DB: Definitely. GT: Probably. The movies: Maybe, but definitely if DB movie 1 came with it. Aside from that, I already own all the movie singles, and while the transfer might not be the best, they are complete (title cards, even credits, which at that time, nothing but GT had, so that was amazing!), so I do not see much point in repurchasing those.

For Dragon Ball, Definitely! For the Movies, Sure! For GT, yes for collection purposes.
It feels very complete to collect all of the Dragon Boxes.

Seeing as I only bought the DBZ Dragon Boxes because the Season Sets were so flawed video-wise...

DB? No. Season Sets look/sound fine. GT? No. Season Sets look/sound fine. The movies? Definitely. The Japanese audio for the singles and Double Features are quite muffled.

Definitely. Although I don't mind owning the Blue Bricks, Green Bricks, and the majority of the singles, I would definitely get the Dragon Boxes of DB, GT, and the movies if FUNimation ever released those.

For DB... eh, probably not. I prefer that chunk of the story in manga form, which I already have in its entirety.

But for the movies (for both DB and Z) and GT? Hellz yeah, I'd snatch up some Dragon Boxes for them. I'm pretty sure it's because those parts of the series are ONLY in animated form, thus the desire is there to have them in the best format possible.

Dragon Ball: Absolutely positively YES!! :D

Dragon Ball GT: Sure. That way I can get rid of my GT singles and free up a lot of shelf space.

Movies: Yeah. Much better audio quality.

I'll buy them a second time.
It'll save me the time on customizing my original Japanese discs, that's for sure.

Yes, I would buy the movie set, Dragon Ball set and Dragon Ball GT set. I would hope the movies come with the original Dragon Ball movies though too.

I am really hoping for a Dragon Ball Dragon Box though even though I prefer the manga for the first part of Dragon Ball.

Probably, however I doubt we'll get them.. We'll more or less get a blu-ray release based on the level releases.

Dragon Ball? I would absolutely scoop that up.

GT? ... Perhaps, I wouldn't mind having the episode previews again. The singles went to my cousins after I picked up the green bricks. (A dub without Menza is simply worth more than 30 second previews to me!)

Movies? Maybe the original DB ones. I'm not sure I'd care enough for the Z ones though. The double features seem good enough for me.

If they had the (Funi) dub with JP BGM included then yes defiantly. But I would still probably get them if it was just the Japanese version also including the PTETS OVA would be all the more reason.
If you have to write a small thesis every time you respond to a post you're not an intellectual, you're just bad at making your point.

Dragon Ball, and the Dragon Ball Movies, ABSOLUTELY. GT, not really.

I wouldn't buy GT. the Green Bricks are fine and I don't see myself revisiting GT much in the future. But DB? Oh hell yes!

Since I'm in no rush to buy up the rest of the series (having already waited 15 years to own Z) I have no desire to buy the blue and green bricks so long as there's the slightest chance the Dragon Boxes will come here. So, yeah. Not only will I buy them, I'm willing to play the waiting game and not buy the current releases during that wait.

Yep.

I would buy them all. DragonBall/Z/GT and all the movies and specials.

That's the way to good to be true Dragon Box release. We'll be lucky to get just the Z movies.

Same here. I just bought the last of the Z FUNi Dragon Boxes, and I'm holding off on the blue and green bricks. I've been occasionally ordering the blue brick discs through Netflix. That way, it's a no-lose situation. I'm not risking double-dipping, and I can still watch the original series at my own pace.
If we ever do get the Dragon Boxes, I'll happily buy up DB, GT, and the movies.
I can see their parachutes.

Absolutely. I'd buy all of them. If they released a set containing all the special features from the Boxes, I'd buy that, too. I already have The Movies and DragonBall in Japanese DragonBox format, but subtitles are always nice and I actually like the smaller Box size that Funimation used for Z.

Plus, if the pricing stays consistent to the Z Boxes, getting GT and Movies would probably be rather cheap. I'd imagine GT would be in two sets, meaning it would be easy to get them for around $70. I think I only have a few of the old GT singles, so I wouldn't mind shelling that out for good quality and (hopefully) good packaging.
