Preliminary box art.

Wow, does that look bland. Stock artwork crowded together with a stock background set behind them. looks like it was put together in five minutes. :roll:

The Data Squad DVD covers looked so much more interesting an vibrant this.

I sincerely hope this isn't the final cover design, as this is just keeps making that 80 bucks price look less and less appealing. :|

Nah, it's just the promo art of each kid and their partners tacked on to the blue background of the old merchandise.

If they were going to use existing artwork for the package, they could have used any of the following (minus the Japanese logo) which look much nicer than that.

The last one is actually the official box art of the 2007 Japanese DVD box set. And THAT looks awesome! :grin:

Expect official art for DVD releases.

Especially for a 10+ year old English dub of a Japanese cartoon that is, for all intents and purposes, dead in America.

Aside from the Xros Wars anime and manga, Japan's been getting new video games (and still are) in recent years.

It's the merchandise sales that determine the life of a toyetic anime.

And, like I said, while it's dead in America, it's still alive in Japan.
