    I would like to make some custom Transformers boxes. How can I learn how to do this? Do I need special classes or just a certain type of printer? :confused:

    I'd pm blue meanie, he's done a bunch of them and they all looked great. He'd probably have some great advice.

    Old thread, I know, so forgive me. But I was just looking at Radicons and noticed a few of those, which sparked my interest. I love the Masterpiece Optimus Prime box that looks just like the original Optimus Toy (other than the obvious differences, of coarse).

    Being the nostalgic type, seeing that has made me want to make my own box like that, but how?

    you should be asking in the Radicons General Discussion forum, as that's where questions go, and then all the guys who have experience making boxes can answer your Qs.

    This. Hasbro is very aware and has actually focused on this aspect of customizing.

    "What is needed to make custom boxes???"

    Here it comes....here it comes.....

    You need boxes. Then, you customize them.




    Naw, I'm just kidding, I couldn't resist.

    I am working on a tutorial now to make G1 style car boxes for my classics. I should have it done in a few weeks. Then I am doing seekers, Megs and Prime boxes, then targetmasters boxes. I should have tutorials for all of them

    Lovely indeed. And although I'm sure you've probably already noticed it, your Hotrod tech specs has 'Kup' on it.
