    $300 is way too much when all I want is Mach Go GO. I'm not even sure I'm going to like the show since I don't care for its dub counterpart.

    This is a fancy package Collector's Edition reissue. The standard box set was released in May and is about $20 on Amazon right now.

    That doesn't include Mach Go Go.

    Yes. I have no interest in the English dub.

    I don't blame you. The original Blu-ray set claimed to have Japanese 2.0 audio, but reading up on it, that appears to have been a packaging error and the discs are English only. I can see why you wouldn't want that.

    Ooooooooooooh, my bad. I should have realized you didn't know that the other set didn't include the Japanese version. Yeah, that was a mistake on Funimation's part and stores were supposed to pull the incorrect packaging and send them back for corrected ones, but stores like Walmart clearly didn't care since they still have the incorrect packaging version.

    I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. I've taken the set off my Amazon wish list.
