I think most avid LOTR-LCG players/collectors have come to the point where they wonder how to store and transport 4000+ sleeved cards.
Until now, i put everything into my 2 base game boxes. But that only had space for around 3000 cards.
I like to use the game boxes as much as possible for storage, so i had an idea about making them into a higher box.
This is what i ended up with.
Side. The weight is currently 12,4 kg (!). So i needed some strong handles. A plain 10 mm rope glued all around the bottom and the sides, and reinforced to prevent ripping off, works really nicely.
First i wanted to make a classic lid, that slides just over the box. Then i thought, why not use the whole game box as a lid that just slides into the box.
Top lid insides has a compartment for all the rule books.
For card and bits storage i use various boxes i found here on BGG.
The space in the middle is perfect for storing the playmat
By alternating the boxes everything stays where it is.
Once i am done sorting everything, i should have space for maybe another 2000 cards. Should last a while

There's a kickstarter running right now with custom based boxes for board and card games. In their most recent update, they shown a custom box for the LotR LCG that can fit 5k+ sleeved cards. Here's a picture:
And here's the link to the kickstarter if someone is interested. I think the cost is 19 pounds with 1 extra if you want dividers.

Organizing this game is tough. Spent a couple of hours just sorting and labeling the card sets.
The dividers are just a placeholder. I keep the expansions separate until i can play them in order and add the cards to my deck pool as they come.
