    Affirmative - the Man-of-Evil box is a custom. Acquired on ebay. I'll snap a picture and post tomorrow.

    Cool be interested to see it, I've wanted to get custom boxes for all the club releases, but haven't known where to look. Hate the Bay, but it might give me a lead into who can do these for the other Club figures like the Comrade in arms, Man of Asia etc...

    I've been trying to do custom Boxes for years. But with original art, instead of art that's been re-purposed and re-colored.

    If my hunch is correct, the Man of Evil Box should be a carbon copy of the Men of Action art, but with the appropriate colors and such.

    There is one seller who makes a whole line of 'coffin-boxes' - custom and those with artwork for original AT adventure sets. They are fairly expensive, but seem to be of high quality.

    Mine was purchased from another seller. Quality is not bad, but I don't think it's as sturdy as the Hasbro coffin boxes.
    I'll post a picture or two this evening.

    Have the pictures now - and Raven - not far off at all... looks like Man of Action with a twist...

    Yea that's the one I'm thinking of. There are some others out there, but this guy's was the most prominent work.

    There's a box for Dr. Isotope, the art reminds me of Bulletman.

    There's a box for Dr. Isotope?

    Holy smokes - the figure is not produced yet and there's a box already?

    Type in "Custom GI Joe Box" in eBay, and scroll down, you'll find it. Unless he's sold out.
