    they didn't.
    Custom= Hasbro didn't make it, so it don't count.

    i like the box, but i don't know if i could pay $20+ for it (by the time the auction ends.)

    It needs G1-style painted character art, and the Metroplex/Trypticon back painting.

    G1-style toy inside too, while I'm at it :lol

    The gray border is supposed to somewhat follow the box art, but in this case it does not. That's what throws it off.

    I thought he quit making custom boxes a couple of years ago? Glad to see that he is back (unless he never went away) as he creates some good work.

    It might be the same barcode that came with the Animated packaging. That would be really cool if it is.

    Even though I am not really into boxes, that's actually a pretty neat custom job.

    I have a couple of Mirage's custom boxes and I have to say this is pretty bad, especially considering a lot of his past work. Looking at the mismatched border it looks like the Arcee artwork was just slapped on in Photoshop.

    What I thought. ;) 

    Gotta be careful with his box(es) there, DO NOT man-handle 'em when you've wet hands/palms etc else the graphics will run & you'll end up having a smudged box.

    I learnt this the painful way when I purchased a custom Reflector box from him several years ago. :cry :cry :cry

    Pretty much what I was going to say.
    There is too much empty space and the grey border looks very weird. The character art is too small and looks like she is trying to hide in the corner. More resembles an ehobby box to me.
    Nice idea, badly executed.
