    I think it is an ok price. Didn't Rhino charge $40 or so EACH season? and that was half a season each. $140 for the entire series isn't too bad.

    That's twice the amount I thought!

    Guess I'll have to stick with singles.

    YIKES!!!!

    Although.....adding up the Rhino silver boxes from when they were initial released years ago, could add up close to that. But at least the sting was taken off when the were released one at a time.

    i have a perfectly working set from China, complete with the option of Chinese voiceover and subtitles.

    i'm curious to know what special features on are this set.

    yet, despite the price and the fact that I already have a complete set, i feel myself wanting to swoop down on these like some predatory bird...

    140 is cheaper than I thought it would be - I am pre-ordering this FOR SURE!!!!!! I cant believe people are complaining about this price - youd rather shell out 30-50 bucks for 1/2 of each season!!

    I'm getting the GI Joe set too!

    Think about what you'd pay individually:

    $30 per boxset. Seasons 2 and 3 being split into 2. So $150 total. PLUS this includes shipping. Which for a pretty decent sized, heavy set like that would run you a solid $15-20.

    Calm down, kids. I'll buy it soon.

    I wonder if this set will ever be seen in a retail store or if it will be online only?

    I don't know why anyone is bitching about the cost.

    Individually each of these DVD sets will be 30 dollars with the season 2 divided in two parts. That is 120 dollars before you even begin with exclusives. There is quite a bit extra involved in this set and it is geared towards the fan, not the typical consumer.

    140 dollars is entirely fair, that is 1.50 per episode and that is after the work thats been done on this package. 140 dollars is a steal. Hell the motion picture on blu ray goes for 25 dollars. The rhino releases won't stand up to these in the slightest and if you were gonna go find them now well... good luck.

    Even the chinese set retails near 100 dollars so going on this side of the world that is pretty fan fucking tastic.

    It's cheaper than I thought too. I figured it was going to be close or around $200, and $140 is so worth everything you're getting. Think about all the extras :thumbs2: 

    Just pre-ordered this....now...the waiting game :banghead:

    That is actually a pretty decent price when you consider the breakdown of how much a season costs. Consider it preordered!

    I am gonna go ahead and get this since I never got the rhino sets. Really to me this price isn't all that bad compared to other series sets of this size.
