Somehow I've got about a dozen of the old plastic Chessex figure carrier boxes--good for about 48 25mm figures each, I think? Flat, rectangular and with a plastic hinge. Some with liners, some without.

Are they worth the trouble and space of hauling to a flea market, or are they dumpster fodder?

I bought one with the foam inside at an auction, but most of mine were purchased new.

I'd say that if the hinges are in good shape and they have their foam, they are worth trying to sell.

If they are the ones I think
They are 2 layers= 80 figs
Great for in hold air travel in your luggage or carry on ( travel? What's that?)
BUT be careful, of old foam which gets real wonky and can damage figures
I use rubber tray liners and put tons of 15s or 20s inside
And of course 25s too

Depending upon the price you want I would be interested in them. 2 layer ones come in either 56 or 80 spaces.

The one layer has 40.
