Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

As nice as the slipcase is, it’s FYE exclusive, so bet on it to never go down in price. At $160 you’re paying $32 per set, so if you don’t have any yet and want them, it’s not bad I guess considering you can get them individually for $20, but never buy one crushed by a spider wrap like that one. Sli...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

These are apparently out now if anyone cares. Of course my local FYE took it upon themselves to immediately choke the things in a spider wrap, destroying the boxes and ensuring that they’ll sit right alongside the other orange brick box that’s been there for years to come. I don’t know what I hate m...

Well, the poll ended with 65% in favor of 4:3. Let's see what happens now.
It comes out as 16:9 anyway.

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

I find the best way to watch Kai is a mixture of Yamamoto and Kikuchi because the placements of both scores are very repetitive. I watched the later episodes with Yamamoto in Japanese and the novelty of a "more cinematic score" eventually wears off. The Manga UK Blu-Ray seasons are a great option f...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

Am i missing something here, because why would anyone buy this? I was under the impression that the issues with these were well documented. Orange bricks are shit, but the blue bricks while not amazing are a very passable release. Frankly if Z was done like the blue bricks instead ten years back, t...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Vic’s YouTube not-lawyer posted a tweet teasing the affidavit of Stan Dahlin. I haven’t followed this case in awhile but it really looks like it’s over, why is this apparently so important to the Vic side when it seems like they’re losing so badly?

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

It's a bit of a tangent, but I like that the episode guide booklet in the season sets can be found in PDF form on funi's DB websites. Ooo! Do you have a link? My Blue Bricks didn't come with any, just a paper-wasting leaflet telling me how Funimation wasn't going to waste paper on full booklets. I ...

Re: FYE Announces Dragon Ball Z Orange Brick "Collector's" Box Set

My local FYE already has a couple big box sets of the orange bricks, the only difference compared to this one is that one has different art on the box. Another thing to collect dust at FYE, I guess.

Listening now. This takes me back to high school.

Countless hours were spent just browsing Planet Namek and DBZ Uncensored, t...

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...

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...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I still want to know where everybody is getting the idea that Toei is definitely remastering the series other than 'They did the movies and the specials', because that could just mean they wanted to remaster the movies and the specials and leave it at that. I would be really surprised if they care ...
