There are some cons of such a big box - no doubt it will be heavy and may fall apart due to its weight.

What about 2 boxes?

GAME BOX - contains the bits you need to play

ADMIN BOX - contains the other things that are generally only needed between sessions rather than during sessions. E.g. currently unused characters, the whole shop, personal goals not in use, envelopes, etc etc.

The advanced is that when you play the game it will be easier to just use the game box... and the admin box only really needs to be managed by the one person in the group who owns the game (probably).

I like the idea, but I'd guess that it isn't financially viable.

If the cardboard of the box is stury enough, it'll hold fine, I guess.

That would be nice, though I'm sure it would be more expensive to produce. Heck, it may likely be a bit more expensive than originally anticipated.

To me it's not so much a question of sturdiness, rather it's a question of ease of organizing the components in their box. I think that wider is better than deeper in relation to organization.

I love the idea of "(in)boxing" the box. Everyone films unboxing so this cuold be another unique thing. Otherwise it would be 2 games in one - RPG and 3D puzzle.

The box does look amazing.

For weight, portability and ease of access, I'll likely store the components as the OP suggests.

Will it be possible to store the contents back into the box after sleeving the cards?

There's some discussion of this elsewhere on the forum. IIRC, if you sleeve every one of the cards, you won't be able to get them back in the box, but many of the cards will be shuffled never or rarely. You should be able to sleeve the character ability cards and the encounter cards, which are the decks that require regular handling and shuffling.
