Sandbox isn't meant to be an out-of-the-box pretty-wowee-zowee theme.
It's meant to be a wow-cool-lookidat skeleton, on top of which you can
build your own pretty theme.

I just downloaded Sandbox earlier today, and it already comes with a
predefined Kubrick look-alike skin.
I fully understand Ryan's comment about not trying to squeeze a new
default theme into WP 2.1. But I would definitely be in favor of basing
a future default theme on Sandbox, with some pre-prettified skins
