My most recent Dragonball purchase would be Shen Long Cell strap thing...
(not for me), and the "collector's edition" of the French DB manga release.

I just picked up the old "Fusion Saga" DVD Set off eBay. Now I just need the Majin Buu and Kid Buu sets to complete my fullscreen collection! :twisted:

Even though I already posted some of it in the "show off your Dragon Ball crap thread" here are my most recent purchases:

Complete Song Collection Vol. 3

Daizenshuu 7

Drag on Box singles Vol. 30 and 31 (the only thing that bothered me about these is that the seller threw in empty cases of volumes 32 and 33, I mean seriously, how do you lose these gems!? Can't complain though, the price for these was amazing.
Trans rights, now!

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.

Right now what I'm doing is picking up as many dual-language dvds as there are for the show. I got the first 43 eps of the series on the old Pioneer singles for less than $30, so I went with it because I love me some Scott.

In terms of the Sayiajin-Freezer bricks, right now I am waiting. I have to time out my purchases anyway because my job is only so good for bringing in money, so I am waiting and seeing what happens with the bricks, and if they later release HD/whatever dvds that -are- fullscreen. If they do, woohoo! If they don't, at some point in time I will cave in and just go for what's available, even if as violently familiar with the series as I am it'll drive me crazy when every image is cropped up.

Once in awhile I hear about people collecting the “whole” series in fullscreen. My question is how are people accomplishing this with regards to the end of the Saiya-jin saga/first half of the Freeza saga?

The UUE DVDs were discontinued right around when Nappa kills Piccolo. The FUNi singles don’t pick up again until the fight between Goku and Ginyu. That’s a rather glaringly large gap that can’t otherwise be filled in fullscreen to my knowledge.

Only way I can see doing so is if one taped those episodes off Adult Swim, or if they simply bought the old Saban/Ocean DVDs for those episodes… and those are so edited/censored/hacked up that it’s totally not even worth it.

Even Captain Awesome, who’s about as staunchly anti-widescreen for DBZ as it gets, had to buy at least the first two Orange Brick sets in order to close the gap in his fullscreen singles. So what do people otherwise do? Just opt for the Dragon Box singles? Download 'em?
I have the orange bricks for the uncut and the Saiyan Conflist and Namek Saga Pioneer box sets for nostalgia attacks.

My most recent purchase is Volume 1 and 2 of the DBZ DragonBoxes. Finally, after a month of purchases, I own all the DragonBoxes!
Took me a about a month to decide and finally buy them. I am glad I did too!

I actually have tapes of the fullscreen uncut Namek and Ginyu stuff. Once I get a VHS to DVD converter thing, they will be up for free.
Dragonball and One Piece are two totally different stories, except one author has a fanboy hard-on for another Author.

After reaching into my pocket today I found the receipt for my most recent Dragonball purchase. I will soon have to burn it so that it will not be found (yes throwing it in the trash would be easier but I like fire) so I'd thought I'd put it up here so that I'd have a digital copy and because I just felt like it.

Let's see now...Most recent...I wish I could say the Daizenshuu but I'm so low on cash right now...I think it was a Pre-Order for Orange Brick #6 + Remastered Movies 3-4.
