    Their only use is if you sell the figures it's best to have the original box.

    Everything else is given away or recycled.

    MP boxes are used as stairs

    The only box I've kept is a Takara Tomy Animated Shockwave box.

    Just the more expensive stuff. Hasbro Voyagers and below I usually throw away.

    I really only keep the henkei boxes and encore/reissues, for all of the regular stuff (generations, animated, movie, etc.) the boxes get trashed, but i save the instructions and cardbacks (b/c they take up almost no room)

    I tried for a little while, but they made for a cluttered environment, unfortunately. That said, I ended up ditching quite a few. I still keep the boxes for the few Masterpiece, Reissues, and Busts that I get, but most of the time I just toss'em. Quite honestly, one doesn't need much more then the inserts from deluxe figures -- namely in the case of RoTF.

    I keep the boxes stacked away, the card backings in a folder, and the instructions in a bin.

    Yes, but I gut them and flatten them down for storage. All innards (cardboard & bubble) get trashed.

    I keep 100% of all my packaging in as mint condition as possible. I'll either be putting the figures back in their box/bubble for display/storage one day or I might need/want to seel them on. I'd rather keep my options open.

    Only for rare/expensive toys. Common toys I throw away, take up too much space and don't really add much extra value to the toy. If there is nice box-art I'll just cut it out.

    Binaltech, Masterpiece, alternity, Takara 2010 Primus and Unicron, the Universe 2.0 Special editions and the third party stuff I keep.

    For other stuff I keep the bio and stats for the figure if there are any and throw away the rest of the box.
