Hey Everyone,

Wanted to get thoughts from the US, Canada and Oz folks.

I'm working on selling cases for MOCs, loose figs, EB Kits, etc. and wanted to see what demand, if any, there is.

Would you guys mind giving me opinions?

I am a bit torn on this.
I have such a small amount of MOCs, but do know that since any I do pick up will be displayed, I will always be looking to put them in acrylic for a lot of reasons.

Now, the only issues I have with cases in general is that the sizes are inconsistent depending on where they came from.
I have a few AFA cases and I have two different sizes from them. It takes away from the display a bit in my opinion. I see why my Tri-Logo is different in depth because of the bubble, but it is shorter and just makes my display look 'off'.

That said, I have been buying from Toy Grader to try to keep them consistent for display purposes.

That said.... since I just am getting into MOCs, I wouldn't mind switching sources as long as they are close to the TG/AFA ones in height and width.
And obviously cost is a factor since I tend to only buy 1 or 2 at a time I never qualify for any discount.

Would you be offering UV protected ones as well or just standard acrylic?

anyway.......

I keep balking at getting some. I could do with 50+ but the cost is prohibitive.  I'd settle for enough for my MIM run & my better quality MOCs.  Postage is the next killer.  I'd settle for sea mail & wait the few months. Smile There are at least 4 suppliers already & I'm not sure if you could compete?

I think it would be an uphill struggle to compete with whats already available out there in terms of price & quality if I am honest.

It would all hinge on those 2 points IMO

Good points guys.

This would be a joint venture with GW and the quality has been great all around. I'm not worried about that.

In the US I'm competing with AFA and Oscar and frankly that does give me a little pause

"This would be a joint venture with GW" this makes a big difference.
You could put me down for a pre order of 25 or a similar quantity that can be shipped in a cost effective manner. ie. sometimes it's cheaper to get two smaller boxes than one big one.
