    Just a funny idea. Why not post our top 5 most wanted Smashing Pumpkins items here, and let each other know how it goes collecting them. Or help each other finding it, for a good price. Post it all here!

    OK, this is my top 5.

    I just grabbed my #6 item, it would/should have been on #5 since I know that the original Mashed Potatoes is an impossible-to-find collectors item:

    I’m searching far and wide currently for the Arising! spaceman poster… if anybody has one of those puppies that perhaps they’ve lost interest in – or is sitting in a drawer somewhere – I would love to display that proudly.

    Just registered over here today, but don’t let my low post count fool ya into thinking I’m a flake. :o

    Why, what is so special about that? Just curious… Since I have nooooo interest in that item at all. :P

  • #42366

    i just saw it once at eBay and it gone around 120 dollars; the seller did not shipped outside USA… F@&kiNG shame!
    please, if you ever see this pretty box… tell me.

  • #42368

    i’ve also seen that one. it didn’t go for $120 but for $300.

  • #42369

    if you really want something, you should consider contacting the seller. a lot of times they don’t mind shipping elsewhere.

    well…what are you waiting for? Do you have anything in particular you really really want?

  • #42387

    i really want that gold gish promo cd. so that would definitely be on the list.

    i’d also like a numbered light into dark cd. i guess these aren’t even that rare or sought after.

    other things on my list right now are just basic collection filler: some of the recent promos and releases. i haven’t been keeping up too well. i guess these ones just aren’t as exciting. comparable to going to the shop and buying some (fairly expensive) milk. i’ve also been put off a bit by the recent fake promos.

    I managed to rid SP from my Blood (collecting-wise), but I still have moments of ‘Wantage’ over the years. :)

    I’d be forever content with the Gish Gold CD and James Iha’s Never Ever Promo CD. I’ve had chances with the Goldies; although missed out on the Jamesies when opportunity called. :?
