Box Set of the Year Award goes to this Japanese release, a collection of 93 Yujiro Ishihara DVDs: 90 movies starring Ishihara plus 3 bonus discs (and a couple of books, PR materials, etc.). It costs about $2700.
The runner-up is this box set of 36 Yujiro Ishihara CDs (about $1000). In addition to 514 songs in "high-fidelity SHM-CD format", it has (among other items) a DVD with some concert films, some facsimiles of Ishihara's handwritten letters and a painting, a frame for the painting, a few books and, my favorite, a "Yujiro voice sound alarm clock".
