According to CamelCamelCamel $113.99 is the lowest it's been.

I bought it for around $140 and I think it's been that price a couple times.

At Amazon, yes. At NBC/Universal's store, some lucky people got the BSG BD set for $49.99 in May 2010. I think that was the old packaging (w/o The Plan) though.

FWIW, this is a new encode than the previous Blu-ray release and it is definitely for the better.

Tempted by BSG as I don't have any seasons on BD and am missing half of one on SD. Would be a benefit to have it all together.

Firefox/ Heartbreak Ridge @ $12.99 is tempting.

When it comes to pricing anime, Borders.com is the king. I got this, shipped free to home on release day for $26.39 using a 40% off coupon.

Alien Anthology is 16.65 on Amazon.co.uk. The site has it listed as 19.98, but it adjusted to the lower price when checking out.

Total with shipping for me was $33.65. Much better deal than the current $52.99 sale.

Sorry, but when it comes to Borders, I will pay Amazon MORE just so I don't have to deal them. I'm glad they're dying a slow death. (Yes, I have issues with them).

Awesome, I didn't know that. I just liked the show a lot. I'm hoping somewhere, somehow, Cowboy Bebop will get the same treatment.

That would be the VAT tax removed from the price and gets countered with the shipping charge.

Can you provide some links or proof of this? The last thing I read said it was the same encode in new packaging. I would be interested if it is indeed a new encode.

If I must-

I've also read on other forums that they took it easy on the DNR with this release. I never saw the first Blu-ray release to compare, but the new version looks solid to me.

fyi, I saw many of these and then some 2-packs for $14.99 at Best Buy today. Minus the $5 off coupon that can be found around here + tax may make it a better deal for some at Best Buy.

Of course, if you buy 2 two-packs you're .02 shy of free shipping!

I picked up my set from Amazon UK back in November and paid a total of about $100, including shipping.

Thanks, I jumped on the US deal because of the missing webisodes and mission special. I think a few other extras got dumped off as well.

With the main difference being Manzana has his own official MAC(tm) (Manzana Attackers Club) with a large membership and Trespoochies does not. I get attacked in some threads even if I don't say a word.

I think you'd be largely ignored if you didn't post stuff like this. I think most people think you just like the attention. Doh! I fell into your trap.

I'll let you keep that title. My Trespoochies Attackers Club consists of my dogs, wife, and daughter. That's all this delicate soul can handle.
