NC Mall Collectible Series
What are NC Collectibles?
NC Collectibles are special Neocash items that are released in the NC Mall monthly, on the first day of the month (or the first working day after that if the first happens to be in a weekend) and are for sale during the whole month. After this, they will retire. This means that the item for December 2012 went for sale on Monday December 3rd and has been set to retire on December 31st. After the item has retired, it will not be re-released again. NC Collectibles always cost 250 NC.
NC Collectibles come in themed series, that last for five months and will consist of five different items (except for the first series, which had six items). If you have bought all five items from the series, you will get a special bonus item when buying the last item of the series. You can only get this bonus item if you have actually bought all the items from a series. If you got one of them as a gift or by trading, you will not get the bonus item. However, once you've bought the collectibles, you can trade them or give them away. You do not need to hold on to them to the end of the series to get the bonus item. The bonus items from the NC Collectibles are often sought after and are interesting items for trading. You can only ever get one bonus item for each series, regardless of how many of the collectibles you buy. Even if you buy all of them three times, you will still only get one bonus.
Examples of such series are Heroes & Villians, The Royal Treatment and Daring Duos.

What sets NC Collectibles apart from other NC Mall wearable items is how these items can be placed in your NC Collectible Collector's Case. This option was intended to store your NC Collectibles and show them off. You can find a link to your NC Collectible Collector's Case on your user look-up.
Your NC Collectible Collector's Case looks like this:
Once you've placed items in your Collector's Case, they will show up like this. Shown here is the complete Daring Duos collection.
Placing and removing items
You can place an item in your NC Collectible Collector's Case by clicking on the item in your inventory, then choosing the option 'Put in NC Collector's album'.
Another option is going to your Collector's Case and click on the item you want to add. A message will show up and you can click the option 'add to album'.
To remove an item from your Collector's Case, you click on the item as well. This time, choose the option "Remove from Album'.
The Collector's Case has one major drawback: you cannot have an item in your closet and in your Collector's Case at the same time. This means as long as you have an item in your Collector's Case, your Neopets cannot wear it. Because of this, many people prefer to have their NC Collectibles in their closet rather than in their Collector's Case.
