I wonder how they will release the next collectors set. As a massive 79 episode set containing sets 5 - 10 or Collection 2 with 52 episodes with a small 27 episode Part 3.
Do you mean the Madman sets? 'Collection 2' comes out in October, and only bundles parts 5-8.

Alright, everyone - I've updated my initial post to simply be a guide of the release schedule of the existing and upcoming Part Sets as well as a section for possible Season Sets. Originally, I attempted to make this a guessing game thread for the cover arts/release dates as well as a release schedule guide, but seeing what this thread became (and remembering I had even changed the title to reflect the change) - I decided to keep things simple.

Funny enough, I sold away my Super Part Sets because I'm not sure if I want to collect the individual parts, but may be inclined to buy the Season Sets. Anyone have any guess on when that inevitable release is coming? Knowing Funimation, they're going to milk Super for all it's worth anyway so Season/Collection sets of about 26 episodes are pretty much guaranteed. Anyway, here's the updated guide for convenience:

Dragon Ball Super FUNimation Home Release Guide:

Part Sets:

Dragon Ball Super: Part One - Ep. 1-13 RELEASED July 25, 2017
Dragon Ball Super: Part Two - Ep. 14-26 RELEASED October 3, 2017
Dragon Ball Super: Part Three - Ep. 27-39 RELEASED February 20, 2018
Dragon Ball Super: Part Four - Ep. 40-52 RELEASED June 19, 2018
Dragon Ball Super: Part Five - Ep. 53-65 RELEASED October 2, 2018
Dragon Ball Super: Part Six - Ep. 66- 78 RELEASED January 8, 2019
Dragon Ball Super: Part Seven - Ep. 79-91 RELEASED April 2, 2019
Dragon Ball Super: Part Eight - Ep. 92-104 RELEASED July 2, 2019
Dragon Ball Super: Part Nine - Ep. 105-117 RELEASING October 8, 2019

I swear if I collect all 10 of these parts only for FUNi to announce "season sets", I will...uh...be less than pleased.

... This is undoubtedly going to happen, though, and shouldn't be any kind of surprise! It probably won't be announced the instant box 10 comes out, or even a couple months down the line, but it's sure to happen.

The benefit you get of buying the early sets is having them and being able to enjoy them right away. The benefit people who buy the "season" sets get is a more cost-effective bundle, though they have to wait significantly longer to do so. This is a pretty consistent model across all sorts of merchandise releases (and, again, shouldn't be much of a surprise).

So are the debut of UI Goku episodes on the home release the extended versions or the short episode versions? If they are the short versions why is that?

It's the short versions. My guess is FUNi never dubbed the extended version, perhaps they didn't receive the proper materials to do so.

Well that is disappointing. That is footage lost and I'm very surprised by Toei. At least release it as a separate special

This is probably a dumb question but... Are you Sean Schemmel? He once made an account specifically to exchange some choice words with PenguinTruth, and I remember his username being very similar to yours :P .

Lol I would like his money from voice acting. Alas I ain't the man in question. Just a nerd concerned about extended footage.

I'm, honestly, surprised "seasons" or collections didn't start coming out after, like, part 5 or 6. Considering how they do One Piece's collections, this is surprising to me. It kinda makes sense that they'd wait almost 3 years, since there are gonna be 5 seasons since the next set's the last for Super 1.0, depending on if they bring back or not as Super next, since they literally have only 1 to go & there's 10 part sets in all.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
Vic Mignogna: Good actor & singer, but a MAJOR douchebag & idiot.

The epic tale of how Sean Schemmel blocked me on Twitter:
I tagged him in a thread explaining how his performance wasn't rerecorded when FUNi were redoing parts of the early Z dub for the Orange Bricks.
He thought I was misrepresenting his work by saying he wasn't in something he was in.
I explained how that wasn't the situation & did a bit of a sarcastic kinda thing involving the rerecordings FUNi did for the Z dub to show how stupid that was.
He said they didn't record him & not use his recordings.
Blocked & he deleted his response tweets to me.
???
Profit...?

Um...Listen to Waterparks.
That is all.

Anime voice acting doesn't pay that well, but yeah that extra footage would have been great to have on the home release.

I’ve always assumed One Piece gets them mid-run because it’s Obscenely long with no end in sight
And Dragon Ball Kai only got them while the series was ongoing because they very abruptly had to pull parts 1-4 from circulation

Otherwise they tend to wait until the series/season is over first

I mean, Fairy Tail has them & the only times that show was off the air is when they gave the manga a chance to get decently far ahead to avoid Naruto-type filler episodes. One Piece started getting them around 3 years after they started releasing the volumes, so, yeah, there's probably something to its length. That was also during the first gap where they stopped dubbing episodes until they picked the show back up at episode 207 & started releasing it again. Now they release the Collections after a year or year & a half after the volumes, which is usually in-between when the volumes that make up the Collections were released a year after. I think by the time FUNi started dubbing Super, especially due to the price of licensing the show & the time gap from the Japanese airing, they see no reason to rerelease the episodes in Collections yet, since they'd probably lose money on them, but the show's been over in Japan for over a year now, so now's the perfect time to start rereleasing them in cheaper sets. Even if the show were suddenly announced to be continuing in the near future, they'd still have no reasons. Next year is gonna be the year to start buying Super, I feel it.
I really wish Viz would start doing these more too, outside of rereleases on Blu-Ray (also be more consistent on doing them. The 5th Bleach BR set took almost 2 YEARS to get announced for release for no reason). Other shows could use it, like Naruto Shippuden. I refuse to buy the DVD volumes because there's too many & they cost too much.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Oh god yeah I wish Viz had a turnaround half as fast as Funi lmao

Hunter x Hunter has been a damn exercise in patience

Apparently I wasn’t the only one who felt that way because 26 episodes in they actually did switch over to a 2-in-1+reduced price model, but they still come out slow as hell

Well, they had Hunter x Hunter initially released in 13-episode releases, but quickly switched to 22-24 episodes per thing, which is odd, but I'm glad they did it. Makes me just wanna buy the sets when they come out more.

There's always the Manga UK Blu-Rays, which place the 'Dragon Ball Super' logo further down the cover than Funimation. Hoping they will keep this cover too.
