Pretty cool - certainly not cheap though. $200 for air

although this one is about $135 shipped but still expensive - https://www.canlessair.com/product/s...ss-air-system/

Btw I hate the size of these boxes. Storing them is a pain

Do you guys have any tips for cleaning dust off statues? I don't have glass cabinets. I've heard compressed air works- is there a battery operated one that works as well?
Yeh it's a good idea to limit your collection to certain lines. I try to limit myself too otherwise my collection would be far bigger lol.

I don't clean mine lol. Recently I did move some figures from outside the glass cabinet to inside and did give them a brush down with a soft brush and wipe down with a damp micro fiber cloth. There were also 2 anime PVC figures that were seeping oil on the surface when I was redoing the light. So had to soak them in soapy water overnight and then hand wash it off. Then dab dry with microfiber cloth. Don't use tissue paper since it'll tear and leave bits behind. Thankfully the 2 figures weren't one of the really fragile ones with fiddly bits. That would've been annoying.

I've got one of those for work (I think its the one that does 400kmh air) and it nearly blew over one of the figures

Works well though. Don't use the canned air (or be really, really careful) from Officeworks as they can sometimes spray out the liquid, which freezes whatever it contacts.

These ones are posable and are 1/6 in scale.
