Hmm... I have a ton of ARAH Joes in my parent's storage building and attic. In North Carolina. Where it gets both really hot and cold. In a non-temperature-controlled environment.
Oh well, they were fun as a child anyway. At least I took the batteries out before storing them. (I think.)

It has been my experience that a cool,dry place has been good for storage. I have a city built in my garage and its been there for years. The trick with cold toys is not to play with them until they are warm.
Sunlight and oxygen are the enemies of plastic, both are corrosive. So go out and find a dark airless enviorment to play and you will be fine.

Don't do it. Someone will either steal them all or the weather will destroy them. Nothing good can come of it - but you probably already know this by now - just chiming in.

No one laughed harder than I did when an entertainer joked about a large table being larger than some people's apartments --mine is two 1/2 rooms-- so I do appreciate the space issue.
But I have some training in preservation etc, and even a good garage is bad: even a carefully protected display of loose figures, in a garage for only a short time, in a cool, dry, well insulated garage, will still deteriorate faster in a garage than in a house. As mister-x said above, changing air is almost as bad as poor quality air. Then there's molds, car exhaust, insects, all sorts of problems with garages (attics are also bad).
That's my free advice, remember what you paid for it.

Did you say you start and leave your car running in the garage? Be careful. That can still be dangerous even with the door up.
