I got it too last night. Failed to pick-it up when it was $17.25 at Buy.com. I hope Amazon reduces the price for James Dean collection to $17.99 also.

I will surely. I know Amazon has post-purchase guarantee but do they have pre-purchase guarantee as well. Something similar to Deepdiscount's price match?

By the way, DVD Polizei you can get another set of Animated Soviet Propaganda for $11.99 if you have dipped just once

Funny thing, I did order it because I wasn't at the $25 free shipping amount. Damn, you read my mind, dude.

I was going to order it in the past when the deal first came out, but I never did. I did tonight, though as it's been on my wishlist.

Give it a try, email them and ask for a refund. They will probably give it to ya anyways.

Did I miss something? Were they cheaper than they are now? They are $28.50 each for 1-4, but $130 for the set of 1-5. So getting #5 in the set would have only been another $16. This price has been Amazon's price for the set of 1-5 for quite a while.

It's too bad The "Essential" Steve McQueen Collection has only a nice outer box with the regular DVD releases inside. Would've been much better with a Sergio Leone Set type of packaging.

Eugh, I don't like getting box sets in digipacks. I like being able to separate them and shelve them separately if I want without going through some crazy hassle of buying cases and printing art...

Not anymore. Amazon realized their mistake. The set is now $80 shipped from Amazon. If you didn't get it, you ain't gonna get it.
