I like that the boxes are getting smaller. I never like how the pieces only took up like half the boxes' space. Now it'll feel i'm getting more bang for my buck.

I'm looking for an Inkay or Malamar with its event move Happy Hour. Pm if you have one I can borrow to breed and pass the move down so I can have an Inkay with the move for myself.

This has been too long in coming, this should have been done years ago, but better late than never, eh? The size discrepancy was ridiculous and highly misleading, and of course very wasteful. This makes things a lot better for storage too, because geez, the boxes I have to deal with are just ridiculous and take up a lot of space. But yeah, glad they're also implementing a whole raft of sustainable measures it seems. They'll realise it's better for their bottom line as well, particularly in the long term, so it's good they're showing some responsible business and environmental practices in the years ahead.

I'm glad to see this change put in place! A good chunk of LEGO sets are smaller than the size of a box would lead you to believe, it leaves more room for sets on the self, and it's good for the environment, so win-win-win. I can't wait to see this change put in place and will be on the lookout for the smaller boxes in stores.

This is a trend that started with the Pirates of the Caribbean, and one that I'm quite pleased with. Not only does it have a positive for the environment, but it's also a much preferable way of LEGO saving money than reducing the actual content of the sets.

Lego is going green! but seriously, really happy that they're reducing the size. that probably means cost also. regardless of cost, it means I can stuff my cart full of lego, with more lego

I'm pleased Lego is finally doing this, because I would always be sad to see how much material was wasted, with parts only taking up half or so of their oversized boxes.

I'm surprised Lego didn't start to do this sooner. But now is as good a time as any.

Good! Might make them less easy to spot from a distance, but at least it'll fill their boxes better now.

Thats wonderful! But didn't they do this for a brief period with the fire villains in early 2011?
