    As promised here are pics of my Masterpiece Convoy G1 packaging.
    Same one from Transformercon Toronto. This took a while to make.

    All of the work is in Illustrator and Photoshop with Photography of MP01 Prime. Grid and TF logo redrawn and I scanned in the front retro image from my G1 Prime box as well as the background battlescene. One thing to note. Scaling things up as a rule is way harder than scaling down because of a loss of detail as well as many more inperfections are visible. Sooo I spent forever cleaning and cloning and sharpening all the little imperfections to make the image crisp and clear. I even had to move Megatron and Ironhide around so they didn't get covered or clipped.

    I printed the full 36" wide by 42" on the plotter at work. Cut and glued the whole thing to corrugate cardboard. (Same stuff beer cartons are made from) then scored and folded it. The window is a little annoying because you have to be careful cutting it out. Taped and glued some clear plastic and Voila!!

    Looks great, why though is masterpiece spelled out as two words on the box?

    Pretty cool. I like that you changed the pictures of the actual G1 toy to pics of MP Prime, but why didn't you change the main picture on the front? I know it is technically a drawing and not a photo, but I think this would look better if you also changed that one to a picture of MP Prime.

    I think I just soiled myself. This is way past cool. However, I just start twitching when I think about how much effort you must have put into that. Phenomenal job. Now let's see MP-05 like this :D

    Actually, MP-01 and MP-02 are spelt "Master Piece", while MP-03, 04 and 05 are spelt "Masterpiece"

    Still - that is one awesome looking custom box. It's perfect!!!
