It arrived in those wrap around cardboard sleeves like AL do.
And that’s why I don’t order CE from zavvi anymore…! I cancelled my Eva CE from them just before they start shipping..!Ah crap - Zavvi had shipped me the oversized Ghost in the Shell CE in one one of those cardboard wing-things back when it was released, and it was destroyed in shipping overseas to the US, and when I finally got a replacement after shipping back the first one, the replacement set arrived damaged too. Doesn't bode well for me getting the Evangelion CE in any kind of decent shape then, either. At least this CE isn't as huge as the GitS one, so hopefully it makes it ok.
Finally, these AK deadly duo have arrived Now waiting on Lappland's release.
