I tell the kids that we send them to a farm for old ****** figures...  I tell them they're happier there.  It's the same farm where all the Fleet Troopers have been.

Most of my older figures remain in crates with the vast majority of my loose collection. I still like them, so they'll be displayed again eventually.

DoctorPadawan,

I might suggest that you contact either a local children's hospital or get in contact with Make a Wish Foundation in your area. I know my son and I gave a fair amount of figures to a kid going through cancer treatments about a year ago or so, and all Iwe had to do was drop them off. We got a thank you note from the kid which was really cool. I also had my son go through and pick the figures since my collection is really his collection. 

As far as what I am doing . . . most of the collection is in bags and I have turned it over to my 13 year old son. He is getting into customizing so it is getting far more use than just sittting in a bin. I have some of my favorite figures on a book shelf in my office and that is where they are.
