Looking for decent sized Dragon Ball figures for a young fan

My young brother is also a fan of the series, and he's asking for Dragon Ball "action figures". As I'm sure most of you are aware, that sort of thing is difficult to find. I can only find tiny figures, ones that would be unsuitable for play, very expensive ones. I've found a couple of these, which I...

Re: Which family would you live with?

I'd love to live at Kame House, personally. Kame Sen'nin is the most fun character in the series, and I have no complaints about Kuririn, Oolong or Lunch either.

Re: Should there have been a couple more arcs in Dragon Ball

Everything just went stupid during the Buu arc. I love Super Saiyan 3, and a lot of things in that arc, but 7-year-old Super Saiyans? I'd drop everything after Cell just because of that. I agree that the Shadow Dragon arc was good. The rest of GT sucked, but the Buu arc leading into the Shadow Drago...

Re: Should there have been a couple more arcs in Dragon Ball

I've just thought back to this while re-reading Dragon Ball volume 10, and I think there should have been another arc between the Uranai Baba and 22nd Tenkaichi arcs. Not just the few ultra-formulaic episodes that we got in the anime, but some bigger adventures of Goku during his travels. I'd really...

As long as it's legit I'll do it, it's just that an email asking for a scan of my card does seem somewhat strange.

Re: Did the series need Saiyans?

Oh, though without Saiyans, there would be no Super Saiyan, and I would lost the single most memorable moment of my childhood. Well, there can still be Super Saiyan. Just... refer to it as something not to do with Saiyans. We've all seen the video of the guy who thinks he's a Super Saiyan... Imagin...

Re: Which DB series got the worst dub?

The dub that covers the artificial human arc onward, yeah. I've heard many people call it the blue water dub before, sorry about that :P

Re: Did the series need Saiyans?

But Goku always wanted to become stronger than everyone else, his dream throughout Dragon Ball was to become Tenkaichi. I understand your point about how his personality and everything special or unusual about him changed to just "he's a Saiyan", but I think his ambitions were always the same. Perso...

Re: Which DB series got the worst dub?

The Blue Water dub of DBZ, as I remember it, was pretty awful. The Funimation dub was much more consistent and much higher quality, also, complete.

Re: Dub mistakes in the original Dragon Ball

Oh, I just didn't recall hearing "power level" any time apart from that one incident, and then every five seconds from when Raditz landed onwards, so it seemed like power level was just a Freeza term that everyone else adopted.

Re: Dub mistakes in the original Dragon Ball

After drinking the ultra divine water, Goku says he can sense Piccolo's "power level" rather than "energy", "ki" or "presence". Not only is he not measuring the ki, but simply detecting it, but the term "power level" is one that comes from the World Trade Organisation, associated with use of scouter...

Who does Mr Satan compare to in terms of strength?

Mr Satan is clearly a really strong guy who could beat the crap out of any of us, and he'd probably be one of the strongest people on Earth in the real world. Was there ever a point in the series where his strength would have been on par with the other characters? Perhaps he could beat Colonel Silve...

Re: Why does FUNi release DBZ on BD/DVD when they'll cancel

I understand peoples' frustration at this, I share it. I dislike that the bricks are the only complete release of the whole series of Dragon Ball and DBZ. As much as I like the Faulconer audio sometimes, I just can't watch the orange bricks, which means I'm stuck with blue bricks for Dragon Ball, DB...

Re: Random Dragon Ball Discoveries

Okay, thanks. It's just that which concerns me. I'm worried about damage to the boxes that's invisible from the angle of the photo, or laser burn on the discs. Also, I'm guessing the extra gifts aren't included since they're not in the picture, but I can't tell from the description.

Re: Should there have been a couple more arcs in Dragon Ball

I like the idea of having a better and longer Garlic Jr saga, because that story did have potential, it was great that it wasn't just "villain appears > do training > kill villain in fight". To avoid continuity errors there could be another Garlic Jr arc showing his first defeat either between the 2...
