    :( Must be disappointing to find they only sent the racket head ... I hope it's not indicative of quality control ...

    Buck off, kwun!! :D That's just...mean. Going by the size it can't be shoes, so I'd guess.....grips? Kinda looks like a big box of grips to me. Could also be some sort of clothing, but that'd be the first time I'd see it packed in a box....

    That's Lin Dan for sure. The posture, the way he holds the racket - maybe Li Ning won't notice, but maybe adidas is gonna be in trouble soon...? :D

    Adidas Formotion/Techfit football shirts aka "player versions" come in boxed packaging sometimes and was my first though here but grips is a good guess as well [​IMG] ...

    The box should have gotten "lost" in transport and then magically some leaked photos appear on a chinese badminton forum and make their way here second hand ;). But too late for that now, so no more teasers until countdown :rolleyes: (aka teaser campaign phase II: involve the big forum honcho with some freebies for some more free publicity :p)

    you mean something like this?

    H-Adidas-X13199-Zoom.jpg

    could be the newest idea for badminton outfit from Adidas?

    i know they want to popularize badminton, this would be a bit on the desperate side though...

    Especially Indonesian and Malaysian WD/XD oO"
    Apart from Goh LY (and a few other, less known exeptions) they all seem to have a....healthy appetite :D Especially Kido's family *shudder*

    sorry to disappoint you guys though, even though the color scheme does match the above, but no, not bikini in that box. and you wouldn't want me to review bikini's anyway...

    any more guesses? it is something badminton related...

    I'd go ahead and say either plastic shuttles, strings (but that'd be a lot of strings) or clothes...
