    I have been keeping them, and now we've been packing to move, so they've all been un-flattened and re-filled with MotUC figures. I don't know if I will continue to keep them after we move.

    I probably will. I'm OCD that way, I guess.

    I keep one of each for my MOC figurs, and I keep all of the empty white mailers in large 'U-Move' boxes in the garage in case we ever move!

    Recycled. That is why I hope Mattel never decide to make these collectible in any way. No need to have pictures on them because next thing you know there will need to be a mailer to keep the white mailer from getting damaged. I can see the uproar now. Petition to add a mailer to the white mailer to avoid damage.

    Mind you I could always start a new collection MIMWM - Mint In Mint White Mailer. with uncut tape

    I'll probably regret is one day, but I toss the mailer boxes and packaging with the exception of the card backs and box backs. I just don't have the room with two large toy collections. I keep my display to an old entertainment center; I rotate out when I have enough new acquisitions to do so. Motuc will be the first line I actually buy a couple books shelves to display everything; though if it goes the gijoe route and gets all vehiclely that may change. Until a few months ago I had every motuc to that point moc and one opened; as my newborn neared one, I realized that storage space is needed for much more precious and meaningful storage. While I like that the boxes are to protect the figures, it is kind of annoying because there are questions of MOC and MISB because of them.

    But the Boxes are a must keep for me!
    You're absolutely right, Eternianghost: I've seen people selling boxes on Ebay (and yes, there was actually a bidding, not that expensive, though). I just keep everything: boxes, cards, blisters... everything! Mwuhahaha

    The ones that came with the figures I opened are thrown away but I my whole MOC collection is kept in the white boxes for now due to a lack of space.

    I keep all of my white mailer boxes, but I don't consider them collectible.
    I consider them practical for storage and moving purposes.
    I'm not sure I'm a fan about them putting the characters names on them though. I was content with just the part number as the only identifier.

    If anyone is looking to get rid of their mailer boxes, check out my post in the marketplace section. I am missing four mailers.

    I would recommend trying to hook up with one of them and seeing if anyone needs the ones you have.

    Check the threads complaining about about the new 'shipping practices'...
    Well don't laugh, I just saw a listing on ebay of someone selling an empty King Grayskull 1.0 box for $40.

    First post.. Hi

    I keep my MOC collection in their white boxes at the moment. For my loose collection I display the figures and I keep the packaging in the mailer with any accessories I don't display/use much.

    The first time I get any figure they go to my MOC collection. The second I get of a character goes to my loose.

    Do you save mailer boxes?

    I wanted to. But I don't think I can. Too space consuming.

    I have been saving mine, but they do take up to much space. I even flatten mine!

    I've been saving them with the packages placed back inside, but I'm getting really close to tossing them all in the recycling bin.

    I do not save mine.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
