Well, here we are. I have finished my set and it is now available to you all. I have spent a lot of time on this making this something special to me and hopefully something this community will love as well. This Is my custom set for you all to use!

The set includes:
1 Box sleeve for the 3 Movies with a guide to fold. (Box has been removed due to coming update that vastly improves Build design)
3 Covers with an inner image (if using blue case I recommend no inner image, I think it looks weird)
3 leaflets with a chapter guide on the inside
3 disc labels (my discs in image are placeholders, my CD printer died and only had these test one. yours will differ)
And 3 sets of mini lobby cards, 1 set for each movie.

I printed the Covers and Leaflets on a standard double sided glossy paper
The Box and the Mini Lobby cards were printed on a card stock similar to collectible cards. The paper was also a matte finish.

Without further ado here is the set!

PLEASE DO NOT DISTRIBUTE AND USE FOR PERSONAL GAIN!!! IF I SEE THESE ONLINE BEING SOLD WITH MY ARTWORK THE LINKS WILL BE PULLED!!! AND WILL BECOME PAID ONLY.

Update: links will be updated to fix typos I have found. Nothing major.

Here are my Covers (I posted similar covers in another thread with vastly different backs) I have attempted to create my own backs, yet I am still working to perfect the backs of these covers. I am not quite satisfied yet but want to share my work and progress.

Constructive Criticism is welcome!

Nice work. I quite like the backs you were able to come up with.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

I agree, i like that you went with the planet backdrop on the backs, quite a nice unifying touch! however, my only complaint is that the rectangular image boxes interspersed with the texgt just looks a little dated to me in terms of style.

Yeah I kinda want that Retro Feel, but here is another version

I really like these covers, but the one criticism I have is the credits are very small and could be enlarged to fill the empty space, other than that, this is a fantastic set you have here. Thank you so much for putting so much time and effort into this!

Larger update

New update. I have images back on the back. I know it’s dated, but I really like the retro look. Could change again or have 2 variants.



Here is a box update as well. The top image is minor changes to make it cleaner and grammar spelling fixes as well as alignment. The bottom, however, is a bigger change. I really just Added a CBS FOX VIDEO Logo. Again this is still not permanent and can change as well.


I am working on Posters and Cards and hopefully will have some shot of those up sometime soon.

Thank you guys for the honest comments of praise and criticism. It just makes me strive to do better.

Been lurking this thread a bit, and I must say, this version is way better imo compared to the rest. In the version prior, the back seemed too vacant and empty, even with the text. And in the version before that, the images chosen for the back, I think, both “blended” and seemed out of place, if that makes sense. Here, the images posted on the back work way better, and plus the borders added adds more professionalism to it all.

The only nitpick I’d voice is that the text (the paragraph ones) in a few places is trying to fight for center stage against the background image (most notably in first and third image). It’s not a MAJOR issue, and hell, I’d use your covers as is, but my suggestion is to maybe have some kind of semi-transparent background behind the text. In other words, your text’s background could be black, but not solid black. Just faded and transparent enough so that you can see the background image and still have your text really pop out. Overall, really dig it!

First off thank you! Second I am still learning (pretty much self-taught) and I am not sure how to add that offset shadow to the back. Once I figure that out I will definitely add that!

This is what I want to do. Phildesfr did it very well, I wish I knew how to add this effect. I am using Illustrator CC

I am also having a hard time finding HQ images of the shots I have or similar shots. they all get pixelated when I zoom in to look at the text I am working on. Not sure how it would look printed.

If it’s similar to adobe photoshop, you might have a blending options or layer options, where you can chose an option for a drop shadow.

I do a drop shadow but its literally a big shadow cloud behind the lettering. But I will look into what you say and see what i can find and learn.

Heres another lil update.

Covers have some font change, with a type of drop shadow behind for legibility. I also Squared up the alignment of text and images to have even “borders” and update backgrounds.



Here are some TOPPS W.I.P (inspired by Rowlims’s) I am trying to make my own, these will probably lose the characters and become source references that were used to make Harmy’s Despecialized.

some quality work you’ve done mate - love the slightly different tweaks you’ve done along the way too - the more possibilities, otions and choices the better 😃

and also the choice of the '92 boxset for the box itself 😃

 

Keep up the quality work - hope you don’t mind, I’ve added your boxset to the ‘3-in-1 and boxset covers’ thread, here - http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/A-list-of-Box-Sets-and-3-in-1-Trilogy-covers-by-otcom-users/id/53673

Awesome to see it added to the list! The revisions will probably be coming more until I feel 100% satisfied. It is nice to share the progression of the covers and more. The “92 box” is more of a re imagining of the orginal VHS one. I am wanting to do the side flaps like the '92 has, to hold some of the goodies I am making to go with the set. Then a slightly bigger sleeve fot he box to slide into. It is going to take a lot of patience and trial and error to get this just right. The Covers will Most Likely be released to you guys before anything else, with the final product box and all later (may contain slightly altered covers for that release lol)

Messed around with Drop shadow until I got what I wanted with the text. Hard to see with smaller images but it looks a lot better and legible. And with all my updates there has been some tweaks. It’s getting close to how I want the covers. Then its tons and tons of work on this box and goodies!

Big Update for the covers and Leaflet inserts. These are the backs to the covers that you see when you open the case. And I don’t think I need to explain what the leaflets are lol.

Here are the inside images for the covers



Star Wars Leaflets


Empire Strikes Back Leaflets

Return of the Jedi Leaflets


Still working on some Goodies for the set, not sure what they will be.

Ah omy god, I really love this…brings back memories. Let’s hope you one day finish a set of these and more importantly ( wink wink) share your work… Love this old school design.
