Which is another source you can try is fye.com alot of people tend to ignore this site also.


Because fye.com often uses MSRP prices on their stuff, even on their used products. And you don't get the same deals you would in store, like the 50% off box sets or the Buy-3-Get-1-Free-Used deal.

Hit or miss i've had many cancellations and just as many successes...tbh. After many emails the manager responded to me saying if its in stock it will ship if not it will be cancelled :( not exactly helpful but he did say they had stock of alot of titles from bandai still in the singles and a few box sets but he never said of what. Best bet would probably be to call.


Lol. I just tried an order. 3/4 cancelled, and he sent me a message saying I could have Bebop for $100. At least he was quick about it.

I managed to get Haruhi Season 1 for $22 used on Gohastings with the 40% off coupon. They had .Hack//SIGN complete for $60~ regular price (40ish with the coupon, which I believe is expired now). I almost got that but I couldn't pull the trigger, and I have no idea if it's still available.

Thanks for the heads up. I have been looking for a relatively cheap G-Gundam Set 2 and Wing Set 1 since November. I just went ahead and bought both of them on anime pavilion but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Look two posts up. Not happening. If you get lucky and they have them in stock you can get them for $100 each, though!

Yeah, I saw your post. I was just hoping you didn't order any Gundam. I also didn't put two and two together that if Bebop went up to $100, then Gundam would too.

I have been looking for a decent and cheap copy of Wing collection 1 since November. I finally find one for $40 on eBay that's like new. I buy it last night and then this afternoon get on Amazon to see 1 new copy being fulfilled by Amazon for $33. Sometimes I feel like someone is out to get me.

This CAG has Stardust Memory 0083 for $20, which is an awfully good price for it if anybody is interested.

Managed to get igpx vol. 6 on ebay 10$ so I have all 7 volumes now for about 25$ total not too bad. Vol. 6 is hard to come by if anyone is looking or has started looking.... :/ Im still searching for gundam wing for a decent price. I have all of 0079,0083(stardust memory), 00, G Gundam, and Zeta Gundam. Want the rest but I didn't really care for Seed all that much idk why. And does anybody know anything about Gundam AGE? Is it worth picking up?

If you ever decide to grab any of the Seed discs, know that that & Seed Destiny are the ones that have the most problems with bad discs from Bandai. It usually is a problem with the last episode freezing up too.

As for Gundam AGE, that's the newest Gundam show. But it never got a physical release here. So if you're grabbing the BRs, they're imports(& probably w/o english subs). As for the show, it's kinda average for a Gundam show that spans two generations of characters. Although a lot of people hated it because it's considered the "kid-friendly" version of Gundam.

Gundam AGE went 3 generations. The story ends with Flit's grandkid.

The show itself has slightly kiddy designs (specifically during the First Generation) but story-wise is one of the darker and bloodier entries yet. It isn't perfect by a long shot, but AGE is still pretty good.

I paid 18 for a used copy shipped on Jan 1. Keep checking. I think this one is just more rare than valuable.

Yeah, the prices for Wing have been coming down over the past couple of weeks. I wish this was true of G-Gundam. Well, it is true, and none of them are selling, but they are still absurdly priced. Seriously, if anybody can hook me up with a reasonably priced G-Gundam let me know, I've been looking for about a month. I could have gotten them for an okay price on eBay, but I had already placed an order that fell through after somebody else bought them.

I have hear almost unanimously bad things about AGE. I think it is best to make up your own mind, unless it will cost you a fortune to do so.

Depending on what is in my local shops last shipment I may or may not be able to get you G-Gundam it'll be 60$ total for both boxes(30$ a piece) if he gets them. I say if cause I know he is getting a large shipment of Bandai titles but as to what titles they are idk. All I know is he is getting Ronin Warriors complete sets cause thats specifically what I asked about. I went ahead and placed an order for 3 he is getting lol. Also gave him a list of stuff I wanted and he said he would hold for me. I just told him to call me when the shipment came and ill be there before he unboxes anyway. So ill probably be posting a list on here incase anybody wants anything ill also post the number also as I believe he does ship via phone order. So if its anything decent or a good stock amount ill let everyone know.

Barnes and Noble has Zeta Gundam Collection 1 for 45. Free shipping, and with tax you are basically paying MSRP. Not super cheap, but Part II isn't super expensive yet, still has a small stock at RightStuf, and you aren't likely to find a new one cheaper very often. If stock lasts until the next 10% or so off not a bad deal.

Went ahead and ordered from the best buy link I posted. If it doesn't come in 3 weeks ill start searching again(or if I get a cancellation prior to that) but for now all I have left that I want(if this comes through) personally is eureka seven complete collection vol. 2 and Turn A gundam... I may eventually get all the rest of the series if I can get decent prices but idk I need to start watching everything I picked up but im between work and class 8am-11pm monday-friday this semester. :(

I don't think turn a gundam exists in english in anything other than bootleg format at the moment. Hard to pay much for them, especially considering subs are usually supposed to be terrible.

No, it's not in english unless it's some fansub.

Bandai was going to release it here, but they shut down before it's release.

Yeah I know that. I still want a sub though. I do remember seeing the series subbed at a friends house. I don't believe there is a fansub in english done anywhere though... now my curiosity is peaked will do a search... :/.
