So what...is it about 50% of folks keep their toys mint in the package? That's always the big quandary...to take out of the box and display or leave it in there. But it helps make the decision a little easier if the packaging your toy comes in looks good and features some great artwork. Let's check out those top five.
5. Ollie the Twitterific Bird (Strangekiss)
If you're looking for the perfect display packaging...you're going to need that window front box. Add in some great artwork from David Lanham of the Iconfactory and you've got a great displayable package.
4. Uglydoll Action Figure Series 2 (Uglydolls)
If you remember the old-school Critterbox vinyl Uglydolls, you might remember this packaging. The Uglydoll crew went from a blind box Series 1 to a more display-friendly Series 2.
3. Mars Attacks Martian Ambassador (Hot Toys)
Hot Toys gave their Mars Attacks line that retro look...just like the cult trading card series from 1962. Add in bright colors, stills from the film and a nice window and you have a sweet 1/6th scale box.
2. Letters From LA: Voxer (U1 Toy Arts)
Sleek style and protection are always important. U1 Toy Arts layered the graffiti, wall and base on this Vox piece between separate levels of Styrofoam. Just an innovative way to package a resin piece.
**WINNER** 1. Lunartik in a Cup of Tea (Matt JOnes)
While the blind box looks great, with plenty of colorway illustrations, it's really the inside elements that put this series into the top spot. A teabag shaped pamphlet that features the various colorways? Ingenious!
