I usually just toss a game's insert and baggie up the components, but given the amount of cardboard that comes with Android I'm leaning towards using a Plano box for shared components. (I'll likely still bag the individual character components.)

What's the best model number to get?

PM as a reminder when I get home. I went the Plano route on this one and had a perfect box if I recall.

I was just going to grab my copy of Android anyway (I have to add the Event cards from the books, which I just received in the mail). Looks like the one I use is 2-3650. Here is one with the sticker still on (obviously not Android pieces inside, though).

And this is how I store Android:

Thanks for the box recommendation. I actually may have one of these sitting around; I'll have to go check.

I used the 3650. It has an extra large compartment on the right hand side that allowed me to store the ship markers and the smaller hints sheet.

I used my tuck boxes for the cards.

Thanks! That's two votes for the 3650, so I'll definitely be checking that one out.

Sorry can't be of any help since it's probably cheap chinese knockoff sold here in Indonesia.

Just got the game and a 2-3650 for it, and set it up using this nice guide. Removing the box insert and putting the ship and 1st player markers in one zip bag, plus each character's tokens in seperate bags means you can store everything in the game box perfectly, and probably better with sleeved cards. My only gripe is the 2-3650 came with badly warped dividers. Is there a way to reshape them?

I've heard that Plano will give you a reasonable quantity of free inserts for personal use if you ask them, so that might be worth exploring. You could also try an old trick for plastic miniatures: hot water to make them malleable, bend to suit, cold water to set.

The hot water trick seems to work fairly well. I'm not sure if they'll remain straighter but it's better than chits sliding under the wonky inserts.

One weird thing about the 3650 is that it comes with one extra insert, but it's too short to use in any of the compartments. Why not just make it 1/4" longer so it's usable in the box it's in? Mysteries...
