    There are a few OOP titles, notably Crying Freeman and Venus Wars

    Thanks again to you both for convincing me to give Clover Media another chance. I ordered it and it was indeed the Amazon edition, and it arrived in perfect condition (in a shipping box exactly as Hayate described). Obviously saved quite a bit of money as well, since Amazon clearly didn't want it given the condition of the sets (and typical reckless packaging) they sent me. Par for the course for Amazon.

    Hmmm, thanks for the info. Was the boxset itself in perfect condition, and did they package it so that it would be protected during shipping? I suppose at that price I may as well order it no matter what, but I'm still hoping to get a mint copy, which obviously was too much to hope for via Amazon's typical shipping quality.
    The outside of the set is in perfect condition. I haven't removed the shrinkwrap and opened it, since I'm probably going to just gift it to someone, so I can't speak for the set's contents. To play to anyone's paranoia, there's always the possibility that the set was opened at some point and the contents rummaged through and/or partially removed and the box re-shrinkwrapped, but who knows? I highly doubt it, of course.

    That being said, I can't recall how many reports (or not) there were of damage to the items back when it was originally released, since there's too much space in the box for the contents and they all bounce around quite freely.

    The set was shipped in a cardboard box that was almost the same size as the set itself, which was good enough for me. I'm personally a fan of using boxes larger than the contents and adding packing material or spacers a la TRSI (it's also how I pack and ship all my eBay sales), but the next best thing is making sure there is little to no extra space, which was the case here.

    As a general comment, I've ordered from Clover Media a bunch of times, via eBay and their (now defunct) Amazon Marketplace storefront, over the past couple of years, and never had any issues, except for one occasion where I had one item missing from a multi-item order, where it turned out they ran out, and they promptly replied to my message and then issued me a refund.

    They were the ones clearancing out a bunch of the Sankarea LE broadcast version a while back, which is perhaps how some folks here might be familiar with them without realizing it. For a while they were pushing quite a bit of new FUNimation product at liquidation prices, some of which you can see referenced earlier in this thread. For example, I grabbed a copy of the Shana movie for $3 one time, amd some other LEs for less than $20. And on very rare occasions they would end up with some of the weirdest stuff (I have my theories as to why, but nothing concrete) that they would then price way low just to move it, perhaps not quite knowing what they actually had their hands on; and thus I acquired a new copy of the Japanese Blu-ray box of Shigofumi for $55.

    It's been a while since they've had anything too interesting, anime-wise, though. This Space Dandy set is probably the most notable anime item they've had for some time. There are a few other FUNimation items they're selling, for low prices, though not exactly amazingly low.

    Oof that's rough. At least they cancelled it though.

    Re: Random anime eBay listings spotted on eBay

    I attempted to purchase this a few weeks back, as it seemed like a great deal, but I was a little hesitant due to some inconsistencies with the listing and the nature of the seller. The item title indicates it's for the Amazon Aloha Edition, but the UPC in the description is for the Limited Edition. Older product reviews from the seller indicate they received the Limited Edition, while newer ones indicate they got the Amazon Edition. The seller doesn't allow messages (either via eBay or attached to Paypal payments), so I couldn't clarify which item I was buying ahead of time. Once purchased, however, eBay allows users to send messages anyway, so I bought it then sent a message asking for them to cancel the purchase if it wasn't actually the Amazon Edition. They cancelled it without replying.

    I tried purchasing this from Amazon twice before, but given Amazon's stellar packaging, the collector's box arrived crushed both times. I gave up getting it from them, and have occasionally looked into getting it elsewhere since. If anyone does (or has) bought it from this seller and can verify they received the Amazon Edition (undamaged), please let me know.

    Unsurprisingly it's jumped up to $830 at the time of posting with 3 hours left. Glad I managed to get both sets before they went OOP.
