So this is my box for the MGS Collection that is an actual collection being released march 12th i believe it is. soo that motivated me to make this. its kind of simple i guess, but its like a special edition sooo you know.

i originally planned on making boxes for all 3 games that you get in the collection (mgs1, 2 and 3), and including it in with this box, but i knew that would take forever, and i dont feel like making boxes for a while. so yes, this will be my last box for a little while.

this is box #9 which is my lucky number and birthday, so hopefully that can bring some good luck to the box and get some good comments and favs.

best viewed in full as always, and i hope you like it. any suggestions will be taken into consideration for an update.

PS: can someone tell me how to get the reflection good for a 3d box. it really bugs me how i dont have one. thanks!

I love it.

BTW, to do reflections for 3D boxes, you would have to flip the image vertically and then skew the flipped image to connect with the box.

SCHWEEEET!
It has a nice "Collector's Edition" feel to it, as it should.
Nice job.

I'm not crazy about the 3D, but the box itself is amazing. 5/5

#6 - its my first 3d box. i just learned how to use the 3d stuff in photoshop. and its mainly just 3d so it can show the width and that there are 3 games in it.

#10, same. I seriously need to get some of these games. I've been searching for ages but all I can find are copies of MGS3. I'd buy this in a flash.

Excellent stuff mate.. great job. Not a fan of collector boxes, but this is nice. As mentioned above, the 3D isn't perfect.. but it's the artwork that matters. Nicer if you inched the three DVD boxes out a little ;)

#14 - yes, it is real, like i stated in my first comment. go get it, its apparantly only $30 so thats a good deal, first day buyer for sure.

#15 - first 3d box, so i know its not the greatest. i did think about moving the 3 games out of the box a bit, so ill do that for an update.

THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS EVERYONE! :D

@#18, honest suggestion - make this box 2D and it'll get more attention.

I might be posting my modified 2D PS2 temp later today so you may use that. :)

thank vgmaster.

#20, sounds like a good idea. ill fix some stuff up over my march break. i just though having it 3d would be different for me, and to show that there are 3 games in it.

so i promised myself i would update this on what all of your crits suggested, and only thing i really got was to make it 2d. so i did that, and i do agree that it looks better.

hopefully it will get more attention like dmshaposv said (cause i think he knows what he's talking about).
