There's a redemption program? Where? What's the details?
Well I've been taking all the loose foam rubber sheets (from the thousands of blister pack minis I've bought, yeah I'm a pack-rat) and cut them up and hot glued them into partitions that fit inside the plastic bubbles in the boxes. I can get 10 mobile infantry figures per box with plenty of room and protection. I can get alot more in if I omit the plastic and just put in 2 sheets of convoluted foam in the box, but I don't think it will stay closed as reliably.
Anyways, I found it to be a good way to keep your figures stored in a nice uniformly shaped series of boxes. With 10 to a box, you can keep them by squads.
i use an ornament box now so i threw mine out, they just arnt tall enough for bugs
and speaking of packaging... i wonder how mongoos esaves money on the mega swarm... because its basically just 3 boxes shrink wrapped together from what ive seen... which means they would only be saving money on shrink wrap... as someone who has operated such machinery i know how cheap that stuff is.... I dont see how mongoose is getting a good deal out of it... not until they start packing a smaller/one box
I keep my Warrior, Hopper, and Blister/Blaster Bugs in my big starter set box. With some well placed foam the Marauder Suits fit well in the standard boxes, if you don't glue the base on them. The Tanker fits in its own box, I use the Plasma bug box for holding my larger bugs that don't fit in the standard boxes, like the Infiltrator and Brain Bugs.
Good question! I don't have room to save all my old boxes, but just in case Mongoose ever offers a redemption program, I've started saving the ends of the boxes with the bar code label. I throw the rest of the box away.
I do save the clear plastic inserts, though. They come in handy sometimes.
