I have a few other random pieces (lightsabers and a few helmets).
    I am now moving 500 miles away for a new job and am a bit nervous about how to transport some of this stuff.
    I have already packed the fighters and figures (everything is 3.75 Kenner/Hasbro scale stuff), but I have Jabbas sail barge, three large dioramas, a full size imperial shuttle, the Ewok village, several different full size at-ats, at-sts, at-acts, and b wings.
    How can I pack this stuff? I’m not sure what comes apart on these at-ats, and the barge is frankly, irreplaceable.

    I acquired this stuff piece by piece, and while I’m using movers, I’ve got to pack it obviously.
    I have a regular sedan so options are limited to transporting this Stuff myself.
    Any advice very much appreciated

    short of custom travel cases, just a lot of separate boxes with plenty of secure packaging would be my only guess.

    Wrap it in bubble wrap, and make sure to put the bubble wrap in the holes of the item, like the side of the sail barge. Then put it in a box with packing peanuts.
    When I was moving a few years ago, I had a collection of lego TIE Fighters. I did not wrap every nook and cranny, and as a result, they were all wrecked. WRAP
