    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.
    Will try and get those tomorrow for ya.

    And now, what can I say to that? That's perfect!! Thanks a bunch!!! Now, I'll do my part and start working. I'll keep updating the topic and all that are interested on the subject.
    Thanks again fluid_matrix, it's people like you that give the true meaning to community.

    Here it is! The first face of the ROB project!!! And I just realized that the bottom left text was missing, but I already fixed that. I'll change the link when I'll have the time.

    And before I go to bed, The back part of the box. On this I had to do some freestyling on the stars and had to make some decisions about the font and text, but I think I got away with it. I cleaned up some of the pictures, but I decided to keep some of the cardboard marks to make it look "boxy". I can clean it up if someone thinks it's not ok.
    Anyway, here it is:

    Can we see a version without the box marks to make a comparison?

    Sure, as soon as I finish one of the sides, I'll post it.

    This was the most difficult so far, and I'm not happy with the finish. I had trouble finding the correct font for the top text, so I had to improvise and if you check real close you can see that. And the silver color that is hard to replicate (I'm not sure is it's silver or gray actually) and I used the same gray I used for the Nintendo logo.

    https://imgur.com/a/qFi0g

    Fluid_matrix, I still owe you the corrected pictures from the front box.
    I have one or two things I'm might be missing. Did you send me pictures of the top and bottom parts? If not, could you take them. I guess the top is much like the side with the face of the robot, but the bottom part is important so I can see how the box is folded.
    Thanks again

    The bottom view is in the imgur folder, here it is direct. http://i.imgur.com/iUp84Ab.jpg

    I thought I had the top as well, but I don't see it. I'll snap one again tomorrow and post them.

    Thank you, I didn't notice it was a different picture from the front. I knew they looked almost the same, but didn't pay attention. Shame on me....

    This weekend is Easter weekend, so I might go out of town, but I think I can finish the project in a week or so.

    And now for the other side. The yellow seems a bit different but I left it consistent with the rest of the box. (There's a shadow in the original pic take makes it look different)

    https://imgur.com/a/qFi0g

    Now only the top (it's practically ready since it's just like the front) and the bottom to go!!

    And once we get the full box, I'll post a picture with it all connected and will print it as a small box and post it as well. When they're apart, they might seem a different, but once it's assembled it's gonna be great!!

    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.
    Sorry for the late reply, but I would definitely prefer option #1 because I don't have a means to print it. Let's take talk about costs to private message if you don't mind. Great work btw!

    Sure, let's talk. I'm away for the weekend, but as soon as I get home, I'll PM you, ok?

    Tell me if you would like the original files to send to you.
    Or if you'd rather me assemble it and send it by mail, but it will be expensive. International mail prices from Brazil are rooftop crazy.
    And it will take me some more time, because I'm yet to figure out how to print and assemble a big box even for myself. (A decent one at least).

    I'm gonna try and start the Sega Genesis box with the info I have. They are re-releasing the Sega Genesis (it's called Mega-Drive) in Brazil in July, and theoretically it will be the same box as the original release, and I pre-ordered it. If I can't get more information on it till then (I still don't have the measurements) I'll get it from the new box.

    I have these already and I'm working on the box for the Atari 2600 and Odyssey 2's The Voice

    And I'm always interested in making boxes. You can send me pictures from a box, then I'll make it, then you send me of another and so it goes, we make it periodically, what do you say?
    If that's ok, send me pictures and measurements of the one of your choice. The Atari 7800 I already have but it's in pretty bad condition, but we can leave it for last.

    Thanks again!!!
