These look FANTASTIC! I especially like the lid on every drawer.

Has anyone located them in Canada?

They continue to hold up very well! I've bought two more sets to hold my DF. Being so much easier to set up and re-pack, I've been using my DF a lot more now. Before, with only 4 hours of game time, it'd have to be a big session for me to spend 1 hour breaking it out, setting it up, and packing it back of game time. Now, it's like 10 mins!

I've arranged mine such that, "basic passage pieces" go in one drawer, "basic room pieces" in another, "decorative pieces" such as the mermaid fountain, or secret door pieces" are in another drawer, so that I can just grab the drawers I need when gaming somewhere else.

Although rather slippery, esp when filled with the heavy DF pieces, there are some small "feet" and "depressions" in the lid and base to allow basic stacking of one drawer on another. I wouldn't recommend carrying them that way, but when I put stacked four drawers like that in the back seat, they were heavy enough they didn't budge by the time I got to my friend's place.

After seeing this thread and one other on the Sterlite storage drawers I decided to pick one up to store my Sci-fi sets. I packed mine more for game room storage than transportation so the pieces are packed fairly dense. All totaled, I was able to get 18 starter sets, 5 Alpha's, and 3 Gamma sets into 6 drawers. I'd probably need another 6 drawers for my Passage Sets and Betas. I may leave those sets in their original packaging since I don't think there would be as much of a space savings on the bigger pieces.

My sets: 20x Sci-fi starters, 7x Alpha's, 3x Gamma's, 4x Beta's, 6x Passage; 3x ROTA, 3x ROTA II; and more Dungeon and Caverns sets than I feel like counting (or want my wife counting).

After seeing this topic I ran out to a local Target last night and got two of these. They work like a charm. I'm going to pick up a few more, and I plan on using them to organize all of my miniatures, accessories and DF stuff. I may have to get a bunch more as I expand my collection.

Aracon, Fu-man Chu, and Shutterbug thank you so much for showing us this great storage solution and posting the pictures.

I was so pleased with the first one and I had to run out and get second one. It allowed me to consolidate a number of cigar boxes of figures and odds and ends that I had in my gaming storage. I need to order some sheet magnets next to line the bottoms of several drawers to hold my minis (that are mounted on washers) in place. That will be a winter time project I think. My wife was laughing at me because after I got done organizing everything, I had to break out the label maker and label the drawers. I figure what's the point of organizing it all if you don't know what's in each drawer. Or maybe she's right and I'm just nuts.

My problem is - Target is always out of them!

In six months of trying, I've only be able to grab five of them by hitting the two closest Traget stores whenever randomly convenient.

But yeah, they rock!

Are people keeping their original boxes or ditching them? Right now I'm keeping mine...

That's what I use as well. I use the big one drawer containers for the caverns sets.

This is it...

p.s. I threw away my boxes after leaving them, inexplicably, in storage for a year.

Why did you go with that one Philip? Do the cavern pieces not fit in the others?
