Should be, it's about 90mm height per compartment.

I assume he meant height as in as if the minifigures were lying down Sounds okay to me.

Wrong. He said "it's about 90mm height per compartment". Per compartment. The compartment's are actually 35mm height. Got it now?

I took it to mean that it can accommodate a figure of up to 90mm tall when it is lying down. I don't think I'm wrong there?

Perfect. For all those screws I bought but never used

No you are not wrong, nice to see someone used common sense when I quoted you on lego mini figures, of course everyone can see the case dimensions on the website but that wasn't the question.

If you need proper dimensions I can go grab mine out the garage and measure a compartment but I did a rough guess.

I always take 'Shatterproof' as more of a challenge than a statement. Never found a shatterproof ruler yet!

​Actually dewonderful you are wrong. Clearly the compartments are rectangular. Here is a quote from a reviewer "The individual compartments measure 80 x 43 x 29mm"

Cheers OP bought 4 no brainer really decent enough for the small stuff.

No, I am right. It's just some people here don't know how to use english words correctly (and did they vote for brexit?) - the difference in meaning between "width" and "height". The "height" is 35mm (or actually 29mm according to your reviewer), which is what I said. So I am 100% right in what I said.

The product is designed to lay flat, so what some people are referring to as "height" is actually WIDTH. Given the overall WIDTH of the case is 195mm, then the WIDTH of each individual compartment is about 95mm. Or actually 80mm according to your reviewer.

Now that everyone is educated, here are some handy definitions, so you can use the right words from now on when you make stupid arguments on the internet with complete strangers:

width - the measurement or extent of something from side to side
height - the measurement of someone or something from head to foot or from base to top

I'd want the dimensions looking down on the tray from the top (as its really the only logical way to take them). which would mean the height of each compartment is 80mm, the width is 43mm and the DEPTH of each is 29mm.

So you're still wrong.

But some people are just able to understand the casual use of words and make it all work in their head. You're being a bit of an aggressive uptight numpty.

Try this out and see how better you feel
