Robot Love and Obsessive E-bay Packaging

on Sunday, October 30, 2011.

There are few times when E-bay toys exceed expectation.  Then there are even fewer times (none before) that the package is arguably better than the toy.  Here I'll call it a tie.

I purchased a wonderful Ideon robot from Walter, a newer ebay seller, but expected the toy to come in the traditional cardboard box.  No, it came stenciled with art on the box.

Then there was art inside the art.  Then boxes inside boxes.  Then bubbles on luan!  Then rope with knots and corner guards.  Obsessive details!!

Enjoy the pictures of what has been an incredible gift and an awesome packagin job.  Needless to say, I've kept the box :)
