Thanks Scott! I got mine from Tower Hobbies. I order quite a bit from them and use the coupon codes to get free shipping or $ off. I live about 5 hours from their IL warehouse and usually get stuff two days later.
Many like them, in fact so many like them that the feedback has Round2 keep producing them and including them in their kits. Many kit collectors/builders appreciate the marketing, graphic arts and nostalgia of the boxes as well as the kits but they don't want to keep the bulky kit box around after building.
This looks like a fun kit with those new decals. I'll gladly display the mini box next to the kit and recycle the big box it came with.
