Riverspoons Studios Vintage Star Wars Custom Box Design

I believe every Star Wars collector wished they could travel back in time and collect those figures released in 1977. As a fan of those vintage cardbacks, I’ve decided to design my own packaging and did my best to capture the vintage look of those Star Wars cardbacks on Funko Pop style packaging.

It was really a challenge considering the small amount of space I could use on the front part. I also redesigned Funko’s Logo to pay homage to Kenner, as what they also did on the ReAction figures logo. As of now I’ve made a total of 21 custom box designs and hoping to assemble them all anytime soon. I’ve included here the first 5 actual boxes printed and assembled.

Researching a high res photos from the cardbacks is one of the time consuming part, but all the effort was worth it when I’ve completed the design.

    1. I'm sorry but I won't be taking orders for this project. The time & process of making each box is very demanding. It is manually cut and assembled.

  2. Exceptional job! Now, if only the big manufacturers would take notice.

    1. Thanks Andrew, if Funko and Hasbro worked together to put up those Gi Joe Funko Pops. There is still hope to make an official one. I hope Funko could make it happen. :)

  3. Oh, and that Snaggletooth design would be my favorite. (He was my favorite character when I was a kid.)

    1. I haven't released my design for the Snaggletooth box yet, I'm pretty sure you'll love it. :)
