Storing Loose Figures

Postby digktialx » Sat Jan 31, 2015 2:54 pm

Hey, I'm new here. I just wanted to inquire about how people are storing their loose figures when they're not on display.

Thank you,

I've always wondered that myself. I'm not experienced enough in collecting to know but I'm sure someone here knows. Good question.

If I could do it over again I'd put all the figures and their accessories in individual bags. Having not done that, I keep all of mine in small plastic tubs, so I can seperate them into sub-genres.

Yeah, I would agree that individual baggies are the way to go.

The bags have to be polypropylene bags from what I've found out. The standard ziplock bags seem to be acidic in nature so the plastic can degrade. The reason I ask is I've got a project up on Kickstarter that I think would be of interest to those of us that want an alternate option for figure storage. I wanted to be sure it was ok to post the link here and see what everyone thinks.

Thank you,

Thanks, I'll also be sure to post in that Kickstarter forum as well. I'm familiar with some of those projects. Our project is a bit different since we're not doing figures but rather premium foam trays for storing loose figures. We wanted to help collectors store, organize, protect....and for the gents who are married, compress your mammoth action figure collections.

We're always looking for more support!

Thank you,

I keep my latest virtual 3 3/4 inch figures in a tiny matchbox...
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Hey, just dropping in with another update. We've done up some shots of our sample trays. The picture shows both Vintage and Modern Star Wars figures resting comfortably in their new homes. Even though time is ticking down on our  Kickstarter, we are more committed than ever to go forward with our storage trays and carry cases. Especially from what we have learned about existing storage methods.  Check us out…and please pledge…it’s never too late!

Good to see you guys are going to give this another round. I think you've really thought this out well, just need to continue to increase awareness and hit that niche.
