Seriously, I'd pay $5 just to say I have a scouter! It'd look amazing on my shelf. Laughing

Those are actual props from the LA movie, btw. =P (That statement was a joke, for those of you who may take such things seriously)


I had a wrist band set like that FOREVER ago. Got them from a Big Lots store, if you made sudden movements it was like "huh, hyah, eh" grunting/punching sounds. Put 'em together and it shouted "kamehameha". It was AWESOME.

I was, like, 10.

Unless you can break the scouter by crushing it with your bare hands, the joke wouldn't be complete. Sad

Wow I was going to say something about 9000, but many people have beat me to it already.

I'll still do it anyway

Hey Vegeta, what does the scouter say about his power level?

IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!

No kidding. You guys aren't any fun!

I want to buy a Vegeta wig, personally, though. The joke would be better that way.

It's over 9000! Katejo-kun's Youtube video of that has over 2.8 million hits. A very popular anime that made a very internet meme. Nice to know how one phrase could potentially resurrect a little popularity of what I consider the greatest anime of all time.

To be honest, I'd pay quite a bit for one of those scouters. The Dragonball is cool, and the wristbands are nice... but the scouter is the only one I REALLY want.
Sigh.
Hopefully merchandise like this will appear in the states when the movie comes out! Very Happy
