Maiden Collection

Albie

Keeping an open eye on the Weeping Angels.
I have to admit, that list is impressive considering you would of possibly only started that collection (I'm guessing) 5/6 years ago. There is some rarities that would have set you back a bit. I know how much, for example, the Holy Smoke single on CD can go for as I was tempted - for a microsecond - to put it up on ebay when I got Eddies Archive. I have had this tendency to sell all my vinyl as and when I got the CD version* and as all of the said single is on the Eddies Archive collection, it nearly went as well. I still collect the vinyl single releases if it has a different track listing to the CD version.

* Having said that, I still have Futureal, Lord of The Flies and Wasting Love to get on CD. And I too have some rare stuff - like the original release of Live at Donnington 1992 and the little box you would have got with The X Factor that was (apparently) meant to house the album, and the two singles - the two versions of Man on the Edge and Lords of the Flies, but Lord of The Flies was not officially released in the UK - so two versions of Virus sit there instead. Well, I have been collecting the CD's since the late 80's.

As for Maiden related:

Bruce Dickinson: Tattooed Millionaire (original release), Dive, Dive, Dive CD single (with poster), Chemical Wedding and Tyranny of Souls - all on CD.
Wolfsbane: All CD albums except All Hell's Breaking Loose. The Shakin' CD single. As well as a cassette of Wasted but Dangerous I bought at one of their concerts.

EDIT: And Blood & Beleif - Blaze - how could I forget that one. :biggrin:

Actually, I got some of those items surprisingly cheap (including the Holy Smoke single). At some points during the last two years, I'd been watching Ebay with eagle eyes, trying to snatch anything I could get at under 10 Euros... I was, however, so eager to complete the First Ten Years that I did bend that budget a bit from time to time.
Also, there are some items I've been after for so long that I had no other choice than to grab a little deeper into my pocket, most notably the Man On The Edge box. But sometimes, it's not even the price, but the rarity of the item. I simply haven't found a Fear Of The Dark live single on Ebay yet. Or, if I have, at that time I could indeed not afford it. Also, some are just finds of pure luck (Maiden Japan, Best Of The Beast and Silver And Gold I found while randomly browsing my local used record store).
But yes, given that my serious collecting only really started two years ago, I am quite impressed myself sometimes when I look at what I have.

That was one of your best achievements imo!
Those things are pretty wanted.

I still don't have them all, but I have never bought any Maiden items via internet either.

I can't list by heart what I have, I'll do it soon.

*jealous of all you Europeans*  :p

It's so hard to find rare stuff here in America, but I have a few things to add to my *tiny* list:

Picked these up in Toronto last month:
Killers hoodie
Powerslave shirt (not the tour, just mommy-Eddie on the back)
Judas Priest British Steel 1980 tour shirt (my hubby was at this show, but they didn't have the shirt in his size!)

Hey Perun, is the "acoustic" version of Paschendale better than the regular? I'd like to hear it...
And isn't there an "electric" version of Journeyman on that No More Lies EP?

I've heard of the orchestral version of Paschendale, but not an acoustic version. This and the electric Journeyman are all on the No More Lies EP.

@Perun: Does your First Ten Years have the box or did you get hold of the CD's individually?

I remember seeing the No More Lies EP back in 2003, but I wasn't paying attention to Maiden back then  :S
*H would be ashamed*

I'll ask my hubby to get it for mr for Christmas  :D he can pick it up online somewhere, as long as it's still around...?

Keeping an open eye on the Weeping Angels.
I just had a quick browse on (UK) ebay. 4 No More Lies selling - cheapest £0.99 (0 bids), dearest £19.99 (0 bid) but there is a £14.99 with 1 bid. (£14.99 is around $30 or €22).

And out of curiosity, I searched for Wasting Love. Found one in Berlin with 1 bid - £50.

No, I got hold of them individually, over a time frame of three years, teaching me that patience is a virtue for collectors of rarities. I remember bargaining for my first one (Wasted Years) with a used record dealer. I got it for two Euros less  :D

Powergirl, it's quite easy to get stuff from overseas through Ebay or Amazon. As a matter of fact, I'm starting to regularly buy American CDs via Amazon, because they are cheaper than European ones, even with shipping and handling. If you're buying it from the right people, it won't take much longer than from your country either.

OK, I'll try that. I've seen some rare stuff on ebay before, but I've never bought anything off of it yet. Last year I saw an autographed Powerslave vinyl record! And you could actually "read" the autographs

Nowadays you just scribble your autograph so no one can read it....anyone here have stuff signed my Maiden?

Keeping an open eye on the Weeping Angels.
That is some collection Forostar. I must admit it surpasses mine - but mine is almost all CD's/DVD's - around 85/90 and only around 5/6 of these I have had to buy second hand as most of the rest have been brought close enough to its release (re-issue) date and therefore, if any single (aside from the three mentioned earlier) had two versions or a box or a digipak or those little postcards, I have 'em. I do have some vinyl and one or two VHS's - and a patch. I don't have, however, Eddies Head. That was going for over £100 and I could not afford it at the time.

But this Wildest Dreams 2 track CD I've not heard of - is it a promo or something?

Out of curiosity, does anyone have the little 3D cover with the Virtual XI or Rock in Rio CD's.

Isn't that a 3" CD? I know for certain that a Rainmaker one exists, as I've seen that several times (though never bought it  :blush: ).

I have those 3D covers mate!
I also decided not to buy Eddie's Head. Too expensive.

I forgot about the patches, by the way:
3 patches:
-Killer Tour
-Fear Of The Dark (black and white)
-Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son.

Wildest Dreams. Differences between the 2-track and the 3-track single:

2-track
code: 07243 552930 2 2
the sleeve is double, however a blank inside
B-side: Pass The Jam
European tourdates (October and November 2003) printed below the info on the 2 tracks

3-track
The red sticker says it's a limited edition
code: 07243 552931 2 1
the sleeve is single
2 B-sides: Pass The Jam & Blood Brothers (Orchestral Mix)
European tourdates (October and November 2003) printed under the plastic (cd-inlay)

No clue why they did this. I just remember I saw it and bought it. Somehow I can't find anything about it on the official site.   :blink:

@Perun:
Not a 3" CD, Perun, and I have never known about a 3" CD of Rainmaker either. You have a link, just curious how it looks? :)

I have the Rock In Rio one. Does anyone know how rare those are?

My own collection is quite modest, and I doubt it has changed much from whatever I previously posted in this topic years ago: all the 1998 enhanced CD remasters, all the studio and live albums since then (A Matter of Life and Death with the special edition DVD), the 1CD version of Best of the Beast, the Maiden England CD/VHS package, the Early Days DVD, the 2-track CD Wildest Dreams single (it was the one I found when I went out to look for it), Run To The Hills: The Authorised Biography (2nd edition) and a few t-shirts.

As for Maiden-related material, I have all Bruce Dickinson's studio albums in the original CD versions, plus the 2CD reissues of Balls To Picasso and Skunkworks, the 2CD Best Of and the Anthology DVD, as well as all the four Blaze albums released so far.

I also have a few bootlegs and downloaded rare tracks.

I have the 3d cover of Virtual XI and Rock in Rio. Unfortunately, i missed the special AMOLAD edition.  :S

My collection is very modest: all the standard cd´s ( SIT as 1998 edition, Iron Maiden as 1995 edition, no repeating), all the standard live albuns ( Donington' white cover), 12 wasted years and the first 10 years video original VHS , early days and DOTR dvd´s (still missing the Rock in Rio DVD...  :down:).

For a reason that i cannot comprehend, i missed the opportunity to buy the Real Live one album in the 1990´s.  :( , so it´s the only missing standard album in my collection. I also did have the expensive  Eddies Archive in my hands, but back then i was too embarrassed to ask my parents to give me some little help... you know...  ;) (probably i will regret this...).

I do not collect best of albuns (the only one i think it was worth to buy was the special edition of the Best of the beast, but back then i didn´t even heard anything about Maiden).  -_-

What else ?? ah, i do have a Virus t-shirt, but it´s very small  :lol:, and a football ticket from the Virtual XI european "football" tour.... (poor Maiden...).  :innocent:

I have also some magazines about Maiden, but nothing very relevant to  be mentioned.

I also have downloaded the famous killer version of Bruce, somewhere in 1981, i think...  :yey:

Maiden-related: Not much - Tattooed Millionaire, the chemical wedding and recently bought the special edition of Accident of Birth.
