Storage options for Loose Figures
« on: January 28, 2015, 12:27:11 AM »
Greetings. I was interested in how you guys store your toys when they're not on display. I'm inquiring about the action figures specifically.

-Thanks!

Most people use storage tubs or the three drawer plastic storage units you see at Wal-Mart for $9.99.  I used boxes, but the figures are carded.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

The reason I ask is that a buddy and I think we have a concept for trays designed specifically for the storage of action figures. I have tried a lot of different storage options and I felt there was always something missing. Please see our Kickstarter page if you were longing for something more:

I hope its ok if we post this link to help get people thinking about storage.

Thank you,

Hey guys just added another tray option on kick to allow people to get their feet wet at a lower price point. It'll allow you to get just a taste of what we're offering without the full platter or dessert! Please see the attached image for more.

Hey, just dropping in with another update. We've done up some shots of our sample trays. The pictures shows both Vintage and Modern Star Wars figures resting comfortably in their new homes. We've even added in Indiana Jones and G.I. Joe figures to the other trays. Even though time is ticking down on our  Kickstarter, we are more committed than ever to go forward with our storage trays and carry cases. Especially from what we have learned about existing storage methods.  Check us out…and please pledge…it’s never too late!
