    Hey all got a problem I have about 20 or so boxes from revenge of the fallen, universe, animated and plenty of card backs they do take up alot of space was wanting to know if you all would keep packaging or just throw it away. Thanks for the input.

    Pitch it. The only thing I keep is instructions & inserts. I used to keep card backs if they had tech specs. Not so much anymore.

    I flatten boxes and dispose of the inserts, unless it's G1 or Japanese.

    Yeah flatten or toss them. I had a ton of sealed figures from the first movie line but eventually it was too much space wasted so out they went. Not all but a majority.
    That also includes Animated and Universe. I still have a lot of boxes but it would be impossible to keep everything.

    I keep all my boxes for my TFs. It is getting kinda cluttered in my closet, but it will continue to do so!

    I keep the instructions and the card back. If it's a voyager box I cut the back off. A stack of those doesn't take up too much room.

    The only full box I've kept are from my one import and one masterpiece.

    I'll definitely have to throw away blisters/bubbles for TF3, though. I'll just keep the cards.

    You can try selling them, but only empty G1 boxes go for any real amount of money.

    I would dispose of the packaging inserts and keep the card backs and flattened boxes.

    I keep the boxes for my Masterpieces, Kissplay, G1 reissues and those spiffy black Universe boxes for Dragstip and Overkill. But for most toys I cut out the techspec and the biography and throw away the rest of the box.

    i used to... i had every box from late BW to current, but finally tossed most of it last year when i moved... it was taking up more space then my toys, and spread across 3 different locations... and it doesn't really help resale value that much if i do decide to sell something... I keep instructions, because i've found if i sell something loose at my LCS it moves much quicker if it has them then if it doesnt... i do keep g1 and japanese boxes, and a few other rare cases, like alternators and TFCC toys... and everything from botcon gets kept, plastic baggies and all...

    I keep them for character art, not for resale. In my Junkion experience of selling opened toys, most don't care if the card or box is there.

    For Revenge of the Fallen, Universe, and Animated I didn't keep any of the boxes or cardbacks. If you do decide to dispose of yours as well, remember at least all the cardboard is recycleable. Some areas like mine also take the plastic as long as it is seperated from the cardboard.

    I keep the back usually, unless it's a special box, then I'll keep it.
