This is what I've been thinking of doing soon as my space runs out. I save most of the bubble wrap I get my figures in (I buy everything online so I have tons of the stuff). I just need to get some of those Rubbermaid storage bins.
I save most of the boxes for my TFs but usually don't save the inserts unless it's something 'special' like an exclusive (eHobby/Botcon etc.) so I'll likely flatten the rest out to make more space. It's astounding just how much space a collection can occupy.
The hard decision will be which TFs I want to store and which ones I want to keep on display. MPs and Beast Wars are staying on the shelves, Movie toys and some classics will probably go into bins. I haven't decided whether to keep my G1s on display or not, but at least some of them will be going into bins most likely.
My FP combiners are definitely staying on display along with my TFC combiners (and probably all the FoC Brutici I've accumulated as well
One thing I'll have to be careful with are the ones which I've painted. I used acrylics which easily scratch/peel, so I'll have to either leave them on display or very carefully bubble wrap them.
Thanks for bringing this up Mr_Wayne, it's something that I've been putting off for a long time and I'll have to deal with it real soon, so this brought it to my attention again. My next shipment from BBTS is going to be MASSIVE so I'll probably need to start doing this before I next ship my POL.
