I've been looking at Bricklink for the new set boxes' dimensions but have only found 8017 Vader's Tie. Dimensions for every other set is missing.
Is there anywhere else that I can find the dimensions of the boxes of the 2009 sets?
Also if anyone knows or could do a quick comparison, are the 2009 battle packs (8014/8015) the exact same size as say the 2008 (7667/7668) battle packs?
Has anyone noticed that the general size of boxes (at least in SW) have grown larger? For example, the 30 dollar Bounty Hunter Chase is the same size as the General Grievous Fighter set, which is 20. I'm talking about sizes in relation to price, mainly. Of course, the value of the Am. dollar has fallen considerably, but I think not enough to affect box dimensions per se. So my question is: why? This just creates more empty space and increases shipping costs. Is it for appearance, perhaps. TLG may be trying to make buyers think their sets are large ones. A penny for your thoughts?
Edit: I merged the two topics, since they were about the same issue.
