Yesterday, we posted about some rumors concerning Hot Topic repressings of both “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket” and “Cheshire Cat,” from Blink 182. Turns out, the TOYPAJ pressing is the first to get reportedly confirmed, with it set to arrive in Hot Topic stores and on their website in either February or March.
The new pressing will reportedly be on 180-gram black vinyl, with the initial set limited to 500. If these sell out very quickly, more copies could very well be on their way. But if you definitely want this, make sure to get it right away, as anything past 500 is not confirmed. The packaging will be the same as the first Hot Topic pressing.
The first TOYPAJ pressing from Hot Topic was 2,000 copies and was on red, green and yellow vinyl. I’ve included the picture of the one I purchased when they were originally in stores.
So yes, it’s entirely possible (and really probable) that two Hot Topic pressings could reportedly come out before Mightier Than Sword can produce their first. If you remember, the MTS pressing was set to drop last September on 180-gram black vinyl. Since people are still waiting for shipping confirmation today, there could now be some canceled orders coming MTS’s way. The only thing that would stop cancellation would be the 7″ bonus records that MTS is also pressing. But there could be some competition in that field coming as well……
Update: The price of this pressing from hot topic will be $19.99 a piece.
