    Here are the actual pics of the finished toy. This was a birthday present for my 5 year old who has been asking me for this non-existent toy for over a year. I am actually Jealous of my kid for having this thing. Jarrod went all out on this toy and it is perfect. I went to town on the box to make it perfect, even used the plastic hanger piece on the back of the box. When all was said and done you could hang it on the wall next to a real toy and you could not tell a difference from the legit boxes. Only one thing was changed, if anyone can figure it out. Jarrods custom work is well, as great as always. His head designs are as ridiculously awesome as always.

    Only reason you see any of it is because the pics are like 10 times the size of the actual toy, :lol  I will upload more now.

    Oh and thanks for the compliment but the box is nothing without the toy. Ask me which one my daughter plays with. :D

    I think this is AWESOME. Everything looks perfect!

    No flaws from what I see here. It very well looks stock. Job well done!

    @Blue Meanie: The packaging art, did you draw it? It looks like what Derrick Wyatt will do :)  Excellent, excellent work!

    Yes I did. I had an art thread but I guess the pic vanished when I re-arranged my photobucket. Here is the original, colors are a bit off because its CMYK for print.

    I'm lost for words. This is absolutely incredible, well done to both of you, an amazing repaint and box that looks straight from the Hasbro factory. Honestly, if you had that hanging in an MISB display, no one would bat an eyelid!

    This is wonderful, I wish I could have cast that head before it was sealed :(  Truly a work of art on both counts (toy and box)

    looks great for the custom and the packing.
    it is as though it's factory packed.
    and a very neat mod on elita's head.
