update on the vinyl collectors box!!!!
« on: April 18, 2009, 01:46:38 AM »
Those of you who were lucky enough to receive one of the free U2 Collector's Edition Boxes sent out in February, this new 7" is part two of the set. We were completely over subscribed with orders for the free boxes, and only 6,000 were manufactured, all of these have now been sent out. Sorry if you didn't make the lucky 6,000,

just had that sent to me via u2.com!

As far as i know nobody off here has recieved one ???????

I agree - I didn't get one and have been searching ebay regularly to no avail. Something fishy going on here...

As far as I am aware, these were sent to UK residents only.

Unfortunately they didn't send an e-mail if your address was not in the UK. 

The same applied to the promotional collector wallets they gave out for each of the singles from "Bomb".

Nobody over at 'interference' has received one either and none have shown up on ebay, so I would say they have defo not been sent out.  ???

7" Collectors Boxes - WHERE are they????

Allegedly the UK record company sent out 6,000 of these to 6,000 lucky winners in February. No-one that I know of in the U2 collecting community has received one nor has one ever appeared on EBAY. WHERE ARE THEY????? Do They exist?

I live in the US, and I wish they'd been more specific when the sign-up period was around.

I sent off for one as soon as I got the email but haven't heard a peep back about them since. I assumed cos I wasn't selected to receive one. I live in the London btw so if it's a UK only offer then I've got a wee chance of getting one.

It seems we failed because they were supposed to give them out before Get on Your Boots was released!
