Saving boxes

I only really save my MP, Takara Generations, Titan Class, and some "special release" boxes like Siege on Cybertron, Punch/Counter-Punch etc.. I'd been saving those Generations Selects cardboard ones and now I'm on the fence about tossing them since there are so many now and they're not really "pretty".

Anyone wanna convince me to go either way?

Re: Saving boxes

Still save everything, except maybe for doubles

Have a plan for proper storage, need to invest in more Detolfs

Re: Saving boxes

Neither choice works. Both are the two extremes and while trying to be "cute", they aren't very proper.

I keep some, for the more expensive/fancy ones.

The other ones I keep some, but also take some apart to keep the art and backing. But for those I toss the plastic holder.

If I had kept them all, I'd probably have a room filled completely with empty boxes.

And the resale value doesn't matters either as I buy to collect and not to resell.

Re: Saving boxes

I usually keep boxes for figures that came in boxes, since I like the artwork and it makes them convenient to store. I do discard the inserts and flatten out boxes for Titan class figures though.

Re: Saving boxes

I flatten and store boxes I like for artwork, but get rid of inserts. I have no space to store full sized boxes.

Re: Saving boxes

I had all the combiner wars boxes and other nice sets until recently, now I just save studio series, unopened transformers , and toss the rest. They take up too much space and I don't have intensions of selling.

Re: Saving boxes

I used to take all my bots out of box but my collection has shifted to a mostly MISB or MOSC display. I find they just look better in the package & I don't plan on selling any in the near future so I'm not concerned with resell value. I don't play with them or pose them anymore cuz I can't pose to save my life. I do make exceptions for certain figures tho like the gestalts or Titan figures.

Re: Saving boxes

Only 3P, MP, some G1ís, some Japanese releases, and recently Generations Select brown boxes. Card backs are definitely trashed, so for most boxes.
