    Scratch Built and Flawless G1 & custom roadbuster box :updated:

    I made one of my custom boxes for Roadbuster, and I decided to just put the G1 artwork on it since I have transparencies of Roadbuster. It came out.....perfect. Hardest part was replicating the hand-set looking type and text on the G1 boxes. Luckily I have the actual font. Custom box will be posted as soon as I piece it together. Everything on it says and is Wreckers.

    edit: new pics and the custom box

    Damn, blue meanie. Turned out perfect!! Do you also have the bubble and the toy? I'd love to see some MIB pics. And the toy photos, did you scan them off the original box or took them yourself? Anyway, I'm jeaulous!
    If I didn't have a very nice MIB Roadbuster already, I'd beg you to make one for me. :) 
    Nice Roadbuster boxes rare and expensive lately.
    Edit: Did you make it out of one print piece or several?

    Im doing them one piece now. The toy pics on this one are cleaned from the original box. I think I am just going to take pics from now on though because it takes less time. I just set the lighting to match, the position of the toy then take a pic. The magic wand tool works with my pics to cut out the background, and just takes way less time. I have a bubble but I sent it to bubbleformer so he could knock some copies out for his website. I needed an extra one for the custom box anyway. I'll have the extra roadbusters back in the cardboard prisons when the extra bubbles show up. I just need to find a Whirl Bubble, I bought another Takatoku Whirl so I can make pre TF Whirl box. I have an Extra Mugen Calibur I think I'll box up too. My next batch of boxes are going to be ones never made. A US style Twincast Box, White Astrotrain, Sunstorm, Crosscut and Roadrage. I think those will be fun. The I am going to do Some custom Predacons with the Don Fig artwork from the MTMTE guides. I have a bunch of finished G1 style Animated boxes that are just waiting for toy and transformation pics.

    Thanks guys. I am definitely going to continue to make them. My next set is going to be the Targetmasters and seekers I think. I should be able to pop those out in a week or so. There are a few modern G1 boxes I want to do, and some G1 style boxes for the Diaclone toys.

    I love the G1 box. (sorry, I'm not a huge fan of the modern artwork + oldskool style boxes)

    The flap corners need to be rounded though :wink: 

    Great work :thumb
