I've got myself a nice big toolbox from a tried and tested brand I like - (Keter ROC, if anyone's interested).
I'm currently in the process of finding proper material for the minifigure trays I intend to fill it with.
I've heard about the pros and cons of foam vs magnetized racks, and ultimately decided to go with foam, as it's simple, low cost, and generally a project that can be finished quickly and efficiently.
The question is, what kind of foam?
I've already had a recommendation for memory foam, but it turns out it's regarded as premium mattress material, and it's priced accordingly in the shops I have access to. (I intend to avoid international deliveries.)
A toolshop sells perforated foam sheets in more or less the right size. The exact material is undisclosed, but it looks like the same stuff youtuber-wargamers recommend for home made carry cases.
The drawbacks are, it's between half again or twice as expensive as my other options, and I anticipate it might start to fall apart along the perforations after some use. I also doubt it could hold it's shape very well if lifted out of the case while loaded.
Another shops sells two different kinds of foam sheets at way better prices; They are unperforated, which I prefer, and have no problem with cutting it to size by myself.
Thing is, one of them is EVA foam, and the other Polyfoam, both I suspect might be too rigid to keep the figures safe. The shop deigned not to respond to my letter of inquiry, so that remains a mistery.
Does anyone have an opinion on the matter?
