I recently dug up the old WIP and made some adjustments then scrapped it and rebuilt a new one from scratch.
Most likely the ECTO-1 image is inspired by the Alternator/Binaltech version of the Transformers from 2005 - but since those boxes vary in detail I started with the original G1 style box art as a warm up.
The idea here is to design boxes for fans to have that can fit their multi-scale versions of Ecto-1. Interest in this project was re-ignited upon the release of the 1:18 scale Hot Wheels Elite version of ECTO-1. I make the box in several themes/styles and you print it yourself on card stock and fold and glue accordingly, make your own foam padding, and show your car in said box.
I also made Blister Card version and have outlined the different style boxes to make, but have yet to actually create.
You see --in order to continue I kind of want Johnny216's OK to continue with his design. I'm not going at this because it is Johnny's ECTO-1 alt mode design.
The Ectomobile version in the fake box is actually someones Ecto-1B from the Ghostbusters video game.
A big Thank You goes out to the Ghostbuster Model Master SlaysGhosts for use of his custom Ecto-1B. The original thread featuring the Ecto-1B and other three Ectomobile car versions can be found through here: [link]
The box used as a reference for this WIP is actually the US version of the G1 Jazz Box - The descriptions & terms are inspired by the Ghostbusters movie.

it was a legit surprise and a shock to see BOTH (box design and Ecto) .. all Three and a half if you count my limited released image of Starscream's Ghost and the Gozer the Gozerian Faction logo
I'm such a whore though - I own TWO Ectotrons (ome modded and the other in box)
There have been other designs like it, just not this one
I'm kind of going it alone - so this is just a side project thing to do kind of project.
If I come up with descriptive details for Ecto-1 I'll post just the stat card for you guys to have and sketch out a mock mural of the fake mural for the mock box for the toy robot car that doesn't exist too!
