As I continue to flesh out my Dragon Ball video game collection with a complete-in-box copy of Dragon Power for the NES, I thought it might be appropriate for us to take a step back and re-evaluate why it is we collect “stuff” for this franchise, and how that collecting mentality has changed (or not changed!) over the decades. Do we still feel the need to collect various bits of merchandise? How about you all? What are your thoughts as you take a look at your own habits?
Episode #0309! VegettoEX and Hujio discuss the collector’s mentality. Why do we collect all this Dragon Ball stuff? How have our habits changed over time, if at all? Does the rest of fandom feel the same way we do, or does everything from geographic region to length of fandom come into play? News updates and more of your questions round out the episode!
