i may be wrong here, but i also get the impression that nobody here is actually keeping up with the reissues like a proper freak.
by that i mean no blame. it’s just an impression.
some of us used to be all over a new release, collecting all the main international versions and promos within weeks. (i remember it used to be like that when zeitgeist and american gothic came out, for example.) now it seems like we’re all a bit slower, myself included.

i guess the reissues – even though they’re being released fairly slowly – are coming too fast, and are too expensive. you need a big wallet to stay on top of those.
and there must be other reasons. some people are less into the band, compared to a couple of years ago. that takes away part of the drive to collect.
and for me, the fact that i think some of the reissue prices are a rip-off, doesn’t help either. i don’t mind spending some money, but if i get the feeling i’m getting ripped off, i stay away.
