    i always wanted a g1 style boxed misb unicorn, i was wondering with so many customizers around this board. would anyone be able to custom a g1 style unicron box to fit the large unicron toy which was released a few years ago. i would kill for one of those g1 style unicron boxes. i just havent added him to my collection because its not in a g1 style box. it would be great tp have that g1 style box next to a g1 style primus. whoever makes one for this board will have some major trading power here.

    I don't know of anyone around here who does boxes. Might have better luck posting in Radicons anyway.

    There was a guy posting around here a short while back that does his own G1 style boxes. He made a pretty nice Classics Jetfire one if memory serves me correctly. Indeed check Radicons.

    Unicorn or Unicron? :) 

    I think they should re-release Armada Unicron in G1 Unicron colors and call it a day.

    Armada Unicron is close as dammit to G1 colours anyway :p 

    mac&cheese - speak to Primularchangel, IIRC he used to make custom boxes. Though with the size of it, it'll cost a shiny penny.

    if I remember right, the Takara release of Cybertron Primus was in a very G1 styled box. Giving Unicron that treatment probably would've been cool, but I don't think I'd pay extra for it.

    I'd like a toy of "Unicorn" too. :thumbs2:  From the infamous Headmasters English dub.

    His sound effects could be
    Ima gonna blow Road-imus Prime to kingdom come! AHAHAHAHAHAA..ohohohorghhh
    and
    You just can't compete!
    and
    ALL OF DUE ARE GOING TO DIE!!!
    and of course
    Darn that Soundwave... EEEEEEUUUUURRR YAAAARRRR!!!

    Ebay:
    There is a tutorial (iirc) for making custom G1 boxes in the Radicons section.
    all ya need is Photoshop skillz, decent card stock and a Kinko's or similar place to print it for ya.
    The tutorial has templates and guides.

    there were folks that did custom boxes on the side for money, but for the most part hasbro went gunning after them. so they backed off.

    Haha, whataya mean used to. I have 90-95% complete, all targetmasters, powermasters, ehobby bluestreak, Orion pax, seekers, and about 20 more customs and originals. I have been too busy to finish or print them lately. Never thought of making a Unicron box though, that is an awesome idea. I will add it to the list. Gonna cost a pretty penny to print a box that size in one piece though. It'll look sick awesome next to the US style starsaber box I am making.

    Please make it like g1 style so that it will fit right into my g1collection. How much will it cost? Just a ballpark figure?

    So would kinkos get the right cardboard demensions for the box with the clear window and box? So I'm saying who makes the cardboard box before it gets printed? It has to be cut and put together first correct?

    Well, that's the catcher. I would just give you the digifile and you'd have to print it on your own, I don't charge for box designs since I do them for fun. You have to find a large format high resolution printer. And one off prints are not cheap. that is if you want factory quality one piece prints like the boxes below, you could do it cheap and piece it together, but IMHO it ruins the illusion, lol. They go by sq ft. And it's a big ass box. my guess is $40-$80.

    But my big question is do I make Unicrons box with a window, or windowless. I am on the fence, but windowless is the precedent. I might have to redo primus's box to have Don's art and the U.S. look, instead of the CG art so they match.
