Guys,

I have done a few reproductions boxes for myself, and I wonder if anyone else would have any interest on that? I actually redraw everything for the highest possible quality and the results are fantastic.

The games I've made boxes for so far are:

-Frogger (proto)
-Time Pilot (proto)
-Video Hustler (proto)
-Magical Tree (final version)

Here I have some pictures:

And a quick video:

Let me know if there is any interest/love/hate for that kind of stuff.

ED!

First Thx guys! It was a lot of work.

If I were to sell any I'm not opposed at all to have a really clear reproduction mark somewhere on the box. At the end of they day what I wanted to do is to have a great looking box on the shelf that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I also made some boxes for my loose cartridges ^^!

The Magical Tree manual looks great. I would be interested in a copy.

Hey Boss!

I have never seen one and my cabbage doesn't have a manual. But I'm planning on making one, or a short version of it at least.

20 or 30€ each box (+ high shipping costs from Brazil)... Too much for my purse,sorry...

Hello Pablibiris!

Maybe someday I will release the source files, but not for the moment. Worldwide registered shipping for a flat box is about 7 Euro. Believe it or not, there is a cost in making these and at 20 Euro I hardly break even. That is why it is only worth making these for rare and expensive games, otherwise it wouldn't make any sense.

If you are looking for a free alternative you can check the super cool work of Riccardo-Konami at http://www.flickr.com/photos/35295132@N07/with/3458642828/. He has templates for about every msx konami game you can think of and maybe that will work for you. Just download and print at will.

To me that didn't make the cut and I did my own thing for maximum quality. Like I've said before, at the end of the day what I wanted to do is to have a great looking box on the shelf that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Maybe somebody else would like that as well, maybe not. It is cool either way.

Great work Guillian! Are those the size of famicom boxes?

The magical tree manual has only a few pages. I don't actually own that manual. If someone has it and is willing to scan it, I'd be happy to send a box in return. I'm also looking for Mr. Ghost manual and a few others.

So we can expect some "MINT" boxed sealed whatever MSX games on ebay soon?
