Lately, I've found myself at crossroads; even if I sold over some duplicates and recolors, my collection was still growing to the point where storage space, or lack thereof, was becoming a rather big issue. Compared to many Toyark patrons, my collection isn't that big (more or less 750). Most of my stuff is in storage in a friend's unused room. That's all fine and dandy, but the fact remains that it's a temporary solution to a growing problem. Case in point, every collector I know that has 1000+ TFs systematically dispose of the packaging. I entertained the thought of that for a few weeks. Yesterday, I took action. Every North American Transformer I have got their bubbles cut and disposed of. Boxes were either flattened down or cut up just to keep the back. Japanese and reissue boxes remain intact for now. It's funny how I vowed to remain a MIB collector, but at the end of the day, it's the toys I enjoy, not the cardboard and the plastic covering them. I either had the choice to call it quits and keep my stuff boxed/carded until I moved in a bigger place (which won't happen for another year or two) or save space by flattening down boxes. In an odd way, I feel liberated by this contingency measure of sorts. I'll probably be able to get the rest of my stuff at my friend's place and do the same to those boxes and hopefully have every piece of my collection at home. Anyone else in the same boat as I?
