For a long time now I have been waiting to use my wonderful boxes that deliver plastic-crack-addictions… While this is still in the beginning phases of how to do this and how to do it well… The initial results are pretty nice! Not only is this a great way to recycle use of these boxes but they will help add to your displays!
So first things first… You need to save ALL your Transformer Boxes / Toy boxes that have “clear” packaging. Roughly 1 Deluxe box equals 1 energon cube. Each cube is about 2cm or 1 1/2 inch on each side. You can make these smaller, but I like this size as it scales nicely with Deluxes and Voyagers.
Unfortunately all I can say right now is I am working on perfecting this process. My plan is to have two methods.
1) Basic method that involves using a pattern and cutting the pattern out. Using then either tape or glue to shape the cube.
2) Advanced method using heat to melt the plastic to shape the cube. This method is much more difficult because if you melt the plastic to much it will rip, burn, and even set something on fire!
My goal is once I have this done I will even have some print outs such as patterns, and interior’s that you can place inside for different effects.
