    I did, but after having a mailer box for every character and having the Zoloworld cases, I realized the boxes are pointless. They cannot fit in the box anyway with the Zoloworld case, so I was wasting way too much space I did not have for them and tossed out every one of the boxes that go to the regular figures. I am keeping the bigger sized ones like Battle Cat's, Orko's, Tytus', etc, but just those dudes, and that is only until some makes protective cases for those types.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I have the cases too, but I will put my figures back in the mailers, if I should ever have to move or just transport them because the mailers stack better and can be packed into a box more efficiently than the ZW cases, and I can open and stack the cases together and wrap them easier than trying to fit those big cases which are bigger due to the hang tabs into boxes as neatly or as many as in the mailers...plus like I said, I see them as part of the package.

    Yeah, but you still have to transport the ZW cases. You would be doing twice as much work for nothing to pack them up, add on top of taking every figure out of the case to put them into the mailer, move them, then put every figure back into the case, making it more trouble than they are worth. They might be easier to stack, but they still have to be boxed up and transported to whereever you move to.

    Yeah I do. Dunno why though. I have a large stack to the ceiling.

    It just seems like a good idea as I am more MOCer than loose. I only open my doubles as I prefer a MOC collection as an adult collector so having the white mailers would help me transport my collection when/if I need to.

    I'm already up to my neck in them. They would be great for mailing off items in too.

    I save most of them. I break them down and store them in the bigger mailer boxes. It sucks because 90% of my collection is in storage while I save my money to get a house to put them all in. No room where I'm at now.

    When I was doing my MOC collection I used the extra mailers to box the first few figs that didn't get them, adding my own labels to the side to know who was who (lol), and I saved 1 box for the backer cards for bios. The rest I recycle.

    Not a big deal to me to do this...I only have a small collection..and it's really not that big a deal for me, and twice as much work is worth it to ensure I can fit all I can fit into less boxes, and save trips, I can pack all my mailers into one big box, and the cases back into the box they came in..which I still have because I haven't even used all of them yet. Besides it's what I want to do..

    I flatten mine and throw them in an extra storage container.

    My MOTUC collection is MOC, and they were really convenient to have around when I moved over the summer. If/when I move again, I'll be glad I still have them.

    I recycle mine. The mailer boxes are great because I don't have to buy boxes to wrap the figures for my kids.

    I recycle everything but the cardbacks.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    just just threw a whole bunch of them away, i live in a small apartment and just didn't have room for them.. i read here in the thread that someone uses on of the boxes to keep their card backs in.. that's a pretty good idea.
    they do make good boxes for presents or to ship small items in.

    Yeah, I keep all my cardbacks in the SDCC Grayskull box. (The actual castle part is in my display cabinet.)

    I recycle the boxes and the card backs, as I have no need to keep either. I wish I could recycle the plastic, but even here in WA State #3 isn't taken that I'm aware of.
