    So I'm not a MISB collector. Neither do I keep my toys MIB. I display them all out of the packaging. Though because I'm a completionist I can't just throw out the boxes so I store them in my parents attic!

    I do my best to keep the cardboard and toy somewhat displayed / stored at the same time.

    Couldn't help but notice how all of your hanging shirts are arranged by color (light to dark). That's sick, just sick. Reminds me of a friend of mine from college. Very tidy, though. I tend to arrange my clothing from clean to dirty to floor. Nice display pics, BTW.

    And on topic, I tend to keep things sealed, so I have stacks of boxes with the toys actually in them.

    I usually don't keep boxes for the domestic released stuff, but I do keep the backing cards for blister bubbled packed toys.

    All of my JPN & UK stuff is all displayed on shelves that line the wall in my office. Most of the packaging is just too beautiful to keep hidden in a closet or to be thrown out. I open most of my items (eHobby items usually stay sealed) so sometimes I'll display the item out of it's packaging, but w/ the packing still prominently displayed...behind the toy usually.

    I'm in the middle of moving to a much larger house so I'm thrilled at the idea of having more wall space to put up more shelves. My wife always gets on me b/c I have more than I could ever display at one time. At least this larger room will afford me more space.

    ?!?! Whoa! Dude, just do what I do and cut off all the irrelevant crap on the boxes and fold them along the creases for easy storage. All my recent Cybertron (and other assorted odds and end) carboard fits nicely inside Cyb Supreme Starscream's box. The only boxes I ever want to keep intact are G1. The rest? Bah!

    Yeah, I discard the bubbles and just keep the cards - the cards fit nicely in the larger boxes (Unicron, Primus, etc).

    I did that for a couple years, then realized I soon wouldn't have a home. Now, if it gets opened, I save card-backs from carded TFs, save pertinent stuff cut-out from boxed TFS, save boxes only from toys that need to go back in the box when not being played with (Yamato VF-1s mostly) and smash and trash everything else. A couple small boxes with cards and instructions is much better than a whole room full of empty packaging.

    I throw away all the plastic bubbles. And on american packaging I now only save the character art and bios, and cut out and throw away the rest.

    What you can't see are a mass of Micromaster DX and WST boxes behind the two Titanium boxes. I used to keep them on top of my shelves until I needed the space, now they're packed away with the Russian Nesting Doll technique to save room. Those picutres are my entire closet these days. The only ones I really display anymore are my Alternator boxes over my Prime shelf (see collection link in sig)
