We really love this, it makes everything really organized. We would however like to inform people you can not have all the current expansions (Dark City, Paint the Town, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy) sleeved in Ultra Pro sleeves in this box, we also use card stock printed dividers for separators. If you do as someone mentioned and place cards vertically in the center box, there has to be so few that they lay at an angle or now your game board doesn't fit into the box. We were able to fit everything in except all the Wound, Bystander, Shield Officer cards, the dividers that came with the game and we removed the dividers that came with this purchase to save space.This is of course assuming you want room to remove and insert heroes without having to do multiple at a time. We added a picture to show the spacing we have. We still enjoy this purchase and it makes it easier to deal with than carrying two full boxes around.
Good design and fit, delivers what it states, but overall value may be a bit questionable.

I'll be upfront in this review and say that I'm really torn on how to approach this. On the one hand, it delivers just what it promises...nothing more and nothing less, and for that matter it is a positive when it comes to games with numerous components, or to those that are expected to grow over time as you buy numerous expansions.If you were to only purchase the core game and nothing else, I would say pass on this product. The real benefit to owning this only occurs once you get a few additional expansions and want to put them all in the main box.I would agree with the assessment that it helps strengthen the cardboard box and has the ability to organize and keep an orderly fashion to all your cards, sleeved or un-sleeved. There is a lot of real-estate in the core box and this really does fit in pretty nicely. Second positive is that by using laser cut technology, all the cutouts are pretty precise, although on initial assembly, be careful never to force any of the tabs into the slots. While this is wood, it's only perhaps a little sturdier than balsa wood. It reminds me more of bass wood used in other forms of structure modeling. I would suggest that when you first assemble this, have an X-acto knife to cut the individual pieces from their sprues, and go ahead and tape the corners as suggested via the assembly instructions.So why 3 stars and not 5? Well, two things comes to mind for me:1) It is, IMHO, very overpriced for the type of wood and inserts included. I know Broken Token makes inserts for other games, and they look great. But many other board games have numerous other pieces and warrant many more customization and compartments to keep everything tidy and snug. Where other more complex games with many more parts, tokes, pieces, etc. have organizers that justify the cost. This is juts a card game, there is no dice, no token, no minis...just cards...and the cost of this is the same as those others. As I've had a lot of experience with building various structure kits models (mostly all bass wood) that are also laser cut in same fashion, I can tell you the price doesn't match the materials inside....2) Quantity of tabbed inserts....Included in this kit is 1 sheet of 6 laser cut dividers. That's it. Yes, it's my fault for not reading the product description more carefully and understanding all the components included, but for $30, the least BT could have done is included an additional sheet of 6 or maybe a 1/2 sheet of 3. With the amount of expansions that were originally planned (and those not even announced yet), clearly, people will be wanting additional dividers (which of course you can get a sheet of 6 for $5 + S/H), but 6 is not enough for the current price.I understand that some may think this a questionable review. It's not meant to be. I'm reviewing this product as a 'whole' which includes it's overall value based on the listed price. I would easily give this 4-5 stars if it were $19, or even at it's current price if it included more dividers. For those that are indeed budget conscious, there may be other alternatives out there for you, or do-it-yourself hacks at a more reasonable cost.
Surprisingly easy and convenient! Held all the expansions!

Just bought this along with all the Versions of the Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game that are currently available (except for the Fantastic 4 expansion, which seems to be hard to find). I was a bit hesitant to put this organizer together because I read others had a hard time with it, and having an overwhelming amount of cards (that I've never even played with before) didn't help. HOWEVER, once I opened my game box and pulled out the plastic organizer that's provided I decided to jump right in and inbox it all and organize it right away. I was shocked at how easy it was to build and use this organizer. The instructions that come with it were very clear and easy. I have my box set up kind of simple. I put the original game in one section, then I put the Paint the Town Red, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Fear Itself in another. The next section I put in all of Dark City, and finally, the last section was Secret Wars. I used the sponges from DC and SW to take up negative space, and I used the blank stock cards and some blank cards that I found in SW to divide the games into sections (Heroes, Villians, Masterminds, Bystanders, S.H.I.E.L.D. Members, Wounds, etc.). The only thing that doesn't fit into the box is the Villians version, but that's a whole other game in itself. In the center of the box I put a sponge, then tokens that were in the Guardians expansion and then another sponge to hold them in place. Honestly, if I do end up buying the FF expansion then I still have room for it next to the other mini expansions. None of my cards are sleeved, but I could see how sleeves would help divide and organize this further. I just don't know if it would all fit in the box with sleeves. I'll make an updated review if I end up buying either the FF expansion or the sleeves. Until then, EXCELSIOR!
... that is used to make these dividers is a pretty thin piece of plywood

The board that is used to make these dividers is a pretty thin piece of plywood, which is to be expected I suppose, but the wood felt like it was going to snap while I was pushing the pieces together. With it all put together, in the box it works pretty well, but I am not likely to buy another Broken Token organizer. In addition to the thin wood feeling like it will break, one of the tabs was broken when I received it and after contacting Broken Token, they refused to send out an extra single piece. Instead I was instructed to return the entire package, a lot of hassle for that could be avoided if they would just mail out the one piece of wood I need.
