    Absolute what? :) 

    Personally, the packaging is one of the least impressive parts of the Japanese line, as it could be mistaken for pretty much ANY other Japanese TF line packaging.

    I'll give that Optimus is one of the toys that comes off pretty well with the 'make shiny' treatment, though the photos I see make the paint look a bit uneven.

    Agreed - the packaging for this line in Japan is really spectacularly dull.

    The US/UK boxes were much nicer.

    That being said, it just means I have no problems with opening the Japanese versions due to the poor box unlike my western releases which are still trapped in plastic prisons ;)

    For me that type of box is absolutely better than west packaging, but it's only my taste :D  I'm a packaging maniac anyway :D

    Ooo, I just love how the Japanese do shiny paint-jobs.

    Agreed. The US Packaging was bold, colourful, and jumped out at you. The giant "Transformers: Animated" was the best feature, as well as the card art. I would totally miss this box in the store, and it's really... dull, unicoloured and uninteresting.
