    So I like Marvel Figure Factory, (Despite them cancelling FF3) but what the hell to I do with the near 15 little crates I have? I can likely use a couple......but I have a lot.

    What do you guys do with them?

    I don't own them myself, nor do I display my toybiz stuff in dioramas around my room.

    However, if I did have a set up with some dioramas, I'd probably take all the crates and set them up warehouse style, with Spiderman jumping over a few and Doc Ock knocking a bunch over. Basically, do up the scene from the 90's TAS.

    Not doing dioramas, I'd probably throw them out.

    Another option, should you want to hang on to them, is display the figures on top or in front of the boxes. It would take up a little more space, but not by much. I usually keep my boxes for statues, busts, and Medicoms, and I do that a lot.
    You can get pretty creative with it, really makes quite the nice display. IE, take them and put them in a Pyramid-Staircase like set up, then place a row of figs in front on the bottom, then one each on top of the available spots.

    The last option which I've never liked, is box them up. Throw them in a plastic box and toss it in your basement or garage or closet or something. A box full of boxes. Waste of space, IMO.

    Oh, another good one- presents for your lady friends- tell them it's a jewerly box.

    I've seen people stack the crates up and display the figs on top of them. You could do the same thing and have a heiracry of the ones you like best starting with the best on top and working down.

    That's exactly what I use 'em for. Works well I find too. :up:
    I did have a picture of my MFF display on the crates but I can't find it. Must have deleted it for some reason...

    Well, if the crates are big enough, you can always have a random Legends character with superhuman strength heaving one over his head...

    i wish the crates were big enough to put the cards in them. i'll probably use a couple of my crates to hold change.

    Damn, how did I forget about the time I shipped this guy's finger to his wife in one of those crates. Dumb guy actually paid me to ship the finger to see if his wife would be willing to pay the ransom. Dumb ass.

    Now he's divorced. And missing a pinky.

    Atleast he's also missing a gold digger.

    Oops.

    if you want some condoms to ship to people ftb, they have them used on amazon. you could probably get a better deal.
