I considered posting this back in April 2011 after I joined the forum, but didn't do it. Now that my collection has increased substantially, I figured I would put this out there...
Over the years, my kids and I have tried to consolidate our Lego sets into the smallest space possible. My preference is to place as many sets (in their original boxes) into larger cardboard storage boxes to provide some protection. I then stack the cardboard storage boxes up (think of the final scene of the first Indiana Jones movie), alternating directions so that it minimizes the possibility of the storage boxes collapsing on themselves. Each storage box is numbered and the sets within each storage box are cataloged using an Excel spreadsheet.
Anyway...I always seem to have extra room in the cardboard storage boxes, which annoys me because of the useful space being wasted. It would be great to have Lego set box dimensions provided along with the other useful information Brickset provides for individual sets. This would provide a couple benefits including: 1) the ability to perform a simple calculation to determine the most efficient way to pack multiple sets into larger storage boxes, and 2) an idea on shipping box sizes for individual sets (without the hassle of digging them out).
Is this something that TLG has posted somewhere or is this something that has to be developed in-house as they say?
