From what I remember, the clear came in the box set; the blue was offered first, then the multi colours and the blue/yellow swirls, and then a few months later, the black was offered up in a raffle where you might get the chance to buy it.  2 or 300 blue sets printed, 100 blacks, more on the multi and blue/yellows, and I forget what the run was on the box sets.

Yea, that sounds familiar.  No wonder I can't find the black anywhere.  I think someone on here got picked for the black if I remember right.  Or was that another rarity?

I guess I also didn't realize they weren't all boxsets, I assumed they were.
What would a woman that fine want in a big, fat, nasty, greasy, fat, stank, bloated, cheesy-backed, 12-sandwich-eatin' bastard?

Someone on ebby had the black up for around $200; I'm not sure if it's sold cheaper than that.
I'm pretty sure someone from the board posted they got one of the black versions.

The box set came in a box (heh).. with a comic and a belt buckle.   The comic you should be able to pick up for a low low one or two dollar(..maybe five or six?) price.

I have seen the black one you are talking about on there also, but I don't think it sold since it didn't have any bids...ever

*wondering what bUTT's vinyl collection looks like*

Didn't you say that you'd post photos of it at one time, or am I thinking about another creepy poster?

Chel had a couple of black sets (no box) about two weeks ago.

Drop an email and ask if they're still available.

:lol:  Probably some other creep. 
Melvins collections are strange; you buy swag because it reminds you of how great the band is, esp. the live shows..then your pile of crap starts to grow and take on a life of it's own.  I like the shirts and posters + the weirdo things they sell, I have a decent vinyl collection, although I don't really go nuts with the variants.

I too prefer the shirts and the weirdo things they sell. My vinyl collection just started but I don't know if I will ever own all of them or not(especially some of the variants of the same release); and seeing as I don't have a turntable anyway it almost seems stupid. but I like the fact that the artwork is on a much larger format than it is with a cd booklet

You should look into purchasing a turntable, playing them is half the fun.

I have thought about buying one, but a friend of mine told me they are not worth all the trouble you have to go through to keep them clean. But he also doesn't understand why bands still put out vinyl when cd's sound so much better.
