On September 4th, 2020, BBV announced a new variation called the Frankenbox. These are regular Billets with different inner colors. The 1st week was a BX with Unicorn Poo inners and vice versa. Other than the different inners, there is no difference, no markings on the Billet Box itself, but the box had a special name.
Here are the Franken Box Names:
BXPoo – BX with Unicorn Inners (9/5/20)
UniBlues – Unicorn Poo with BX Inners (9/5/20)
Budgie – TMNBB with Nugget Inners and a GOLD MOP Button like the Fashion Nugget (9/26/20)
Oasis – Nugget with TMNBB Inners and a GOLD MOP Button like the Fashion Nugget (9/26/20)
Dob’is – Dober with Kurbis Inners (9/12/20)
Kurb’er – Kurbis with Dober Inners (9/12/20)
Mephisto – Fawkes with Rat black inners (9/19/20)
Ratfire – Rat with Fawkes inners (9/19/20)
Eclipse – RPG with Dober inners and a new button type, a BLACK MOP. (10/3/20)
Ferrigno – TMNBB with Unicorn Poo Innners (10/3/20)
I can’t tell you why, but the reason Billet Box Vapor gave publicly is “Just cause it’s fun”.
These are not in the same class as the Barbara Walters 20/20 boxes, the Dead Flipper, or the YOTD Boxes, but these were not made in mass quanities.

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.
