    I should be finishing up the boxes I have e-hobby and KO inserts for soon. Then I will be making the decepticon boxes (soundwave, Devastator) and 84-85 minibots. Then I'll start burning discs for everyone to make their own. If anyone has any e-hobby inserts, especially Brown Hound and trailbreaker or hoist, please sell them to me. I'd be willing to make a custom box for whomever sells me the ones I need for fan characters or whatever. I forgot to post Bluestreak, here's his box.

    Wow guy! Those boxes really rock. If Hasbro ever did Commemorative series again, I would want those boxes.

    Very slick. I like the Bluestreak one the best. Mostly because it's a different image than has been shown time and time again.

    the 85 cars turned out to be the biggest pain. For the top of the box transformation sequence, I couldn't just scan the toy in the instructions like the 84 cars. The 85's are illustrations instead of pics. So I had to partially transform, prop and pose the toys for the top of the boxes. Big pain in the arse.

    I have an extra sideswipe insert, and I am having a hard time deciding which sideswipe repaint to do. Yellow, Clampdown, or deep cover. I am leaning towards yellow, so I have a yellow and red Sideswipe and later a Sunstreaker in both. Or possibly sooner if they do a KO of him.

    Fantastic boxes!

    Now are you printing individual panels then gluing them to cardboard, or are you going another route?

    As soon as I get caught up on all of my customs, I'll be designing me some custom boxes for my ALT and BT customs.

    I have one that I printed one piece, but the quality of the print wasn't up to snuff. So I print them in 2 pieces plus the flaps. The seam is on the side of the flaps and the bottom of the box. The small white line is colored in and you can't see the seam on display, and only see it when you are right up on the box. I decided a Hidden line is better than a crappy print job. You can see the lines on the side in the pics, I didn't color them in when I took the pics.
