First of all, Yes, I could change the plastic to normal, but that would go a bit against what I had in mind (color schemes) Last in the series (I think I'll maybe add one more, but I didn't decided which character it would be yet?) would be the 'Iceberg Lounge Edition' with an Ice blue/White color scheme.

Same process as always. I combined Screens, Trailer Stills and Official Artwork from the game to make the front and back. I've made up all the extras like 'Create your own Riddler Challenges', The small description and finally added some Riddler quotes from the game and movie, to finish the back.

Credits as always go to Scorpion Soldier and Sens for the templates.

I like the color of the box and the art concept, perhaps only highlighted lack a little more Batman. Very good work.

#2, it was supposed to be a Riddler edition,
so I gave 'Edward Nigma' the most attention ;)

Should the Sony computer entertainment logo be on the front?

Good job on the color scheme and layout, but you kind of overdid it with the logos

#6, You mean the front and back? Well maybe your right, I wanted it to look official rather than the plastic, off course. I'm kinda surprised actually, that nobody has said something bad about the purple plastic :/ (I don't really mind though..it's a good thing :) I was a bit worried about that)

Whats funny is I had this idea as well, but I scrapped it because I thought mine looked horrid.

I really like it, nice job.

#8, Thanks ;) You're not the only one, I guess?

AgentLampShade is also planning on releasing a serie of Arkham boxes.

BTW, Thanks for favoring this everybody, you've made me happy :)

#5, it should only go on the boxes that was made by Sony for example god of war, sly, uncharted ect. Not batman, but no big deal.

#10, These games are not made by Sony? They're only published by Sony.

It's sort of a thing that I stick on all my boxes, I don't really know why? but isn't it all owned by Sony?
anyway, you're right about that it could do without. (Only if I do so, I must remove it from most of my fronts :/)

I don't why? but I have something with logos :)

Honestly, I think the image of Riddler with his back to the screen would work better as the focus of the front. It better embodies the mystery surrounding the character, something that's lost on a close-up view of his face.

I'd also recommend sticking to a more grounded color scheme. The hints of purple on the back seem a bit random. Maybe they'd look better red, to match the logo and template? And speaking of the template, the standard grey would be best, despite your reasoning.

It's not bad, and like any other has potential to improve.

#11, You don't need to remove on all boxes just start putting the Sony logo on your future boxes that require it.

#12, Thanks, Can always count on good review and a honest opinion from you, appreciate it ;) I really didn't thought about it as you described it, I get what you mean by that and it really makes sense. About the template, maybe you right it and it doesn't really fit, but I really wanted to use the purple against all the green. I'll try to make some changes to it after I release my final box in the series.

#13 I will keep it in mind ;)

Update:

* Removed the Sony Logo on the front.
* Re-did a part of the the front (removed The Riddler face)
* Made the plastic black, so it's actually a part of the series.

Says "Riddle Edition." Also, the whole Riddle Edition font just doesn't work. Maybe make it the same font as "Arkham City," only in purple?

#16, It supposed to say 'Riddle Edition' instead of 'The Riddler Edition'? I will fix the font on that later on?
