I am having a hard time deciding which figures deserve a protective case around them. I am thinking of protecting those based on value/rarity. Here are the candidates:

Ep1 - I have finally gotten every figure

POTJ - Also have every figure

POTF2 - all Commtech including Wuher, Prince Xizor, Momaw Nadon (note Motti is in c.6 condition)

These are just my own standards, but maybe they will be of some help:
1. Rarity and Value
2. How much I like the cardback-The closer it looks to vintage, the more likely I'll keep one on card(OTC,SAGA2, TVC, ...)
3. Importance of figure-like one that's been wanted for a long time(Wilrow, Yarna, ...)
4. Cantina Characters
5. McQuarrie figures
6. Space Issue-I try to consider how much space I have to display my carded figures, which can be a real problem.
7. Cool factor-If there is a figure that I think is just really cool looking, than I'll keep one for card.

I bought 50 of the "all-series" Star Cases early this year and put all of my carded figures (except Ephant Mon and Hermie) into them...but I only have <50 carded figures, so it wasn't difficult to just star case them all.
