http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dragon-Ball-Z-F ... 4ae8ef3c11 (Japan seller)

I waited on when SSG came out back with BoG, now you can't find it for under £40, so I didn't want to make the same mistake twice lol
I appreciate that mate. I'm not normally one for collecting figures etc but this is really sweet, I've went and bought it.

My ex got me the first US Dragon Box for my birthday, as I had sold my original copy due to need for fast cash.

Best. Birthday present. EVER!

I may or may not have recently bought a product that's a topic of controversy. Blame the cleaned up Japanese audio. It sounds better than any other DBZ series release I've heard.

Seen these at the Dollar Tree and said I might as well buy them! :)

Funny story included here! So I knew when I bought these the guy up front was just going to mention something about the new series announcement. So finely! after the old lady in front me kept reassuring me that my stuff wasn't hers over and over...the guy at the register SURE ENOUGH!! says ''Did you see they announced a new series coming out?'' and I'm like yeah! he's like ''I think it's going to be called Dragonball Hoshi or something like that'' and I just thought in my head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31g0YE61PLQ hahahaha but I corrected him about that and the new series haha So that was my day! :thumbup:
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

As previously mentioned, I've purchased the Goku Resurrection F figure. (And I've now pre-ordered Vegeta),

Got it in the post this morning and I'm very happy with it :)

Battle of Gods - Extended Edition [Blu-ray] (FUNimation)

The UK version is missing the 5.1 Japanese audio and it cost me less so didn't mind it, plus despite it being region locked it's no biggie any more. Blu-ray Players have become cheaper (cheapest way to watch Blu-rays of any region is via a PC/Laptop/etc and connected to the HDTV).

Some recent purchases I made this weekend with pics from the sellers on ebay.
ImageGuy off eBay takes old dictionaries and turns them into art, very detailed drawing and unique way of presenting it. He has a lot of different anime/marvel etc.artwork, purchased for $8.00.

ImageI don't usually buy action figures but this was cheap and I'm not sure if it's a fake but yeah.

Just picked up these three from CD Japan:

Shipping restrictions meant I had to leave Vegeta behind, but I'll pick him up when I grab Broli and Freeza; if he's still in stock, that is.These things are dirt-cheap on CD Japan right now. I couldn't believe it. Especially when you look at the Madman website trying to sell them at $34.99 EACH. :wtf:

These figures look kinda cool as Skylanders/Infinity/Amiibo size-type. Wish they had one from Super Saiyan Cyan Goku but nope, it's just the normal Super Saiyan Goku. :(

It's been a while since I bought some Dragon Ball stuff, so I thought I'd make this one BIG.

Image

All 5 of the Dragon Ball Viz Bigs are MINE (I'll grab the final 5 Z ones next month)

Also this weirdo tagged along

Image

I needed to own Jaco before I read through Dragon Ball, so YAY

It's like I was preparing for Dragon Ball Super in July or something....
Next quest: Start collecting Dragon Ball Super Blu-Rays whenever season sets get released. Also the Super Manga!

Fan of Dragon Ball Z and various other Anime since '98! ^^

I was THINKING about buying the Dragon Ball Manga in Kindle format so that I could have quick reference pictures available in my possession. But not sure if it's worth it. I have the VizBigs and I have the whole Janese manga.They're not dirt cheap either. Does anyone have any suggestions if it's worth it or not?

Worth it, i bought it all on VizManga's ios app, i don't know if you have access to ios apps. However if the kindle is anything like the VizManga experience i would reccemend you go for it. I love my digital manga collection of Dragon Ball.
