Nendoroid Maintenance: Box Album

Stack of Nendoroid boxes

There is one common issue plaguing the Nendoroid collectors around the world: space. Yep, with an average release rate of about 7 Nendoroids each month, it is obvious that the Nendoroid boxes are piling up fastly and sucking our precious room space.

So how can we solve this problem? Some folks suggested to fold the Nendoroid boxes, but a Japanese collector Kitsune-mimi pushed that idea even further: turn the boxes into an album! W-w-wha!? ( ゚ Д゚)

Here are some stuff you will need:

  • A cutter or a scissor
  • A (steel) ruler if you are using a cutter
  • A4-sized clear file folders

The first thing you need to do is putting the blister(s) out of the Nendoroid box. You may trash the blisters, as they are no longer needed.

Trimmed box

Afterwards, trim the Nendoroid box as seen in the photo above. How about the non-standard, larger-sized Nendoroid boxes? Well, you can trim it as you like, as long as it does not exceed A4 size.

Finally, put the trimmed Nendoroid box “papers” into the clear file folder. You may arrange it according to your preferences – see the above pic for some ideas.

That’s it – your own Nendoroid box album is now finished! Isn’t it easy? XD

Oh, and for the sake of completion, here are the Google-translated version of the original instructions:

Nendoroid box is standard size and same height, so short of A4,
You can be accommodated in A4 size clear file
I have also saved my entire case, but hacking the box
Up, down, right and discard, peel it off the inner box are also part of the window
I might think that space is whether this decrease in the
Wasted space is generated so that part of the state just fold it folded box
Become a significant capacity reduction by giving up a part that does not need to solve this problem and some
A direction that reduces the capacity of the file, but still worth putting to clear files pile up
Has become a box like you can feel free to access Nendoroid By making the file more than anything
It is also the biggest benefit

In the box that displays
Have trouble where you put the larger the box
Although primarily a lot of people like to keep the box and discard folded blister,
Getting out of the way even the box is increased still Nendoro
As a way to be seen as fully as material without discarding the box
I got it from our ancestors taught how to clear save file that truncate the unnecessary parts,
I also tell it to the next generation

So what are your own preferred method to store your piles of Nendoroid boxes, Nendonesian?

    This is a great idea! Although I like keeping the blister packs in case I want to store or resell the nendos, so this isn’t really an option for me ^^;

    Cool idea but I just keep all of my boxes in a cupboard… I can’t really open it any more because they all fall out >.<

    ~ MY BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW XD ~
    Why am I happy?!

    This is a really cool idea! not just for nendoroids but any figure boxes.
    I still need my boxes for transporting/storage though at the moment (I should be moving again by the end of this year)

    maybe one day though I’ll make my own nendoroid album ^^

    I remember doing something like this when I was a kid. My mom kept complaining about how the boxes of my zoids keep piling up, so she bought me a sketch book and ask me to cut and paste them inside it. But I’m not so sure I’ll do it with my nendos. ^^

    Genius :O

    I recycle all my boxes and the blister piece. Since I don’t have a house that I feel confident displaying them in I wrap them in copious amounts of bubble wrap and put them in containers together with my other figures. Just don’t have the space to hold (and move across the country when I do move) a bunch of empty boxes.
