It was $56 until a couple days ago. It's still $60 on Right Stuf and they're faster anyway.

It'll probably be pretty cheap on rightstuf when it gets closer to Feb.

Their price for the first one has went down a lot since release.

Amazon did the same thing with the first dbox.

You're guaranteed the lowest price anyway, so no worries.

It'll probably drop even lower than the original price, just like the first one.

Don't know if this was posted but RightStuf updated the second Dragon Boxes' page:
The battle to harness the power of the seven Dragon Balls explodes in vivid detail like never before. The Dragon Box features over 40 uncut episodes, remastered and restored frame by frame, rendering the legendary action in pristine clarity. Each episode is presented in Japanese with the complete opening and closing credits and includes the original episode previews.

Having suffered heavy losses in the battle with the Saiyans, and with Goku still recovering from his injuries, the remaining Z-Fighters must embark on a perilous journey to Planet Namek in search of the Namekian Dragon Balls. Unbeknownst to them, however, a powerful new enemy has set his sights on the same prize: the ruthless tyrant Frieza!

Contains episodes 42-83.

Special Features: 48-page Collector's Booklet, Trailers.

Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.
The episode count is off though. It's actually 43 to 84.

I didn't quote it when I replied because I didn't wanna stretch the page. ^^;


EDIT: I hunted down the page it came from, the "i" is there. :( Looks like this is a case of the forum's word modifier.

Oh well. Now I feel sad instead.

Don't be... since I can't imagine they wouldn't use "Freeza" for the actual Dragon Book and subtitles. :D

Contains episodes 42-83...

Okaaaaaay...


About the Freeza Friza thing, it's probably just someone on RightStuf mistaking the accepted spelling as a misspelling of the Funimation spelling...

Maybe it only goes up to 83 because they also included the Bardock special...!

It's probably just a typo, but I can hope.

Should be 43-84, which is what it says on the actual box anyway.

So that would mean either that's a typo or either the box art is wrong/fake/whatever. It is one of those two. As for it only containing 41 episodes, nothing wrong with that. It's supposed to contain "over 40" and 41 is still "over 40".

Man I can't wait to get the Dragonbox volume 2! I will have to wait awhile because my family is in the process of moving to a new house, which will be in February. Going to get it as soon as we change addresses.

It's a typo. Note that it says episodes 42 to 83. Volume 1 is 1-42. Seeeee?

We're not going to get the same episode twice... I hope lol.
