    A customer wanted to take his left over parts from swapping out the G1 Siren he had and the KO GoShooter to make a more realistic GoShooter..but has those left over parts that still created another bot..so he wanted him to be a Decepticon and wanted a G1 box that could go with it. I got the Siren image from botchthecrab.com as well as the back of the box fight page, and then pulled various images online, and or just recreated things outright. I made the whole grid pattern from scratch and filled in each block separately. Making it by piece instead of just copying a box, I was able to change the text of the character to make it more Decepticon. I also designed some matching stickers to what the customer wanted..built a mock up of the box to make sure it all lined up, then went ahead to finished version. Clear window added in, all glued together and ready for some styrofoam if he so desires.

    Final Box:

    So anyways...there's a few hours right there pretty well spent. It was rather fun making this stuff. I wish there were more resources online for good quality images of the rest of the boxes to make some more.

    Never pictured Siren as a Decepticon.

    I like this take on him. :thumb  eHobby had an influence on you while you made this?

    no..guy just wanted a purple instead of red set. So just went that way. The blue parts left over from the KO GoShooter are a much darker blue so just tried to make it match there too.

    Great looking box TFPrime!
    The mosaic tile boxes are the hardest to reproduce.
    So much work in to the layout and that doesn't even include your time putting it together.

    I've already told you this in a private discussion, but it should be said here: Your work is the tops.

    Love the work.

    Kind of want a custom Furman/Senior Nightbeat box...

    Superb looking ! really awesome job.

    When looking at it I come to think if you changed him to a police car (with stickers)...then you'd have an early G.1 Decepticon Barricade :D

    Thanks..yeah, it's actually kinda fun building this stuff. I wish we had larger format printers so I could make bigger boxes..I could go bigger, but it would definitely have to be designed differently.
