Where Do Your Toys Go When Undisplayed? (Transformers Battle Beasts)

I've been wanting to do a visual look at my collection being displayed over the last 20 years but just haven't gotten very far with it. One thing that did catch my eye when looking over pics was how I was storing things when they were not up for display. I don't take great care of a lot of my stuff, or at least that's what I thought when viewing things through the measure of how others have stored their items.

For instance, take a look at my Battle Beasts collection. I've had these Beasts stored in this same 1986 McDonalds Happy Meal pail since I bought them. Sure I've bought others Beasts and Beastformers that didn't go in here, but some new things did. I wonder how many others just drop Crystal Killer Fish figures into a bin for storage. Most would think I'm crazy for just keeping my Beasts like this, especially the $60-$70 Killer Fish.

I think what it comes down to is that these are my toys. These are not my investments. I want to enjoy these and if I need to buy more to replace a broken item, then I can. I am far from an anti-MISB guy, because as an artist the box can be just as eye pleasing in design as the toy. But I can't accept the toys as investments idea, and maybe that's one reason I keep so much of my stuff in storage as I do.
