Its not even so much the fact that I won't get another. Its the fact that the box is freaking awesome and has electronic components to it.
Its just like my Young Justice Superboy that comes in the stasis chamber. Its such an awesome box that I'd never open it.
I'm the same way with my Target exclusive 3-pack sets. There's not a single electronic component nor incorporated, interactive backdrop in any of them, but the packaging is based on that of the original SW action figure "Special" three-packs from my early childhood and have such a cool, wistful retro look and feel to them that I don't crack open and damage them to preserve that whole "1980" feel of everything.

In our hobby, there are some occasions when the packaging is just as important as the goodies inside.
