I’ve seen the R2 Limited Edition Box Set for as low as US$90 on ebay, which isn’t too bad. Pre orders have apparently sold out already so it’ll be a nice collectors item.
As for the R3 DVD, it has been rumoured in
another thread that it is not uncut and that the R2 DVD is the only version with the colour HOBL scene. Don’t know if there’s any truth to this…[/quote]
Even cd-wow are now admitting, that the R3 Version is edited:
[quote] Thanks for your interest in CD WOW!
We have been advised today that the version of this DVD we have received
from our suppliers is not the version we were expecting.
There are no English subtitles during the Japanese dialogue sections - only
Chinese - and the extra scenes are in a mixture of colour and black and
white as opposed to the all colour edition we were expecting.
If there is anything else I can do for you please don’t hesitate to get back
Also have a look at this thread :

It’s for that I was ordering the R3 Version at amazon.co.jp. Including shipping to Germany (should be the same to the USA) and the first-time-buyer coupon it costs about 27 Euro (~ 33 USD ).
