 PS Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Ultimate Box - Packaging Fetish

NCS Product Update
   A few visitors asked if we could take photos of the packaging that the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Ultimate Box ships in. Here are some quick and dirty snapshots taken this morning. We're only going to be keeping one of these boxes for our private collection due to the high cost of procurement.

   The package weighs a little over 13 pounds with a shipment weight of 16 pounds once packaging is included. Square Enix opted to double box the precious contents but we'll insert their box into a third box to protect it during transit to customers.
