Pink Floyd Platinum Collection – Official Merchandise
Pink Floyd have some new rather exclusive merchandise available for those fans who have rather deep pockets! A Division Bell sculpture, leather wallet and leather iPad wallet are available in strictly limited quantities on the website now.
Other products are to follow including t-shirts, a bag, a Dark Side of the Moon table and bowl, a Animals Pig and Wish You Were Here t-shirt archive in a carry case.
The three products showcased below are available for pre-order and will be shipped from 26th September 2011 to coincide with the re-release of Pink Floyd’s back catalogue under the title “Why Pink Floyd“. The products have been in the works for the past two years and the remaining products will be added to the Pink Floyd Platinum Collection website shortly.
They are released much to the “surprise” of Roger Waters. Discuss this topic on the forum on the Pink Floyd Platinum Collection thread and read more about Roger Waters’ reaction to this collection below!

Roger Waters Not Too Pleased
News of the collection website, its wares and prices became an issue of discussion on the NPF Forum on Friday 23rd July where it was questioned whether or not the website was legitimate. That same day, Roger Waters posted note 1 below on his Facebook page and then NPF alerted fans via Twitter and Facebook that the collection was fake. However, Pink Floyd management have just confirmed to me that the collection is official and Roger also posted a follow up note 2 on his Facebook expressing his opinion about the collection. Roger does not seem too enthusiastic about the collection!
Read the notes Roger posted below and feel free to discuss this topic on the forum on the Pink Floyd Platinum Collection thread.
Roger Waters Note 1 – 23rd July 2011 – Link
I have just been made aware of a site called Pink Floyd, Limited edition, Platinum Collection, I have checked it out.
I just want you to know, that none of this crap has anything to do with me. I don’t know who is responsible but I shall find out and let you know. What a load of junk! The only good news is that apparently the ludicrous ‘Dark Side of The Moon Bowl’ has been withdrawn due to the outcry of shocked Pink Floyd fans.
Notwithstanding my disgust, I have to admit I had to chuckle at the irony of the ‘Pink Floyd London Wallet’…..’Don’t send lire, God don’t want small potatoes’
Roger Waters Note 2 – 23rd July 2011 – Link
I promised to let you know when I found out who was responsible for ¨The Platinum Collection¨.
It was David and Nick.
Yes, I was somewhat surprised too.
It’s a funny old world and no mistake.
