Around $165 dollars. And for the Canuckleheads of Seibertron, it'll be out the week before (next Tuesday).

I did not realise that the release date was the same as ROTF, therefore I can only deduce that I am not savvy. Which makes me sad. :(

I still wanna know what the episode order is on this DVD set. Production number? Original airdate? Certain ones moved around to better fit the continuity?

Either way, I'm very tempted to get this (even though I have the Rhino ones already) because of the bonus content and the more portable packaging, but why is this kind of stuff always too rich for my blood? :roll:

First, Rhino...then the tin can...and now you...it's a pain my wallet that you tempt me with another set.

Throws Restraint-icon out of Unicron and unleashes the power of this Matrix boxset (after I buy it of course)

Let that day mark the end of all new sets, as we save money for a new age of peace and more figures....Til all are one!!!

Credits roll, and the fandom cheers.

It woulda been nice if they just put them on blu-ray, with less discs and a lower price. They might in a few years, but wonder what the exclusive stuff will be then??

Weapon: Sword
This box set is one of the first things my friends notice when they're checking out my collection. "Wow, you have all of the episodes?"

I'm very happy with it, although I moved all the discs to a CD book, so I didn't have to open the box every time I wanted to watch an episode. The ONLY thing I don't like about this set is that the entirety of the box is constructed from cardstock, so it's A) not very durable, and easy to damage, and B) colors wear off rather easily over time on cardstock, so I'm very worried about wear on the bottom.

Cover 2: Megatron
Cover 3: Hot Rod
Cover 4: Galvatron

The same Megatron image is also used at the bottom of the box, underneath all the stacked DVD cases, but in silver.

Here's my box set, I apologize for the low resolution. I took the pictures with my iPhone camera, as my digital camera was charging: http://picasaweb.google.com/kumori.kaze ... hipBoxSet#
