Whats this Brown box doing here?

A package was sitting on my doorstep this evening. A brown box from Red Octane to be exact. I had already received my replacement disc from them, so I had no idea what it was.


Click “more” button to find out what was inside.

Inside I found a wonderful little note accompanied by a Guitar Hero faceplate.



How nice of them right? I enjoyed the little suprise and now have a good looking wii guitar.

Has anyone else received their “brown box” yet.

If so, was it the same faceplate or was it another one?

    remember, you only get you if you applied for the replacement disc.
    otherwise you wont get one.

  • ESP2000

    I did send in my disc for a replacement. Hopefully I will get one within the next couple of days then.

  • ESP2000

    so… is this thing good for UK residents? Or is it just USA? If it’s good for uk I might go through the hassle of replacing my disk.

  • LinkThePhantom

    I sent it in. Hopefully I get it this week.

  • LyokoFreaks

    I already got this plate with my bundle so I hope I get a different one. I don’t see that happening for some reason, though…

    For those who got the new faceplate, how long after you received the replacement disc did it take for you get the faceplate?

  • Daniel

    It’s funny for me. I got that faceplate on Friday, 16 days after Activision said they received my disc for replacement, but I still haven’t gotten the replacement disc yet. :-/

    Just gave me incentive to send that disk back ASAP. Nice faceplate and interesting to see you’re from Santa Fe Springs, I grew up in Whittier.

  • mazer4455

    I dont live in santa fe, that is just there nearest office.
    But yes, I do live in neighboring cities.

  • Ayce

    Got my face plate today and got my disc about a month 3-4 weeks ago

  • CJ

    Did anyone get the faceplate before their replacement disk came? Or, only after it came?

  • Matt

    I did. I sent my disk back in July, then today this showed up, I thought it was the disk. Still waiting on the disk to come back.
