The Bizarre World of Bootlegs: Dragon Ball Z VCDs

Here are a couple images of some bootleg Dragon Ball Z VCDs. These are of the 6th and 13th movies, titled here as Attack! 1,000,000 Power Warriors and Thunder Dragon Fist. Movie #13 has decent subs, but whoever subtitled #6 took some liberties, as the subs have Vegeta repeatedly cursing like a sailor.

While the picture quality is what one would expect from the limited VCD format, I love that the cover artwork is taken directly from the movie posters. Likewise, on the reverse side, there's some nice screenshots. I remember when Funimation finally released the 6th DBZ movie, retitled The Return of Cooler, it had some particularly hideous DVD cover art.

On a side note, I still have to take photos of the notorious "Speedy Video" Malaysian DBZ VCDs I have buried somewhere. These are the ones with the inexplicably weird English dub. But why wait? Thanks to the magic of the Internet, someone on Youtube has posted clips. Dare to hear the dub firsthand...
