Note: This is mostly for those who have a medium-size collection. The move itself was across town, so most were driven to the new location by me. Experiences may vary.



Greetings, all! A few months ago, I embarked on moving from an apartment to a house. And with it, I had to pack up my collection. It had grown from when I moved cross-country, and after the incident involving my storage unit (seen in this article here: BLOG #25315), I invested in more plastic containers.

To show what I was working with:

My room was unique in that I had a second closet along with my main walk in. Perfect for storing figure boxes! Whenever people say to hold onto the boxes, I 100% agree. They keep the figures safe and reduces bubble wrap use.

For large/awkward-size figures, I say go with this size. You can fit at least seven comfortably without having to squeeze anyone in. It's the largest size from the Container Store and runs around $23 USD. Even my Dizzy ITEM #42026 and Jack-O' ITEM #464740 fit!

They have several other sizes available, and the smallest ones are great for artbooks and doujin. but honestly it's better to go with slightly cheaper boxes unless you want them super tightly sealed. I found this one at Target for like $13 and it fit quite a few figures. Drawbacks: not good for really large figure boxes and the seal isn't the best. Passable for in town moves and not long trips.

Now for art prints! I have accumulated several prints from various conventions and tournaments, and transporting them without tubes can be a pain. I invested in an art portfolio from a local art store, and they can fit a LOT of prints. There are several sizes and styles, so feel free to shop around and find the best one for you and your wallet.

Being into fighting games, the early days of my collecting came from trading figures. To solve the issue of tons of tiny pieces: ziploc bags. The standard sandwich bag size works wonders and keeps everyone and their accessories in one spot. From there they can be layered into a box, either cardboard or plastic. Ziplocs also help with items like can badges, straps, and other miscellaneous merchandise.

Time to pack! Hahahahaa... ha...

And success!

In total, I used around 5 big plastic containers and several smaller ones, maybe around 8-9. And after use, they can be stacked into one another and placed either in a closet or storage area.

I hope you enjoyed my little guide and if you have any questions, feel free to toss them my way! Thanks for reading,

Mama_Nana8 måneder siden#71021292Probably because Tinypic is starting their sweep of deleting and wanting money. Sorry about that :(
As for the portfolio, I got mine at a local art store. Most online art shops like Dick Blick or Michaels carry them in various sizes. It just depends on your size and budget.

It's very much like playing Tetris. Making sure everyone is nice and mildly snug without them being too tight. Keeps them steady and minimizes any breakage.
