Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Id also like to mention it's not just FUNi. The limited Batman TAS sets had the same issue with cardboard sleeves and fans hated it so for beyond they did stack disc digibook (of which peoples discs came loose and even mine came with a damaged disc). But a refund or replacement discs should be issu...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I would suggest not trash talking and insulting Funimation if you want to be taken seriously by them. The people on their customer support line had nothing to do with anything that went into this set and having to read through emails that treat them as incompetent is only going to make their jobs m...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I’ve tweeted at them, commented on Facebook, and emailed. If they ignore me for a week, then on Friday I’m starting the chargeback process. I’m not tolerating this. Goodwill wasted, FUNi can rot. Cardboard sleeves. What a joke! Here’s some free advice FUNi since you’re too stupid to put together a q...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I completely understand the frustration the packaging while it looks really nice is unacceptable. I also expect scratches on my set but am hopeful it wont effect video playback. I don’t need to test it, I know it’s not going to work because it catches my fingernail. I don’t know what the hell they ...

I don’t need to test it, I know it’s not going to work because it catches my fingernail. I don’t know what the hell they were thinking putting them in cardboard sleeves. Test it anyways..for science. Hopefully its not a widespread issue. I’ve owned a few sleeve type packaging releases for other thi...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I take back every bit of goodwill I ever said about this set. Multiple discs are scratched because of course they are, they’re in cardboard sleeves! I was casing them up and checked each one, and after awhile I just gave up because every other disc was scratched and this one shown here is deep , as ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

So the 37 disc set that we paid $350 for and is limited to 6,000 copies comes in cardboard sleeves? Yeah no. What were they thinking there? I find that even more unacceptable than how the remaster looks. You are inevitably going to have a situation where somebody gets a scratched disc or three and ...

Re: Looking to buy all the Japanese Dragon Boxes

In the end I believe Robo is right on this. When I made the decision to buy second hand Dragon Boxes, Dragon Ball saga sets, and GT individual volumes, I fully knew it was because I wanted to finally say I own the show on disc, let’s be honest it wasn’t for some crusade to support the creators becau...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

That first Piccolo shot looks like it’s from Episode 4 which is the one I checked out quickly before having to get back to work. In my not-at-all-expert analysis, the Level set beats it out but the 30th set doesn’t look all that bad. I’ve discovered I’m probably easier to please though then a lot of...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Okay so here are my first impressions, I got mine too. I don’t have access to a proper computer with a disc player so sadly I can’t do screenshots. The video quality seems okay to me. There’s definitely film grain. I don’t have the Level sets to compare the two. It doesn’t really appear all that was...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Mark my words, Toei is not remastering the series. It’s over. The time for that has long since passed. It sucks and I hate it, but it’s not happening. Maybe for another big anniversary, but I wouldn’t expect it anytime soon. The set that I ordered has shipped, by the way. I hope there will be some k...

Re: Did I do something stupid?

I mean if you really want to copy every single one yourself, Box 3 last I checked was one of the easier ones to find, I think. Then you can sell that one too? That's a good suggestion, but seems to involve too much hassle. I was barely able to sell the box I had . What bothers me about this is the ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah, just calculated the cost of the Z singles and I'd have to pay a ridiculous amount of money to own it all in my desired collectible formats. So, Season Set Blu-rays it is. Many of the fans on this forum were old enough and lucky to get the DBoxes when they were cheap enough back in 09. I wasn'...

A bold strategy. Let's see if it pays off.
Oh that’s awesome, honestly do they not understand how stupid they look when they do something like this? Apparently not.

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

‘SSJ’ is a holdout term from the 90s and early 2000s that is just really hard to shake now, I for one find ‘SS’ or ‘SS2’, etc., to just be...weird? Yeah, I guess you can say weird. It’s just not what I’m used to reading or using.

Re: If Manga UK Were To Release 'Rock the Dragon'

While a release of the set is unlikely, if the UK did come out with it in a standard packaged release, I’d actually probably import it. Reason why is because cardboard sleeve packaging is the worst thing ever especially for fragile DVDs, and I actually ended up buying a few sets, taking the best of ...
