    Looks nice. Can you explain the process you used to create these?

    VERY nice work! You've achieved a very nice, professional finish to your work! Great job!

    My only suggestion would be to make the character art a bit more prominent. Other than that, everything else looks very well handled! :thumb

    First I created the whole box with photoshop.
    Then printed it out on photopaper (autobot box glossy, decepticon box matte, but I noticed glossy's better) with a HP 5550.
    After that I glued the paper on thin carboard with gluespray.
    Then it's a couple of hours of cutting measuring etc.
    The cardboard insert is also some time of measuring.
    I cut out the 'cassette shape' in a special way, so that the casette 'stands on a little edge of cardboard, and a piece of carboard in the back of the cassette to hold them in place.
    My next projects:
    - 6 little constructicon boxes
    - a G1 box for movie deluxe prime in car mode
    - a G1 Skyfire box for my classic skyfire and a tv show box art character (anyone got a nice pic for me???)

    I'll keep you updated!

    So I take it there's no affordable way of printing cardboard boxes? There's no cheap company that would be willing to do contracting jobs?

    You can get a cheap price from a printer to make boxes for you . . . if you purchase in bulk :wink: 

    Aside from being a huge manufacturer (like what Hasbro uses), this is pretty much one of the only ways to do it.
