That was probably from their 3 day sale. Ended on Thur. I think? I've had sales ended while I was thinking things over too, so I know how it is.

RS does these clearance sales every so often, so hopefully you'll get them next time =)

right stuf has a flash sale and I just wanted to vent a little.

Part 1 of Bodacious Space Pirates and Robotics;Notes are on sale for $9 and $10 respectively.

https://www.rightstu...Limited-Edition

https://www.rightstu...ollection-2-Hyb

 

I thought, oh that's great I'll just buy the second parts too to complete the collection for cheaper than buying the whole set. Nope. The second parts for both shows are long out of print. And in the case of Space Pirates, the complete collection is OOP as well. I'm just like. If Rightstuf would just price their shit reasonably well from the beginning they wouldn't have left over dead stock copies from shows from almost 10 years ago. Why would anybody bother buying the first parts if you need both to completely see the show?

Is the problem Rightstuf or MSRP?

Robotics;Notes is now available in an essentials set. $20 at Best Buy. $25 at Amazon. $26.24 at RS.

 

I only see part 2 of BSP up on RS for $8.75. The complete collection is up on Amazon right now for $21.99 (5 left). Less if you go with a third party. https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B00LBU7O48/

I understand the frustration, but they're also a business looking to make money and employ people. They can't just sell everything at a loss.

I'm not asking them to sell things at a loss I'm asking them to sell things competitively. It makes no sense to sell an item for MSRP on their site when BestBuy, Amazon and even Walmart sells the same item for a much lower price. My point is that if they had sold those items competitively from the beginning they wouldn't have to sell the left overs for 70% off or more. Hell, they may have even sold them for more than they are now if they had done so from the very beginning.

By the Rightstuf Holiday 2017 sale, part 1 was already out of stock. Apparently, we didn't do a 2018 or 2019 Rightstuf thread.

 

The complete collection has been as low as $31.50 on Rightstuf, if not lower.

 

I'm willing to bet it's been $20ish during a Sentai sale.

 

But it's also hard to argue for them to keep stock of a much older version of a title, and one that's not super popular. Even stuff like Cowboy Bebop has been out of print at one point or another.

Takagi-san S1 BR pre-order for $6.99: https://www.amazon.c...uct/B084Z13QDT/

This is a Funimation Essentials re-release of S1 and likely a price mistake as msrp is $30. Credits to SD.

-Update-
Price is now $23. Looks like they meant to post $7 off, not $7 total ^^;

My phone isn't letting me upload a pic, but it's green and yellow; very noticeable with the pink logo.

So it's this https://www.amazon.c...1/dp/B00X5UIUEU or am I wrong. I know the release is supposed to have a variety issues I think one was dubtitles and I thought it lacked a play all or something odd like that. I'm still surprised Dollar Tree has any anime but that's pretty cool.

Yeah, that's the one; it's in a cardboard slipcase the with the same design so it's pretty much impossible to miss.

I was surprised about the dubtitles. But I always wanted to get into the series so this was as good a chance as any.

So far I haven't been able to find it. The only stuff I found was animated DC and marvel movies.

Thanks for mentioning this--I bought the latest JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable volume (5), the upcoming volume (6), and Volumes 1-10 of Vinland Saga. The MARBAM20 code worked like a charm; I can't say I'm a fan of the $0.99 per item shipping charge, though.

You can join their “Millionaires Club” for $25 a year. You get 10% off in store, in store coupons, and free shipping on all items. I have a Books A Million close to me, so I use the membership a lot. If you don’t, then it’s not too worth it.

Same. I'm surprised this is the price mistake they draw the line at when they've let so many other things go.

I honestly can't remember the last price mistake Amazon allowed.

Amazon honored its price on the complete bluray of the Good Place a few weeks ago, which they sold for $5.99 (instead of $59.99).

As part of Rightstuf's birthday celebration, I got a code for a free $25 Blind Box item with a $75 order and just unboxed it. 

 

Picked up Case Closed Episode "One" , Lupin The Third The Complete First Series, and all three volumes of Batman and the Justice League.

 

 

The $25 Blind Box item was Casshan: The Complete Original TV Series (Blu Ray) which is currently $45. I'm very impressed as the last time I orered a $25 Blind Box, I got Volume 3 of a series (Think it was Moribito).  

 

Rightstuf also included a pack of El Hazard Playing cards (it even has the Pioneer logo on the package).  Well done, Rightstuf.

Do I get paid for watching that shit or is this the antithesis of a deal?

Even though it doesn't appear to be anime technically, anyone know if the Valerian series is any good?
