bit pricey aint dey!i bought 1 of those cubes with a dolphin in it for 1.50!how can they sell something soooooo small for 33.49 more just cause its got a piccy of da band members in em.sounds to me like dey taking da piss!they say dat we r loyal fans+dat dey r proud of dey fans so...........why do they allways want more money off us+why do they never say thanx!dont get me wrong.....i luuuuurv ub40 but it would be nice if just once in a while they remembered that it was us that got them where they r 2day+that once in a while they said "thank you for supporting us over the years+we love you all"

they are collectors items,so one day(long long way away)when they have retired or passed on,34 will not seem alot when you could double your money-as they will be legends.

mind you i will have to pass them on to my kids as i shall be over the hill myself by then graemlins/laff.gif

it was the labour of love 3 tour,in cardiff cia 1999.it is the only bad 1 though.the 1st 1 i went to i was spoilt cause i was in the front+ali was looking at me while he was singing so the bad 1 was really upsetting cause of the high ide already had.never mind eh life goes on lol

I can never say I have seen them in way at all being misrible at any gigs, in fact I very much doubt that there is any other band worldwide that has so much to do with their fans, at gigs and on a personal level.
I will be very proud to own these cubes, okay maybe a bit pricey but I bet they are better made than these ones bought from gift shops at seaside resorts. :D

anyway its not like they are asking you to buy them all at once,one a month at 34 is not asking a lot.
people spend that a night on drink when they go out and have nothing to show for it.

Hmm ... should it really be about price? If you want it you'll buy it ... if you don't then don't. Why complain about it?

You obviously do want it or you wouldn't be complaining about the price so just bite the bullet and buy it. It looks like a lot of hard work has gone into these collectable items. Not like the cheap crappy 1.50 perspex dolphins you can buy at the market. All I can say is I'm looking forward to getting mine and getting the rest of the set.

How can you say 'what do we get in return?'. Now you really are talking crap. UB40 share with us, their fans, their love of music and they have devoted their lives to it. It's a give and take thing. You're right ... if it wasn't for us, they wouldn't be where they are now but if if wasn't for them then we wouldn't be huge UB40 fans either.

Now just go buy a cube

oh ... and welcome to the BB

ub40 owe us bog all as far as i'm concerned. just cos we like the music and go to the gigs why does that make them responsible for our happiness? what a loada shite. they don't have to bring out new music, they don't have to tour, they don't have to meet the fans. they do it cos they want to. they're just doing their own ting, we happen to like it. that's it, finito. they owe us nothing. we buy it cos we want it. THAT'S ALL!!!!!

Couldn't have put it better myself. I am just the same. I buy anything I see of UB40, and go to as many gigs as possible. I don't care if I'm left penniless. As you rightly said, they make me happy everyday graemlins/friends.gif

Everyone is getting well het up over this!!?????

Its as simple as this....

If you want one.....Buy one

If you don't.....Don't ????

Dont like the post that says our boys are miserable and don't deserve our loyalty???

Hello.....we are all here BECAUSE of our loyalty.....dont know what gig he/she was at....I have NEVER been to a gig when they are miserable???

They....UB40....DESERVE our loyalty, because they keep delivering fanblinkintastic music FOR us....simple as that

They say in their music what most of us here feel in our hearts.......

NUFF SAID

DONT WIND ME UP............. I have enough time justifying my passion to 'normal peeps'..... Dont want to have to do it here!!!

i understand now why the labour of love 3 in cardiff wasnt as good after reading bout alis drink problem.thats probably why it was short.i didnt say for us not to be loyal or faithful to them.i love them too.i only said the cubes were a bit expensive.i wish peeps would my stuff properly.im on a ub40 site.........why would i **** em off!!!???i have a hard time trying to make peeps understand why i like them so much too+yes i buy everything i find to do with them.i also make stuff to do with ub40 but,that doesnt mean that i cant say wot i feel about something.i thought thaT was the whole point of having a web site where all us ub fans can talk.just because i dont like something doesnt mean i dont like them!so u can all stop being soooo devensive.......im not having a dig at them OK!there was 1 good thing that came out of that concert......ziggy from grangehill was there yaaaaay

jesus this has all been blown out of proportion a bit lol. I think it is a tiny bit expensive for what it is but then i think that they are aimed at proper collectors and it's the fact that their limited edition that attracts. I spoke to someone today which has seen one and he said they are real small but quite good. Apparently the face actually moves around inside the cube. graemlins/bouncegrey.gif

I've seen 1 gig of them on dvd, that was an intervieuw with Ali here in Holland, I pimp when I saw that Ali was under influence and he was very funny, but later that night he had to do his gig and sorry sweet people it was terrible.
He had almost lose his voice, he wasn't moving very much. So I hate to admit but that one was terrible.
I'm convinced that Ali is growing and growing in his gigs, when you look at the DVD "Homegrown in Holland" FANTASTIC, FABULOUS, OUTSTANDING, GREAT!!!!!!!!
And the thing with the cubes, hey we live in a business world the people who made this ones want to see money I think that the guys receive a small percentage of this one. So UB40 don't abuse their fans in this. That is what I believe.

And cook1e we are not Ali lovers, WE ARE ROBIN LOVERS HAHAHAHAHAHHA.
