    Often at toy shows, I see figures in little ziplock bags. Probably 2 inches wide by 5 inches high. Where do people find these? I haven't seen them in stores. They seem specifically made for figures. Anyone know?

    Search 'Action Figure ziploc bag' on ebay, and you should find one to two things. Seem to be 3 inches wide by 5 inches high though.

    A lot of dealers use jewelry or craft storage bags. These can be found in hobby stores like Hobby Lobby and Micheal's.

    It's not exactly the same, but I use Ziploc snack sized bags. I think they're the perfect size for 3 3/4" figures...

    This is why I love Max Factory dearly. They had the foresight to include bags in their Figma line.

    This. I saw a bunch at Michaels in the jewelry section the other day. I don't recall them being that expensive either.

    ^ This. Now if only they would also print the name of the character on the bags...

    They included a spot that was printed in a white, marker-friendly surface. They probably figured we know how to operate a Sharpie.

    I use normal Ziplock baggies. They work as fine, though they have a tendency to wrinkle over time.
