The later items, mainly the last three waves lost the force files.  Most people seem to regard these as  a transition towards the SAGA line.  

The force files seemed to get a not so great reception.  The consensus among most collectors seemed to be "give us more accessories, not more paper".

yeah, i can definately agree with more accessories, less paper. The only problem is they didn't include anything more in the figures that lacked the force files. Oh well.

Well, what Hasbro was trying to do with the force files was to add some value to the overall figure.  Before that, the value-added item had been the Commtech chip.  In fact, there's a litany of little value added things that Hasbro has tried.

But I think the overiding issue that you can find with those last three waves of POTJ is this:  they were probably THE BEST figures that were done in the entire line.  To me, that makes up for the absence of the force files.

I store mine in baseball card storage sheets.  They're a clear plastic, and can be put in a binder.  You can fit 12 or 16 on each sheet.

They're the exact size of business cards, so Business Card Holders are something I'd head of and I decided to store mine that way.

I love the Force Files.  I wish this is something that we saw even today, but not at the expense of the figure's overall quality.  They were some of my favorites though, and they make a unique thing to have a complete set of too.

I even want to make a couple custom ones some day for the final figures released who didn't get a FF.

Those are all great ideas!  I never would have even though about hanging my Force Files anywhere, but I think I'll have to look into that possibility.

There is no where in the house to hang them Chris!   :P
You can also do a sophisticated collage type thingy too for these.

I have mine in sports card pages already, but was wondering if anyone had any different ways to display them unfolded, if there is any way to make them look decent when they are unfolded.

You could probably put them on the wall with tacs.  Or, possibly in some kind of picture frame.
