I don't think we'll ever see Funi release an entire box set like that. They'll probably do double features again.

Why on earth would they do that? That makes no business sense whatsoever. I believe they will in fact, create a Dragon Box for the movies, only on a cheaper scale without bonus features, just like the NA DBoxes. If its really for "hardcore" fans, its going to mimic the JP as much as possible, even FUNi gets why that would be important to do so.

FUNimation is some cheap, moneygrubbing company. They actually listen to their fans; they released the Dragon Boxes. They've could've just stuck with the Season Sets (which were selling well at the time).

I dont know if this makes sense but the first japanese Dragon Box was worth ¥100,000 and it was Approximately 3,700 minutes and the Dragon Box for the movies was worth ¥52,500 and it was 898 minutes. So rounding up the numbers and dividing them (¥100,000/¥50,000= 2 and 4,000/1000= 4) would make it seem like the movies are worth twice that of what the first half of the series is worth. So insted of releasing them in one Dragon Box, which is possible since its around 1000 minutes like the other NA Dragon Boxes, will they release two Dragon Boxes both around 500 minutes (less if they do not include the four DB movies) and both around the same price of the other NA Dragon Boxes?

What do you think of my hypothesis?
Bald that way
