This exciting forthcoming Camel box set doesn’t appear on any UK websites for pre order at present for some strange reason but is widely reported in the US and Germany….a little worrying for Camel fans here.

I have the same problem.
I am guessing there really isn’t a poster even though they advertised it.
I sent an email to the manufacturer, asking after this issue, but have not heard back as of yet.
