Well... this is a fairly quick one, I was watching the Men's Final of Wimbledon, when rain stopped play --- was gonna finish off my Lego Batman cover, but was stuck for ideas to finish off front bottom... so made this in the mean time. I always thought the other boxes for this were too similar to the retail.. so thought I'll do it slightly different (without the ring screenshots on back). ;)

I'm not really very impressed by the back... but the front is epic.

Well, I've seen the rest of your boxes, and most of them have completely blown me away, but this one...not so much. It's a bit too bland, and the lighting on the main character compared to the Colossus looks weird. Sorry if my critiquing sounds harsh, I was just expecting you to add some of your own flair to make it truly original.

I agree with the people ahead of me, front rocks, back feels a little boring.

Agreed with previous comments.
I have to add, the protagonist feels a tad blocky... perhaps because the art of the colossus feels a bit blurry, making the main character stand out too much?

Nice job,though :D

Your tagline instantly makes me want to make the tagline on mine look better.

Glad to see it look different from retail, I think it looks kinda "bright" for this game though.

Gotta agree with what others said about the back. Sure, it doesn't have the circular screens, but I was expecting something much more epic. Using the style of the logo for the tagline didn't really turn out very well either. The Wanderer and Agro on the back look very blocky for some reason and what bothers me is that it seems that a colossus is fighting with the Wanderer at the Shrine of Worship- which doesn't make sense, especially if you've played the game.

Overall, it's a well made box and I understand it's a quick one, but the feeling just isn't there for me.

I really like the front. Your backs are usually uber-awesome but... Since I am currently experiencing how difficult making a SOTC box is, I think you've done an excellent job.

Thanks guys for not liking my box.. as you know, it's a lot harder NOT to get into the HOF! You guys are doing a great job! LOL

I know the colossus doesn't fight in anywhere near the shrine.. but what the hell... just thought he looks good peering out of the mist into the temple and out hero riding away from him ;)
Okay.. back isn't my best... oh well ;)

@alldreamsfalldown --- thanks... I'm waiting for your box! ;)

74 boxes made (inc. Lego Batman)... one more for my 3/4 of a century.. and very likely last.. guess it has to be a good one ;)

Hm...I love the back. Don't particularly like the front though. The perspective seems off.
