This is all very interesting. I had no idea various lights could be damaging.

yeah...as I suspected..but will it harm the figure if it's in it's package? I mean it's nowhere near the light...very far from them as they're planted on the ceiling..the lights I mean lol

Incandescent light bulbs do more damage than fluorescent ones, as they produce much more heat.
I once placed a GIJoe figure next to one and part of his legs literally melted.

I've never heard about anything but sunlight and heat being enemies of them. I think newer toys are better protected but older ones like 80s stuff will fade and yellow, actually some of them yellow even if you keep them hidden away.
