What makes the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl so special?
What makes the holograms so special is that the grooves in the vinyl record records light, in the same manner that the vinyl record grooves produce sound.

Will the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl go up in price?
Will the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl increase in value?
It could. This is a limited production, so if the supply does not meet the demand, it could very well make the price increase in the public marketplace. It currents sells $47.99 on Amazon.com, but it is currently "out of stock" - an indicator that it is selling very quickly. The Amazon.com sale of this also includes a digital .mp3 of all of the music tracks as well. If you want just the .mp3 music, it is $7.99.
