I think this question can be only answered when someone got it and is kind enough to show pics and tell what is inside (and how it is opened) ;)

But no further description by NB so far.

Thanks, but that is the description we already knew.
50 euro for just a pyramid and the album and maybe some card on which is the unique serial number, can't be all, or?

on the picture theres some dragon coins in front of it, so I assume we'd get those, also, ATiTM had a cirtificate of authenticity with it so i think we'll get that and maybe autographs or something.

It's really strange, because not even the CD is on the picture... I think that is usually the case, isn't it?

I got the digipack today!

@Arwen: Indeed, but it is declared as boxset, and every boxset had an album so far ;)
But is it the digi pack? ;)

The special vinyl box seems interesting, in a Interview it was said that there are some liner notes about the song lyrics :D

yeah but 55 euros, mhhhhh....

For this money you can go to another concert and maybe ask Hansi about the song lyrics by yourself ;)

EDIT: It was said in the Metal Hammer report:
Hansi:

I personally prefer vinyl, that's why i am happy that AtEoT will be released as double and fourfold vinyl additionally.
Especially the fourfold vinyl edition is very extensive made and explains the ideas of the song lyrics in details.

Same here.
NB packages are usually delivered by DPD Classic. They are pretty fast but they don't deliver on Saturdays.
So it seems that there will be no pyramid today :(

Considering how much we paid for the fricking pyramid, I don't think it would be too much to ask of NB to send them on Thursday instead of Friday evening :evil:

Good idea. I ordered my Box-set months before to get it as early as possible, and now it seems I´ll be the last who get it. That´s not fair. :(

It probably is something like that but it feels pretty stony.
