    This is probably a stupid question, but since every side exept the bottom of the voyager boxes have an indents in them, how can you get them out of the box easily?
    pics please!

    I don't have any pics (since all my Animated packaging is in the US until DMK can send it over), but if I remember right the easiest way to open the box is on the right hand side as you look at the front. Slit all the bits of tape on that side, and you can get in fairly easily.

    These boxes are so big. I just liberated Bulkhead out and stuffed him in my backpack.

    If I recall I opened on the right side too.

    I looked at my voyager boxes and I opened them from the left side.

    Looking at the front, there is a tab next to the "Transformers Animated" logo that is taped. Slit the tape on it and pull the tab out. This allows you to lift up on the strip with the co-sells on it. Under that is the overlapping upper and lower sections, connected by another tab/slot combo, but no tape this time. The lower half (all red, web address) has the actual tab, but the upper half (red/blue, faction symbol) has a tab going into the back side (with tape). Pull the bottom half out first, then the top and you can then pull out the inner insert and the toy (yay!).

    I cut the tap on the side, open the flap and slide the tray out, then it's Knife City as I hack away those twisty-ties.

    Nail clippers >>>>> Knife City

    But yeah, it's easiest to get it out through the side with the co-sell, where it advertises any other Voyagers that may be out.

    I'm not allowed to use the nail clippers anymore after what happened with Cyb Megatron. :( 

    But, he's a repair bot, he's not programmed for that kind of action!
