Vintage Kenner / Re: Storing your Loose Figs

$55 to store 48 figures?  Sounds like a neat idea, but too expensive for me to consider...

+1  Cool look, but that price needs to be chopped in half, then chopped in half again.

That's a steal.  Basic figures are twice that price at my Target.

Seen both readily at TRU and don't go toy hunting much at all any longer.  Likewise Luke and the droid are easy to get as well.  The Doallyn dude is usually around half of the Ree Yees numbers though, to his credit.

I've only ever seen these twice in the wild - at two different TRUs.  Neither store had them for long.  They seemed to pop up a few places online as well - oh wait, I was thinking of NERDRAGETOYS where they thought they'd get cases full of them, then cancel on people with no notice.

That picture is hilarious Jeff.  I was shocked enough to remember the ad at least, but not all that motivated to switch my insurance based on it.  Great game overall.  I love that Carroll tried outsmarting Belichek when he had the game in the bag.  What a fitting end for the cockiest coach in NFL history.

I don't know who Ebay would side with, but I would imagine you could note the weight of the box as evidence that nothing was in there.  If he sent something else of approximately the same weight, then you'd have to try something else.  I guess as a buyer you could stoop to the sellers level and take a picture of something else in the box, claiming that's what you got.  Its totally dishonest, but in that case I don't see how Ebay could side with the seller.

Hi, I was wondering what methods folks have come up with for storing their figures.

Thank you,


I am using glass display cabinets.   ;)

It's only in park at the Star Trader. Also Disney just raised the price this week to one for $12.95. 3 for $19.95.

One for $13, but two additions are $3.50 each?  Weird.  Do they have a 3-pack package for that option?  I can't remember what the clam shells look like.

Oh, wow - the guy who has a huge financial interest in these movies succeeding assures us that it's "worth the wait"?  Whew!  I'm sure he'd totally tell us the truth if he thought they were terrible...   :P

+1  Would be hilarious to have him come out with "Well, the new Star Wars movies are just so-so."

Carded?  That is a great deal.  I think I paid close to that for the loose versions, and those were a deal at the time.  Nice score!

Justin, with no news of kubricks, it's hard to include those.

I don't have Kubes in my list, do I?  I would collect those if they ever made any more.   :P

Star Wars
Black Series 3 3/4" - All
Black Series 6" - All
Mission Series - All
Legends - Cherry Picking
Rebels 3 3/4" - All for now including the ships
Varioius Lego Sets
Vintage lots here and there
Episode 7 Figures...?

Legends - Avengers & Guardians figures
Marvel Infinite - Avengers figures
Minimates - Avengers figures
12" Figures - One or two when I see a sale or something really incredible

Hasbro/Takara - Official Masterpiece Figures (G1)
Third Party - Masterpiece Look & Feel (Warbotron's Bruticus & Fantstoys Dinobots among others)
KREO Minifigures - Most of the G1 based figures

Funko - a few figures here and there.  Probably stick with Aliens and Terminator
DC - I'll grab a 6" figure or two if they catch my eye

Funny, I would have said just a handfull of lines, but once I typed them all up there is more than I thought.  The limited releases from Star Wars and Marvel have redirected a lot of my funds and interest towards Masterpiece Transformers.  I've picked up a few Seekers and Alternators of the years, but after getting Quakewave (Not Soundwave) about a year ago, I'm all in on the MP Transformers figures.  Trying to build a solid collection of G1 figures - I have so far acquired a version of AUTOBOTS: Optimus, Blaster, Jetfire, Red Alert, Iron Hide, Rachet, Grimlock, Swoop, Wheelie, Bumblebee, Prowl, Smokescreen, Bluestreak, Wheeljack, Huffer, Eject, Ramhorn, & Brawn to fight DECEPTICONS: Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Ravage, Lazerbeak, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Buzzsaw, Shockwave, Acid Storm, Sunstorm, Brawl, Blast Off, & Swindle.  I have the rest of the Dinobots and Combaticons on pre-order, along with 3P versions of Megatron and Perceptor, but I'm fast approaching a full cast for these guys (I hope!). Still a few of the cars to be made (Sunstreaker, Jazz, Mirage, Tracks) and the Conehead Seekers I suppose.  Maybe a few more combiners as well.  Luckily these are hitting about one per month, so a little easier to stomach the $100-200 price tags. 

I have been tempted by some of the vintage Funco figures, Acid Rain, and even a variety of Legos, but I'm struggling to make space for my collection as it is.   :P

Vintage Palitoy carded Boba Fett fetches $27,000 at auction!

I have to admit, I don't think I ever saw a carded Boba Fett as a kid...we all got ours through the mail-a-way!

PLUS the guy had to pay the auction house 20% commission.  Wow indeed.

Feels like we've been seriously neglecting the underboob lately. 

It looks pretty long term. Disney doesn't do sales in the parks.

Do you mean this is only at the Downtown store vs. the store in the park?

UCS ? LEGOŽ Marvel Superheroes- The SHIELD Helicarrier 76042

Okay, that's cool.  I like the spinning turbines and the new landing strip pieces.  Not a big fan of mini build stuff in general, but then they had to go adding exclusive minifigs.  Ugh!
