Dragon Ball Series Preservation (* unfinished project *) - much info & ongoing discussion

As far as i know, there is already a team of people working on the entirety of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z doing scene by scene colour correction.

And what of Dragon Ball GT? Is someone working on that, too? If they’re doing DB and Z, they might as well do GT to complete the original run.

Phildesfr's Blu-Ray Complete Set

I know this is a small thing to point out, but in regards to the Disney era films, how come there aren’t any logos on the top of the spines? Episodes 1-6 have the “20th Century Fox Home Entertainment” logo when being displayed together, but episodes 7-9, Rogue One, and Solo don’t even have a Disney castle logo on the top of the spines. Maybe, my OCD is kicking in a little bit or something.

I am not entirely sure if anyone on here is able to help me out with this problem, but I’m having a difficult time printing off Phildesfr’s covers of the Prequels and Rogue One in Criterion Blu-Ray cases, so they’ll match my Despecialized Editions of the OT. My printer wouldn’t let me resize them to the dimensions I want. The thing is, I’m able to print covers just fine as they come.

I love this series(all of it Dragon Ball, Z and even GT sorta) but it has consistently gotten pretty shitty home releases. The closest we came to perfection is the Japanese Dragon Boxes for the original series all of the original series as those were made from the original negatives, but unfortunately they are out of sync, had their next episode previews out of order, need to be color and as many fans know, have rather poor Japanese audio. Toei junked the original master tapes after each episode was broadcast as the idea of any of the series getting some sort of home release seemed ridiculous to them. Thankfully the original broadcast audio does exist, albeit on VHS and Beta-max recordings of the episode’s original airing, however many of the fans who own these refuse to release them, and very few have gotten through the cracks.

Here is what I’m planning:
-I have the high quality rips and iso’s of the R2 Dragon Box sets which I will be using for the footage. I will make sure that they are the best encodes they can be to preserve quality(no I WILL NOT be scrubbing the image. The grain is there to stay!)
-For video editing I have Virtualdub, Avidemux and Premiere Pro. I will be using these programs to color correct the footage and put the next episode previews in their proper place before the credits.
-I also have the uncut Funimation audio with the original Kikuchi score and plan to get the uncut dub with the Faulconer score as well.
-Now this is the tricky part: I insist on using the original Japanese broadcast audio but it is rather hard to find, especially for all of the series. I already have the audio for episode 153 of Dragon Ball and episodes 1-17 and 95 of DBZ. I know there was a Japanese release called the “Big Box” in the late 90’s that included the original master audio for 2 episodes later in the series but have been unable to find a copy. If anyone has ANY episodes that I don’t have or knows where I can go/who I can contact to find something PLEASE let me know. I believe that Animax(or some station in Japan)still airs episodes of Dragon Ball GT with it’s original stereo audio(the first few episodes were in mono the rest in stereo)synced to Dragon Box footage and I believe there is a bootleg Mandiran release of the series that uses master sent to TV stations with high quality mono audio. I have been planning to tackle Z first of course, but seeing as materials for GT are easier to find I may do that first. So the final product for each series should be something like this:
-R2 Dragon Box footage
-Japanese Broadcast Audio
-English dub with Kikuchu score
-English dub with American music
-English subtitles

Any interest?

Heck yes. Now more than ever before, especially with the terrible 30th Anniversary set that Funimation is putting out. This is the kind of project I’ve been thinking about in a long time. I wish you all the luck in the world to get this project going. God speed, good sir.

ronwlim's custom bluray cases/box set

I am exploring an ever BETTER box for my despecialized box set. Not the bonus stuff like the mini-posters and mini lobby cards, but the individual bluray cases and the box itself.

After some trial and error, I think Star Wars Despecialized box set 2.0 is almost ready. But before I tackle that, I thought I’d try my hand at another film series…

INDIANA JONES

Here’s the video that inspired me:
https://youtu.be/j3QvlNLE0Iw

Using that video as a guide, I started building my Indy box. Here are the results. Think it came out pretty good… I just need to find some glossy sticker paper so the cover inks look more vibrant. Materials list and download links coming soon. I will not be posting a tutorial on how to build the box; the video above should be enough.

Those covers are so jaw droppingly beautiful. Is there any chance that you can upload hi-resolution scans of the Indy covers to fit Criterion Blu-Ray cases?

Hello HarveyPlissken,

sorry to answer so late, but I eventually took some time to work out and issue a set of 3 variations of the Trilogy blu-ray cover featuring Tom Jung’s posters, here they are :

The editable and printable PDFs have been added to my shared folder: http://mega.nz/#F!E1tVHZ4B!Jbegfsr8CGPvHKBZUX-yaw

Enjoy!

This is really amazing, man. I can’t thank you enough for this work of art that you did. I can’t wait to print these.

UPDATED POST: replaced the pics by corrected versions.

Hi everyone!

Here is the latest version of my blu-ray set, now complete with covers for the Prelogy, The Force Awakens and Rogue One (album here: http://imgur.com/a/xDfET)

Just like last time, I also provide PDFs versions, both printable and editable, and templates for the inserts, slipcovers, disc labels, as well as textless artworks and logos, which you can download from this mega.nz link, along with the .torrent file for my BD isos:

I hope i am not spamming your thread njvc. let me know if i should move this elsewhere.

Here is what i have done with phildesfr’s covers so far:

(Note, i did these for the 50 GB versions, and haven’t included anything about the Documentary disks)

Star Wars:

Empire Strikes Back:

RETURN OF THE JEDI:

Download includes disc covers and other sides of the insert/leaflet at 300 dpi: https://mega.nz/#F!Y0g13C6A!sHwfcwb09H7VSV0prLUgJg

JEDIT: added ROTJ, and minor updates to all inserts

Those look amazing. BTW, is there by any chance you can do a version of those covers, but with reversed front and back poster art? Or at least, PM me a text only template so I could edit them myself.

Sorry, I no longer have the software, but you can get phildesfr’s templates and do it yourself if you have the software.

Alright. How do I get a hold of phildesfr?

I’m very sorry you shut down your MEGA account. I think I’m suffering a bit of buyer’s remorse when I bought one of those Despecialized sets on eBay. The only reason I got them was to see what the quality is like, just to try it out before I move forward with making a set of my very own (eventually getting rid of the eBay set and keeping my set). I never plan on reselling the set, but rather I’m giving it to a friend of mine. I wish there was another way of downloading your version of the original Star Wars trilogy (Despecialized, of course, with the cool menus and special features).

Detolas Custom BluRay Set - (Pic Heavy)

This is without a doubt the best fan made box sets I’ve ever seen. How did you make the magnetic doors to open the box and how did you put magnets in there anyway? So many questions. I’d absolutely love to see a tutorial on how to make the box itself.

P.S. In your honest opinion, would you recommend the three-disc Blu-Ray cases ala The Force Awakens or three-disc Criterion Collection Blu-Ray cases?

Is there any chance you can send me links to both the 50GB versions of the Despecialized Editions and the Documentaries for the Original Trilogy, please? I really want to create a 6-disc box set of the Star Wars Despecialized Editions in time for the franchise’s 40th anniversary.

You’ll need to go to the myspleen invite thread and request an invite. They are available there.

Thank you. I’ll give that a shot.
