Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Got my DBS: Broli Collector’s Edition from Amazon UK today. I originally had the steelbook ordered too but I managed to grab the US steelbook so I saw no purpose in owning two of the same thing. Really nice package! Are all slipcovers in the UK this durable? I really like how it’s a sideloader too. ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah but their original post about the 30th set, and the blog post, make it sound like they still feel 16:9 is the cuurent standard for DBZ and 4:3 is just for hardcore fans. From the 30th anniversary page: From the blog post: But now that FUNimation anniversary trailer uses 4:3 footage from the Bl...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Welp, the pre-order period ends tomorrow. They haven't given any updates since the original blog post so I will assume the end product will look like their screenshots. It sure would be disappointing if they did make improvements and didn't say anything about them. That would be the ultimate cherry...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I’m curious how many people out there calling this total trash own or have owned in the past a set of the orange bricks. I know you’re out there somewhere. Now there’s a trash release. I get it, people are angry because it’s marketed as an anniversary collector’s set and the remastering process they...

Re: Comparison shots from every single DBZ release

Like I’ve been saying, people assuming that Toei was doing a series remaster were just that - assumptions. There was never any evidence that one was being made. Toei doing a remaster for the movies and specials does not equal them doing a remaster for a 291 episode TV series. If one comes out, aweso...

Re: Custom Dragon Box covers/cases

When you can, get some photo paper because that'll make it pop even more. That's what I did for the R4 Saga of Goku to go with the rest of my Dragon Ball Saga sets. It really makes all the difference. These are awesome, BluezaBladeNZ! I think I have an idea for a project idea for these in the future...

Re: All-purpose Dragon Ball sale/trade thread.

I've auto re-listed these several times now with no interest so I'll also be open to offers on here. I have two each of GT box sets 1 and 3. The discs are in relatively good condition, any scratches that may be present are minor and I've tested them too. The boxes have some wear but not too bad. I a...

I mean promo scans are just that, promo scans.

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

I feel that a lot of this speculation could be put to rest if AM would be willing to detail what kind of remastering process he'd like to undertake, and how he plans on acquiring the source material to do it. Getting the source material is probably the hardest part, followed closely behind warding o...

Re: Bootleg topic! Real vs fake

The uptick in bootleg blue bricks is definitely weird, especially since people are ordering them from Amazon. I have to imagine people are ordering from third party sellers and not Amazon directly, I just purchased #3, 4, and 5 off Amazon from them directly and they’re certainly official products.

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

If it was crowdfunded, I would happily kick in something but only if it can be guaranteed that the project wouldn't be shut down by Toei or FUNimation so I could see some kind of return on investment, and of course some proof that my contribution would actually be going toward an original, professio...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

That would be an incredibly ambitious project, what masters would you use as the basis for this? Would you be upscaling Dragon Box footage and color correcting that, or do you have access to actual raw film masters from some source?

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

What would be some examples of problems with Funi DB releases that were brought to their attention, that they then actually listened to their audience on and rectified/improved?
