Who here has thrown out their DF original boxes? 2 Years, 9 Months ago  
Because they take too much room...and if you have not, why not?

I have mine but they are empty and store over the game room in the garage, just in case I move someday so I can repack them.
I keep my DF in the gameroom storage cabinets. The boxes are too much of a hassle to pack and unpack etc.

I've tossed mine, mostly because drawers make the pieces so much more accessible than the boxes.

I ditch mine as well. I got some of the 20 and 9 liter boxes from another thread to store mine - helps keep my DF more compact and take up less space.

21 sets and counting. Seems like I never have enough!

I keep my boxes in the garage, it's a 4 car tandem and it is still not big enough!

All my DF pieces are stored in their original boxes and i get the ones i need when i need them. I had them in my game room, stored on plastic drawer towers, for a while but it takes too much space. I have about 60 sets or so and they take a lot of room. Gotta have some room to play :)

I keep my original boxes but I have a stash of singles and used sets I bought without a box that I have in plastic drawers. It's enough to let me
build a few quick rooms without busting open boxes.

I've thrown mine out, too. They take up a lot of room and, since I don't have the boxes anymore, they're harder to sell! At least that's what I tell my wife! ;)

I've thrown mine out too as I don't ever intend selling my DF and I have waaaay too much stuff to be able to store all the boxes. I use clear plastic "Really Useful Box" range crates and stack them under my gaming table.

Currently all of my sets are still (mostly) in their boxes stacked up in a closet. I just currently do not have room to store them outside of their boxes. I really need some of those 'Really Useful Boxes'! I wonder, though, if I did store them elsewhere, what would I do with the boxes? I am a big Lego fan too (Lego Flickr: www.flickr.com/photos/7893418@N03/) and came across the same problem with what to do with those boxes. For any collectable, the box is essential. But I thought really, would I ever sell my collection? Or even if I moved, would I really break apart my sets to move/store them in their boxes?

Eventually I said no, so I parted with several hundred boxes. There are some boxes I would never get rid of, mainly those for sets of the 1970's-80's. For DF...I think I could part with the boxes if I had a better storage solution. I did cut out the picture from an old Room and Passage set I bought back in the early 2000's only because that was the picture that really inspired me to get into miniature gaming beyond Mage Knight, and I have it displayed on my game shelf.

I would suggest you save the boxes and the foam inserts . if you have a outtaway place to store them. I have a few sets that dont have the box, but still the foam , and I wish I never trashed them back in the day.

Legorick. Nice lego collection. I wish I still had my first toy collection, I had a crazy amount of MICRONAUGHTS.
