Does anyone know if there were different display boxes for the two Topps Tarzan 3D releases? Because...

Top one appears to be quite scarce, while the bottom one is the one commonly seen.

There is also a file copy of Woody's of the top one that appears to be a production box he flattened, so I would guess it was actually used... but that is the question, isn't it!

A little more research shows that the more common box above, was similar to Topps' other very early display boxes in that it was like a 'shoe box' with the top fitting over the bottom. It appears that a box card was included to stand up in the open box.

Current hypothesis among everyone who responded (all one of you), is that the 'shoebox' style was issued first for "She Devil" and the 'folding lid' style was issued for "Savage Fury". This may have been one of the first examples of the 'folding lid' style box that Topps used from this point forward.
