What is a CollectorBox?
Storing your upgrade cards in separate tuckboxes looks cool, but some of you might prefer not opening a bunch of boxes to look through your cards. That’s perfectly understandable and therefore I designed this CollectorBox, one big box to store all(!) upgrade cards at once, where you can easily flip through all your cards and assemble your fleet in no time. All categories are separated by dividers and some of them are further separated by subdividers (neither of them being mandatory, of course).
The CollectorBox comes in 3 different sizes, each of them with two different configurations. Three of them feature one row for cards and the other three (being twice as wide) feature two rows for cards. The following table gives a rough(!) estimation of how much cards you can fit into each box:
|single-row boxes||double-row boxes|
|size S||~120 cards||~240 cards|
|size M||~160 cards||~320 cards|
|size L||~200 cards||~400 cards|
Keep in mind that with these numbers you will still be able to flip through your cards with ease. If you want to have a tight fit you can easily add another 80 cards per row. Furthermore all numbers apply to sleeved cards (original FFG sleeves).
Here you can see a double-row CollectorBox, just in case you’re wondering how it looks like. The final file comes with artwork, the pictures shows a prototype. The final lid also goes all the way down to the bottom of the main box. I’ve sacrificed this prototype to show you how the reinforcement rectangles not only help stabilizing the box but also protect the dividers from being squeezed together by the lid. As you can see, the lid rests on the rectangles rather than the dividers:
If you already built a CollectorBox for Imperial Assault or X-Wing, it’s exactly the same concept, I’ve merely changed the artwork.
