I use covered metal sheet cake pans. I like them because I can sort my figures out by genre/game and even though they are covered to keep out dust, you can easily look in to see which figs are in which. I use them for 1-4 figure stands.
Of course, you have to attach a magnetic sheet to the bottom your stands, but that helps them slide across a felt tabletop. I have several pans with a raised lid giving me more than 3″ of clearance.
Here is a pan with “Jungle Crawl” figures in it:
Then I made several carry racks that hold five pans each. I never need more than two when transporting figs. A bungie keeps them from sliding out:
