Box full of weirdos

...



To me, there's nothing that looks much cooler than a bunch of brightly-colored mini toys all mixed together. When I found this really nice, crystal-clear rectangular plastic container at the store the other day, I thought it'd make for a great way to display a bunch of random mono mini figures together. So I gathered an assortment of random little weirdos, tossed them all in the container, and wound up with something that has made my shelf look a lot cooler. Take a look at my "box full of weirdos" in the slideshow above.

Has anyone else done something similar to display pieces in your collections? I'd love to see pics!

  1. I have not made something like your clear box, which is totally awesome. I love all the colors of they toys together.
    I made a miniature display a while ago and put some glyos figures on it the other day. Scale was off, but it still looked pretty cool!

  2. This is the perfect way to display larger collection! It can be tedious and a bit clutterd to try and stand up every figure on a shelf. I learned this from my Dad who has many collections in a jar, such as marbles, matchbooks, and yo-yos. I've also done the same with LEGO and my sister-in-law stores her large PEZ collection in a jar. It's fun to try and spot different figures inside. I spotted an OMFG! figure in there.

    1. Nice! Everything just seems to look cooler that way.

      Yep, I think there's two OMFG figures in there. One might not be visible though.

  3. I used to keep my MIMPS in something similar, but then you run into the problem of the bleeding reds.

    1. Such a shame about the color staining. I love the look of a bunch of different color MIMP all mixed together.
