But I still don't have all what I'd wanted to. Can you believe I can't find "The Chosen Ones" anywhere? :cry:

You can find it on amazon.com
As far I have:
1. Episode LP
2. Hunting High And Low single togrther with I Want Out single by Hammerfall on casette. I think it was relased only here, under licence of NuclearBlast, so it might be rare in the world.
3. Fright Night together with Will The Sun Rise single on one CD released probably in Russia.
So where does the power come from to see the race to its end?

The Kiss of Judas CD Single (Promo)
It's a Mystery 7"
The Past and Now (Japanese Best Of)
The Limited Edition 2-CD longboxes for the last 3 albums
All Kotipelto CD singles
All Stratovarius Japanese singles

I think that's it.. but i'm REALLY trying to get my hands on the Finnish version of Kotipelto's "Waiting for the Dawn" album. It has a bonus track and I can't find it anywhere!!

@Dawn : would u marry me ? :wink:

I have some rare stuffs, especially :
Fright Night Japonese
Classical Variations And Themes Japonese
single Take Me Away
single Beginning
7'' of Millions Year Miles Away (i don't remember the exact title, I hate that song so much) and It's A Mystery
and one bootleg in Lyon '1996 that you cannot find anywhere else.

I also had Father Time & Kiss Of Judas singles, but I gave them to one "friend", which I really regret nowadays, cause this person isn't worth it at all.

Please buy it from Finland. We have here still lots of ´em. (You mean Book of the Dead as bonus track or?)

The one who asked for The Chosen Ones, you can find it in Stratoshop. So, easy. :wink:

I think my rarest CDs are Intermission 2 CD longbox Special Edition, all Kotipelto-singles and 14 Diamonds Best of compilation. :roll:

You can get it from stratoshop...

As for me, my rarest stuff are the French edition of E1 (well, not quite rare over here :D) and the E1 & Intermission 2CD longbox. And I also have Kotipelto's Reasons single I heard it was released only in Finland, but I found it quite easily here :/

I have a promo copy of Kotipelto's 'Coldness' album, dunno how rare this is, it's in a cardboard case.

the rare version of 'visions of destiny' bootleg.

some pics i took during concerts, and pics of me with the guys.

rare stuf; does that include signed stuf? I think it's pretty rare. I've got a signed flag, a signed drumstick(!!) and a signed edition of Kotipelto's "Reasons".

When I was in Japan, I saw almost every single in remote stores. I bought so many cds when I was there though that I only bought "Will the Sun Rise?" because it's almost like a mini live album (songs like Eternity, Speed of Light, and Father Time live! It rules!) :P

Hi!

About Visions of Destiny, I just got it this tuesday, a friend of a friend who came from Germany sold it to me (yeah, it was pretty expensive :? ... but what the hell! :D )

About The Chosen Ones, I know it's on sale on Stratoshop, but they charge EUR15 for handling & shipping, so it makes it too expensive for an "average" CD! I think I'll wait until the New album is released and purchase both together, and maybe with some more items, so the Eur15 expenses worth it.

I badly want Koti's Beginning single, but I think it's really hard to find. :cry:

Another "rare" stuff I remember is a 3cm x 1cm piece of wood of Jörg's drumstick, that he threw to the crowd on their gig at Hangar, on Buenos Aires, Argentine, on the 2003 Elements tour. A friend of mine caught it there and then I cut that piece off with a knife :D
I also have a Destiny flag, and a hand-painted 80cm x 80cm Visions cover on a frame hanging on my livingroom wall 8) (of course it isn't "official" merchandise, some guy I know who is a professional artist made it several years ago for himself, but now I have it!)

@Cliff: Marry you? I think your gf and my bf will not agree with it :lol:

Rock On!
