I finally got my copy of the Japanese Mono set of the 2014 re-masters which I received from cdjapan via FedEx. The box arrived in perfect condition, wrapped in bubble wrap, then surrounded by air-filled packaging then placed inside a bigger box. I thought I would share some pictures here and answer some questions. Basically you are paying extra money for the OBIs, the extra Japanese booklet with all the lyrics and for a chance to own what will become a collectible item before it's price skyrockets on e-bay! What is on the outer box Front of the mono box wrapped with plastics bag Back of the mono box with the Japanese booklet The OBIs come in a plastic wrap The OBIs front OBIs back (next) White Album number (next) The Japanese additional booklet (next) The LPs were all pressed in Germany so they are not different than the rest of the world. The OBIs come with a small tapes that you can apply to secure them after you wrap them around the LP (have not done so). Other than the lyrics in English and Japanese for each album, I can't tell you what is also included as it is all in Japanese. Most likely some descriptions of each LP. Maybe our Japanese forum members can chime in and fill this gap. I have not had the chance to inspect each LP yet.
