I got this little surprise in the mail from the blade-master Mr. Carson Catlin. I was leaving for vacation the next day so I had to wait to open it to make sure that I could get a few good unboxing pics of the Reticulated Box
I ended up taking it to my brother’s place on the 4th of July so that a buddy with a good camera could get some shots for me. Other friends quickly circled around and I got a lot of “What’s that?”, and “That looks cool”. My nephew even wanted to know if it was an Energon cube!
Now to the particulars:
The cube came in a box with Carson’s logo in yellow on the top and a label saying “1/1 the Nerdy Edition” on the other side. NICE!!!
It was wrapped in yellow felt to match the color of the cube which was a nice touch. The cube itself is 2.5 inches of translucent yellow. The the reticulated pattern on each side is unique, and one side has Carson’s logo on it. Looking at all of the details on it made me wonder if Carson isn’t secretly also a surgeon.The box is well constructed and is also pretty resilient. There was a moment of panic when the cube was positioned too close to the edge of the table to take a picture, and it fell to the concrete balcony… but it survived, and I couldn’t even find a scratch on it after I inspected it.
The Reticulated Box, which I think I’m going to nickname C4 (Carson C. Catlin Cube) has since been positioned in my house in a couple of different places, and seems to work well in all of them. I’ve placed it next to random toys as well as more geometric pieces, and it holds it own in both settings and makes a bold statement. I’m betting a few of these in random colors would look good grouped together. Currently the cube is residing on my desk at work, and is eye catching enough to have gotten a few “What’s that?” already.
If you want one they will be available at the upcoming San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC).
Details from the man himself can be found below:
In the signature style of Catlin’s cuts comes the Reticulated Box.
It is a 2.5 inch cube of laser cut acrylic. The SDCC release will be a translucent red and will be an addition of 20.
10 will be available online at memakepretty.com and will retail for $50.00 plus shipping.
10 will be available with Carson Catlin at SDCC and will go for $50.00 each.
Look for the tall bald guy with cool tattoos at the dragatomi booth.
In addition to the reds, I will also be releasing a Lemon Lime and Orange dream edition with Dragatomi. There will be six of each created for sale.

Looking at these pics…the Paw is bananas (no pun intended)
I’m most likely going to be gunning for a mascot if they aren’t all snapped up during preview night.
Lastly-
The N3rdlink team got to r3view a reticulated box. The review will be posted shortly for those who are curious to know more about it.

We just got our hands on some fresh pics of Carson Catlin’s latest custom. This mega munny will be available at SDCC, so we will make sure to get some live shots of it. Here’s what Carson had to say:

This is my very first 18″ Mega Munny. Ive named him “Somewhat Hulky” for his colors and size. He was created exclusively for the Dragatomi booth #4935 at SDCC. If youre there, please swing by and check him out!

This munny is true to Carson’s signature style, and after seeing the colors the name makes perfect sense!

My wife walked by when I was posting this:

Her: “What’s that?”

Me: “A custom munny”

Her: “Is it made out of paper?”

Me: “No. He cuts a munny with a sharp knife or something.”

Her: ” That’s pretty amazing!”

So there you have it folks! This custom has been certified “Amazing”
