The Halo/Marvel/HK gravity-feed box?

Does the box itself have a set number?

For that matter, what is the box itself called?

It doesn't have it's own set number or name, just the three logo's for the different brands.

Not according to Sparky. From what I hear there is a number on the individual packages (the date code) and a number on the trays/boxes called a batch reference number. Obviously a retailers takes no interest in such a thing but apparently it helps Mega narrow down when and where the box was put together. Too bad I didn't retain the tray for the 24 I bought recently...

Thanks MW.

The reason I even thought to ask is because I was reviewing one of my old set listing spreadsheets, and I was reminded that the Dragon Eggs each had an individual set #, but their retail pack had a different number. I wondered if something similar was at play here.

Weird but true. I had a shelf elf open a box of 95206 as I didn't know the number and it was labled, curiously, along the lines 'dragons battle set'. Said box had 5 95207 fighters in.

True story.

I can tell you that a couple of the Targets in my area have not bothered with the gravity feed box, and just put out a set of clear plastic racks to set the blind packs in...so if there is a separate number for it, some Targets feel free to ignore 'stocking' it.

Yeah, I've noticed that at a few, in fact, that's how I first came across S4 as they were more visible this way. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't just go this route (or pegged, I quite liked them pegged) in the future as many of the cardboard "gravity-feed" boxes I've seen lately are in pretty bad shape after so many frantic savages clawing through them for a Cortana! A great space saving idea, but they all just end-up mixed together in the end in stores.

*BTW, what do the individual "trays" for these asst.s look like (plain, printed, long/narrow, flat/wide)?
