Repackage of the OOP A&E set w/some changes:
The bonus disc is missing from this set, thus 16 discs instead of 17.
Piggy-backing of discs, 2 per page, in 1 thick case, plus complaints of customers receiving loose, sometimes scratched, discs in shipping.

Just a FYI.

I sold my CE ed. of this several years back for over 300 dollars. I knew it'd be re-released, so I'll pick this up ... eventually.

Wish I had your foresight. Instead I have an unopened set.

I traded mine in at Digital Eyes back in the day for around the same amount. I bought this set a couple months ago to finally replace it. Floater city for the discs though when I got it.

Wow, that new packaging is crap. I have the original set and only paid 30.00 for it right before it went OOP so I'm happy with it. Wished it had a smaller shelf footprint though. Hoping for a blu-ray like they did with The Prisoner.

Lots of Avengers fans are hoping for a Blu-ray ;-)

There's a nice 39-disc region 2 set of every (surviving) episode that sells for about 100 once VAT is removed on Amazon UK. I'm waiting for a price drop.

If this show is still popular in the UK, it wouldn't surprise me if it got the Blu-ray treatment.

It's still going for 260 on Amazon. I used to blind buy a lot of sets, esp. during DD's B1G1 sales. There are very few DVDs or sets that I won't sell if the price becomes high enough. But there are a few

The packaging on this set has been changed and much improved. It is now in two thick DVD cases with each disc on an individual hub that you can flip through. No problem reaching the disc you want and no floaters in the package I received.
