    How to store POP figures?

    Hi folks,

    I need to pack my figures away for some time, I started to put all my motu figures in acid-free zippy-bags. No problem.
    But how should I store my POP figures away. I mean should I seperate the figures from their clothes?
    I'm afraid that if a figure gets sticky and it is in contact with it's clothes that the clothes are getting spots.

    Can you share some of your experiences or ideas?
    Thank you.

    Terrific question - I'd be interested in hearing the answer too! I have no idea.

    Surely customizers out there have some thoughts...

    I have never had any trouble with sticky clothing, except for shower power catra's cape, bubble power she-ra's cape, and possibly netossa's silver clothing. Seems the metallic fabrics don't hold up quite as well... But most of PoP do just fine in storage, in my experience.

    Granted, I don't have any POP figures worth wrapping yet, but the soft plastic cases should work too, right? My first figures are en route, and I wouldn't mind more info either.

    I usually put each figure in a ziploc bag and store them in a rubbermaid tote. They've been in storage for years at a time, and I've never had a problem. Like LadyAngora said, they only sticky clothing I've encountered is the metallic stuff. Everything else holds up just fine.
