    Yeah, I think you have the standard issue bag-o-body parts. I store mine by character then put the individual bags in an empty MOTUC mailer with a fancy color version of the classics logo with "Accessories box #1" ( 2, etc.. ) on it. Been thinking about a tackle box or a large flat parts / bead sorter type of box.

    My looks like that too! The only difference is I keep King Hiss' body in a separate bag because it likes to stick to other crap. Hahaha. I think we all do this.

    Sorry dude, but that is the exact method I use.

    I use a small "treasure chest", I got it at an arts and crafts store, looks cool, sets with the figures and holds EVERYTHING, without bending the longer staff/spear items.

    Heheh, I also have the giant Ziploc bag of random accessories! The only thing I did differently is that I sorted out related accessories into smaller Ziplocs within the larger bag. For example, I have separate bags for Power Swords/halves, alternate heads, Roboto/Trap-Jaw/Horde Prime/Hurricane Hordak arm attachments, palace guard/Battle Armor chest plates, small weapons, random hand accessories, staffs, etc.

    Yep, mine looks very similar to this too. Makes it a nightmare when I'm looking for particular accessories, but I can't think of anything better that won't take up a large amount of space.

    I have all of my extra weapons scattered around Granamyr like it is his pile of loot. But everything else is using the Bag-o-stuff storage method.

    Ugh guys, really?

    I keep all my weapons, accessories, and extras in many different ziplock bags. I usually pack them all very particularly to prevent scuffing, warping, and paint transfer.

    -Male figures are all placed in quart-sized bags with there head and legs turned to the sides. Females usually fit in sandwich bags.

    -All 'like' weapons (power swords/halves) are placed in whatever smaller craft store baggies that will fit them. All these smaller bags are then placed in larger gallon-sized bags dedicated to a particular faction (Eternal Protectors, Evil Warriors, Horde, Cosmics, etc).

    -Heads are the #1 culprits that you don't want scuffed or discolored. I put them in their own individual bags. 2"x 3" usually works for most but larger heads (She-Ra w/hair) might go in snack bags. All heads are then put in the gallon-sized "heads" bag.

    I label a sandwich size zip lock bag for each figure and store them by faction in small plastic totes. The totes I use I'm pretty sure were designed for makeup but they hold quite a but so it works. Also, the sandwich bags are usually big enough to accommodate the figure as well if you don't want to display them or just them up for awhile.

    I got a small plastic drawer set at Wal-mart with very thin drawers and it easily holds multiples of every classics weapon to date. I'd never store then in a baggie all jumbled like that. I'd be afraid what condition they would be in when I got them out. Everything would be bent and possibly have paint rubbed off.

    You know,this is actually a nice problem to have. All of the other 6 and 7 inch lines contain very little accessories,most contain none.

    When I open mine,I was thinking of doing a kind of tackle box see-through divider,then having labels on each compartment.

    If I tossed mine in a bag like that,I would be one here everyday with"who does this belong to?" threads.

    Mine are in a baggie also, but a tackle box, or craft box, or sewing box would, or something similar would be the best way to store stuff like this. Also being a box if you put something on it you wouldn't have to worry about weight breaking anything.

    I used to have them all in a boring box. I now have all of my extra goodies stored in a cool Rudy Obero Granamyr box! It makes for a very nice collector case in my opinion
