    The Collector’s Edition of Outlaw Star features a special die-cut box crafted to resemble the titular ship of the show, with a vertical hatch-style opening. The ship’s paint job was hand-painted by the designer to recreate nicks and scratches on the ship—a great touch that should be noteworthy to anyone familiar with Gene’s rather… haphazard handling habits. Open the hatch on this box and you will find a hefty 100 page art-book, full of exclusive line art, character designs, mechanical designs, and even background image concepts.

    Strong suspicion that this will be like the Death Parade LE except being split horizontally instead of vertically.

      Hmm...wanna see what the insides look like before I commit to this. Not sure if I like that there isn't a spine, would have preferred one similar to Bebop.

        Not really digging it, though I doon't know anything about the show. Still, this wouldn't catch the eye of a newcomer imo.

          I can see what they are trying to do with this, but I feel it would be better if they focused on the crew instead of the ship. I'm guessing they will show up inside the ship, but it would probably be better to showcase the ship in the breathtaking view of space with the crew instead. This show has some seriously great backdrops to use.

            Unimpressive

              From the look of things, this box opens up from the top. While I give credit to Funimation for being creative here, this just doesn't feel right. I'll wait and see how this thing looks, but it looks rather unimpressive based on initial impressions.

                Hmm... *BLECH!*

                Don't like this CE at all. I'll go with the regular edition and call it a day.

                  Definitely a fugly looking box, if you ask me... but, I also don't care too much for the Standard Edition cover, so I'm not really up for either one. This box's only attraction is the manner in which it opens. I'm really glad I picked up the UK CE release, as that box is so much more attractive, art-wise.

                    Well that's certainly something. At least it's more visually interesting than the old Bandai DVD set I currently have (solid black with only the title in hard-to-read gold foil on all sides). Hopefully there's some nice character art on the inside.

                        Aside from that unconventional box, it looks pretty good, at least the parts that are visible. But they don't show what's on the outside sleeves of the cases.

                              It is not creative, done earlier with the original Eureka 7 releases from Bandai. And I can tell you it is HORRID. Most people tend to pickup a box from the shelf by the top, and this and eureka 7 look pretty much like standard boxes. I cannot tell you how often contents have been spread everywhere because an unsuspecting person picked one of those boxes up and the bottom falls out.
