I thought it would be interesting to see the average size of the collections our members have built of boxed figures, mine is now up to 49. Also let us know if you keep your boxes, my basement is slowly filling up with empty boxes and I am beginning to question the value in saving them.

I've got about 200+ on display, about 50 boxed in the closet (mostly duplicates of displays), a few rarer boxed Joes (Buzz Aldrin, Audie Murphy, some BBIs etc.). I've got 50+ loose figures stored in bags in a bin because lack of display area. I only keep a few empty boxes if they are cool looking (GI Joe HALO box because he's jumping out of a C-130). That's about it...

Hundreds upon Hundreds...been at this since 91 so...they start to pile up :D

I've been trashing all my boxes since the late 90's when I realized they were taking up
about 10x the space as the figures were. I also learned that most of the figures I owned were either valuable with or without the box, or worthless..with or without the box.

Besides..I buy these to open, mess with, and enjoy......if I sell anything it goes on ebay loose as-in and whatever money I don't make back I consider a "rental fee" :D

I have about 10 boxed Sideshow figs, those stupid boxes are works of art themselves, I can't bare to throw them out. Too many nudes and loose items to count, but less than 100. I don't think I want to own more than 100 figures, but we'll see what happens when I get to that point? That Kneejoint has me making vehicles now, so that will take up at least twice the space or more then figures do. Since I don't plan on having kids, maybe where the addition for the kids room would be, can now be the toy wing/museum/studio(?), since the bashes I do feel like my children anyway. Who says men can't give birth?
