It's over 9000!!!!
- Been a Dragon Ball fan ever since 1995 (at the time, I was 7 years old).
- I prefer Saffron Henderson's Kid Gohan and Kid Goku over Stephanie Nadolny's.
- I still hope for a redub of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z with FUNimation's current cast.
- I prefer to watch Dragon Ball Z with the Faulconer Score, however I do not mind the original Japanese score.

I don't understand how people didn't buy it when it was widely available. FUNimation did state they were "limited time" only releases.

I find it more realistically amusing that you can trade it in, to Amazon, for $121.50. I might have to go hunting for copies just to trade to Amazon. :P

lol I laughed too when I saw that price. Ironically enough, Vegeta is on the front cover. Anyway, I think a lot of people didn't expect it to expire so quickly. It came to me as quite a shocker that they stopped producing copies soon after the seventh and final release. I guess we'll all know next time that when they say "limited release" we'll take have to it more seriously. Thankfully, I own all the Dragon boxes with 6 & 7 on order.

*slow clap* Well played, good sir.

I hate that meme...but I gotta hand it to him, it was the one time it where it was apropriate (9000,1? Too good lol) :lol:

Seriously though, the 60 bucks I had to fork out for my Box 2 looks like a steal compared to that. Damn.

Because not everybody has money to spend on what they want to all the time. Some people need to spend money on the stuff they need.

I really don't understand this pricing... I mean, this is obviously a play on the "Over 9,000", but I don't think this pricing on a new copy via eBay is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DragonBall-Z-Dr ... 4fbadb4759

Especially as the same seller is offering a used copy for only $77 http://www.ebay.com/itm/DragonBall-Z-Dr ... 4fb8280f68

Also, someone seems to be selling Boxes 1-6 New for only $299 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dragon-Ball-Z-B ... 500wt_1180

So who in their right mind would pay the other seller $1,141.20 for just Box 2, when they could have the first 6 for 1/4th the price?!

btw, I'm a she. (: EDIT: If you were talkin' about me anyway. But yeah, the meme annoys me too but I felt that this was an appropriate time to use it. xD

If something is truly perfect, that's IT! The bottom line becomes there is no room for imagination! No space for intelligence or ability or improvement! Do you understand? To men of science like us, perfection is a dead end, a condition of hopelessness. Always strive to be better than anything that came before you but not perfect! Scientist's agonize over the attempt to achieve perfection! That's the kind of creatures we are!

After almost two years, that's not a valid excuse. More like carelessness at this point.

A funny thing that I noticed is that I posted a listing on ebay for volume 2, and I think the same guy from Amazon with that $9,000 listing is bidding on it. If I knew that Amazon trade in was over $100, I would have traded it in to them instead. :(

Yeah, good luck getting that full gift card amount for a trade-in. I think the "up to" qualifier will certainly come into play for this.

The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128
