    Thanks!

    They're LED and get very slightly warm – I'm not putting anything too close anyway, just to be extra careful!

    Any of you guys ever have sun damage your vinyl? I'm finally setting up a study/toy room and two of the walls (west and south facing) are floor to ceiling glass. I'm concerned about toys fading, I might have to get some UV plexiglass to front my shelves with...

    I know it'll fade paper products etc, just wondered if it's ever damaged vinyl toys.

    Yes, keep your vinyl toys (especially clear ones) the hell away from sunlight. Over time it will discolor the vinyl and fade the paint- at minimum.

    UV protective film for your windows could work. You can get it on Amazon, etc.

    It is true indeed, each one of toy player should be take care of it, strong light could destroy any vinyl toys, one of my friend's custom toys used to expose under the sun light and cabinet's LED light, soon his toys became sticky and fade. The whole case's toy just messed up :(

    I've seen clear turn yellow pretty quick due to light. I put my Balzac collection under UV plexiglas. Need to do the same for the rest.

    Errr, that really sucks. I doubt it was the LED lights though, unless there was direct contact.

    Yeah LED light is very safe for collectibles, I have stuff in my display cabinet for nearly 4-5 years and I on the display lighting quite often, so far they have been fine

    I didn't even know they made this stuff for windows?! Does it work? I see they have some clear UV film on amazon. I think this will be my next purchase because no matter what I do I get these thin lines of sun rays that are still getting through. They move in a line very fast and are gone in an hour but I can't keep remembering to put up that ghetto makeshift piece of cardboard when I leave for school in the morning.

    Would it be better to put the film on the windows of the house or on the cases? if it is a glass one of course.

    What kind of indoor lights can harm toys? I need to RnD this before I go buying fixtures and what not.

    LED is the best but most expensive. Old school halogen and incandescent light bulbs are the worst but cheapest. The new energy saving fluorescent with low heat emissions is bearable for toys and ranks in the middle.

    I would say if you spend a few k easily on your precious collection. Just go for LED and save the worries.

    This product was suggested by my mother who had done custom framing for over 10 years. She suggested it when I moved into a new apartment a few years back, and I was worried about all of my wall art in my new bedroom (which had a BIG ASS window that faced east).

    They make UV protective glass for framing (which does work), but I have yet to personally try the window film.

    The science is there :)

    I really wish Ian would take some shelf shots. I kind of want to see them a little closer ;)


    I researched online and some sites said this stuff has mixed results, some say it doesn't work, others yes...I'll give it a shot. I'm in the science field so we'll see :)

    Thanks Brent and Ralph!

    Don't look too closely yet - so far I'm happy with the Matango and MechaG shelves, but the rest is just (gently) chucked in for now. I've been too busy to unload shelves to start arranging! It took years to get the old cabinets assembled as I liked them. Hopefully soon ;)

    I'll take some Matango/MG photos soon Chris!
    I have one final M1 MG, waiting in Japan, to ruin my symmetry when he arrives!

    Ted, those shelves are now playroom storage. They were good but the thick door frames hid all the minis on the bottom shelves. My daughter has all her Character Building Doctor Who toys displayed on them now! I'll have to take a picture of them too...

    I've got a few collection shots I thought I'd put up. Some soft vinyl, some vintage american action figures. A nice selection, I think!
