I have not so much box-set in my collection:

(I really hope for box for Batman: TAS)
And in next 1.5-2 months I'll finish another "box-set collection without box":

For sure I'm forgetting some but the core of my box-set collection is

all ST sets (TOS, Ron Jones, Giacchino de luxe, whatever)
all LOTR trilogy Complete Recordings
Herrmann at Fox
Goldsmith at Fox
Fantasy World of Irwin Allen
Indiana Jones box set
Arista SW trilogy
the fantastic and mammoth SW trilogy Original Radio Drama (15 or 20 CDs? I don't remember)
both X-files sets
Superman blue box
Friday 13th
Karate Kid (do BSG, Omen, Twilight Zone, Goldsmith Final Recordings box sets also count?)
Lethal Weapon
Elfman/Burton zoetrope box
HP and the Deathly Hallows set
the gorgeous Cowboy Bebop music box set
some "le cinema de composer X" box set (X = Jarre is my favourite)


and the weirdest soundtrack box I have is Nightmare before Christmas in Jack Skellington head-case

Box sets are fantastic, even if expensive. I currently own:
The Lord of the Rings Complete Recordings (minus Two Towers, which I recently sold for college $)
Possibly all of LLL's: MOH, Friday the 13th, Star Trek, both volumes of X Files
Varese's Conti Boxes - Karate Kid, North and South Books 1 and 2
FSM's Star Trek: The Ron Jones Project and Superman Box

I've got...

Star Trek TNG Ron Jones - FSM
Star Trek TNG Volume 1 - La-La Land
Star Trek DS9 Collection - La-La Land
Karate Kid set - Varèse
Indiana Jones set - Concord
Star Wars The Original Trilogy Special Editions - RCA
Star Wars The Original Trilogy Anthology

I did have the Superman FSM Blue Box but gave it away. I'm thinking about buying it again though before it sells out.

For the Star Wars OT S.E. sets they are the original ones with the holographic CDs.

Although not sure if this considers "box set" or not... but I also have

Star Trek The Motion Picture - La-La Land
Star Trek II The Wrath Of Khan - FSM
Star Trek III The Search For Spock - FSM
Star Trek IV The Voyage Home - Intrada
Star Trek V The Final Frontier - La-La Land
Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country - Intrada
Star Trek Generations (Complete) - GNP
Star Trek First Contact (Complete) - GNP
Star Trek Insurrection (Complete) - GNP
Star Trek Nemesis (Complete) - Varèse Note: Coming soon
Star Trek 2009 both OST and D.E. - Varèse
Star Trek Into Darkness OST

Oh boy, am I really the first one to mention these two coffrets?

A treasure!

Godzilla Perfect Box Set Collection (1-6)
Herrmann at Fox
Miklos Rozsa Treasury
FSM MGM Black Box
Elmer Bernstein Filmmusic Collection Box
Lord of the Rings Complete Collection (1-3)
Laurie Johnson Box Collections (3 boxes so far)

the most extravagant set that I own, however, is the Bear Family Records set,

To be honest, I really don't care for multi-film box sets because, more often than not, I have to buy stuff I don't want in order to get the stuff I do want. I bought the Superman and Lethal Weapon boxes even though I wanted only the first score in those respective film series. The Indiana Jones box is a greater value to me because I love three of the four scores with that set. The only box set where I did want absolutely everything is the LLL ST:TOS television soundtracks. Price was no object on that one.

I much preferred the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings individual releases (even though I did want all of those scores!).

I seems like SUPERMAN has quite a constituency. I wonder if that's the big box that sold the most units.

Another "would-be boxset collection with a box" would be McCreary's Battlestar Galactica CDs from LLL.

Varese's Lost & Fringe collections would be two more that would look nice in a slipcase.
