So? That means you can buy them for in game currency on the Exchange or trade for them. Unlike account wide unlocks.
Theoretically; but how many people are going to pay seven dollars for something and put it on the exchange for less than 14 billion quatloos?
Apparently quite a few.

Tholian Recluse Carriers, which costs 800 lobi, are being sold for 100 million ec on the exchange. Lets say an average lockbox gives 8 lobi, which means 100 unlocked Tholian boxes, which in turn means a Tholian Recluse Carrier costs on average US$112.5. If I've done my math correctly, the exchange rate is 1 US$ to 888,889ec.

All of this means we'll probably find these env suits sold on the exchange for around 6.2 million ec.
