What do you recommend for storing many 12″ action figures? I’m thinking something like clear stackable cubes with apothecary drawers.

I’m going to make the assumption that these are action figures that are played with, not collectible items that are still in their packaging. How you store these action figures will depend on how you’re planning to use them. Are they played with a lot? Do you need super-easy access to specific individual figures? If so, apothecary-style drawers that are labeled with what figure(s) is in each drawer might be great. Depending on how many action figures you have, however, those stackable cubes might have a pretty big footprint. If you (or your child) are willing to look through multiple action figures to find the one you want, then plastic shoe boxes or similar-sized containers might work well. If you have more figures than would fit in one container of that size, you could sort them into categories and place one category in each box, labeling the box for easy access. This would make it easier to find an individual toy than if you put all your figures in one container. But it’s not as labor-intensive as putting each figure in its own drawer and labeling it.

    They need to make the xmas tree bins Longer by 5 inches we had to cut a hole in one end and than tape it to keep unwanted critters out. largest bin I found was 50g. 170in. should be 55g 185inches that would be perfect.
