Had to get in a small Wal-mart.com order to get my mom's birthday present in, and while I was at it, I discovered that they were still selling these babies.

Since I need to get around to getting the rest of the manga as it is, I figured this was a good place to start since this seems a little bit harder to come across in comparison.

...I'm going to assume the picture wasn't showing up like I wanted it too. Grr. Swapped out with an upload of my own so that it should, hopefully. :P (In any case, it's Dragon Ball: Complete Illustrations!)

I've debating on buying that for a while now. Is that just a artbook or is it more along the lines of a guidebook?

Someone who actually already has the book would be able to answer better, but from what I know and remember...it's mostly an artbook, with a few intereviews and such in there as well. It's one of the daizenshuu originally (the 7th one, I think?), and it's the only one we (and most other countries) ever got. Again, paraphrasing from what I remember reading in other threads though.

The advice i would give is to catch these figures when they first are released. I paid 105 pretty recently (because i missed the chance to buy it when it first was released) but since then the price has already rose, i would see if you could still find a deal like that on ebay. (without long distance shipping killing the deal)

Wow! Those look awesome! I had no idea they existed as well lol
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

This was the first Daizenshuu volume and it contains most, but not all, of Toriyama's special illustrations featured in Weekly Shonen Jump, V-Jump, and other miscellaneous locations. The back has notes about most of the images, and there's an interview with Toriyama about his art, inspirations, favorites, etc.

Unfortunately I haven't received this boxset yet, i bought it today off of Yahoo Auctions japan. The pictures I posted were the pictures that the seller on Yahoo Auctions Japan put up. Once I do receive all my stuff (about 2 to 3 weeks) I will try to scan the images for you!
