That's definitely a store so either he held some of his allocation back for your sales or was just hoping he'd have some left over. Given his feedback rating and how badly negs hit them I'd guess, and hope for your sakes, it was the former. Even though it's again, not the correct spirit of the day.

As I knew I couldn't get to a store early enough I ordered a copy off ebay from the US and sent the seller a message asking if he managed to get a badge could he send that too. Unfortunately he didn't end up getting the record but he did get a badge and is sending me that anyway, I just have to pay postage.
Pretty nice of the him, he could have just refunded my money and left it at that

I've ordered one off a uk seller on ebay now. It's expensive but the collection needs it.

Record Store Day has become nothing but a cash grab for the record companies and the flippers. I don't know what the record store owners' margin is, but I talked with the owner at one of the stores here in my hometown and he said that he basically has to go into severe debt just to buy the stock. If it doesn't get moved then he would have to file for bankruptcy and shut the store down. Luckily for him, it keeps getting bigger and bigger but you have to think at some point it will tail off and correct itself. It usually always does.

Once word got out a few years ago about how much flippers were making then a lot of people started doing it and it became a day for people to try and get a quick cash grab. They have to spend the night at the store and get up early and they turn it into a profit. People were lining up a full day before at one of the local stores here.

I got to the local store here at 9 AM. Last year I got there at 8 AM. Store opens at 10 AM. The line was twice as long this time with being just an hour late. Probably 200-250 people in front of me. My local store didn't get many of the Foos at all. They request a certain amount and rarely get what they request. I go to try and get a few things and watch the bands play that day and not get worked up over what I didn't get. If I find it on ebay for what I consider a decent price, I get it. As long as there is demand, there will be flippers.

This is what I find ridiculous though. These were free. However, I never saw any. People snatched them up to probably put them on ebay.

$32.45 for a free pin + $2 shipping.

Good Lord.

In fairness it looks like they were US only, and even then many stores didn't get any. So while I cant say for sure I very much doubt the stores that DID get them had very many at all. And they aren't being listed in huge numbers either.

And that example, well, if it goes to that by bids alone then I hate to say it but that's just the bidders declaring how stupid they are since there were and are and will be buy now listings of the same item for way way less.

I mean in 11 seconds I found one for $8.00

Apart from the pin, the same design was used in a sticker that was given away at the Niles gig. Possibly elsewhere maybe. And no I aint buying it at that price either lol.

NOT FOO RELATED
Anyone in A/NZ who is near a JB HiFi... Wellington City store has had in Metallica No Life Til Leather RSD cassettes today selling at $19.95 NZ. Seems unlikely it would be just our store. Very limited numbers.

Yeah, and that's what is comical. Do a simple completed listings search and you can see what they're selling for. They'll be selling in the $5-10 range or even less eventually. People are stupid.

According to the RSD list, there were 10,000 of those made which is quite a lot for a RSD item. They were $9.99 at the store I was at, but they were gone by the time I got in.

Yeah well we are talking NZ dollars - so around 43 pence or something Yeah you're right i knew how many there were, it's totally deliberate, Metallica wanted to fully flood all requirement, but I guess even then they will have failed. There will no doubt be people sitting on 10 plus copies waiting to resell them.

Funniest part of that is even Lars said he reckoned it was cool to do and made a really nice thing for collectors to hold and for some younger people to get exactly how a tape was made up etc... and that he really hoped that the 12 people who c/would actually play it really enjoyed it

I'm so happy that my local record store owner is such a nice guy.
he only had one copy on this and one copy of the white stripes reissue.

He put both aside for me. I was there early on saturday so he let me in through the back door of the store. with just him. Such a nice experience.

And i only paid 11 for the Foo's 10"

It's nice to hear some of us getting to experience RSD the way it is meant to be / used to be.

And look just a little bit more often is the other key too, and a little bit wider. Then you see the other stuff that isn't exactly what you were looking for but is better:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/151656096521
Dave's pin, the RSD pin, the RSD flyer and both the RSD Promo CDs. $13.50 with free shipping.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/381232657150
Apparently there was RSD release flyer version of Dave's Ambassador statement complete with his seal in gold (like wax).

Fair enough & nothing wrong with that. Some of us are just crazy as is often pointed out to me - I don't try and deny it - hardly any point now anyway
