Boxes: to keep or not to keep?

Boxes: to keep or not to keep?
06 Mar 2010 23:07:14

How do you deal with figurines boxes, guys?

As to me, I don't have that many figurines, so I used to keep the boxes stacked in a corner of the corridor. Today I forced myself to do some cleaning and decided to get rid of them, cause they were confusing my guests and so on. But then I started to think about the future. I suppose I'll have to change my dwelling at least ones. So, I didn't dare to throw out the boxes and got rid of other 'precious' things in order to clear out some space on the balcony.





Yeaaah, dodgy view, I agree.
I'm jealous of folks who live in hot countries and can use their balconies for sun-bathes, not as 'warehouse'.

Yeah, I just throw out all of my boxes. Especially since most of my figures were bought while I lived in a small military dorm room. XP

I tend to keep all of mine stacked in the closet, I don't throw them away in case I need to move.

I keep all of my boxes. I'm totally paranoid about keeping them I even have a closet dedicated for them!
Here's my main stack of boxes.
And my figma boxes.

Wow! I envy you, and hope someday I'll have something like this too.
I think boxes are collectors issues also, so they are worth keeping. Not to mention that someday you may want to sell them. Things happen^__^

Wow! Nice closet. Mine is loaded with other stuff, mostly hard-ware.
The second thought that came to my wind was: when it is full, Mu won't buy figurines anymore... XD

I keep all packaging from my figures. I don't have too many, so I just keep them in the bottom drawer of my dresser. If I ever buy too many figures to fit in there (and move to a bigger place), I'll probably just stack them into a convenient table and throw a sheet over it...Or I'll just throw out everything in my closet and keep them there.
Boxes are very important for resale. I:
Oh Japan, why you gotta make everything so darn expensive? ; n;

Sooo, it's a great problem you pointed out here.
I've got a small room, but I want my figures to be as mint as possible, so I try not to get rid of the boxes.
I mean it, I try, not always successfully. I really envy of mu-san to have space to arrenge a special closet. I hope someday I'll have something like this too.
There are 2 reasons for me to keep boxes. First reason - I may want to sell part of my collection on a rainy day; second reason - I think a box is a collectors issue too.

I alvays keep scaled figures and nendos boxes (thanks god I don't have many). About figma boxes - some I keep, and some I flatten: I get rid of the inside plastic, and flatten the cardboard, then keep it in a plastic bag all together. Sort of a compromise.

Btw, did you give up the idea to sell some of your nendoroids? We were talking about it last week...

I've finally got my salary^___^ it was a present from our boss to women of our company near the 8th of March^___^ I'm not joking. We're going through hard times now, so we're paid irregularly^^

So I'll think twice. But its likely that I will sell some, cause they don't make me as happy as scaled figures and figmas^__^

For me, to sell is not a problem at all.
I didn't think about figma Miku, KagaMiku and Miyuri after I sold them. No regrets^__^

Thank you for a new kanji in my bank: 売

I keep. But I have only 3 as of now, so it's not really a bother.
