Would you like a tenner wager Fu Machu sells out quicker than Five Tall Tales did?

Sorry everyone, rant over!
Don't worry it's NRW!

You know it's National rant week. I guess everyone's entitled to one good rant, huh?

Find out anymore about HMV?

I've been raiding Fopp the last week for any lurking OOP titles...

So far managed:
THE ANDERSON TAPES
THE LAST DETAIL
THE COLLECTOR
CHINA SYNDROME

No.
They can't even order titles that are still in print.
Fopp's the same.
Get the same answer;'If it's a Ltd Ed. then we can't order it in.'
When you check their site for the same specific titles they're listed as out of stock.

No doubt they owe PH money.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason there's no Nucleus,Eureka or Screenbound new releases in their stores anymore.

Oh well PH direct then!

You get them early anyway!

Could be.
I remember Almar or Marc Morris (Not sure which) saying that small labels made about four quid an item selling in HMV and that was years ago.

Christ knows what percentage they want now.
They're the ONLY bricks and mortar outlets left to sell 'boutique label' products.

Why not? I'd be only too happy to lose, because Five Tall Tales sold out pretty quickly for a 6,000-strong multi-title Indicator box - only a month behind Harryhausen Volume 2 and several months ahead of Hammer Volume 1.

So I'd be delighted if Fu Manchu did better than that - especially since it's region-locked.

Anyway, the record to break is one year and ten months, so that means Fu Manchu will have to sell out before the start of August 2022.
