I've recently purchase multiples of some sets, namely 9493 X-Wing and 9491 Geonosian Cannon, and noticed that the box packaging was a bit different. On one of the X-Wings and one of the Geonosian Cannons, the box ends were tape sealed, while on the other sets the boxes were glued with the perforated punch tabs. Is this an indication that they are going back to the glued boxes?
I would normally have been very excited if TLG was going back to glued boxes (since I buy much of my Lego at B&M stores and am terrified of getting tampered boxes) but the glue on the X-Wing box was very loose and it was easy to pry open. Luckily all the contents were there, but it does show that on some boxes it would just as easy to re-glue the box as it is to replace the seals.
Has anyone else seen the glued boxes on larger recent sets?
