All of the DBoxes I bought online arrived perfectly intact with little to no damage on the outer boxes. Although, there was a disc loose in DBox #6 which resulted in the disc having a few light scratches. It shouldn't be a problem.

I know how that feels bro... I know how it feels... The joy of adding a rare item in a reasonable price in your personal wishlist... the joy of saving your money to buy it... the excitement of going to the store to buy it... and the crushing defeat when you find out the thing you wanted and saved your money for went out of stock. :(

I lucked out. My friend gave me an Amazon gift card last night. The first thing I did was purchase volume 5 at the $21.49 price.

I noticed the Dragon Ball season sets went back up in price as well.

Grrr.... Just when I was going to get Boxes 5 and 6 at such a cheap price, they've gone up again.

Damn it all!

Ha! The $58 one is gone already.

Found one for $59 if anyone is interested. Vol.4 is almost as mad as Vol.2 already.

Just got the final two Dragon Boxes for Christmas (I already knew I was getting them, because I ordered them, but still awesome)! All 291 episodes are mine!

The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

I already have all the Dragonboxes but I picked up all the Dragonball blue brick sets just in case they went back up to their original price. $16 per box set is a steal of a deal! :D Now I will have the Dragonboxes and the Dragonball season sets.

Box 4 is practically gone from amazon. One used, "like new" one going for $250 popped up today.

Box 2 is staying the same, with a handful of new ones going from $200-$400, with one ridiculously priced at $999 from "quick and easy market place", who are also selling a new box 4 and box 1 for the same price. Keep dreaming...

One new Box 1 for $99, and a handful of used ones for around $50-$60

These babies are going fast.

Yay, managed to get Dragon Box 4 from eBay for £36.99. That completes my DBZ collection! :D

Another Christmas present from me to me... ;)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Give it a week or two and it will probably reach Vol.2 madness.
I have a Dragon Ball collection of sorts which can be seen here.

For sure. I keep checking around for the DBoxes for my friends who don't have them all. 1, 2 and 4 seem to be the hardest to come by. 3, 5 and 6 seem to be the easiest. 7 is starting to raise up in price everywhere and become harder to find. So if any of you guys who have 1-6 and been holding of on getting 7, I suggest you buy it now.

Edit: Target has (7) DBox #7 available for order at $34.49. That's the cheapest I can find it for you guys. If anyone is interested.

I'm honestly shocked at how the price for Box 4 goes up and down.I got my Box 4 almost 2 weeks ago for 39.99$ and now I've seen it as high as 1000$ what's this world come too.

As soon as #5 and #6 go down to those $20 prices again, I'm getting them!

That's if they do go down again, watch them go out of stock in early January.

Yeah, I'm keeping an eye on them.

They still have a lot of copies of them though...

Went to Frys today and found two copies of Dragon Box #4 for $39.99. I had to buy one since I still need Vol. #5, #6, and #7. Also, Dragon Box #4 is now as rare as the first three. I'm just hoping Amazon can bring back that $20 sale for the Dragon Boxes so that I can buy the final three.

Geez, they're going so fast. By the end of 2012, every single one will probably be gone!
