Monday's Headlines | Zelda: Legendary Edition Box Set

Viz Media has announced the Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition Box Set which collects all five volumes of the Legendary Edition manga that's based on the iconic Nintendo video game series. If you're unfamiliar, The five Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition releases each contain two volumes of the outstanding manga series complete with updated covers and color art pieces by Akira Himekawa. This new box set takes these releases a step further with a bundled hardcover upgrade. Pre-orders are live now, but there are a few things to keep in mind...

First off, the box set is available to pre-order here on Amazon for $79.50 (36% off) with shipping slated for October. Note that you won't be charged until it ships and you'll automatically get the biggest discount that occurs between the time that you order and the ship date. So, if you pre-ordered when this set launched at $125, there's no need to change anything. You've already got the discount.

The next thing to consider is that Amazon is currently running a buy 2, get 1 free sale on physical manga titles and two of the five paperback The Legend of Zelda: Legendary Edition titles are currently eligible. The others are significantly discounted. Links for those titles can be found below
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Legendary Edition: $13.69 (bonus $2.74 coupon)
The Legend Of Zelda Four Swords Legendary Edition: $15.28 (Eligible for B2G1 free sale)
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons / Oracle of Ages - Legendary Edition: $13.69 (bonus $2.74 coupon)
Legend Of Zelda Legendary Edition The Minish Cap / Phantom Hourglass: $14.86 (Eligible for B2G1 free sale)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask / A Link to the Past - Legendary Edition: $14.86

Finally, a box set of the 10 standard volumes of The Legend of Zelda manga can be ordered here on Amazon for $61.45. At that price, going with the box set (with a discount) or the paperbacks of the upgraded Legendary Editions (especially B2G1) is definitely the way to go.
