I personally won't purchase S.H. Figuarts unless they come with the outer brown shipping box, I feel they aren't complete without them. I know a lot of other Figuarts collectors feel the same way, so I thought it would be helpful to have a list of what stores include those boxes.
What's the big deal with the brown box? I don't own any figuarts yet but why is it so important to have that with the packaging
Well it's not important for say. But the reason some folks like them with the brwn boxes is because they come inside those boxes when shipped from the factory. Only the sdcc versions come w/out the brwn box.
I rarely care about boxes period. if someone said "i'll give you this figure with box for $20 with box or $10 without "chuck the damn box lol" I often tell ebay sellers not to include boxes to lower my shipping cost

It's a matter of preference, I'm just picky, plus when I do send my sealed brown shipper box figures to be graded, they will take them out of the brown shipper box and grade the item as "Uncirculated". as opposed to circulated if you took it out of the brown shipper box, or bought it without it.
How much of a difference in value does having the brown box make?
I think king said it best. most people just don't care, so value in having the brwn boxes, most likely will not increase. Unless you find a particular person like Harsh.Realm that might be willing to pay more if it does come w/the outer brwn box.
Do sdcc exclusives even have a brown box? Because I never got them.
I got Cell and Saiyan Vegeta both with box from toyarena. (But their sdcc's didn't include them.) I got Trunks with his from archonia, and ssj Vegeta with his from the dude I bought it from here in NL.
So if the manga 3 didn't come with any I'm only missing the sdcc ones. If they don't exist either I'm not missing any. Apart from not having bought ssj 3 Goku or Frieza.
