    I don't know if this was discussed before (if yes please remove.):

    I want to put my tf in dispaly.
    What is the best display method that would keep like 85%-100% of the dust off my Tf's toys ?
    A display case that is sealed to air ?

    little help here....

    Sealded sounds right, right now the only tf I've got on display is supreme Starscream yet he has very little dust on him...

    enclosed display case with swiffer pads taped to every shelf above the transformers.

    unless u seal it off completely there is no way to protect against dust. Now the dust % depends on diffrent factors like if u got nice ventilatioins so the appartment are nice and open so the air can circle around. if u have carpets ,bedwear or any other household that help produce dust particals.

    but yeah 100% dust free u have to seal them off.

    using the swiffer trick for years (you have to replace the pads once in a while) has kept my TFs 90% dust free, except armada thundercracker for some reason.

    I guess Armada Thundercracker sucks more than the swiffer pads. :D

    Hmm, I'm going to have to try that swiffer trick. I know everyone here has faced the never-ending and uphill battle against dust.

    Ba-zing!

    I leave the dust on mine. It adds character.

    Swiffer pads, huh? How does that actually work, static electricity? I've never owned a Swiffer. I'll have to try that on my non glass shelves.

    yep, static. most airborn dust will cling to the swiffer pad rather than settle on the transformer. of course, it won't get rid of dust thats already on the transformers.

    from swiffer's Q&A:
    soil, dust, whatever.
