I use a full sized front-loading file cabinet with hanging folders. I have quite a few booklets though. The folders are sorted by theme.

Re: Greenpeace launches LEGO Campaign

Technically, it's when the contract expires that they will not sign a new one. That long term contract could have been for several years. We don't know the terms.

Re: LEGO CUUSOO Ghostbusters Set

These are all standard pieces. Don't think they would mold a specific Slimer just for one set. They could have tried a brick build though.

I've seen photos for 5 sets that look legit, but aren't quite as clean as I would expect from something like where Star Wars sets are now.
