I can't find "SIMPSONS-SEASON 6" in the box set anywhere!

It must be a conspiracy. I can find a box set for every season from one to ten, except for season 6. Every store I go to, i flip through the box sets, and when I get to six, I see the stupid HEAD!!

I tried online, too! Saw the box set, ordered the box set, got the HEAD! Returned it with a note, asked for the box set, then got the HEAD again! I sent it back AGAIN, telling them if they can't send me the box set, then I want a refund!

I got the refund.

This is crazy. I'm hellbent on not getting the HEAD, at the expense of not getting season six.

Heh, my collection also skips over Season 6 for the anal reason of not wanting the plastic head.

Do you know for sure that it was re-released in the box packaging? I was under the impression that for awhile you could have ordered a box from the Studio, only the successive seasons were released in head and box versions.

Yes, I once too saw the box. At the time, however, I was without funds. Shoulda crooked it when I had the chance...

I actually rebought it in the box and sold my head w/ lame mail-away box on ebay a year or two ago. So it does exist. It was out about the time of the movie, because mine came with a free ticket.

There's got to be some on ebay.

I have to admit "The Head" is a pain in the @$$ to open, however it is nowhere near as bad as the 11th Season "Accordion" Package!

(In the case of the Latter I Took out the "Accordion" and placed the disks in some Thin-Pack "Jewel" Cases that I use for my Home Videos, and placed them back in the Box, they fit nicely!)

It was rereleased in the box packaging around the time the movie was released. However, I haven't seen it since.

lol...that is the only "head" season I have as well.

I sent in the mail-in certificate to get a replacement box some time around Christmas '07. You had to send a check/money-order for $3-5 for shipping. Well, it's been over a year now and no box...I forgot about it for some time, so I don't know if the check was cashed or not.

I got it in the box at Sam's Club around the time the movie was in theaters.

The UPC was 024543-250999.

I only found the season six box at circuit city back when it was re-released, I have yet to see it at any other store since.

I had the same problem as well until a few months ago when I finally found one at Costco. Maybe give that a shot?

I took a shot with Amazon Used.....i'll let you know if I get dupped again - or lucky. Either way, if I get Head again, I'll learn to like it.

Did you try calling the 1-800 # for the replacement?

The "replacement box" that was offered to head case purchasers was not a true box like all of the other seasons (up until 11) have been released in....it was more of a slip cover style "box" that had an open top you would slide the flip pages book (from inside the original plastic head) into and out of, so that it almost matched the other boxes on the shelf...
The only way to get an actual, full enclosed matching box was the repurchase the sixth season when it was re-released in the true matching box packaging, which included the full size plastic & cardboard insides....
