Re: Boxset secret thread

Not sure why anybody would expect anything different at this point. It's a solid box set though.

Re: Boxset secret thread

Ryan is the king of overhyping things - this is the greatest band I've ever played with has been said about all his bands - remember the boxset 20/20 - the continued hype of black hole - and yeah I was certain he pushed that there was going to be a video game included - but to be cynical - I'm sure he was like forget that when he saw how much money would be cut from his profit - this is the best - this is the greatest - what has Jack been saying all these years about Ryan ...
Has anyone put their Ashes and Fire 3D glasses on lately ?

Re: Boxset secret thread

I know this is probably going to come as a disappointment, but the original promo pictures featured a pinball machine action figure, just a shape with a ? over it.... The fact that it's a PRISONER pinball machine is probably a "secret," along with the color variant of the bonus 45, and the 45 itself, that's three secrets right there. As my moms used to say "three is a collection."

I don't think the colour of the extra 7" is much of a secret thing. The Raconteurs Reissue for Black Friday came in several shades of green to transparent, it's really common. Probably just whatever the plant had available.

Re: Boxset secret thread

So there are definitely more than 12 of the bonus 7"s. I got one, I believe 2 or 3 people on this thread got one, I've seen two on ebay and I see 6 people on Instagram that got one. So he either made it up that there were only 12, to tease us or something, or maybe there are different variants of the 7"? Like different songs or something?

Anyway, there are 100% more than 12 out there.

I agree with a lot of what's being said. It's a great product. It looks great and I'm very happy with it.

However...I really wish he hadn't over-sold it. As a result it's hard not to feel a twinge of disappointment with something that's great. I'm a little flummoxed at the arcade game card. Not sure why that needed a big question mark on the sales photo.

Anyway, it's all a matter of expectation. This is great and I am very happy with it.

Re: Boxset secret thread

I imagine there were hopes to put a real lcd game in the arcade game but it wouldnt be very costeffective to do. Lights, sound, sturdy box, 13 colored discs, 13 sleeves and cut outs is good for the money

I'd guess he's talking about "Lookout"/"The Cold", it came with every boxset as a 13th 7" single.

I know that the extra 7" seems to appear in two different colours but are we are that all the rest are the same colour for everybody? Just wondered if any were mixed up?

Mine matched the Discogs entry exactly. I don't think there are any variants there.

Re: Boxset secret thread

Apparently a secret URL on the bottom of the box under blacklight.

From Twitter:

PRISONER BOXED SET
12 singles, 17 B-Sides
Secret Codes, Hidden Tracks
And a Portal To Forever Summer

This could be the secret code and/or the hidden tracks referred to.

Re: Boxset secret thread

I was just using a flashlight and could still see a URL. Went to the site but there is nothing there. Maybe someone with a blacklight can confirm if they saw a URL that works... I sorta thought it was too easy given everything Ryan's said about how difficult finding the secrets would be..

Shit, you're right. All I get though is a blank page or,

"The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

I only used a torchlight to see it though.

Re: Boxset secret thread

So is the URL maybe just part of it, maybe it's missing something from the end of the URL that is hidden elsewhere or something. I wonder if the videogame is connected to a URL rather than just being a 3D cutout.

Re: Boxset secret thread

Is Agnes named after Agnes Martin? Vincent I assume Van Gogh. What about Theo? Van Doesburg? Thematically (themcatically) I'd think they would all be painters.

To Be Without You is about Theo. Supposedly.. jokingly.. probably.. He is on the sleeve. He seems like the favorite child. I mean there are no favorite children.. but there are.

I think the solution to this particular puzzle might have everything to do with the cats.

Or there's been a mix up with the website.. but that would be such a bummer..
