    Another question. I just printed these out and the appear to be too big for the packaging. Did the seller change the dimensions of the product?

    ::EDIT::

    Never mind. It was an issue with OS X scaling up the images to 111% for printing.

    I reloaded all of the files. Please let me know if a link is broken and I'll fix it. Somehow I've misplaced a few. If someone has these files, please let me know and we can arrange for you to E-mail them to me.

    Tonight I also started scanning in some standard 200x and Snakemen cardbacks, as well as a Classics cardback. I could use a really good scan of the evil mutants faction logo, or maybe someone could ship one to me. I'll be scanning the stickers that came with one of the recent MOTUC releases.

    Sorceress was at the top of my wishlist since the line started!

    Note: Shadow Weaver's cloak prevents her from fitting in the clamshell cases.

    She looks great in that case. Thanks for posting all of the clam card art. Are you printing them on heavy matte photo paper?

    Looks great! I was wondering if her wings would fit in there as capes don't. We need to find a deeper packaging for those caped figures.

    Iceman, if there were any viruses they'd be in the font files, which were given to me a long while ago by another Org member. I scanned the whole download with Ad-Aware, Microsoft Essentials, and yes even Avast, and no threats were found.

    You tried to do up any kind of Generic Cardback up for all of these inserts yet A.C.?

    Maybe something with just some figures released, and logo, etc... a very vintage package style cardback to go with this way to store the figures.

    Absolutely! Check at the top for the downloadable template files.
    I also just added a second Kobra Khan download with the Snakemen faction logo! The mini comic for Kobra Khan ("Clash of Arms") is also available for download, on the miniature mini comics page.

    I'm very happy that you keep this project going.

    One kind request though: could you provide a template with a larger blue area (sky) version for use with the vintage figures?

    What I meant was some kind of "generic/cover all" [back of the insert] like the old figures had that displayed a few characters.

    ...like this "just to explain what I mean...




    ...ya I know its not really needed, but if you might have one mocked up laying around somewhere already, is there any chance you might share one with us?

    Great news! The master template file has been updated with the lower punched/unpunched style you're used to seeing with the vintage figures. I've also included within that file a template that will allow you to create Top Toys card art! I've already begun loading new punched, unpunched and Top Toys PDF's to the download list for every figure available. The Terror Claws Skeletor and Thunder Punch Skeletor PDF's are finished, and I've added individual thumbnail images for every PDF on the list - this will make it easier for people to decide which PDF's they want to download, and they're just fun to look at too! If there are any particular characters you'd like me to get too first as I'm processing these new PDF's in my spare time, please let me know. Also be sure to tell me if I've made any errors on anything so that it can get fixed. Thank you!

    Thanks for the kind word Spartacus! Always love hearing feedback from a fellow Photoshop user.
    I'll see what I can come up with for the cards' back art. Yet another project I've had on the back burner too long!
