no UK date I'm not 100% sure any shirts will make it to the UK store.

You seem to have forgotten about Glastonbury.

Touche!

I did see the Glasto shirt on the UK store briefly but it's gone now so fingers crossed.

Thanks all. I'll drop them an email I think, see what's happening. I ordered it as soon as it went up, so would be a bit annoying if I had to wait.

The amount of stuff on the new shop is shockingly bad.

24.99 is certainly waaay less than you'll ever pay on eBay - and it seems posters unlike clothing are also much more reasonable to post overseas from the UK store too. 3.90 inside the UK and only 6.88 all the way to NZ.

Hard to say how many they have. I got no 13 on eBay, but I also saw at least one numbered around 120 sold. Since they usually sell them in number order that would indicate less than 30 since there were 150 (and we must be talking the signed gig variant here). Of course they could also have held the first ten for band/management.

Which I think does confirm that most of what they are selling is coming direct from the US.

They definitely arent snowed under with orders. Today 14th July my UK order number is under 3000. 2nd Jun I placed an early order on the US store that was under 2000 and on the 20th Jun my C&G order numbers were just over 16000 - and that's almost a month ago. So doesn't seem to have been anything like as much interest in the new album or its merch in the UK based on that.

Speaking of Frome - someone that held onto two of the free Pink/Black CAG gig luggage tags had them snapped up at 35 each this week. They went fast enough to say they'd almost certainly have gotten more.

My t-shirt order was 1041, so quite early! I'd guess most of the of those afterwards are album pre-orders.

Email sent, will see what they say.

Im guessing it's simply an arrival issue rather than a "shipping to you" issue - fingers crossed!

I will say I'm significantly more impressed with Live Nation (with this store anyway) than I've ever been before. Parcels are shipped tight in the most minimal space which is super important for volume issues with intl reshipper agents like what I use, and the postage rates on volume in the US are incredibly good.

Most importantly, US shipments have ZERO pricing data on the invoice - you get actual unit volume only - so there is nothing to trap customs on a declared price even if they open everything and look hard.

I'm pretty much good here anyway as our limit is around $270 US, but it may deff help UK folk looking at items a chunk cheaper in the US store. Only your stupid low C&E rates will be the real issue - but it might make some stuff a bit cheaper of at least worth looking at when it's not in the UK store at all.

I snapped up one of them, thought it was a fair price. And luckily it was 'Buy It Now'. It arrived yesterday. A really cool item. How exactly were they given out at the gig? I was unable to attend on the night but saw it live on YouTube.

They were handed out as we were exiting the venue.
