What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Post by Rocketman » Fri Aug 22, 2008 4:10 pm

Just what it says in the title.

I happened across a Jakks Pacific base Vegetto figure in a drugstore yesterday and decided to pick it up.

I just bought every Dragon Ball tankobon (Viz 1-16) brand new off ebay (Viz Bat Logo) for 70 bucks. Not a bad deal I think. I already own all the Viz Z tankobon.

Three early cell-era singles less than a week ago. I'm almost done collecting the whole series through singles.

Dragonball Z Season Four was my last purchase. I had to ride my bike 11 miles so that I could buy it from Walmart alone and with cash so as to not leak awareness to my beloved purchase!

Dude, If you aren't hardcore, I don't what is.


As for my most recent purchase, that'd be DB VizBig Vol.1.

I'm in the generation of fans that started with Toonami, so I totally empathize with the feeling of having "missed the party", experiencing disappointment, and wanting to experience it myself. But I can't, that's how life is. Time is a bitch. The party is over. Kageyama, Kikuchi, and Maeda are off the sauce now; Yanami almost OD'd; Yamamoto got arrested; Toriyama's not going to light trash cans on fire and hang from the chandelier anymore. We can't get the band back together, and even if we could, everyone's either old, in poor health, or calmed way the fuck down. Best we're going to get, and are getting, is a party that's almost entirely devoid of the magic that made the original one so awesome that we even want more.

The first Daizenshuu released in the USA. It is so f'ing sexy and well worth the money.

I guess the Viz release of the first daizenshuu is the most recent thing I've purchased. Prior to that would probably be the "Super Survivor" CD single and/or these two little key-chains (Tullece & SSJ Vegetto) hanging from my mic's shock-mount.

Next will be the Sparking! METEOR / Burst Limit soundtrack and the reprint of the Dragon Live '98 CD...

I nabbed another copy of Budokai 1 (PAL version with the JP voicecast) since a friend never returned my original copy.

Before that I spent four dollars on a Tenshinhan and Gohan figurine that come out of those little capsule vending machines, and since I just got myself a DS, I picked up Harukanaru Densetsu and Supersonic warriors 2.

I'll be going to a convention tomorrow, looking to pick up some DVDs, the Viz Daizenshuu and some Viz Bigs.

Since I only preordered the Movie 3 & 4 Double Feature, but haven't recieved it yet, that doesn't quite count.

My most recent DB buy is "The Complete Illustrations" artbook from Viz. The art is absolutely gorgeous, and I really hope Viz releases future versions of the Daizenshuu, especially the book where it has artwork from the anime.

Next, I plan on getting the Burst Limit/Sparking! METEOR OST, Season 6, and the "VizBig" version Vol. 3 (mainly becuase I want the color chapters, what few of them we get.)

Dragon Ball Z Season 1 Set back in 2006 was the last thing I purchased a DBZ item. I know I've been lame this past 2 years. I don't really play video games that much so that's why I don't purchase any games or video games soundtracks. I'm probably getting the DBGT season set 1 in November though.

I purchased DBZ Viz Big Vol. 2 and Legendary Super Warriors (Gameboy Color) for $2.99 at GameStop's site.

I'm debating if I should pick up Harukanaru Goku Densentsu when I go out today.
