I think I'm missing something here. How are they transport boxes?

Hmm if the idea doesn't originate from them and is purely a misunderstanding… Does that mean it's free game to steal? :)

I have a converted milk crate building that doubles as a storage box for my post-apoc stuff and a wild west stable that holds my wild west terrain. The idea is not that new.

They are storage boxes *for themselves*. The buildings are designed to stack inside each other for easy transport and storage.

Ahha, that makes sense.

I've actually always wondered why no one has attempted that in the past, I always figured they were concerned with the box being too fragile to hold up to use as storage.
Hmm, thinking about it a bit more, I think the best method would likely be something like a shoe box with a single open side on the internal layer, it would allow you to slide out the bottom and grab your figures to play, then slide it back to play the game. My only real concern would be how to keep it together while not in use, maybe some sort of tab that also slides in through the outer building and the inner building.
