I like the new packaging, the pretty pic of the painted model on the front and the fact you can turn it over and still have a look at the product, this covers both bases and I have no issues with it at all. I think it just looks better and more modern somehow compared to the old packaging.
One of the first things to note is that these 'finecast' models come on little sprues like plastic kits. Mine contains a lot of flash as well and took some triming to get it all sorted, the bit in the middle between the tree and his groin was a particular pain. Now we come to the big problem with this change though, quality control.
Overall a big meh, nice crisper detail runied by the worry of bubbles and price rises that are never welcome. I won't be going out of my way to particulary buy finecast miniatures until they get their quality control issues sorted, which is a shame as I feel there is a lot of potential here.
