Burn's long fabled collection

Postby Burn » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:45 pm

For years i've spoken about my collection, but i've never been able to show it off as I lacked the room to display it.

But I have the room now and have begun unpacking! So here we go, the first pics as I slowly set up my collection!

Oh and i'm VERY open to tips on taking photos.

Image
Cabinet of Optimus Prime / Convoy / Ginrai

Image
G1 Autobots (top shelf filled)

Image Image Image

The Beasts
Image

Image Image Image Image Image


July 10 2011


That shelving system where the G1 were pictured? It's about 6 foot tall, very big.

Top Shelf - G1 Autobots (mostly pre-movie)
Second Shelf - G1 Decepticons (mostly pre-movie)
Third Shelf - G1 Autobots (mostly post-movie)
Fourth Shelf - G1 Decepticons (mostly post-movie)

Under that I could have added another shelf but it would haven't been very high, so I left it out opting instead for a big gap between the bottom and the fourth shelf. Initially I had Scorponok, Trypticon, Predaking, and a couple of Micromaster bases there with all the Micromasters in a different shelving system.

Didn't like that plan as Micromasters don't need a lot of room and it didn't matter where I put them, they were going to be taking up space that could be used for larger figures.

So I decided to build a tier system to go into the bottom shelf. Scorponok, Trypticon, and Predaking will move to the bottom shelf of the Beast shelves.

So here's some pics of the tier system in development. Would probably have finished the build this afternoon ... except I ran out of timber and the store is closed.

The brown slab of timber underneath is actually the spare shelf, used it for measuring up purposes.

Third Level

Painted up and in place


So now onto the fun part of putting all the Micromasters in place!

The whole cabinet has had more added to it.

MINI-CONS!

This was a project i've had in my head for a long time, display stands for the little buggers. Took me all Easter Long Weekend to cut, assemble and paint. And since then, off an on each weekend to put them all into place.

April 21 2013 Update
Fortress Maximus has taken up residence with the other City Bots and the Kabaya's

Image


December 29 2013 Update

Started re-arranging the room by consolidating as much of the Cybertron collection as I could. This freed up space for me to move (and subsequently expand) the Masterpiece display (pics will come when Streak and Smokescreen arrive).

By moving the Masterpieces I was also able to make room for the "modern" Titans)

Image


Now that I made room for the Masterpieces, I decided I needed to make room for TF:Prime figures. I have a large shelving system that houses G2, RiD and Animated and has a lot of unused space. Animated also takes up a second shelf. So I decided to use a tiered step to bring them all onto one shelf.

Image
Old Shelf #1
(Ignore the homeless Prime Decepticons)

Image
Old Shelf #2

Image
Tiered Step
(The shelves started off as two 90cm floating shelves. The first one I cut 4cm out of the middle so it would fit, the second I cut out 20cm from the length and 10cm from the width)

Image
They still all don't fit but they're more consolidated.


Oh and one last thing ... the Prime/Convoy collection continues to grow, and there was only one way for it to go. UP!

I like looking inside your house...

(if you're using a point and shoot digital camera, lots of light, stand back way further than you might expect to need to and take the pics at a high resolution. Crop down. Taking the pics too close will give you all kinds of lighting issues)

Show me your customs.

Show them with the Battle Blades, and do send ME an XS2 ionized null ray. For safety.

That collection is epic. I can't wait to see more of it.

I really like that custom black-and-white Ultra Magnus, too.

very very impressive collection you got there! nice set up too!

it's nice you have lots of tf lines to collect.
currently collecting only classics as of the moment. moving to different lines which i did way back was financially exhausting and can't really keep up with the times. i decided to streamline,sold them all and put all effort on collecting only classics.

more hauls to come 2012~!

Why thank you!

Unfortunately, and because of WFC Bruticus, i've got an idea for my CHUG shelves which expands on the Mini-con stands even more.

I don't really want to do it. :lol:

Only one new photo, but it's the sort of photo that a lot of collectors are proud to take when this piece is added to their collection.

I still like the tiered displays, makes everything look more 'organic' and cohesive. :APPLAUSE:

They do, and I'm learning how to do them right with each attempt (I'm the first to admit I have limited wood working skills).

Next step is to consolidate the RiD stuff which should make plenty of room for the TF:Prime stuff.

(And then work out where I'm going to put all the Kabaya ... might be time to get rid of PCC)
