Back at the end of February, a front page article on reduced sized LEGO boxes
caused quite a stir -- with most of it being positive reception.
So now that the 2011 sets have begun hitting the shelves, what are people's impressions of the smaller boxes?
I took a look at the Pirates of the Caribbean sets today and while I was happy to see that the boxes were smaller, my enthusiasm was quickly tempered upon closer inspection. The material quality of the box seems weaker, and the edges of the box are not crisp but rather are rounded and creased in such a manner that the printing is visibly cracked. This was the case for every box, so it wasn't a case of isolated damage.
I apologize I did not have a camera handy to take photos, but I'm sure others have the boxes in hand and can comment.
