Looks like a preorder. I imagine Metal Blade will announce it when they are ready. I don't know anything about EMP online or where they get their information, so I'm not much of a help.

I was thinking it was too early to a reissue, since the puppet master came out just a few years ago and then I realized it has been 10 years .. I am getting old

It's ridiculous how many times Maiden have Re-Released stuff and all these compilation/live albums is too much!

I collect everything I can find on vinyl by King diamond, whereas other bands one of each album is enough, King is the exception :P

I agree I'd very much rather a new album for sure! But then again if the label can cash in from this anniversary they're gonna do it and suckers like me will give them my hard earned cash :P

Got my shipping notification from Amazon UK.  Has anyone seen any press release about this?  I don't even see it on Metal Blade's site.

Ordered mine (haven't gotten it yet) from Metal Blade Records Europe, on the german ebay site. They ship only to germany, but if you ask you will come around this.
From the description there is a limited edition on vinyl of 1000ex on 2xLP (3 sides with music, last one with printed logo) + poster.

This is the phote they got on the ebay page.

Thanks!  I'm hoping that the Amazon vinyl also comes with the etching & poster.  I assume it will.  I can't imagine more than 1000 of these being issued.

Gotta say, this release looks AMAZING!!  They put a lot of effort into the gatefold jacket.  Super hi-gloss, excellent inner picture sleeves and the etching looks good I just haven't played it yet.  Poster is HUGE too.  Very cool, worthy the price IMO.
