Do all completed manga eventually get a box set release?

I'm planning on purchasing all the Pandora Hearts manga, but after doing some research, it would cost $300 to buy on Amazon or $200 on Rightstuf once all 23 volumes are out (assuming the price remains stable). I'd rather wait for a box set since it'll cost a bit less, but seeing as Pandora isn't exactly a huge title, I'm not sure about the chances of it getting one.

Not actually a purchase, but figured if anyone knew, it would be you guys.

No, actually very few manga series get box set releases in the US. (I'm assuming you're asking about the American release since you mentioned RightStuf.)

Yen Press doesn't have a history of releasing box sets. I wouldn't expect one for Pandora Hearts. Your best bet is to pick up books during sales. Coincidentally, RightStuf just started a Yen Press sale today. From today through August 21, all Yen Press books are at least 33% off which is usually the best discount I've found. Yen Press sales happen 2 or 3 times a year so you could pick up the series a few books at a time if you can't afford them all at once. (Just be sure to order enough to qualify for free shipping. )

That would explain why the volumes were so much cheaper than the ones on Amazon. I guess I picked a good time to start purchasing. Thanks!

--Edit--
Ack! I lied. Ended up splurging on this instead. (Before the premium editions sell out).

I got these a few days ago from Hobby Link Japan.



20 Space Battleship Yamato 2199 model kits from Bandai. The smaller ones as oppose to the 1/1000 scale kits that are much larger and 10 times more expensive...or more even.



..

They compliment an earlier order I got in August that has some 1/1000 scale ships as well as a nice toy from Megahouse.

I just bought Guin Saga the other day. It sucks the anime didn't continue, to cover all 130 LNs, even thought it will never have a ending anyway, this type of anime/story would've benefited a lot from such. It was only 35 bucks, so it was a no brainer purchase, but damn, I spent so much money this year on anime, It's not funny.

To make matters worse, there's two Japanese box sets I want next year, that alone costs how much I spent this year.

These seem like snap kits. Haven't built one yet. These are small models and I guess customs doesn't do anything for that here. Still roughly $20 USD for shipping for 20 x $4 USD model kits...makes each kit $5 basically.

The earlier stuff was expensive though. The large 1/1000 scale Dommel's battleship was I think $95 by itself. Fortunately I'm buying for a group of people so we spead it out two or three ways. That one is for display at gaming conventions along with the 1/1000 scale Yamato. The Megahouse ship is for actual gaming as are a few of the other model kits (the many carriers, Dessler's large battleship, and the Comet Empire ships). The rest were because the others wanted whole sets of the new Yamato 2199 Mecha Collection to go with their old Yamato Mecha Collection sets from 30 years ago.

I was looking into getting a Cosmo Zero model or something to put on my shelf but from what I could gather those kits require paint and I completely suck at painting so I got myself a nice Real Grade Exia Gundam instead

Also, this finally came in the mail!

The small kits do need painting in many cases, thought they do thend to have the plastic in at least a base color or two.

The larger 1/1000 kits tend to not need painting as the pieces come in the color in plastic.

I have been meaning to buy the 2199 1/500 Yamato.

But domestically its freaking expensive, and I usually have no room to bring it back with me when I go to Japan. What to do...

Edit: Never mind, I just saw Amazon had it for about $109. Friggin cons want $150 plus for this!

I think the figure is nice, but I wish she actually resembled Murata's style.
