How do you store figma parts?How do you store figma parts?Ask MFC

So I have too many figmas with too many parts. Currently all I do to store the parts is put them in the plastic bags they come with and put them in a drawer. I want to re-pose them sometimes, but digging out the bags to find the right one is a pain. And then for figures with long thin pieces (like swords and figma Archer's bow) I get worried that too many pieces and bags banging around will end up breaking them (as happened with figma Archer's bow once).

For nendoroids, I saw the really good idea to use tackle boxes with re-sizeable compartments (like this www.amazon.ca/d...). And they do work well as they generally fit face plates perfectly one per space. But it feels like there's a lot of wasted space for figmas (either because parts are too long or too narrow).

I checked the archive on MFC and I've seen other people ask this and the best answer seemed to be tackle boxes / resizeable container boxes, but the articles are many years old so I was curious, nowadays, how do other people store their figma parts? Any new options I'm missing?

jestersparade9 days ago#103967288ive seen people use big square storage containers with smaller drawers attached to sort out their nendoroid parts, possibly it could work for figma parts? otherwise you could possibly put them into small bags and label them then put them in a slimmer container (by grouping them together by stacking or etc) or a taller box.

Yeah a nail and screw / small hardware drawer is something I also saw people use.

I store them in a nail and screw bin case but you are right on the money on figuring out how to store the longer accessories. Those I keep in the figma bag they come with for now.

Since I don't have a lot yet I can easily store them in ITEM #1004219's box. I use a soft small cable I run through the bags' circular holes, organising them is a bit easier this way. Nothing fancy, but it works.

I store mine in a small block of A4 sized drawers from an office supplies shop. And since it's not very pretty, it's hidden inside the repurposed TV stand that's under my display cases. For the top drawer I was courageous enough to make some sections, complete with velvety lining... and then decided it was too much work and just left the 3 other drawers as is and relied on Figma bags for separation instead (though I often group characters of a same franchise in a single bag for easier browsing).

Drawer on the left for Figma parts, drawer on the right for other parts (Revoltech, Play Arts, scales, model kits, etc.)

I use a square shaped box and I just keep them, for the most part, in the plastic packaging that holds the extra pieces. I have a few parts that I just leave in the little zip baggies. For me, its easier to keep them all in one box and just lay the baggies on top, because I don't change out the parts too often.
