The thread about resource conversion got me thinking.
Lets say the Dev's have a good reason that they didn't/won't convert our unused resources into...whatever.
What if we could convert them into a Lockbox token. And it would take X amount (whatever the Dev's deem appropriate) of tokens to buy a box. My only twist would be that the vendor would sell all boxes, old and new. And maybe even the old grab bags?
You'd be able to buy a box you want. Sell it for globals or open it with a key.
