You have to be patient and a bit lucky and also potentially some conversational skills but it is possible to get the Dragon Boxes on ebay relatively cheap. I got very lucky and was able to get the whole lot in great condition for $500.

*looks over to my extra sealed copy of DBox 7*

Hm... $700 is pretty tempting. eBay goes to around $300. I might just sell mine.

I mean, you're pretty open about looking at cartoon porn. Why would you do that? It's fiction. The proportions of these women are not possible to reach in reality.

With regards to the Dragon Boxes, I managed to get in touch with a guy who was willing to sell me DBox1 for £55. I got Box 3 for about £35, 5 for £29 and 6 for £50.

Also Box 7 is on eBay for £100. I've been stalling on it because of the price, but I will undoubtedly get it as he supposedly has a fair number in stock. I know I'll never have the complete set but I will settle for 5 of 7.

Nice! Was able to grab my collection on ebay as well. Took me about 3 months I'm very picky when it comes to the quality, I buy brand new or like new only. I spent about $100 more then you did but it was well worth it. I'll never let go

Just ordered Funimation's Collectors edition of the new movie :)
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

Whoa, I am buying the Vizbigs for two years already. 3 left to go.
I have bought first 6 of them almost at one time and later, they went like 2 times the price (I presume that they are out of print).
I've continued for the sake of completion, beucase I have all the JP tankobons, but funnily, I can't read those.
So I was buying the Viz's releases (red DB and white Z), but stopped with halfway trough the DB as I've noticed that one Vizbig costs me the same as one english tankobon.
Well, now it costs me more than two, but it's actually 3 tankobons in one, so it's a slightly win situation! 8)

Just got Dragon Box 5 from Amazon.ca for less than $60, chuffed :D, but still waiting for updates on Box 3 (found it at a similar price) and when it will be delivered. I have to say presentation wise this is a top notch product with the big sturdy case, hardcover books, spine art, etc. Still having boxes 3 and 5 is better than having no boxes at all. Love the cover art too of course 8) .

I really hope to get the other boxes some time in the future if only I could find them cheap enough, and of course with college as is I can't be spending all my money expanding my Dragon Ball collection, at least not for now.

From Amazon. I had all of the Bruce Faulconer CDs in my cart until I went through Spotify and noticed that Bruce Faulconer had made his way onto there (all of the Z musci)! So I decided to save a bunch of money. I also had the original CD from the Pioneer/Ocean days, but decided that it might not be worth it. Doesn't even have the full version of "Rock the Dragon" (but Dragon Ball Budokai does).
