This is some of the worst packaging I've ever seen. Completely useless, but it looks great on a shelf.
But if it looks great on a shelf, then it's not completely useless, is it? I've only read about it and seen VG unpacking it, but it seems pretty cool to me- esp. the disc-holders themselves. I've also read that you can open the door and lay it on it's side- the door acts like feet and you can display it that way, w/ the Br Ba still visible. Also cool that it's size allows it to fit on a shelf w/ other BR's (unlike many of these collector's boxes/packages). From the unpacking vid it looks like a lot of thought went into the packaging and the extras (I would def. use the apron and carry the coin around).
All that being said, I have all the individual seasons except the final 5b (which I'll get once the price comes down- still have those 8 episodes on my DVR), so I'll be passing on the barrel. As usual, though, will miss some extras. It sucks that the most ardent fans (those who buy the seasons as they are released) have to either double-dip or miss out, but that always seems to be the case.
