    I made an Insecticon Shrapnel box tonight. Well i made all three insecticons but only had enough paper for 1 lol . I like it , i made it for my insecticon set. I also made inserts for the boxes.. Since making plastic bubbles are hard to do i came up with my own insert and added some graphics to it .. The Insecticon insert is full of battle damage and broke blown out monitors. It came out pretty sweet and fits inside the box perfectly.
    When i get my figures out of storage ill post another pics of what the figure looks like inside the box but for now enjoy the pics i have so far :) 

    UPDATE TODAY !! 10.24.08

    I just finished folding up Kickback and Bombshells boxes. I made the inserts for them as well. Each insert is different for each figure so that nothing looks the same onthe boxes. I secruedthem inside with some left over twist ties from my animated packaging. The boxes look a little dark because these are printed on the cheap glossy paper i use for test boxes. Have a look and see what ya think :) 
    OH i also made an insert for the Autobot Boxes. Ill post a pic of the Smokecreen box with the insert inside. I put G2 Sideswip inside to show how it would look with a figure inside.

    Enjoy :)

    The insert i printed on flat cardstock and added the battle damage to it to make it lok like the insecticons were munching on it . The box is on glossy photopaper. This is the cheap glossy that i use for test boxes and the colors print a bit dark.. When i print them out on kodak glossy paper the colors are brighter and crisper.
    As far as price.. Im not sure yet on the G1 size boxes. I can probably work out a price if you PM me and let me know what boxes you are interested in. Keep in mind that im no longer making large boxes, the cost is just too high to make those. Im sticking with the small standard G1 boxes.. I was going to stop making these because it didnt seem like there was a demand for boxes lol.. You can see what im done and what im working on right now here http://sites.google.com/site/archangelscustomboxes/Home .
    But PM me if your interested :)

    Incredible! They actually look like they are eating and gnawing their way through the insert!!! Too cool! The wear marks and ripped metal look on the inserts is genius!!:thumbs2:

    Thanks :) 

    Thats the look i was going for with these guys :) . I have had alot of people asking me if my boxes came with inserts so i thought i would come up with something that is as good as a plastic bubble if not better then a bubble:tongue: 

    Im glad people are liking the inserts as much as me :)
