Back in May 2018 I built a custom carry case (inspired by the official Carry Case and Collector's Case) for Megan and Sundance, although I didn't get around to taking a picture of the structural completion until today and I still haven't gotten around to decorating it.




The body is made of cardboard. The dividers/liners are made from cut-up milk bottles, since it's a neutral plastic. The front has rubber flaps attached to both the sides and to the cover, to keep dust out.

I also went through enough bottles of chocolate milk to be able to do a Collector's Case for 12 of the 13 Flutter Ponies, but I didn't get around to starting construction until yesterday.

The main cardboard structure is complete. I can now start installing the dividers, and then build the accessories/clothing drawer.

@Tak , wish you'd commented on the borked image links. :blush: I didn't notice that until coming in now with a progress update....


Current status of the Flutter Pony case. I made the embarrassing discovery that I did not actually have enough milk bottles for the job (only 7), and I was only able to buy one more today.

I saw two pictures and just thought my device was glitching. It happens quite often. I figured I'd let you know if it was still like that when I saw it again.

The project is looking good.
Thanks! I hope I'm able to get ahold of 4 more bottles soon...

Do you have suggestions for decorating the Flutter case? I was going to decorate the Megan and Sundance case to look like the "Megan's Place" playset (or at least have pictures of each of its sides on the case sides), but I'm not sure what to do for the Flutters' case.

I'd say a background of trees and sky, maybe? Or you could take inspiration from their backcards.

That could work. I was also pondering doing the Sunstone courtyard.

Progress on the Flutter case at last! I finally gathered the rest of the bottles I needed to complete the compartments. Which meant I could also finally install the "deck" that will form the roof of the accessories drawer.
