Thread: How do you store your MOC?

  1. #1

    How do you store your MOC?

    My MOC collection is starting to grow and I don't have a place yet to display them so I need better storage. I just ordered a plastic comic book bin for now. Was thinking about a standard cardboard comic bin but was concerned that it could get crushed if it was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I like the idea of flipping through the figures like you would comics in the bin. How do you store yours?

    Many years ago my father in-law helped me build shelves in a closet. I put them all in acrylic cases and then on the shelves. Before that, I had them in Star cases tacked up on the wall.

    Wanted: Jawa sample proofs,a textured cape Leia, and any Boushh proofs. I'm also currently looking for a 21 ESB back Leia Organa proof. I have cash and many great trade items!

    That looks nice! Eventually I'd like a display like that.

    I keep mine in formaldehyde to preserve them for longevity. Prevents yellowing of the blisters. hahaha. J/K. The handful that I do have I display intermittently with my loose run of vintage figures. The others that I don't have space for are kept in a bin, sort of like you're talking about. I'd love to have them all out where I can see them, but it's also nice to grab a beer on a Saturday night and thumb through the bin. Sort of like Christmas whenever I want. hahaha

    What kind of bin do you use? I just picked up this bin hoping it does the trick https://www.bcwsupplies.com/short-comic-book-bin

    That's a nice bin for sure. I just use a basic storage bin and layer them so that they don't bend. More important than the actual bin is the temperature and humidity they are stored in.

    mine are just piled in a couple of big deep plastic tubs in the closet. i layer them much like wampa described but in the end potf2 seems to be worthless for the most part so it dosent matter much

    Be careful using plastic bins. I had all my figures stored in individual baggies stored in a plastic shoe box. All the air was trapped and my figures needed a soapy bath. I am now using baggies however, I'm not zipping them. I'm folding the tops and used tape to seal the baggie so air escapes. Also not closing the top of the plastic totes. Air is our friend.

    UV bad
    Air good

    ProTech Starcases, but mine are all high-quality recards. Except for my recarded Droids Boba Fett, that one is in an acrylic case that the seller was nice enough to provide. That one I treat especially well (grail figure).

    I've noticed that. Wonder how it will affect the graded figures trapped in the acrylic cases.
