So... what do you think is inside the mystery box?

The rights to the catalog?

The right to the ownership of the Residents?

Anyone have 5 million dollars they could spare?

Gosh, you read my mind. I was thinking about this about an hour ago.

I have a feeling it's something small that would cost like half a penny in the store.

there is a chance they were selling the idea of something so incredibly valuable but also testing the extents to which Rz fans are willing to go for rare items. testing the waters. turns out, No One Has That Much. folks have 1k and more, but not millions.

And, of course, there is this possibility.

So you think that it's just a concept and there really isn't anything in the box?
 
Because I seem to recall a hint being given that stated whoever owned the contents of the box had the potential to make their money back and then some. That would lead me to believe it's publishing rights.

hmm, but their obscurity makes them a difficult product to sell. and, jeez, would that not be just.. paying money to be a Cryptic? lol

Maybe it was bought and sold in secrecy.

I always thought it was the entire contents of their archives, or the publishing rights. The fact is, no one who has $5M in chump change isn't going to spend it on a mystery box, or if they did, they would not be a fan of the Residents.

Did they ever sell more than the 2 UBS? (or was the one to MOMA a gift?).

Great PR though. Can't deny their ability to do that. Use it while you got it!

I thought it would be Carlos's mummified eyeballs resting on a bed of his ashes. Could be the perfect crime - if nobody was going to buy the box due to its sky high price, who would know where he had really gone?
