The last sale of 2020 on December 31st had special engravings on the offerings. The old anodized versions of the Franken Sparrow (Fawkes with black inners AKA Mephisto) and Nugget Billet Boxes were sold with the 2020 logo and the Dumpster Fire engraving and the White (Blanca) and Chameleon Billet Boxes are new Cerakoted versions, complete with the Dumpster Fire engraving instead of 2020. I don’t know about the Chameleon, but the Dumpster Fire Blanca did not come with any reference to the Dumpster Fire on the box. The Franken Sparrow and the Nugget boxes did mention the Dumpster Fire engraving on the box.
Side Note: Billet Box Vapor does not consider these a “Special Edition” like the Barbs or YOTD, but did confirm they are a limited run, which is obvious at this point.

General Billet Box Info
The Billet Box is roughly the size & shape of a pack of cigarettes. It has a completely enclosed battery, chip, screen, tank, and atomizer. Billet Boxes are very customizable and there are dozens of modders that create all sorts of great addons from panels to colored Boros. They are relatively Hassle-Free and have gotten better over the years.
Billet Box was started in 2011 and saw tons of changes from that point until 2016. In 2016, there were quite a few changes including going from Rev3 to Rev4 and going from the DNA 40 chip to the DNA 60 chip. There have been very few changes since then and I can only assume this has to do with government regulations pending. I am sure that is frustrating to see with China not caring about the US Government.
Colors were introduced in 2014 with Rev.3a as well as occasional button changes. Prior to this, they were all the color of raw aluminum.
In 2016, they went away with the cover that slid up with the ball bearing to a magnet-based panel.
The Billet Box logo changed in 2018 and they started printing the logo on the body under the fire button panel at that point. Prior years, at least 2016 and 2017, the logo and year were printed inside of the panels. They also started using a presentation box with the new logo to ship the devices in.
