I'll buy this when it inevitably has a price drop. I don't watch or collect much anime anymore, but this and Lain are two I want to own.

Probably just going to get the standard release, though the Amazon exclusive is intriguing but I can see putting out that much extra for it. No interest in the Funimation exclusive.

The Amazon exclusive edition is pretty awesome, but I can't think of the last time I burnt $100 on anime. Like a decade ago? :p Don't have the money to waste that I used to when I was younger, I've got kids and stuff now ;)

What's the details on the PQ on this? Did they grab a new film transfer or something or is this just a fancy upconvert?

Hmm, this sounds kind of awesome.

The extra features involving the voice cast seems to be focused mainly on the English cast(ie Dinner on the Bebop) which is too bad. I want to see more interviews with the original Japanese voice cast, and get their in depth perspective on what they think of the show in hindsight. An extended interview with Yoko Kanno is also welcomed :)

What's funny is I feel the exact opposite looking at the photos. I love the design of the Funimation one and don't care for the Amazon one. I may well spring for the Funimation one now that I have seen it. I just wish they weren't included a bunch of wasted DVDs. Makes no sense to me.

So neither exclusive release features any additional bonus features? I like the Amazon exclusive, but for significantly less money, I would just take the 4 disc blu-ray set without either of the art books.

Do they charge you now or when it ships?

I'm not really in touch with anime. Cowboy Bebop is something that I love inside and out, and have to have.

They don't charge until it ships, but your card will have a pre-authorization check. Some people have issues checking out logging in (if you signed on the site), so checking out as a guest could work better.

Just wanted to say thanks for the post! I canceled my other pre-order and reordered with the discount. Always nice to save a few bucks!

I went ahead and pre-ordered with the discount. I was stuck there for a bit, because I am not sure if I'm getting this for review, so I covered all of my bases.

Just fyi for those on the fence with the new set that includes the dvds, I just sold my old complete series dvd set and netted $30 after fees at Half.com. So getting this new deluxe set from Funimation for less than 30 bucks is perfect.

Is the FUNimation Exclusive Edition just an envelope with slats cut into it? I hate that style. The Amazon one at least has a plastic case. But the price difference... tough choice.

Looks like the show is also getting added to FUNi's streaming service. Episodes 1-4 are already up (Sub & Dub).

I know a lot of people bitched about it but I like the packaging for the funimation exclusive.

Looking forward to getting mine.

Yeah, I've got the LP version coming. I guess I'll file it with my records.

Pissed I sat on this and missed both collector versions. Just slipped my mind until it was too late

I forgot about it too. Guess I'll wait for a price drop on the standard version.

The standard on Amazon just had a small price-drop. Probably the lowest it's going to go for a few months.
