    The box still looks like a bootleg than an actual job done for BFG. Logo's wrong, font in name is wrong. As someone else suggested, looks more like a Chinese ripoff trying to trade on BFG's name.
    A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say 'How to Build a Boat.'

    You really think that if a Chinese company was trying to bootleg a brand it would make the packaging look as different from the original as possible?

    Just asking.

    To me, it looks more like BFG was trying to update their logo for a more modern appearance.

    Nah, it'd probably look something like this




    Back on topic:
    The new BFG logo reminds me of Portal.
