    Default Console replica boxes

    Hello, everybody!! As I always post everywhere, I have a project to build replica full size boxes for my systems. I've been collecting them since I was a kid (we call collecting now, but really I was always playing the contemporary system and stored them when I got the new one), and never even thought of keeping the boxes, and now, I'm always searching for boxes to buy, but they charge a lot of money in Brazil, so I decided to build some myself. My idea is exactly that, keep them neat and safe and not to fool anyone into thinking they are the original ones, but also to make them look as similar as possible. People've been really helpful everywhere and now I have a lot of art projects done, just waiting for me to print and actually build the box. Someone in a different forum suggested that I'd build mini replica boxes that would look very cool, and indeed they do. So if anyone would like to make one, all you have to do is ask me for a high quality archive of the art and I'll send you. It's really easy to fold.
    Anyway, my neverending quest now is for a very rare box to the Videopa G7200, if you have one or know someone that does have it, please try and take some pictures or scans, so I can make the box. I'm also searching for the Intellivision 2 sytem box.
    I'll try to post some pics here of what I already have, and if anyone has any interest, please tell me so. I'm not selling or anything, just making them available for whoever like it.
    Thanks all in advance.

    Love the idea and more power to you! I'd be interested in a Vectrex console box if it's possible.

    Thank you!!!

    Yes, I'm making some. I'm working on an Atari 2600 and Odyssey 2's The Voice boxes at the moment, but I take requests. If you are looking for something in particular, all we have to do is find someone willing to take pictures or scan the box and take the measurements. And whenever my projects are finished, I' ll post more pictures.

    If you would be kind enough to take those pictures and measure the box, I'll be more than happy to make one. I just need a general picture of each size (high-res preferably) and some close up shots of pictures I can't find enywhere else, like pictures of the family and the ROB itself, of a specific person, I think you get the idea, so I can use the same picture as the box.

    If fluid_matrix provide the pics I can start the ROB project as soon as I get them. And I'm gonna ask for the Sega Genesis pictures on other forums as well. If you get someone to send us the pics as well, would be nice.

    Someone from a different forum is helping me on those (Sega Genesis box), but I'm still looking for the measurements, which is the most important part of the process. And some close up pics from the console (at the box) the hands with the controller (at the box) and some other pictures that I can use the same from the box and are hard to duplicate.

    There aren't any I'm particularly looking for myself, but I do have some decent boxes if pics are needed for a few consoles. A few I have:

    Japanese Mega Drive model 1
    Japanese Mega CD model 2
    Japanese Super 32X
    Japanese Mega Drive Sega modem, Meta Tap, and Controller
    Jaguar
    N64 basic set
    Japanese limited edition transparent smoke PS2
    Japanese launch Dreamcast
    PC-FX
    and several others.

    My Jaguar box has a few dings, but the Mega Drive/PC-FX stuff is pretty clean and straight. I don't remember what else is in the unfinished part of my basement, but there's probably at least some Saturn, Wii, and PS1 boxes if not more.

    I will work on getting it pulled off my shelf today/tomorrow and post the pics and measurements.

    Great!! And please take some close up pictures of the ROB part and of the parts where's the consoles and controllers. That will sure help a lot.

    Hello celerystalker, whenever there's a request for those boxes, I'll ask you, ok? And if there's some boxes that you'd want as mini replicas, tell me so and send the pics/ dimensions and I'll make it for you. Another idea is, whenever you have the time, you'd take pictures of one or two boxes and send them to me and I'd make them, even if there's no requests. As a result we'd have a large database with the files and whenever people would want to build the boxes, be it the small or regular ones, I'd always make them available, maybe even make a website as a search database for this kind of file.

    Sure, those are almost perfect. The only picture that the glare can be a problem is of the face of the robot, the rest I can manage to replicate, and if I can't I'll ask you. So if you could take a couple more of the robot I think I can start the project.
    And again, I can't thank you enough.

    And I was thinking, that maybe, when you get to take the new pictures, you could take some of the bottom part and the flaps, so I can see how it is the folding and how it opens.

    Sure, no problem. We have a few things to consider though.
    1- Would you like me to send the phisical box from Brazil to the USA? (there's no problem with that, only that is going to be a little expensive)
    2- Would you like the files so you can print it in a printing place and assemble yourself? (it's a very tricky process, but if you have some manual ability it would be no problem, and it's the cheaper way, with only the costs of printing in adhesive paper and the cardboard.) (and if that's the option, you can have the files right now) (but I would help you with the process of assembling it, sending instructions or making contact.)
    3- I'm still to build my own box because the printing places at my hometown are terrible, so I'm in the process of finding the perfect place yet. ANd then do some tests.(so it would take some time until I send you an actual fine box)

    But whatever your choice may be, I'll be more than happy to do it. Just let me know.
