    Protective Plastic Cases / Clamshells for MOTUC

    I wish mattel decide to make (or to license) motu plastic cases to store our MIB figures, like the cases done for star wars figures.
    I'd like, better I wish, that even a case for 200x motu would be available...what do You think about it?

    I think a lot of people would like that. The new MOTUC figures seem like they'd be difficult to find a case for based on what's available now.

    I personally wouldn't care for them, as I'll be ripping my MOTUC open (carefully!), but I support their creation for any who could use them. Good idea.

    If the line sells well enough I'm sure the cases wont be far behind.

    Me too except that I would prefer these stands to look different from those for DC.

    And about the cases, I don't see the use

    Its kinda lame, but I made my own from plexiglass I got at Home Depot. Customized it with iamges and a mirrored base. I know, I have way too much time on my hands.

    But yeah, some bases would be cool.

    a case for the MOC collector would be cool. I'm 50/50 on whether to open the MOTUC figs or not? Time and space will tell...

    We need an official MOTUC collector case for our loose figures!

    How cool would an 80's style collector case be?

    Mattel could easily make one using the green rock motif from the cards, and add the character artwork from their magazine print ads for the various figures. A simple vinyl covered cardboard like the old ones would be cheap to produce.

    Each case could hold 8-12 figures in plastic trays, just like the old ones, and they could include a label sheet with all the characters names.

    I would definitely buy as many as it took to store the entire collection.

    Who else wants one?

    Another idea I`m not a fan of. This is an Adult Collectors line, therefore the need for a carrying case is not there, unless you plan on packing your figures around with you to trade with your friends. I`m 32, when I open them they go on the shelf they stay there, I`m sure most others agree that a carrying case is not needed for this line, it`s not an 80`s re hash! We don`t need everything that the 80`s line had (no offense).

    If it's a MotU product, I'll buy that one. But I don't need any more.

    Well, it would give those who open them an alternative way to store and display them. I think it's a great idea.

    I'm not sure what age has to do with it either, since I'm 36... If you don't like the idea, you don't have to buy one.

    No offense.

    How about a clamshell collector case inspired by the classic Castle Grayskull? Of course it wouldn’t be as deep as the original castle, but from the front and back it could look just like the castle.

    This way, we have something awesome to put on our shelves to display figures around. For those up us whose shelves aren’t that deep, a thinner Grayskull collector case might fit better than a thick full sized play set. And when we travel, we can pack them all up inside.
