The KD/MF Collectors...
« on: April 02, 2010, 07:12:57 AM »
Who are the fanatical collectors on here of anything KD/MF? So far I have collected the following, this year alone has been way to expensive, but needs must.

50 x Original LP's + 2 Bootlegs
9 x Original Tapes
57 Original CD's + 1 Bootleg
14 x T-Shirts
1 x Hoody
10 MF Guitar Picks Collection
10 KD Guitar Picks Collection
9 x Patches
2 x Mouse Mats
25 x Button Badges
1 x Watch
2 x Beanie Hats
1 x Keyring
6 King Diamond Cards
2 x Tattoo's - 9 & Don't Break The Oath, on each shoulder
Lot's of paper clippings, photo's & posters
House Of God Tour, ticket signed by Andy & Mike
Related band CD's include both Force of Evil cd's, Bibleblack, Zoser Mez, Gutrix, Disasterpeace, Probot, & Virus 7, could maybe throw in Arch Enemy & Witchery as well.

I've never been into any other band like this, no other band ticks all the boxes for me musically, so a big thanks to KD/MF for years of great music, I hope we have more years to come and more stuff to collect. If you can King or Ole, can you ask the record companies to include some nice posters/badges or photographs in future re-release. Would be nice to have a little bit extra when you buy a different version of the same album several times. I've got 7 formats of Spiders Lullabye, ldt ed digipak, normal cd, remastered cd, remastered lp, coloured vinyl lp, pic disc & cassette...be nice for collectors to get little gems when they buy re-releases as a thanks for doing so. I know the record companies do this off their own backs, but if you could influence what they offer it would make buying these new release even sweeter.

I'm nearly 39, so been collecting KD for a while, got most of my stuff from eBay & Amazon or the odd rare record store. Most of the memorabalia is all bootlegged though, like mouse pads, guitar picks & keyrings ect...but the quality of bootlegs is really good these days.

I choose to start with the original ( official or Licensed) releases so there´s only a couple of bootlegs by the moment..

I really love to get different items and editions... Must of my friends thinks that I´m crazy to collect all the same releases on the same album but as soon as they saw them... they just says... COOL!!!

KD / MF has been my band since 1989... I also have 3 tattos, just 2 T´- shirts but as I live in Costa Rica you don´t have idea how difficult is to find some items... Thank you ebay hehehehe.

Regards Collector friends...

That is just amazing... for how long have you been collecting KD/MF stuff? I just started a few months ago as I tell before... Here in the stores in Costa Rica you can only find the CD´s and sometimes a vynil... it is strange.. for example I got the In The Shadows 2LP  in a record store... and it was very ship... just $25 usd... taking in count that you can find it on Ebay for $23 - $27 plus shipping... I guess they got retailer disccounts...

My Cellpnone has the THEM cover, and my 2 PC also  have The Spider´s Lullaby and The Graveyard wallpapers too...

Probably about 20yrs Aeon666, I should have had much more, but my time in army took me away from the metal scene & bringing up two kids ect slowed me down a bit, still got a few more items I need in terms of vinyl's and the original The Beginning CD & the two Roadrunner KD Vault CD's to complete all the original CD's, less a few digipaks or other country pressings. Now I just buy a little each month, but the coloured vinyl's have left me skint for this month, so next payday I have earmarked a couple more MF lp's...

You've done really well collecting what you have in such a small space of time, it won't take you long until you have doubled that. I like to get all the originals first, then the fancy remasters & coloured vinyls ect...much like yourself. But sometimes you have to just dive iin and get the rare stuff before it becomes over priced...which is beginning to happend already on ebay with the new KD/MF lp's.

Where did you find the watch? I would love to have a KD/MF watch. My collection is nothing, I have all the studio albums, 1 bootleg dvd, and a Melissa picture disc signed by Hank Sherman, and one Voodoo tour shirt. I will have a DBTO tatt on my chest one day soon, and if I can find one I'll be getting a watch :king:
