    Do a google search for "Transformers DVD tin" it will bring up a couple of places. Problem is they're in China and the shipping is $30, bringing total cost to $100. When they first came out they were $45 in China plus $30 shipping. It's still well worth it considering some of the Rhino seasons go for over $100.

    Pretty sure ebay is the only place to get these that I know of.

    Good grief. I didn't pay anywhere near that much for mine, with shipping to the UK...
    However, it's still a superb set, and worth that much easily.

    hmm i paid £25 incl p&p for my set, that seems like i very high price for it on that auction, but i think its worth up to £50 for the set, it is very nice

    The guy I bought mine form is setting up shop online. He doesn't have them up yet. Its still under construction but I got the whole thing shipped for just under $50. I'll post a link for it tonight. Ive been waiting because I want to get the Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory boxset he has.

    The site is www.yesallasian.com he said his prices would remain reasonable too. It will probably be another month before hes set-up.

    I get the impression that eBay has squashed a lot of the chinese dealers for copyright issues. This guy had good feedback but was suspended , around the same time I noticed a lot of the dealers pulled these types of auctions.

    yeah, I was just looking to buy the complete xfiles set, which had been going for around $100, and I can't find it now AT ALL.

    i bought mine on ebay

    he may get more soon...only 49 after exchange rates too. IIRC...

    the case kinda sucks, IMO, but im making custom cases and artwork too, so itll look way better on my DVD shelf...

    Wow, I didn’t realize that these were that hard to find now (I just did an eBay search for them). Got mine for about $30 shipped.

    Actually they are now much cheaper than $45 (about $27 on joyo.com) if you purchase them from some online stores in china. And they also provide international shipping. But you have to be able to read Chinese on those websites:wink:
