When you first receive the Hellion it is shipped in this textured black box. On the top you will see an indented shape of the included mouse around the embossed naming of the Hellion mouse.
Continuing with the somewhat secretive packaging, on this side of the textured cardboard packaging, all there is to see is the Leetgion name in chrome lettering.
On the ends you can see the cardboard runs on an angle and exposes the acrylic case inside of the cardboard, but this clear acrylic allows for not much of a view of the Hellion inside.
On this longer side there is a triangular cut-out with a chrome line surrounding it to draws the eyes directly to it. What you can get only a glimpse of is the metallic red button on the Cherry MX Blue switch.
Just like the other smaller end, you see that the box and acrylic are exposed, but very little of the mouse inside is.
On the bottom of the packaging, at the bottom, you will run across this sticker displaying the specifications, requirements and package contents.
Removing the outer sleeve of the box you can see that there is an inner packaging that we have to still open up. The Hellion feels much like opening a mobile phone or some sort of iDevice. There is just elegance to the packaging, that with a bit of secrecy, really got me excited to see the Hellion inside.
Allowing the top two parts to unfold you then can access the acrylic case inside that has the Hellion's instructions on top of it at the moment, again blocking off the view of the Hellion until the last possible moment.
When you do finally get all the way to the core of the packaging there is nothing left but the Hellion left sitting on a pedestal with a protective layer of plastic to keep the surface of the Hellion perfect in transit.
