Brand New in box. The product ships with all relevant accessories
A challenger appears!
I think the heart of the matter is, in the words of Gabe Newell (Blessed be His name);
"We think there is a fundamental misconception about piracy. Piracy is almost always a service problem and not a pricing problem," he said. "If a pirate offers a product anywhere in the world, 24 x 7, purchasable from the convenience of your personal computer, and the legal provider says the product is region-locked, will come to your country 3 months after the US release, and can only be purchased at a brick and mortar store, then the pirate's service is more valuable."
I used to pirate video games all the time, but since I stated using Steam I've almost completely stopped it. I already have more games in my library than I could possibly finish playing for the foreseeable future, and it's provided by an affordable and reliable service. There's just no reason for me to look elsewhere.
The Anime industry needs to emulate this. Today I can legally download a huge selection of video games but for most anime shows legal streams are simply not available. There needs to be a reliable service which doesn't block out big parts of the world. Not to justify my piracy but I do think producers share some of the blame for why piracy is as widespread as it is. Why is it completely impossible for me to legally watch their show even if I'm willing to pay for it?
It's also the fact that often buying these shows is outrageously expensive. I mean, just compare:
The first 7 Episodes of Sword Art online on DVD cost about as much as the full second season of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray
The limited edition Blu-ray release of the 11 episode run of Nisemonogatari costs about the same as Pre-ordering the entire 62 episode run of Breaking bad on blu-ray
The first season of Haruhi Suzumiya on DVD costs more than All 8 Harry Potter movies on Blu-ray
It may look like I'm cherrypicking but I'm really not. When you buy anime the amount of content you get for your money is far less than if you spend that same amount of money on western shows. This is one of the reasons I own relatively few anime series. I can only accept these kinds of prices if I absolutely must own the show. I do hope you take the price factor into consideration, I feel it's often overlooked and I do think it's one of the things that keeps sales so low. I mean, Haruhi came out 7 years ago. Western shows that old can usually be found for peanuts. One Anime I genuinely wanted to buy was Shinsekai Yori but the series was split in 9 Volumes each costing about 50-80$. Even as a huge fan of the series I just don't have that kind of money.
Amazon has the Harry Potter collection on sale for $28 for a black friday deal, and it's Blu-ray...had to get it!
I got u fam: https://www.amazon.com/Harry-Potter-Complete-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B005OCFHHK
I got this one because it's cheap, looks good on the shelf, and doesn't take up buttloads of room. https://www.amazon.com/Harry-Potter-Complete-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B005OCFHHK
I had this one on an Amazon list for Christmas a few years ago. I like it, watched all the movies and didn't notice anything missing. I'm pretty sure there was bonus content on the discs too, bonus scenes or outtakes.
I know it seems like it should cost more for 8 discs, but the cost of blu ray is coming down as digital becomes more popular.
I love her too! I have Love Actually, and Saving Mr. Banks and just watched Sense and Sensibility on Netflix the other night! I have Harry Potter on my list already but that's far too extravagant. I forgot she was the mom in Brave! and now I want cake, something with a cream cheese frosting sounds amazing. /u/bunnysoup I bit the heads off my peep bunny treats and thought of you also you're kind of swell I suppose. /u/Zoobles88 send more snaps it's always lovely to see your face! /u/kickballa we need to get to know each other better, but I can tell I'd probably like you already. =]
Have no fear. Blurays are 5 dollars more.
For only 44.99.
Link without someones referral code.
The full collection on Blu-Ray is only $39.96 on Amazon right now (sadly not 4K).
WTF is this?! Why can't I find this anywhere? Best I can find is this.
I see the Tesco link above, but is there a US version of this?
At the moment, I believe this is the best (and cheapest!) collector's set. The American box set only has the movie disks, no bonus disks.
Like others said, Amazon, but if you don't want to pay full price, I suggest tracking it with CamelCamelCamel.
Why not buy the Bluray set for $28
Goes on sale occasionally. I got it for $35 earliest this year.
Harry Potter, the complete set! Oh my goodness!
Tickle his pickle is bad advice because it often leads to a craving for pickles, even if you never liked pickles in the first place!
I nominate my mom! She loves watching movies with our family and since she's never seen any of the Harry Potter films, I figure this would be a good gift for her, and by extension, my entire family :) My mom is SUPER because she sacrificed her dreams of being a lawyer to be a stay at home mom and care for me and my siblings. I don't think she truly knows how much we appreciate her always being there for us.
Edit: And if that's too expensive, I know she'd like this or that.
Honestly I think they are cheaper on Amazon than they have been in a while. When I first started thinking about upgrading my old dvds to blurays, I couldn't find a set below $80. I bought them recently on Amazon UK for about $45. They are region-free, so they should work in any bluray player and shipping to the US was only a couple extra bucks. Took a couple weeks to get to me though. Good luck on your search!
You can actually get them MUCH cheaper here

I'm pretty sure this is the only one that has bluray other than the 32 disc boxset.
My SO and I would first, go to the dog park together. Protect the car seats and make sure to bring the tennis ball launcher to tire out both pups. Also, here are the tennis balls.
Light this delicious, romantic Woodwick candle. Mood lighting/smells.
Make some homemade pizzas. From scratch, using ingredients out of these canisters and you have to make the pizza together. Sharing rolling and flouring duties. Possibly throw flower. Music should be playing in background, like this Momford & Sons album. Perhaps we'd even bake cookies together.
While pizza is baking, bust out Scrabble or Twister, whichever fits your style. Include drinks.
After getting significantly tipsy, watch movies together, Possibly a few Harry Potter movies.
Read books together. I'd read this new one by J.K. Rowling. Go to bed really late after doing some "adult things" together. Sleep on these warm sheets.
Thanks for the contest. I'm actually single, but this is a future, a-girl-can-dram plan for myself. ;)
Amazon had a deal on this on cyber Monday for $99, so I pounced. I had been waiting awhile to get a box set because I wanted a Blu-Ray one, but I didn't want that $700 one with all that other crap, and I didn't want the $39 one without any special features.
I almost missed this one because when I read the comments and reviews, they all said "No special editions" so I dismissed it. Then I found they had lumped the reviews for the $39 one in with this sale item, and then took the plunge.
You can still purchase this particular box for $150 on Amazon, but if you're curious what it looks like or includes, check the album. Enjoy!
A blu-ray player
I have this one. It's got some bonus features and content and it's a decent price.
Oh, if only there were some way to purchase these movies and keep them forever, without depending on Netflix to renew streaming rights.
I'm not sure that this has all the special features though.
If you binge watched them you could get them done in as little as two days. As a 16 year old during summer, I've done it. Also there are 8 movies, the last book was split into 2.
Movies on Amazon if you're interested.
The books take significantly longer to finish obviously.
If you have any questions feel free to PM me. I've read and watched the whole series 10 times.
