    I am finishing up my seeker boxes. But I am most excited about Sunstorm, it has sparked a fire under me to do custom boxes for all the diaclone and e-hobby variants, G1 style. I figure it would be pretty sweet to have them next to the originals, Tigertracks sideswipe, black and red Tracks, Clamp Down and Deep Cover. It'll be worth popping them out of the lame e-hobby boxes and put them in G1 style. I am doing them under D.I.A.CLONE instead of Autobot or Decepticon. I am going to file their techs based off the Dreamwave storyline that showed all the Diaclone's and some other repaints as clones made by shockwave. When I do the US boxes for Soundblaster and Twincast I am going to say they were able to be saved from their battle to the death because of the spark-less clone bodies Shockwave made. The Diaclones I will give their own personalities and Sparks to, but any repaints I will use that story. Anyway bla bla bla here they are. I have a bunch of targetmasters and other boxes done, just need to find the time to assemble them.

    This is his tech spec. I didn't know what to put on his tech, I went with some rainmaker stuff, your basic clone bla bla. In the end I just used a bunch of stuff I read and interpreted from the dreamwave comic.

    Thanks everyone.

    Thanks, I decided I wanted them to be really close to the actual transparencies of the box art, which are super high res and beautiful. I didn't want to purposely wash them out to match the old boxes, seemed like a shame to water down the artwork.


    Well I am all over the place thinking about what I want to do next. I am going to make a G1 box for purple and grey Galvatron with modified boxart for sure. I have most of the seekers done, I am just debating to use the toy pics I have taken for Skywarp, or try to get my hands on toy pics of the purple launchers. Otherwise he's done. The coneheads are nearly finished but I need extra toys (Botcon). I h

    I have the Diaclone repaints to box, and I want to make a G1 Hound and Trailbreaker. I am re-doing my G1 car boxes now and fixing a few things that were off on my first batch. I am almost done with that and have Orion Pax, Black and Red Tracks, multiple Skids and Sideswipe variants all lined up.

    Looks good.. I was wondering how sturdy are these boxes? I remember a couple of years back, that you did some custom boxes for G1 Cars with dreamave artworks and stuff. Care to make something like that please for Rodimus Prime, my loose Rodimus Prime would love to get a hold of one, if not. Can I ask for a commision of one?
