Base Goku as in, the normal Son Goku character isn't free on FighterZ but rather a paid DLC character? Jeez, the game is a masterpiece in its own right but the way the DLC has been handled has been pretty terrible.
It's pretty much how fighting games are nowadays isn't it? I'm actually sorta OK with it since there's 2 other versions of Goku already. Well, 3 if you count Goku Black. The game has more than enough content and a pretty diverse roster even without the DLC. I really like "base" Goku with his Kaiokens and Genki Damas and what not...but he has some recycled animations with the other versions, which is probably expected but a bit of a rip at 5 bucks for the character.

I should have just shelled out for the Season pass so I could get all the DLC but in fighting games I tend to find a character or two (in this case, 3) that work for me and just stick to them. It's not the only DLC I bought though. I paid FIFTEEN DOLLARS for the damned Japanese OST DLC. There's something cool about fighting to Solid State Scouter...but you're paying more than a dollar a piece for shortened versions of the songs. Plus they use a lame newer version of Cha La...

Had to play some catch-up with the recent releases of the sh figuarts dragon ball line. Got Majin Buu, and Majin Vegeta, over the past month. Then with last weekend's Fan Expo, I bought Kamesennin and the three exclusives being Vegetto, Cell and Broly. Didn't bother with that white effect part. Spent $400 at Fan Expo just for Dragon Ball. Oh, and I'm picking up Goku 2.0 tomorrow since I was busy at work all weekend.

Also got all the freebies at the Dragon Ball Tour. All except the tote bag which was gone instantly.
The world is your's.

FighterZ these days has dropped its price from what it once was. Unless you mean on the Switch which is yet to be released.

Those little Gashapons in the Dragon Ball capsules are fun. I got Super Saiyan God Goku and Goku Black. Can't wait to get a few more. Since I don't have money to invest in real figures those are fun and cheap to try.

I decided to start collecting the 4:3 movies. I saw these 2 at a local store for cheap and decided I should go ahead and get them all over time. I'm just trying to remember if the DB movies are available in 4:3 at all.

Also, can anyone confirm if the Lord Slug disc has a weird feel to it? The image on mine looks kind of blurry and holographic and feels rough. I'm just concerned I got a fake disc. Any help would be appreciated. I'd post a pic of the disc but it doesn't really do it justice.

I assume your Lord Slug DVD is the Uncut version?
I just examined mine, I did not feel any "roughness" on the disc.
Mind taking a picture of the disc for comparison sake?

The "holographic" and "blurry" descriptions match, but the "rough" part maybe was the standard at the time? I felt my "Cooler's Revenge" disc just for comparison and my "Lord Slug" felt similar.
Do you have the Cooler movies or any of the FUNimation DVDs from the same era?

Just Super Android 13, which has a regular smooth DVD. For what it's worth, I checked each disc's file size. Lord Slug is a little above 4 GB, while Super Android 13 is 2.3 GB.

And, maybe rough is the wrong word. It just doesn't feel smooth like most DVDs do, even modern day DVDs and blu rays.

Ah, ok that's what I thought. I own the DB movie collection but I haven't been around it lately to check.
