    Man, I love the box. So much cooler than just having a figure shipped in styrofoam. Really glad that Ken is thinking about what his hugest, nerdiest fans would like out of a collector’s edition. :D

    I have a steampunk library in my apartment, however, so my Songbird is coming out of the box to really add some dynamic and gorgeous attestment to both my love of steampunk and videogames. I cannot wait for February!

    Agreed on the box. Reminds me of my themed Futurama tin toy boxes, which are some of my faves. Nice to know that Songbird doesn’t fall into any of the typical pitfalls for a CE that cuts corners (like making it hollow). Really nice effort, Irrational!

    Same here. I’d also reserved the Songbird Edition. Really looking forward holding it in my hands.

    Really great to see so much effort and attention to detail put into the promotional material, even if it’s not the edition I ordered. The sculpts for Songbird are killer, and the stylization of the box is absolutely in the right line with the intended effect for collectors. This is going to look handsome in a lot of people’s homes!

    Also love the box. Now it will look amazing even in the box. Going right on my shelf next to my other bioshock figures… all in their cases lol. Lighted display case soon. Thanks Ken!
