    Pics? Can we see the labels, or the run-out groove matrix numbers maybe?

    Given what I've been told ("the listing is not legit") but trusting your judgment, and perhaps influenced by seeing a post on the Puscifer subreddit of someone getting a transparent red vinyl copy of the Existential Reckining remix album that's been pushed back, I think it's entirely in the realm of possibility that someone in fulfillment somewhere messed up. There's also the fact that the Watchmen vinyl popped up in random record stores well before there was greater immediate availability.

    I would love to see photos when you get the chance!

    Packaging looks a bit different. It still looks great but I like what they sent out before.

    I must have not looked at the inside very closely last time pictures were posted or, more likely, I didn't realize it wasn't a stock image, but seeing that TR/AR drawing made me laugh just now.

    Wow, it's surprising that any of these snuck out like this. Looks like it's a box, right? Not as cool as the promo version, but pressing those 1940s album-style packages would definitely not be worth it in the volume this will sell at so it makes sense. Instant buy once they hit nin.com.

    Itís a hinged box with a fabric spine and REZNOR AND ROSS stamped into the spine in silver foil. The box is also made to look worn and old.

    That's pretty great.

    The promo version that was out before had, what, a folio-style cover that the record sleeves fit into? The hinged box is also kind of fitting as a throwback.

    I wonder how on earth this managed to find its way out?! Really pleased to see its getting a release though as its nice to actually own a physical copy of the music we love.

    This looks like a great physical package. Hope they release a PDF of the artwork for posterity's sake.

    wish one would magically appear on my doorstep.

    also, that mangled hype sticker is giving my collector OCD all sorts of issues.

    Please, Santa: make it happen.

    Surely you can break into some storage facility somewhere, whatever. I believe in you.

    Went to Plaid Room today, got the full scoop.

    So the distributor accidentally sent plaid room 5 copies and then when they sold them, the label put an embargo on the stuff. Trent personally called up the record distributor to yell at them lmao. Plaid room didn't know they weren't supposed to be sold. There were no more copies

    Probably the release date. Generally speaking once a release date for a record is decided upon, they stick to it.

    The weird part is the caginess around the release date. In my experience embargoed media always shipped with HOLD FOR [date] stickers on the outside of the box and they were never supposed to have mixed street dates. Everything in that box you'd hold for that particular date. Sometimes there would be fuckups from the distributor but it was rare. Plaid Room has a good rep...if they got a mixed box and their system had no street date entered they're gonna sell that every day of the week.

    With that said, if the distributor got a shipment of Mank vinyl and their system logged no street date from the label it's no wonder the copies were shipped in a mixed box. We've got to move these refrigerators...

    Yeah, I get it, but as a label you're letting product out into the wild (aka sent to a distributor) with no [apparent] street date published. That's asking for trouble.

    What happened to this vinyl release? Delayed again?
    They have the stock, what are they waiting for?
