Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

They found more sets!?

https://monkeesstore.warnermusic.com...s-blu-ray.html
It is over $200 with shipping but cheaper than recent $800 dollar prices on ebay.

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I’m tempted, but feel like I’ve been burned every time I pay even close to that amount for media.

I want to buy it, but I'm not sure if I want to buy it enough to spend $200.

Rhino must have found a bunch of them based on the way they're prominently promoting it with a splash ad on their website.

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I'm tempted mostly for the inclusion of 'HEAD' which is going for 60-80 bucks by itself.
Saw a post saying that of the first 10k sets, they only sold about half, then 'lost' the other half. Maybe they've been found?
Someone else mentioned some quality issues with the set but I don't know details.

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I think this will be the last chance ever to get it for a reasonable price. Rhino was a music label that always stuck to shockingly limited production runs for their premium items. Their Rhino Handmade boutique label products are outrageously priced on the secondary market.

Despite being a fan of their music, I only have passing familiarity with the TV show. Never seen more than a handful of episodes.

I was at a Micky Dolenz show this past Saturday night and they were selling them in the merch booth.

My set arrived damaged way back when. Itís not a huge deal but the box itself isnít made very well. Anyone on the fence should grab it though. Itís a good set.
Regarding Head, I had no idea it was a rarity anymore. I have in in that Criterion box as well.

If I didn't own that Criterion set, the inclusion of Head would be a big selling point for me.

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I wonder if they repackaged the set after fixing the quality-control issues before selling them now.


Here's a link from 2016 that details the damages and missing/bad discs and responses from people who purchased it:

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I did a quick check to see if they're charging shipping... yep. $8. With sales tax I'd pay an extra $25 for this already overpriced set. How can they justify charging shipping for a $200 set?

Yeah that’s frustrating with Rhino. I’ve bought some pricy shit direct over the years and they never throw it in.

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

I bought it. I had always regretted not buying myself a copy and once it sold out, I had even considered just nabbing some bootlegs but always waited, hoping it would be re-released.

Knowing my luck, these remaining ones are being released right before a 4K or budget release announcement of them.

I was actually thinking of buying another copy. One for myself and one to sell when these run out. One set sold on eBay in Feb for $1200!!! And most others were selling in the +/- $750 range! The price has already cratered on eBay right now but is still selling in the $400 range. Can you imagine being the guy who bought their copy for $1200 and then seeing it for $200 just two months later?!?! I would likely have a heart attack.

I got mine off the Monkees site. They have a bundle which throws in a T-shirt for 5 extra bucks. Total with tax and shipping for it was $233.39.

Hate to say it, but I think that's what's going to happen.

I noticed the product description says, "This collection is strictly limited to 10,000 individually numbered boxes and once those are sold out, this edition and bonus disc will never be available again.".

So, it wouldn't surprise me if a new, budget-priced set is on the way.

How many of those 10K do you think have sold? Like most folks I'd be shocked if it's more than a few thousand at $150-200 each from a single vendor.

Most folks aren't expecting a Budget release until the LE is sold out (or mostly gone).

I don't disagree with you, but why in the world would they sit on possibly thousands of copies for years while the aftermarket prices are selling for 4 to 5 times the cost of the normal price? Makes zero sense.

I really wish they would re-release the Handmade Limited Editions of their albums. I missed several of them the first go around and now the two I haven;t been able to acquire for a sensible price (their first album and The Birds And The Bees) go for hundreds of dollars.

Limited Editions are bullshit. Let the people have what they want. So dumb...

Limited Editions bring out FOMO and help ensure people will purchase products at inflated prices rather than wait for a sale.

Thank's to everyone for posting about the newly found sets. I was going to spend $500.00 for a set off of e-bay.
Sincerely,
Tom

I seriously doubt they were sitting on them intentionally. There are several variations out there about why it's been missing for over 2 years, but someone
the Indiana Jones explanation is about as reasonable as any -- i.e. all or significant portions of the items buried/mislabelled/lost somewhere in the warehouse or facilities.

There's really no good reason for Rhino or Warner to intentionally hide them unless they were the one's selling them on Ebay which doesn't seem likely.
The touring Monkees band (Mike and Micky Show now down to Micky Celebrates....) apparently had access to at least a certain number of copies they were selling at (or as part) of the concerts though I'm not sure
how many those would sell

Yes, I tried to get the money together and did not have enough time. It is indeed out of stock again. Maybe a similar set will be re-released and not be a limited edition in the future. OR it's back again to e-bay.

maybe they will release a non-limited edition version in the future? fans for years to come will probably want this... unless there are valid/legal issues...

Re: Monkees Limited Blu ray set back in stock

Most Rhino stuff stays limited, unfortunately. I believe it's tied to clearances and licensing rights, which aren't cheap. Knowing the market, I don't think we'll get a general release of this set.
