i think scars of love put it the best.

since each volume comes out every two months, it's not as if you can't save up $20. unless you wanna buy the four which are out at the same time, then you'll be spending at least $80. ouch.

The chances that FUNimation will actually release a full box set are very slim. I don't think they've even ever released an entire series on one box set before.

I got most of mine from best buy. It's the same as target. And they have a lot more anime. Of course pre-order isn't too bad either. It probably depends on where everything goes on sale. I'm waiting for the 2nd game.*sigh*

We all have pain, and hurt inside
When the snow falls I want to cry.
For I will never meet my father, or my brother thats passing fast
I will never see a day to laugh
I'll just lie there, dying on the grass
For all I've known is sorrow.
And cannot express any sign of joy
So I will continue to follow,
The path that is chosen for me,
And if I die, well
no one will care, so I will carry on
And when I die the only fear I will know
Is if the Gates of Heaven open
And I will be safe.

First:
I don't have a lot of money, or inteligence huh.gif , and I was wondering if I should buy the box and Vol. 1 and then buy them until I have the full box set, or If I should just wait for the whole box set to be avalible and then purchase it as a full set.

Second:

What is the best place to find all of the current avalible FMA to buy or pre-order?

I think you should wait because it makes it easier to just get all the dvds in one and get it for one price. That's my opinion!

People have been talking a lot about the 2nd box set lately and I've done my best to research and, right now, their is no "official" word on what is being included in it.

Considering that the first one merely included Volume 1 (Ep. 1-4) and the soundtrack, my guess it was include Volume 6 (which is the volume being released with it) plus possibly another soundtrack, along with artwork, etc.

It probably won't be a boxed set of the episodes, since by that time they will have not yet even released all episodes from season one onto DVD.

Finally, the thing won't come out until late November, so the producers may not have even decided on what will be in it. The only info we have concerning it's release is in the accompanying booklet in the latest release, Volume 4.

release dates:
disc 5 Sept 20
disc 6 Nov 15
box set #2 Nov 15

from what I've heard box set #2 is going to be similar to box set #1 only it will include the modern soundtrack (updated/additional songs)

I seriously doubt that funmation would release a series box set any time soon. They would lose so much money. If they do make a series box set it would be after FMA is OVER. Right now they are soaking $20-30 a disc depending where you shop, they are raking it in BIG TIME and it will continue that way I feel, till the show has ended. Then shortly after that they will release a whole series box set in several extreamly attractive cases with extra bonus features and maybe even a special figurene or two......and a ton of people will buy them.....even the ones who already bought the regular discs. Why you ask, because that is how the industry works sad.gif

so my advice to any FMA fan who can save $20-30 every few months....just buy'em now and enjoy watching them over and over, any time you want like I do. I dont look at it like I'm losing money in the long run, I look at it like I'm spending $30 once every few months to treat myself to some thing I enjoy a lot smile.gif .

Another thing I noticed is that WalMart, Target, and Best Buy (by me any way) stopped carrying FMA. They all had discs 1 & 2 then none of them had disc 3 untill 3 weeks after the official release date, Target finaly got it in. As far as disc 4....niether of them got it in, still to this day I dont see it in any of those stores sad.gif but I am thankfull that the FYE (like a samgoodie) have them stocked first thing on the release day biggrin.gif I pay $30 dry.gif but at least I get what I love and I dont have to waste time and gas searching all the other places to get it.

anyone else have trouble finding the discs?

That's strange, the Walmart and Best Buy near me has the latest in stock. I usually go to Walmart, because its guarenteed they'll have the latest release, although maybe not the older ones, but Best Buy is pretty unreliable.

If I'm desparate I go to Movie Stop, which is like FYE and pay the ridiculous $30.
