    Hey everybody,

    I've always wanted to repaint my Transformers but unfortunately, I'm not really good at it. So I thought I try something that I'm okay in, computer graphics, to see if I can make custom boxes or etc. Here's my first attempt, I'm not close to finishing yet as here are the things I need to complete

    *glossy paper
    *the backside
    *smoothing the edges
    *etc.

    Looks nice. You could probably do with resizing it overall, though; the Transformers logo and difficulty level look somewhat too close to the edge, and could do with being moved in a bit.

    THIS is the kind of treatment the new Universe should have gotten with the integration of more dynamic character artwork. I think with a few tweaks (mainly those that Ramrider mentioned), you've got a real winner :thumb 

    Keep up the good work! :)

    That's awesome. And the art work is a lot better than the same reproduced stance they use for all the characters.

    Seriously this is sweet. It would make me want a MISB collection if all classics came like this. You cut off the U in Universe though :)
