How do the resident tankers protect their figures and MIB displays from "Light Damage"?
I have two windows in my display room and the main window has a cloth-type shade that is always closed and the window above it has a similar shade to block direct sunlight.
I just have regular incandescent bulbs in my celing fan and a small Japanese-style lamp that are usually on during the evening.
I'm asking because I *think* I am seeing some light-damage to three of my comic packs from a couple of years ago that may be showing signs of fading. Oddly it's comic packs #21, #49 and #24. None of the others seems to be effected at all. Could it just be the dye on the paper was bad? None of the figures show light-damage.
How does everybody else protect their figures from light-damage? Do I need to swap my incandescent bulbs for CFL's?

I know it is nice to display your figures but Ultra Violet is nasty stuff on plastic. I had my Ace, Storm Shadow, and Payload go bad on me because of that.
Keep them all in opaque plastic storage case that you buy at Wally World. This is less dramatic but it keeps your toys from self destructing.
