The new John Lennon box set is going to cost HOW MUCH?

Over the years, I’ve seen some expensive box sets. The Pixies had one that retailed for around $800. There was Guns N’ Roses package that sold for close to $1500. This one, however, sets a new record.

The estate of John Lennon is ready with a new box set for his Mind Games album. It will include:

  • Two limited edition reproduction artworks by John and Yoko along with certificates of authenticity
  • A hologram-engraved EP
  • 9 LPs (including two Zoetrope picture discs)
  • 6 CDs
  • 2 Blu-rays
  • 2 books
  • 4 posters
  • 2 maps
  • 3 badges
  • A word puzzle
  • “Bespoke I-Ching coins”
  • The official flag of Nutopia (John and Yoko’s mythical microstate)
  • A Nutopian seal stamp
  • A Nutopian Embassy replica plaque

How much? About US$1300 or CAD$1771. In Australia, it will have a retail price of–wait for it AUS$2599.
