Buy From LEGO Online Instead
on 16 February 2011
It should be known that the price Amazon are listing this product for is astronomical. You can buy it directly from the LEGO Online Shop, U.K, for just eight squid.
I'm satisfied with the box for what it is; a means of protecting my favorite Minifigures and, at the same time, being able to display them. Construction is mostly tough card (about 3/4mm thick) and thankfully doesn't wear after repeated opening and closings. It features a very good quality carry handle which is ideal for little hands (as well as big ones!) and can be folded down to save space.
Contains 15 separate compartments, each including a free white 6x5 brick-plate that can slide in and out. For 15 of these plates and the box alone, the product at LEGO's Shop price is descent value, though be aware that the compartments are limiting to, essentially, 'normal' sized LEGO men/women. As an example, while these LEGO people will fit in no problem, additional features such objects to held, large helmets/head-gear or fancy designs can struggle to fit in. This is only a simple warning though so don't be put off - having owned hundreds of LEGO people over the past 20 years, I tested out many in these boxes and the only ones that struggled to fit were very special editions with peculiar designs (like the Nesquik bunny from the 90's) and those LEGO people with extra, extra long hand-pieces.
If you're only putting in standard LEGO people, then you can actually fit in twice as many as the brick-plates will fit two LEGO people per compartment, but at the expense of having one stand slightly behind the other.
A nice product that is quite niche, given I have never seen a replica for cheaper. However just beware of those points - shop around, its basically just a cardboard box, and the compartments are so-so.
