If it's $140 sounds like they're still worth a hell of a lot - sealed - anyway.

Another one of those samus figures sold for $200 may 24th.

From what I hear, you're better off with the DVD version. No real extras to be found (typical for a FUNimation release) and the quality is just upscaled from the DVD, rather than a genuine HD upgrade.

Unless it was actually damaging to the picture quality (as in the case of Samurai Champloo) the blu-ray releases are still better just for the sake of an HD audio track and being in full screen (imo at least). Plus, with the way these amazon sales work, the blu-rays are often less than the DVDs for some weird reason.

I will say I watched it in "HD" on netflix streaming. The image is pretty gross. It's unfortunate too, as I was planning on picking up the blu, but after seeing it upscaled and washed out like that, i'll pass.

I was just going to order it on blu the other day, I'm glad I stalled. I guess I'll just go with DVD.

Don't judge by Netflix. I watched Claymore in HD on there, and my blu-ray set of it looks much better. The sound is also better (obviously)

By full screen, do you mean as in 4:3 or just filling up the whole screen? Because shows like FLCL weren't made in 16:9 and aren't formatted as such. FUNi especially learned their lesson after the massive backlash they got for cropping Dragon Ball Z on DVD and passing their shitty remasters off as "gained footage."

Picked these two volumes at Ross for $3.88 each:

I mean filling the whole screen. To my knowledge none of funi's blu ray releases have the cropping issues of DBZ regardless of their native aspect ratio.

Yeah, mainly because they leave them in their native aspect ratios. So it'll fill the screen if it happens to be widescreen series. DBZ had the issues because they took a series that's normally in 4:3, cropped it into 16:9 and tried to claim you were getting more footage, when the loss of footage was greater than gain.
