    I did not think these were still around sealed, but I found a set on Ebay, less $ than most pay for used too. Now I just need Epi 2 in December... [​IMG][​IMG]

    sealed doesn't equal new....another ebay tactic. Good luck though.

    FWIW; I have had 4 of these sets since they came out, one can tell a repack used copy versus NEW. IMHO, not every Ebayer is out to screw someone. Although, I am sure their are some that are.

    What did you get, the SE THX box set? I just got one of those, too, and it was also new. I believe it was a genuine new/sealed package because upon opening it, it had a distinctive "new" smell, the shrinkwrap had the gold THX/DD sticker and the Special Bonus Features/UPC sticker, the insert was perfect and fingerprint-free, and all the sleeves were absolutely perfectly flat and all the discs were perfectly clean and absolutely scratch-free.
    I paid $120 + $10 S&H. I don't know how that compares to your purchase, but I'm happy with that price, I don't feel that I was ripped off.
    On the way I have a set of all three original version LDs, the "faces" versions from 1995. Sometime in the near future I hope to get ahold of an excellent-condition "definitive" set from 1992. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I picked up the SE boxset for 68 bucks (shipped) a little over a year ago. Awesome 5.1 even besting some of todays mixes.[​IMG]
    BTW, EP2 will be released on 11/12.[​IMG]

    Mine had all the stickers too, paid right at $100 w/shipping. I have paid more for used sets too.[​IMG]
