    So I was just wondering, do any of you save your cards and casings for the deluxe figures. I am debating between keeping them or throwing them away.

    I may just keep the cards.

    I've opened only a few of my toys so far, and yes, I keep everything from card, bubble, twist ties and accessories. I've got the space until I start collecting other figures. I feel this is a good way to throw the toy back in if I decided not display them anymore. Classics Mirage is the only figure where I won't have his original home since I bought him used. Got the card but no bubble.

    I kept Skullgrin's because his bio cars was awesome. Everything else goes to the garbage.

    I toss everything because of space except from the figure :p 

    I would only keep packaging if it was something like a masterpiece figure

    I keep the cards, but chunk the bubbles. But for boxed items, it depends on the figure whether or not I keep the packaging.

    I don't intend to sell mine, but I keep the card and the bubble intact for storgae purposes. This came in super handy when I moved. I placed every figure back in there bubble and they fit in a box very nicely. I may also be putting some back soon to make more space for new figures. If I ever want to, I can display them in package as well.

    Scout, Legends, Deluxe, I take the card, instuction manual, and toss the bubble.
    Voyagers, Leaders, Ultras, I take the Instructions out, and keep the boxes stacked up.
    The Instructions, go into a bin I have on my shelf.

    I only keep packaging for the higher end stuff. In terms of Deluxes I throw all packaging out unless I really like the art on the card, in that case I keep the card. For example I kept some of the TFA Deluxe cards and inserts for the artwork. Otherwise I have enough trouble finding space for all the actual figures let alone their packaging as well.

    I usually keep my favorite character from each wave/sub-line's card.

    I keep the cards, toss the bubbles. For larger boxed toys I flatten the box down and chuck the inner bubble out. I'll try and keep one example of the thicker cardboard box inserts from each line. For reissues, Japanese TFs, etc, I usually keep everything.

    I don't have all that many, and I have a lot of space, so I can afford to keep the cards.
    I have glass plate things on my desk, so I slip some of the better looking cards under them, and it can look pretty nice.

    Yes and Yes. On all of the recent RTS/Generations especially. We're right in the middle of a golden age of a badass "classics" bombardment! Lucky for us we have another craptacular Michael Bay movie to warm up those shelves!

    I keep the cards but toss the bubbles, and for voyagers I just cut out the back and/or side depending on the line. I keep them for the purpose of remembering which missiles go with which guy, but I started this during ROTF, so all my pre-ROTF stuff is lacking its packaging. Except for TFTM Premium Megs. Dunno why, but I loved that box for some reason.
