    Yes, it's one of those show/tell threads.

    This is no doubt a problem any toy collector would face, no matter how big the collection; where to store all those little parts that don't have any place on the toy on display? Some toylines like Revoltech and Soul of Chogokins at least try to alleviate the issue by providing small containers in case of the former and display stands in case of the latter, but obviously this is not always enough.

    I've bought several of those extra Revoltech containers for my older Revs that didn't come with them as well as some of the SoCs that had no place to put some of the accessories (like Mazinger's extra rockets), but when you have accessories far bigger than what you can fit in a 2.5"^2 plastic box, you obviously have a problem.

    I just have most of mine lying around in some bookshelf drawers in those white plastic baskets (not a dignified solution, I know); what do the rest of you use? Have you bought some little crates for trinkets from gift shops, or perhaps you've gone the DIY route and built something special for them yourself?

    I just put mine in zip lock bags and put them in carton boxes.

    It depends on the toy like for Gundam kits I use plastic bags, and for figuarts I keep the accessories I'm not using in the box

    I put them all in a plastic cabinet. I should probably separate them by labeled zip locks though. Gonna be a pain to sort the accessories later.

    I keep my gundam boxes and keep all the stuff for each gundam in their respective box. As for transformer stuff, pretty much everything goes in my Leader Ironhide box since I know who has what.

    If I'm keeping the package, they'll probably never leave the package.

    If I'm not keeping the package, then they'll be stored in zip lock bags.
