Breck was kind enough to send me some photo’s of the Signed Salival he recieved in the mail today…
For those of you who missed the Signed Salival Sale the other day, and still have US$200 burning a hole in your wallet, a Collectors Set available at the CoSM website is for you. Featuring copies of the Vicarious and Parabola DVD signed by Adam, as well as the Revolver Tool issue signed by both Adam and Alex.
Presumably limited so don’t miss out!
To no ones surprise the Signed Salival DVD‘s sold on on Toolarmy for US$200 at around 4:00 PST in less than a minute. Vuduchild (who was lucky enough to score one) sent me this pic which was posted on Toolarmy:
Let the bitching about the price of an item you weren’t forced to buy commence…
Blair posted an update for Toolarmy members desperate for the signed Salival DVD‘s today, mentioning that it’s unlikely to go on the market until after 3:00PM LA time, and that “MERCH” loves Italian, and will probably take the budget right down to the last penny. I take that to mean that he’s not planning to take our budgets to their last penny, more that it’ll be similar to the original price of the item (somewhere in the area of US$50 from memory).
For anyone trying to get a copy – good luck, I’d expect the web site to be extremely busy around that time, so be patient. If you/re not serious about buying the merch at all, I’d suggest avoiding the site altogether. Personally I’d like one, but will be out at a Xmas part today, so probabyl won’t be around when the goods hit the store. If anyone wants to buy me one for Xmas the feel free!
A Toolarmy Exclusive post today from Blair revealed that a hidden stash of Salival DVD‘s has been found in the Tool warehouse, and that 33 of these have been signed by the band recently and will be sold to Toolarmy members this Xmas. These DVD’s (price unknown at the moment) will go on sale in the Toolarmy Bazaar sometime this Friday.
According to Blair’s description:
unlike the earlier ones, this time each DVD was individually SIGNED BY ALL FOUR BAND MEMBERS (with Adam also providing some original art ‘doodles’ on many of the cases).
“no”, this is not “the big thing.”
Apparently pictures, pricing and shipping details will be posted soon.
Amer emailed me the other day, letting me know that he’s being forced to part with his signed copy of the “stupendously rare” (his words not mine!) Cesaro Summability picture disc. Apparently only 25 of these signed items exist in the world, so for you die hard collectors this sounds like a great opportunity to open your wallets and grab a copy.
Current bidding on Ebay puts it at $222 + shipping, and the auction has another six days remaining. Amer mentions he’d rather this go to a genuine Tool fan rather than a re-seller, so check it out!
Justin mailed me links to a couple of videos from the upcoming Guitar Hero: World Tour release. They feature two players in a drum-off to the Tool songs Parabola and Vicarious. Enjoy!
I’ve been back up in Queensland this week, so things have been a little slow on updates for Fourtheye. Things should return to normal next week. Here’s a couple of items that have come across my desk:
For those that have missed the various comments, there is an interview of Maynard done by Patton Oswalt. Check it out here.
Ryan tells me that he’s selling his Signed Lateralus Vinyl on eBay. Bids started at $0 so it’s quite cheap at the moment. Don’t expect it to remain that way though!! EDIT: Link has been changed to a relisted auction!
Finally, Blair has posted on Toolband/Army about the recently discovered Salival Vinyl. He assures us it is a bootleg and in now way officially sanctioned by the band. Buyers beware! He also mentions that there are no plans for 10,000 Days vinyl, but if and when he hears there there are, he will post it.
