Attics and/or basements were not made to store toys. I'd say it's better to be safe and keep them somewhere close to room temperature or thereabouts, in a place where you don't have to be too concerned about sunlight, moisture, or extreme temperatures.

I had mine in a basment in new york for years and never had any problems. I moved to florida and had them in the attic and the stickers were meltting off. And i only think sun light and smoke can turn them yellow. Well the white stuff.

I store all my figures in blocks of ice.

Cold is fine for storing.
Remember you can crack open figures by filling the torso's with water and freeze them.
That's the most preferable technique for Starcom figures. No problem with cold there!
The only major problem would be if you play with the figures in the cold,
move the parts a lot, they can easily break because the plastic gets brittle when it's cold.
When I was a kid, I had many newly bought figures in the winter that broke after a few days when I played with them.
Many broken arms, legs, for joe's the frustration of broken thumbs.
I was never rough on them and valued my toys a lot.
So it was super frustrating to say the least!
By all means cold is still way better vs heat because in the heat they will melt.
The best climate to play would be a normal controlled climate around 60 degrees Farenheit / 20 degrees Celcius.
The UV from the sun is what discolors the plastic.
White is the most common to turn yellow, but all other colors can also discolor to a darker or brighter color which isn't as notable compared to white plastic until you get a new version and compare it!
