I posted my collection in this thread sometime in the year 2006...needless to say, it's expanded a bit since then :lol: Here we go!

DVDs:
Image

CDs:
Image

Obligatory Daizenshuu shot:
Image

Vegeta poster signed by Ryou Horikawa:
Image

Battle of Gods promo poster:
Image

Magnets (also, Boo is holding onto my Battle of Gods tickets :D ):
Image

The plushie chair is out of control:
Image

Battle of Gods mouse pad with raised wrist support (kinda wish they went with the oppai style, except since this is Dragon Ball it would be a man's muscly pecs rather than a woman's boobs :wink: ):
Image

That special Gokuu picture that came with the Battle of Gods special edition release:
Image

And now for my overpacked shelves. Starting with a faraway shot, then some closeups of the relevant Dragon Ball stuff:
Image

Dragon Ball tankoubon 1-42, Journey to the West styled keychains, Trunks figures, Gokuu figures:
Image

Vegeta figures (being my favorite character, his figures easily fill 2 shelves!):
Image

Additional character figures:
Image

Even more figures, some sound drop keychains, those ugly ass Burger King toys, and a few more Dragon Ball guidebooks hiding out on the bottom shelf (Landmark, Forever, Tenkaichi Densetsu, Son Gokuu Densetsu, and GT Perfect Files)
Image

Battle of Gods bottles from KFC (thanks to a friend who was living in Japan at the time and picked them up for me!):
Image

A cool figure set that builds up into a whole diorama:
Image

Apparently I have some of these single issue comics lying around:
Image

Assorted random additional items (I have 3 scouters? How did I end up with that many? :lol: )
Image

Did someone say...doujinshi?
Image

Did someone say...even more doujinshi?
Image

Did someone say...holy shit, I have no memory of owning this many doujinshi?!
Image

In my defense...they're not all porn. Though I did have to turn a few books over and show the back cover to keep the pics from being too NSFW :lol:

Well, that's the bulk of my collection! I know there are even more random items lying around, but I just took pics of whatever things were easiest to find. I don't even want to torture myself by trying to estimate how much I've spent on merchandise for this series over the years...

sailorspazz You've got an amazing collection buddy. :thumbup: I love the Donkey Kong and Trigun figures as well! :D
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

Okay, so I'm pretty sure I've never actually posted any of my junk here, partially because I was holding off until I could get the rest of my figures/toys/etc. out of storage, and put them somewhere on display in my room. That took quite a while due to where they were, but I was finally able to get them back again, and as such, I decided to do an all out assault of pictures to put up. Now, I don't claim to be any sort of photographer, so take the pictures as you will, please. ^_^; I'll also be putting them into spoiler tags because there's quite a few of them, and because they're going to be quite large (this camera takes pictures at an insane size as it is, and even scaling them down after the fact...). Expect a rather large post too, unfortunately.

First up, is the main part of my collection, which is of course the show itself. And yes, I know...I severely need to re-organize my shelf, due to how much both of them are bending a bit, not to mention the poor state of the manga below. ^_^;
There are two more DVDs that aren't currently pictured above.
Moving on from the anime, there's what little of the manga I have. I'm hoping to finally start collecting more of it in the near future, because this is just pitiful.
Next up, the video games! Nothing else to really say about most of those, so I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves this time.
There's a couple of posters on my wall too.
Next up - TOYS. Toys, toys, toys, oh dear god when did I end up with so many toys.
Next up are some miscellaneous books I've got that I don't keep with my manga at the moment.
Now we delve even further into stuff that has no place to go but into storage in the closet, and the next set of pictures, of which there are too many, are a bit...odd, I'll admit. Okay...the long and short of it is that when I was a much younger fan, I would often cut out Dragon Ball related advertisements and...well, use them for cheap posters to go on my wall. Because of that, I still have a fairly decent sized collection of old game and DVD ads. For whatever reason, I can't bring myself to just chuck them either.
And one final set of pictures (for now), the old VHS collection. For these, there are a few that I intentionally didn't take pictures of, because they weren't official release VHS tapes; they were tapes I used to tape the franchise off of TV. I also could have swore I had at least one Freeza Saga tape and another Androids one, and I know I also used to have a DVD single for the very end of Z...but I can't remember what became of those. At any rate, here's the old tape collection that makes me remember exactly why I was so happy when an affordable and shelf-space-conscious DVD box set line was announced.
...Pheeeewwwww...that about wraps it up. There's one last set of things that I know I own, but 1) I think this is a god-awful large enough post already, 2) I'm exhausted from putting this together all day, and 3) I really need to re-organize them first before I can really show them off. So hopefully you got...something...somehow...out of this. I know I felt pretty nostalgic looking over the VHS tapes at least.

Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go collapse in a corner from doing way too much moving stuff around/typing up ONE post for today.

A friend was messing with my magnets and decided to rearrange them this way. I considered repositioning them before taking the picture, but decided to just leave them as they were and see if anyone noticed :lol:

And Gyt Kaliba, don't feel weird about saving ads/packaging! I remember saving a TMNT cereal box for many years when I was little; I would, for no apparent reason, repeatedly read everything written on that box to the point where I had it all memorized!

...OK, that definitely sounds weird :lol: But just know you're not the only one who has an attachment to such things. I still keep some random boxes from merchandise I own. And I think your ad pages are cool, they're a piece of history that might otherwise be lost! :thumbup:
