I have been fortunate enough to have my stuff mostly in a controlled, dry, cool basement through most of my years.  The stuff I had I had in more "exposed areas" like a garage has mostly survived, but I have noticed warping on some of my older POTF2 stuff that was exposed to extreme temps. 

Do you have any opportunity to move your other storage out into the garage?  I have to think that ornaments and cake pans and crap can weather the garage environment better than your toys.  Maybe build up some cool, easy access shelving in the garage to get your wife on board with it, then you have more space to work your toys or other stuff into.

What is considered to be the critical temperature threshold? I have all my stuff in a finished attic space, and we have air vents in there but it cools poorly and on 99 degree+ day it is usually pretty warm, low 80's I would estimate. I am very concerned about this lately, not sure how to mitigate the impact though.

Slice you open like a tauntaun, faster than the Autobahn,
Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

I don't know if anyone's ever identified measures to go with this.  Generally I think the cooler, dryer, and darker the better.

Right now my collection of 30 or so POTF2 carded figures are in star cases in a tote inside the house... I'll display them at some point... keeping them out of the sun is my biggest priority in the house.
