* Music/GreenDay's ''¡Uno!'', '' ¡Dos!'' and ''¡Tré!'' were a "trilogy" of albums all released within the same year. Rather than re-release the albums as a box set later on, they released a special edition of '¡Uno!'' alongside the regular one, consisting of the album and a cardboard box designed to fit three CD cases: The idea was that fans would buy the other two albums as they came out and complete the "box set".

* ''The Foetus Of Excellence'' by [[Music/JGThirlwell Foetus]] was a limited edition box set featuring no actual music: The release consisted of an empty box designed to fit all of the records the band had released up to that point, plus an exclusive t-shirt. Despite this, it did manage to chart in the UK - fans presumably already owned all the music and just wanted some nice packaging and {{feelies}}.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' had two nine-disc DVD boxsets, each containing a random assortment of episodes. These later became usurped by ''The Twilight Zone: The Definitive Edition'' [=DVDs=], which compiled the episodes in broadcast order, dedicating one five-DVD set for each season (except for seasons 1 and 5, which each had an extra disc containing additional bonus features). ''These'' later became complemented by box sets under the banner ''The Twilight Zone: Fan Favorites'', each containing five discs recycled from the earliest compilations. Some time afterward, each season received a cheaply-priced, VanillaEdition DVD set. ''The Twilight Zone: The Fifth Dimension'' repackages the ''Definitive Edition'' [=DVDs=] together with discs of the '80s revival and more bonus features.

** 2017's ''A New Career in a New Town (19771982)'', which contains ''Music/{{Low}}'', ''[[Music/HeroesDavidBowieAlbum "Heroes"]]'' plus an EP of related bonus material, ''Stage'' and its 2017 remix, ''Music/{{Lodger}}'' and its 2017 Tony Visconti remix, ''Music/ScaryMonstersAndSuperCreeps'', and the non-album singles compilation ''Re:Call 3''. Time will tell if we'll get any more retrospective boxsets compiling the remaining thirty-four years of Bowie's material, though given the later box's criticisms for DigitalDestruction, it may not be anytime soon.

* As mentioned above, Music/DavidBowie[='s=] material has been the subject of quite a number of boxsets during and after the man's life:
** 1989's ''Sound + Vision'', compiling several demos, live recordings, and rare singles as both a retrospective of the singer and a pre-empter for the re-release of his twelve albums from 1969-1980 by Rykodisc. The boxset later got a reissue in 2003 with some of its material changed around.
** 2007's ''Bowie Box Set'', which compiles the [[Music/{{Outside}} three]] [[Music/{{Earthling}} Sony-owned]] [[Music/{{Hours}} Bowie albums]] alongside some bonus material.
** 2005's ''The Platinum Collection'', which compiles three [[GreatestHitsAlbum greatest hits albums]] based around Bowie's 1969-1974, 1974-1979, and 1980-1987 material.
** 2015's ''Five Years (1969-1973)'', which contains the albums ''Music/SpaceOddity'', ''Music/TheManWhoSoldTheWorld'', ''Music/HunkyDory'', ''Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars'', ''Music/AladdinSane'', ''[[CoverAlbum Pin Ups]]'', ''Live in Santa Monica [='72=]'', ''Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture Soundtrack'', the 2003 Kent Scott mix of ''The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars'', and the non-album singles compilation ''Re:Call 1''. This was the last boxset to be released during Bowie's lifetime.
** 2016's ''Who Can I Be Now? (19741976)'', which contains the albums ''Music/DiamondDogs'', ''David Live'' and its 2005 remix, ''The Gouster'', ''Music/YoungAmericans'', ''Music/StationToStation'' and its 2010 Harry Maslin mix, ''Live Nassau Colosseum [='76=]'', and the non-album singles compilation ''Re:Call 2''.
** 2017's ''A New Career in a New Town (19771982)'', which contains ''Music/{{Low}}'', ''[[Music/HeroesDavidBowieAlbum "Heroes"]]'' plus an EP of related bonus material, ''Stage'' and its 2017 remix, ''Music/{{Lodger}}'' and its 2017 Tony Visconti remix, ''Music/ScaryMonstersAndSuperCreeps'', and the non-album singles compilation ''Re:Call 3''. Time will tell if we'll get any more retrospective boxsets compiling the remaining thirty-four years of Bowie's material.
* 1997's ''Heart and Soul'' serves as a compilation of nearly everything that Music/JoyDivision recorded during their four-year lifespan. The only known piece not included in the set was the full version of "In a Lonely Place", which went undiscovered until 2011

** The ''Film/XMen'' franchise is bad with this. ''Film/XMen1'', ''Film/{{X2| XMen United}}'', and ''[[Film/XMenTheLastStand The Last Stand]]'' are available as ''X-Trilogy''. ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' can be added for ''X-Men Quadriliogy''. ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' can be added for ''X-Men Ultimate Collection''. If you also want ''Film/TheWolverine'', then you need ''X-Men and The Wolverine Adamantium Collection'', available both with and without a 3D version. Fans who ''don't'' want Wolverine's solo movies can get the first three pictures and ''First Class'' as the ''X-Men: Experience Collection''. Each tends to have a good amount of special features, but most lack the bonus disks from the solo releases.

Actually, the term 'Boxed Set' is falling out of use in the modern day, since series are rarely sold as separate videos or [=DVDs=] any more, so fitting them into a literal 'boxed set' is no longer an option. Instead, they are often kept in single [=DVD=] cases and listed as "the complete Xth season/series". Anime series seem to be the only ones that are still released with a few episodes on individual discs. Once all the individual discs have been released only then will the boxed set come out, typically at a substantial savings over the individual discs. For completists, some studios will even sell the empty box on their website. Meaning a hardcore collector will buy the individual discs at a premium, then pay even more money for an ''empty box''.

Boxed sets also tend to be utilized for certain music reissues every now and then; typically, these sets include either all of an artist's previously-released studio albums, a portion of their backlog corresponding to a certain era of their career (as is the case with the more recent Music/DavidBowie boxsets), or particularly large [[GreatestHitsAlbum greatest hits]] compilations.



* Music/TheCorrs released a 5 CD BoxedSet of all their studio albums in 2011.
* Parodied by Angry Samoans, who fit their first four releases in their entirety onto one CD and called the resulting compilation ''The Unboxed Set''.

** 1992's ''Shine On'', containing seven of the band's best-regarded albums, plus a collection of their 1960's singles.
** 2003's ''Oh By the Way'', containing all thirteen of their studio albums at the time, packaged in neat little facsimiles of the original gatefolds with a special 40th-anniversary poster by [[Creator/{{Hipgnosis}} Storm Thorgenson]].
** 2011's ''Pink Floyd: Discovery'', the kickstarter of the ''Why Pink Floyd...?'' re-release campaign; the boxset once again contained remasters of their full album backlog at the time, again in mini-gatefolds, with a 60-page artbook by Thorgenson.

** Rarer movies being brought together is what TheCriterionCollection's "Eclipse" line is all about, though they usually organize their sets by directors or production companies rather than lead actors. They also have plenty of box sets in the main collection.
