Did Grim Fandango ever come in a large box (bigger then a jewel case) when
it was sold, seems most are just in a jewel case?

And if it did, anyone have a pict of it?

Thanks...DE

I bought mine in a box, but it wasnt one of those big fat boxes used to
come in. It was a thinner and narrower box but not as small as the new
small boxes games come in now. I also saw the game a long time later in
Electronic Boutique in a jewel case size cardboard fold out with two
pockets for the two CD's. I am in Toronto, Canada so pretty well get
the same games and boxes as the US.

From a search on Ebay, here is a photo of the box the game came in.

Here is also one of the cardboard fold out type.

Not a very good photo, but you get the idea.
Hope this helps.

Yes, when it first came out.

The underdogs site has a shot of the original box art though, if
you're curious about it.

http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=3925

It's kind of a low res picture, but it's the best I can do as I bought
the jewel case edition too, so no box to scan for you. Basically, I
guess it's the same cover art as on the jewel case version, only they
cut a bit off the top and bottom of the image for the jewel case art.

It did. I've got a full-sized box here, that I paid full price for. I've
also heard rumours of a Manny doll, but never saw one. I'd love to get one
if anyone knows anything about them.

Sorry, no digital camera.

Don't have one, sorry. The link above is a snapshot of a Manny
figure. Not sure if it's the same one you're talking about.

That's the one. I don't know what you had to do to get one, but Lucas
didn't seem very keen on distributing them.

I've tried twice to send two digital pictures (front and back of the
full-size box) but it's not working. If you really want them, I can send
them to you direct. Lynne

When Grim Fandango was first released it came in a full-sized box.
It's a nice addition to the gaming shelf but unfortunately I don't have
a scanner or otherwise I'd upload the pics.

I have the original box and I love the art. Does anyone know if a movie
trailer-style poster was ever released for the game? I'd love to have
something like that.
