Quality of packaging is excellent - new illustrations grace the covers of
each of the gatefold jackets (housing 2 LDs each) and the box themselves.
Part I comes with the big box that houses the two smaller boxes. It is a
monster box!

As for the animation itself, if you've never seen the original series,
then you may not want to shell out hundreds of bucks for "dated animation"
if you must have eye candy for your anime. However, I've seen excellent
clearance deals for these box sets online before, so you may be able to
find a bargain somewhere. TokyoPop or UCI Anime used to have them on
clearance, but I think they are all gone by now.

Whoa, you probably missed out more than you thought. This SUCKS! Can't
you get your money back?

There is another solution, if you have a Japanese community in or near where
you live. Track down a mom and pop video rental store, they would surely
have the original Mobile Suit Gundam available on VHS, most likely taped off
a rebroadcast, too. That way you get to see the missing episodes without
spending much at all.
