    I just bought a used set of Robotech dvds.

    Macross saga vol. 1-6
    Masters vol. 7-10
    New Generation vol. 11-14

    Total $68.00 All discs were in very good condition, no scratches.

    ADV produced them, I didn't get any of the extra discs.

    I've never watched this show so I hope its good.

    Good deal? Opinions please.

    is that the 3-disc box set that came out before the single-box set that came out before before that other one.

    the first one went for $30 each so $70 for that box set is good and a good collector's peice.

    I think you got a decent deal. Better than what I paid at least.

    As for weather or not the show is good, well, you're opening a whole can of worms there. ;) 

    IMHO, I think it's a good story and like how they found a way to tie the different series together. Worth at least one viewing.

    Not sure. They are all single discs in individual cases.

    Sounds like you got the first version of the dvds, the ones that weren't in the three packs. The three packs all had an extra dvd.
    But yes, that is a great price for the set.
    There's like a million versions that adv has put out since that one, but this set is the "unaltered" version.
    Given the history behind the series, and all the drama that ensues, Robotech is still a very good series.
    The Macross Saga is awesome, the Masters and the New Generation are ok, still good, but not as good as the first generation stories, but that's just me.
    If you really want to go further down the rabbit hole, you should try to hunt down the books as well!

    The books are freakin' awesome. Took me forever and way too much money to track them all down, but it was totally worth it.

    Really? That hard to find the books? I went to a borders 5 years ago and was able to
    order whatever they didn't have in stock.
    The only ones I do not have are the newer ones after book 18.

    I just looked around online stores and didn't have any luck till eBay. Got all but 2 in one sweep. Eventually found the other two, but it took some digging.
