    Lets say like with something that has extra pairs of hands like a Figma or Medicom or an extra head/face, where would you put these to keep them safe?

    Would you leave them in their box or perhaps maybe a plastic bag shelved away somewhere safe?

    This is just a general question to those who collect figures which have accessories which can not be displayed on the main figure due to nowhere to put them.

    Personally, I just leave them in their box unless they're small like Figma where I put them in a plastic bag and put them in a drawer to keep them safe.

    How about you?

    It's a combo of both, I put each character's accessories in their own ZipLock baggie, and then put all the baggies in a plastic container.

    Well, with my Sideshow and single Figuart stuff, I kept them in box. If they can be incorporated into a display, they go on display. If they don't come in a nice box, into a bin.

    Yeah, this is what I'm used to do with my loose toys.

    However, in the past few months I've stop adopting the above practice and simply put back figures back into their respective boxes. Reason being I had a couple of my ziplock bags breaking and some the contents fell onto my floor and went missing! X)

    Thankfully there were some old toys which I can do without. I would advise anyone using this method to get better quality Ziolock bags.

    I keep all my accessories and extra bits in (semi) organized bins, buckets, drawers, baggies and so forth. Much easier access then keeping them in the toy's original packaging, especially with stuff that has large boxes but small accessories. I always found it to be *highly* annoying to have to keep a massive box easily accessible because the figure had an extra hand or two floating around. A couple of those cheap plastic storage drawer things you can find at any store, ranging from super tiny to massively large, just works so much better when keeping all those fiddly bits organized, in good condition and easily reachable when I want to change up my displays.

    I have that system for my Saint Seiya Cloth Myth accessories (and there are a lot) and Macross parts.
