    I've just won this off MightGaine, I'm pretty pleased to have got it. I'm surprised no-one else here wanted it. It cost $30/£15 including shipping, but I'd had a refund from another seller so the cash was allocated to TF's in my head anyway.

    I'll use it to store loose bots, parts etc, eventually I'd like to fill it with it's original contents again, one day...... :) 

    Obviously it's a bit nuts to spend this much on an empty, slightly tatty, 24 year old cardboard box (it's anniversary's at the end of the month). Soon as I saw it though, I just knew I wanted it, I do love unusual TF stuff.

    Thought I'd share the extent of my plastic crack addiction :crazy:

    Wow. That is pretty cool. I have a shipping box for the reissue Predaking and one for Wave 1 of the Classics deluxes, but that's about it.

    Damn..I was actually watching that and forgot it ended today. I can think of no better way to store a dozen '84-85 MIB Bots. I've got tons of factory cases to store modern toys..woulda been cool to have one from the '80s. Congrats.

    I knew some-one else would be as nut's as me! Perhaps it's the climate over here?

    :lol  It'll be taken too good care of now for that.

    I stuck a note up, and set my phone alarm just in case I forgot :crazy: 

    I wondered myself, but forgot to ask. I've had stuff off MightGaine before, and he's got a great rep, so I'm completely confident it'll be secure.

    That's what I'd assumed. :) 

    I almost feel like I've stolen this as no-one else bid on it! I'm just writing your address on an envelope which contains a TF surprise for you to assuage my guilt :lol  (Don't worry, I'm not stalking you, address is on the box you sent me Kabayas in recently, they're great by the way)

    I think you just answered your own question there, mate. Enjoy your empty, slightly tatty, 24 year old cardboard box. ;)

    I think it would be cool to use it to store sealed toys from that era but I am not sure I would spend 30 bukarooos!
