I think they're talking about the DBoxZ 2 cover, I don't know what they mean when they say it looks off though, it looks perfect.

You're thinking of the picture of Vegeta on the cover of the FuniBox's Dragon Book.
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

Oh, awesome. I had no idea these were coming out, and I just finished buying all the Dragon Box singles. D:

I wouldn't say Vegeta's face looks off, he looks like he's about to fight someone. He just seems really confident. I really like the box art.
It just looks like a different art style. Not Toriyama-esque.

The box-art for volume 2 looks way better than that of the first set. I would've prefered for Vegeta to be in the Namek-clothing he wore during his fight against Freeza, as it would've made more sense, I think. I'm okay with it, though.

Yeah me too, but I'm guessing FUNimation are trying to make their Dragon Boxes exactly like the Japanese ones.

Here are my DBOX banners. I had to make Vegeta's an extreme close up because Vegeta's arm would have been cut off...

Hmm, has it been confirmed that Dragon Box Freeza will be the cover image for FUNiBox 3? I mean, I've assumed it will ever since Vegeta was touted for the second cover, but has there been an official announcement?

As for the image of Vegeta... eh, I like it, but I would have preferred it to have been a more... timely picture of him. Then again, hard to complain about that since Goku in Volume 1, both in the animation style and gi, didn't match what he looked like at that point in the series. Can't blame the original Dragon Box for that too much either since it went through half the series. Eh. Small nitpick. Doesn't bother me too much. The picture of Vegeta is growing on me.

I'm just glad it was Goku on Volume 1 and Vegeta on Volume 2, not the other way around like it was on the big orange bricks. Granted, that was the least of my complaints with those (although at least the image of Vegeta was accurate to the time period), but it always annoys me when companies pander their products in line with the most popular character over the actual main character (Fonzie over Richie, Kelso over Eric, etc.).

On the thought of Android Saga Vegeta being on the cover for the Namek Saga episodes:

It's Funimation. Something has to make no sense.
Can't you see? He's the man. Let me hear you applaud. He's more than a man! He's a shiny golden god!

There has been no official confirmation. It's just assumed that Freeza is going to be on Dragon Box Three because it's that last Box that he'd make sense on in terms of episode content.

What about Namek arc Goku on the box containing the Saiyan arc? :P

Guys, they just lowered the Price to $53 instead of $79! I am so glad I did not waste $79 on pre-ordering the DVD set yet.

Amazon.ca just reduced the set to $48.99 from $62.99 after having briefly raised it to $65.99. Thankfully Amazon's pre-order guarantee gives me the lowest price.

Dragon Box 1 has also been reduced a few dollars to $59.99

I just noticed AxelMusic have added the Dragon Box Z Volume 2 to their site. I know a few people on the forum pre-ordered from the site, so if anyone is interested here's a link:

Speculation Time:

Vol. 1 of the Dragon Box got the One-Star Ball on the spine.

What will they do for the second?
  • 1- Will leave the ball as it is?
    2- Will replace it with the Two-Star Ball and will do the same with each corresponding volume?
    3- Will place the Two-Star Ball above or below the One-Star Ball till we get all the seven balls in the seventh and final volume?

There's clearly a Two Star ball on the spine.
