17:55:23 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (talking about how the gundam commitee in japan works right now)
17:56:04 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> panel over
Correction: This was very poorly described on my part. When they first showed the bundle box info, they showed a drawer/slipcover like box for vol 1. The artwork on it was not final. It had a few volumes drawn(?) in it. The question was asked if the (later) bundle boxes would be packaged similar to the Haruhi LE 2-4 boxes. (Very thin cardboard like material but of decent quality.) The answer involved that they were of the quality that you could dispose of after buying.
Notes: None
