Hi! Looking to grab a copy of Stardust Memory. Was it only released in singles and later in an Anime Legends set? I've seen another complete collection release so I was just wondering if it's legit.

http://www.amazon.com/​gp/​product/​B0009E32UC/​ref=​s9_simh_gw_p74_d0_i1​?​pf_rd_m=​ATVPDKIKX0DER&​pf_rd_s=​center-​2&​pf_rd_r=​0ENJVG7G1GCG929NGHR6​&​pf_rd_t=​101&​pf_rd_p=​1688200382&​pf_rd_i=​507846

Thanks!

it was released on VHS first
yes, that is legit
personally, it will probably be re-released and you can watch it on daisuki? maybe
so i wouldn't buy it unless it's cheap

There are the singles, then there is the Anime Legends brick which I have, and it was probably released again in multi-disc single-sized case like the other Gundam OVAs (0080 and 08th MS Team, I have this version for those). Those also say "Anime Legends" on them as well.

You're about a year too late to find anything Gundam other than Unicorn though, it went down with Bandai Ent. USA's sinking ship. Most of the places I know are out of copies and they are no longer in print, so about all you will find now is resellers of used copies. You will have to brave the Amazon Marketplace and Ebay cesspools of bootleggery if you want to find a legit copy of Gundam 0083, set your Minovsky particles to full density.

EDIT: Check your PMs for a link.

You will probably will have to pay through the nose if you want the whole series since it's long out of print.

It was released on DVD as 4 singles well over 10 years ago, then in 2005-ish as a DVD set the one pictured in the Amazon link. Then re-released one last time as a Anime Legends DVD set with a new cover. Last time it was available it was running 45-50 dollars for the entire series.

Checking Ebay the singles sold as low as 26.99 guy got lucky to as high as 150 dollars as of recent for the box set.

Kind of kicking myself for not picking up a copy before Bandai USA shutdown but I don't have the time to watch what I already have in my collection.

Hey, OP here. I managed to snag a copy of the one in my link for $50 on eBay. Not too bad in my opinion!

If you have a regionfree DVD player, you can get the Australian release for about $50. That's the cheapest release that you can get at the moment.

Prices for most of the Gundam releases went up after Bandai USA went out of business so it's definitely going to be difficult to find it at a reasonable price.
