That's the first place I've seen them under $7, so... not much, but still nice.

It's minor enough to not bother about it. Pokemon / mtg / yu-gi-oh is where the games are at. They're smart to keep them to a standard size.

Then you also have a folder and storage box issue too.

BTW, check the curl on foil slammer.

I do have a positive comment, the art looks pretty good, but yea, without a viable storage solution it'll be hard to collect, which is a shame because people would collect these for the g1 style art.

I got asked about this on social media as well. I must admit I havenít really had a chance to look yet. I might have to do a bit of searching.

If anyone finds something appropriate yell out and Iíll credit you on the blog

you will find that most protection and supplies companies already have products that will suit, trouble is finding them stocked here in Australia or getting them shipped here without costing a fortune.

for Metroplex try something like this
https://www.bcwsupplies.com/6x8-topload-holder

the character cards

they will fit in ultra pro 4 pocket pages but you still suffer slight curling of the foils as the pages are not rigid enough to keep the cards flat

BCW has a toploader for the character cards but these are on back order until January (either a new product or out of stock)

https://www.bcwsupplies.com/3-5x5-topload-holder

the battle cards will fit standard trading card product but ultrapro are releasing TF Themed deck protectors and deck boxes and play mats towards the end of the month/beginning of December

i am aware that Toybot Importz may be stocking some of the gaming Accesories

but for the specialist items as i mentioned above sourcing them here in Aus may be problematic, possibility we may need to enquire through local authorised distributors for either Ultrapro or BCW

UltraPro = Banter Toys
BCW = VR Distribution
