Novacom Boxed Set Preview!

If there's one thing I've always enjoyed about Odyssey besides the actual episodes themselves, it's the behind-the-scenes material. Today, we have a special audio clip from the 60-minute bonus disc that will be included in the Novacom Saga. This one features Kathy Buchanan's take on the creation of Connie's love interest, Robert Mitchell. Some of this stuff we've read in the Official Guide and heard in the Official Podcast's interview with Steve Burns, but one thing we've never heard before was the voice of the actor who was originally cast to play the character.

For more exclusive audio clips from the bonus disc, head on over to the AIO Wiki, the Odyssey Scoop, and the Ceiling Fan.

New photos of the Novacom Boxed Set have been circulating around the Odyssey community for a little while, so I thought I'd go ahead and post the high-res versions of them. I was really impressed with the amount of thought that went into designing this product. I especially like the way the top cover opens and has a magnetic edge that keeps the box "locked" when closed. The CD sleeves are a nice touch, as well.
