    Hi,

    I've just been browsing the CD Japan website, and discoverd what must be the biggest DVD boxed-set I've ever seen.

    Click here! :eek: :eek:

    Can anyone find anything bigger, and more expensive than this?! :rotfl:

    More to the point, would any of you actually spend this much, on just one DVD film/TV series?! :zonked:

    Pooch

    But star trek next gen at 60 notes a series x 7 is approaching 500 sheets.

    xfiles seasons 1 to 6 cant be far behind, I've probably paid 300 for that lot.

    $827 US$ is only just over £500 thats for 152 episodes. At 22 (ish) eps per season (US style) then that would be about 7 seasons worth

    seems about right

    i like the fact that they still consider 100 pages to be a booklet rather than a proper book.

    I like the fact you get an action figure with it. We'd all prefer a star wars boxed seet with Luke or Obi-wan doll:smashin:

    Hi Again,

    Expensive? Certainly!

    Value for money? Depends on how much you have to have the complete series, AND the action figure!

    Justifiable price? Well, bearing in mind the Japanese do tend to do a lot of rare boxed sets, that are genuinely rare (i.e. less than 1000 get made, sometimes even going as low as just 250 in total), then you kind of understand why some people may be tempted to buy the set.

    Also, you have to bear in mind that a) unless youlive in Japan, you ain't going to be able to get hold of it, and b) if/when that set hits Ebay, the price is going to skyrocket to an unbelievably high and stupid price. Oh, and did I forget to mention that the set doesn't have English subtitles or dubbing, either?! :rotfl:

    DVD's and pre-recorded VHS tapes are almost always expensive/VERY expensive in Japan.

    Takeshi Kitano's 'DOLLS' was recently released for 5000yen which is about £26. It's just a one DVD, bare bones disc too.

    Specialist DVD's such as sports will often be around 6000yen and up depending on the potential popularity of the discs.

    Video's are way more expensive though. I've seen 2 video sets cost around £50 before.
