Boxes, to keep or not?

I've found the A-Line system for under $100 (1stPlaceHobbies.com) for the short case set with tote. How does this compare with the price of a set of the Axian Car Cases? I haven't located where to buy these yet so as to have a comparison. I'm leaning toward the A-Line due to the upright storage but since I already have one Car Case, if the price differential was adequate I might be pursuaded to go with that system instead. I did check ou the web site of the one other system that was mentiuoned but their HO site is still under construction and there was no indication of price or much on specifications or features so at this time they are on the bottom of the list.

Jeff,
Based on the MSRP as recommended by Axian, the "whole enchilada" runs about $125: five cases at $18.95 each, plus around $30 for the tote bag. (Granted, various places may discount, so it's better in some cases to go by the list price.)

So assuming Walthers would be list price for the A-Line system it sounds as if they might be less expensive. Coupled with my preference for the upright as opposed to on-side storage it looks like A-Line is the one for me. Now all I have to do is decide on the box issue, which I'm leaning toward the 'toss them' since some of the cars won't fit back in their form-fit boxes after adding couplers and details.

Can anybody suggest some known sources for the Axian tote cases and bag? I just got my first A-Line set and really like it but am thinking that since I need more than one case I might just as well get some more of the Axian ones and a bag to go with the single case I already have. Besides, the spare divider foam that comes with the Axian case makes a perfect divider foam for the A-Line case.
