I'm willing to bet if they were rereleased now they wouldn't be cheaper than that either because it may surprise you to learn that Sailor Moon is not a huge profitable series in the US any longer and therefore would not sell very much, necessitating a high price point to make any sort of profit.
Also, if you're talking a dubbed American re-release, who ever releases it would likely have to redub the first two seasons. While ADV released the DVDs it was still dubbed by DiC, who cut the whole series and made changes, like making Zoisite a woman. I know you're talking about this hypothetical "new generation" but really, I can't see them marketing to this hypothetical group, they'd be pandering to us old fans and I can't see the "original DiC dub" being a big selling point. They'd be advertising it as "new and uncut" and in it's "original form" with Usagi, Ami, Rei. Makoto and Minako rather than Serena, Amy, Raye, Lita and Mina.
