I mean, i don't actually have a Blu-ray player with the exception of my PS3 but it's not really set up/updated to play them at this point plus i primarily use it for gaming anyway. Also i got the DVD mainly so i could rip the movie and have a copy to watch on my computer.

Digital is the future. I myself bought the iTunes version.

For rentals, sure. Not the future if you care about owning the copies you buy.

For me, it's about higher quality and safekeeping. never know when something you buy digitally will get taken away and become unavailable

The "digital version" is just the rights FUNimation's stream of it though. You don't get to download it or anything. Besides, the Blu-ray also comes with the digital copy.

Of course the DVD version as you see above also comes with the digital copy too, though i'm not quite sure at this point if i will actually be using it i may eventually redeem the code later.

I'm fairly certain that as people's connections improve throughout the years, digital streaming and downloading is going to surpass physical purchases. Companies would love to cut out that middle man to maximize profits.
The same thing is slowly happening to music, and video games will follow suit as well. Will there still be physical media? Sure, but it'll mostly be for collective purposes similarly to how Vinyls have made a niche comeback. In South Korea, companies are still able to sell CD's because they bundle them with art cards, photobooks, calendars, etc. so I'd expect "collector's editions" of films to become the norm and sold at a premium while plain old vanilla DVDs and Blurays will most likely go the way of the vanilla CD.

It really is unfortunate because I don't think streaming will ever fully reach Blu-ray quality.

Broly notepad, smartphone ringholder & Gogeta stand. Couple of old WCFs, few VS to catch up on and #21 UDM and a couple of the Wafer Unlimited cards and then the April SSG FES and BoS "Omen":

Image

SSG FES has been 6 yrs in the making, been waiting patiently for an SSG figure in which Nakazawa has no restrictions and he delivered! The figure is amazing, it's sculpted to look good from all angles and has the typical Nakazawa detail everywhere.

BoS however....Banpresto's final swan song was a massive f**k you! They ruined the orignal prototype in more ways than one, biggest change the glitter on the hair is so subtle you can't tell unless you shine light at it and look at it at eye level, the clothe damage is just painted on instead sculpted.... bah. We waited 1.5yrs for an "Omen" figure and Banpresto just f**ked it up....

Just recently picked up the old school Pioneer/FUNi release of Tree of Might with the Ocean Studios cast on a run at my local pawn shop recently. It was definitely a surprise find being a 20+ year old Dragon Ball DVD from the early days.

Got my DBS: Broli Collector’s Edition from Amazon UK today. I originally had the steelbook ordered too but I managed to grab the US steelbook so I saw no purpose in owning two of the same thing. Really nice package! Are all slipcovers in the UK this durable? I really like how it’s a sideloader too. I need to pick up a region free Blu-ray player soon. Please excuse the disorganized collection, I need to pick up more shelf space.

Got the Collector's Edition and Steelbook Edition of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. I just need to grab a copy of the Sainsbury's Exclusive Edition now with the Art Cards and I'll be good, hoping the store in my area has a copy on Blu-Ray.

I've also picked these up in the last few weeks. Found out Dragon Ball Super Vol. 1 had a Loot Crate Exclusive Edition so I went on eBay and grabbed myself a copy, already own the standard edition of the volume but it's Dragon Ball and I'm a collector so I had to have it. Dragon Ball Super Vol. 5 was a recent release, love the artwork on these volumes. And finally, I got the newest volume of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, which is now on Universe Mission. I already own both volumes of Dark Demon Realm Mission. I'd love it if Viz picked these up someday but I doubt it, also I'm really not a fan of the art style, it just doesn't look that nice but the fan-service is great, love that Majin Ozotto appeared. It also came with an Ultra Instinct Goku DB Heroes Card as well.

Pardon the question, but in which site can I post pictures of my DB stuff? Also, is it too difficult?

Posted this already on another topic, but heck:

Amazon.jp delivers internationally if you get stuff from sellers that have their products stored on the Amazon warehouses.
It's a lot cheaper than getting it from a middle-man service and it arrived all completely intact, the box, discs and inserts were perfectly fine.
