DRAWERBOX™ Update!


Hey gang! We're getting more DrawerBoxes™ in shortly, along with a new innovation to stabilize your stacks of DrawerBoxes™... the Boxlox™! What is a Boxlox™? From the DrawerBox™ website:
For some time we have been working on a major enhancement that we think will take our DrawerBox concept to the next level. We know that many people have been doubtful about the usefulness of DrawerBoxes because they believed that they would tip forward when the drawer was pulled open, making them awkward to use. While this was never a problem except for the top box, now even the top box can be pulled open to its fullest extent without any concern about tipping.

How do we accomplish this? We are excited to introduce our Boxlox™ box anchoring system. This is a unique system of clips that are only available with DrawerBoxes. The clips attach the sides of the shells to each other, creating a unified bank in which each DrawerBox stabilizes the other. When a drawer on the top level is pulled open, it is held in position by the others without requiring something on top of it to counterbalance it. And when Boxlox are used on the lower boxes, the clips will provide more stacking strength by securing the sides of the shells to each other and keeping the sides of each level centered properly above the sides of the unit below. This ensures that the support sleeves create a column, transferring the weight of the stack to the floor.

Effective immediately, all DrawerBoxes, both longs and shorts, are shipping with the modification required to accept the clips. And each case shipped, through Labor Day, will also contain a sample set of clips to tie 2 DrawerBoxes side-by-side. Additional clips will be available through our website.

But we have not forgotten about the loyal customers that have already purchased DrawerBoxes in the past. Boxlox require heavier cardboard to work properly and DrawerBoxes have always been manufactured with heavier weight material to provide extra strength. Because of this, existing units can be easily modified to accept the Boxlox and we have templates we can make available upon request.


Boxlox™ will be available at both stores early next week! Thanks to everyone for making DrawerBoxes™ a required part of our inventory! I think they're great!

Hey Bill, could you add Feedback #1 into my box(#412) and Thor #1(if it could be the zombie variant that would be awwwwesome, but i don't know how you do variants and stuff with pull list).

Hey sam... will do, but the Thor #1 variant is a 1:20 if I remember right, so it won't be at "cover price", IF I GET ENOUGH. Just so you know. The only way I'll 100% guarantee a variant is if you also want 20 copies of the regular version. Heh.

hah, last night i realized, 'oh wait, i'm going to be paying more than 2.99 for it'. So hah, I guess I'll just go for the normal copy, I was just on a Marvel Zombies bend. But thank you anyways.

Hey sam - By the way, do you just want the first issues of those, or do you want to sign up for a sub to them? Either way is fine, just let me know.

And sorry about the blasted variants. Unfortunately, more people want them than I ever get copies of. And they attract speculators from far away who never set foot in the stores at any other time. I could tell you stories...

I just wish I could get everyone everything they wanted.

Well I wasn't sure if it was just going to be a normal variant type thing like i saw X-Men #200 was, because you had like half/half, or it was more rare.

Uuhm, I'll just pull the first issues, to check out how they are.

oh and by the way, I had ordered a copy of Meltdown before I had my box, so I don't know if it will go in my box or not? I just remembered it comes out next week, can't wait!

craig(box13) - You know what I want to see? I want to see a LIMITED variant comic book that comes with a cheese sandwich! That's what I want to see.

Bill would it lose value if you ate the sandwich???

Anyone read Amazing Spider Man? He has got this guy in one panel hanging the guy up to let the rats eat him and Pete is in his street cloths the next panel he is in full Spider suit. Any way Pete is an Angry boy. LOL
