I just noticed that Amazon has finally posted Volume 4's artwork
, though they have been taking pre-orders for Volume 4 for some time now. They were lagging behind several other sites. This is interesting given the fact that they probably sell more DVD's in a day than these other sites do in a year. So one might understand that they are a very busy online retailer (in the top ten I'm sure), but all the more reason to be up to date.
I'm also puzzled by Amazon's current price of $21.99, for Volume 4. With the previous three sets, including Volume 3's current price
, they have offered an introductory price of $16.99. The price has then gone up to $19.99, Volume 1 and 2's current price.
I know this isn't an issue for us die-hard fans, who will gladly pay more if we have to, but I'm just curious as to the cause of the price increase. A phone call to Amazon was not helpful. The customer service reps are not privy to such information. Anyone have any info on the price increase?
