You are indeed the champ so far. I am #2 at 70. At least bricks coming through me.

I bought a hundred. They are the bomb. I agree that being slightly undersized is not an issue.

The Japanese Foam Blocks are 50mm x 100mm x 200mm or
1.31/32" x 3.15/16" x 7.7/8" when converted to inches, so close to 2"x 4" x 8" .
They are better sized for the resin lines and KS-1,KS-2, KS-5 and KS-6 than they are for KS-3 and KS-4. The City and Castles are true 2" sizing (But then nothing is exact). If you are on the West Coast of US, I might take the other quantity you might not want.

Hers are a link to view some in use. Slide down a half dozen or more pictures.

Good Luck. ;)
I would think that being a tiny bit undersize would actually be a good thing for a setup, since you can be sure that your actual DF parts will cover the whole block and not have to overhang much at all. If they were perfectly true 2x4x8 inches, then the older sets would have a small gap between stuff on a block and adjoining pieces.

Wow those look really nice - and useful! If someone has 10 and the others in front of me are not interested, I'd buy them. As I don't think they can be ordered in US directly? Cant seem to find them anyways.

Missed the link, sorry. Great pics, looks perfect. I just don't see needing 25 and 10 or so might not be worth it for Dice to ship.
