Won't buy this, but there are some really cool colors.

NOTE: If you are not happy with the final manufactured colored of the vinyl records, and it didn't match your expectations or photo samples released during pre-orders, FUCK OFF! It's hard enough running an independent label.

Guy running this sounds like a huge dick. I understand he has a tough job, but why the hell would you buy from someone like this? He could say the exact same thing without telling his customers to fuck off.

Personally I think the Obi-Wan looks super sick.

How exactly does this work? Did he get the rights from the original record label or whatever? I don't really know how soundtracks/scores work necessarily but this seems kind of odd coming from an independent label.

That's fine, but you come across as a seller who doesn't give a flying fuck about the customer. Why not put a disclaimer such as "due to the special coloring process, your record will be unique and will likely vary from the picture" instead? The "fuck off" in capital letters is very aggressive and confrontational to someone you want to give you money.

That said, the final product looks fucking awesome. And nice work getting the license. I imagine that was a nightmare.

One of the best climax pieces ever written for a soundtrack...it's a shame the movie is such a god-awful heap of cat-vomit. Swill upon swill.

Surprised to see so many people excited about this. Then again, maybe the soundtrack is more epic than I remember- I wouldn't know, I've watched the movie as little as possible given how it's such a fucking eye-sore.
