I'm surprised that this has never fallen below the $40 per season deal that Best Buy had about 2-1/2 years ago.

Me too. I am glad that I picked my sets up then.

The set has the Enterprise sticker on the shrinkwrap which is the only difference between buying the set or the individual seasons.

You can also get the standard dvd set for $108

Sorry, not really wanting to threadcrap, but when the hell can we expect any of the other ST series to finally drop in price. :-\

Probably never. When the new movie comes out next year we may see a sale or maybe a price drop then, but I don't think the Star Trek seasons have ever really fallen to a "reasonable" price point.

Just a warning on these. I ordered 2 a year ago (1 to flip ;-)). Wound up not keeping either but didn't know till after the fact that both packages had damage to the 2nd season. After doing some research at the time apparently this set is notorious for arriving damaged. Needless to say it was an expensive lesson as I had to return the money to one of the buyers and buy the 2nd season for the other.....

Eh, I'm in either way. This is a childhood favorite of mine. I'm surprised it took me so long to get these, so at this price, I'm jumping in now.

So is this price likely just timed for Christmas or a real price drop?

Christmas only more than likely. These have never gotten below $40 per season.

Do you recall what exactly the damage was? Is it damage to the exterior or the interior of the case (if I order this, I probably won't watch it for a while, but if I need to, I would open it to see if it was damaged). thanks!

That's interesting because my order arrived today. I took the shrinkwrap off the whole set of all 3 season boxes. But then I noticed that the 2nd season, it was the only one like this, had another shrinkwrap just on it. I was confused as to why that particular season had its own shrinkwrap, but your story maybe explains why.

If it's what I think he's referring to, it's the case. The little clips that hold the case shut tend to break on the larger cases that season one and two come in.

It was the interior of the 2nd season case.

Mine just arrived. Set arrived in great condition. All 3 seasons are in great shape, no clips broken or crushed.

Thanks for the notice. I had season 1 but not the other two. I can get this, trade back in the unopened season 1 from this set back for $27 and have the season 2 and 3 for $30 each.

FYI: These are in Costco B&M stores for $89.99 if you feel like paying tax, but want them NOW.
