The actual box, limited to 10,000 copies, is only sold with the first 3 CDs. The idea is that as the following 7 CDs are released, the owner can fill up the box. When the final CD is released, owners will receive the 100 page booklet that has a space reserved in the box. Also included are 3 guitar plectrums and a hidden secret CD.
