    Initially, there was talk of a barebones release after the SDE.

    Yes, I recall hearing that as well...

    I hope it happens for those that want a bare-bones release, but something tells me that ship has sailed.

    Just so folks know, the Blu-ray set is NOT being sold during the current Micky Dolenz/Felix Cavaliere tour, though the the ‘Celebrates The Monkee’ T-shirt is available.

    I ordered one which hasn’t arrived yet but I am a little concerned as a friend of mine got his yesterday with a big dinged corner - no padding inside the mailer!

    Well, 48 of us purchased it this go 'round.

    I wonder if these sets are sets that didn't get sold at Micky's Monkees Tribute shows, or if these, and those sold at the shows, were all from the same stash they discovered?

    I found out that a friend on the forum missed out, we saw him this weekend and sold it to him for what it cost us. We both came out happy. (Sometimes you meet the nicest people here.)

    I just now saw this poll. There's probably a lot of people who bought it that never bother coming into Marketplace discussions. I'm curious how many more were made (or found, assembled, whatever) and sold too.

    For me, I bought it when I first heard this time around. My brother told me. I didn't buy it the first time around because I'm really not that much into television quality, HD, and that whole thing. I mainly wanted the bonus content. Plus a lot of people were upset by the things that were supposed to be on it but were not.

    After so many years of people saying how good it really is and seeing those Ebay prices, of course I need it now. I have all the super deluxe cd box sets... just makes sense. I have a little more money now too. I think I was in the middle of moving and other things back then. Plus there was rumor of a dvd version. I'm pretty sure Sandoval even hinted at that.

    For what it's worth, when I started this thread/poll, I had it in the Visual Arts forum, but the powers that be moved it to Marketplace discussions. I'd tend to agree with you though, that it may have gotten more traction where I originally posted it, but what can ya do?

    Now I see that 52 of us bought at least one set when they were made available again...

    In a different thread, someone mentioned that they ordered something like 10 all together, I wonder if the other potential flipper bought as many?

    We bought our copy at the final Micky Dolenz Tribute To The Monkees show, #06102. Everything is intact. So glad we got it. Our friend who we passed our extra copy to has said his set is perfect, too.

    Missed the poll deadline, but I bought another set this time, received it a week ago or so. Keeping it sealed. Such an incredible improvement over the worn out, spotty DVD prints.

    I remember attending a Monkees Convention in Bridgeport Connecticut in 1982, it was washed out VHS prints and Tork going "No, not much unreleased stuff" (laughter)...and Bill Chadwick attending.

    I bought one. Quality is far beyond the DVD sets and not just in terms of resolution. The color is perfectly balanced. No more washed out looking episodes.

    The booklet on mine was messed up. Pages out of order, some pages missing some duplicates. I contacted Rhino and asked if they could send a new one. They were not able to but refunded $50. Now I don’t even feel too bad about the price.

    I know my enjoyment of the series is tied deeply to childhood nostalgia, but so what? I’ve been having a blast watching the set.

    At least Rhino gave you a discount. Luckily my booklet seems good on my newly purchased set from the Micky Aprill '22 tour. I still haven't made time to watch any of the BR. Work and life keep getting in the way.

    ...And just five years later, the 'Missing Links' series started, and then the deluxe editions of the first four, and then the super deluxe editions...

    I remember Tork tap dancing after title after title on unreleased stuff was thrown at him. I've never figured out why he said that. And super super deluxe are next. The new fans aged 10-14 will eat up The Monkees.
