Dubbing is actually very expensive in general too.
For some reason, dubbing "Sailor Moon" into any language costs MORE than dubbing any other anime, which is why some countries decided not to re-dub the series.
Now, I simply don't understand why "Sailor Moon" costs more than other series. It is not TOEI, either, because Funimation managed to dub "Dragon Ball" into English, and the "Battle of the Gods" movie, which Funimation released this year, can be purchased for as little as U$17.99 on Amazon.
My opinion on the VIZ sets: overpriced (possibly due to the new dub). If it's selling well is because fans have been thirsty for a proper DVD-BD release for more than a decade. It shouldn't cost that much money, IMO. And it's exactly because it costs so much money that fans deserve a flawless release with excellent picture quality.
Just my two cents.
