Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has announced a $2,000, 38-pound box set called The Vault. And yes, it's quite literally a vault.

The Vault is comprised of 10 discs of solo material, 150 unreleased tracks, a leather-bound photo book, a Gene Simmons action figure and an "In Gene We Trust" gold medallion.

With “The Gene Simmons Vault Home Experience," Simmons—for a fee of (take a deep breath) $50,000—will even personally deliver The Vault to your house, spend a couple hours with you and up to 25 guests and even host a personal Q&A session.

There's also the slightly cheaper, $25,000, "Gene Simmons Vault Producer Experience" option, which allows you to spend an hour in the studio with Simmons, listening to tracks from The Vault.
