Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this was all just only added to the Foo site in the last 12 hours or so. They should be running a count on the sales automatically, and there is no mention of any kind of ballot to get Deluxe versions with or without the lithograph, so if they take your money and confirm your order - you have one. It should be that simple. When they are gone it should say sold out at some stage of the purchase process. Being day one everyone till now should be inside the first 500 (rough guess).

First in first served is how these things usually work unless otherwise stated. They are running through an e-commerce merchant (AND then Paypal), so they wont want to be messing everyone around with refunds etc. Paypal has already debited my account for the funds, which is definitely confirmation of a transaction of sale occurring.

If you can do it, or find someone that will back you and do it for you in the meantime I'd get onto it asap. Apart from being one of the coolest sets of Foo collectibles yet, its value alone will increase over night once they are sold out (not that anyone here would sell theirs - or should).

Soon as the idiot traders are aware they will disappear for Ebay sales - and trust me I can see $400 plus all over these in no time at all.

I will probably steal your birthday present idea! Just ordered mine

Will the vinyl that comes with this be any different than the one you can order at Amazon DE? If not, I'll just cancel my preorder there..

The Vinyl will be the US pressing, the A-DE will be the EU pressing, so yes they will be "different" but they will have the same songs.

Those of us that are mad about vinyl will be buying both, you will just have to decide whether you need both versions. Arguably the German pressing will be of a slightly better quality, but this is actually very much dependent on which US company presses the US copies. Some US vinyl has been really good in the last 12 months. In either case the difference isn't great and you'd be perfectly happy playing the US version that will come with the deluxe package.

those are awesome packages and great special editions, but my preordering capabilities are under serious doubt as of now, if I don't get more work soon enough I don't even know if I can preorder the regular CD.
You could give up a few unnecessary things for a while like I am - like eating

Delivery to the UK is $40. There's an option for $100 delivery too. I fully expect Dave to hand deliver it!

This is what credit cards are for...

Delivery was only $17.50 to the uk when i did mine last night. Will have to pay import vat and royal mail handling fee thouh but it'll be worth it

Still a little apprehensive about whether or not im one of the 500, i really hope it comes up sold out soon (after everyone here gets it) so that it can kind of confirm that i'll be getting it

Worth taking the risk dad said it sounded like a great package and happy for it to be birthday present said he was expecting me to say it was $250 so really i got a bargin!

WOW! I think I'm going to buy the CD pre-order package - a birthday present from me to me. Is there a limit on those too?

And can somebody update me on that 2 CD-version? I haven't had the time to check this board properly lately...
