    OK, so we have some of the TFG and have definite plans for more. And being a mom I need a way to keep them organized and off of the floor. Our current solution is that I bought each of my boys an arts and crafts storage box from a craft store. It is basically a tackle box. Son #1 has decorated his with Pokemon stickers and son #2 has left his undecorated. The bottom seems tall enough to hold figures standing on their bases. The removable inner tray can hold shorter figs as well as Trainer Cards. Hopefully, these will travel to and from league, etc. What are you doing for storage?

    I think I'll make some type of stackable wooden trays with indentations so the bases fit nicely in them. I don't want to just chuck them into a bucket and get all scratched. I don't plan on buying too many though, so maybe I just individually put them in plastic bags and throw them into my bag that I take to my league.

    I think a standard Ultra-Pro can store at least a teamsworth of figures.

    Although, I think they said they're planning on making them more durable than the original EU release, in which case a plastic bag'll prolly work just fine.

    Store them similar to other figure games. Tackleboxes work nicely for those...

    I dont have any TFG figures yet but will definately get the whole set when they come out. I loved the game and look to them that I played at Origins. We used to play Heroclix and stored our Clix in the plastic Hot Wheel Car cases. I wonder if the Pokemon TFG's will fit in them?

    Mine are displayed on my desk right now, since I only have two, but I'm looking into a tacklebox for the US release.

    I've used tackle boxes, stackable storage boxes, as well as some of the Pokemon TCG tins...

    The TFG figures are a lot bigger than Heroclix, so those boxes probably won't work.

    open the blisters carefully and you have a vacuum formed protective housing designed for the task of safely transporting the figures.

    [Opening the EU blisters carefully is an oxymoron. But we can try LOL]

    Having bought a few, I know what you mean. I took my pocket knife out and carved my way around the back edge.

    i used scissors when opening my euro boosters, cutting the 'seam' along the bottom and one side completely off, then cutting the top of the back panel to turn the back panel into a 'door'. it'll work until i get more figs and have to think of something else...probably a tackle or card box of somesort.

    I've looked at this case and it won't work for the TFG. The TFG figures are much bigger than the Warhammer figures. The Warhammer case comes with 1" deep foams trays. For the TFG you need at least a 2" tray (2.5" with bases attached).

    I bought one of the Army Transport Platoon cases to try out along with 2-2.5" and 1-2" tray. I was able to safely and securely transport ~40 figures to Worlds and back (Too bad we didn't actually get to break them out).
