When I got our latest review samples from VLS I was immediately struck by the new packaging VLS is using for Warriors' figure sets. Instead of the black box, the figures now come in a clear plastic material much like an "action figure" at ToysRUs. This is a nice change in my opinion as now people can easily see the contents without feeling guilty about opening the box. And hobby stores will likely welcome this change as well because of security and the ease in which the packs can now be hung on a rod.
