    From BS on the MP homepage:

    "To make sure none of you will lose sleep over not getting your hands on a copy, you’ll all be able to (pre-)order your copies in the MP webshop: we have made a first print run that we think is big enough to satisfy demand, but will do another ASAP if we run out before all your needs are sated. So not to worry: everybody will get a copy eventually!"

    Edit: "quotes"

    Yes, I picked up a copy. It's heavy, beautiful and sealed. Only had cash for one, so haven't opened it, since I promised to pick it up for a friend.

    Probable Pratchett prank (haha - ppp means something else to us, doesn't it?), so let's call it Assumed Pratchett Connection

    The Light Fantastic is Pratchett's second novel in the Discworld series - btw.: isn't MP's next disc to be called "The World"? - ok, ok, back to topic: Together with its predecessor this book is rather not the one masterfully structured plot but a sometimes hectic combination of adventures that do both follow and satirize traditional fantasy adventure tales, introducing a few major and several minor characters that would play roles in the seemingly endless evolution of the Discworld series. Substitute fantasy with Rock'n'Roll and Pratchett with Motorpsycho and you will see the title is obviously quite fitting for this new collection.

    If you want to grab it on the tour, take a little extra money with you! It’s no bargain, about 40,-€

    Back from Paradiso-Noord, sitting on my couch and reading the "catalogue" of "MP-merchandise" that comes with the album, and doing my best not to wake up my wife, not because I'm giving the record a spin, but because of the waves of laughter erupting from reading this genius comical booklet!!!
    Yes, our revered rockmeisters have a great sense of humor, and can laugh at themselves as well.
    Great!

    Just for the record, BS is a big fan of Terry Pratchett. And the package looks fantastic. Have seen it but havent got a copy yet.

    You guys are talking about the two color versions of the jetplane, right?
    By the way, I wish those fake MP albums in the catalogue were for real! (live in Japan)

    There are two versions. One is clear and one is black. Don't know how many copies total, but it's 50/50 copies.

    @ Tomcat: my both copies look the same from outside.

    Two songs and five pages in, it's already worth it.

    At last! One that I won't miss out on!

    Feeling a bit neglected in the UK as this tour proceeds. I can't get to the mainland because of caring responsibilities, so no chance of picking up goodies like these at gigs.

    Very pleased the shop has stocked this one.

    Now, how about the Demon Box Live blu-ray and album?
