Just made some G1 boxes for my loose cassettes.
Hope you enjoy them!!!
Looks nice. Can you explain the process you used to create these?
If the casette bots came in boxes, couldent see it looking much diffrent than that.
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!
nice! how did you make the cardboard insert??
Those look Sweet!!!
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!
awsome idea for skyfire.
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
Aside from being a huge manufacturer (like what Hasbro uses), this is pretty much one of the only ways to do it.
