    Default NES Collectors!! Styrofoam box inserts coming soon

    I have finally found a place that will produce the styrofoam inserts for the bottom of our NES boxes. The cost will be $.05 per piece. I am going to order 2 sizes, one for normal NES manuals, and another for the bigger manuals (ie. RPGS, etc.) I am going to order in a couple days so I would like to get an estimate on how many I need to get produced. Please post here or email me with how many you would want of the regular and thinner versions.

    autobotracing: How did you know??

    Yup.. put me down for 10$ worth... I'll take the regular NES size.. I never came across any other size ones (except the ones inside Tengen boxes, but in that case, the foam goes inside the actual tengen paper sleeve together with the cart.

    If you can given me an example of a different size one, I'd be interested in checking out my collection for it.

    I'll take $5 worth as well. 75% the larger size.

    I believe they had the smaller ones in the tengen games and also games like Final Fantasy with the large, thick book.

    i remember some guy asked for these in a trade and i threw some in, figured he was just too into completion. now i see that this a serious item, although it still seems extreme. i mean cant you just find some styrofoam and a razor blade? ah well to each his own, i dont even keep the boxes, maybe i'll post some "original styro inserts" for trade soon

    the styro's are an important thing for the following reason:

    - it keeps the box rectangular
    - it keeps the game within easy reach, rather than sticking your fingers in to pull the cart (and maybe reshape the box in the process)

    Yes.. I'm a perfectionist.

    but wouldn't it be so much easier just to buy them for .05 each? imagine how long it would take portnoyd to cut out 1000 perfectly sized inserts!!!

    And get them ALL uniform? I'd rather blow my brains out! I asked for so many for two reasons. One, maybe half my boxes have styrofoam, MAYBE half, so that's 200-250 right there, not including the remaining amount, which may not have any at all, especially if I buy em from ePoop or a private trade, where I can ask the seller to throw em all away, flatten the boxes, and send in a much smaller box. Wow, talk about a run on sentence.

    And second, I can take requests for 'em at NAVA meetings and the like for anyone who wants them. Simply sell at cost, and tow em with me to wherever.

    I know I won't use 1000. Ever. But you never know! And if need be, I bet I could ePoop em for my money back+.

    I would like to buy some, but I'll wait for some of you guys to get it, and post some reviews and info about the styros.

    Is this a 1 shot deal you are making, or will this be available later on?

    THANKS!
