  1. 20th anniversary led

    I agree Steve, I've only seen the blue flyer. A flyer is way to easy to reproduce. I can't even see a real flyer going for more than a $1.00 due to non demand and how easy it is to reproduce. The $1.00 is probably on the high side of value, but for a $1.00 a copy could be a placeholder in a collection until a blue one becomes available. Robert
  2. 20th anniversary led

    The flyers are worth no more than a $1.00 each to someone who is looking for one. I just picked up some items from the 20th anniversary (unused poster, four used and unused tickets, three keychains, a program, and a shirt) and I'm looking for a flyer and a bag, although both are not a high priority for me. I usually see the flyers on blue paper. If you would like to sell a flyer or two for a $1.00 each please let me know. Good luck. Robert
  3. An exhibition of sorts was done back in 1995 on the Page / Plant tour. There's been several conventions of course and the Knebworth house exhibit. The 1995 tour memorabilia truck had some of Brian Knapp's collection shown. I've uploaded the video walkthrough which you can see by clicking on the links below: I doubt Page would let items such as the Les Paul's and suits out of the Tower house even if heavily insured based on what happened to the Black Beauty all those years ago for an exhibit. At least the guitar was finally returned after all these years. I enjoy collecting and seeing what memorabilia has survived through the years. Ever onward. Robert
  4. The Amsterdam footage can be seen without the sub titles on disc two of the Cosmic Energy dvd "Assemblage" from 2006. One has to wonder what other lost footage is out there waiting to be discovered. Robert
  5. Fantastic as always! This would fit nicely with the acoustic set from the '77 tour, coupled with Bron-Y-Aur Stomp. I'll check out the CD when it is released. Robert
  6. Star Wars for me, but I'm biased. Robert
  7. I'm in Connecticut and cd's and stereo's do quite well. It could be a generational thing though. I have a basic stereo setup and still utilize a portable cd player and walkman. My friend who owns a music store started selling turntables again. I was at Best Buy and there was a whole aisle devoted to stereo systems. Hopefully someone will be able to make a deal for your cd's. Good luck. Robert
  8. R.I.P. Jason. You created a marvelous hotel. You will be missed. Robert
  9. Reunited at least on a forum. Robert
  10. While searching regarding the topic I found a post made by swandown in the thread titled "Jimmy Page On This Day (Archive)" on August 17, 2011 page 16 that reads "I read way back in 1995 that it was changed because Y'allah translated to "Oh God" in certain dialects". Robert
  11. I'll dig through past issues of the magazines I have from around that time frame to see if I can find an explanation. I know "Yallah" was retitled to "The Truth Explodes" when the initial VHS tape was released in 1995. There is a notation in the guitar tab transcription book for No Quarter that was released in 1996 that states that the then updated title of "The Truth Explodes" was "released in some territories using a different title" So the change was made long before the tenth anniversary reissue. Robert
  12. Hi Staci! Congrats on the book! I hope everything is going well. Did you end up selling all of your collection or do you still have some items left over? I'll pick up a copy of the book. 8>) I'll see if I can locate some sites that you may be able to promote the book on. Have a good one. Robert
  13. Select the hyperlink I included above to check out the LP, the bow, and the vox petal. Generally, it's more difficult to sculpt a human face than an animal or fantasy creature. Overall, the custom is well done. One has to remember the size of the piece. What's involved. Sculpting out of clay, wax, creating a hardcopy etc. For me Serang's custom puts the 2007 KnuckleBonz Jimmy Page Rock Iconz statue to shame. NECA's version was pretty good. The sculptor has to take into account the shrinkage when the piece goes into production and detail gets lost etc. If one looks compares hardcopy next to an engineering pilot for example you can see the size difference between the two and see that some detail gets lost. The poppy suit seems to give the effect of a slimmer frame on the body. The outfits are extremely well done. To each their own. Robert
  14. For Those interested: http://serang.tistory.com/category/Art Shop https://www.facebook.com/kimserang You have to register to view the thread but here's the thread to when Serang was working on the pieces: http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/custom-creations/116547-serangs-obg14-dragon-suit-final-black-suit-updated.html I did save the images from the thread back in 2013. There's some great pics. I can post them if anyone would like to see them. Robert
  15. That's Serang Kim's creation if I recall correctly. I remember when Serang was posting his creation progress on a forum a long time ago (roughly 2013?). The limited editions were expensive. The poppy suit with scarf is pretty cool. The Les Paul came out really well too! Robert
